It's almost fair time. One of the best things about the fair, any fair is the food. Of course the State Fair of Texas is the king of strange but tasty foods. The best foods for this year were announced on Sunday.
It's that time of year. Summer is hot and muggy and we all need a tasty treat to cool down. I don't think I'm alone when I say a good snow cone is more than just a treat it's a blessing on a hot summer day.
Summer is all about being outside, enjoying friends and family and great BBQ. The trick is trying to put all of them together and not spend a fortune. It can be done. I found some great tips on how to throw a BBQ but keep the prices down.
Now, I'm not saying "it's the thought that really counts" doesn't apply to Father's Day. All I'm saying is that if you're gonna put forth the effort, might as well have some inside information on what dad likes.
School will be out soon and then it's official, vacation time. The great thing is you don't have to go very far to have a great vacation. My husband and I went to Tyler, Texas, last weekend to visit our friend, Lane. What a blast!
Texarkana is growing. New business and restaurants are opening up but what about grocery stores? For years it's been Albertsons, Walmart and Super One. Oh, and of course those rumors of HEB coming to town. Yes, those are still rumors.
