Saluting Vets with Food

It seems to have become a tradition - feeding veterans on Veterans Day.  Plenty of restaurants do it, Golden Corral and Applebees are a couple that come to mind, and the WIKY Morning Show, too, with our Sixth Annual Vets Breakfast aboard the LST 325. 

When we decided we wanted to do something special for Tri-state vets six years ago, the LST hadn't been docked in Evansville for that long and we weren't sure if they wanted to do anything like a free breakfast.  They didn't hesitate to agree and it's been going on every year since.

Merry Electronic Christmas!

As my wife Lora and I walked into the Walmart in Newburgh last night, we were greeted by a large, decorated Christmas tree inside the door.  Really can't complain that it's too early, it's November after all, but it does force you to start thinking about what to buy as gifts this year.

What's the most patriotic month?  Most would say July because of Independence Day.  Others might say May - Memorial Day remembers the ultimate sacrifice of service men and women in defense of our freedom.

I submit November as the most American of months.  Especially this November.  An election day on the 2nd, Veteran's Day on the 11th, and Thanksgiving on the 25th.  Three opportunities this month to celebrate America. 

I Hate Autumn

I hate Autumn and by that I mean, I love Autumn.  It's the most pleasant weather of the year.  But the days after Halloween, plunging headlong toward the big Fall and Winter holidays, grow shorter and shorter and become a constant deadline on squeezing in a few more warm season activities before we're locked inside for the Winter with the kids.

Things Your Trick or Treaters Never Tell You

A website recently compiled a few rules of thumb for trick or treaters and what's funny is that they still apply, no matter how many years it's been since you last went door to door on Halloween.

1. Old people are either very generous or give you one peanut. There is no in-between.

Can You Fake a Smile?

According to the experts, you can't fake a smile.  You may think you can, but it's a pretty hard thing to do if you know what to look for.  Diane and I were talking about it this morning. 

Everyone has two smiles, according to the article from the Wall Street Journal - a real smile and a fake smile.
