Dam Fireworks Show at Lake Tyler

This time last year we were feeling the heat here in East Texas with 100-plus degree days. Add to that about 95 percent of the state of Texas was under a burn ban and that put a damper on Fourth of July celebrations.  What a difference a year makes! It’s a bit wetter although just as humid, but we’re able to shoot our fireworks this year (so far at least)!

What East Texas Post Offices Are Open Late For Tax Day?

Whether you’re due a refund or you gotta pay Uncle Sam, your federal taxes will need to be postmarked by midnight Tuesday, April 17.  From past experiences, I’ve learned that if people are expecting a refund they’ll get their taxes done just as soon as that W-2 arrives in the mail, but those thinking they’ll have to pay a little or a lot will wait until the deadline to file that tax return (which I don’t blame them!).

America & Milk’s Favorite Dunkable Turns 100

When it comes to eating an Oreo, I can’t eat just one because I have to separate at least 3 or 4 of them to make a super Oreo!  I’ll scrape the creme filling off and pile it all on top of one and save it to eat last!  Whether you eat your Oreo like I do or eat just the filling or the cookie part I’m sure you’ve been doing it that way for years.  Nabisco/Kraft is celebrating big today, because its the 100th birthday for Oreo!
