High-Tech Alternative To Puppy Is Amazing

Do you have a child who desperately wants a puppy for Christmas? There's nothing cuter than a child's face lighting up at the sight of a little four-legged fuzz ball under the tree. But that kind of gift comes with a lot of responsibility. Who's going to feed, walk, and clean up after it? Unless…

Great Read For Kids And Families

Yesterday morning, Phil and I were discussing Christmas. I mentioned on-air that I grew up Jewish. My parents divorced when I was four years old, and my Dad remarried when I was six. The winter of 1976, we had our first Christmas tree. We only did it that year. My Dad and step-mom thought it…

Drive-In Christmas Movies Return To Concord

I feel like I missed out on a common experience of growing up in America. My parents never took me and my sister to drive-in movies. I don't why. Maybe they were worried we would spill snacks and soda on the upholstery. But isn't that part of the whole deal? In any case, I've been…

You know the holiday season has arrived when Oprah's "Favorite Things List" comes out. Today, Oprah's 2017 list was released. There are some usual suspects on the list, such as comfy clothes, shoes, and scented candles. Also on the list, some amazing food stuff! I obviously like to eat, since everything I want on this…

Advent Calendars Have Come A Long Way

Do you remember getting Advent calendars when you were a kid? If you actually had any self-discipline at that age, and not many of us did, you would look forward to opening only one little window and eating only one piece of chocolate each day. However, if you were like me, you would knock out…

The Sears Wish Book Is Back

Do you remember the thrill of poring over the toy-filled pages of the Sears Wish Book? Dating back to 1933, the Wish Book was as much of a holiday tradition as picking out the family Christmas tree. No red-blooded American child (or adult, for that matter) could resist leafing through Sears' glossy gift-laden catalog. The…
