Santa For Seniors – Tad Pole’s Favorite Cause

There's always a lot of great causes this time of the year, but I think I like Santa For Seniors best.  Obviously I might be a bit prejudice towards a cause supported by Big Frog, but this one always reminds me of my grandparents.  They both passed away in nursing homes and I remember the smiles wh

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Going Up

If you decide to visit New York City during the "Frog Days of Fall", one must-see stop is the huge Christmas Tree that they put up in Rockefeller Center every year. This year's tree is a Norway Spruce that came from Mifflintown, Pennsylvania, and is 75 feet tall (I doubt that we have ceilings high enough for that one in the McShea household).

Don’t Monkey Around When Re-Gifting

As we rapidly move through the "Frog Days of Fall" toward the holiday season, Christmas shopping is really starting to heat up. And, there's always a temptation to give someone a gift that someone else gave you, and you don't want (don't re-gift fruitcakes, that's too obvious).

Who Do You NOT Want To See This Thanksgiving?

Yes, the holiday season is here and Thanksgiving is fast approaching. And, for many, this is a time when they get to see family and friends around the table, eating, laughing and having a good time. But, for some, it's a time when you see the people you really don't want to see--it's that once-a-year holiday visit that seems to last forever. So, who is it? Who is the person you are least looking forward to seeing this Thanksgiving? If you said your in-laws, you're not alone.

A November To Remember

The "Frog Days of Fall" are moving rapidly, and it with them many notable events on the calendar. November is not exactly the most scenic month - most of the leaves are down from the trees (and on my front lawn); we usually get lots of rain, sometimes mixed with snow; and the ground hasn't frozen yet, so lots of mud!

How Are Dum Dum Pops Made? [VIDEO]

Happy Halloween! Yes, today's the day you're going to get all dressed up and go trick-or-treating. You're going to get tons of candy. And, you're probably going to sift through it all to pick out the stuff you love and will keep all to yourself and the candy you don't like  and let the older people have. For me, my favorite candy was, and still is, the Dum Dum Pop. I think I like them so much because of their simplicity. It's a small lollipop--can't get much more simple than that. If you have had a Dum Dum Pop in the last few years, have you ever come across the mystery flavor? Well, there are mystery flavors in every bag and you never know what you're going to get. Now, in honor of Halloween, here is a video of how Dum Dums are made from the Food Network. The video also tells how they make the mystery flavors. Enjoy. What's your favorite candy?

How Much Are Spending On Halloween This Year?




Halloween--one of my favorite holidays. No presents to buy and it's fun had by all. A time to dress up for a day and become someone else. But, with the Halloween season comes the bill for costumes and decorations--well, unless you make homemade costumes and decoration, but even so, you still have to buy the supplies, right? How much are planning on spending this year on Halloween festivities? According to a survey by Savers, Inc., "a family of four expects to spend $300 to costume, decorate and otherwise celebrate the holiday."

What Kellie Pickler Learned From Her Grandpa [AUDIO]

Grandparents Day is this Sunday. The official observance came into being in 1978 when President Carter designated the first Sunday after Labor Day as the day we salute "Nana and Pop-pop" or "Grammie and Paw-paw" or whatever you called your grandparents.  Kellie Pickler recalls what valuable skill she learned from her grandpa.
