Here Come Santa Claus (Sort of)
There are a number of funny Santa videos, but this one is for real. I first saw this video on MSNBC a couple of years ago, and it's hilarious. Apparently, a guy dressed as Santa was supposed to hop down from the garage roof into a pick up truck with his sack full of toys for the kids, but slipped. L…

Some Outdated Christmas Gifts

It’s Christmas Cookie Time
At this time of year, I feel like the "Cookie Monster". Those Christmas cookies are everywhere, and if I ate all the cookies that arrive at the radio station every day, I wouldn't be able to fit through the Big Frog 104 studio door!
Our Favorite Christmas Tree Ornaments
We all have our favorite Christmas tree ornaments, unless you let the family decorate the tree and just sit back and say, "Looks nice" when it's done. I always help decorate the tree with the family, and like doing it (except when the lights won't work and you can't …

During these final few "Frog Days of Fall", the Christmas shopping really starts to heat up. Today is "Green Monday", a day many online shoppers recognize as the day to start ordering those gifts to assure delivery by Christmas.
Getting The Perfect Christmas Tree
We always like a real Christmas tree for the holidays. The other day, my wife and I got our McShea family Christmas tree (no, not an adventure like getting the Griswold family Christmas treee), but we did get the perfect Christmas tree. During these later "Frog Days of Fall", for t…
A Holiday Favorite TV Commercial
Once in a while, a TV commercial can convey emotion, especially during the holidays. And sometimes, the feeling that you get from a commercial has more to do with your holiday memories than the product they're selling. Here's one you may have seen that creates an image of an old-fashioned …
