Another Year Without Dick Clark On New Year’s Eve [VIDEO]

Another New Year's Eve tonight without Dick Clark, the creator of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" which first aired in 1972. Every New Year's Eve, the TV in the McShea household was tuned to that show, and Dick Clark never let us down. Even after his stroke a few years back, he courageously continued with help from Ryan Seacrest. Tonight, ABC rings in the new year with Ryan Seacrest.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving [VIDEO]

One of our favorite holiday TV features is "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving", a must-see in the Greg McShea household. It seems like the "Peanuts" gang has an animated TV special for just about every holiday, and while this one isn't their best, it's fun to watch. We would sometime miss seeing when it was on TV, so our daughter bought us the DVD of it a few years ago.

Ever since I was a kid, the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" has been a tradition in the McShea household, and it still is.

What Are You Thankful For

We lost a great man. Robert 'Chris' Ellis passed away Thursday. Chris was a member of Heron Creek Golf Club and we had the privileged to play with him several times.  Monday night we paid our respects at Heintz Funeral Home in Clinton and waited in a line almost 2 hours long. It was so touching to see how many lives Chris touched, not only to my husband and I but to his wife Susan.

The Secret to the Juiciest Turkey You’ll Ever Eat
