One Hundred Sixteen Years, and Countin'...

One million visitors!
Geez-o-pete!  How'd you like that many folks trekking through your place?

 No. thank. you.

Not so, at the world-famous rodeo of Texas!
"Keep 'Em Comin" (guests that is) should be their motto,
as the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo 'rounds up' their last week of Cowtown fun.
After 116 years, this action NEVER gets old.

If you've ever wanted to experience the 'real deal' of the old west, this is the place. It's like Graceland is to Elvis.  And believe it or not, you can still see a real LONGHORN cattle drive, just like at the turn of the century, only this one happens twice a day!

Before you 'head 'em up, and move 'em out', be sure to check out the history behind the famous Ft. Worth Stockyards here.  While you're at it, get in the dancin' mood with good 'ole Texas 'red dirt' country, from The Ranch.
There's no question with this are 'guar-an-teed' a tall Texas, two-steppin' good time...even after 116 years!
Happy Trails...and

'Don't Mess with Texas'!...Dublin, that is!

In 1885, what has become known as the state drink of Texas, 'Dr. Pepper' was originally created in the western frontier town, called Waco. So wild it was back then, that the town's nickname was 'Six-Shooter Junction'!
Dr. Pepper became such a popular fountain drink, that people came from miles around to sample the unique drink made with Imperial Pure Cane Sugar. 
The little town of Dublin, Texas became the home for the original Dr. Pepper Bottling Plant, which has continued making the exact recipe for over a hundred years - until now. 
This month, the Snapple Group has decided to move the over 100-year-old production plant of Dr. Pepper, leaving the town with little more than memories.  And a museum.  One thing is certain...

In Texas, anything and everything goes better with a Dr. Pepper!
Bake a cake or barbeque beef- you can't go wrong with Texas' favorite soft drink!

Pick Your Plum....

Pick your Whaaaat??
A cool little site called 'Pick Your Plum' (check it out now!), goes out and about and brings back some really serious 'Deals of the Day!"  Seriously!!
So, when I saw an offer for the cutest spring cupcake wrappers, I knew I had to have 'em!  Before I could order, the very next day, I got an email from PYP offering up these wonderful Valentine tags!  You guessed it...I had to have 'em!

What's neat about 'Pick Your Plum', is that they do all the research for you, they find the deals, and they get a maximum order number, which they share with the rest of us!  Still can't believe it?  Hop on over and see for yourself what they offer for PENNIES at 'Pick Your Plum'!

Talkin' Twang!

No, I don't mean my Texas drawl that apparently can come out every now and then....but the cocktail candy made right down the road (okay maybe not THAT close) in San Antonio!  When I first saw their display last year in Vegas at The Idea Factory, I was smitten! (With a 'twangy' taste, this kind of candy goes good around the rim of your martini glass!)  Every color and every flavor were out in Vegas for you to taste, and boy were they good!

The 'Twang' company is probably better known for their Beer Salt or Lemon-Lime Rimmers, however, go to their website, choose a flavor for yourself... like Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, or Mint Chocolate Rimming Sugar....and get hooked!  I sure did!  They also make great gifts, just like the 'Raspberry Rimming Sugar' that I gave this New Year's Eve....along with a little rolled-up drink recipe, and mini martini glass!  You'll be celebrating in no time!

                                      Cheers to a Happy New Year!
