There's a lot of competition for her holiday spending dollars. So where do you fit in with all the sales circulars. Unless your station has or is going all Christmas you might feel left out. Don't, she still wants to hear her favorite songs and connect with you. Statistics show that sticking with a close friend through the holidays increases good times and helps to ward off depression. Adding the holiday happenings onto an already packed calendar can stress a gal out. But it doesn't have to. Come along side of her by providing a festive atmosphere, coupons if possible, gift tips and the best location to get a cute LBD ( little black dress).
Cookie exchanges, Secret Santa's, Holiday pictures, trips to the mall. Kids Christmas pageants are in rehearsals, church choirs are working through Handel's Messiah's and many are working a second job to provide supplemental income to pay for the holiday.
If she cooks she'd love to have the time to Martha Stewart" out but often what looks easy on television or in a magazine isn't always that way when it gets time to do it yourself. A lot of her good ideas will get left behind because of time.
She's probably working overtime today either at work so she can enjoy that Thanksgiving holiday with returning to a desk piled high with 'stuff'. Or she's packing up a family to travel or preparing for guests. Sheets are getting laundered, suitcases and kids are getting packed up and frozen turkeys are thawing. Hopefully he turkey is thawing. Maybe a reminder from you is just what's needed to keep this holiday season on track.

Saturday morning I woke to the tail end of Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" followed by a listener 'groan" then a perky response of 'I want what she's having for breakfast" into a Sue O'Neal CBS-FM jingle. It was a great break; fun, forward and chick, handled by a female ...

"Story has a fever" read the text sent to me from my daughter. Story is the name of our cat and he was burning up as per my kid. A trip to the vet confirmed that yes this cat had a fever of 105 degrees, the normal temperature for a cat is 100 a 101, a fact I'd probably ...

A Tracy Johnson idea called "So You Think You Can Carol," is a bit in the works for me. I've decided it was not to my benefit to play someone who can't really sing since my station is all Christmas, but someone who really can carol seems to make this season merry and ...
December 5, 2013Wrap
The way a toy is packaged makes for a difficult retrieval of someone's favorite gift in Christmas morning. Have you ever seen how Elmo, Barbie or GI Joe is clamped, taped, tied and hermetically sealed? It's hard with scores to opens these treats. I'm going to purchase ...

I'm waiting in an unexpected car repair. Thankfully my mechanic (whose voicemail was full) showed me some favor when I showed up first thing in the morning to see of there were any openings. He took me right away. She tip: having a good relationship with a good ...
December 3, 2013Ham
I received a full size Honey baked ham and roasted turkey breast as a gift. Translated I have lunch and dinner for my family for the next week at least (not counting the soup I'll make with the home bone) this is one of the best gifts I could receive. It saves me time ...

November 29, 2013Careful Out There
It's Black Friday. My question is are the deals many wake up early to hopefully get for themselves or another ? And after it's all said and done and come January was it worth it? Shout out all the holiday workers today, and the unsung hero that works in regardless of ...

For the first time, Butterball is enlisting the help of men as well as women for its Turkey Talk Line during the holidays. And the turkey seller is using the first male talk-line spokesman this year as well. The talk line, which is 32 years old this year, has long ...
