This Christmas is turning out to be a potentially bad season for Santa Claus.
You can trust that Christmas is in good hands with Donny and Marie Osmond.
Not many artists get the opportunity to really understand how much they're loved and cherished in their lifetime. Singer-songwriter Jesse Winchester is one of the lucky few.
Last week, I shared five winterish projects all gardeners could do during the colder "inside" months from late fall through winter to improve skills, have fun and be productive, too. This week I conclude this two-part series with five more activities to keep your hands in the dirt, or at least thinking about it.
Let's try some interesting Christmas home decorations on for size.
WASHINGTON-It has always been a Bob Cratchit/Ebenezer Scrooge sort of business..."empty as a banker's heart" and so forth.
When Holly and Jeff Nelson heard about the offer, they could scarcely believe it.
Looking for some mood music for the season? Each year I choose the best, worst and mostly in between. Here's this year's Christmas sack:
12-05-13 - PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - Christmas got a whole lot jollier for waitress-bartender Amanda Retrum and 10 other employees who worked the late shift at a bar here - they'll share a $5,000 tip left that night by an anonymous customer.
O Earth peace, good will to man . . . but on the highway, not so much.
Every Christmas I love hanging large, decorated stockings on the fireplace mantel, but then I have to fill them. And with multiple stockings to stuff, it can get pretty pricey, so this year I decided to make my stocking stuffers. I discovered that in addition to cutting my holiday spending, it gives me the freedom to personalize each present in a way that just isn't possible with store-bought gifts.
The holiday season is upon us. Beautiful lights twinkling everywhere indicate that Christmas is coming soon, so here are some decorating ideas for your home in these next fun-filled weeks.
WASHINGTON - Since Jimmy Carter's utter miscalculations led to the installation of a radical theocracy in Iran, the Persian nation has become a thorn in the world's body politic - a rogue state in many ways fostering terrorism and preparing a nuclear capability that frightens most of its neighbors.
The Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog, a seasonal guilty pleasure, arrived on the desk with a solid thud, bespeaking the 175 glossy pages of improbable, and improbably expensive gifts, inside.
What can we be thankful for this holiday season?
Thanksgiving makes us want to decorate our homes in a very warm and inviting way. Here are some ideas to make the dining table special this year.
As families gather this week for Thanksgiving dinner, some might have more on their plate than turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. Family gatherings can be an ideal time to dish up something extra: the money talk.
I have lined up my Christmas presents this year for our President, Barack Obama, and for his Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius.
11-19-13 - Every year, our Christmas gift giving goes something like this:
Shopper alert: It's less than two weeks 'til Black Friday and about six weeks 'til Christmas.
LAKE CITY, Tenn. - Lawyers warning of possible copyright and trademark violations stemming from this town's vote to rename itself Rocky Top Tennessee say they want to enter talks with city officials and would-be developers over the move.
11-13-13 - Christmas is coming and the fact that Thanksgiving has not yet arrived is no deterrent.
Warm smells of Banana Cake filled my kitchen, blending with abundant memories of a generation slipping into shadows, including the recall of old businesses such as A&P stores that once thrived nationwide.
November is like an early Christmas for video game enthusiasts, heralding the first major overhaul of the two largest gaming console systems, Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's PlayStation, in nearly eight years.
