Wow Cookie Dolls Kit
This is brilliant on so many levels. This is not a multi-national corporation. It's local, it's family owned and operated, and it's fun for the entire family, including grandma.

Where's Guy Ripley When You Need Him?

The best show at The Chicago Theatre was Family Guy Live. However, as far as news parodies go, this guy is genius. By the way, Baby doesn't suck. Floating head does suck. Was Guy Ripley not covering this scandal involving The William?

El Paso Christmas Lights 2008

"This is the third year for the El Paso Christmas Light Show. The lights again are in sync with music by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Something special about this year's show is that it was viewed live by a few of the members of TSO before their concert in town. They were amazed with the show and gave the light show 4 STARS at their show the following day. The show will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. The house is located at 12001 Paseo De Oro which is at the corner of Montwood and Bob Mitchell. Hope to see you at El Paso's finest Christmas light show tradition three years running." - Adrian Hernandez

Thanks, Fred, but I'm glad I'm not your neighbor.

REQUIRED VIEWING: Young@Heart

When the Young@Heart Chorus began in 1982 the members all lived in an elderly housing project in Northampton, MA called the Walter Salvo House. The first group included elders who lived through both World Wars. The current performers in Young@Heart range in age from 73 to 92. There are some with prior professional theater or music experience, others who have performed extensively on the amateur level, and some who never stepped onto a stage before turning eighty. None of the current performers of Y@H were part of the original group that formed in 1982, but they have kept alive the spirit of the early pioneers and continue to push the group into glorious new directions. Find out more about this inspiring group on their myspace and also on their Fox Searchlight site.

At The Drive-In also spawned The Mars Volta, however, they do not recognize El Paso in the least. Everyone here clearly appreciates Jim Ward and Sleepercar.
