Halloween Light Show is Back!

Look what’s back! That cool house in Leesburg Virginia that puts on a spectacular Halloween light show every year. Last year the video went viral with it’s spooky take on “What Does the Fox Say.” What made this year’s play list? Well click below or venture out to 1826 Woods Edge Drive Leesburg VA 20176 to see it for yourself. Remember you must tune your radio into 98.1FM to hear it from your car. It runs on a loop from 7pm-9pm until Halloween Eve!

Moving on!

This is how we do it on the weekends! Sending off our star producer Charlitta with chicken & donuts. She’s headed to the network to work with Jake Tapper at CNN. We’re gonna miss her!

Hi from the big Apple!

Back in NYC filling in for Early TODAY and MSNBC’s First Look. It’s great reuniting with some of the best in the business. I mean seriously– where do you find people this happy so early in the morning? They must love what they do.#blessed

 

School apps that work

Parents and students take note! During this stressful time of year know that there is help available at your fingertips. I connected with some local moms to find out the best apps that have helped with everything from signing up kids for extra activities to getting an online tutor.

Make sure you tune in for my report Monday September 29th on News4 at 4pm.

#growNATS!

The Nationals have clinched the NL East title and to show solidarity with the team… our guys at #NBC4 are growing out their playoff beards. What? You expect me to sit back, relax and let them have all the fun. No way! Go #NATS!

Chuck this weekend let it go:


Richard has some catching up to.

Handly and Kammerer happy to grow:

Back to Pre-School!

Finally the day has come that I can respond to my daughter YES! Every day she  wakes up and asks “Am I going to school?” She loves it so much and now she has graduated to the 3s program. It’s so fun seeing how excited she is!

Etsy bans Redskins name but you can still get…

In the Etsy blog the marketplace that has more than 22 million members banned the use of the Redskins name and logo for items to be sold. Team colors are still ok.I did  a search and still was able to find quite a few things for sale with the name. Etsy says they’re emailing users to tell them to take down the items.

The company wrote: “In no uncertain terms, Native American groups have consistently advocated and litigated that the term “redskin(s)” is disparaging and damaging to Native Americans. Therefore, it will no longer be permitted in our marketplace.”

A marketplace that sold more than a billion dollars in just the last year. Many of those purchases made the way I like to do it— through mobile.

As you can imagine this story is getting quite the reaction online. One of my twitter followers asks:
@OhMyGOFF Did they also ban “Indians”, “Chiefs”, “Blackhawks”, “Braves” & “The Chop”? (Not that you can ‘chop’ in a piece of cheap jewelry) — Edward Shipley (@ems74) September 10, 2014

Edward.. doesn’t it appear they have. No ban on “Indians” products or perhaps other things that may offend or raise a brow. Stuff from like the KKK. You can even get a 10 pack of Ted Bundy Stickers and a knitted childbirth doll you will thank me later for not posting.

 

On Instagram @jmshultzie points out… It’s a business decision either way.
That is true and Etsy has every right to make that call. Good or bad one? Only buyers and sellers can tell.

My kiddos in Gamecock gear I just got from Etsy.
