    This has to be one of the coldest winters for an extended period of time in the Texas panhandle this year.  Usually we have the extreme cold snaps and get to 15 degrees or lower  with the winds making the wind chills much colder for a few days.  Then we could be back into the […]

  • Might you have mites?

    Mites?  On my eyes?  You got to be kidding me?!  Aren’t those little bugs like chiggers or lice?  Well…….yes.   They are technically a parasite that we all have on our skin.   I know, it sounds gross.  Perfect with Halloween coming up don’t you think?  Scary, little monsters eating our dead skin cells and […]

  • Cotton mouth anyone?

    Sometimes we get thirsty from time to time, especially in the dry Texas Panhandle.  But do you always have a mouth so dry you need to keep a mint or gum in your mouth?  People sometimes call a mouth so dry like that “Cotton mouth.”  We probably all have been that thirsty from time to […]
