It seems to have become a tradition - feeding veterans on Veterans Day. Plenty of restaurants do it, Golden Corral and Applebees are a couple that come to mind, and the WIKY Morning Show, too, with our Sixth Annual Vets Breakfast aboard the LST 325.

As my wife Lora and I walked into the Walmart in Newburgh last night, we were greeted by a large, decorated Christmas tree inside the door. Really can't complain that it's too early, it's November after all, but it does force you to start thinking about what to buy as gifts this year.
We talked about it on the WIKY Morning Show. The Consumer Electronics Association’s holiday forecast is officially out:
Earlier this week, we had a Love Court entry about a first-date deal-breaker and it's generated another topic of conversation. First Date Nightmares!
