Without a doubt one of the most popular soft plastics is a five-inch shrimp imitation rigged on a ¼-ounce jig head. More trout have been caught on jigs than any other lure. Robert Sloan photo

Fishermen along the Texas Gulf Coast have been using soft plastic tails on lead head jigs to catch speckled trout, redfish, flounder and even a variety of offshore fish for decades.

The unique thing about a tail is that they look edible and are soft and feel like the real deal. Because of that fish tend to hold on to them longer.

Jeff Timmons, Justin Jeffre, and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey make up one of the most successful vocal groups of the ‘90s — 98 Degrees. Last year, the multi-platinum artists recorded a compelling full-length Christmas album Let It Snow that featured spot-on harmonies of classics like “Please Come Home For Christmas,” “The First Noel,” “O Little Town Of Bethlehem,” “Silent Night” plus a festive original tune, “Season of Love.”

It’s a shame but each and every year I go and buy all of the beautiful colors of mums available at the local garden center; and each year I am astounded at how short of a time they seem to last.  Just look at these colors!  Last year I decided to do a little research to find out what I was doing wrong. Chrysanthemums (mums) are one of the most popular flowers to use in decorating our homes in the fall.  They have all of the colors we love to see in October, November and December.  And they are considered easy to grow!  You can keep

In Port Arthur stands Grandma’s Country Cooking, a southern eatery that serves up an amalgam of country classics that Southeast Texans love. The eatery cooks southern standards such as chicken fried steak, grilled pork chops and even whole fried catfish. These dishes come with a choice of two sides and can allow customers to customize their plates with various sides, including pinto beans, mustard greens and fried cabbage.

Blah, blah, blah…. is what some gardeners may say if you announce that you have a part of your yard that you are going use to plant impatiens. These “naysayers” might change their minds after seeing these fabulous mass plantings at Villa d’Este done with a single color, single variety, single flower; impatiens.
