Gifts for Kids They say that the holidays are for kids, and there’s some truth in that. Children are easily caught up in the excitement and magic of the season: delicious smells, treasured decorations that transform a home or a neighborhood into a dwelling place of light and beauty, mysterious boxes and closets that are strictly off limits, and their own first adventures into the art of gift giving are just a few of things that set the season apart. In choosing gifts for kids, the hope is that the gift will still be in “rotation” long after the holidays are gone.  So how do you choose such a gift? Read More Posted on Nov 21, 2018 by Whole Earth

Casual Boots – Versatile, Stylish and Fun Here in Texas, we can wear sandals well into November. Our toes love the fresh air, but we admit to being very excited when it finally turns cold enough to pull our favorite boots out of the closet.

We’re talking about boots that can go to work, out on the town with friends, and add a stylish touch to whatever we’re wearing. Read More Posted on Nov 8, 2018 by Whole Earth

Bobby Daniel - Whole Earth Ambassador 2018 June was a wild month. I was scheduled to be playing every Saturday night in Las Vegas at Harrah’s Casino with the band Fastball. Being someone who doesn't drink or gamble, I knew I needed to come up with a plan to spend as much time out in the surrounding mountains as I could. Every week we’d fly in on Friday night and out on Sunday morning. I learned, week one, to pick up a rental car for myself as soon as we landed. Read More Posted on Nov 4, 2018 by Whole Earth
