It's the holiday season, and there's a good chance you'll end up in the mall a time or two between now and December 25. I was reminiscing this morning about some of the stores that used to be in the Quincy Mall, but are no longer there. Remember these?
It seems like there are reality shows based on every single type of business imaginable. There are shows about truckers, shows about fashion, shows about pet grooming, and for some reason, lots and lots of shows about pawn shops. A truck stop in Columbia even had its own show for a time. If a reality TV producer decided to make a show based on a business or individual in the Quincy/Hannibal area, what would the show be and who would it be about?

Do you ever rent movies or games from Redbox? If so, prepare to pay a little more. The parent compnay of Redbox, Outerwall, has announced that new prices for DVD, Blu-ray and video game rentals will go into effect in the coming weeks.
There's a good chance you'll catch 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,' 'Frosty the Snowman,' or 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' on TV during the holiday season. Viewers have been watching these specials on television for decades. Many adults make it a holiday tradition to watch these shows, which they remember from their own childhoods, with their own children and grandchildren. Some adults even watch them without children and grandchildren!
Christmas is coming, and it's probably safe to say that most Christmas shoppers have at least one person is are hard to buy gifts for. Some of us have several people in that category. More and more shoppers are giving gift cards instead of actual presents. In fact, 62% of shoppers, according to CardHub, are expected to request at least one gift card during the holidays. What are the most popular gift cards shoppers are buying? A list of the top gift cards for the 2014 holiday season has been released. Here are the Top 10.
This strikes me as very funny. Not only is Black Friday the busiest shopping day of the year, but it also turns out that it is one of the busiest days of the year for plumbers. Who would have thought that plumbing problems would be on the rise the day following the biggest pig-out of the year?
Almost every family has certain members that just don't get along. Of course we all try to make the best of things at the holidays, but it's not always easy. In fact, a new survey from Travelocity found 48% of Americans admitting that they've used an excuse to get away early on Thanksgiving!
