Lil’Wranglers was formed in 1999 by Sharon Toups when she noticed that her two children had the potential to begin learning country western dancing. Sharon was part of the Aggie Wranglers organization while in college at Texas A&M. She gathered together a few children and started Lil’Wranglers, modeled after the Texas A&M Aggie Wranglers. Aggie Wranglers is a country and western jitterbug dance group at A&M that performs at various events in the community and internationally. To date, Lil’Wranglers have performed at more than 350 events.
Lil’Wranglers and Aggie Wranglers are part of a deep rooted tradition that is rich in history. It is something that families can share, and parents like Sharon can pass down to their children.
This organization enables children and youth to learn, perform and compete across the state. The individuals involved cultivate a love for dance and spread the spirit of Aggieland wherever they go. The program blesses those who participate and those who have the privilege of watching the performances.
Lil’Wranglers could not exist without the support and donations of local businesses and individuals, specifically those listed below.

Nowadays, lush green front yards in Aggieland are few and far between, but when I do, I remember when I was a kid and really enjoyed the lush grass. Despite the changing times, healthy lawns and gardens will never go out of style. Maintaining a healthy lawn is a key part of taking care of your home. Here are some tips on how to keep your grass and flower beds in tip top shape.
Mow high and mow less. When mowing your yard, keep in mind that the shorter you mow your lawn, the harder it will be to keep it looking green. Try cutting your grass at a height of about three to three and a half inches. If you cut your grass too short, it is likely to suffer from a weak, root system and will not be healthy enough to obtain the water and nutrients it needs from the soil.
Leave the clippings in your yard. The myth that these will create thatch is not true. Grass blades consist mainly of water but also contain many nutrients. Eventually, you will be able to use less Read the rest of this entry »

Some decisions are easy ones. Do I support Texas A&M or TU? Do I live in Bryan College Station or Lubbock? Do I want chocolate ice cream or double chocolate ice cream? Others are not quite as straightforward. Which house is best for your family? Choosing a home to buy might require seeing several options and considering a list of criteria. Below are factors that should be considered when considering purchasing a home.
Where is the house located? It is often said that this is the most valuable thing to consider when buying a home. Almost any other part of the home can be changed or remodeled to fit your preferences, but you cannot pick up and move away from your neighbors. When looking around town at your options, consider the proximity of your home to your work, the feel of the neighborhood that the house is a part of, noise from traffic, pets or neighbors and how close the home is to parks, shopping strips, schools and public transportation.
Consider the features of the house as well. If you are looking at a home in the hills, does this house have the view you want? Are there multiple flights of stairs you will have to climb daily? Does the house offer you the privacy from neighbors? Does the yard feel safe and would you be comfortable letting your children play in it outside and using it for whatever you will need – gardening, sitting, pets, or other uses? Is the elevation of the driveway safe? Are the stairs too steep? These are all things that need to be considered.
Not only do you want to feel like you have privacy from your neighbors, but you will want to check out the area Read the rest of this entry »

Homeownership comes with many benefits whether it is a home in Bryan or College Station or far away from Aggieland, and the least of which is that the home is yours! You are allowed to get a dog, or nine (unless you have deed restrictions…)! You can plant a garden, paint walls, change the décor, renovate, and do just about anything you would like with your new home. There are a number of other benefits. The community in which your home is located makes you feel more connected. You may join a neighborhood club or make friends with your neighbors at block parties. This gives you a sense of pride. The mortgage payments you will be making will slowly increase the amount of equity you have in your home. When you are renting a home, rent usually slowly increases over time. In a home, the normal, fixed rate mortgage locks in the amount of money you pay monthly for a set 30 years. This assures you stability. Your credit score should go up if you pay your mortgage on time. The stability that comes with owning a home allows you a sense of safety and consistency. You can stay in your home as long as you would like. There are currently tax write-offs that come with owning a home. The value of your home should also go up. Over the past 50 years, the value of homes has risen an average of five to six percent. Also, there may be tax free gain when you sell your home, meaning you pay no tax on the appreciation because you bought it.
These are just the tip of the iceberg of benefits that Read the rest of this entry »
