Well, we are knee deep into the holiday season. Happy Holidays! So my question to you is, how's that gift shopping thing going?

For me, it began over the weekend, and to be honest, it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. Many people are really excited to get out of the house and head into the many great businesses around the Triple Cities and beyond to get into the holiday spirit and shop.

I am not necessarily one of those people. But over the weekend, I found it to be somewhat fun. First, we had snow, which helps to get a person into the holiday mood, and I didn't experience any long lines or irritable shoppers. Can't blame anyone if they are, at this time of year.

If you are still looking for a gift for someone, and that person loves rock music, may I give you suggestion? Tickets to Mountain Jam 2017. It's at Hunter Mountain , N.Y. June 16th through the 18th, and it is going to be awesome.

Tom Petty and the HeHeartbreakerslong with the Steve Miller Band will be headlining. Peter Frampton will also take the stage at the festival as will dozens of other really great bands and artists. I think it's a great gift for that music person in your life.
