Mother’s Day is a day specifically designed to celebrate our mothers. It’s a day to let them know how much we care and appreciate everything they do for us. Truthfully, everyday should be a day where we cherish our moms, grandmas, sisters, and important women in our lives. Every mother deserves acknowledgement for all of the hard work, love, and support she has put into being our mom. But, if you aren’t quite sure how to show your mom appreciate, start by planning a day dedicated exactly for her.
The most exciting two minutes in sports takes place this Saturday, May 5th, as the 145th Annual Kentucky Derby kicks off the Triple Crown. The derby will be followed by the Preakness Stakes on Saturday May 18th, and the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8th.
The Kentucky Derby, which takes place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, is always a very big deal. The race, a Stake I race, draws incredible and unmatched betting crowds. The horses that participate in the race are trained specifically for intense racing, and for this short 1.25-mile track.
The race is always on the first Saturday of May, the winning horse and jockey are always draped with a blanket of roses, and crowds still pour in wearing their fancy clothes and unique hats, and of course, sipping on Mint Juleps.
Whether you are a horse-racing fan or just in for a day of fun, here are 5 must-haves to throw a stellar Derby Party:
Every family has their own unique TV tradition. For my family, we would record all of our shows we wanted to watch (like American Idol back in the mid 2000’s) and we would wait until all of our homework was finished and dinner was cleaned up before starting the show. After we were ready for bed, we would spend time on the couch, snuggled up in blankets, catching up on our favorite shows. My dad would always be so excited that we could fast forward through all of the commercials to get to the good parts. That tradition still holds true today. Every Sunday, my family gets together for dinner and afterwards, we pick the best movie to watch On Demand. Watching TV with your family is one of the best feelings, especially when you get into the groove of a comfortable routine.
It’s important to get the most out of your TV Package so your family can enjoy watching TV together, whether it be at home or on-the-go. Check out this list of awesome features that will help you maximize your family TV time.
Earth day has been happening since April 22, 1970 and the tradition continues to this day. Earth Day's mission is to diversify, educate, and activate the environmental movement world wide. Cincinnati Bell takes an active role in improving our earth not just on Earth Day but everyday through the fiber that is essential to our business, Cincinnati Bell Energy, and our Cincinnati Bell Electronic Recycling Event happening April 19th, 20th, and 22nd (more details below).
For some of us, Cincinnati is our home town and others loved it so much, they had to stay. Whatever the case may be, Cincinnatians have so much support for the place we call home. Everyone wants to support their local small business especially when they are as good as Servatti Pastry Shop, Buzzed Bull Creamery and Graeter’s Ice Cream. Local restaurants, breweries, and Cincinnati-based businesses want to show us the love right back with reward programs. That’s right! Discounts, rewards, sweet deals, and more. And who doesn’t love to save money?

IT’S MARCH. IT’S MADNESS. It’s time for March Madness. Are you ready? We definitely are. That is why we have put together an official guide to March Madness including printable brackets, where to find games, important dates and channel guide.
March Madness is a time to watch the 68-team basketball bonanza unfold. It is arguably the most exciting playoffs because fans are able to control their brackets and the atmosphere is unlike anything else. It's also entertaining to make your brackets using a mix of logic and randomness to try to predict the 68-team bracket all the way through. Mastering the perfect college basketball bracket is not easy but if you do manage to come close, some March Madness bracket websites offer cash prizes. Even if it is not possible, it still is extremely fun!
