No Kool-Aid Man at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?

No Kool-Aid Man at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? (NTV News)

We have a couple questions this week, starting with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: Will we be seeing the Kool-Aid Man?

Macy's has a nifty website featuring details on all balloons, floats and performers.

This year we'll see: Pillsbury Doughboy, Angry Birds, Power Rangers and more - but sadly - no Kool-Aid Man.

From what I could gather, the Kool-Aid Man balloon was retired after the 2015 parade.

Next question: When a flag is lowered is it half-staff or half-mast?

For the most part, half-staff is on land and half-mast is for on the sea. However, outside North America, half-mast is more commonly used for land and sea.

For the remainder of the week- the president has orderd all flags at half-staff in honor of the lives lost in Sunday's shooting at a Texas church. We are asking for pictures from where you live of flags lowered. Please share them on the Seth and Colleen Facebook page.

Last question: An old friend sent me a photo and asked if I could show it as a special tribute to our nation's veterans - and the answer is you bet!
