Texas singer-songwriter Aaron Watson’s newest album, Vaquero, is a fitting title for the hard-working cowboy. Living caught up with him just prior to the album’s release last month to ask about Vaquero, the follow-up to his indie success story, 2015’s The Underdog. Living Magazine: Aaron, you’ve cut your own path in the country music industry. While being an independent artist and making your own records, you have also garnered huge success. Aaron Watson: Yes!

These tests aren’t just for courtrooms and police dramas anymore. Originally introduced in 1985, a mere 30-some years later DNA testing technology is so ubiquitous that footballs, sideline pylons, and even the coin used for the opening coin toss in the Super Bowl are marked with specific kinds of synthetic, invisible DNA to prevent counterfeiting—with a 1-in-33-trillion chance of getting the genetic sequence of the thing correct.

That’s because spring and summer are the ideal times, according to Barbara Lane, a real estate guru from San Antonio. “More people tend to move around the end of the school year so you have the most choices when it comes to homes on the market,” she explains.

For those with stained or yellowed teeth, one option may be over-the-counter teeth whitening products—toothpastes, mouthwash, strips, and trays.
