Is The ‘I Love Balls’ Campaign for Testicular Cancer Awareness Too Much?

I have always been a huge supporter of the 'Race for the Cure' to promote breast cancer awareness and help find a cure. The t-shirts that the runners and walkers wear to support their loved ones and women around the world always bring a smile to my face. Shirts like, 'I LOVE BOOBIES' are everywhere. So, I'm not sure why this campaign shocked me but, it did.

Sometimes Lions Will Be Lions at the Circus, Which is Bad News for the Trainers

Organizations like PETA have have been protesting the use of wild animals in the circus for a long time. The animals play a major role in any circus, in particular, the elephants and the big cats.

Jon and Leslie Talk to Jake Owen About Headlining the ‘Big O Music Fest’, His Recent Injury, Doing What He Loves and Parenthood

Last week, Jon and I interviewed Jake Owen and as always it was a blast!! Jake is one of the most positive, humble and down to earth country artists in the business today. He is gets serious when he talks about being thankful for everything he has and laughs at himself as he admits, at times, he is an idiot. LOL Whether talking about his wife getting on to him, his beautiful baby girl waking him up in the morning or his AWESOME fans, we could see Jake's smile even through the phone.

Being Left Handed is Something to be Proud of – I Am, But It Took Me Awhile to Get There

Yesterday, August 13th, was International Left-Handers Day, which may not seem like a big deal, especially for right-handers, but for left-handers, it's a day to be thankful for who we are. Being left-handed certainly has its challenges because we live in a predominately right-handed world. Spiral notebooks and a computer mouse were not designed with left-handers in mind.

How Old Are Your Ears?

It's a running joke with my family that I am QUICKLY loosing my hearing. I guess it's because I spend a lot of time, doing my job, in headphones. Then when I'm working out, I use earphones. I figured out that I spend a considerable amount of time, each day, damaging my ears. YOU do it to. Our kids will loose their hearing in their twenties from using headphones and earphones so much. They are also going to go blind from reading very small lettered text messages!! But, for right now, let's focus on our hearing.

Dad Fools Daughter Into Eating Vegetables

Only ONE of my kids liked to eat veggies. My daughter is that rare breed of kid that passed on cupcakes and candy for her kindergarten birthday party and instead opted for carrots, ranch dressing and cheese crackers. Remarkably, she actually had a lot of friends. LOL

My son's were, and still are, a different story. I tried everything to get them to eat a vegetable. But, I forgot about trying THIS!

Bubble Wrap Bike is the Bomb

Bubble wrap is probably one of the most underrated items in society. We just moved and used a ton of bubble wrap for dishes and breakables, but bubble wrap is great for practical jokes, which in turn, can be a big stress reliever.
