Things To Do This Weekend – Enjoy High School Theatre

All over the Tri-State, students spend 6 to 10 weeks preparing for ONE weekend. They spend those weeks learning blocking, lines, character development, sometimes music; building sets, gathering props, making costumes, setting light cues, utilizing sound equipment and selling tickets. Through these tasks they are learning skills that are invaluable, skills that many of them will not learn in the class room. Countless hours are put in to meet a deadline. Unlike sports teams that have an entire season to try and perfect their game, students of theatre have one weekend, one chance to give you a winning performance.

Bonnie Franklin and ‘One Day at a Time’ Showed Me the Difficult Life of a Single Mom With Humor and Love

Sadly, on Friday, actress Bonnie Franklin passed away after her battle with pancreatic cancer - she was 69. Bonnie is probably best remembered for playing 'Ann Romano' on the CBS sitcom 'One Day at a Time.' The show was a huge part of my childhood. My mom, like Ann, had red hair, I wanted to look just like Valerie Bertinelli and the story took place in Indiana. It was also my first glimpse of a woman who was divorced. (I know...crazy, but true) Little did I know, that someday, I would be just like her.

Carrie Underwood and Leslie Both Had ‘Trouble’ With Beef

I am a member of Sam's Club. Quenton and I are addicted to the enormous packages of toilet paper and paper towels. Don't laugh, I know you are too! (LOL) Another thing I really like is the every other month magazine they send to their members called, 'Healthy Living Made Simple.' On the cover this month, Carrie Underwood. Inside, Carrie revealed her reason for not eating beef and I immediately thought of a story from my childhood.

The Evolution of Mom Dancing

Ever since I can remember, we danced at my house. My mom would step touch, step touch to the radio while keeping the beat by making a sound with her lips a tongue and snap her fingers. I know now why she put me in dance lessons at the age of five - she wanted me to have better mom dance moves. But after becoming a mom myself, I realize that all moms have the SAME moves. ;-)

A Tribute to St Jude and it’s Founder Danny Thomas [VIDEO]

Today is our final day of the 2013 3rd Annual St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Radiothon. Many on our staff have traveled to St. Jude to see and experience the love, caring and magic that is St. Jude.

The hospital, located in Memphis TN is the result of Danny Thomas making a promise. As a struggling young actor, Danny prayed to the Patron Saint of Lost Causes - St. Jude. He promised that if the saint would take care of him and his family, he would build a shrine in his honor. The shrine would be a hospital for needy children, where they would be cared for regardless of race, religion or ability to pay, where no suffering child would EVER be turned away. Now, Danny's children continue to keep that promise.

Kid Denies Eating Sprinkles Even Though They Are All Over His Face

What is it about little kids that makes them deny any involvement in something they know they shouldn't be doing even though the evidence is all over their face...literally. We have all lied to our parents when we were kids. They knew we were lying and we knew they knew, yet we stuck to our guns and denied everything.
