Deer Goes Crazy After Crashing Into a Bus

I have had my fair share of run ins with deer. Living in the country, it's just a way of life. You must, during the early morning hours and evening/night hours, constantly be on alert and have your eyes scanning the sides of the road.

Restore Your Faith in Humanity, Watch This Video

SO many bad things have happened over the last decade. Between movie theatre shootings, school shootings and bombings, I have a heavy heart. I want so badly to see the good in people, but it's hard to do. I find myself looking at people and judging them on the way they look. After moving to the other side of the street of walking a little faster, I hate myself. People ARE good! And this video helped to remind me of just that. It will remind you too. :-)

Make No Mistake – Whether Foreign or Domestic, the Boston Marathon Attack Was Terrorism

I am sitting here trying to make sense of the events of the last 24 hours and just like 9/11, I am struggling to understand, as are most of us. One thing that struck me watching the network newscasts last night, was the fact that almost all of them said the White House and Boston city officials were stopping short of calling this a terrorist act, which changed by early evening.

Scotty McCreery Helps Fight Hunger With New PSA for ‘Peanut Butter & Jam Slam’ Food Drive Program

When I met Scotty McCreery, I was surprised to find him to be as genuine as he was on American Idol. I guess I expected him to be a little more full of himself considering all the attention he was getting at the time. But after meeting his family, I knew the reason he was able to stay so grounded.
