Ever Fall In Love With A Fictional Husband?

Funny!  Every Christmas, me and my sister get all snug by the fireplace and pop Pride and Prejudice into the DVD player ... and savor the storyline over two nights!

We both LOVE Mr. Darcy and giggle everytime it gets to the part when he sexily (not on purpose, of course, thus the hotness of the scene!) runs into Elizabeth Bennet outside his estate.  Wow, what a scene, and if you weren't in love with his charater by then -- well, I don't know how to help you!!

My heart aches for anyone who suffers -- for any reason.

Sometimes suffering is for our own good, but this survivor is a testament to the will to live so he can tell us about it...

Fennville Heads To Regionals Tonight!

For me, and hopefully for you, it has been really neat to see the Fennville community, as well as surrounding communities come together and lift up the Leonard family after Wes unexpectedly died after throwing the winning shot to advance his team to the play-offs on March 3rd.

It's far reaching how many people I have since met who also either knew Wes or his family -- and how much they're all respected and loved.  This is good for America to see as ESPN follows this small town team rally to also advance to regional action tonight at Vicksburg High School

West Michigan Chills With Cosby At Laughfest!

Two hours seemed like a prelude or a warm-up for veteran Bill Cosby who filled DeVos Performance Hall for two shows yesterday.

Although I wasn't able to attend the show -- I can honestly say that reading quotes from his dialogue is just as funny as hearing him deliver each punchline!  I can so picture him in my mind after years of following the Cosby Show and wishing that I could somehow join the ficitional family myself!!  You too??

Do you remember when the space shuttle Discovery launched into space for the first time in 1984?

It seems like the world was more into the magnificence of what it takes to get one of these puppies into outer space and after traveling over 148 million miles during 39 missions ... Nasa has decided to call it quits.

Smelly Homes Make Or Break Your Kids’ Grades!

How anyone came up with the idea to link how your house smells to the kind of grades you got in school is beyond me, but I got a kick out of some of the results...
