I apologize for sensationalizing this story and being part of the problem. The thing is, no matter if this story is true or not, a little girl is being hurt. Mostly, by her grandmother who is exploiting her. Shame on you, grandmother. Shame on you.
This is the face of a girl that needs more than a grandmother who takes advantage of her condition.
Meet Pig the Unusual Dog. Her mother was feral and Pig and her siblings might have died if Pig’s barking didn’t attract the attention of Alabama native Kim Dillenbeck. [click the link up there for her Facebook page!]
Can I just say, I had a fantastic time away from work last week?
Don’t worry, you guys will always hold a special place in my heart, and a part of me did miss you. BUT… last week was wonderful.
Every year, my husband Dan and I go on a mission trip to Tijuana, Mexico and build homes for those in need through Amor Ministries’ Mexico Family Camp week. This is our 5th year doing this, and it seems to get better and better every year. It truly is a life changing experience.
Anyone named after a character in a movie? The movie “Frozen” not only has made Adele Dazeem a house hold name thanks to John Travolta, but Idina Menzel has done well too and so have the names Elsa and Anna. According to birth records those are two of the hottest names of the year so far and it’s because of the characters in the movie. Which, if you’re parents are going to name you after movie characters, it beats Carrie, Samara (The Ring) or Annie (Wilkes from Misery). “This is our daughter Annie. We named her after Kathey Bates’ character in the movie ‘Misery’. She’s into hobbling.”
What upsets people about you honking your horn at them is they find it embarrassing. That’s why you see them peer back at you from their rearview mirror and throw their hands up. That’s what a survey from Safeco Insurance says. And, most times, it’s just a friendly reminder at a light that it turned green about 40 seconds ago and I was trying to be nice and avoid being that guy but you lose half you life sitting at the light at 25th Street and National Road. 54% of people say they are light tappers on the horn. 38% say they’re medium length beepers and 8% like to rival the length of ” “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” to get their point across. I’m not much of a horn guy, I’m more of a hand gesture person.
Harley fanatics are about to lose their minds. The electric bike that Scarlett Johansson’s stunt-double was recently caught on the set of the next Avengers movie is a real thing. They showed it off in New York and will be making the rounds with it this summer before it goes into full production. It doesn’t look like what we’ve come to know as a Harley. If it wasn’t for the name on the tank you wouldn’t guess it was one. It’s not chromed out and the sound…it doesn’t have one. A Harley that you don’t have to unsuccessfully have to try and scream over the top of?
My love for Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield continues to grow. They were recently at a restaurant in NYC when they spotted paparazzi outside. Instead of reacting negatively to their presence, the couple turned it into an opportunity to promote not for profits close to their hearts.
The notes in the picture below say, “Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do: www.youthmentoring.org, www.autismspeaks.org, (and don’t forget:) www.wwo.org, www.gildasclubnyc.org. Here’s to the stuff that matters. Have a good day!”
