Sugarland Sued Over Stage Collapse In Indianapolis

I don't know if I agree with this.  It wasn't Sugarland's fault, they were also victims in this situation.  Can you imagine the emotions they are and will carry with them from the stage collapsing on fans that were waiting to see them at a fair in Indianapolis?  Still, the storm was an act of God and it wasn't Jennifer and Kristian decision alone, WHEN to call the show.   Read what E! Online has to say about the unfortunate situation and tell me if you think they should be included in the law suit.

You’re Invited To Dolly the Llama’s Memorial Event At Lake Superior Zoo

When I got the text from a friend that Dolly had passed, three came to mind, Dolly Parton, THE Dolly Llama and Dolly the llama at the Lake Superior Zoo.  The news of any of them passing would be sad, but I was shocked to hear it was the relatively young llama at the Lake Superior Zoo.  I had spent some time with her during Boo at the Zoo this year and she was her usually sassy self.  She kept trying to nose her way into our cauldron of candy!!

The Lake Superior Zoo will be holding a Memorial for Dolly, to celebrate her life, and you're invited.  Here's the details, she will be missed!!!!

Prominent Global-Warming Skeptic Becomes Believer After 2-Year Study

I doubt this will change many people's opinion, but it is interesting because it involves processing actual data.  When it comes to movies, music, politics and things of that nature I generally don't get too emotional about people's opinion as everyone has a right to their own.

When it comes to opinions based on some factual data, then I do tend to take interest in what people more educated than myself are lead to believe.  Global warning has been a hot topic recently so this study caught my eye, especially when I saw who conducted it.

Deer Antler Causes Cathy Kates’ Flat Tire

It's 8p.  We're driving to Duluth from the Taste of Home Cooking Show at Black Bear Casino Resort.  Homie, my husband is behind me in the truck, because we drove separate.  Suddenly, I see the lights of  the SUV a short distance in front of me swerve uncontrollably and pull off to the side.  I slow down in time to see a huge deer down in the passing lane writhing in pain (poor honey).  I knew I wouldn't have time to call Homie on the cell, so I put my flashers on and hit the brakes so he'd know something was going on and to slow down.  Just as he was on the side of the deer, a mini-van blows past him in the passing lane and nails the deer at 75mph!
