Ring in the New Year with a $343 million Mega Millions jackpot

The most I've ever won on those tickets is $5...How about you? Then you got these gals in Arkansas...






I guess you CAN put a price on friendship.


A woman named Mandy Vanhouten works as a waitress in Stuttgart, Arkansas.  Her best friend, Leslie Underwood, also works there.


Well . . . last week, their boss gave them each five lottery scratchers for Christmas.  According to Leslie, he said that whatever they won they'd split as their Christmas bonus.


And when Mandy scratched off one of her tickets, she won the grand prize:  $300,000.  She and Leslie were THRILLED and they agreed they'd cash it in after New Year's.


At least . . . Leslie agreed to that plan.  Mandy had other ideas, and she went to cash in the ticket herself.  Now she's not showing up at work and not returning Leslie's calls.


Leslie says she's planning on taking legal action if Mandy doesn't give her half of the money, but it could be tough . . . since Mandy is the only one who signed the back of the ticket and there's really no proof of their agreement to split it.

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
