Got ticket?


My neighborhood gas station sells lottery tickets. Someone might have won over $1,000,000,000 on Friday night's "Mega Millions" lottery! What would YOU do with all that money (less 50% in taxes)?

The police and fire truck were on the scene of an accident on Wednesday night. I hope nobody was hurt!

Snow nest


When we have a snow blizzard forecast, it would be smarter to park in one's driveway.  Otherwise, the snow plow will make it difficult to get of snow piles....
