    We are viewing FPU on our own at home. Week 3 has taken us 2 weeks. It simply just took us longer than expected to fill out all those papers. We did not want to continue until they were complete. This week was my first trip on a reduced grocery budget. My husband put an application on my...

    One of my chickens died today. It had been 'huddled' up in a corner of the hen house since yesterday and when I went to check up it today, it was dead. I think it was old age since it had no symptoms of any of the diseases on backyardchicken.com and I believe that it was an older chicken when...

    We are thankful this morning to have experienced no damage, no loss of loved ones, and to have power restored at our home. So many in Alabama were not as fortunate yesterday. The death toll stands at 128, but there are many still missing. I was amazed at this woman's nerve as she shot this...

    A Eugene Police officer was shot and killed Friday. It was the first police death since 1934. What is even sadder is that I know his family. He and his wife had been married for 8 years they have a five year old daughter together and he was dad to her 11 year old daughter. The family and...

    I am really disturbed to hear that an innocent 18 y o young man was killed last night. He showed up at a party that apparently had gotten way too big- some in attendance stated that they would beat up the next guy that showed up. They beat him to death. What is wrong with this world????

It was for our nephew and his new wife. They had been married in Las Vegas on Dec. 31st at midnight...

She was fine 10 days ago, started getting a little sick, then over the weekend stopped eating/drinking and by yesterday she wouldn't even get up...
