I may be behind in my things to do; but the work to support and erase hunger never stops. Since the inception in 2012 of the Outnumber Hunger program 6,825,375 meals have been secured, not too far from the goal of up to ten million that has been set. Can they meet and exceed such a large undertaking? I believe they can. In April of... Continue reading

After all the "sneak peeks" and hype build up to Toby Keith's newest video, "Hope on the Rocks" it finally arrived. I will admit that when I heard the title of this song I was intrigued and thought, "Wow maybe he is finally getting away from the drinking songs of late." Well the title was misleading because that is just the direction he went, but... Continue reading
