Laugh Until You Cry

Laugh Until You Cry ~ Amy Lignor I was a kid. I had the best family imaginable, yet I felt out of place. The only thing I could really do well was make up jokes when others weren’t feeling all that good. Even today, as my Mom struggles with retirement and getting older, she’ll cry at times because she feels like a burden (which, by the way, she is not). But even at those times, I can tell a joke, or change my voice in such a way that makes the … [Read More its Good for You...]

A Summer of Prodigal Sons ~ Amy Lignor There hasn’t been this much ‘buzz’ about prodigal sons returning home since…well, the actual prodigal son returned home. But within the ridiculous web of intrigue that LeBron James has brought to the sports arena – a man who is now heading back to a new ‘welcoming’ fan base who once thought that LeBron’s face on urinal mats was a home décor item that could not be lived without – comes a prodigal son of the … [Read More its Good for You...]

A Glass Stadium for the NFL Causes Environmental Issues

A Glass Stadium for the NFL Causes Environmental Issues  ~ Samantha Lewis The NFL is all about hitting, ensnaring the QB and building up the number of sacks on your resume. Football is a contact sport, and most certainly would be boring if Manning, and others, simply wore a flag at their waists and nobody ever went down on the turf.
