strange theme parks
Sept. 16, 2014 7:22 am

There are a lot of theme parks in the world.  It seems there's something for everyone.  But who would expect a park in an old nuclear power plant?  Or one in an old Russian prison?  Check out these odd parks


Sept. 15, 2014 5:02 am

A pre-school class in New Mexico had cultivated a garden of pumpkins.  They had 4 pumpkins in their garden which were about to turn orange.  Over the weekend, someone stole their pumpkins and wrecked their vines.  The students aren't mad at the thieves but simply want to know why they didn't ask.  They would have gladly given them the pumpkins.  Since the story came out, the school has received donations of pumpkins.  And a Boy Scout Troop wants to help with a pumpkin drive.  stolen pumpkins

honoring a boy scout
Sept. 14, 2014 7:49 am

Noah Cornuet was on his way to becoming an Eagle Scout.  It's the highest rank that a boy scout can achieve.  Noah died after football practice when he was only 16 from an undiagnosed heart problem.  So he never finished his Eagle Scout project.  His troop has finished for him and is now hoping that he will be awarded the rank posthumously.  Eagle Scout

custom dog houses
Sept. 13, 2014 7:44 am

Dogs can live in style with retro trailer style dog houses.  These are just adorable.  They're made from environmentally friendly materials.  dog houses

fences are there for a reason
Sept. 12, 2014 5:24 am

NASCAR has installed fences around all of it's tracks to keep fans safe from flying debris.  Who would've thought that a fan would need to be kept in the fan area by that very same fence?  A fan climbed to the top of the fence on Saturday night at Richmond and sat calmly watching the race beneath him.  He was finally coaxed down by authorities but not before he slowed the race.  I think it's probably good that authorities got to him before angry fans did.  That guy is way beyond crazy!  fan climbs fence

haunted house
Sept. 11, 2014 5:19 am

A family in Utah rented a house through American Homes 4 Rent.  They weren't told anything about the home's background which was owned by the Powells.  Susan disappeared and has never been found.  Josh, her husband, killed their two sons and himself and the brother, Michael also killed himself.  Both Josh and Michael were prime suspects in Susan's disappearance.  But soon after the rental family moved in, strange things started happening.  The garage door opened and closed on it's own.  The family's 1-year-old was found talking to someone on an empty swing saying, "Go away, leave me alone!"  And the mom hears someone crying when she's taking a shower.  These things have forced the family to flee the home.  haunted  

deer on Golden Gate Bridge
Sept. 10, 2014 5:47 am

Two deer took a leisurely stroll on the Golden Gate Bridge and brought traffic to a crawl.  The deer managed to leave before police could arrive.  But plenty of pictures were posted to social media of the spectacle.  deer

volcano diving
Sept. 9, 2014 5:12 am

Would you do it if you had the chance?  Two explorers did and they lived to tell the tale.  They even went in with cameras to document their adventure.  One of them called it a "window into hell."

Elvis Explosion
Sept. 8, 2014 7:00 am

This past weekend was the Elvis Explosion at the LaCrosse Center.  I'm not a huge Elvis fan but I do love watching a good performer.  ETA Brad Boice has become a friend  because one of my best friends, Cheri, is a huge Elvis fan and Brad's fan club president.  I got to see him perform on the big stage--wow!!  He is so talented.  The other headliners were amazing as well.  The sound, lights, and stage were top-notch.  It was definitely a professionally run show.  Kudos to Ronny Craig for that!  The backing band was phenomenal.  I learned that the contestants don't get to practice with the band--they just walk on stage and go for it.  That's a very difficult thing to do.  So the fact that some of them were not very good is not surprising to me.  Some of the contestants were awesome though.  I also discovered that there is an Elvis product out there for everyone.  Including a roll of toilet paper with Elvis' likeness on it.  Who would even use that?  There were clothing items, knick knacks, household items, and books available for purchase.  Elvis' bodyguard was there and he's got a book out that was written by his then girlfriend.  Living in "The Elvis World"  book info  

One of the contestants from Kentucky even drove an old collector car to the show and they had it available for pictures with fans.  

I even got to see Rod Stewart and Gene Simmons of KISS.  

It is definitely a night that I will not soon forget.  I do, however, think I've had my fill of Elvis for quite some time lol.  You can check out Ronny Craig's facebook page for more info on The LaCrosse Elvis Explosion.

sock monster
Sept. 8, 2014 5:07 am

Do you lose a sock in the washer or dryer?  Is it the sock monster or is it something more sinister?  One family discovered their "sock monster" was their dog.  Yep, the family pet was consuming their socks.  When they took the sick dog to the vet, they had no clue that 43 1/2 socks would be found in his stomach.  The dog is home after surgery and still alive--no other word on his condition though.  eating socks

idiot karaoke host
Sept. 7, 2014 11:01 am

I despise karaoke hosts who are too stupid to know how to run a fair rotation. I met one Friday night. I signed up for one song--just one song--that's all I wanted to do. I did that at the beginning of the night expecting to sing my one song and then enjoy all of the other singers. The place was very busy and filled with Elvis impersonators so I understand why they were called up to sing. But two songs in a row for each one? That was a bit over the top considering all of the people who wanted to sing. Then this "host" (and I use that term loosely because he sucked at it), put all of his friends up before others. His friends who didn't even walk into the place until last minute. After 3 hours, I voiced my displeasure with him and I walked out.  I should've left earlier but I thought I would give the guy a chance.  And hey, I warned him I was a B***H!  He should've listened lol.  I'm glad that he is not from around this area because I will never go to another one of his shows. Plus, I will never step foot in that bar again because they allowed it. They can sell their $2.50 glass of pop to someone else.

song becoming a tv show
Sept. 5, 2014 7:19 am

Carrie Underwood has become the most successful American Idol contestant and now one of her songs is going to become a 6-hour television event.  Two Black Cadillacs is about two women who find out that the man they are with is cheating on them.  Two women scorned turns into a murder.  New Fox show

NASCAR race excitement
Sept. 2, 2014 8:07 am

There's always some sort of excitement going on at a NASCAR race.  But Sunday it was something that is very rarely seen.  At first it was announced that a cat had run across the track.  It was even caught on camera from Kevin Harvick's onboard camera.  He narrowly misses the animal as it runs in front of him.  It was later discovered that the "cat" was actually a squirrel.  The critter escaped unharmed and the race went on.  Such is the unpredictable nature of a NASCAR race.  squirrel video

American Ninja Warrior
Sept. 2, 2014 8:02 am

American Ninja Warrior is a show on NBC about an extremely challenging obstacle course.  Only the best are able to make it through.  A woman had never done it until Kacy Catanzaro came along.  She was relatively unknown even though she competed in the male dominated sport for two years.  But since she was the first female to ever make it into and complete the finals course, her name is now very well known.  ANW

Hello Kitty
Aug. 29, 2014 5:35 am

She's so cute but she's not a cat.  This revelation was made on August 27.  Professor Christine R. Yano sent a script for an exhibition to Sanrio.  They corrected her and said, "Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature."        

           Gasp!  I always thought she was a cat and so does Josh Groban among others.  At least now we know the truth lol.  Hello Kitty

Monkey and kitten relationship
Aug. 28, 2014 5:03 am

At Monkey Forest Park in the Ubud region of Bali, a monkey was photographed cradling a kitten.  A long-tailed macaque monkey looks to be best friends with the ginger kitten.  Other monkeys seem to be fine with the feline hanging around as well.  inter-species relationship

How much would you pay for a grill?
Aug. 27, 2014 7:46 am

How about $17,695.  Is any grill worth that?  It has all the perks that any grill master could want but at that price, I'd rather cook on my stove.  That much money would buy a really nice car.  So unless you've got almost $18,000 to just toss at a grill, my guess is that you won't be buying it either.  expensive grill

Aug. 27, 2014 5:28 am

Without regard to his own safety, USC cornerback Josh Shaw jumped from a second story balcony to save his nephew.  Josh saw that his nephew was having difficulty in a pool, and because the nephew can't swim, Josh knew he had to do something.  So he jumped; landing on the concrete.  He sprained both ankles and still managed to get himself to the pool and rescue the boy.  He even says that he would do it again if he saw any child in trouble.  True hero

Large parking sign
Aug. 26, 2014 7:20 am

A parking sign in Culver City near Los Angeles takes up 15 feet of vertical space and is extremely confusing.  The mayor was notified and promised to fix the problem right away.  Even though half the signs were removed, there are still a lot of restrictions that require plenty of signs.  ridiculous parking sign

food at lambeau
Aug. 24, 2014 6:47 am

Lambeau Field has a donut ice cream sandwich, Bratchos (brats, cheese, and chips), and newly added Horse Collar.  This treat is a 22 inch kielbasa covered in cheese and fried sauerkraut.

It will sell for $20 and is meant for two people.  Minus the sauerkraut--then it sounds good to me. new food at lambeau
