“Lone Survivor” Movie Trailer [VIDEO]

Chad and I had the honor of hearing Marcus Luttrell speak during one of our trips to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. No, Marcus isn't a child with cancer, nor does he have one. Marcus, a US Navy SEAL, is the only survivor of Operation Red Wing. Neither of us will ever forget being on the edge of our seats, listening to him tell the horrifying story of that day and the days following.

Lone Survivor is an upcoming movie about Operation Red Wing. I encourage you to watch this trailer and to learn more about Marcus. He is a true American hero and I will always be grateful for Marcus and other men and women of our great military who protect us by sacrificing themselves.

I Missed the Death of a Personal Icon

You've seen those signs, haven't you? The ones that say, "If you can read this, thank a teacher." Well, I do. I also thank the late author Donald J. Sobol. He and all of my grade school teachers made quite a team.

Joan Rivers Hates Everyone . . . Including Country Stars

Joan Rivers new book, I Hate Everyone  . . .

Who Should Play Christian Grey? [POLL]

If you've listened to my show at all this week, you've heard me mention my new obsession 50 Shades Of Grey. It's a three-book series written by EL James. It's taking over the county in the minds of just about every female I know. And, it's for good reason! ;)

With all of the success from the books, a movie is in the works. (I can seriously hardly contain my excitement!) The main male character, Christian Grey is a hot spot to be taken. So, Roxianne and I have been doing some pretty tough research and have found you four options on who should play Mr. Grey.

Take our poll and let us know what you think!

Jac and Dave Book Clubs: 50 Shades of Grey and the Hunger Games

On occasion, Jaclyn and I have discussed the fact that neither of us are heavy readers. In fact, outside of her monthly magazine fixes--Cosmopolitan and Parenting--and her nightly reading of Llama Llama Mad at Mama with her daughter, Carsyn, Jaclyn doesn't "hit the books" very much, if at all. Same here.

Dave Spencer Tearing Through ‘The Hunger Games’ Before Seeing Movie

I enjoy a good book. But I don't read a lot. Doesn't make sense, does it? Well, I have to clear out my head completely to get into a book. No distractions of any kind. And if the book grabs me immediately, then that problem is taken care of. Great example: Stephen King's "The Stand." It's the best book ever. Good example: Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games." I'm halfway through it.
