Chad Demonstrates The Euro Body Shaper at The Kentucky State Fair

This thing will work out your entire body.  I am not kidding.  I was on this thing for about 30 seconds and I broke into a sweat.  At opening day of the Kentucky State Fair last week, I happened across the Euro Body Shaper and thought I would give it a try.  Honestly, I thought it would make a really funny video for the web and that I would look like a complete fool.  I knew my behind was going to shake like I was working for the Chippendales, but I was okay with it.  What I didn't expect was a ridiculously hard and calorie-burning workout.  WATCH!

What’s the ‘Worst Restaurant Meal’ in America?

Fish is so incredibly healthy, it's unbelievable. But, in these parts, fish is often served--and preferred--fried. Either rolled in corn meal or soaked in a breading and lowered into a vat of hot fat. After all, this is the south.

Tim McGraw Addresses Distracted Driving In Latest VIDEO

I like to think that I don't drive and text. I like to think that I am a safe driver and keep distractions to a minimal. Truth is, I do sometimes send a quick "I'm on my way" or "LOL" response. I've seen the commercials pleading drivers to not text and drive. I was just behind a teenage girl yesterday and I could tell that she had both hands around the steering-wheel, texting away, driving down Frederica. This is not ok. We MUST STOP driving and texting!

Tim McGraw's latest single "The Highway Don't Care" is a beautiful song, I've loved it every since I heard it for the first time. Tim's video for this song acknowledges the problems with texting and driving and is a must see!

PLEASE watch this video and let's all STOP distracted driving!

Couple’s Second Child Dies After Prayer-Only Healing Doesn’t Work (Again)

 

 

Anytime anyone gets sick, especially children, we always ask our friends and family to pray for them. And, I absolutely believe that prayers can bring miracles upon the sick. But, I also believe that the combination of medical care AND prayers is the best bet. These parents do not agree with me. Last week, they lost their SECOND child to illness, after prayer-only healing.

Chris Chaberski has the rest of this story...

In 2009, Herbert and Catherine Schaible lost their 2-year-old son, Kent, to bacterial pneumonia—a condition they refused to let a doctor treat, insisting on using only prayer to heal him. Last week, their second son died. He, too, failed to receive any potentially life-saving medical care.
