My Open Letter To Fancy Water Park Moms

While on vacation last week, my Mom, sister and I took five kiddos to Venture River Water Park in Eddyville. It was the perfect day... Party-cloudy, mid 80's and just the right amount of people. After the first round of water slides, we took in the lazy river for some much needed down time. It was there in that inner-tube that I saw something puzzling to me... A woman who looked flawless. She looked like she was straight out of a JC Penny's swim catalog. Wait. Why didn't she look like a drowned rat like we all did? Then it hit me... She so fancy. So, to that Mom, here's a letter.

When Chad Met Little Ava: A Horror Story [Video]

Apparently, certain children are terrified of me.  Most kids like me because, let's face it, I am basically a 10-year-old trapped inside the body of a 43-year-old man who looks a little bit like Curious George. However, there are few children out there who react to me like I react to clowns.  Case in point, Ava.  Ava is the daughter of Ashley Sollars, the Digital Managing Editor for WBKR.com.  Ava visited the office the other day and literally hit the deck in the hallway as soon as she saw me.  Not kidding.  Picture it.  I smiled and said, "Hi, Ava!"  Ava hit the floor, assumed a tornado-safe position and cowered against the wall until I was gone.  Naturally, I continued to torment the child and she wasn't having it.  WATCH!

Opening Ceremonies for Special Olympics World Games [Video]

I am a sobbing mess.  The Special Olympics World Games officially get underway this evening in Los Angeles with the Opening Ceremonies and, here in Western Kentucky, we are rooting for Chris Willis of Owensboro!  Chris is representing Team USA in swimming and hopes to bring home gold.  Chris is one of over 7,000 athletes from 177 different countries who are on hand to compete this summer.  And these athletes are the definition of "courage" and "perseverance."  Check out this promotional video for the Games.  I literally sat at my computer and cried.  As you all know, I am a sucker for the Olympics and the Special Olympics World Games make the "thrill of victory" even sweeter and more triumphant.  Let the Games begin!

Ale-8-One Makes List of Top Regional Soft Drinks [Video]

I remember the first time I ever tried an Ale-8-One.  I honestly had never heard of it until I attended college at Kentucky Wesleyan.  One of my fraternity brothers, Brian Beck, LOVED it!  And he always a had a supply of it in his dorm room.  He was basically an Ale 8 hoarder. See, Brian was from Winchester, Kentucky, where Ale-8-One is bottled.  And I remember some friends of mine and I heading up to Winchester to spend the weekend at his house.  There were two highlights that weekend: his mother's homemade pasta sauce (which was so insanely good that I still remember it 25 years later) and our drive-by of Ale-8-One. All I can say about Ale 8 is that it packs quite a punch and it's made Mental Floss' list of The Top Regional Soft Drinks!
