Travel should take you places... it took me to Hawai'i last year. Beautiful!
Favorite American Idol, past or present: Officially, it's Diana until another one (read: Kelly Clarkson) will be in a picture with me.
Look what someone dropped in a Salvation Army red kettle yesterday, at the Wal-Mart in Daphne!!!
It's a gold Krugerrand! Katie Emer, with the Salvation Army in Mobile, points out that similar coins have been dropped in red kettles across the country in the past few days....and we've heard of this happening over the years....but it's the FIRST time in Coastal Alabama.
And Katie says the timing couldn't be better, with the shorter bell ringing season between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. They're hoping it will add momentum to donations, as residents rise to the challenge issued by the anonymous donor....to match the donation.
In case you're wondering, the coin is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $1200 to $1400.

Robert Burton likes his Christmas lights! Judging by this display, we can assume he loves the Auburn Tigers too. In honor of the team's Iron Bowl win, he's put together a Christmas light show synchronized to the AU Fight Song.
Check out his website here. The display is in Fayetteville, Georgia -- just outside Atlanta.
What a magical night, with USA Children's & Women's Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House of Mobile, and USA Mitchell Cancer Institute!!
Lights of Love is a special event, not only for families gathered outside the hospital, but for the children watching from inside as well. And the special guests lighting the tree arrive in style....
Inside, the Holcomb family....and a couple of special guests-- Santa Claus & Ronald McDonald!
All smiles as they arrive ....Emerson, Cooper and Brayson, the Holcomb triplets....stars of the evening, at the age of 2!
Mission accomplished--- the tree is lit!
Time for cocoa & cookies....and a little reindeer fun, with Mixen the Lite Mix Reindeer. Mixen meets Starla Chapman (2011's tree lighter) and some of her family.

The cookie monster stars in a parody of "Lord of the Rings?" Yes, really! It's pretty good... the precious!
2 year old Ashtyn Gardner of Mobile met Sunny, the Obamas' new dog, Wednesday at the White House. An over-eager Sunny knocked the toddler down....but First Lady Michelle Obama quickly took control of the situation, helping the child up and hugging her. And soon Sunny was doing what he apparently was trying to do in the first place.... lick Ashtyn's face. Who could blame him? She's cute!

This really happened? Losing is never fun, especially to a rival. But I think most of us know better than to take it out on our servers.
