If you and a friend can finish this 15 pound pizza in less that 1 hour the store owner will pay you $2500!!  It's a place called 8 Buck Pizza in California.  It weighs 15 pounds and is 30 inches in diameter.  Would you try it???

“Whatever your dream is, I promise you it is possible, it happened to me.” Gavin DeGraw left us with that great quote after he took a break to talk to the audience. Never have I heard a more genuine story from someone so famous. The performance was amazing, but that was a given, especially since I had seen him before, it was that he took the time to share his stories that made it exceptional. DeGraw is witty and charming, calling Louisville an island in Kentucky and pretending someone in the front row was giving him a foot massage. He performed classics like “Chariot”, “I Don’t Want to Be” and “Follow Through” and some of his newer songs including “Best I Ever Had” and “Make a Move.” With that said it was his take on Adele’s “Rumor Has It” that sent the concert and myself over the moon. Needless to say, I loved the concert and even found a new favorite artist in his opening act, Rozzi Crane, who just happens to be Adam Levine’s “protégé.” Five stars from intern “The Rachel”

I really hate stories like this!!  This 9 year old little girl she be praised NOT victimized!!  I'm glad the school changed their mind though.  Thoughts???

Nine-year-old Kamryn Renfro recently shaved her head in support of her friend, who is battling cancer. Caprock Academy, in Grand Junction, Colorado, refused to allow her to attend class because they say her new look violates their dress code. "Caprock Academy does have a detailed dress code policy, which was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school's students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted.''

** UPDATE **

The school reversed their decision.

Do you know the difference between Rude, Mean, or Bullying. This is an important conversation that needs to happen because these terms, especially Bullying, are misused too often in society. We aren't saying it doesn't exist just that it is too often ill defined. 

Signe Whitson degines each as


Rude = Inadvertently saying or doing something that hurts someone else.

Mean = Purposefully saying or doing something to hurt someone once (or maybe twice).

Bullying = Intentionally aggressive behavior, repeated over time, that involves an imbalance of power.

In Reading, Massachusetts, a four-year-old girl named Kaelyn Kerr got stuck in an elevator, along with her mom and her baby brother.  Firefighters came, and the only way to get them out was to go up a ladder and over a wall.  Kaelyn was nervous, so the 
firefighters sang "Let It Go" from "Frozen", to help calm her down.  It worked, and everyone got out safely.  (Here's a clip of the firefighters singing the song during their interview, after it was all over.  There's no audio from the rescue itself.)

Here is her call  

Vanessa called in this morning with a problem. She got an invite to a Baby Shower from a coworker (not really a friend more of an aquintance) and she didn't go. The next day she came into work and found a card with this poem on it.

We’re sorry you missed the shower!
We looked high and low
So sad you didn’t show.
We got lots of stuff
but it wasn’t enough.
My baby has needs
They grow like weeds.
We saw nothing from you
So here’s what should do
Go to these stores
Or if they’re a bore
We also take cash!

The *** Family is registered at these stores and checks can be mailed to this address


To make things worse, she asked someone she worked with who had attended about it and she got a card with this poem.
 
This card we are sending
Is to say thanks for attending
Your gift was so nice
We looked at it twice
But here’s the twist
It’s not on our list.
Please see the stores below
Or you could also increase our cash flow!

Our question was, Should she confront her or just let it go?
