Thanks to Tom Goeble (from Evansville) who now works at NASA. He was in the air over Washington DC today as the Discovery Space Shuttle was being transported to it's new home at the Smithsonian. I was chatting about the shuttle today on the Afternoon Show and a friend of his mom sent me this picture. SO COOL!!!
The new Three Stooges movie did a respectable showing on its opening weekend at the box office. Good enough for a distant second behind the now steamrolling Hunger Games. The Farrelly brothers loving tribute to Moe, Larry, and Curly got generally mixed reviews - some liked it a lot, others not so much.

Leonard Matlin, a respected critic found the movie very much like a Beatlemania performance
My heart was forever changed by my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Lyons. Her son had been in Vietnam, and after the war he stayed there to care for orphans. We were encouraged to bring in our used clothes and books, and we boxed them up and sent them to these kids. We collected soda pop cans to pay for the shipping, and it changed my heart forever.

Thanks to last weekend’s weather however, we were treated to a picture perfect Easter weekend with brilliant

On Sunday, March 11 the Lord called our beloved Sammy Young D’zolali Rene home to heaven. I had adopted Sammy from an orphanage in Ghana, West Africa two years ago, and he instantly became a part of our extended family and a huge part of our hearts. Sammy’s love and happiness were infectious, his broad smile would light up the room.
We discuseed on the show today the horrible weather and tornadoes in the area this past week. I want to give you information about how you can volunteer and get involved. Also, we discussed Blood Water Mission's 40 Days of Water.
