It's nights like this that make me wish I had a better camera!
Check out the full moon over Westfield.

Electronic Rubber Neckin'

For those of you who like to do a little part time rubber neckin' - I've got just the tool for you! The Indianapolis Star has a new fancy-dancy feature.
It shows LIVE 911 calls as they are happening. You can't hear the call, but you can see where they are in Marion county and what the call is for.

It's interesting - especially late at night. If you've got nothing better to do, and feel like checkin out the action in Indianapolis, go here:

I just read that Tammy Faye died Friday. Poor thing, I saw her on Larry King this week. She looked pretty close to the final stages.
When she was on the Surreal Life, I gained a new found respect for her. She was loving to everyone on that show.
I'm sure I could stand to work on being more like her in that way.

Spend an evening with DOG the Bounty Hunter at The Centre in Evansville on Monday, August 20 at 7:30pm.

Considered the greatest bounty hunter in the world, Duane 'Dog' Chapman has made more than 6,000 captures in his 27-year career. This highly intense, charismatic ex-con and born-again Christian is the king of the comebacks. This modern-day hero once served time in a Texas prison. 'I am what rehabilitation stands for,' Dog says.

Now on the right side of the law, Dog is tireless in his efforts to bring in the bad guys and encourage them to turn their lives around. Over the years, the list of fugitives Dog claims to have either helped catch or single-handedly brought to justice reads like a who's who of America's most wanted, including the high-profile Max Factor heir, Andrew Luster. Dog credits much of his success to his knack for getting the most out of his informants. 'Seventy percent of all my captures happen because some good ol' American has turned them in by giving me information,' he says.

I'm sure you all remember me talking about little Ivan Stevens of Camden, New Jersey. He was the little boy featured in ABC's documentary titled, "Waiting in the World to Change". See my post from January:

Mom and I pooled our money together and sent a donation to Ivan's minister. That was back in January - at that time, I recieved a personal call from the minister, Rev. David King - Sr. Pastor of Community Baptist Church in Camden. We talked for quite a while and he told me that Ivan was getting the house he longed for so much. (Thank you Jesus for the wonderful people that are still in this world)

Today, I got a picture of Ivan in the mail from Rev. King. I was so surprised! Ivan said in the documentary that he wanted to be Superman and fly in the sky to find his mom and brother a house with nice curtains. Here's the picture I got of Ivan (with his mommy and Rev. King) - notice - he's got on a Superman coat. Too cute!
Rev. King now has a building he wants to refurbish to provide a safe place for the people of Camden to come for warm food, safety, worship, job searching help, day care, after school care .... the list goes on and on. As you can see, this building needs LOTS of work. Over $600,000.00 worth!

I'm planning to send another donation. It's not much but if everyone does just a little bit, we CAN change the world.

If your heart tells you to do the same, please make your checks payable to :

The other night, Richie was watching Future Cars on the Science Channel. He loves shows about flying cars and cars of the future. I watched with him and found the future car of my dreams!

It's Nido!

This little car is built for safety! There are honeycomb/accordian-like panels that protect the people in the car. They crush panel by panel absorbing most of the impact. Whoda Thunk? These little genius honeycomb things help prevent brain injuries, whiplash and other serious injuries that usually go along with car accidents. Oh, but it doesn't stop there! Nido is also built to minimize injuries to pedestrians too - should you have a problem running people down on a regular basis, that is!

I think it's a cute little car - but we all know I love the "high ride" feature of Rich's truck. Don't know if I will ever buy another "low-rider", but if I do, Nido is on the top of my list.

Check out some of their other prototype cars:

Do you think they will offer it in pink?
