HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


In Awe - 06/23/14

  I'm just in awe of how generous our Fox 17 viewers are.  Thank you so very much for once again supporting the St. Jude Dream Home campaign.  Thank you for helping raise $1.4 million dollars for children who are fighting for their lives.
  Each year, I'm amazed at the outpouring of support for the Dream Home project.  Your donations of $100 per ticket top that list of course.  Then there's the builder who donates the house.  This year, that generous builder was Signature Homes.  However, the builder couldn't do it without all the vendors and suppliers who donate everything from the bones of the house all the way up to the last light fixture.  We're talking cabinets, faucets, flooring, brick, drywall and more.   Some of these sponsors are Brizo, Brentwood Cabinets, KCS Construction, Sun Splash, Shaw Floors, Darrell Waltrip Automotive, American Signature Furniture, Monkey Bar Garage Storage Systems, Alley Cassety Company, Acme Brick, and Trane just to name a few.
   This project proves year after year that when everybody gives a little, the children win big.
  Here's the complete list of winners. Chris & Donna Lloyd of Murfreesboro won the St. Jude Dream Home. 19 others won some great prizes. They're listed at this link:

Thank you once again for your generous support this year and for continuing to make Nashville the largest Dream Home campaign in the country.  Hugs!

WINTRY WEATHER-SKIING

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The winter storm that hit much of the East made it tough for Thanksgiving travelers. But it's good news to New England ski areas. Dave Meeker of Mount Snow in Vermont says it's a "dream come true." The resort opens for the season today. Noelle Tuttle, spokeswoman for Maine's Sugarloaf, says even the rumor of snow generates a lot of excitement. Area ski resorts say the early storm is getting people to think about skiing for their Christmas vacation.

BREWERS BARE IT

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- These brewers are baring more than their beer. Brawny beer makers are stripping for charity. The 2015 Brew Men Calendar features 11 brewing pros from the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, area. Not too surprisingly, the idea was hatched over some beers. But the brew men don't expose too much. Strategically placed pieces of beer making equipment protect their modesty. Sheboygan Press Media reports the calendars cost 20 bucks each, with the proceeds going to local charities.

SANTA BANK ROBBER

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Say it ain't so Santa! The FBI is looking for Santa Claus in a San Diego County bank robbery. Actually, Ol' Saint Nick isn't the suspect. Authorities are on the hunt for a robber who was wearing sunglasses, a fake beard and a Santa Claus hat. This evil elf was armed with a gun and demanded large bills from a teller at a Chase bank branch. Officials say no one was hurt and the gunman escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

ANIMAL MASSAGE

UNDATED (AP) -- Dog lovers want their best friends rubbed the right way. Shelah Barr is a San Francisco dog massage therapist. She says massage can give the four-legged members of the family "a high quality of life." But don't expect incense burning around the massage table. Barr says she'll often give her patients a bone to chew on. On Barr's Happy Hounds Massage website, an initial house call is listed at $90. Follow-up visits are 75 bucks.
