Pocket Knives On Planes?
Posted Friday, March 15, at 2:28 PM
It's kind of strange that a heated debate going on right now would include whether to let people carry knives onto a plane or not? Is it just me or does this sound like the dumbest question I have ever heard in my life? Granted pocket knives have their limitations and are more common in pockets than actual money but they are what they are: Knives...
Are you Serious?
How is it possible that Americans have become so greedy and hungry for the almighty dollar that they forget to behave like decent human beings? A new lawsuit has come forward in the Connecticut shooting. An unidentified client is taking legal action in the demands of $100 million dollars because " the client (child) heard cursing, screaming, and shooting over the intercom when the gunman opened fire and as a consequence the child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined "quoted lawyer Irv Pinsky.. ...
A few thoughts on Connecticut shooting
I'm sure the news of the recent tragedy that occurred today has reached every ear across the United States. It's something this country, every community, and certainly every parent deems their worst nightmare come true. Even those who have no children feel the heartbreaking pain that this senseless mess has left for the poor souls who must face this event as their reality. ...
Magic Mike Weekend!!!
Oh, magic, magic, wonderful magic Mike! I have to say that I am one of the millions (I'm assuming) women who will be at the movie theater this weekend to attend a movie I will tell my family is a documentary on monkeys. With actors like Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey stripping down and doing a little dance for my entertainment, how could I not go spend those dollar bills? This movie will prove to be the closest I'll ever get to adult entertainment and a wonderful excuse for a girls night out. ...
NO MORE REMAKES
Remake, after remake, after remake! Where does it end? It seems as though we can no longer push our imaginations farther than where they have already gone....Or maybe that's just because the same writers are being used. Personally, I feel as though they have squeezed every ounce of juice from "reputable" writers in the "Hollywood biz" and now the only thing left is remakes. ...

In Honor of Kenneth James Weishuhn
Becoming a parent is one of the greatest gifts that anyone can ever experience. As you're looking down at your baby, counting his fingers, stroking his hair, and holding him close you can't help but wonder how is it that you can love someone so much that till that day you never had officially met. ...

Ellen's Dance Dare in Spencer, Iowa 2012
For those of you who do not watch "The Ellen Show", you may not be aware of why some people in town are randomly dancing behind people in stores. I have come to educate and clear up the mass confusion of seeing random dancers. Ellen DeGeneres has issued a "dance dare" to her audience. ...
A questionable Senior picture
Remember Senior Pictures? Believe it or not this was a Senior picture submitted by Sydney Spies of Colorado. For obvious reasons not understood by this wannabe future Playboy pictorial, the editors of the High School decided not to allow this for her senior picture in the yearbook. ...
Wrapping Christmas Cheer
Christmas season is filled with all kinds of wonderful traditions. Making cookies, decorating the tree, driving around to look at the pretty Christmas lights, and visiting Santa. These kinds of things are expected every year and make Christmas fun and cheerful for everyone. However, this year we decided that Christmas needed something extra special. Something never done before for someone special to complete a perfect Christmas season. What better than a Christmas Prank!...
Dear Rick Perry
I thought about writing some cute, Christmas gift exchange blog full of new ideas for families looking for new budget friendly games to play because "Tis the season" right? Wrong! I was abruptly halted by an obscene political advertisement that really chaps my khakis. ...
Northwest Iowa's guide to Mountain Lions
There's a buzz going around of possible Mountain Lions in Northwest Iowa. One picture circulating Facebook, which was taken by a trail camera, shows a large cat attacking a Buck. Everyone seems to be excited yet scared of what this new possibility may mean for us small town Iowans. I've done some research and good news people, there's no need to fear. This Mountain Lion threat does have some positive aspects. Let's review...
Black Friday at Wal-Mart in Spencer Iowa
As a mother of three small children, Black Friday is an excellent opportunity to purchase toys, pajamas, and appliances at affordable low prices. As a faithful black Friday shopper, you check your ads, make a list, call in reinforcements to ensure you cover the entire store, and show up to your destinations hours before sale time. ...
My name is Alyce Townsend. I have lived in Spencer, Iowa for the last 6 and half years. I'm originally a small town girl from Primghar but moved to Spencer because of the big city shopping with small town appeal. Okay, maybe that's not the whole truth. I hate driving in snow. Living in Spencer allows me to never have to leave town in the winter! I'm a 26 year old mother of three children ages 6, 5, and 4. Yes, that's how old they are. Yes, I know. Please stop laughing. I am currently enrolled in Iowa Lakes Community College for my Business Degree with hopes for someday having my own online clothing store. When I'm not doing homework, chasing kids, or cleaning house I love to write. Writing is my release and I currently have been working on screenplays I hope will someday become Oscar worthy motion pictures. I must warn you that I do at times have a twisted sense of humor, so I hope that when reading my blogs of whatever topic I may joke about, you leave with a smile and a whole new perspective!
