West Michigan Beach Receives National Recognition

Those of us who call West Michigan home know that we have some amazing and pristine beaches all along the lakeshore, but it looks like one of them is getting some national attention as well.

Yahoo! Travel has named Grand Haven one of the "Best Secret Beaches On Earth". It ranked second after a beach in Mozambique.  Just the other day, Kim wrote about how the beach has already been pretty busy. I get the feeling that this might make it busier.

Dog Is A Better Jump-Roper Than Most Humans! [Video]

Think about it, when was the last time you jumped rope? I can confidently say that I haven't picked one of them up since I was probably 12-years-old, so I'm pretty out of practice.
