Two Of My Longtime Listeners Who Met On eHarmony!

Yes, I see all the television commercial about how eHarmony is different than other dating services but I figured it was just a commercial.  I had never met anyone personally who met anyone special on eHarmony so I had my doubts of whether it really works or not.

A couple years ago Brandon & Kelli stopped out to see me at a remote broadcast I was doing at D & W or Meijer.  I remember asking them how they met and they said they met on eHarmony.

11 Month Old Grand Rapids Baby Shot In The Face

I read this headline and thought, "This sounds like some kind of nightmare!"  I was right it is a nightmare but it really happened right here in Grand Rapids.  How do you explain this to a child as she begins to develop and realizes what has happened to her?  What is happening in this world of ours?  Is everything just going to hell?  It sure looks and sounds like it to me.

Catherine Behrendt Talks Toys For Tots With Me…It’s Touching! [audio]

For as long as I lived in Grand Rapids Toys For Tots and Catherine Behrendt are synonymous.   They go together, as Forrest Gump would say, like "peas and carrots." 

There's no better feeling than giving!  There just isn't!  I know we all live such busy lives but sometimes it's just so good to get outside of yourself, and get outside of your own little world especially for a child
