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

5 Ways To Help Your Kids Transition Back To School After A Long Grand Rapids Summer Break

I always enjoy watching Dr. Matthew Clark on Take Five & Company.  He's a local psychologist with The Clark Institute right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  His practice is primarily with young people and families.  I invited him on today's show to talk about the stresses for the kids going back to school.  Routines change, sleeping times will change, video computer time will change once they have to start doing homework and hitting the books.  So how can you make the transition easy for you and the kids?

I Agree With Most Of The Comments, Animal Abuse To The Max.[video]

This was a painful video for me to watch.  What do you think?  I am guessing at some point this cat will become angry with these kids and bite one of them and then who's fault is that?  Animals, of any kind, are not meant to be dressed up and played with like inanimate dolls.
