Twenty Pound Carp Runs for Office

Recently a 20-pound carp ran for city council in Ann Arbor Michigan, but was unsuccessful in clinching the win. It seems that this large fishy fellow was seeking to win by write in votes. He first gained notoriety when preservation workers at a local pond caught him vandalizing vegetation. He was quickly relocated to Huron River just a short distance away. After his move, the carp announced his intention to swim for office via his twitter account @TwentyPoundCarp.

My Three Favorite New Shows

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when TV networks reveal their new shows. Most of my favorite shows are on cable, not on network TV. However, there are a few great new shows on network TV this season. I love comedies and have been a huge “Law and Order” and “CSI” fan for years. It should come as no surprise that my favorite new shows are a comedy and two drama, law and mystery shows. Give one or all of these a try. You might find something you just can’t wait a week to watch again.

I should have been, because way back then the difference between the number of applicants and the number of tags given out was less than five. He was sure I would draw it, but sadly I didn’t.

A Coffee Lover’s Dream Come True

Like many Americans, I am a coffee lover. I’m a regular at a local coffee shop, so much so that I don’t even have to order. The baristas see me walk through the door and they start making my drink. I always have my drink in my hand before I’ve even paid for it.

Hunter Gets More Than He Bargained for and Has Close Encounter with a Black Bear

My husband is an avid hunter, so he has had a few close encounters with wildlife in his day. However, he has never had an encounter quite as close as this hunter had.

Not Your Ordinary DUI

This seems like something that would happen in Montana. I’m sure it probably has. Recently, a Colorado man lost his driver’s license so he decided to ride his horse to his brother’s wedding in Utah, 600 miles away.
