According to USA Today, the new “it” wedding venues are funeral homes. Why? Well, because as we all know, the economy sucks, and funeral homes can offer a more readily available, less expensive, yet equally beautiful setting for the budget wedding. According to a recent survey, about 10 percent of funeral homes currently offer wedding services. “A lot of (traditional wedding facilities) are shutting down because of the economy, while we (funeral homes) aren’t going anywhere,” said the spokesman for the National Funeral Directors Association. “In our community, two banquet halls closed because of the economy.” Can’t stop death, huh? “A banquet hall is a banquet hall, and a chapel is a chapel.

And if you watch any home videos, I will no doubt be singing either “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow” or “It’s A Hard Knock Life.” That’s because I was beyond obsessed with the 1982 movie, “Annie,” in which a precocious orphan is adopted by the mega-rich Daddy Warbucks. (Side note: I recently read that Aileen Quinn, who played Annie, is now a theater professor. You go, girl. No word on whether Sandy the dog is still barking.)
So, I’m a tad bit concerned that Will Smith is looking to remake the classic movie. Keep reading »
So long as love rides shotgun in your life, nothing can ever truly be that bad. It is the singular prize that trumps all others, the reward that sweetens every success. Truly, it is the hot fudge on the ice cream scoops of personal achievement. Now, excuse me while I puke a little in my mouth.
