Most Embarrassing moment: Singing in upper Michigan when I just got my wireless microphone. I was testing it out while walking around and singing "Greatest Love Of All" and I JUST got to the part "you can't take away my dig-ni-tyyyyyyyy.....#$^^ $^$% &@#
(I fell down some stairs) lol
What gets on my nerves:
1.People who drive slow in the left lane.
3.People who show up at your house without notice (I love company but that's just rude!)
omg what if Jay Leno drove slow in the left lane to show up at my house, that might very well do me in....

WOW General Hospital is really going all-out for it's 50th anniversary! Not only are Frisco & Felicia back...but MANY former cast members made their way back to "Port Charles" for this big event. Including the famous duo LUKE & LAURA. 30 Million people tuned in to watch the famous couple say "I do" back in the early 80's...I'm betting millions are tuning in once again to find...oh wow - - shocking...they are in trouble once again!! (insert favorite soap shocking news sounder here..in my husband's opinion, it's always 'DON DON DONNNNNNN') (linger that last note for effect please ;)
Anyway what you might NOT know is that there are some deleted scenes from the famous "Nurse's Ball" segments from GH posted on the abc website! To make it easy to get to, here is the link:
While you are there you can also see my favorite rock star of all time perform at "The Nurse's Ball"! In 1981 Rick Springfield signed on to play Dr. Noah Drake at the same time his #1 hit "Jessie's Girl" was climbing the charts. Since they wanted to utilize his talents (at first he declined, wanting to keep the two careers far apart) and it was in the storyline that Noah couldn't sing, they created an alter character, Eli Love many years later. Eli was a rock star so that was perfect. So who would Rick be playing when he came back for the 50th anniversary show? The character Noah Drake came back in the scenes, but taking the stage was RICK SPRINGFIELD!
I had the pleasure of talking with Rick the night before he was filiming the segments. He said they were going to have Noah Drake sing but they already had said Noah couldn't sing. It was just appropriate at this time and at this big of an event that Rick Springfield just sing the song from the year of his appearance on GH...as Rick Springfield. Rick told me this was how it was going to be AND told me nurse Bobbie actually says to him "you know I never realized how much you look like Rick Springfield". He did not tell me what "Noah's" reaction would be and I'm glad he didn't cuz I laughed out loud when he looked are her and said "you gotta be kiddin me" LOL
The above link will take you to the website for deleted scenes, the songs performed by Rick, Jack Wagner & more. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Way to go General Hospital...here's to 50 years and looking forward to 50 more! :)
When the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Hoffman planned their Atlanta, GA wedding, they had no idea Conan O'Brien would be staying at the hotel while doing a special Altanta show that week. However, one of the bride's maids heard Conan was at the same hotel and tweeted him an invitation to crash the wedding reception...and HE DID! He politely went to the groom and congratulated the couple, posed for photos with fans and even showed the groom how to do his famous "string dance" for the reception.
OMG insider had this story and you can see their video by clicking HERE or below. But they pose the question at the end "what would YOU do to get Conan O'Brien to come to your wedding? In my case I think the question should really be "what WOULDN'T I do??" That'd be a much shorter list I think :)
Wow it's been a crazy couple of weeks for me! My CRV kinda died on the south bound I-75 ramp to webster street, (Dayton) leaving me stranded by the construction zone there. As a woman, this is pretty scary. My husband was at work so he was unable to help at that moment. LUCKILY I still have my upgraded membership to AAA and it SAVED. MY. BEHIND!
Within about 15 minutes AAA had a tow truck there to save me and tow my car all the way back to Troy. Because if have the upgraded membership, it didn't cost me a dime! I should mention this is the second time I have been stranded right around the time it was time to decide to keep my upgraded membership or just get the basic. Needless to say, upgrade is STAYING!
ANYWAY - so this brings me to my second local hero...Grismer Auto service center by the Dayton Mall. My husband is good with cars and can work on MOST things. Engine items...not as easily as the professionals. So we chose to have the car serviced by the pros at Grismer, waiting and wondering what kind of value this was maybe not going to be. Well, it WAS! They knocked it out quickly, AND it didn't cost an arm & a leg. I am VERY pleasantly surprised.
And no, neither AAA nor Grismer did these things without my being an actual customer. Neither knows I am giving them kudos either here or in my circle of friends....
I give gratitude to both AAA and Grismer - big time! :)

As some of you know, my husband and his Dad completely rebuilt at 1969 Citabria airplane a few years ago. So I'm around pilots A LOT! How exciting that Disney is coming out with a new movie like "cars" only it's "planes'! To go to the official website and watch the movie trailer, click on the photo below!

This was so cute....Fox news Anchor was proposed to by reading her own proposal on the air! Check out the video
It's so hard to believe that 12 years ago today my world changed forever. My Mom passed away at age 59 of a massive brain bleed. I think about her and miss her every single day. They say it gets easier and it does, but I still miss her just as much as the day we lost her. I'm sure it will always be that way.
Instead of making it a real bummer of a day, I like to honor her memory by being a good person, think of others and do this small tribute to her here on my blog page. She was a beautiful person inside and out (as you're about to see...)
It may seem silly but this next pic is my favorite...If I was scared at night I would go sleep with my Mom to feel safe. I ALWAYS had to sleep with one leg over her to be sure she was still there. She would get so mad at my Dad for taking these pictures...but I thank him because I cherish them! :)
Love & Miss you Mom :(
