Sharon’s Never Done This. Have You?

This was something I never did as a kid. I never had the opportunity because we didn't own a tent.

Until now.

Did you ever sleep outside in a tent in your yard? I wish I had. Luckily, I can live through Anderson, Bradley and Jayden.

Sharon Went To Carrabassett Valley For Fireworks

I've never been to Carrabassett Valley before. I've been through it to get to Sugarloaf but never had the opportunity to stop and visit for a while.

I'm sure glad I did!

A Dairy farmer in Pennsylvania is saving $200,000 a year by recycling cow manure to power his farm. He owns 600 cows so the manure piles up quickly and he says it’s a fairly easy process to convert the manure to run his four generators that run the farm.

Rare Bird Sighting Goes From Joy to Sorrow as Bird Flies into Turbine

A rare sighting of a white-throated needletail bird on the Isle of Harris, one of Scotland’s Western Isles, had bird watchers coming from miles away to get a glimpse. There hadn’t been a sighting of the rare bird since 1991 so for a dedicated bird watcher to travel over 17 hours to see the bird wasn’t unusual. What was unusual was what happened to the bird.

Have You Seen ‘A River Runs Through It’? Sharon JUST Watched It

It came out the year I graduated: 1992. You would have thought I had seen it by now.

When I asked Chad if he had seen it, his eyes got really big and said "It's only in my top 5 of all time! You've NEVER seen it?"

Nope. At least not until last night.

Have You Seen A Luna Moth This Year Yet?

Chad's band, Cold Blue Steel had just finished playing at the Waterford Fairgrounds Saturday night and we were all talking about things when a moth started flying around us. I had mentioned the only Luna Moth I had seen this year was one someone had run over in a gas station parking lot.

I thought that would, unfortunately, be the only one I see this year.

But I was wrong!

Why Do People Watch ‘Duck Dynasty’?

They have dangerous jobs and you really started to care for these people and their health. Look at the outpouring of love for Captain Phil from the Cornelia Marie. That story touched me so much I cried when he passed away.

But 'Duck Dynasty'??

What is the fascination?
