Bride + Groom + tornado

Your wedding day…and you want everything to be absolutely perfect.  The ceremony, the food, the cake, the decorations…it all has to be memorable.

Guessing this wasn’t what the young couple had in mind.  The newlyweds were being photographed walking hand in hand down a back country road, when Mother Nature decided a photobomb would be appropriate.  Said photographer Colleen Niska “Pretty sure this will happen only once in my lifetime”.

I’d say she’s probably right.

THIS is Going to be the Song of Summer 2014!

The song features a bunch of well-known Spanish words, including “Burrito, Gasolina, Dale!”The comedian told BuzzFeed “Salsa Tequila” was all about making a parody and the “ultimate summer song.”
Well, it worked, because we can’t get it our of our heads!!!

article-0-1F5906A800000578-351_636x382.jpg.300x0_q85

A Texas Tech cheerleader has been receiving death threats after photos of her with animals that she’s hunted and killed were posted on Facebook.19-year-old Kendall Jones posted pictures from a recent trip to Africa where she posed with dead lions, leopards and springboks.By the time she was 14, she had already bagged six of the most difficult and deadliest animals to hunt on foot — buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, rhino, hippo and crocodile. Animal rights activists are up in arms and want her crucified, but Kendall says many of them are missing the point.She claims to be a conservationist who wants to educate more people via a reality hunting series for the Sportsman Channel that’s in the works.

 Many people have been offended by the photos, and have reported them to Facebook, who as of yesterday, took several of the “most offensive” photos down.  Read more here!

 

Happy 20th birthday, “Forrest Gump”

On July 5th, 1994…the Tom Hanks classic “Forrest Gump” was released to theaters across the country.  And in no time at all, phrases like “Run, Forrest Run”; “Life is like a box of chocolates”‘; and “Lieutenant Dan!” became part of our vocabularies.

Ever wonder how many of those plaid shirts Tom Hanks wore?  Or how many times Forrest says the line “Jenny”?  Well then, here you go…”Forrest Gump…by the numbers”

According to his official website…we’re about to find out something huge.  If you visit his website, you’ll see thunder and lightning flashing, along with a cryptic message that says “the wait is over…7/7″.  Could this be the world tour we’ve been waiting for since Garth officially ended his retirement last year?

In other Garth news, two of his five “warm up” shows in Dublin late this month have been scrapped due to permit issues…and the other three may also get cancelled.

This Day In History – July 3

1863

The Civil War battle at Gettysburg ended.

The battle came to a close after Confederate General George Pickett’s troops suffered severe losses to General George Meade and the Union Army.

Ready for a quick history lesson about a key note of Gettysburg? General Meade had actually taken command only six days previously when General Joseph Hooker was relieved of his command. The South had almost won the war, BUT, thanks to General Hooker’s preoccupation with ladies of the evening in Washington – ladies who came know as “Hooker’s Division” – which was simply shortened to…you guessed it…“Hookers”

1890

Idaho became the 43rd state to join the United States!

While it literally means Gem Of The Mountains, I’d like to think the guy was an acquaintance of General Hooker and named it after himself…

(Come on kid! What is this, eighth-grade?!)

1965

Roy Rogers’ beloved horse, Trigger, died at the age of 33! Roy and Trigger made 188 movies together!

Roy couldn’t stand the thought of life without Trigger, so he had the horse stuffed and put on display at his Double-R-Bar Ranch in Apple Valley, California!

(It eventually made it’s way to a new museum in Branson, Mo, but it closed in 2012. After the museum closed, Trigger was sold at auction for $266,500 to a private buyer. End of an era!)

and then lastly…

This is crazy! 

1988

In Snohomish, Washington, Rocky Kenoyer set a world record for making 403 parachute jumps in 24 hours! Dropping from an elevation of 1,500 feet, he made one jump every three minutes and 40 seconds – for 24 hours straight! Goodness! He did it with the help of 50 parachute packers, seven airplanes and 10 pilots.

 

I wanna join for one or two of those!!!
