I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Betty White is Not Dead — She Dyes
I don't know if you could call this a celebrity death hoax or a gut check from the grammar police. As a self-professed grammar snob, it's been rather amusing to see the internet react to the news that Betty White dyes.

The Spare Tire Donut, Butt Cover, Lipstick Stencil + More of the Dumbest Inventions Ever
