It's a cute little house on Bennoch Road. There have been several fundraisers, some still going on. There's a "spaghetti dinner" coming up,...If you'd like to help in a small way, the Family Dollar by Bell's IGA is taking contributions.

That reality show has been one that I've watched a lot. Just some formula show that's works for me. Of course I'm tough and never cry. I really enjoyed this outcome even better. Makes me want to get back home now, even more.

Thanks for the lift Labamba.
