This month's photo challenge subject is my favorite. HAPPY!

Published on Thursday, August 20, 2015 by Katherine
My title sounds a bit like something you might pick up on a street corner somewhere, doesn’t it? Fortunately it isn’t about that, but unfortunately it is about something that is just as bad.

WHO was the coolest guy on the beach last weekend?

As I write this, I hope my story will encourage you to take chances. Don’t keep yourself from doing something that may or may not turn out. Push yourself. Take a chance. And always take off your flip flops when running in the rain. Let me explain.
Last week was our family week at our ...

Sharks On Outer Banks Minds

What Have You Seen On Google Maps?
Published on Thursday, June 11, 2015 by Katherine
I recently listened to an audio book called, "Trust Your Eyes" in which a man sees what appears to be a snapshot of a murder on something similar to Google's Street View. I have seen posts on Facebook pointing out things Google has captured, but have never found something on my own.
