Ladies, listen up!

Tonight on the news at 10pm, I'm going to tell you about a well kept secret. In this economy, you CAN have all your favorite your salon services - and even have a little bit of $$$$ left over. The trick to it is, you have to go BACK TO SCHOOL to do it.

Make sure you tune in tonight at 10pm for "Beauty on a Budget" to see what I'm talking about! If you're pinching pennies, you'll be glad you did.

UPDATE: Be a Fan of Joy!

Remember little Anthony Dandrea? His Dad started the McCain Foods "Be a Fan of Joy" Bracelet Campaign - and Anthony (and lots of other kids in the Treasure Valley) sold the blue bracelets to raise money for The Special Olympics World Winter Games - and awareness about people with disabilities. The bracelets were a big hit during the games.
Everyone seemed to have one on!

Over $30,000 was raised!

Yesterday at Hidden Springs Charter School, that money was given to the Special Olympics! Anthony's Dad, Trace Dandrea presented the HUGE check:

After that, Anthony presented me with a plaque, for helping him get the word out to (YOU!) the public about the bracelet campaign. It was a very sweet and emotional moment. I just love this kid, he melts your heart!

Here's another hilarious episode of "News to Me" - doesn't Nick's work get even more brilliant every week??? I really love this one, and so does Larry.
