Another Senseless Murder

Betty’s Pies Will Never Be The Same

Happy Fourth of July

Every year we are reminded of the many blessings we have as Americans.  This year especially with all turmoil in the world we must be even more thankful for the freedom we have to speak our mind and enjoy life to the fullest. When I  think of enjoying life I am reminded of my beautiful […]
