I hosted a Big Brother day out at Maylath's Farm in Sugarloaf on Saturday. What a fun day! Maylath's is a family run farm nestled in the beautiful Conyngham Valley just 30 minutes from Wilkes-Barre. And the farm has everything you'd want for you & the kids to celebrate Fall:
*Corn Maze *Hay Ride
*Cow Train Ride
*Delicious Farm Fresh Cider
*The BEST Sweet Corn I ever tasted!
This is my cool little, Keeshaun from Pittston.
Can you guess which one of us has never been on a hayride?
The search is on for the Great Pumpkin.
We found it!
Pumpkin slingshot = awesome!!!
Big thanks to Chris Maylath and the rest of the staff at Maylath's Farm for a fun day.
And as always, if you really want to have an impact on a young kid like Keeshaun, volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister today. There is a WAY TOO LONG list of kids waiting to be matched. In fact, 270 kids are still in need of a Big. That Big could be YOU!!!
THANK YOU everyone who came out to the Red Cross Blood Drive I hosted at Pocono Raceway last week! We had record numbers and that's all thanks to YOU, Northeast PA. Plus it helped that they were letting everyone who donated $10 drive their own cars around the Tricky Triangle! WEEEEHOOOOO!!!
Don't forget to grab the Red Cross App, to keep tabs on all the local drives/events. Remember: cool kids give blood. REALLY cool kids give it often.
They said "try to look badass"! So I kinda look like I'm being knighted. Not sure why I thought this was badass...
Harvesting the Lissy Lou red cells. Happy to help :)
Kay, so I'm permanently indebted to the WWE for putting us ringside at the Smackdown event last night! My brother Andy is perhaps the BIGGEST wrestling fan in the universe and we both lost our minds when we saw our great seats! I interviewed the Miz earlier yesterday morning, so I guess this was their way of saying thanks. Ummm..... you're very welcome!!!! :)
If you look closely (on Syfy Channel Friday night) you'll see our faces in the broadcast. Right behind the announcers. I'm the one bottom left, smiling like an idiot. My bro is to my right and my boyfriend on my left. What a GREAT SHOW! And always cool to see hundreds of kids out at these events, so excited and in awe!! Even us grown-up kids. Pretty amazed!
Gee, I wonder which one's Lissa. #superfan
The Miz w/ Rocky, Lissa, & Freddie = VERY nice, cool guy!
"Every year someone comes out of this looking like a donkey!"
--Kevin Costner (Draft Day)
Today was DANCING WITH THE STARS DRAFT DAY on the morning show. We each got to pick 3 dancers. The first one to have all 3 of their dancers eliminated is the big loser and will feel the wrath of the other 2.
Who will be this year's donkey?
Freddie: Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air")
Lissa: Bethany Mota (YouTube Beauty Guru)
Rock: Antonio Sabato Jr. ("General Hospital" hearthrob)
Freddie: Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong, "Up In Smoke")
Lissa: Lolo Jones (Olympic Track & Field Star)
Rock: Janel Parrish (Mona on "Pretty Little Liars")
Freddie: Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly in "Back to the Future")
Lissa: Sadie Robertson (Willie Robertson's 17 yr old daughter on "Duck Dynasty")
Rock: (Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels from "Mean Girls")
Those are the picks. How do you think it will all shake out? Which one of us will be this season's BIG LOSER?
Another comedy voice was silenced today. But now, the more I think of it, Joan Rivers roared so loud, her words will live on forever. She was constantly pushing the envelope and was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Yeah, sometimes she pushed too hard. But that's what made Joan, Joan.
And without Joan Rivers, there would be no Roseanne...no Kathy Griffin...no Chelsea Handler...no Sarah Silverman...or any of the other great female comics that followed in her footsteps and tried roaring just as loud.
Here's a few of my fave lines that Joan leaves with us.
We're still laughing.
1--Why should a woman cook? So her husband can say 'My wife makes a delicious cake' to some hooker?
2--My best birth control now is just to leave the lights on.
3--Half of all marriages end in divorce—and then there are the really unhappy ones.
4--I wish I had a twin so I could know what I look like without plastic surgery.
5--I don't exercise. If God had wanted me to bend over he would have put diamonds on the floor.
6--I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.
7--Looking fifty is great—if you’re sixty.
8--The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider it.
9--I must admit I am nervous about getting Alzheimer’s. Once it hits, I might tell my best joke and never know it.
10--I've learned to have absolutely no regrets about any jokes I've ever done.
