I See Something Sad

Sometimes, it breaks open the heart to care 111 People

    Omg It's Christmas In October Here!

    Seriously! It started snowing last night and we have 3-4 inches of snow. All over Maine and some of the other New England states. Sucks. Rediculous. Snow in Halloween. (My younger half sister-Calli.) http://www.wgme.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/wgme_vid_9770.shtml
