Thank you so much for your outpouring of support at Saturday's Zaxby's Back to School Food Donation Drive...All I can say is WOW! and "Thank You"!  It was a great event, and wonderful to meet so many wonderful, generous people!  One gentleman showed up with a truckload of just the kind of foods the kids need to go back to school!  Here are some pictures and a video from the event..

Wow. All I can say is wow. Was wondering if we’d reach the goal at this food donation drive for the Backpack Kidz, and this happened..

 Koepka takes home the win in the 100th PGA Championship..Tiger Woods makes an incredible comeback!


After yesterday’s incredible final round in which—just as he did three weeks ago—Tiger Woods made another Sunday charge at a major championship shooting a six-under par. It’s safe to say Tiger is back.

With spectators chanting his name, Woods made a spirited run at a 15th major championship but despite shooting his best score ever on a Sunday in a major, 6-under par to finish at 14-under on the tourney he couldn't make up a 4-stroke deficit on the only thing hotter than the weather at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis—Brooks Koepka.

Koepka shot a 4-under 66 to finish at 16-under par for the tourney, beating Tiger—who finished in second—by two strokes to win the PGA Championship.

That is Koepka’s second major championship this year and third overall.

Koepka now joins an elite group that includes Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen as the only people to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

Oh, and one other person, who was the last to do it in 2000.

Woods himself.


  • Woods posted his second straight top-10 in a major after tying for sixth last month at The Open. Woods' 64 was his lowest score in the final round of a major ever.
  • What might have been: Woods made birdies at the 12th and 13th holes, had a 14-footer for par lip out at the 14th that knocked him 2 strokes back and then fired an approach to just a foot for a birdie at the 15th. He parred No. 16, couldn't birdie the par-5 17th because of a wayward tee shot and rolled in a 19-footer for birdie on No. 18 to put some pressure on Koepka.

Crows Trained To Pick Up Litter At Park

August 13, 2018

The birds get rewarded with food for bringing a cigarette butt or trash.


A French park has found a new way to maintain the grounds: free labor from crows. Rooks, a member of the crow family considered to be “particularly intelligent” are being trained to pick up cigarette butts and trash and will start working at the historical theme park in France.

The six rooks are encouraged to spruce up the park with the use of a small box that delivers a nugget of bird food every time the bird drops a small piece of garbage.

“The goal is not just to clear up, because the visitors are generally careful to keep things clean,” explains Nicholas de Villiers, with the park, but also to show that “nature itself can teach us to take care of the environment.”
