As I was driving down the road this week past a long stretch of pines, I noticed what seemed to be a dust storm circulating just on the edge of the pine thicket. This dust storm was unique in that it was yellow and not brown. A car that looked to be recently washed passed through the whirling winds and it immediately transformed the clean black vehicle to a yellow tint. I know the driver had to be happy about that.

I am happy to report that the General Assembly session for 2015 is down to its last two legislative days. We have had a productive session but several important issues remain unresolved. The following are bills passed by the House this week.

Bob and Kim met 56 years ago. Kim thought Bob was trouble, and Bob thought Kim would be hard to get along with. Three days later, Bob told Kim that he was going to marry her, and they have been together ever since. The two were asked by Hallmark to describe their feelings for one another without using the word "love." The two then came together to watch what the other said.

Life in Dick and Liz Diamond’s home followed a pretty straightforward trajectory until recently. Their oldest, a daughter, went to college, then got married.

Popular film site IMDb lists "BDSM" (bondage, domination, sadism and masochism) and perversion as just a few of the many plot keywords for an upcoming movie.
