Donald Lawson is $337 million dollars richer, thanks to being the sole Powerball ticket holder with the winning numbers — 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and Powerball 21 — which earned him a $224.6 million lump sum payout before taxes. After paying a $65.9 million federal and state tax bill, Lawson walked away with $158.7 million in the bank, according to lottery officials. Lawson’s jackpot is the third largest in the history of the Powerball game and the seventh all-time biggest lottery payout in U.S. history! A self-described Arkansas “hillbilly,” Lawson said he “retired” from his job as a railroad engineer hours after learning he won the jackpot from an $8 ticket bought at the Sunoco station on Main Street in Lapeer, Michigan. Lawson, a native of Fort Smith, Arkansas, said he has lived in Lapeer for 10 years, but now plans to travel the world, pay for his daughters’ college educations and let his close relatives live comfortably in retirement.
Labor Day Weekend and as we wind up another summer, I wanted to post this Gene Simmons Military Tribute video from a few years ago, as a Thank You to our servicemen & women who allow all of us in America celebrate & enjoy living in the greatest country the world has ever known! My friend Gene, with the help of a military marching band, leads this singing tribute to all 4 branches of the service, Army-Navy-Air Force-and Marines! As a former talent on the worldwide network of Armed Forces Radio/Television Service for 25 years, I couldn’t help but get goosebumps watching this video of the most loyal and appreciative audience I’ve ever known. My 6000 show run ended in 1996 due to Defense Department budget cuts, but to this day, I still get dozens of calls, emails, and facebook posts each month from former or still current military members who listened around the world! Take a few minutes this weekend & see if you don’t feel of surge of good old American patriotism & pride in your veins watching this video!!!

Demon, a 3 & 1/2 week old Siberian Husky puppy, trying to practice his Husky Howl! He was on the floor for a total of 4 minutes explains his owner and, sure he was nervous about the floor, and yes looking around for his mother who was right outside the door, but Siberians are also very vocal & begin to socialize around this age.
A retired Navy SEAL who was present at the killing of Osama bin Laden has written a book about the raid. The book, titled “No Easy Day” and written by one of the men in the room when the al-Qaida leader was killed, was written under the pseudonym Mark Owen. For the interview, CBS disguised the Navy SEAL’s voice. A makeup person also concealed the author’s looks so effectively before the “60 Minutes” interview that CBS News Anchor Scott Pelley, who had met him three times before, did not recognize him upon entering the room. Owen speaks about the mission publicly for the first time Sunday night, September 9th!
Got into a discussion the other day with a friend about the hidden arrow in the famous Fed-Ex logo that a lot of people never see until you point it out to them! Decided to offer another review of the secret hidden messages in real corporate logos everyday, and probably don’t realize it! Just look a little closer:)

Southern California’s Imperial County was shaken up with over 300 earthquakes starting this past Sunday morning at 8:30 and continuing into Monday morning ranging from 2.5 to 4.1 magnitudes! The USGS website shows the largest quake registered a 5.5 on the Richter Scale, with one family in Brawley, CA capturing a 5.4 quake on video. The family turned on the camera just in time that shows the shaker, and the force of the quake!
David Banks got quite the surprise on his 50th birthday. David works with explosives, so his co-workers thought an exploding birthday cake would be an appropriate way to celebrate. Thankfully, the explosion and his reaction were caught on video.
William C. Rhoden, columnist for The New York Times, talks to Anthony Mason and Rebecca Jarvis about what happens to Lance Armstrong — his career, his foundation and his legacy — now that the U.S. anti-doping agency wiped out his seven Tour de France titles and banned him for life from cycling.
Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, has died at the age of 82. Randall Pinkston takes a look back at the remarkable life and legacy of the space pioneer.
Here’s a vintage clip from the game show “I’ve Got A Secret” where Astronaut Neil Armstrong’s parents, Stephen Koenig Armstrong and Viola Louise Engel Armstrong have a secret that their son was just made an astronaut on this day at 3 PM, September 17, 1962. Armstrong was one of nine new men so chosen. Host Garry Moore asks an incredible question, “Now, how would you feel, Mrs. Armstrong, if it turned out – of course nobody knows – but if it turns out that your son is the first man to land on the moon? What, how do, how would you feel?” He asks this nearly seven years before it actually happens on July 20 1969! Neil’s mom’s reply is priceless, “Well, guess I’d just say god bless him and I wish him the best of all good luck.” Neil Armstrong did not see this recording until 40 years after it originally aired.
