  • Dog CANNOT let go of his owner..

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     

    Wiley the wolf-dog was very close to it's owner's late grandmother Gladys, so much so that he seems to cry at her graveside.

    The wolf-dog lays on the tombstone, shaking, and makes what sounds like sobbing noises as the family gathers around him.

    The heart-breaking video was posted to YouTube a couple of weeks ago.

    While some critics claim the dog was “reverse sneezing,” the owner insists that the dog’s “crying spell” is something that he never did before that day and hasn’t done since.

     

     

  • Look what country star is getting divorced

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     

    According to Us Weekly,

    Jason Aldean and his wife, Jessica Ussery, have separated, seven months after Jason admitted that he "acted inappropriately" with former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr.



    A source says the couple has been apart since January. "There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year."

    A rep for Jason is quited saying:  "I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."

    Jason and Jessica have been together since high school, and married for 11 years. They are parents to two young daughters, Keeley and Kendyl. 

    This makes me sad, but not too suprised!

  • The new $100 Bill...

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     

    Get ready to start taking out $100’s from the bank - the US Federal Reserve have redesigned the bills which will go into circulation in October.

    Believe it or not the $100 bill is the most used US currency in the world - accounting for 80% of US currency. A large portion of these are held outside of the US and used by many who traffic drugs and weapons.

    The new bills have upped their security measures - but still feature Ben Franklin on the front.

  • Billy Currington...arrested!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     

    Country singer Billy Currington has been indicted on charges of making terrorist threats against an elderly man.

    A Savannah judge issued a bench warrent has been issued for Billy after a Chatham County grand jury found "sufficient evidence" against him, reports CNN.

    Though the prosecutor did not give any other details about the allegations, TMZ reports that the 39-year-old singer allegedly chased down 70-year-old tour boat captain Charles Ferrelle, and threatened to F*** him up and kill him, on April 15th

    Police told local news station WSAV that Currington and Ferrelle had a verbal argument at a dock owned by the singer, and when Farrelle reportedly moved to a nearby dock, Currington boarded his own boat, followed him to a public dock and began to threaten the elderly man.

    According to the police report, Farrelle told the cops:

    "If I hadn't gotten into my slip fast enough, I believe [Currington] would have run me over."

    Reps for the singer have not commented on the charges, but Currington did post a message via Twitter, writing:

    hey guys, I wanted to thank everyone for the huge amount of support that I have received already. Unfortunately, I can't comment on this
