Impressive Frisbee Tricks [VIDEO]

How are your frisbee skills? Mine, you ask? My frisbee skills are terrible. Every time I throw one, it doesn't go where I would like it to go. I get a good throw every once in awhile, but for the majority of time, my frisbee either hits the ground or just veers too far to the right. That's why I was really impressed with these frisbee tricks because they were not only impressive, but I know I could never do anything like this. These are some great frisbee skills.

It’s National One Cent Day

In addition to today being April Fools' Day, I was doing some searching and discovered that it's also National One Cent Day. So, I guess in celebration, give someone a penny. Other than that, there's not much more information on National One Cent Day, or how to celebrate. Although, I did find some interesting facts about pennies.

Cat Playing a Theremin [VIDEO]

I hope I'm not the only one who did not know what a theremin was. I had to look up the meaning. So, here's the definition from Dictionary.com: "a musical instrument with electronic tone generation, the pitch and tone volume being controlled by the distance between the player's hands and two metal rods serving as antennas."

Zach Remembers Earl Scruggs [VIDEO]

In addition to country music, I absolutely love bluegrass music. When I think of bluegrass, I think of Bill Monroe, Alison Krauss and Union Station, The Del McCoury Band, and, of course, the one and only Earl Scruggs. When you think of great banjo players, he's at the top of the list. In my eyes, nobody can top his banjo playing skills. So, I was definitely saddened to hear of his death. He was definitely a legend.

Zach’s Chihuahua Mia Sings to Reba, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood [VIDEO]

She's at it again. My Chihuahua Mia is singing. I brought you a video a few months back of her singing to Miranda Lambert (click the link to watch it). Well, this time, she's singing to "Because of You" the Raba and Kelly Clarkson version and "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood. At about 1:36 in the video, Mia is spot on with the Carrie Underwood vocals. She really does love to sing. She does it all the time. If she had to pick a favorite country singer to sing along to, it would have to be Carrie.
