What a great day for America and the future of this country. Wooo-hoooo!!! For the first time ever, every candidate and every proposal I voted for actually won!

The Wonder Twins Do…new Kids On The Block?

The Wonder Twins have a confession to make: During a dark and confusing period that spanned sixth and seventh grade, D’Anne and Laura were huge New Kids On The Block fans.
