This is a poem I wrote. I enjoy writing them. I have been writing them since 1984 when my Nanny passed away. My poems have been about sadness, sorrow, hate, dispair and love. This is how I coped with life as a teenager and it is a way I can freely express my feelings.




                I Love You
He is the man i always knew he was....
All the teasing all the cheering up....
Always knew what i needed and when....
I did not know then what i know now....
But ii am glad i know now what always had been....
My love grows ever so strongly as i sit and wait ...
Know matter the circumstance you make me strong....
When we are together nothing else matters....
I love you < 3

BRANTLEY GILBERT accepted a challenge to do a Polar Plunge . . . so he ripped off his shirt and jumped into the still frigid Cumberland River, next to Nashville. He even did a pretty wicked backflip.

A new Dutch beer commercial shows the dead celebrities Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee alive and well . . . and hanging out together in a tropical paradise. Basically, the idea is that they're hiding out together. At the end of the ad, a ship rolls up . . . and they all quickly take cover.

"Veronica Mars" (PG-13)
"Veronica Mars" was a teen detective series 10 years ago starring Kristen Bell. It ran for three seasons . . . on the Mighty UPN and then the CW . . . and has a pretty strong cult following. They've been trying to breathe new life into it for years. In fact, the movie was funded by a Kickstarter campaign.

I hear Artistic Freedom mentioned all the time and have been wanting to share my "art" with you. My passion is animal rescue. I have 6 "furkids" that have all been adopted, rescued, or collected along the side of a lonely road. I volunteer with several animal rescues and have been known to take in a foster dog here and there. After the wonderful gift of a camera from my husband, I began snapping away; combining my love of animals with taking pictures. I have attached a few for you to see (they are all of my babies). I also volunteer to photograph adoptable pets for shelters and rescues in hopes that "attractive" pictures will increase interest and adoption rates. Please know, I am not a professional by any means. It is just something I love to do as a hobby.
I have a Facebook Page called Critter Captions which is my platform for a lot of things. I started it as my way of helping animal rescues and shelters raise money by selling homemade pet treats, handmade pet products, and pet portrait sessions. Here is the link to the "Critter Captions Pet Photography" photo album where you can see a lot more pictures...
I have also done a lot of photos for Tara's House Animal Rescue. They can be seen here...

There's a HI-larious behind-the-scenes video of BLAKE SHELTON and LUKE BRYAN filming promos for the April 6th ACM Awards. But the best part may be the "surprise" appearance from MIRANDA LAMBERT walking around wearing super-tight leggings. Oh, and TIM MCGRAW'S there too.

Sullivan Stapleton, who you may know from the Cinemax series "Strike Back", is the hero in this one. He plays a Greek general fighting off an invasion led by Eva Green, the bloodthirsty chick in charge of the Persian Navy. Lena Headey from "Game of Thrones" is back from the first film as the Queen of the Spartans and widow of Gerard Butler's character from "300". Rodrigo Santoro is also back as the Persian's god-like leader Xerxes.

This Dreamworks animation movie is about a talking dog who invents a time machine, and then goes back to ancient Egypt after his "adopted" human son changes history. Ty Burrell from "Modern Family" is Mr. Peabody, Max Charles from "The Neighbors" does the voice of Sherman, and Ariel Winter from "Modern Family" is the girl Sherman was trying to impress when they screwed up the space-time continuum.

My name is Brooke Morgan, I am a senior in high school at grace academy. I have been drawing my whole life, but I've never been able to take any classes on it. Recently I have  started to see my art come alive with each new sketch. The main reason I draw is to bring joy to others. I love to see people reactions when they receive a portrait of their pets or anything else I can draw for them. I am blessed to use the talents that God has given me to bring joy to others. Now I'm just trying to get my name out there. So any help I can get I take it ! Thanks for checking my work :)
