Is it just me, or is it hard to get excited about eating out when you can create something just as good, if not better at home for a fraction of the price? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy someone else doing all the work in the kitchen for a change. But when I'm shelling out 3 or 4 times what it would cost for me to make the exact same dish at home and actually season it properly and serve it at the correct temp, I tend to get a little "per-turbed" ... as my mother would call it. (I'm not even sure if that is word).
I will have to say that being at Intrust Bank Arena while during a tornado warning was going on was something I certainly had nevered experienced. Usually you experience something like that with your family in a basement or someplace you've taken shelter but being someplace with thousands of other people was so surreal. I was impressed how calm everyone was. I was very lucky to be with a couple of my record guys who work with Miranda, Chris and Jerrod's labels so they took me back stage to watch the radar - I later realized we were in Jerrod Niemann's dressing room.
Have you watched this about Caine and his do-it-yourself video? It really touched my heart. They've raised a lot of money too to help put this incredible boy through college. It's about ten minutes long - but it's definitely worth taking ten minutes to watch it. It makes you feel like there are lots of good people in this world!
