Miley Cyrus' VMA Acceptance Speech

Momservation: The harder someone tries to prove they’re grown up, the more infantile they look.

☺ ☺ ☺

It is the performance heard around the social media world. It lit up Twitter, setting a new record for tweets per minute. It has caused a social media storm that has the Parents Television Council urging us to grab our children and run for cover from the filth and debauchery the MTV Video Music Awards continues to rain upon us. And the Urban Dictionary is likely to crash due to adults over 30 rushing to look up “twerking.”

Miley Cyrus you have arrived.

Your parents must be so proud.

Your fiancé has to be thrilled that he scooped you up when he did.

Your friends must be giddy by association.

Your publicist so grateful for all that you’ve done…

…to ruin everything you’ve done to be taken seriously as an artist and be accepted as a quality human being...

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

After a varied and colorful career spanning everything from environmental activism to running a passport photo business, Marty Nelson opened Video Lab Multimedia, now located at 2630 Arden Way. Since 1985, as he tells it, he’s been in the business of saving memories.

In fact, Nelson is confident that Video Lab provides the most comprehensive source for saving memories in Sacramento and possibly Northern California.

In short, customers bring in everything from VHS tapes, audiotapes, vinyl records, old photos and negatives, professional format video, 8 and 16mm film and just about everything else out there and Nelson transfers, duplicates or even edits them into a more contemporary, durable, longer lasting digital format, including DVDs and hard drives. Memories saved!

And what sorts of memories is Nelson saving? Everything from irreplaceable home movies to slides of precious family vacations to old ¼ inch audiotape reels.

The tragic loss of Galt Officer Kevin Tonn is embraced within the community he so valiantly served..

Although the tragic killing of a law enforcement officer occurs relatively infrequently, each time it does, there is displayed a flay in the American fabric. Each time a warrior hero such as Galt Officer Kevin Tonn is torn from us, we lose not only a fine and talented and brave protector, we lose a chunk of our own sense of security. The shadows are a bit deeper and the days, unlike what the almanac states, seem a bit longer. A K9 dog, Yaro, is suddenly without a master, suddenly without his partner and best friend. We all have lost a friend.

Sacramento County Law Enforcement Senior Chaplain Mindi Russell, after days of sitting with the amazing family of Officer Tonn in both Galt and Roseville, now plans Monday's Funeral services, a task she and her office have too much experience in.
