Home Improvement - 06/02/14

Since moving to Nashville, my weekends have mainly been consisted of house renovations.  My husband and I bought our first house (a fixer-upper) and have been workinghard on completing our first DIY project... the kitchen.  Now, I know that sounds like a big challenge for our first project, but since we started with half a kitchen, we figured might as well get it done.  We put in the backsplash this past weekend... the finishing touch!   It turned out great.  We're so pleased with the finished product, and it feels even better to know we did it ourselves!

OBAMA-BIRTHDAY

WASHINGTON (AP) -- He's one VIP who doesn't have to stand in line. President Barack Obama celebrated his 54th birthday last night at Rose's Luxury. The trendy Washington restaurant is known for the hours-long wait to get in. First lady Michelle Obama tweeted birthday wishes yesterday to her "favorite dance" partner. She said 54 "looks good" on the president. But President Obama may not agree. He told a White House event that he's "so gray," but otherwise feels good.

DRIVING TEST-PROPOSITION

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) -- It's not the way to pass your driving test. Authorities charge a Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration driving inspector offered to pass a young woman in exchange for a sex act. Police say Daniel Perry flunked the woman because she didn't come to a full stop at a stop sign. Court documents show Perry is accused of offering to change her score in exchange for a sexual favor. Police say the woman immediately reported Perry to authorities. WJLA-TV reports the MVA also has fired Perry.

The timber rattler is on the state list of endangered species. According to Maryland Natural Resources Police the five guys were on a camping trip. They now face a number of charges including killing the snake and pot possession.

UNCLAIMED LOTTERY WINNINGS

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lots of lottery winners are now losers in Wisconsin. State officials report more than 2 million bucks in lottery jackpots went uncollected during the fiscal year that ended June 30. Lottery officials say more than 57 mil worth of winning tickets haven't been cashed in since 1997. But the absent-minded winners are giving state homeowners a break. The uncollected jackpots go toward property tax relief in Wisconsin, showing up as a credit on tax bills.
