This company looks to make the Holidays brighter for selected military families!
In case you haven’t heard of Christmas Decor, they are a company that you can hire to decorate your home for the holidays. But every year, the company also has a service project to bring cheer to those who really need it.
It’s the Decorated Families program. They take nominations, which are underway now, for military families whose homes they can decorate to the hilt. You can submit a family for consideration by filling out a form and sharing the story of the military member and his or her kin.
Why is this a big deal for Christmas Decor? Because over 170-thousand troops are serving overseas and that means a lot of families being separated for the holidays. The deadline for submission is Veterans Day, November 11. You can go visit here for more info. At least 200 homes will be decorated for the project!

Cussing grandma wants to play BINGO!!
Lena Taylor, a 90-year-old retiree from England, has been sentenced to 12-months community service after admitting to making hundreds of “abusive” 911 calls cursing and demanding pastries and rides to bingo. She appeared in court many times for the offenses, reportedly making 420 calls to the emergency service in the span of a month-and-a-half.
While the court was told that Taylor called 911 a few times requesting an ambulance, with only one of them calling for actual medical treatment. In fact, she treated it more like a delivery service than an emergency service. For example, during one of the calls asking for an ambulance, she said, “Bring me a cup of tea and a pasty – hurry up I’m starving.”
As for the other few hundred calls, they were laced with profanity and didn’t sound much like emergencies. “I’ve done my dinner, I need someone to take me to bingo to keep me calm,” she reported as saying during one cleaner call. “I’m not going to sit in this house all day.”
