There is nothing anyone can do to take away the pain the community of Newtown, Connecticut is going through right now. But a charity group from Illinois is using man's best friend to provide a little comfort to those who are mourning the loss of life from last Friday's mass school shooting.
When Chris Burd was 13-years-old he went to the mall in Maplewood, Minn during Christmas time. He was with his three-year-old sister, and to appease her he also sat on the lap of the mall's Santa Claus and asked for gifts.
Fast forward 13 years. Chris had recently become engaged when he got a call from his mother who tells him she had made an interesting discovery while going through a batch of old pictures.
Donald Albritton's marriage was going through a rough patch, so he turned to his ex-girlfriend for help. The catch is Megan White, the 35-year old's former-flame, didn't exactly get a say in the matter...

'National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation' was the third, and considered by many to be the best, installment in the 'Vacation' franchise.

Ever heard the expression "that and a dime will get you a cup of coffee"? Well, not that long ago a cup of coffee did cost a dime. (And you can still get a cup for well less than a dollar in many places.)
Of course, Starbucks began blowing the lid off the coffee price structure about 15 years ago. Now the average latte at the ubiquitous chain costs around four bucks. And if java lovers want a Grande-sized cup of Starbucks' newest coffee, Costa Rica Finca Palmilera, they will have to shell out $7.
