A family in our neighborhood was MURDERED!

Not even joking. This is the kind of thing you read about in fiction novels. SAD and SCARY.

It sounds like what could possibly be a quadruple murder. Does it get any scarier than that ? Yesterday around 10:30 am the neighbors noticed the home on fire and called 911. They banged on the doors and windows trying to let the family inside know that the house was on fire, but all the doors and windows were locked. When the fire rescue arrived they got into the home and found 4 bodies in an upstairs bedroom. The bodies were the mother and 3 children and they did not die as a result of the fire. The are ruling it a possible homicide. The cause of the fire and deaths are still undetermined.

This is totally freaking me out, I couldn't sleep last night. I honestly can not even believe that something this terrible happened a few houses away, on a Sunday morning in our regular boring neighborhood. I will update with more info as details are released.

In the spirit of the season....

I thought I'd post a little something to keep all you office folk busy. We all get breaks, but what you do with them is your business. Here is what I do with mine. I got crafty.Eat your heart out Martha Stewart.

Office Cornucopia.

Lets face it, I like the Horn O'Plenty. I always have, so today I decided to create my own, right here at my desk.

1 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper
Your favorite items from your desk, or your neighbors desk if you're into stealing.

First position your paper like so:
I used color paper, because I like nice things. But if your office is cheap and only buys you the white 79 brightness crap, use that.

Bring top left corner of paper down to the opposite corner then curl in toward the center. (Make a cone, OK!). Tape the edges of the paper to secure the shape of your Horn.

Next choose an assortment of items from your desk to fill your Cornucopia. It is OK to let them flow out a little, I mean it is a horn o'plenty, not a Horn o'just enough. Here are the items I chose:

Next fill your Horn with all your precious items. Traditionally you are supposed to fill it with the large items first, but sometimes you just gotta jam it in there until it fits.
Here it is half full:
