Volunteers of Lake Country
My recommendation would be Sandy Waterhouse who is one of the members of the core team that organizes the group named Volunteers of Lake Country. The group was formed a little over a year ago to match volunteers with non-profits in the Lake Country area. Sandy works tirelessly to help the group organize and staff various projects to benefit organizations that include Healthy Families of Waukesha, Waukesha Health and Human Services, Backpack Coalition, and many other Lake Country organizations. Please check out the website at www.volunteersoflakecountry.org.

Kathy Pyeatt, Co-Director of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions- Upper Midwest-WI Dis
Kathy Pyeatt is truly remarkable. She is currently a Co. Director of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition, Upper Midwest-- WI District, (MONCA--WI District). She just recently developed the co-director status this past year after she had taken over this event in the 90's from another remarkable woman Pat Crump. This organization has supported young singers for 50 years here in WI. Kathy raises scholarship money to help these young artist move to the next level and possibly the Metropolitan Stage. She found donors to sponsor the competition so it could move to the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center. She did this so each young artist would have an opportunity to know what it is like to perform on a professional stage. Not all MONCA regional competitions are like that. Some just have you perform in a room. That wouldn't do for Kathy. She is always striving to make this event better for the young artist that auditions in this competition. She makes sure these young artists get substantial money to pay for school, lessons, coaches, etc. Because of her, the WI district has one of the largest scholarship in the MONCA system. All the work is done through volunteers and Kathy has headed it all. Kathy is a collaborator. She understands the importance of working with other organizations to help the young artists that go through the MONCA-WI District. The young artist that have won encouragement awards from the 2011 competitions will be performing April 15, 2:00 PM, Dawes Studio Theatre, Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, which is sponsored by the Civic Music Association, (CMA )and Supporter of Opera Singers, (SOS). She has reached out to the Civic Music Association and Supporters of Opera Singers to give these young singers another opportunity to perform and grow. Kathy has been an amazing advocate for young artist and has made a difference to these young adults. She has helped make this event one of the best competitions in the country. Again she does this out of love for this art, as a volunteer and without pay. She is mother, performer herself, and past winner. She understands the sweat and blood that goes into singing and performing and advocates strongly for the young artist. You can go to the website and see first hand how she has helped young artist move onto the next level, http://www.moncwidistrict.org/. Please consider Kathy Pyeatt as your next remarkable woman for May.

Can You Get More Grey?
EL James, the best-selling author of the "50 Shades" trilogy, announced her newest literary endeavor yesterday. "Grey," the fourth book in the series, is the original "50 Shades" story, but told from Christian Grey's point-of-view. EL issued a statement about the event, quoted by US Weekly: "This book is dedicated to those readers who asked...and asked... and asked... and asked for this," James said in a statement. "Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place-writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe." "Grey" hits the bookstores on June 18 - if you're a real fan, you know that's Christian's birthday. (For the record, I didn't know that - it's in EL's Instagram post.)     Hello all. For those of you who have asked, Christian's POV of #FSOG is published on 18th June for his birthday. It's called GREY... I hope you enjoy it. #FiftyShades #Grey A photo posted by E L James (@erikaljames) on Jun 1, 2015 at 5:00am PDT

Carl Reiner is truly a comedy legend. He's been a TV staple for decades.Writer, performer, producer, director - he's done it all.

"JUST DO IT!"
I wish I had an explanation for this. A minute or so of Shia LaBeouf screaming "just do it!" in front of a green screen and telling me not to give up on my dreams. Um, thanks, Shia? It's hard to tell what exactly he's trying to accomplish here: Truly motivate people? Score a gig with World Wrestling Entertainment? Get a sponsorship from Nike? Yeah, I have no idea...

Redneck Avengers - Dang, This Here's Funny!
The folks at Bad Lip Reading have a knack for putting words into people's mouths. They take clips from TV shows and sporting events and movies, and voice them over with utter nonsense that is just plain hysterical. Their latest takes on Team Avengers, with "Redneck Avengers: Tulsa Nights." This is some funny stuff, I swear!

Who Knew Ping Pong Could Be This Exciting?
We've all played ping pong - also known as table tennis - at some point in our lives, right? You get a four, five, maybe six shot volley going, and you feel pretty good about it. How about a 41-shot volley? That would be amazing.

Is This Any Way to Sell a Book?
Harlequin Romances have long been known for cranking out fantasy novels about women being swept up by heroic men. Where every man has six-pack abs, and every woman has a heaving bosom and flowing locks of hair... I guess. I've only heard. But check out the way they're selling their newest title, "Never Trust a Cowboy." The theme of the video: Escape the Everyday. I guess when they've got to compete with mainstream blockbusters like "50 Shades of Grey," they've got to come up with something, right? Check out the promo - and see what you think...

Who Do You Think You're Kidding?
Bob Schieffer retired from CBS's Face the Nation yesterday, and he went out as a true journalist. His guest was Jeb Bush, brother of President George W. Bush, son of President George H. W. Bush, who may or may not be a presidential candidate in 2016. Bob nailed Jeb with a question about campaign finance regulations, and Jeb answered saying he was "nearing the end of this journey of traveling and listening to people, garnering, trying to get a sense of whether my candidacy would be viable or not," and then said he hadn't decided if he was running or not. Bob wasn't buying it. "Now, you’re not telling me that there’s a possibility you may not run?" A gentlemanly way of saying, "Who do you think you're kidding?" Nicely done, Bob. We'll miss you on Sunday mornings.

Leave the Drone Alone
Lesson learned the hard way for Enrique Iglesias. He was performing in concert in a bull ring in Tijuana when he tried to grab a drone that was floating above him, taking pictures of the crowd. It's something he's done before. This time, it didn't go so well. Check out this Instagram post about it. "Something went wrong and he had an accident. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding." He cut two fingers pretty badly, but kept performing, ending the night looking like maybe he'd been gored by a bull. He was flown to Los Angeles immediately afterwards and entirely treated there. No word on his condition.     LAST NIGHT IN #TIJUANA ENRIQUE IGLESIAS SUFFER AN ACCIDENT INTERACTING WITH THE DRONE IN THE SHOW Last night Enrique had a show at a bullfight ring in Tijuana, Mexico for 12k+ people as part of his #SexandLove world tour. During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding. He was advised to stop the show. He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show. He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there. He was then put on a plane to LA where we was then put on a plane to see a specialist. We will continue to update as we have more info. Thank you all for your love and concern.

Are You Ready for Manhattanhenge?
Manhattanhenge happens a couple of times each year. It's the name for the days on which the setting sun lines up perfectly with Manhattan's gridded streets to create some awesome pictures. Manhattanhenge happens tonight and tomorrow night. NBC New York reports the best places to witness it are cross streets like 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets. They recommend that you go as far east as you can in Manhattan without losing sight of New Jersey. Of course, that only works if you're in New York. So here's what it looked like a few years ago. And I'm sure you can find some decent video and shots on YouTube after tonight and tomorrow, asuming the weather cooperates.
