Cross country road trip in honor of dad turned into one last gift from him to daughters | Momaha

I’d expected the trip to be emotional — cathartic, even — but I hadn’t expected it to be fun. We laughed and talked incessantly across five states (more apologies to my teenager), so 20 hours of driving felt like only a few. We stopped at the historical landmarks our dad would have stopped at, and we took him into mountain creek beds, questionable gas stations and a slew of establishments serving the pickle-and-onion-only burgers he adored.

When we realized at the “Welcome to Cheyanne” sign that I’d misrouted us and we shouldn’t have actually been in the state of Wyoming at all, we cackled to the point of tears until we remembered dad had lived in Cheyanne when he was younger. He had always spoke of it as a place he loved. It felt like he had a hand in our detour, so we reveled in his stop off before

She also claimed he “fell in with a bad crowd” in the spirit world and started bringing ethereal playmates back to their home.

The psychic explained: “We’ve called the wedding off. It was going really well until we went on holiday. He completely changed.

Good news for Amazon: Prime Day just turned into a holiday shopping event | National News

Prime members skew higher income, which may make these shoppers less susceptible to job losses and a stimulus bill not being passed, analysts say. Prime shoppers may be spending less on travel and other leisure activities than they did before the pandemic. This means they’ll have more to spend on electronics, kitchenware and other items from Amazon.

“If anything, many people are flush with cash and it could drive higher sales this year,” said Brian Yarbrough, analyst at Edward Jones.

Plus, the pandemic has given a boost to ecommerce spending as more people shop online from home. Amazon is benefiting from the trend.

Telsey Advisory Group forecasts Prime Day sales of up to $11 billion for Amazon, a 40% increase from last year’s event, which was held in July. The spike in online shopping as consumers order from home and increased participation from small businesses is expected to help drive

Inside the Country Life of Model Turned Organic Farmer Kirsten Owen

KIRSTEN OWEN’S conversion from high-fashion model to organic blueberry farmer had everything from blind luck to sheer happenstance behind it. “I had a fantasy about having a blueberry farm after I moved here, in 2002,” she says of her 56-acre patch of land in northern Vermont, from which she speaks via landline. “And then some land right next to me, which already had 250 young blueberry plants, came up for sale. I couldn’t resist.”

To cope with pandemic stress, many women turned to alcohol, continuing a worrying trend

Alcohol-related deaths are on the rise in the U.S., a report published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds.

The report, from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, found that deaths from alcohol use increased by 43 percent from 2006 to 2018.

The findings, which don’t include data from this year, come as other research highlights how drinking remains a problem for many in the U.S., particularly among women.

Indeed, the CDC report found that the impact was greatest on women. “While rates were higher for males than females for each year,” the study authors wrote, “the rate of change was greater for females.”

The report didn’t give reasons for the increase among women, but it suggested that women living far outside city limits may have been more at risk. “From 2000 through 2018, greater percentage increases in the rates
