What to get mom for Mother's Day?  That's what question usually pops into my head this time of year.  My Mom's birthday is near mother's day as well, so I have to get one great gift or a couple of nice gifts.  In college, or in a tough economy, that's kinda hard to do.  Plus the gift shouldn't be how much you can spend, but how thoughtful you can be.  Here's 5 gifts I've gotten Mom for Mother's da

Man Wins Against City in Fight for ‘Flower Potty’
William Terry has fought the battle of the abode since last winter when city officials sent him a citation for his toilet-turned-flower-pot and asked him to remove it promptly. Disgruntled, Terry argued that he was merely recycling an otherwise useful object and went around town taking pictures of other unsightly planters he'd noticed. The judge ruled in Terry's favor since the city code definitio
