Jennifer: Awesome Affordable Vacuum
“Eureka Smartvac. About ten years ago we needed a new vacuum, and whenever we need something that requires plugging in, my husband puts his researcher hat on. He found this beauty (though ours is green. They’ve changed the look, apparently) for under $150 that out-performed the really expensive vacuums in Consumer Reports. It cleans the carpets and hard floors like a dream. In ten years the only thing we’ve had to replace is the hose once (and that was after a lot of abuse), and a belt once. The bags are cheap and easy to find, and the hepa filter is really nice. Anyone is invited to come over and give mine a test drive at any time! “
“People who serve in the military and are willing to leave their families to protect and serve our country are awesome.”

Chelsea: Awesome Animal Rescue Story
(Read the full story and see more photos here.)
Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, but this guy has pictures to prove his story…
Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat.
“Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed. I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it! Once on-board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering. We headed for Taku Harbour. Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had been pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say ‘thank you’ and disappeared into the forest. After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help (that’s him in the wheelbarrow). My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet. We didn’t know how long they had been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive. My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!”
