People change?!?!? It can happen.

Witness what happened to an Evangelical Christian Mother who learned her adult daughter is gay. ‘Above All Things: The Journey of an Evangelical Christian Mother and Her Lesbian Daughter' by Shari Johnson whose world turned upside down the night her 37-year-old daughter called and told her that she was gay. As she wrote in the Washington Post recently, "I had been an evangelical Christian for more than 30 years and thought that this was the worst thing that could happen — to a parent, to a Christian, to me." This just couldn't be possible. Cholene had always been the hero-Air Force Academy graduate, second woman to fly the U-2 spy plane, captain for United Airlines - she cried, begged, pleaded with God to change Cholene, but he changed Shari instead. It seems that he was much more concerned about Shari's lack of love than he was about Cholene's homosexuality.

Picture perfect fathers' day gift!

Jake McGuire, one of America's most accomplished photographers, is giving away a minimum of 500 free copies of his most popular photograph, "Marine One" so Washington families can give their fathers an eye-popping gift. The photo is a straight-on view of the Presidential Helicopter flying down the National Mall,it is McGuire's hottest selling image so he is making this signed, 11x14 gift-sized prints available for the next few days so families can thrill dad on June 17th. FREE!(The print is a $40 value.) Click here to see it. The photo is particularly dynamic because the heat from the turbine engines creates the mirage effect on the Capitol Dome. Free photos can't be shipped (proper packaging and shipping is too costly for a free photo offer.) He will have them for the next few days from 7-9 AM at Starbucks Lyon Village Lee Highway at Spout Run PKWY Arlington.

Pop-Up restaurants aren't about pop-overs

Nor is a Pop-Up restaurant a pop-off restaurant (that would be one run by Chef Gordon Ramsay). Join us as we head to a pop-up created by Aaron Silverman and his team for the Potomac Construction Services team.

Trying to keep teens alive

It was a glamorous gala in the Italian Embassy but the cause was not glamorous. The 19th Annual Metro TeenAids Auction raised needed money to continue fighting a constant battle to keep HIV/AIDs from spreading among our teens. Through education, support, and advocacy, Metro TeenAids provides HIV testing and counseling, promotes responsible decision-making as part of its in-school and after-school school programs, and improves the quality of life for young people who are HIV-positive, at risk of HIV infection, or in families with HIV/AIDS.
