Detroit 187 Producer Says Show Cancelled « CBS Detroit


Detroit 187 Producer Says Show Cancelled « CBS Detroit

This was Charles and I's couple time tv shows! As a fan of NYPD Blue it was great to see a police tv show with all the quirks and spice that we loved but in a new show.

You realized that you couldn't fall in love with a character because they may end up dead. Not many tv shows are willing to do that to their major characters.

While there will be no more new episodes we'll continue to watch them at Hulu. Thank goodness for that!

Tide Power is Available at Big Lots!


I found this original scent Tide powder box at Big Lots for $11.00! There were other scents available too.

Charles and I headed to Big Lots to stock up. Don't miss out before they're gone!

Allergy Season is Definitely Here!


The BerryMorin household is really suffering from this terrible allergy season!

Charles is congesting and sneezing. Marcus and I have been having sinus headaches. My eyes have been watering as soon as I wake up.

We treat our symptoms with natural remedies. Hot tea, ice pack on my eyes, and my Neti Pot have been very helpful.

Instead of using Neti Pot's sinus rinse I make up my own following the WebMD recipe. But, I do cut down on the amount of salt. It burns my nose.

Marriage, Rough Times and the Kids: Praise and Coffee


Who hasn't heard of the scandal behind the Arnold and Maria separation? While I think it's always a sad day when I hear of a marriage ending I cannot help but wonder how all the children are being affected by this.

I now that the issues in my parent's marriage affected me deeply. It took many years of therapy and distance to have a happy marriage.

Charles and I have had some rough times, in our marriage but with love, time, prayer and counseling we've healed.

Marcus has grown into a healthy, caring young man. Isn't that every parent's wish?

Praise and Coffee is asking Would you forgive and continue in your marriage? Or would you walk out?
