2012 VIDEO: PRINCE WELCOME 2 CHICAGO CONCERT REVIEW; DAY 2 BRINGS JENNIFER HUDSON; LEAVES FANS AMAZED & ANGRY

The amazingly talented icon, Prince, was in Chicago this week for his highly anticipated concert. During a rare visit his “Welcome to Chicago” tour was designed to help the organization Rebuild The Dream. Although it was a worthy cause, many fans were more interested in seeing the lovely little man with huge artistic flavor.

Well, many that attended day one appeared to leave the United Center feeling a bit disappointed. My friend even called me to support that rumor, making me fearful that the whopping $169 per ticket investment may have been a big mistake. She complained that he did not sing many of his most beloved songs and rarely picked up his guitar.

It made me wonder…would I too have a bad experience?

(VIDEO) $7 MILLION IN GOLD COINS & BARS FOUND BY REALTOR; MAN DIES WITH NO WILL

It’s good that the housing market has picked up.  Otherwise the Realtor in Carson City, Nevada may have thought twice about returning his findings.  When Walter Samaszko, Jr. recently passed away, the real estate agent was hired to sell his home.  To his amazement he found $7 million worth of gold coins and bars left behind in Samaszko’s garage and throughout his home.

The realtor said it took multiple trips with a wheel barrel to get it out of the home and was more gold than he had ever seen.  Believe it or not, the man did not have a Will and no wife or kids so his extremely lucky cousin is expected to inherit it all!

Well, the moral of the story is to make sure you prepare a Will before you die.  And…Real Estate Agents are trustworthy and ethical; although sometimes ranked below Attorneys!  Congrats to the honest Realtor for giving us all a GOOD NAME!

Darn…too bad he’s not related to me…I could have used that gold!

NEW CHICK-FIL-A OPENS IN BOLINGBROOK, IL 9/6/12

BOLINGBROOK residents seem thrilled about the addition of a new Chick-Fil-A restaurant in the neighborhood.  The grand-opening was held on September 6, 2012 and dozens camped out for a freebie.  The “First 100” who stayed at the location until 6 a.m. Thursday, received gift certificates for 52 combination meals.

The Village of Bolingbrook made the list of Best Places to live in 2010 published by CNN Money.  As the Bolingbrook area continues to grow, so does the expansion of eateries and shopping.o their decision to open a new store in the area comes as no surprise.  As a long-time resident of Bolingbrook…I have to agree with it being a great place to live!

News sources report that no protests were planned after the recent controversy regarding same-sex marriages.  In my opinion, business owners should keep their personal feelings separate and focus on operations, if they want to stay successful.  While some may protest their position by not supporting the new chain, the chicken sandwich is undeniably tasty.

The new Chick-Fil-A is located at 245 N Weber Road, in front of Meijer grocery store…http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations/Openings.
