 Funeral arrangements are still pending an autopsy of inspirational artist Thomas Kinkade who passed away unexpectently from natural causes last Friday.  Kinkade known as the “Painter of Light” was 54 years old.  BTW: Kinkade was an art school dropout from a broken home.  He became a born-again Christian in 1980…when he was peddling his inspirational landscapes out of the trunk of his car. www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/09/thomas-kinkade-christian-painter-death-questions-remain_n_1413217.html

The new online site Pinterest is the third most-visited social-networking site in the US, just behind Facebook and Twitter.  The ranking is based on the total number of U.S.visitors during March and does not include mobile traffic.  BTW: Pinterest lets users “pin” photos and info from the Internet onto virtual boards.  President Barack Obama recently joined Pinterest.   http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/06/tech/social-media/pinterest-third-social-network/index.html

The city of Greensboro will start charging $2 dollars if you want to park in one of the city’s four parking decks after hours.  The Greensboro News and Record reporting that the city of Greensboro hopes to bring in an additional $245,000 dollars from the fee.  Parking after 6pm has been FREE for the past 10 years. 

Bubba Watson, the latest winner of the Master’s in Augusta, told CBN Sports earlier this year that he gives God all the credit for his success in the sport. But he added that winning isn’t what’s most important thing to him.  “Knowing that God has a purpose for me, no matter what, he has a purpose. And for some reason he has chosen golf for me.  There are so many great Bible verses that mean a lot to me and they all have behind them the message, ‘Jesus loves me.’  So what’s next for golf’s newest ‘star’?  Watson (33 years old) said he’s going home to change some diapers. He and his wife adopted a baby boy just two weeks ago.  www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2012/April/Golf-Champ-Bubba-Watson-Credits-God-for-Success/
