You might want to put this on your "must do" list for this fall. A corn maze here in California is the largest in the country. It's in Dixon California near Sacramento, covers 63 acres, the corn stalks are 7 feet high, it takes around 2 hours to get through it and find the one way out, and thousands of people get lost in there every year.

Some customers weren't able to view videos, surf the web, or use their GPS system even though they paid for unlimited data. AT&T of course says it's not true, and it's disputing the lawsuit.

Giant Jesus Statue/Footprints In The Sand

on .

14-foot Jesus statue titled "Footprints In the Sand"

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only. This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?" The Lord replied, "The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you."

Robber has a change of heart

on .

It's never too late to do the right thing. There may still be consequences but that didn't stop a robber in Northern California from listening to that tug on his heart. A 23 yr old robbed a gas station in Eureka, but came back a few hours later to return the money and apologize. He told officers he took the money so he could leave town and have a fresh start in life but realized that was not the way to start fresh. He did go to jail but at least now he can live with himself and accept his punishment like a man.
