Gary Church:I 'mustache' you a question. Do you believe in miracles?

NEW CASTLE — I don't know how it is at your house, but when my wife spring cleans, things just vanish.

For some strange reason, it's mainly my stuff that is never seen again on this planet.

This time it's my mustache trimmer. It has been on the same shelf in the bathroom closet for over 15 years.

I went to use it the other day and it was gone with the wind.

Since there are only 2 people living here, and one never cleans the bathroom closet, I blamed its disappearance on my wife.

She felt very guilty about it, and bought me a brand new mustache trimmer, that I must say is truly miraculous.

I have my reasons for thinking this.

Reason number one is, it's miraculous that I got it out of that hard plastic thing it came in. Whatever happened to just opening the box and taking out the trimmer?

It took me 20 minutes longer in the bathroom that morning just fighting with that plastic container.

I feel lucky to be alive.  I almost cut my left arm off trying to remove the trimmer.

Reason number 2 really surprised me.

After I finally got to the breakfast table, I was bombarded with questions on why I took so long in the bathroom.

I meekly explained step by step to her, what all I had to go through to get the trimmer out of that plastic thing.

After my explanation is when the miracle took place. She said my mustache looked a lot better.

This is the first time since I've know her, that she has complimented my mustache.

This trimmer truly produces miracles.

Then there is the 3rd miracle that happened, that I still can't explain.

The miraculous thing about her saying my mustache looked better was, I hadn't even used the thing yet.

Guys, I don't know if there are any of these trimmers left at Walmart, but I would get one before they run out, even if you don't have a mustache.

Who knows what your wife may say looks better on you, and you don't have to do anything!

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
