A Peter Pan actor surprised his Wendy co-star - and the audience - by proposing on stage at the end of the show. Sandor Stubl, 28 popped the question to his co-star and real-life girlfriend Jane Mary Sullivan, 22, at the end of their performance in Glasgow.

    I lived several years in Sacramento and loved it. Thinking of a way to go back before I turn into an ear of corn here in Boise, Idaho. Pronounced: BOYze. LOL

When Sacramento first developed the Kings I kind of shook my head. They've never been a very good team and I truly think they are a bit of a joke.

Thanks for today's blog. Brings back memories.
