    Camp Fire: After nurse burns truck saving others, Toyota tells him, ' We're honored to get you a new one':

    A nurse is being offered a new truck after his was scorched while he helped patients get to safety in the midst of the Camp Fire.
    Pierce told ABC all of the patients got out of the hospital thanks to the efforts of himself and others. He said he made two trips to get others to safety.

    After his harrowing ordeal, Pierce shared about the damage to his truck on social media, thanking Toyota and writing, "This truck literally saved my life today."
    Toyota then chimed in on the original post on both Facebook and Instagram, writing, "Don't worry about your truck, we're honored to get you a new one!"
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Barbara and George H.W. Bush spent 73 years together, becoming the longest married presidential couple in U.S. history. Just months before she died at age 92, Barbara Bush said she was "still old" and "still in love" with her husband.

    George Bush died on Friday at the age of 94.

    Their romance started at a Christmas dance.

    In 1941, George Bush, then 17, and Barbara Pierce, then 16, took notice of each other at the dance, just weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Per the Associated Press, Bush wrote of the meeting in his autobiography. He asked a friend if he knew her, and the pair were officially introduced.

    And when a waltz started to play, the two sat it out, because he didn't know how to waltz. Instead, they had to talk and get to know one another. "It was a storybook meeting," he wrote.


    Smitten already, the two started writing to each other, reuniting briefly over spring break to go on a double date to see Citizen Kane. Then, shortly after Bush enlisted in the Navy on his 18th birthday, they became each other's first kisses, something Pierce would describe for years to come.

    Less than a year later, he was deployed to fight in the war as one of the youngest naval pilots at the time. Right before he left, he and Pierce were engaged, according to the First Ladies National Library.

    While Bush fought in the war — and named his planes Barbara I, Barbara II and Barbara III — Pierce enrolled in Smith College.

    But her mind was never far from her fiance. Indeed, she would later describe how she was more focused on him than her studies. That especially became clear after Bush's plane was shot down in September 1944.

    Their engagement was officially announced in the newspaper in December 1944. Pierce dropped out of school, and the couple was reunited on Christmas Eve that year, while Bush was on leave.

    They married two weeks later, on Jan. 6, 1945.
    "One problem with people who have no vices is that they're pretty sure to have some annoying virtues."

    More than 1,200 breweries answer Sierra Nevada's call for Camp Fire relief beer:

    The deadliest fire in California history has set into motion the largest charitable collaboration ever among the nation's breweries, as more than 1,200 have signed on to brew a beer to raise funds for those affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California.


    Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., which is located in Chico, California, part of Butte County but west of the areas hardest hit by the fire, fed first responders and displaced residents during the fire and handed out clothing, too.

    But Ken Grossman, who founded the brewery in 1980, wanted to do more. He decided to brew a special beer, Resilience Butte County Proud IPA, and donate all the proceeds to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund, which it seeded with a $100,000 donation.

    I'll drink a beer for a good cause! Or for a bad one even. But in this case a good one.

    1,750 Gold Star family members get holiday trip to Disney World from Gary Sinise Foundation:


    Over 1,000 Gold Star kids who have lost parents in the military traveled to Disney World this week for a special holiday trip provided by the Gary Sinise Foundation, according to the actor. In total, Sinise's foundation flew 1,750 people to Orlando, Florida, for a holiday trip to remember.


    "Each one of these children who are going on these airplanes have lost a parent in military services either combat related or illness or unfortunately suicide sometimes," Sinise told CBS Los Angeles. "We wanna take care of these kids and make sure they know we don't forget."
    Sinise took photos of the kids and their surviving parents as they boarded an American Airlines flight at LAX. Over 1,000 kids traveled to Disney this year, according to Sinise. Gold Star families packed into 15 planes, and they were treated to a five-night trip to the Orlando theme park, CBS Los Angeles reports.
