Sure, we've heard of people getting closure after a break-up by burning photos of their ex, or maybe a few items of clothing their ex had left behind. Those are small, controlled fires. THIS is not.

His new girlfriend ended up putting out the fire. Kaelyn was arrested for two counts of arson. She told the cops she did it, quote, "to get closure on her relationship."
Her ex-boyfriend, Brian Morris, was also arrested because of the shotgun and throwing the boots. He was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and domestic battery.
LEANN RIMES used a secret weapon to keep her emotions in check during her tribute to PATSY CLINE at Tuesday's ACAs. Every time she started to cry, she would think about SEX.
She says, quote, "It was intense. [Patsy's] touched so many people. Then about halfway through 'Crazy' you see people who start to cry and then you're like, oh my God.
"My guitar player, he's always giving me the trick that works, he's like, 'always think about sex when you start to cry.' And I was thinking about sex a lot through the whole thing. By the end of it, it was just such an emotional moment for me."

A never-before released JOHNNY
It features two duets with his wife, JUNE CARTER
And this isn't a bunch of sessions slapped-together to make a buck . . . it's a completed album that his record company decided not to release. Fortunately, Johnny saved the tapes and his son John Carter Cash found them just last year.
An interesting side note is that it also featured a young MARTY STUART on guitar.
The new producers decided to "fortify" the original tapes so they brought Marty back, plus some studio musicians and June's daughter CARLENE CARTER.
No other changes were made to the record, so it's like we're getting a brand new Johnny Cash album 10 years after his death.

You're most likely to get bitten by a tick between the months of April and September, partly because there are more of them, and partly because you're more likely to be outside.
But May and June are when a whole new crop of ticks show up, so you have to be especially careful right now. If you don't know much about ticks or Lyme disease, you're not alone. Here's a list from the magazine "Prevention" of four common myths.
Myth #1. You Can Remove a Tick with Perfume, Alcohol, or Vaseline. Not true. And you also shouldn't try the trick where you light a match next to it.
Instead, use a pair of tweezers, grab as much of the tick as you can, and pull it out gently without twisting it. Then wash your hands, and use rubbing alcohol to disinfect the bite mark.
Myth #2. You'll Know If You've Been Bitten. Actually, tick bites are painless. And even though the telltale sign is a red dot with a bull's eye pattern around it, not everyone gets that.
If you get Lyme disease, the main signs are flu-like symptoms. But it can take two or three weeks before they show up.
Myth #3. Every Tick Carries a Disease. No, but it is more common than it used to be. And that's partly because the population of DEER TICKS has gone way up.
The three most common species in the
Myth #4. If You Get Bitten by a Tick with Lyme Disease, You'll Get Sick. That's true if you don't DO anything about it. But if you remove the tick within 24 hours, you'll probably be fine.
That's how long it typically takes for them to transmit Lyme disease, because the bacteria that cause it live in their stomachs. And it takes about a day for them to make it all the way to their mouth. (Prevention)
