How did your life collide with the headlines in 2007?
Iraq, the subprime crisis, Facebook, immigration, oil prices - 2007 had no shortage of hefty headlines. We'd like to hear about how these and other major news events of the past year affected you. Where did your life collide with the news in 2007?

What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

Local New Hampshire
This weekend the local New Hampshire band, Groove Alliance, is embarking on their first international tour. They are calling it "Deadly Force Tour 2007" and their first stop is in Iraq. The band will be playing four to five shows to benefit the Starfish Network, an organization dedicated to sponsoring surgeries for children in Iraq. They will be playing for officials, service men and women, and Iraqis. We talk with Mike Pacheco, the lead singer, and his band mate Jesse Silva.
