Duct tape. It holds the batteries in when you lose the cover on the back of the remote. It seals leaky hoses. It patches torn tents. It also helped a woman in Dade City, Fla., find her calling. It all started six years ago when a Google search for crafts showed a bored Grace Grover how to make wallets and fake flowers out of the silver sticky stuff. She's since gone through more than 500 rolls of 11 various colors, and all friends and family members have received a duct-tape creation of some sort -- portrait of a snook, red-and-black woven purse, Jamaican-flag wallet.

I recently filmed a couple of movies to submit to a contest about Teen Pregnancy. The contest, organized by the Washington County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition Inc., was geared to get teens to spread the message "sex has consequences. " Five writers for Pulse decided to work together to create a 10-minute film spot. I learned a lot from my role as director on what exactly filming a short film required.
