This storm is really funny – the media is freaking everyone out. Â Schools have been closed in Orange County nearly all week and all we had was a little rain and wind. They keep talking about how bad the
I am getting so frustrated watching gymnastics in the Olympics. My main beef is the 14 year old Chinese gymnasts. Â And then I can\’t see how Romania\’s Sandra Izbasa won the gold! Â She did a great floor
We just switched web servers to make sure everything would continue to run smoothly. So everything had to be put on hold until the switch was complete. Thanks for your patience.
We were on vacation out west and happened to turn the news on for the first time in a week. It was Fox news with a story about a missing girl. I didn\’t really pay attention, but my dad commented that
We\’ve been watching the Olympics every night since Friday and it is really amazing to see how great these athletes are. Tonight was the first night I was really frustrated with our Women\’s Gymnastics
Today I learned how to post on the blog more effectively, and it\’s so simple that I\’m surprised I didn\’t figure this out on my own. It\’s easy to write a story about what you did today, it\’s even easier
I am loving watching this housing market in Orlando fall! I know it is sad for those folks that paid way too much and now they can\’t sell. But for the ones where we offered and they refused – I have
And not the needle – the stuff they actually put in you! I know how it works and I agree that vaccines have saved many, many lives. But are so many of them necessary today? I just read an article about
I\’ve been posting a lot of “soap box” topics lately and Chris and I had a discussion on DUIs today. We agreed that if the penalties were strict, people wouldn\’t continue to do it. Last week a car hit
Chris came and begged me to drive him to McDonald\’s tonight. At 2am. And I agreed. Bad idea! The McDonald\’s he loves (and the one that is open 24 hours) is right next to a construction site. We
We are currently planning some hiking and camping trips for the summer – and it is a lot more work than it seems! Many of the National Park campgrounds book up months out and some open their reservations
I didn\’t want any bells and whistles in my FJ Cruiser but the choice of radio stations in Orlando is not good, and the one killer feature of my FJ is that it has an input plug for an MP3 player for the
Lately we have been traveling to cooler climates and whenever someone asks how we like Orlando we always say “we really like it, but it is way too hot all the time!” Then they always respond “Oh it gets
Doesn\’t that sound odd? And like a waste of money? How hard is it to put on a wedding dress? Apparently it isn\’t that easy! I\’ve seen at least 5 weddings this year where the dress was not put on
I have this fear of bridal showers and baby showers. I am trying to figure out why I don\’t like them and I think it all boils down to the presents. I never know what to buy! I know there are registries
We had a wedding tonight in a Catholic church. I can usually recite every reading and it is pretty predictable on what the priest will say for his sermon. But tonight was totally different – it was one
You never know who it might be!
Joshua Bell did a “stunt” with the Washington Post recently where he played in a Metro stop at rush hour. Check out the video:
Unbelievable! I think people get
I was thinking about this today and I thought I\’d let everyone know that I learned something funny from my Dad, although it did take me a few years to get it right.
Recently we decided to clean out
Did you hear about Disneyland closing the Small World ride? They are going to revamp it starting this month. Apparently we are not so small – and we are growing bigger each year. So much that the ride
I heard November Rain by Guns N\’ Roses in the car today and I was thinking about how much I loved the video when it came out back in 1992. Stephanie Seymour was so gorgeous and she rocked that Carmela
