Global Warming?

I would like to thank Al Gore for the awareness he has brought to the world about global warming. We awakened this morning to find snow!! My sinuses would also like to thank you as well.

I now know I am not from Ohio

The girls have started learning about their next state for school - Ohio. It was a random selection, so I have started looking up info for school other that what we got from the library. I ran across this and it is safe to say I know I am not from Ohio. Enjoy!

You know you're from Ohio if...
  • You don't think of Florida first when someone mentions Miami.
  • You snicker when someone's from Tiffin, because you think of the State Hospital.
  • You think Pro football teams are supposed to wear orange!
  • You've heard of 3.2% beer. Schools close for the state basketball tournament. Deer season, too.
  • You're proud of your state fair, but would rather go to Cedar Point.
  • You know all the 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction.
  • You live less than 30 miles from some college or university.
  • You know what a buckeye really is, and have a recipe for candy ones.
  • "Toward the lake" means "north" and "toward the river" means "south."
  • You've heard of the Great Nickel Beer Night Riot.
  • You know if other Ohioians are from southern or northern Ohio as soon as they open their mouths.
  • You root for a college team though you've never taken a class there.
  • You can spell words like Cuyahoga, Olentangy, Bellefontaine,and Tuscarawas *(Wapakoneta?) and you know which letter is doubled in "Cincinnati."
  • You always visit more than two amusement parks in one summer.
  • You know that Serpent Mounds were not made by snakes.
  • You know what game they're playing when the Mud Hens take on the Clippers.
  • "Vacation" means spending a day at Cedar Point or King's Island.
  • You measure distance in minutes.
  • Down south to you means Kentucky.
  • Your school classes were canceled because of cold.
  • Your school classes were canceled because of heat.
  • You've ridden the school bus for an hour each way.
  • You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
  • You know what's knee-high by the Fourth of July.
  • You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?"
  • You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
  • You think of the major four food groups as beef, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.
  • You carry jumper cables in your car.
  • You know what pop is.
  • You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
  • Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
  • You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie.
  • The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.
  • You think that deer season is a national holiday.
  • You know which leaves make good toilet paper.
  • You thought that the Michael Stanley Band was the most popular band in the country.
  • You actually understand these jokes then forward 'em to all your OH friends!!

So are you from Ohio?

Another interesting tibit

very interesting.

What.. Do my ears deceive me?

Got home last night and we knew no one was getting voted off AI last night. So I didn't really want to see the giving back. I am glad they are, but I just want to see rich stars asking for money. So, hubby and I were watching other things when we flipped over to fox to watch the news when we heard ...." Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing..." WHAT - OH MY GOODNESS!! How fabulous. I heard they took out Jesus' name, but still it is out there. The Lord's name is out there! Could you image the impact that show could have for Jesus? If you caught Jason Castro's performance a couple of weeks was "Travelin" which actually mentions Jesus. I was thinking - maybe Mandisa had a great impact while she was there.

Did anyone else here this?

Spreading Conservatism

Hubby and I got take a lovely trip to Boston this past weekend thanks to Northwest and Mom! When we knew we had to use our tickets we were trying to decide between Miami, Boston, and a few other locales. I wanted Miami because it is WARM, but we chose Boston because it was closer and our time would not be used up in the air.

It was a lovely trip except for the rain on Friday. Since it was raining we decided to put our rental car to good use. It was a fabulous car that we will never own unless it is very used. Thanks for the free upgrade Enterprise! We walked around Boston on our first day and then the rainy day we drove to Cape Cod. We had planned to go to Martha's Vineyard, but found out the lifestyle of people on the island and decided that we didn't care to see all that. Second option, Nantucket, but no - too much to put that car on the ferry. So, we drove to the tip of the cape. We tried to see the Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport, but were afraid to be attacked by some rogue family member. Seeing these seaside villages was very neat and to know some of these homes have been around for a LONG time. It was pretty cool seeing the Cape rainy and foggy.

Many of you may be wondering about the food - New England Clam Chowder - #1 - I may never be able to eat it at Red Lobster's again. Fresh crab cake - Mmmm Good!

Here are a few pics. Enjoy!

I bet they all wish they had theirs too...

Today was the exciting day at the WOUB television and radio stations in Athens. If you trying to listen to her today sorry, but I think it is going to be on Sunday. Once production is done we will receive a copy of the radio broadcast and a dvd of the animated book. She did a great job. If you do happen to hear the broadcast, sorry I can't shake the southern accent. Both girls were well behaved and had a great time. The station did a great job recognizing the talent, but next time too many kids in small room. Thankfully it was only 2nd and 3rd graders.

Here are a few pics from the day

Don't all news people have peanut butter with the news.

Here is Hannah reading her story on the radio. Great job and very eloquent.

Please notice the little girl in front of the green screen. I thought her outfit went very well with the green. Great job - one take!(almost)

Here is the producer of this lovely production. ALOT of buttons to push, and thankfully I was able to keep dear hubby away from them.

Later peeps!
