Let’s Be Good Hosts…

Let's Be Good Hosts...

With the St. George Marathon coming up in just a couple of weeks, and the World Senior Games starting the same week, we’re going to be inundated by participants and their family and friends. That means longer waiting times at the restaurants and slower traffic. It’s easy to get a little impatient at times but…

Get On Board….The Train Is Leaving The Station!

Get On Board....The Train Is Leaving The Station!

September crept quietly into our lives and suddenly here it is RODEO WEEK! I don’t know about you, but as soon as the Lion’s Roundup Rodeo begins, the clock speeds up and it’s a whirlwind of events and activities non-stop until the New Year! So jump on the train because it’s headin’ to the rodeo, with…

It’s Rodeo Time!

It's Rodeo Time!

Wow! 80 years strong! The 80th Annual Lion’s Dixie Round-Up Rodeo is a week from today! Sept 11-13 are the dates for the historic round-up rodeo, held in the Sunbowl. There’s a lot of history with the rodeo. And the Sunbowl. Many say it wouldn’t be the same rodeo if it were to be moved to…

The Amazing Ice Bucket Challenge!

The Amazing Ice Bucket Challenge!

   If you haven’t done the ice bucket challenge or know someone who has, then where have you been? This thing literally went viral all over the country, to support ALS. As I understand the rules, (which are often reinterpreted), someone who is challenged can pony up a $100 donation to decline the ice bucket. Or they…

Things To Do When You’re Bored…

Things To Do When You're Bored...

I was curious about what some people do when they’re bored. I read a whole lot of crazy things you can do (gathered from the internet) and while there are certainly a lot of “different” things you can do when bored, such as text messaging your friends backwards and see how long it takes for…

Don’t Ya’ Just LOVE Telemarketers???

Don't Ya' Just LOVE Telemarketers???

Ok. I think I’ve had enough of telemarketers. I signed up my home phone number and cell number with the National Do Not Call Registry…..but that hasn’t seemed to have helped much. But maybe it has. Many still call me. Seems like daily to me. Here are a few tips from an actual telemarketer to help you avoid…

Time To Get Back To School Kids!!

Time To Get Back To School Kids!!

Parents already know too well that the kids are back in school August 11th…..they don’t need to be reminded. I do remember the back to school thing all too well as both a student and parent. I remember mom buying us new overalls (I think the kids call them designer jeans now….) that were so…

Fair time is fun time! And a busy time for us and a lot of other people that work hard to bring you and your family great food and fun! What’s your favorite fair food? Favorite fair event? Favorite amusement ride? I love the Navajo tacos……my favorite! The demo derby has turned into the biggest event at…

Rain, Rain, Come My Way!!

Rain, Rain, Come My Way!!

I’m starting to wonder if we’re being picked on by mother nature where the rain thing is concerned!! Not fair! I live in the Green Springs area of Washington City and for the last several weeks we have been ignored by the rain. Just the other day my daughter send me a video of the…

Are You Ready To Dump Your Landline?

Are You Ready To Dump Your Landline?

While American families are dumping their landlines and going completely wireless more and more everyday, I still have trouble taking the plunge. Chase tells me it’s a comfort thing. That I feel safer and better-connected to the world with a landline. But more and more everyday I see that I’m getting fewer and fewer calls…
