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…

Don’t You Just Hate It When You Lose Something?

Don't You Just Hate It When You Lose Something?

I did something the other day that REALLY bugs me. I left my favorite ear-buds on an airplane. Yes. A commercial airliner. And these weren’t the $19.95 ear-buds. Nor $49.95. These were hundred dollar ear-buds. Dang!! And they sounded SOOOO good. The bass response was superb and the clarity was AMAZING!!! So I realized my…

Soccer Is Growing Here, But Will Never Be In The Top 3

Soccer Is Growing Here, But Will Never Be In The Top 3

The FIFA World Cup of Soccer is on right now and it seems the sport is growing here, and that’s good. And as I’ve looked at the number of soccer fans in the USA, number of kids playing soccer, total number of teams amateur and professional, I do see quite a bit of growth in…

I’d Much Rather Have Rain Or Snow……Than Wind!!

I'd Much Rather Have Rain Or Snow......Than Wind!!

I went to Lake Powell over the weekend with a young adult outing that of course included plans to camp, ski, eat, and enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and shore lines that the Lake has to offer…..that is until the wind came up and made it difficult to enjoy. I’d been to Powell many times and have…

Remembering Dad This Father’s Day

Remembering Dad This Father's Day

Father’s Day is this Sunday. While this day doesn’t get the attention that Mother’s Day does, and rightly so, it’s still a day to make dad feel loved and appreciated. Dads are pretty cool. While mom is always the one you run to when you get hurt, or need a good cry because your boyfriend/girlfriend just…

Where There’s Smoke…

So here’s a few tips to remember…I know you know but it never hurts to remind!!…

Hey, Now That You’ve Graduated, Where You Going Now?? Disneyland!!

Hey, Now That You've Graduated, Where You Going Now?? Disneyland!!

Yup. Lotsa people headed to the “Happiest Place on Earth” now that school is over. Disneyland. Gotta love it. But you won’t love the recent price increase ONE WEEK BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND! Really? Today the price of a one-day, one park ticket for visitors 10 years and older increased $4 to $96, with the…

Cellphones And Driving

Cellphones And Driving

The new distracted driver law went into effect on Tuesday. Here it is basically: Using your cellphone or other mobile device, you can still look up contact information, use voice commands, view GPS or navigation coordinates and talk on the phone while driving. Yes, you can hold the phone up to your face when you talk!…

Tell Mom You Love Her!!

Tell Mom You Love Her!!

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11. Make sure you tell mom how much you love her. She won’t always be around. She’s pretty special, so make her feel special. A little history on Mother’s Day. It started here in the U.S. back in the 1800′s. Some say it was started by Julia Ward Howe who called…
