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…

How to Become a Blue Angel!

How to Become a Blue Angel!

(Buckner) We are a little over a week away from THUNDER OVER UTAH and I found myself wondering “What does it take to become a Blue Angel??” But first some background. In 1946 Admiral Chester Nimitiz ordered the formation of a flight exhibition team to boost Navy morale,  and maintain public interest in naval aviation. This…

Who Loves Camping!?!

Who Loves Camping!?!

(Buckner) I feel like in 2014 the art of camping is being lost. Not because of a shortage of places to explore, or equipment that makes seeing nature easier and safer than ever before. No….I think its….ourselves. So lets try to do our best to put down our smartphones (I’m as guilty as the next…

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…

Independence day…Lets blow stuff up!!!!

Independence day...Lets blow stuff up!!!!

(Buckner) Since I can remember, the Fourth of July has been pretty close to the top of the holiday charts. Family, Friends, BBQ, BLOWING UP FIREWORKS, Whats not to love! My taste in fireworks has changed over the years. I used to gravitate toward the loud explosion ones, the m1000′s, black cats, and ROMAN CANDLES!!!!…

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…

Going to the lake….the right way!!!

Going to the lake....the right way!!!

(Buckner) It’s that time of the year that everyone is heading to the lake! Boats of all shapes and sizes are heading to the nearest bodies of water to have a good time! Having not grown up in a family that had watercraft, I’ve had to learn proper lake etiquette as I go. Here are…

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…

The World Cup….Its Just begun!

The World Cup....Its Just begun!

  (Buckner) After Monday’s World Cups soccer victory in game one for team USA, its pretty easy to see our country is on board to watch some……SOCCER!!!!  This apparently is nothing new for the state of Utah.   Has been a powerhouse since their introduction to the MLS back in 2004. Two players from Real…

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…
