Sometimes You Just Wanna…….

Sometimes You Just Wanna.......

So…..here you are at a local musical theatre presentation (which you paid good money for the admission….) and during the LIVE on-stage performance of some incredibly talented local artists you suddenly hear some MUSIC playing behind you…….and then you groan and think to yourself…….”are you kidding me??!!”. Yes, someone in the audience forgot to silence…

Is Your Plate Full Too?

Is Your Plate Full Too?

I’m wondering if we have enough on our plates lately. Life seems to be coming at us at lightning speed. Not only do we have to keep our jobs, pay our bills, feed our families, and raise our kids, but now we have to think about the threat of ISIS, Ebola, Enterovirus, and the ever-shrinking…

Best Tacos in Southern Utah?

Best Tacos in Southern Utah?

We all have our favorite places to eat, whether it be fast food or sit-down restaurants. What’s interesting to me is the fact that, at least with me anyway, is that I go to certain places to eat certain entrees. For example, if it’s tacos, I gotta get the taco supremes from Taco Bell. You know the ones…

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…
