Sheboygan's Finest

What a surprise :) Two female twin sisters are caught, by Walgreens photo lab, taking partially nude pictures, with a 5 year old in some of them. This really isn't a surprise when you think about all the fun things there is to read in the local newspaper from that area. Take a look at the story and go ahead and read through some of the posts from the newspapers forum as well. So proud I'm sure the city is. And if I am not mistaken, about 10 years ago, that city was voted by readers digest as the #1 place to raise a child...might have to run that survey again :)

What a nice quote

"With all of the fires, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes and storms ripping across this country today, do you think it's a good time to take God out of the constitution?"

Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? I just read a story in our regional newspaper about a van that was carrying 6 adults to Florida for Spring Break. While traveling down the highway, a tire from a truck going the opposite direction crashed into the vans roof. The impact of the tire killed one passenger and wounded the others in various ways.

It makes me think about the things I do everyday and wonder if by doing my normal routine I will be in the wrong place at the wrong time?

If you are calling about your bill say "yes"...

Anyone else hate these voice activated systems you get when you call up any type of customer service number? You call any customer service number and you get a voice asking you questions that you can only answer by saying words. "Are you calling about your bill?" "Yes" ..... "I'm sorry, I didn't understand that, please answer again" .. "Yes" ..... "I'm sorry I didnt' understand that, please answer again" .. "F*ck you" ..... "Ok, you are calling about your bill"

What the hell is that all about? How retarded, but if you are loving them up just as I am, go ahead and check out the group at, I am thinking of joining myself.

A nice FREE online Magazine

I have an issue with finding ways to become more thrifty or self-reliant, so I am always searching the internet for websites with the best content. I came across BackWoods Home Magazine in a random search for starting an online flower business. I read through a couple of the articles and they seem to be well written and to the point. Most completely instructional and some with pictures. Take a look and see what they have in the FREE article section you might be interested in, otherwise you can get a subscription.

Ahhhhh, daylight saving time

I went to bed lastnight feeling real good about seeing the sun longer. Then I had to wake up this morning to go to work (about 6AM CST) and I had to see that it was still dark outside. It kind of put a damper on the whole situation I was enjoying the day before. I know that in time it will be light out again when I get up for work, it was just the initial sadness to see it dark again.
Winters are so unpredictable in the Midwest and can be way too long, that it is so nice to get away from it as soon as you can. I am sure anyone living in this area can say the same thing. Now I get to look forward to planting flowers and working in the yard. I may post some pictures of my projects even now and again so stay tuned.

Science of Sleep

Have you been able to check this movie out? The title is "The Science of Sleep" and I am not sure what is really going on, but there are some serious undertones in the movie. I think the reviews and comments made here are very close to the way I felt when the movie was over. It's a fun movie to watch, but I think I will have to see it again to be able to catch every little thing that is happening or what they mean. The main character is artistic and stuck in a job he doesn't want. When he sleeps, his dreams come alive and are a large part of the movie. If you want to watch a movie that keeps your mind thinking and has come very funny parts, then I recommend this one for sure!

Storm Picture from July 2006

This is just one of the many pictures I got from a lightening storm that rolled through our area in mid-summer 2006. The picture is taken in my backyard facing south. I used a Kodak digital camera with 8 second shutter delay. No rain that night, just this.
