Duck Call Dynasty

Posted by Rebekka Quinn on 2/26/2014
Hi Everyone, Well, we finally were snowed in long enough to catch an episode of Duck Dynasty. All our friends have been watching for two seasons and I don't know what planet we've been on, but we have totally missed this show. We are not big reality TV fans, mostly because the supposed real-life drama is all scripted and, well, real people aren't actors.

Dear Friends, We've found that you can never start too soon to teach your kids the value of organizing and being on time for appointments. With our own Tucker who is now in kindergarten, we have learned that we don't get to control his entire daily schedule any more. There are so many school activities, days off, after school programs that we want him to participate in...and the list goes on.

Puzzle Solved

Hi Everyone, We are going crazy with all the snow and super cold weather we have had this winter. Tucker has been stuck inside for days on end with the school closings and icy conditions outside. I have almost run out of things for him to do on a daily basis that are fun and will keep him occupied and away from video games.

President's Day

Hi Friends, Today is President's Day. Your kids are most likely home from school unless you are taking a long weekend vacation. It really wasn't too long ago that we didn't have a President's Day. We had a holiday for Lincoln's birthday (February 12) and another for Washington's birthday (which is February 22). Along the way these two holidays were combined into the ubiquitous President's Day which is a mid-February Monday.

Star Light

Hi Friends, Today, Australian astronomers identified the oldest star in the universe. At some 13.6 billion years old it is not only the oldest star ever discovered, but it is almost as old as the universe itself. It is just mind-boggling to think of something that is that old and having the technology to be able to assign an age to it. The pictures are absolutely amazing.

Hello Everyone, Well the Sochi Olympics are underway. I had no idea that it was so beautiful in that part of Russia. It reminds me so much of how the Rockies look in the winter. Quiet, majestic and just awe-inspiring. It was never a place that was on my "must see" or bucket list, but I could see traveling to that part of Russia as part of a Black Sea cruise one day.

Power Outage

Hi Everyone, Last night we had another ice storm. This one took out the power and phone lines on our block. This winter has certainly been one of extremes - extreme cold, extremely low temperatures, extreme conditions.

Hi Friends, Today is Super Bowl Sunday and we have quite a crowd expected. Half of us are going to be watching the play-by-play action. The other half are interested in the commercials. And everyone is looking forward to my husband's chicken chili.
