Its pretty obvious that I am not a huge sports fan. I do however support local teams and teams that do things right....like the WSU Cougs are!!
And altho they are having a great year, thats not what I mean. I just read an article on Yard Barker.com about the AD of WSU and how he is backing the coach Leach....big time.
Last year was coach Leach's first year and it wasn't so hot for the football team.( but it was his first year coaching a team that was there before him...not his full plan in place just yet....) But the AD Bill Moos said he got a ton of angry nasty emails about hiring the coach and the future of the football team.
Moos....kept those names of those angry and against the team in a special file. NBT. That means...No Bowl Tickets.
Yep. Even last year Moos had faith in his coach and the team.
And this year, the team could be eligible for a Bowl Game..the first since 2006.
But guess what? Those who ranted and raved against the coach and team....won't be getting tickets if Moos has anything to do with it!!
He has said that those tickets only go to those who support the team and the school, not those who are looking to jump on the train late in the game....he said the train has already left the station.
Now sports is always about peoples opinion and team actions and such...thats why sports talk radio is alive! But there is a distinction between talking about team and ranting and railing against it.
And Bill Moos knows that line. And the people who have crossed it.
I get it. I can totally see both sides of the whole Black Friday suddenly starting earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving day. I can see why retailers are wanting to open ( if people are out shopping, only makes sense to be open too) and also that all stores should be closed so that all families can be together for the holiday.
Thats kind of the point of this particular Holiday! :)
But now its almost like you don't want to let people know which side you are on or which side you will do??
I noticed on FB this morning that people are posting things about not shopping on that day, if you do you are part of the problem, right next to ads all about what great deals will be available.
Honestly, I think you will do whatever you want to do...whatever is right for you to do.
Then I think you should just not tell anyone on FB about it! :) Wish them a Happy Turkey day and be done!
We ( read the Hubby) isn't real big on putting christmas lights on the house!( its a lot of work!) So this feat is all the more impressive to me!!
A family has reclaimed their record breaking amount of christmas lights! ( and light bill I would imagine too!)
I love food scented candles. Ok, usually the sweets, like vanilla or apples and spice or pumpkin spice those kinds of candles.
Never a big fan of the floral ones. Guess I just like to have the smell of good food in my house ( because a candle is the only way thats going to happen!!!)
But this one takes it! Nope, not bacon. Its Fried Chicken!!
Seriously, someone made a candle that smells like Fried Chicken. The lady who makes them actually cooks the chicken in the wax...so its legit.
THe Chicken Fried Candle is from Kentucky!!
You gotta meet George!! He is part of Celtic Thunder coming to Northern Quest the 29 and 30 and is amazing and fun!
If you aren't familiar with Celtic Thunder....check them out on YouTube and you will be as excited as I was!
I had the chance to talk to George himself and as you will hear, he is truly Scottish and sometimes hard to understand but still worth a listen!
Thanks to Tommy Two Tone, its probably the first phone number you ever were able to remember.... 867-5309!! The song was really popular years ago and at that time if you called it you would hear a recording of "jenny" answering the phone.
But what about now??
Well, now you will hear Carrie ( who lives in Florida) answering HER phone. Carrie was one of those people who called the number years ago when the song was hot...and recently she wondered what would happen if she called it again.
So she did.
Only to find out that Jenny no longer answered....no one did. It was available.
So she called the phone company and convinced them to switch her current phone to THOSE digits.
Do people still call that number wondering if Jenny will answer? Yes! She says she can get up to 50 calls a day...and she LOVES it!
She said that she loves her phone number and won't give it up for anything....altho...she does note that the number had been sold on ebay about 7 years ago for $5 thousand dollars. She said that maybe that much money could make her give it up....maybe!!!
So do you do it? Them?? Do you take selfies?
I am asking because its now been recognized by the official dictionary as a real word, a real thing. And its defined as taking your own picture and uploading it to social media.
Funny tho, I have friends that do take a ton of selfies and put them on Facebook. Its nice to be able to see them as our daily lives don't afford me that chance.
But....I still haven't done it! Nope. Not a huge fan of getting the old pict taken right now....so...not something I think of, taking one of myself.
Now my girls picts? Oh yeah! Things we see and do? Definately. ME....not yet!!! :)
But I would guess that in the next year....I will join the Selfie group. Maybe!!!
It was Saturday, not sure the station, but I saw it!! The commercial that runs every year to let me know the holidays have begun!
The Hershey "bells" commercial!
You know the one, where they have Hershey Kisses ringing we wish you a merry christmas for 30seconds.
I love it.
No, I don't know why, but I do and when I see it, THATS when I know the holidays have begun!
I am ready! Ok, I am starting to get ready! I even started in on the Christmas list of gifts and ideas this year.
But ONLY after I saw that commercial!!
At my house, when I can see the back of the fridge, it means its time to go shopping for more food!! But its also useful, as in I can find those items at the back and check them for expiration dates. Sounds disgusting I know, but really...we all do it.
Stuff just gets lost back there. Especially if you have a hubby and kids! Instead of putting items back where they go...they get shoved to the back, covered up by other things not to be seen again until its too late.
I would guess! So then today is that day. Check those bottles, cartons and plastic containers. And get ready to toss, toss, toss. This is perfect for me, as tomorrow is shopping day anyways. And i can buy more plastic containers to replace the ones I am tossing today! Trust me....there will be tossing. And probably shaking my head and uttering not the nicest of words. All in the name of the clean fridge...and not rotten food!
