Super Bowl Shuffle!

Since we’re super bowl bound, I was thinking about the first year that I really started watching super bowls. I was always a football fan…even had a sports broadcasting class at UT Knoxville, where a big grade came from doing a research paper on the Super Bowl in 1983, but in 1985, The Chicago Bears […]

Phoenix Super Bowl Bound!!!

Yes, we have tickets to the Super Bowl! Although the Titans aren’t there, and never really had a chance to be this year, the Patriots are (instead of the Colts-yeah, baby!), and J and I are so excited. I’ve been to one other Super Bowl…when the Titans played the Rams, and lost by inches. I […]

Heart of the Game

We just had a basketball pizza/movie night for H’s basketball team. It’s a great bunch of girls. Mostly 7th graders, and 3 8th graders. They have a huge game on the road tomorrow against a team that is 17-0. We played them at the beginning of the season and only lost by 5, so they’re […]

Running again…I hope

Text Messaging Language

WU?NMU?JCHEY, DUHAB?NNY? URSS!THX…WAYN?@MALL. WFU!BRT…CUL8TR! Having a teenager in the house has introduced me to the gibberish above, but I still have to look up some of the acronyms that they use like a second language. I wish French or Spanish came as easily to them as this language does! Here’s a link to a website […]

ID Theft Plan alternatives

I got a comment on my previous post from someone in Davidson County who said he signed he and his wife up for LifeLock at $10/per person/per month, because of their restoration services. That is $240/month. Here is my reply to him: You should also check out Zander Insurance’s ID Theft Plan. Their plan also […]
