Sounds of the Wild

A mother was reading a book about animals to her 3 year old daughter.
Mother: "What does the cow say?"
Child: "Moo!"
Mother: "Great! What does the cat say?"
Child: "Meow".
Mother: "Oh, you're so smart! What does the frog say?"
And this wide-eyed little 3 year-old looked up at her mother and in her deepest voice replied, "Bud."

Packing light

Guest post written by Charlotte Henries

I have quite a big problem. I have way too many clothes and shoes, so packing for trips can be really tough. There have been several times when I've gone somewhere with a carry on bag and then once I go through airport security they tell me it's too big so I have to have to end up paying to check it because I bought too much stuff and tried to pack it into the same small suitcase.

But I'm hoping those days are gone. After taking weekend trips where I have to do that too many times, I've bought some new luggage off of clear 4G Internet that can supposedly fit more stuff in it.

I thought that in combination with that I would for sure be able to do some light packing and end up having to pay a whole lot less for my luggage.

I'm going to visit one of my friends out in San Diego in a few weeks so I'm going to try out my new packing ideas soon. Let's just hope I can do it and save some money on checking bags.

That's What She Said!

Thanks for the article from Glenda Hanson

I love The Office. It is the best show on television. I look forward to Thursdays at 9 pm so that I can catch an all new episode of The Office on direct tv in jacksonville! The show's re-runs are ok too, and I have seen most of them but still enjoy the humor, regardless of how many times I have seen the same episode.

Michael Scott, who plays the worlds worst boss on the show, is a riot and shares many similarities with bosses that I've encountered in my day. Fortunately, I have not had a boss that encompasses all of Michaels, um... "qualities" in a single person. But he is so entertaining to watch! His attempts at humor include incorporating "That's What She Said" into any conversation, among other failed humor attempts.

Dwight Schrute is probably my second favorite character. He plays a nerd who is oblivious to how nerdy he is. He does the most inappropriate things, and other characters can mock him without him catching onto their stunts. The writers who created his character are brilliant.

Jim and Pam, the only sane couple of characters on the show, are a riot. They are the ones to which I can relate best, and they poke fun at all of the quirks of their co-workers on the show.

If you do not already watch this show, start immediately. It will not disappoint.
