Midweek Tidbits

* I'm due to do a tidbits BLOG, maybe I should make this one it.

* If you are not doing anything this afternoon and want something memorable to do, go to the Coliseum (Gates open at 3:30) to send off our West Virginia University Mountaineer Basketball team as it sets off for Indianapolis to play in the Final 4 and try to return with a National Championship. Give coach Huggins and this team the love they have earned if you have the time.

* I guess it is pretty sad when you have to learn about what is going on within your own family on Facebook. However my sister Kim had Oral Surgery yesterday morning. I tried calling yesterday morning, but realized the timing might not be right as she was probably in surgery.

* We're continuing getting ready for Saturday, it's calling for 81 degrees and sunny so hopefully everyone can have a great time and create a few memories. Michelle has been busting her butt trying to pull this off.

* 747 days since Michelle and I had our first date. Just in case anyone was wondering.

* 269 Shopping days left until Christmas.

* This is Blog post 1,940 for me. I should top 2,000 posts sometime in the near future. It's amazing the information and the history you create about yourself and the events around you simply by doing the following:

  1. Start a BLOG
  2. Write in the blog on a consistant basis
  3. Keep that blog going. Every time you stop or change it, you lose a piece of your own history.
  4. Make it your own


* Everyone have a great day, and Mom, put down the midget porn.

Easter Egg Coloring

Your Tuesdays Tidbits has been temporarily replaced this week for the Easter Egg Coloring that we did last night. Tidbits will be another day.

I can't remember how long it has been since I colored Easter Eggs, it's been years since I did it or had anything to do with it. That streak ended last night however when we colored eggs and started stuffing plastic eggs for the East Egg hunt this Saturday.

Chad and Laiah, Chad's girlfriend had a blast coloring and decorating the eggs as Michelle and I worked at filling the plastic eggs. It was a great evening and a lot of fun. it was nice working in teams of two to get a lot of things done that we needed to finish by this weekend.

Great evening, but now it's Hi Ho Hi Ho....

Second Post Op Followup

I have a second post op follow up this morning from my cataract surgery ten days ago. Eye is doing great and everything is just peachy keen, just a follow up.

It rained all day yesterday and that made it a "Take a Nap" kind of a day and that is exactly what we did yesterday afternoon. With such an irregular sleep pattern this weekend due to running Hayley to the Airport and the excitement from the post game celebration. it was nice to curl up next to my sweetie on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

We have some eggs to color and need to start putting things together for the Easter Egg hunt this weekend.

MSNsportsNET.Com -- West Virginia University Mountaineers

MSNsportsNET.Com -- West Virginia University Mountaineers


Final 4

Man what a day yesterday was. It started out with us taking Hayley to the airport, we she has arrived safely in Alabama, and turned out to be a trip to the Grove City Outlets.

That wasn't the big news of the day. The big news came with WVU playing a basketball team against a team I had picked to win it all. A team with 4 projected Lottery Picks in this years upcoming NBA draft, three of them are Freshmen, including everyone's top pick John Wall. Had we been beaten by this team of future Millionaires that includes possibly a couple more NBA players also on the roster, I don't think anyone would have been too surprised.

However this Mountaineer basketball team is different that any team I have seen before them. They have been in the top 10 all year, but when selection Sunday came and they bids were announced and we were not given a #1 seed, you could just tell by the looks on their faces they were not happy. They had earned it, yet they were denied that seed. To make matters worse, they put us in a bracket that with a team that I had winning it all which was Kentucky.

I guess there is a reason I am a Geographer and not a sports analyst. West Virginia playing without Truck Bryant our starting Point Guard, re-introduced the nation to Joe Mazulla and brought him center stage.

The Mountaineers beat East Region #1 seed Kentucky 73-66 to claim the East Regional Championship and advance to the Final 4 for the first time since 1959 when Jerry West led us to the Championship game.

Next up for the Mountaineers, the winner of todays South Region game between #1 seed Duke and #3 seed Baylor. Anyone remember the last time WVU and Duke played? We will play the Final 4 Semi-Finals next Saturday evening. Rumor has it Truck Bryant, who had a season ending injury, has a screw in his foot and just may be ready to go.

After the game Michelle and I drove around down town a couple of times, blowing the car horn and yelping it up. I would have loved to have met the team on its return, if they came back today, but they have already returned early this morning to a crowd of people waiting at the Coliseum. I would have loved to have been there, but it was a long day.

Word has it the team will leave for Indianapolis Wed.

Four down, two go.

Hayley off to Alabama

Michelle and I will be taking a trip to Pittsburgh this morning and today, specifically to the Pittsburgh International Airport. Hayley started her spring break yesterday and will be flying to Alabama today to go see her boyfriend Phil.

Michelle and I will be using the day for a few other things as well, we are going to stop in and see a few of her family members and pay a visit to them. We're also wanting to head to stop by Tanger Outlets to do a little shopping and maybe getting a chance to see Nasrin and possibly do lunch or dinner.

It should be a fun filled day.

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

It looks like Michelle and I will be doing a little bit of running around this weekend, we'll be helping Hayley getting ready tonight as she will start her Spring Break. Tomorrow morning she'll be all packed up and we're going to take her to the Pittsburgh Airport for a 10:00 AM flight to Alabama to see her boyfriend who attends the University of Auburn. She'll return next week.

Speaking of Spring Break, traffic should be reduced dramatically over the next seven or eight days due to the WVU students also being on Spring Break next week and today being their last day of classes.

Could some PA geocaches be in the works for tomorrow? Strong possibility.

Let's get this Friday started.

Elite 8

The WVU Men's basketball team set a school record for victories tonight as they beat the Washington Huskies 69-56 to run their record to 30-6 on the year and advance to the Elite 7 for the second time in six seasons.

We will play Saturday for a chance to advance to the Final 4 for the first time since 1959.

Congrats guys, three to go.

Let's Do This

Well we have once again made it to the Sweet 16. We play the Washington Huskies tonight at 7:30 on ESPN for a chance to advance to the Elite 8 on Saturday.

West Virginia will have to play the rest of the 2010 season without starting Point Guard Darryl "Truck" Bryant as he is now out for the rest of the season with a broken foot. I think we will be OK, we still have Joe Mazzulla who was the starter last season before getting hurt. He's had a slow recovery from shoulder surgery and now appears to be 100% over the last 5 or 6 games that we have played.

The Mountaineers will be looking for the school record 30th season victory tonight, surpassing the 1959 NCAA Championship Game team's record of 29-5. We are currently 29-6.

On a special side note the WVU Womens team who also set a school record for wins with a 29-6 final record.

Let's Goooo Mountaineers.

It's Softball !!!!!!!!!

Just got the first official call of the year from Coach, the 2010 softball team now needs to re-assemble from the winter break and start to get ready for a new season.

Once again we will be sponsored by MiHaley's as we were last year. And so far it looks like everyone with the exception of one player who blew his knee out will be returning this season. Our 3rd basemen Ryno was supposed to move back home after he graduated, but it looks like he is still here and will be here for the summer.

I'm ready to hit the field and spend the summer with the greatest group of guys you would ever want to be associated with.

Hump Day

OK, that's two down, one to go over the hump and two to go until the weekend. We're getting there.

We've had a couple of days of rain, we should have a couple more days of rain but today is calling for it to be sunny. I don;t know if that is will be accurate, but we know there will be no snowfall accumulation for today in the Morgantown area.

Michelle was a little under the weather yesterday evening and went and laid down early, hopefully today she will be chipper and feeling much better and ready to face the world.

Hi Ho Hi Ho.....

Tuesdays Tidbits

Well it's Tuesday, and I can't find a better reason to do a tidbits that that.

* There was a little bit of hometown sadness yesterday when local bar owner Charlie Kosten, the owner of Crocketts Lodge, died in a home fire early yesterday morning. Crocketts is one of Morgantown's oldest "Happening" taverns in town. It has been in operation fro 27 years.

* If you are keeping count, this is day 739 of my life with Michelle. Each and everyone of them have been very memorable and some of the best days of my life.

* While we are keeping track, 277 Shopping days till Christmas.

* Michelle and I will be taking Hayley to the Pittsburgh Airport Saturday morning. She is going to fly down to see her boyfriend Phil in Alabama during spring break. I know she has been counting down the days.

* Not much else to say, I did enjoy the nice weather we had yesterday as Michelle and I took Sadie out for a nice walk on the rails to trails.

Sweet 16!!!!!


Woo Hoo!!!! I Hate Mondays, but this one is a lot more bearable as the WVU Mountaineers defeated Missouri 68-59 yesterday afternoon advance to the Sweet 16 for the fourth time in the past six seasons. DeSean Butler wasn't ready for his WVU career to be over with just yet and was the man once again by pouring in 28 points in the Mountaineer win.

The team will return to action this week against the Washington Huskies on Thursday at 7:30 PM. We will be in semi-familiar grounds as the next round for us will be played at the Home Court of fellow Big East member and regular season Champion Syracuse.

WVU and Syracuse are the only two Big East teams to survive the first two rounds of the tournament. 48 teams have went home, but WVU and Syracuse are not in that group.

I guess this makes today a little more bearable. Hi Ho Hi Ho

Sunday Morning

I sit here this early Sunday morning trying to rack my brain in all of this silence with a few thoughts rambling through my head.

My NCAA Basketball bracket is blown up for this year. It was bad enough when one of my Final 4 teams didn't even make it to the Sweet 16 and an Elite 8 team losing in the first round, now Kansas a team I had in the National Championship game loses last night and just completely blows my bracket apart. All the brackets look good when you pick them, but you have to account for the unaccountable and hope the teams you picked don't tank early.

The Mountaineers play this afternoon against Missouri. The winner of this game advances to the Sweet 16 to tale on the 10th seeded Washington Huskies. Hopefully we can put together a god 40 minutes of basketball today and advance to the Sweet 15 for the 4th in the last six seasons.

Weather is going to be awesome today, put down the computer, get outside and enjoy the springtime.

HAPPY SPRING!!!!!!!




In can't believe that I missed this, today is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!!!!!!


Winter's outta here.

Gecaching

OK< I suffer from GDS (Geocaching Deficiency Syndrome) and need to get out and get the first caches of the year today. The weather is going to be nice and beautiful, almost too nice to be sitting inside the house and I can't think of a better thing to do on such a nice day.

I got the GPS all ready to go a couple of days ago, I reinstalled the drivers that I needed and will put a fresh set of batteries in this morning. Now it is just a matter of deciding just where we want to go look for them. I'm thinking about picking up some of the new ones around Morgantown for our first official time out. I still have a travel bug in my inventory that I need to get rid of and a cache that I have set up and ready to go that I need to get placed this season.

Temps in the upper 60's and 70's, I love it!!!!!

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Well it's March Madness time and the Mountaineers will play today at 12:15. Would you believe with me returning to work that I actually have a meeting scheduled at 12:00. Anyone want to bet it will be a short meeting, I'm just thankful that all I have to do is call in.

I'm doing fine, some slight headaches with the new interocular lens implanted in my eye. My head is still adjusting, so it will go away soon and life will return to normal for me.

Can't start the weekend until I finish Friday, so Hi ho hi ho

Happy Birthday Amy

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my beautiful niece a very Happy Birthday today.

If I am not mistaken, and I am on occasion she is turning 24 today. She is now three years older than me, since I stopped aging at 21 and now celebrate anniversaries of birthdays.

Anyways, to Amy, I would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday today. May you be surrounded by the people you love and have a great day.

AAAAARRRRRRRR

Ahoy Matey's, Captain George here about to set sail to parts unknown. Actually that is a picture of me right before I was released from the Hospital yesterday from my surgery.

I have been told it is one of the easiest surgeries you will ever go through and I think I have to agree. Of course I was a little bit nervous knowing they were going to work on my eye while I was wide awake, but the procedure was quick, simple and painless. I was curious if I could see anything while they operated on it, well the answer to that question is basically no. I could see everything out of my left eye, but it was covered.

My surgery was scheduled for 11:15, but they had me going in about 20 minutes after 10 and once I got back to my area and Michelle got back to me in recovery it was 11:20. I have to wear this patch until 8:00 when I go to see my doctor and have it removed. My guess is he is going to dilate it again and take a good look at it once again. I'm anxious to be able to see again out of that eye. I was blind as a bat, I could make out shapes but that was about it.

Ironically Mom is also going in today to have surgery on her second eye. She had her first procedure done a few weeks back and this surgery couldn't come quick enough for her. She said it was a major improvement and looks forward to having the other rye fixed today.

Everything is good, the operation went well and I am recovering nicely. Thanks to Michelle for being by my side through this whole procedure.

Hump Day Surgery

Well today is the big day, the day of my Cataract Surgery. I need to be at the Hospital by 9:15 and am scheduled for surgery at 11:15 AM this morning. No food after 1:00 this morning until I get out of surgery and recover.

Mom had one eye done a few weeks back and will have her other eye done tomorrow, now if they can just do something for her hearing and obsession with midget porn...LOL

Michelle will be with me and I'm sure she'll keep everyone updated as to how I am doing. I'll be off work the next day too with a follow up appointment to have the patch removed.

Hope everything goes well today and am glad I get a surgeon still sober in the morning of St. Patricks Day.

Oh, HAPPY St. PATRICKS day, remember to wear green.

Tuesdays Tidbits

* It's Tuesday and I can't think of a better reason to do a tidbits, so I think I'll do a tidbits for today.

* I'll get my call sometime this afternoon to let me know at what time I am going to have my surgery tomorrow. They are going to remove a cataract and p;ace in a new lens. I'm hoping it has X-Ray Vision in that lens. -)

* The Mountaineer men's team didn't get the #1 seed, but they do have a #2 seed. They will play Friday at 12:15 in the afternoon to start their tournament. We are in the same bracket as Kentucky, who I have winning it all, but the team looked disrespected Sunday night when their bid was announced.

* Michelle and I will be having an Easter Egg Hunt on April 3rd here. Something small for the kiddies. Some place they can go and be safe and have a good time.

* 732 marvelous days since the love of my life and I went on our first date. 10,000 BC stunk as a movie, but I can't complain because I got her.

* 284 Shopping days until Christmas.

* The WVU Women were issued a #3 seed in the Memphis bracket last night and will begin their tournament this weekend.

Two Years Ago Today

Two years ago today was a day that has changed my life forever. It all started one evening and going to see the movie 10,000 BC and it turned out two years later with me living with the absolute love of my life.

To Michelle,

I love you sweetheart and consider myself a very lucky man. You are my best friend and I love you from the very bottom of my heart. Thank You for coming back into my life, thank you for everything you do for me and thank you for saving me from a life full of solitude and loneliness. I love you.

Happy Second Anniversary.

Spring Forward

Well if you are reading this and you have manual clocks that you didn't spring forward, you're late.

If you live in an area that observes Daylight Savings Time, then this is the day when we say goodbye to short days and hello to more daylight in the evenings. The first real sign that winter is on its way out and spring is coming.

Yes we may still get a little bit of snow from here on out, mine is mostly melted, but being that much closer to spring time makes it just a little more bearable if we do get hit with any more.

Have I ever mentioned I hate snow?

Saturday, March 13, 2010

BIG EAST CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!


WVU Men's basketball, the 2010 Big East Champions!!!!! 60-58 and the Butler did it again.

4th overall RPI rating, 3rd overall Strength of Schedule and Big East Tournament Champions. Now the selection committee has to take our automatic bid, look at the RPI and Strength of Schedule, our ranking and the championship and give us the #1 seed that we have EARNED!!!!!!

Update on Josh Judy

As I have noted in this blog on numerous occasions about an old softball team mate of mine named Josh Judy. From his initial signing a college offer at Indiana Tech to a number of other incidents and updates through college where he made All-American to him being drafted and slowly working his way up the roster. He is in Spring Training with the Major League Club and got to pitch for the first time yesterday in a 7-7 game against the California Angels.

He has pitched against the Major League teams when he was with some of the minor league teams in spring training, but this is the first time Josh has taken the mound as a Major League Pitcher with the Cleveland Indians.

He pitched 2 inning and struck out one batter in his inning that no one reached base.

Congrats Josh. I knew years ago that there was something special about how you could throw a baseball. Maybe I saw it when you were 14, but this only validates it.

This is one former team mate who is very proud to have taken the field with you.

Mountaineers are in Big East Finals

Even thought I snoozed through last night's game, the West Virginia Mountaineer Men's Basketball team repeated what the women's team did and made it to the conference Championship Game.

The men won last night beating Notre Shame 53-51 in the semi-finals. Tonight they will take on Georgetown tonight at 9:00 in Madison Square Garden for the Big East Championship for the second time since joining the Big East.\

IF and that is a big IF we would happen to win tonight and win the Championship, when the seedings come out tomorrow the Mountaineers have an outside shot at being a #1 seed for the NCAA tournament. At worst even if we lose I think being ranked #6 in the Coaches and #7 in the AP will give us a #2 seed when the pairings come out tomorrow night.

Make plans either way tomorrow morning or afternoon to welcome the team back to Morgantown, it's a lot of fun and it is inspiration to the team.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Hey baseball fans, the Mountaineer Baseball team is starting a four game home stand tonight at Hawley Field. With more nice weather coming our way, this could easily be something to do if that is what you are seeking.

Softball season is starting to get a little bit closer. BOPARC has their packets out already to download. Rosters and Forfeit fee need to be in by April 14, and league fees need to be in by April 19th. Hopefully Michael will sponsor us again this year and we can be MiHaley's once again.

Great Dinner

Went out to dinner this evening with Abdul, Farida and Nasrin as she stopped into town on business. I haven't seen Nas in a few years and it was great to sit down and catch up with her. I think Facebook app buddies Nas and Michelle hit it off and it was a great dinner at Mother India.

It's been a long day and I'm about ready to watch a little bit of basketball and hit the hay for the evening.

A sincere thank you to Nasin for making this evening a reality.

Geocaching

A few years ago I started to get into the hobby of Geocaching. The next year I got Michelle and Hayley involved and to date we have 100 current finds and one hide.

This will be our third season together caching, and my fourth even though I only did one that first year. It's an activity that has gotten me out and allowed me to enjoy life a little and challenge our abilities at reading a GPS, solving a puzzle and finding the cache.

Just in Morgantown there are a number of caches, many of which Michelle and have not gotten yet. There have been quite a few added since we hung it up for the year last fall.

The weather is getting nicer, the snow is melting and it's time to start doing outdoor things. I think my geocaching season is very close to starting for 2010. Hopefully I can get one in before my surgery next week =)

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Hump Day

Woo Hoo, Monday and Tuesday are behind us and we are over the hump today looking to another weekend coming up.

Michelle went and got a new phone last night, I guess it was time for her to change in her old one and get a new one. It's one of those slider type phones with a full qwerty keyboard for texting.

Hats off to the WVU Women last night, losing the Big east Championship to the #1 ranked and defending National Champions UCONN Huskies. This is our 5th loss of the year and we have lost to the #1 team twice and the #3 and #4 ranked teams and a late game meltdown to an unranked Syracuse team account for the five losses. UCONN now has a 72 game winning streak.

It's actually going to be in the 60's today, more signs that winter is behind us. We'll spring our clocks forward this Sunday morning, so expect a little bit of a shorter weekend and more daylight time.

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Tuesdays Tidbits

* The final regular season Men's basketball polls are out, WVU ended up 6th and 7th respectively. There will be one more poll this season, and that will come at the seasons end when the Tournaments are completed.

* 725 days for me and Michelle. That is how long it has been since I drug her out to see `10,000 BC. Man was that a horrible movie...LOL

* For those of you counting, 291 days till Christmas, so get with the shopping.

* We bought a Juicer this weekend. We found one for Mom so we decided to go get one for ourselves. It's amazing ow much juice comes out of some things.

* Today is supposed to be the first home WVU Baseball game of the season, however the game has already been postponed. They will be at home this weekend and the weather is looking good. Anyone ever been to a WVU baseball game? Take one in if you never have, they are a blast.

* Keeping an eye on my old team mate, Josh Judy is with the Cleveland Indians major league team this spring, he might make the 40 man roster by this fall. He hasn't thrown in any of the spring games as of yet, but I am watching.

* Wow, a couple of baseball posts, could softball be very far off?

* Hi Ho Hi Ho....

I hate you Monday

I hate you Monday, why do you always have to follow my weekend? Couldn't we start the workweek with say....FRIDAY!!!!!! Six day weekends would be awesome, but no you have to show up and we all have to go back to the grindstone. Thanks a lot Monday.

Well we never did make it to any geocaches this pasty weekend. Amy and Val invited Michelle to go to Tanger Outlets yesterday to do a little bit of shopping after we had finished grocery shopping. She came home and said that she had a great time with the girls. She got some new clothes and they all went out to lunch at the Ponderosa Steak House in Washington.

It was a nice weekend, hopefully the weather will continue to get better and better and Phil's prediction on February 2nd will come to pass and we will invite spring into our lives. I can already hear the birds a chirping. Is it Softball yet?

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Sunday

Here I sit in a quite home, everyone is sleeping and only me who went to bed very early yesterday is up at the crack of dawn.

Auction went pretty well yesterday, Michelle and I showed up and there were a few surprises. A lot of glassware at this auction, so much that one might even buy the lots and try to sell them on ebay individually, but I'll let someone else try that.

Not too much on our agenda today, grocery shopping will be one of the first things we do today. Other than that nothing is planned.

Saturday, March 06, 2010

Auction Today

Jim Paugh, Michelle's brother in law, will be holding his monthly auction today at 1:00 at the Blue Horizon Flea market. Jim will have many items up for auction today so if you get a chance, swing on over and check out what he has up for auction and see if you can wrangle yourself a nice deal or two.

Weather is supposed to be in the 40's today, so get out and enjoy yourselves. I am looking at the extended forecast and they are calling for a high of 57 on Tuesday.

Get out of the house, solve the cabin fever and come on over to the auction.

Friday, March 05, 2010

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Michelle went back to see her doctor on a followup after her surgery and she is now cancer free. They got it all and have removed the stitches and she is healing up just fine.

I do have to say that I like this Friday's weather more than I like last Fridays. No new snow and temps high enough to melt the stuff that has been on the ground all winter. Maybe we should have a "Sign of Spring" party!!!! Wooo Hoo!!!!

Alright sports fans, the Men's basketball team plays tomorrow at noon, but this game will be at Villanova as we close the regular season out and get ready for Big East Tournament play. The Women's team starts the Big East tournament today, although like the men they have Bye's in the first two rounds and will not start playing until the third round which will be Sunday afternoon. Women's Gymnastics will be at Home tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 and the Men's Wrestling team will host the EWL Championships on Sunday starting at 10:00 AM.

Enjoy your Friday, you've earned it and made it.

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Anyone Ready for a Warm Weekend?

I know I am loooong overdue in enjoying a warm weather weekend and this weekend looks like it might just be that, a warmer weather weekend.

Temps should be in the mid to upper 40's here, meaning that snow will be melting away even more and we can get out and enjoy ourselves a little more.

Never know might even be a good weekend to look for our first geocache of the season. We had a lot of work done to the car with new tires, new starter, new brakes and repairing a few minor issues that it might be time to stretch our legs a little and get out and about.

P&P Auctions is having their monthly auction scheduled this Saturday if anyone is interested. It's a nice day to have an auction, nice weather and I'm sure you can find a deal or two.

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Hump Day

You know, every once in a while you get a little bit of writers block, today is one of those days.

Today however I have a little bit of something to fall back on, plus I just saw this video and thought it was uber cool.

Great job Kevin and the rest of the guys at WVAQ.

Morgantown State of Mind

Tuesdays Tidbits

* News Flash. I have a big announcement to make, I HATE SNOW!!!. That is all, now back to your regularly scheduled BLOG.

* It's Tuesday, and it's time for a tidbits.

* If anyone is tired of Cable TV, my brother in law Nick would love to sell you a satellite system. They offer some nice packages, so if you are thinking of switching, this might be a place to look.

* Day 718 since mine and Michelle's first date. I have to say these have been 718 magical days filled with highs and lows, good times and bad. We're still together and going stronger than ever, I am one lucky guy.

* Had some minor car problems last night, our starter froze up and wouldn't start the car. Banged it with a metal rod and it started. It's about time to change the starter.

* 298 shopping days till Christmas. Can I safely assume no one is finished yet?

* We went to Applebees last night for dinner after my Dr's appointment. I'm surprised we don't eat there more often.

* have I mentioned that I hate snow?

* Mountaineer basketball team played their last home game of the season last night. Ranked 8th in the country and the Big East tournament coming up, there is no chance they won't make the NCAA tournament this season meaning they are done at home this season.

* Hi Ho Hi Ho....

Ugly Monday

Oh well, since we are there it is back to work and a Doctors appointment this afternoon for me. This is a regularly scheduled visit, but a required visit that I have to do prior to my surgery. Unfortunately this or the next time will be the last time I see Dr. Feathers as he is going to he going to South Carolina to specialize in Sports Medicine. I'll probably have a new Dr come this July.

Did anyone watch the Gold Medal Hockey game yesterday, how do you have one of your favorite players from your favorite team rip your heart out and win the Gold Medal for his country.

Pittsburgh Penguin Sidney Crosby ended the game giving Canada the gold medal with his overtime goal.

Oh well, Hi Ho Hi Ho....
