Large Star

On our trip back to East Otto, we found this large star at Bear Hollow Furniture. And it was a great price too!!! We soon agreed it would look perfect on the back of the house where we don't have any windows on the new addition. And once we put it up, we knew it was the right choice! Don't you agree?

Pepsi Natural

The newest addition to the Pepsi family, is made with all-natural ingredients, including kola nut extract, natural sugar and sparkling water. From the amount of bubbles to the foam that rises to the top of the beverage when it's poured, Pepsi Natural offers a brand-new cola experience. Look for it in cities listed in the ad:

Colors of Spring

This past weekend, Jay and I took advantage of the summer-like weather to spruce up the yard as we do every spring. This would be the 2nd cleaning already, but now its got the new mulch and crisp edging that Jay likes. While he was taking care of that, I walked around snapping some pictures of all the new colors springing up. Every year, I am reminded of how Jackie inspired me with her awesome pics. Mine are nothing like hers, but still a view into some of the colors of spring we have at the Rocks.

Are we really this stupid?

"Obama May Block Sun's Rays to End Global Warming"

I can just imagine the conversation around the table when this came up.
Obama : Guys, its getting really hot out there. We have to do something.
SciGuy : Well we can look into new technologies of how to recycle, reduce, and reuse products better, and continue educating the public on our Green Efforts. Earth Day is coming up.
Obama : No. Something else needs to happen. What about blocking the sun?
SciGuy : You mean, like blocking the entire sun, Mr President?
Obama. No, you geek. I mean, No science guy. Blocking the bad rays from coming to the earth. Lets look into shooting bad particles that hurt us here on earth, back up into the atmosphere and have it reflect the new bad particles away from us.
SciGuy : Rrriiiiiight. We'll get right on that President.

SERIOUSLY?!?!? WTF!!? God knows what would happen if THAT backfired. We'd all have instant tans!!! Well, except the fair-skinned redheads of the world. They'd be tomato-people. :) Still not at 100 days yet. Tick Tock.

Pet Peeve

Sad story that is developing in Binghamton on this most recent horrible shooting... BUT... that doesn't mean the news organizations have to forget... or constantly state any place north of NYC or Westchester County is Upstate or specifically... Western NY.

ABC NEWS: Police Surround Building in Western New York State -- NOT SO MUCH
Its actually Southern Eastern NY!
