Hello Kim & Jason & the little one:
Good go see your pictures. The baby is Soooo cute.
Hope you both have a wonderful & full year ahead of
I am still working with “Habitat”. We have built
40 house since Jim & I started with them. You and
Jason helped on a house for the ARC of the Shoals.
We have built 5 for them, and 35 for “Habitat”.
I would love to see both of you. Send me your phone
number and I will call you one day; tell me the best
time of day to call.
Love ya both,
Oh fiddlesticks! I have never heard the word “consarnate” before. Maybe that’s just as well?
Your mention of maple seeds (I agree with Doug…this show is getting seedy) reminded me of a time when I was visiting my great-aunt and great-uncle in Montana. I was out somewhere with my great-aunt and my second-cousin (her granddaughter), and we were walking under a maple tree. My great-aunt is one of the most childlike people I know above the age of 70, and she observed that while she and I wear glasses, her granddaughter does not. Since maple seeds are shaped somewhat like very small glasses, she picked one up for her my second-cousin so she wouldn’t feel left out. So considerate.
Jason’s comment about not being able to take Kim seriously with that hat reminded me of a quote from “Meet the Robinsons” when Wilbur is trying to disguise Lewis by making him wear a hat with a pile of fruit on it. At one point, Wilbur says, “I can’t take you seriously with that hat” and replaces it with a baseball cap.
I also thought I’d point out, having grown up in the Philippines, that yoyos were invented in the Philippines as a weapon to use in hunting. The hunter would climb a tree and wait perched on a branch. When an animal was walking below, they’d let loose on the yoyo, and then it would come back to them once it had hit the ill-fated animal.
One more thing…I thought I’d point out that I did not post the pictures on Doug’s fan club, in case anyone is worried. (Well, I posted the main picture [of which I am wondering “Why so serious?”], but only because the anonymous person who posted the other pictures sent it to me as a suggestion for a main picture.)
Speaking of melting away pounds–Kim, you have the mommy-sway down to a fine art :) This show is pretty funny on fast forward!

Check out this cool activity for making your own helicopter seeds – fun for home or office!
Hey guys – great show! The Joker debate is a tough one. Heath’s performance was intense. And of course his “Why so serious?” is fantastic. But we can’t overlook Cesar who has always been a classic. To top it all off, Mark Hamill has got the ULTIMATE Joker laugh and must not be excluded from the competition. In fact, that laugh combined with the great lines they give him on the show, leads me to choose Mark for my vote.
P.S. I will never look at the Macarena the same way again. :0) Thanks for the smiles.
P.S. One other note. Don’t know if anyone’s said it, but I love the pop-up facts and video clips thrown into the show. They really add fun to the presentation. Love it!

I respect Mr. Romero, not only as the original Joker, but also because of the great lengths he would go to in order put his makeup OVER his mustache as opposed to just shaving it. That my friends is respect for the stache. Touche Mr. Romero.
Based purely on performance Heath Ledger’s portrayal was impeccable.
