McKinley Middle Magnet is a fine school. It's not perfect but the kids are for the most part nice and the academics and arts are very good. There is very little bullying that goes on. They also recently won a National Blue Ribbon Award. My daughter went there and she loved it and my son goes there a...

I coach a U-13 boys team. I've been coaching the same team since Kindergarten. It is fun to watch the development of a team as time progresses. You will get quite a lot of satisfaction when you see your team hit their first cross or drop a pass backwards.
I keep thinking every year that this will...

I'm pretty sure there is a print to pdf option in the print dialogue box. Click print like you are going to print it and then look for that option....

Looks like a Mockingbird. I think Mockingbirds are notorious for attacking their reflections on mirrors and glass....
| O-T Lounge|| re: Willie Nelson.... Country music GOAT? - MarkS on 5/29/11 at 5:11 pm|
It looks like this thread is starting to meander a bit so what the hell... I love classic country music and pretty much gave up on all of the new artists until a friend sent me a Hayes Carll CD. I was shocked at how good it was. Anyone else listens to the guy? He reminds me of the outlaw generation ...

We stay at Pioneer Meadows in Wear's valley. There are 4 log cabins in a nice setting with modern interiors. Nice place but a bit up on the mountain. We do not enjoy the Gatlinburg thing but It's close enough if that is what you enjoy. Go hike some nice trails with your kids! Talked to a ranger onc...

I liked the fair stuff better than the murder stuff but it's all pretty good. It reads like historical fiction but it's all true....

I remember the announcers were discussing that Gomez was replaced to give us a little more D up the middle. We were starting to get a bit soft there at the end of the first half. As for Josey, He was strong at holding the ball against 2 or 3 defenders while he gave his midfielders time to move up to...

I had just about given up on any new country music until a friend handed me a copy of Hayes Carll's "Trouble in mind" CD. I particularly like "Drunken Poets Dream". Check it out...

This wasn't what I would call a prank but I'll share anyway. Back in the day I was working in the shipyards to pay for college and we had this jerk who always ate a candy bar at break. He would lick along the side of it and then offer us all a piece. This happened every day until one of my coworkers...

is a 9th grader at Baton Rouge High. She just played in her first varsity soccer match. Seeing her dressed out in her uni made me think of my first varsity football game. The emotions kinda washed over me for a minute. I didn't tear up or anything but the moment was not lost on me. She ended up play...
