Hi Ho Hi Ho

Off to Sweetwater County we go! I will be starting down there next week and will be come the General Manager at the Flying J in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

I am real excited about this, as I really enjoy Wyoming and am interested in living somewhere along I-80. In fact, when I very first drove through Wyoming back in 1999, I thought about how wonderful it would be to live in Green River, which is just outside of Rock Springs. I think we may look there now for a house.

So wish me luck, pray if you would like, and keep checking for updates. I am going to have a busy couple of months but will be blogging regularly once I get the computer back up.

Now I have GUILT!

I am so sorry my blogging friends. I have not been keeping up with my blogging obligations. I will strive to do better in the future!

Of course, I am leaving to Ogden, Utah today so I will have to start striving when I get back. In the mean time, let me leave you with some fun links:

This site lets you create your own fireworks show - pretty fun, if you are a fireworks nut like I am!

Was it when Chrissy left the show? Or was it when Henry Blake's helicopter crashed and he was killed? Maybe it was when Dick Sargent replaced Dick can find out when your shows "jumped the shark" (when a good show goes bad) based on viewer votes here.

-A huge wave of water or large ball of fire will always back up to give time for any important characters to run away. This usually happens when the camera angle changes. Disasters that should take 5 seconds can easily take as long as necesary for characters to reach safety. These things usually never effect the hiding spot.
-Men don't seem to show signs of pain when receiving brutal beatings, but do when women try to clean the wounds.

You can find more all time movie cliches here.....that will keep you going a while.

OK - one more. This is kind of corny, but I know that as a kid we played this a lot - remember the MASH game (mansion shack apartment house) that so wisely predicted who you would marry, where you would live, and how many kids you would have? Now you can do it online. *sigh* A website for everything I suppose.

Alright - I have to go now. I promise to be a better blogger when I return. In the meantime, if you are real bored, don't forget pogo - the Lottso game there is real addicting.

American Red Cross

My blogging has suffered this past week as I have not only been totally immersed in my new job, but I have also began my First Aid/CPR/AED Instructor Course through the American Red Cross.

I initially signed up for this course (paid for by my company) so that I may certify employees in my own facility on my own time schedule, thus ensuring that I always had a certified employee working and would be conforming with my company's high safety standards. However, since beginning the course, I have become more excited about being able to train others in these simple yet important life-saving techniques.

Today I was also reminded about what a great organization the American Red Cross really is. I just thought that by making this little post someone out there might be so inclined as to take a course, give some blood, or donate their time to help the community. It is wonderful that there are still people out there who believe that through working together and helping eachother we can make the world a better place.

I will probably volunteer to teach a course for my local chapter as soon as my training is complete so that I can practice my newly aquired skills. I will let you all know how that goes!
