Open Thread: Nice Weekend Edition

I’m going to hang out with my family this weekend. As a matter of fact, I scheduled this post for sometime on Saturday- it is actually late Friday night and I’m enjoying the silence before this weekend gets nuts- I’ve got a houseful.

So, what do you want to talk about, LaV? I am so sad for the people in Japan. I hope they’re able to get things under control soon. I pray for the families of those who have died.

I saw an awesome thing on Wii News earlier today. The headline was, no kidding, “Woman goes to Va. court with tiny monkey in bra”, making that the best news story I have ever read.

Otherwise, I leave it open to you, dear readers. What’s on your mind?

      LV2LV I have checked on the potholes leading into the convience center on Sandhill Rd about a month back. That belongs to the county, so we are unable to fix it. Since this is county property it would be nice to see our county tax dollars go into fixing it. I would say the only way it is going to get fixed is to call our county commissioners Carol Cook at 615-793-7484 or Doug Shafer at 615-459-9337. Or you can go to for a list of county commissioners.

    Getting some exercise by playing “bowling” on Mark’s Kinect….it doesn’t seem to hurt my arthritis in knee at all…so this might be my exercise besides a little walking…Love the game…Thanks to my son, Mark for getting me started on this.
