I watched more curling this weekend then in my entire life. I mean how can you not take this sport seriously eh?
Yesterday DJ, Blake and I took a drive to Madison because I was worried that the "predicted" big snow storm (which I did not see but the experts did) was going to force Hoofers to take down Lady Liberty. So we got there and the torch was down but she was still up.
DJ was not really excited about going on the ice and Blake was not enthused about walking on water the big dogs didn't help) but I got them to pose AND smile next to the aging Lady.
There were a number of people from The Netherlands taking photos and looking around. Actually to me more corrector it is The Kingdom of the Netherlands. Which is also called Holland which is populated by a bunch of Dutch people that wear wooden shoes.
Did you know that 20% of The Netherlands is below sea level?
And before I forget - one of the best sites for looking at amazing photos is called The Big Picture at Boston.com. They have some fantastic Olympic photos up now. This is just one.
Check out Big Pictures
I was doing my tax's last night and came to the 1098 Mortgage Interest section and found I did not have this form. hmmmmmm So I called US Bank and asked them about this and they said they sent it with out mortgage statement in January with IMPORTANT on the envelope.
Oh yea - IMPORTANT really makes me go on alert eh? When I see an envelope with IMPORTANT on it, 90% of the time it's for life insurance. It's also like TIME SENSITIVE MATERIAL on the envelope which is typically car insurance. You might as well address it to FRIEND eh?
Columbus is getting a lot of historical (not hysterical) stuff going and it's about time. Alice Schmidt has established The Alice L. Schmidt Charitable Trust for the Preservation of Columbus, Wisconsin Memorabilia. (also called the ASCharTruPCbusMem).
There is so much history in Columbus including the largest Brewery and Malt Operations in America (at one time) and the Largest Canning operations in American at one time. There is a lot of work going on in regards to a museum at a secret location (at the moment . . . secret because I'm not sure I may speak of it yet but it's a perfect location) and if I can get my Historic Columbus Photographs Face book site going (I suppose I should have actually HAD some historic Columbus photographs first) things will take off.
Anyone is interested in helping form a Columbus Historical Society (with the emphasis on starting a museum)contact Kim Bates. We are going to have a meeting to see if we have enough people interested- I have the details at work and I'm at home today- I'll post them tomorrow. Call me at work six two three - five three two five if you are interested.
That's it for today!
Have a great day - artic cold front coming but a late February artic front only means in the low 20's! Not a big deal eh?
