A Night in Baseball Heaven with the Cardinals - 08/27/08 02:20 PM
Last night we went to the ballgame in Baseball Heaven AKA Busch Stadium (for now).. It seemed as though we showed up, the Brewers showed up and many of their fans but the Cardinals were not there. Well, they were there physically but they were not playing very well. They managed to nearly score a run or two but for the most part it was sad. My mom and her new husband joined us at the new and improved ballpark. Jim, my new dad, was not impressed with the stadium. He recalled how unique the old one was and how much (7 comments)
Sparky the Wonder Dog - 08/27/08 09:45 AM
One might ask how a dog can be a wonder. Here is my attempt to post about my newest family member, Sparky. Sparky is a Collie/Shepherd/Husky?? mix. He was rescued and adopted from the St. Louis Humane Society. His name at the time of adoption was "Brody". I did not care for the name but thought I would get used to it. Well, after about a week of forgetting the dog's name I decided it had to be changed. I mean who calls a dog "Brody"? The only Brody I could ever remember was the guy in the Jaws movies. I did (24 comments)
Watch Out Cold Weather Ahead - 08/25/08 02:47 PM
Just in time for the COLD winter ahead, five low cost ideas to have a "greener" home and save some money on those heating bills. 1) Boost insulation. Insulation can settle and lose its fluffiness, reducing the ability to protect against energy loss. Your attic insulation needs to be at least one foot deep. So spend some dough to bulk up the attic insulation. 2) Have a blower test. Employ an energy auditor to find the areas in which air is escaping. If you plug cracks around windows, doors, pipes and light fixtures with caulk and weather stripping, you can tighten your (0 comments)

Stone Hill Grape Stomp 2008 - 08/22/08 04:56 PM
You missed a gorgeous day! We had a stompin good time! This is a follow up to my invitation to attend the Grape Stomp in Hermann, Missouri. We made it to Stone Hill Winery at 8:30 a.m. It was chilly for an August morning in Missouri. I actually had to wear a jacket to be comfortable.
We waited in line until 11 a.m. then the registration took place. Everyone in our group was within the 90 admitted to stomp. We carried all our picnic items in and proceeded to set the table. Everyone who walked by commented on the outlay of (2 comments)
A Break on Mileage Deductions vs Profit Share - 08/01/08 03:51 PM
Have you heard? We are going to get a break on the deduction for mileage on our taxes for this year. Yes, that is right, a whole .08 cents more per mile. I am happy to have the additional deduction but gas has been expensive all year not just from July 1st to December 31st. Wouldn't you rather have a share in the profits of Exxon/Mobil? They only posted $11.8 billion in profits in the second quarter. So which would you vote for: mileage deduction break or profit share with Exxon/Mobil? (6 comments)
