Duck Update

There was one egg as of Monday….I checked yesterday afternoon…and now there’s this…

2013-05-28_16-18-13_900

I will start my own Duck Dynasty.

I immediately started Googlin’…and found out that a duck won’t sit on her nest until all the eggs are laid. So, this duck is just comin’ back once a day, laying more eggs, and then flying off to who knows where. Eventually, though, once this egg-laying-palooza is over, this duck will return to cover her eggs. Do I leave out bread? What happens when they hatch? What then? I’m not going to harm the little ducks or anything, but I can’t really have my kids playing in the backyard while Mama Duck closely guards her eggs.

What a Great Father’s Day Gift Idea

They are signs/posters with fantastic Seinfeld quotes. Would look great in a basement….or above a fireplace. Just sayin’.

Harrison Barnes

This morning, we talked with Harrison Barnes, and what a fantastic guy. Very down-to-earth, very personable (heck, he even¬†laughed at our jokes). He’s at the Urbandale HyVee on Friday from 4-6 to sign autographs…and then at the Ames HyVee on Saturday.Oh, he turns 21 tomorrow, so happy early birthday.

Other Father’s Day gift idea? A Harrison Barnes Warriors jersey.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!

REVIEW: In-fighting is entertaining in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

13-overlay

"Civil War" stands out as certainly the biggest of the stand-alones, and among the best because of what it has in common with the better films in the Marvel universe: the conflict is deeply human, told humorously, and best enjoyed if you don't overthink it.
