If you live anywhere near McMinnville. Join me this evening at The Elks Lodge in McMinnville, for the St. James Auction and Monte Carlo Night! The address is 333 NE Evans Street. Doors open at 5:30pm. There will be Silent and Standard Auctions, Raffles. Dinner included with local chef Tony Danna. Some GREAT prizes including a 32" flat screen, and an iPad 2! Gonna try out my auctioning skills, and most probably lose my shirt at Texas Hold 'Em lol. I look forward to seeing you there!!
Im sure you must have noticed, that since starting his job as the Prez... His hair has significantly grayed (not to mention, he looked a lot happier back in the day lol). Well, the President claims the gray hair is due to genetics and not job stress. Do you agree?
Check out the before.. and after
So, I know its going to be warmer towards the end of this week (at least at the time of this writing)... that said, tis the season for slow cooking! Have you ever experienced such a wonder? I absolutely love it. Slow cooking is one of my favorite things ever. Simply throw some ingredients in a pot, turn it on, leave your house, and voilà! You return home several hours later, and everything is done. Tenderly cooked, piping hot. So delicious. And as an added bonus.. when you come home your house smells like Cracker Barrel (thats a restaurant in case youre not familiar) It just doesnt get any better than that. I just bought myself a slow cooker yesterday and on the very first day of bringing it home, made the BEST homemade vegetable soup, using all locally grown vegetables. Sooo good!
Having a conversation with a friend this week, about how it seems to have become culturally acceptable for people to NOT do their job correctly. Whether it's fast food drive up, or an office administrator, to a radio dj. Is this the product of an "instant gratification" society? Do we tend to want to get things done as quickly in our analog lives, as we can seem to get things done in our digital lives? If so, is it the fault of the Internet? I mean, the Internet has just exascerbated our want for instant gratification, hasn't it? thoughts? Comments? Would love your take on it.
Just me? Or are misspells popping up everywhere? Texts.. Menus.. Storefronts.... Street signs?! Yup :)
On my drive in to work this morning, saw a digital construction sign that read: "Rode Work Ahead"
Feel free to COMMENT BELOW on any interesting, prominently displayed, misspells you may have come across recently.
