Two Super Storms Headed Toward the U.K.:

Severe weather both worries and fascinates me.  Sometimes folks don't even realize that bad storms are heading their way.  I forward weather posts on FB and drive my friends crazy, but I wanted to make sure that my friends in the U.K. are aware of this one.  Here is the link to the story:

Batten down the hatches, and stay safe!

Thank you, I am battening down the hatches! We are having quite a battering as I write this but probably here on the south east coast we have escaped the very worst. My son has made it here today for Christmas so I'm very thankful that his journey through France and under the Channel was without incident (though slow).

Very best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas and happy year in 2014.

So we are sending them the storm that hit our eastern states. Not a very nice Christmas gift. I wish them well and will keep up with the news to see what happens.

Two storms down and a third to come on Friday. I wish someone would give that jet stream a nudge northwards so it misses us.

Merry Christmas, Kathy.

We have fencing down and garage and car port roofs no longer where they should be! It's quieter this morning, still a breeze and still wet. I feel sorry for travellers as a lot of motorways and public transport is disrupted or cancelled.
Merry Christmas.

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
