The War

Ken Burns -the famous documentary producer-
is premiering his FIFTEEN hour-long movie
about WW 2 tonight.

I can't wait till it come out on DVD.
It will make my birthday wish list for sure
(although I don't know anyone who has $130.00
to spend on a Sister's present!)

The "Udder" Fair

Just some snapshots of the fun -and terror- that we had at Platteville Dairy Days.

Sarah rode on her first Merry-Go-Round, or was it a carousel??

Anyways she had fun, especially with the up and down part.

Doesn't she have a handsome Escort?

Luke took Sarah down the Slide.
She might look a litte apprehensive, but she liked it

It's actually very relaxing to be spun around like a top.

Your legs aren't holding you up, the momentum is, it's VERY fun.

And now for the SCARY part-hide the Children! they might want to try it!

Here Lydia and I, we were so innocent and unsuspecting...

The point of this ride is to take you far up into the sky in a rocking cage...

and then drop you -face first if you flip the cage- down about one hundred feet, with only a bar holding you to your seat. See Susie's Hair?

WARNING! This ride is not for the children, the faint of Heart, or the faint of Stomach.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

"If I had my way I'd be back in New Jersey eating Pizza."

Pizza is the All-American food!

But here's a question that popped into my head tonight.

Do you eat your pizza with a fork or by hand? Please comment!

One more quote:

" 'You look like Yanks.

You sound like Yanks,

but are you really Yanks?'

'What do you want?

The scores from the World Series?

Grab your stuff and let's get out of here'

'Yup, you're Yanks.' "

That one really cracks me up for some reason!!

May I borrow your brain for a moment?

'I not only use all the brains I have, but all that I can borrow.'
-Woodrow Wilson.

I've registered to take my first CLEP class. This is new territory for me, uncharted waters as it were, and I'm not the adventurous type. So Mom's encouraging me, and I'm studying history! History, I know I cheated a little by choosing that for the first test, but would you rather I started with algebra?
