Is there anything better than drinking outside after a stupidly long winter?
No!

Some plants I ordered came today. Why couldn't they come during the weekend? Eh, they'll keep until I get to them on Friday. They're in little pots.

Freaky. Watching Hawaii Five-O. Story about a girl kidnapped 10 year ago found dead. Breaking news at the bottom of the screen. Girl kidnapped 10 years ago found alive today.

I'm recording Hawaii Five-O, but I've been reading the article about the women they found. 3 of them who were abducted over 10 years ago. I can't imagine what their families are feeling tonight.

What I don't get is that the foreign news sites (Australia and the UK) have articles on this that are a couple of hours old, but it is just breaking in the US. Um, this is happening in Ohio, so how are they releasing the story so much faster?

Maybe you just have not looked in hte right place. I actually saw a news clip earlier this evening posted to Facebook BEFORE I watched the show. Looked like 5 o-clock local news. Was just extra freaky when that's what the tv show story was about and then the news scrolled across the screen.

I first heard about it when I got the CNN alert, and when I googled it the international sites all had timestamps earlier than the articles than the US articles. I could see that if the US articles had been updated, but they often had even less info than the international articles.

I am so embarrassed by the state of our news/communications services. The online site of our state newspaper is often unreadable because there are so many typos and grammatical errors. No one is bothered by putting out half of the story because they would rather put out misinformation than nothing.

Ok, I gotta change the subject.
I know next to nothing about hockey, but I know that it is a really physically taxing sport. This guy amazes me.

Hey, he's our guy! GO WILD! Sunday's game was awesome, hoping for another win tonight. Harding is doing well -- and stepped up to the plate (so to speak) in game 1, after not playing for like two months.

I think young people with MS are thrilled to have him "representing" them and what they are capable of.

Also, that article is misleading. He hasn't missed most of the short season due to his MS... he wouldn't have played much anyway, because our regular goalie is very good.

No excuse for that, I know, but remember that newspapers are losing money. they've lost paper subscribers and ad revenue is way down. They need a new business model.

It's a cycle. I rarely go to that site anymore because it's so unreadable.

I haven't heard of THAT story (that I recall, anyway), but this story is amazing. And a sad twist is, it'll give false hope to people who have a lost/missing loved one.

But these three families... I am so happy for them!

I love that the black guy who saved the three women (or who is credited with much of it) is quoted as saying (and now I"m paraphrasing), " I knew something was wrong when this young pretty white girl ran into the arms of a black man." (referring to himself)

I love this guy Charles. He heard screaming, and he DID something. He investigated.

Softball last night: We're 2-0! I had to pitch b/c our pitcher just had surgery. I hadn't pitched since last year. Man, if you can throw a horseshoe accurately, you can pitch slow-pitch.

Game tonight (subbing) and THursday nigth (subbing) as well. I think I over committed.

I can't be your Darlin', I am already Edog's honey and I am not that kind of girl.

But everyone needs their fantasy on the court or off, so dream on.

The league my husband is playing in now is unlimited arc. That is crazy. The guys are having a hard time adjusting to that.

You are going to be hurting on Friday and Saturday!

Wow, those high pitches can be difficult to hit when they come back down.
