A little laugh - this one even made Dr. Chad Everson laugh!

Just saw this on a blog of a "blogger friend" of ours! Who knew that there was another "Chad Everson" out there - but his name is Chad "Grizzly" T. Everson and he is a conservative, Republican, homeschooling blogger from up North! We have commented on each other's blogs now that we know about one another - check out his sites if you get a chance!

Anyway, this was on one of his blogs this morning as a comment from another poster - I thought it was hilarious! It was titled: "Dear Friends and Family"

"Dear friends and family,With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote ” The Hokie Pokey” died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started….

“Shut up.” You know it’s funny.
Thats what its all about!

I thought it was important you all knew…"

The Everson Home - Retro? Not this week!

Ok....so I have always wanted to "go back" to the "good old days" of when I was growing up - but not this week! I am so thankful for all of the modern conveniences - I am thankful for computers, email, cell phones and all of the other wonderful technologies! If it were not for cell phones - I don't know what I would do this week as we are getting ready for this move! Retro movies, toys and games - great! But give me my cell phone!

The Everson Family Road Trip!

Road Trips are not the same as I remember them!

We recently took a road trip with our two boys - both of whom no sooner hit the seats than they have their headphones on and they are ready to watch! Road trips are no longer what we remember them to be! Remember when you got the floorboard, the older sibling got to lay across the seats and the youngest had the back window? I remember leaving at 2:30 am because my parents were praying that we would sleep most of the way! The real "good old days" were when we had the wood paneled station wagon and we could lay in the back and watch the stars as we travelled! Now, good luck getting a word out of them while you travel - the only times we get the headphones off are when they need to switch their movies or when mom and dad ask them to - wait for it - oh no, - Heaven forbid we ask them to TALK TO US! Aarghhhh!

Retro Girl Wants to Know...Does Pastor Chad Everson use Encyclopedias?

Ok...There is a segment on the Georgia Bulldogs weekly show called "Water Girl Wants to Know" and it is Mark Richt's wife (the water girl for the team), who asks him a question about the team that most people think of, but would never get to ask. I love the segment and, for some reason it was on my mind when I was writing this - so you get my ramblings and nonsense!

But, the question remains - Encyclopedias....how many of you have them? We were doing our school work the other day and the boys needed information on something dealing with early American history - so, what did we do? We went to the encyclopedia - NOT! We immediately went and googled our topic and spent the next hour fishing through all that it pulled up - more information than we could have ever needed! What about you - got an encyclopedia hanging around the house? (The boys asked if that was a book that you actually had to buy when we were little...I explained that it was a 26 volume set that held a fraction of the information that is currently online today. They were amazed and then, again - that familiar look of pity came over their face where they are actually feeling sorry for me having to grow up in such lowly conditions!)....Who knows, maybe I'll talk to them about a thesaurus tomorrow just for fun!
