I have this habit of checking my blog every time I am online to see if it has been updated. Like I wouldn't have been the one that did it. I sometimes wish there were blog fairies who would throw me a metaphorical bone every now and then by hacking into my blog and writing something super stellar; at least post the equation to cold fusion, world peace or something.

My sister had this calculator on her blog that she got from her friend and I loved it so much I decided to post it. See how much your body would be worth. This could be really useful information for you or your family if the economy gets any worse.

Because of all these happy memories I decided to buy one and give it a go myself. I don't think mine got cooked long enough but it still turned out all delicious. Here are some pictures of the process and outcome:

I would like to introduce all of you to my new love, BIG RED. After contemplating the purchasing a vacuum for awhile, last week I decided I was ready to make the commitment. I felt committed to vacuuming for at least the life of the vacuum and who knows how long that might be. But then I went to Costco where I fell in love with BIG RED. That's when I knew that I wouldn't have any trouble finding the motivation to vacuum. After a week my feelings and affections remain unchanged. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

"I approve this message" (sometimes in the past tense, with "authorize" in place of "approve," or with "ad" instead of "message") is a phrase said by candidates for federal office in political advertisements on television and radio in order to comply with the so-called "Stand By Your Ad" provision of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA), enacted in 2002, that requires "a statement by the candidate that identifies the candidate and states that the candidate has approved the communication".
I hope you enjoy the accompanying video that hilariously demonstrates uses phrase.

G and G Campbell
2-Within a stones throw of great hiking camping and eateries like Grumpy Goats hot dog. A hot dog place with real goats tromping around in the back yard and yes the people there really are grumpy.
My brother Matt in front of Grumpy goats.
3-A place where the highway might as well be a movie theater for the hours of entertainment and conversation it supplies. Although the new favorite topic of conversation is my brothers new house going up next door to G and G.
The fam scoping out newly poured concrete
4-It's beautiful! Not too many people can wake up and go jogging in a place like this.
5-The land of square ice cream cones. I didn't remember to take a pic of the actual ice cream cone but please notice the shirts we made seeking to recreate to older picture that debuted on an the Allen Christmas card of 1987.

My sister Kirsten took us to Great Falls Park, the Virginia side.
Great Falls Park, Virginia.
The Fam sitting in the middle of a lock that was used to transport good around the falls on the Potomac. We weren't actually supposed to be in the lock but the Forrest Ranger agreed to take our picture anyways.
Breakfast at Eastern Market. I ate here a couple of years ago, got the chocolate chip pancakes and had to really search for the chocolate chips. This time they were much more generous.
Poltergeist stairs at Georgetown. I have never seen the movie but my friend Emily told me a priest throws himself down these stais to become depossessed (that may not be a word). Anyways we didn't hang out there too long, I can only repress the urge to reenact for so long.
This picture needs no description needed but we went so late most of the animals were not out so that is why there is a picture of me instead of a cuddly creature.
Somewhere in Indiana. I am pretty sure this particular corn is being used to make both ethanol and high fructose corn syrup.
Carthage Jail. The jail where Joseph Smith was killed.
This can't be confirmed but we believe Joseph Smith drank from this very drinking fountain before entering the prison.
Kirsten and James in front of the Nauvoo temple.
While in Nauvoo we were able to attend what may be one of the best theatrical/musical performances ever, entitled Riverboats and Mormon Girl Meets Non-Mormon Boy Who Eventually Joins the Church and They Live Happily Ever After Dreams or something like that. I have never seen the wittle and whistle gang so honestly portrayed on stage.
Anyways we made it home safe and sound and I have done enough moving and driving to last a lifetime.
