Today I’m thankful for Google. Oops…I guess Thanksgiving is over and I’m a little late with my thankfulness listings. I kind of like the thankfulness daily posts on Facebook before Thanksgiving because if I’m peaceful, I read thru them and usually get a hit for something I’m thankful for. This whole rule about prepositions at the end of sentences being a no-no has me really bugged. For many years, I was a slave to gramatical correctness. Now I talk like I’ve ain’t never been schooled.
Back to Google. I’m curious today…Google is my friend. I started off googling Kenny Rogers…that man is 74 years old..no wonder he had a limp and an occasional voice kink..he’s also been married 5 times and has 5 kids. I thought MaryAnn from HEE HAW fame was his first…uh no…number 4.
I really want to see Chicago – the band. I googled neighboring state concert venues and the closest is Salina, KS. Interestingly enough – my BIL and SIL recently moved to Salina KS. Tickets are pretty high..I’ll need to think about this. Bon Jovi is coming to the Des Moines civic Center in April. That is about the only two places that had anything interesting to me. He and I are going to Kansas City next weekend to see TSO for the 3rd time. And the week before Christmas, we will be seeing Mannheim at the Civic Center in Des Moines.
I googled Nina – which is greek and means grace and wow…don’t we know that is true…then I looked up names from 1956, 1952, 1981 and 1987. Of the 4 of us in the family..Jennifer is the only one who made favorite baby names for her year. The rest of us either didn’t make the chart or were so far down that it doesn’t even matter.
My back is still causing me grief from the fall. Lots of pain center back. It will be two weeks on Tuesday since I took the tumble. It’s getting old!
That’s it for now…Until next time….
