Got some good deals.

We went to Park MEadows mall last night and my mother got some good deals on towels. She already sent one box to the Philippines but she is still planning on sending another one. So, she is buying some discounted things for her to send. Anyway, MAddie behaved well and was walking the whole time we we're in the mall. She didn't complain or cry. She was happy to be outside. Jarod was not cranky in his car seat. So, we are all have a happy malling.

On Demand on the Go.

Contribution by Franklin Meyers

As a travel writer I spend a lot of time on the road from assignment to assignment. Often I stay in hotels that provide satellite TV from in the rooms. When I'm knackered after a day of traveling or work, I like to relax with my head on the pillow and my remote in hand. Because I travel so much for work, I rarely have time to make it to the theater or keep track of what movies are in the theater or on DVD. When i'm alone in my hotel room, I use this opportunity to catch up on movies on demand on satellite TV.

Depending on the hotel, these on demand movies are sometimes released before DVD. I can watch the latest films with a press of the button. The charge is put on my room bill and I can relax and be entertained. Let's face it, you don't always get the largest variety of channels in a hotel room, so having this option is incredibly refreshing. I like the power to watch what I want when I want- even on the go.

Maddie's appointment.

Early morning tomorrow is Maddie's flu shpt appointment in allergy department KAiser. Hopefully, it's going to be fast because hubby has to work after the appointment. Also, we are having our flu shots too while there. We'll probably leave JArod at home with my mom so that he is not going to be bothered. Anyway, dinner is ready. Got to go.

Amazing Zoo Experience.

My family and I had the most amazing experience at the Indianapolis Zoo. We have done quite a bit of traveling and sigh seeing across the country and never would have thought that our own backyard zoo was going to be where our best experiences were. Since moving to Indiana two years ago we have been nothing but pleasantly surprised.

One afternoon we decided to go on a spur of the moment trip to the zoo. We packed up for our impromptu visit, set the home security alarm from, and jumped in the car not expecting much.

Boy were we in for a treat! The Dolphin Adventure show was spectacular. When entering the aquarium you first are underneath a ceiling of glass where you can observe the dolphins swimming freely in their huge tank. Then we made our way to our seats and were lucky enough to sit in the first row. The show began and it blew our minds! The trainers put on a hilarious presentation with the dolphins and taught us some tricks. At the end they made a splash, literally! We ended up soaking wet but the kids were tickled pink.

After the show we enjoyed the rest of what the Indianapolis Zoo had to offer including a desert tour and even feeding a giraffe some mango slices. It was an incredible day.

This Thursday is MAddie's flu shot appointment at Kaiser allergy department. I know that Maddie is not going to like it. Also we will have our flu shot too at that time. Kaiser already offer it since the 4th of October. The good thing is that the vaccine already has H1N1 in one. At the end of this month I will have my postpartum appointment too. All this appointment is getting expensive for the co-pay. But it's better than having no insurance. So, I better not complain.

Life in NOLA.

Guest post written by Peter Jones

Living in New Orleans is really a treat. My wife and I moved here a few years ago to get a look at a differnet part of the US (we'd been in Maine for nearly 40 years and wanted to see some of the south). It's a really fun place to live! We try to go explore a new part of the French Quarter every Saturday so we get to know the history of the place. Last week as we were walking down Bourbon Street we ran right into a street fair, which was a blast. I used to play the trumpet back in college, so it was great to hear some of the street jazz musicians were playing on the sidelines. They played some great tunes. I wished I could have joined them!

And what made our stroll even better? I just got some new hearing aids from, so everything was crystal clear. And the rest of the day was even better. We topped off our evening with a big pot of cajun jumbo and some beignets from a nearby pastry store. I can't wait to see what next Saturday holds, and every day in between.

Hubby's class.

Today being hubby's class is going to be a busy day for him and a long one too. I asked him to buy some milk for Maddie when he comes home. Hopefully, not too late. Anyway, I gave Maddie and Jarod a bath and now they are sleeping like a rock. I started the dishwasher already and then later grill some fish for dinner. Have a good afternoon to you all.

The Enjoyment of Going to a Professional Football Game.

Thanks for the post, Kathy Shelton

Going to a professional football game, especially when it's my favorite team, is like no other experience. Sitting in the stadium, full of screaming fans and watching the two teams battle it out makes for a perfect day. Hearing the crunch as the players meet to get at the ball is a beautiful noise, and I love watching a talented quarterback spin the ball across the field.

I love watching the games in person, but when I can't watch a professional football game in the stadium I enjoy watching it on satellite TV from This helps me to catch the plays, my favorite players and have a good time even if I can't be there in person. I always like to wear the team colors and make a bet on who the winner will be. When I watch, I also love to have a pizza and a beer to enjoy with the game. Me and the guys can have a good time taking in an afternoon game and hoping that our favorite team will win and head for the playoffs.
