Houston & Wal-mart stepping up

I am so proud to be from Houston and Wal-Mart right now .I am seeing so many people stepping up and helping out where needed without hesitation .It is truly awesome .We are more then willing to take all that Louisianna has on our shoulders to help out anyway we can.I know Wal-mart has donated a million dollars to the Red Cross and we are raising money at every store in the company for this .We also today donated alot of supplies and that is not the end .If anyone is wanting to give but does not know how or where,get with your local wal-mart store .All money being donated is going to the American Red Cross.If you are wanting to give a large amount and do not feel comfortable leaving it in the jars ( I would not suggest doing that ) You can go to the service desk and they will get an associate from acounting for you so that you can give them your donation and know it is in good hands.Thank you Houston and Thank you Wal-Mart Inc.


Here is a link to the local news site that gives a list of shelters still availabe and emergency phone numbers for those needing medical attention .

" Wow ,I had no idea some kids are tortured like that ."

Me :"So lil one what would you like as a reward for doing your chores?"

lil one:"um,let me see,what would I like......Swimming ? "

Gup: " You can not swim in the winter so that will not work .Plus going some where every week will not always be possible so you need to think of something else ."

Me:"well do you not care if you get money ?Because your mom offers you $7.oo a week to do 7 things and you said you have only ever done three of them and that was once so what is the deal with that ?"

lil one:" Well it IS kind of cheap ."

Me:" (with a WTF look on my face ) "Cheap ?...Cheap ??Most kids your age get like a quarter a chore .When I was a kid I had to do chores and I did not get paid I just got grounded if I didn't do them.I would say $7.00 is a really good price for doing seven chores for a 7 year old."

lil one :" Wow ,I had no idea some kids are tortured like that ."



Where in the world does she come up with this ? Does anyone else out there have thier kids do chores?Do you reward them and how ?Do you punish them if they are not done?

She also has a list of daily responsibilities and rules that she must do or she gets either stood in the corner or grounded from favorite things .It is basically a daily routine with guidlines .Like backpack in your room ,clean up your area after eating , wash hands before eating and after using the potty and etc....

We are so undecided if chores should be totally optional to her and she just doesn't get rewarded if not done, or if it should be not optional and she will get in trouble for NOT doing any .I really think she needs some reponsibility .She has sort of a spoiled princess mentality when it comes to doing chores basically and she needs to get out of that really .She is a great kid otherwise .I just feel it is our responsibility to teach her some responsibility .Her mother seems to lack quite a bit in this area .She tends to go from a very structured ,has rules,basic daily routine here .To a free- for- all at her moms house .She definately needs something stable and constant .Anyway I went off on a slight tangent there ...lol

Any chore input would be wonderful :)

Nacho Supreme


Most of you that have been reading my blog for awhile know that I have changed my eating habits to omit ALOT of sodium from it due to me being on blood pressure meds .
Well by the results of my blood work I have been doing the right thing because my BP was awesome and my sodium intake was normal ...Yeahhhhh!!!Anyway my new diet that I put myself on consists of NO pills ...just healthier choices .It is a lot like the weight watchers diet in that you can have whatever you want you just have to do it in moderation.Well I absolutely love Mexican which is very high in sodium ....so in order to remain able to eat it I have to modify it a bit .So last night we were all wanting nachos so I decided to do a little modifying to suit my needs.It turned out SOOOOOOO yummy .I bought some portabella mushrooms and sauteed them in extra virgin olive oil ...absolutely no spices at all, they have a great flavor of their own.I used that instead of meat and added tomato and avocado which is a veggie that is extremely low in sodium.It does have fat but it is the good fat.A very little bit of refried beans just enough to get the stuff to stick to the chips and a little bit of cheese ( this is were I splurged a little ...most cheese is high in sodium ) and sour cream on top ...mmmmmmmmmm I strongly suggest anyone trying this recipe it was truly fantastic and I will be eating this one again ...probably for lunch today :)

New alarm clock ?


I woke up this morning to the sound of KKKRRRRKKKRRRRRKKRRRRR right outside my window.
I was like what in the world and then it dawned on me .It was a hot air balloon right above the roof .We were all suppose to go watch the hot air balloons launch for Ballunar Fest but ,I being the non- morning person that I am, was so tired and opted to stay sleeping rather than go :( I regret that desicion now but at the time it seemed the best one ..lol I Got dressed real fast and went outside .Man this thing was like barely above the trees .It was very cool .They were so low you could holler up to them and talk probably .I called Gup on the cell and he was on his way home but they kept stopping .Apparently if you go up to the balloons that have landed in all the different spots they give you trading cards .Lil one was SO excited .She was saying " this is the best day of my life " ..Wow ..lol I think she really likes going and checking out the balloons with her daddy every year.She came home and showed off her cards ...she was so proud ,it was cute .She now has something to put in her new little pink purse.

If you want to see some more cool balloon pics go check out Gup's page.

Joyce Meyer



I love listening to Joyce Meyer.I love the way she will just tell you like it is .She definately does NOT sugar coat what she is trying to get across to you at all .She is so inspirational to me .I like to listen to her in the morning while Gup is in the shower and I am doing my makeup .He is not as fond of her as I am ,so that is why I listen to her while he is doing other things .I listened to one of her "sermons" today that was just awesome .I called my mom and was talking about what she had said and how true it was and on and on .Well my mom missed it and I was thinking ...'you know, they gave a website. I wonder if they have the sermons uplaoded to the website for viewing' ( I just recently realized that my own church website offers that as well ) .
Well I went there and they DO offer the sermons ...I was like yeahhhhhh!!! I felt like I hit the jackpot and thought I would share the links with you guys :)
I also thought that her work in Africa was interesting so I am posting a link to it also for those of you that might want to go check that.I know my MIL has a soft spot for those over in Africa .Actually she has mentioned wanting to join the Peace Corp after visiting Africa .I think if it wasn't for her family she really would .




Have a Great Friday :)

Calgon take me away ....

Oh I am so tired of shit .I am tired of guinea pig shit ..I am tired of Gizmo shitting everywhere .How can so much shit come out of a puppy that only weighs 8 lbs .? Luckily our 100lb dog knows to use the potty OUTSIDE..How can so much stink come from such a small little turd ?How come he roams the yard and pees and then jumps around playing or runs to the door .I bring him in and next thing I know he has shit in the house .This morning he made a nice little poop circle in the hall ..five turds all in a perfect circle ..What the hell is that about?I don't know and I really don't care ..I just am ready for hubby to come home and deal with it for awhile .I put the puppy in it's kennel today and it escaped ...What next from this little shitter ? I am off to take a nice looooonnnnnnng hot shower ...Hopefully I will come out in a much better mood ...Atleast it will smell better in there ...God where is my febreeze .....shhhhhhhhhhhhessssshh it reeks in here .How can such a small turd smell that bad for so long after it is removed ? Maybe I should submit that one to the burning question....Ok Calgon ...I am on my way !!!!!!!!!!!

My dogs think they are cats ...

Both of my dogs think they are cats ....After using the bathroom they take their back legs and push the grass like they are trying to cover it up like a cat .I have never seen a dog do this and now I have two that do it ...I am wondering if that is normal dog behavior and I just always had abnormal dogs up til now? They also both get a mouth full of food ...walk to a different room drop it on the ground and then eat it .What is up with that ? Does anyone elses dog do this?Oh yeah and for an update on the new dog ( Gizmo) and Daizii ...they are getting along great now .They love to play tug of war,which is so cute because of the size difference .Gizmo pulls with all he has and Daizii just stands there ..lol We have some pics of it that I will have to post when I get a little more awake ...Have a great Thursday and don't forget it's BB night ( yeah like any of us would forget that ..lmao )

Google Talk !!!

Google has come out with an instant messanger called Google Talk.
I just recently got my gmail account so I am not at all sure how great this news is ...So far I have my hubby added to my list .If I do not get more contacts soon I will not be keeping it .I do not see the point .If any of my blog buddies have it my e-mail is presentstorm@gmail.com ..Go ahead and add me if you want :)

Although we can not get the invites to go through to each other .I am not sure if it is screwed up or just being slow because of a lot of traffic ..Anyone else having this issue?

Also if anyone is wanting a gmail account just e-mail me and I will have Gup send you an invite .He has 47 invites to give out . For some reason my account did not give me any to give out :( I feel so unimportant ...lmao

Feeling better and BB6 update

I am feeling so much better then I did monday night .I am still not ready to go back to work. Yesterday I could not stand or sit for to long a period ..I laid down mostly and put a heating pad on.There is nothing they can do for it really .Rest is basically it.Luckily I have a strong immune system because I am a fast healer .I think I will be ready for work either tomorrow or friday .I just do not want to go back too early and injure myself worse .I have to do alot of lifting so I do not want to chance it until I am ready .Thank you all for the nice comments :).It is nice to know there are people that care out there, ya know .

Ok on to Big Brother .I did get to watch it and I was bummed that James got it .He didn't take all the ropes off and should have got a time penalty for that in my opinion .Although at this point in the game I hope he wins the whole thing ( after Janelle leaves of course ) .Just because everyone in the house was to stupid to get him out .Including Kaysar I hate to say :( .Everyone got too focused on stupid stuff at the beginning and let James pretty much walk away with the game now .It was very stupid of Beau to let James play for veto ..Although it worked o ut for Beau since James did not use it .I am hoping that Howie goes as much as I hate to say that .I would just love Rachelle to stay to get on Ivettes nerve ....lol I also think that Janelle and Rachel are must smarter than Howie .I am hoping that thursday Janelle gets HOH and puts up Ivette and Maggie .One of those two need to go .

Praise God !!!

I had to go back to work last night to get ready for yet another inspection at work .I have fallen behind with my help being gone for over a month so I was trying to play catch up .I went back in at about 7pm and at about 9:15 I got this awful pain in my abdomen area ...At first I was like ok this will pass in a minute and continued to try and work .I even tried using the bathroom thinking it was a gas pain or something ,although an intense one it was .I tried for about another 15 minutes or so to push past the pain and work .Part of my job is very physical and it was killing me to try and continue working .I was on the verge of tears it hurt so badly .So I call Guppy and tell him to go ahead and come get me .Thank God he had driven me to work ( I have a hard time seeing at night while driving ) because I do not think I could have driven home last night .It was THAT painful .I get home and go straight to the bed to lay down .It hurt to breathe ,it hurt to stand .It was very painful .I was initially worried my appendix had ruptured or something .I laid down and realized it felt much better ...I drifted off to sleep .I woke up this morning with every intention to go into work .That was not happening .I woke up to pee this morning and I was still in alot of pain .So Guppy called work for me while I slept and then we got up to go to the ER .Let me just say I do not go to the hospital often so for me to do that I really have to think something is the matter .Well every since I found out that I had high blood preasure I have been scared to go to the Dr. period ..Anyway that is another story ..lol I have really been working on not fearing things but trusting in God .I called my mother this morning and we prayed .I also repeated my favorite verse for me .I do not have a spirit of fear ,but of power,love,and a sound mind over and over .We get to the ER and they were busy .Had a few critical patiients so we waited about an hour .That was fine it gave me even more time to pray .I was really working on my faith .That is something that I struggle with when it comes to myself for some reason .I am much better at having faith for others .They take me back and my blood preasure is awesome .Praise God ...I was excited .I expected it to be elevated with my slight anxiety .They check me over and let me know it is not apendix or gallbladder .Praise God for that too ....They take urine and give me an I.V. and take quite a bit of blood for lab work .I had calmed down my nerves a bit after my BP was good .Blood work got me a lil anxious again but Guppy and I kept saying out loud .It is going to be ok .By the blood of Jesus I am I /you are going to have a report from the Lord and it is going to be good .We waited what seems like forever but I think it was about 35 minutes or so .Dr. returns and says .....Your blood work is excellent ..YEAHHHHHHHHHH PRAISE GOD !!! THANK YOU LORD ...Man I wanted to get up and kiss that DR. I did however say to him "YOU ROCK!!!".lol The lady that had taken my blood asked if I was taking vitamens and I said no .She seemed suprized by that because my blood was so good and my iron counts and some other stuff was so good .I told her that since I was told that I had high blood preasure I have totally changed my eating habits and I eat much healthier .She told me it really shows in my blood work .I was wayyyyy excited that my determination and life style change is showing in my health :) I am so excited that Jesus answered our prayers that I am going to be ok .Come to find out I just pulled a ligament in my abdomen/groin area .Apparently my manager and Co manager are upset at me for calling in today ...the day of the inspection but you know what .I will pray for them tonight because my health is so much more important then that job .I take my job seriously don't get me wrong ....but my health is much more important then that ..I can always find another job is how I look at that .( excuse any misspellings or gramatical errors ..this was typed without planning or thought or even proofreading .. Just a very raw post ) ....

The Chuppah

If I have any Jewish readers they will probably know what this is .For those of you that do not ,I will explain . I was talking to my blog buddie Butterflyinjesus ( if you do not know who she is go over and visit ..she is awesome .)about some of the Jewish influence we incorperated into our wedding .The chuppah being the biggest one .I have my mother to thank for this ,it was her idea .I had no idea what a chuppah was until she suggested it and explained to me what it was .Now I think my wedding would have not been complete without it .Our wedding party each had a side and they held it up as we stood under it and people walked through it to give us blessings . We handed out little flyers to explain what we were doing and this is what it said :


chuppah


What are they walking under?
Chuppah
(hoop-ah)

side panels:The grapes represent "new wine".







Center: Rays of God's Light flood the center .

The butterflies~Purple and Yellow~represent the couple.
They have been transformed from the caterpillar(chrysalis)
to the new,which flies freely in God's light .

The 3rd butterfly is a combination of both colors .It is part of both,
yet is new.Notice that the butterfly is in the center of God's Light .





Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife ,and they become one flesh . Genesis 2:24

Chuppahex



A good friend of my mother and sister in Christ made this Chuppah and hand painted it for us .I am forever grateful ..It turned out beautifully .
I also wanted to include for those of you that have not already seen these ,the link to our wedding vows that guppy posted for our friends and family to read(this is best viewed in IE ..for some reason Firefox jacks it up pretty good ) .Alot of family wanted a copy because we cried all the way through our vows and most could not understand them ..lol I am so happy that we decided to write our own .We were so boo-hooing though because neither of us had heard the others until the moment we actualy read them ..lol So it got very emotional .

As a side note ...We are not Jewish we are Christian,but in essence aren't we all Jewish ?..

What is wrong with people ??????




We go to the bank today and pull in to the lane that is right at the window .While we are waiting for the teller to count the money and send it on through , I look over and see a piece of gum on the wall, right next to the little metal thing that you put your slips in .WHAT the heck possesses people to stick their nasty ass, chewed up ,has their gross spit on it gum, on things?Especially the brick on the wall of this nice bank ....Not even a bank ..It is a credit union ..WHY are people so gross...Why do people put gum under tables,chairs ,and where ever else they can think of .Did peoples parents not teach them to dispose of gum properly as a child ?What is the deal ?How hard is it to do like I do, when I am done with some gum,I take a piece of paper ,I put my gum in it ,fold it up ,and throw it away .Is that sooooo hard to do ?What is wrong with people?Do any of you stick your gum in bad places ?If so I am so wanting to hear the reasoning behind it ......

BYE BYE BITCHES!!!



I love Janelle ..lol Yeahhhh Go girl ..it's your birthday ...shake your booty!!!




Isn't this screen shot an interesting one of Kaysar and Janelle ?..lol


That was classic ..I knew deep in my heart Kaysar was going for being such a good guy .It sucks so bad ...:( He rocked !!! As much as I said I could not watch after he was voted off I must ...Now if it ends up that Janelle,Rach,and Howie leave ..I will not watch ..I can not STAND the other house guests ..lol Yeah , I can not stand them that much ..It is so weird this year .There usually are a few that I can't stand but the rest are ok or great to me .This year there are so many I can't stand ..lol That whole "friendship" makes my stomach turn . Atleast Ivette stopped whining about "Cappy" Thank you God :).Did anyone else see J-blow throw the HOH key on the ground ?What a BITCH !!!
GRRRRRRRRRR that was so classic that Janelle said "Bye Bye Bitches" ..lmao I was cracking up ...lmao Howie and Janelle ...Gotta love em .Ok everyone pray ,pray ,pray that Rachelle gets HOH saturday ..It so sucks that Janelle's stay will be so short lived :( They have got to start dwendling down those crazy bitches though ....I could go on and on ..lol I hate that BB only showed a very little bit of the HUGEEEEEEEEEEE drama that took place in that house the last two days .Man it was CRAZY!!!!! I am so getting live feed next year ....lol AKKKKKKK Ok BB fans ...talk to me :)


Here is a pic of Kaysar before a shower :)



And I thought he looked like such a sleeping angel here ..aweeeeeee WE MISS YOU KAYSAR!!!!

I have some shy readers I see ..lol



I went to my blogrolling members page today and was looking around ..I decided to see who all is linked to me .I was amazed actually ...I also was amazed at the amount of people that are linked to me that I have never even heard of ...I wonder if the read me regularly and just are to shy to comment ..If they read me once and thought they may come back someday ...Maybe I think to much ..lol I am basically posting to invite all of you that come often but have never introduced yourself to feel free to do so :) ...I do not bite ...not that hard anyway ...heheheheh I may nibble though :)

Old McDonald had a pig ...eiei ewwwwwwww!!!

Ok I know of all the people that read my blog on a regular basis there has to be SOMEONE that knows the answer to this question ....

We have started watching a new show right before bed called "Dirty Jobs " on the Discovery channel ...Have you seen this ? Here is what it is about for those of you that do not know (this is taken from the previously linked website )

"Starting in August, our brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe will introduce you to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench and overall ickiness to accomplish their daily tasks. Not one to just stand by, each week, Rowe will assume the duties of the jobs he's profiling, working alongside rattlesnake catchers, fish processors, bee removers, septic-tank technicians and other professionals: average folks tackling extraordinary tasks that simply must get done.

But you'll walk away from Dirty Jobs with more than just a glimpse into unfamiliar occupational duties — serving slop to pigs, collecting sperm from stallions and removing bones from fish, for example. If you're like us, you'll also gain a new understanding and appreciation for all the often-unpleasant functions someone is shouldering to make your everyday life easier, safer — and often cleaner.

Don't take our word for it; see it for yourself. Join Mike as he takes on these Dirty Jobs each week, beginning Tuesday, July 26. "


Ok anyway ...the other day he is helping this pig farmer ..They had to clean up the poop,clean the nursery , clip the baby pigs teeth ,give them shots in the neck ...All that I could see the importance of ..It all seemed logical to me .What they did later with the adult pigs is what had me baffled ..He put the male up on a "dummy" and while one guy jacked the pig off the other collected the semen ..Ok that is weird enough .Then he goes to the female and hops on her back ..brushes off her vulva ,inserts a cath and proceeds to squirt the males semen inside this female.
My question is why in the world ( oh did I mention that they had the male strut back in forth in front of her to get her "ready" ) so why in the world do they not take the one female and put her in the pen with the male and let them mate?Ummmmmm how on earth did pigs survive before man was able to jack them off into a cup ..That just seems so bizarre and so not natural to me .I am sure there MUST be some reasonable explanation for this procedure and I am soooo curious to hear what it is ..lol Any clue ya'll?

I am so disgusted with the whole thing ....

For all of you regular readers of mine that do NOT watch Big Brother ...shame on you, you do not know what you are missing ..lol OHHH the drama .....Just kidding ...but I do wantto apologize for my posts until the show ends ...lol because I will most likely be posting after every show from here on out ...lol I am so very disgusted with the whole show situation right now that all I have to say is ...GRRRRRRRRRRR bitches ..lol

Here are some hot pics of Kaysar while we still have him in the house for two more days ..damn the luck that he won't even be in the sequester house for us to see him ...:( BITCHES!!!! Ok ok without further ado:






Damn I am hoping for a miracle this week like the diamond veto ......Please let it be a diamond veto week !!!!!!!!Please let Kaysar find it ......I wonder if I can do a Jedi mind trick on Kaysar ...Use the force Kaysar ...USE the force ....lol
Damn I hope that works ...lol

Hypothetically speaking of course ..

Ok ...You have a child that has been in private school their whole life .They have had the same teacher since kindergarden .The whole school consists of 12 kids and the childs actual grade has 4 ,all being the same sex ( that is just how it worked out ,it is a co-ed school ) . This school goes up to 4th grade only .So that means the child will get their first taste of public school in the 5th grade ..So my question is ....When do you think A child that starts in private school should be transitioned into public school ...Now keep in mind that money is not at all an issue ...I am curious to get everyones opinion on this .

Then my secret ingredient ..I love this sauce the best when I do not have time to make my own ,which is always these days ...lol Ohhhhh the days when I had time to make my own sauce and simmer it all day ...Oh well .This is very good also ..



Here is a picture of my bowl .I sauteed some zucchini with a little garlic powder,basil,oregano in extra virgin olive oil and added it to mine .(lil one and hubby do NOT like zucchini )



Here is a picture of hubby's bowl after sprinkling some freshly grated parmesean and ramono on it .It was so Yummy that we had it for lunch today as well :)





BON APPETIT!!!

How smart is your right foot ?





How Smart Is Your Right Foot?


This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you will keep
trying it at least 50 more times to see if you can outsmart your foot.
But you can't!!!

1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and
make clockwise circles with it.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your
right hand. Your foot will change direction!!!

I told you so... And there is nothing you can do about it. Keep
Trying!

Warning this is a BB6 Rant !!!!!

Ok raise your hand if you want to take April and smack Jenny with her ..What a pair of liars ..OMG !!!!!Atleast with the good side (meaning Kaysar,Janelle etc...) they will do what they say they are going to do .They will just not say if they are about to ambush you ..I am really upset at Kaysar for believing the she devil herself ..On the live feeds the bad side is talking about backdooring Kaysar instead of James ..You know what ....If that happens then I am rooting for James all the way ..NOT because I like the guy ,because I can't at all ...But he would deserve it because everyone else is so damn stupid ..OHHHHH I am so annoyed now ...Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!! This show is driving me crazy ..lol

When did our 7 year old turn 15 ?




Ok since when did this little girl that I use to lay clothes out for and totally do her clothes shopping while she was in school turn into lil miss gotta be cool looking?
She starts second grade monday and is just cracking me up with some of the things she has said and done this last week since returning to us from her mom's .Her mom took her clothes shopping for their supplies ....(Lil one has a totally different life here and there ..her own room with her own clothes and toys on both ends they do not go back and forth) ...anyway ... She comes home with this cute little book bag from the GAP.Well she decides last night when we had to run to the grocery for a few things she is going to wear it ...We had to inform her that it is not something you wear to the grocery store it is to put school supplies in for school ..I made the terrible mistake of calling it a backpack . She informed me real fast it is a BOOK bag NOT a backpack.Also that she wanted to "look cool " since when ?...Also this got me the most ,I have never seen this side of her at all ,she wanted to keep the GAP tags on the backpack.

Me : "Um,Heather don't you think we should take these tags off here ?
Lil one :"Nooooooo,I want to keep them on there "
me:"why in the world would you want to do that ?Do you see tags still on my purse?"
lil one :I want everyone to think that it is new and see that it is from the Gap ."

I look at Guppy ( we laugh at people like that and call them label whores ) and I say in a whisper ...omg are we raising our own lil label whore?...He laughs and says "It looks like it " .

I am hoping that she grows out of that ..I mean it is ok to be successfull and to want nice things and certain brands are better then other I know this .There are certain things that I love by certain labels .BUTTTTTT I do not go around advertising the fact that they are bought from here and blah blah ...I have known people to be decked out in nothing but Tommy stuff Ambercrombie stuff ..That is nuts to be ..To each his own I guess but I would not want to raise a child to be such a snob ...


She has also decided what she is going to wear the first day of school and the second and what shirt will go with which outfit ..lol When did this happen ?What happened to needing me to help her dress ...*sigh* she is getting way to old way to fast ..

I think her theme song should be Lil Miss Independence ...lol

I have the perfect pic of what we would call a label whore I will post in my next post ..lol Have a happy Saturday !!!!!!

"Kaysar is telling about his birthday yesterday. He's depressed, feels "over the hill". Since he was sequestered, no family or friends, and got no presents. And he baked a cake for himself."

Living room tour continued...

This little tour of our living room started over on guppyman's page... If you came in from somewhere else... Make sure you go check out the rest of the pictures!










Here's the top of the coffee table.













The trunk and a blanket that guppy's mom crocheted.
















This bench started as bare wood... We painted and distressed it.













Above the entry...











This was custom made for us to fit our living room.

















These last 4 were all made and/or painted by us... The handprint on the heart is Heather's at age 4 or 5...


































Well... That's it. Now that you know the place so well... kick your shoes off and plop on down on the couch. We can watch the Dukes!
