Hodgepodge

Oh yea...I am sick with Olympic fever...bad case and there seems to be no cure, other than a couple hours of speed-skating and luge. And, sorta waiting for Lindsey Vonn with great anticipation...she better be worth all the fuss!!! Her shin seems to be getting more news coverage than the offensive in Afghanistan. The fact that she looks dynamite in a bathing suit is probably not totally unrelated to that level of attention.

Next...the woman who shot up the University of Alabama Huntsville? And may have sent a pipe bomb to someone? And may have murdered her brother? Could that story get weirder..? (And, is this as big a story nationally as it is around here, where the pipe-bombing and brother-murdering may have taken place?)

Finally, a spelling question: President's Day, Presidents' Day or Presidents Day?

Discuss...and enjoy your day off if you have one:-)

The Amy Bishop "shenanigans" were reported on the news here too, but I'm in CT, so pretty close to the early mischief.

According to my Outlook calendar (with the holidays auto-populated), it's President's Day. But we all know that Bill Gates can't spell well so... ;-)

Ha the Amy Bishop early stuff happened in my hometown in 1986 ... where my dad is currently Chief of Police. And did a press conference on the whole she-bang on Saturday.

President's Day. :)

Up here it is either Family Day or Louis Riel Day...but currently it is known as day after 1st Gold Medal Day! In a city where we have snow sculptures of our Olympians (mainly speed skaters)...Olympic fever is running rampant!

Hi!
I don't have an answer to your question, but I did want to say hello!
I have spent the last while reading your blog from the beginning! It has been a great read and I can't wait to follow live!

Presidents' Day... possessive plural. :-)

P.S. My word verification for this comment is "medal." How appropriate for the Olympics!
