I guess the "markers" thought there was too much irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text, along with a large number of links, usually all pointing to a single site.
If "they" had just taken 30 seconds to read my nonsensical writing they would see what that site is exactly all about. I really have used that site to help me learn about the blog world without ruining any of my real blogs. They name was happily supplies by my children. Clever.
I had a note attached to that blog that told me all of this. I requested they review my sweet havegas blog so it can be unlocked and posted upon again. I guess with all of it's 177 hits it is quite the draw.

Steven, Quinn and Zak have been practicing for the upcoming Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving!
I was busy cooking in the kitchen. I gave the camera to Griffin (!) he went out and took several of these pictures!

This is one of the outcomes of all the football practice:

Make your own Fridge at LayoutStyles.com!
I need a Countdown to Thanksgiving or
- a count up to how many rolls to make
- count up to how many cinnomon rolls to make
- how many trips I will have to make to the grocery store
- maybe how many TD's the Cole family will make
Look what I found:
Widgets & Flash Toys
The boys came home last night; Yeah!

Highland Oaks had a FIRST TIME November Musical Performance.
It was quite a thing, as it was GRIFFIN'S first time performing. He is my usual date, sits by me, and I try to help him see. This time he was on on the stage! So, please sit back, you have plenty of video to watch. Thank your lucky stars that the battery on my camera was almost out!

I now have some new eyes. They had to do the 'PRK' one on my left eye because of some scar I have there. I found out he was changing things up like 5 minutes before I went in. But I can see much better now. This picture was taken like 45 seconds after I got out of surgery. They wasted no time - notice how my eyes look like I haven't slept in a week. My guess is part of that is the iodine they put all over the place.

And I see another confirmation that Dad and I were to marry - we have the exact same record in Fantasy Football. So many sames! I love you, Kerry. Now, Kerry, if you were Han Solo, what would you respond with?

I haven't asked mom much stuff about Fantasy football, but we've talked about the Turkey Bowl. First, I asked her which one of us would get the most TD's; she said none of us would get any. I said: What!?!?! she then explained that she didn't think any of us have ever gotten any touchdowns in any turkey bowl. I then explained to her we supply about half the touchdowns scored per turkey bowl (at least). So I asked he again, who will get the most TD's. she says "ummm, uhh I think Steven." I said: What!?!?!. then Dad put in that he got 2-3 touchdowns last year, so I asked mom how many touchdowns she thought each person would get. she said:
Steven: 7 Me: 6 Christopher: he's injured (eye surgury), so he'll only get 3. Dad: 2-3 Quinn: 1-2
I asked her if anybody (and how many) kick-off return TD's will be scored and she said none.
I'm willing to bet anyone 10 points Steven (assuming he's on the elders side) doesn't get 7 TD's.
APPROVAL MESSAGE FROM MOM:

The teacher, Sis. Swift picked "I Am Sam"
Other student's movies were: Pan's Labyrinth; Labyrinth; Fight Club (!)
Zak chose Rocky. Good choice. Really, he wanted to chose Rocky 4 but felt like he couldn't ignore the First Rocky and skip right to the 4th.
Another part of the stand.
In OTHER news:
Kylie has caught herself a really good/bad cold. I took her to the doctor yesterday just to make sure it was nothing else more severe. Her cough is awful. The nurse thought it was a fine idea to tell us to be there a FULL HOUR before we could even be seen. We watched people come and go as we sat and read out books. I don't like that nurse. The doctor, I like.

Oh, you boys!
Really the drill is for the adults so they can know exactly what to do in case of this emergency. So, I saw a whole gaggle of adults over in the shade doing their "drill" while the whole elementary student body sat in the sun. One little boy came up to the teacher and told her he was hot. Sorry, nothing could be done. I was supposed to be their to take the kids to the computer room.
I left to go to the grocery story (after I made this blog). Zak texted me (correct grammar??) then that he was just starting his 2 hour earthquake drill. Now, I am sure the high school students will find some enjoyment out this.

"No, I'll show you." He promptly went to the fridge and pointed out, "this" (miracle whip) and "this" (ketchup).
"That's what you want?"
I made it and I asked him how he liked it.

Apparently we live in the best place to raise kids in the state of CA.
If you need proof, click the link below.
Today I got gas for $2.49 It was a happy occurrence, much better than prices this summer. Then I suggested to Zak that we just move to the place, wherever in the US, that has the cheapest gas prices. I would do it! I heard on Regis and Kelly today that the price of gas in New Jersey was (something like) $1.89! I would move there!
