When you here The Eagles you’re either talking about the rock band, The Eagles, or you are talking about what Tolkien characters say just when it looks like our heroes are on their last leg. For this time though, I’m talking about the band.
Bill Simmons is one of my favorite author/columnist. I was first introduced to his basketball opinions by a coworker when he was the man headlining ESPN.com’s 2nd Page. He’s also the author of The Book of Basketball, a great read if you haven’t read it. You may have noticed him in studio with Magic, Barkley, and Wilbon during the NBA playoffs. He also is one of the people responsible for Grantland.
And a BBC documentary about the LA music scene from the 60s to the 70s.
Just a warning, there is some language and drug use in the movie, articles, and documentary (dude, it was rock in the 70s, what do you expect?). But it was pretty interesting since I know most of us love their songs.
With only 138 days left until Christmas, I thought I’d do the Christmas Draw. (And it helped I’ve been on the phone since I walked in the door at work and my mind started to wander.
So here’s the draw results:
Jere has Leah
Becky has Justin
Melissa has Laurie
Joe has Catherine
Justin has Tianna
Laurie has Matt
Will has Stephen
Trish has Josh
Catherine has Becky
Chris has Trish
Leah has Will
Josh has Chris
Andrea has Lindsey
Stephen has Melissa
Amy has Jere
Matt has Andrea
Lindsey has Amy
Tianna has Joe
I’ll also email this list out to you all. (If you get this email from a different email address than your preferred email, please let me know what your preferred email address is. Or if you don’t get the email, please let me know as well.)
I made sure no one drew the same name as the last two years, but if I missed something, please let me know.
Please remember the limit is $20, and please try and put some thought into the gift (which MAY eliminate gift cards). And if anyone has a wish list already on a website, please feel free to share (I’ve got a wish list going on Amazon I’m happy to give details for).
So, this is how Ashlee’s primary class went last Sunday…
The kids are all sitting in class waiting for it to start. Someone pokes their head in and says the substitute teacher will be there in 5-10 minutes. A little while later, a lady walks in. She puts down the manual on the table and says, “Here’s the manual, you have 15 minutes to prepare a lesson to teach to me. I’ll be right back, I need to go grab something.” She gets up and leaves the class room.
The class looks at the lesson, gets their discussion ready, prepares the chalk board and everything, then sits down to wait for the substitute to return.
