New Look?

The changes I made to my blog's template may not stick around for long, but I needed some new colors!!!

Will Rodgers

I was flipping through an American Literature textbook and found these great quotes from Will Rodgers:

"Politics has got so expensive that it takes lots of money to even get beat with nowadays"

"Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects"

"We have eleven million unemployed, counting the four million that do nothing but keep statistics on the things that we would be better off if we didn't know."

And my favorite:

" Every time we have an election we get in worse men and the country keeps right on going. Times have only proven one thing, and that is that you can't ruin this country, even with politics"

The '08 Election is coming hard and fast. I've been trying to find an unbiased( yeah, good luck on that!) blog or news source that can keep me updated on the different issues, candidates, and debates.
Here's one great blog that seems to cover a lot of bases:

Smile, you're on camera!

I've been experimenting with my Dad's ancient 35mm Canon. I'm not exactly sure about the model or year. It's definitely a Canon EOS Rebel, but I'm not sure the model and it was bought sometime before I was born, meaning it's at least 18-20 years old. Despite it's inconveniences, it's a lot more fun to take pictures with. My flash is out of commission right now, so I can only take pictures with natural light. I took some pictures around here and then some at church. Now I've got to get them developed. If any look ok, I'll post them here.
I've always like photography, but unfortunately I'm not good at it. Maybe I can get some books from the library and read up on it.
Some great quotes about photography:

“There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.”

-Ansel Adams (American Photographer)

“Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.”

-Author Unknown

The toppings consisted of broccoli, onions, green bell pepper,pizza sauce, and cheese.

Great Job, Allyson!

Tennis Anyone?

We are big tennis fans! Can't really play the game, but we own several rackets and we have a multitude of tennis balls that prefer rolling down the street drain to sitting in our garage.

Right now we are into the
U.S. Open.
We usually follow the Women's tour, specifically Venus and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. When we were younger Allyson and I use to get out our rackets to take a hit at the tennis balls Dad threw our way. We dreamed of being like the William sisters-their tennis side mind you!
Tennis isn't exactly prime time TV, so we only watch big tournaments like Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
Tonight the younger William sister, Serena, was beaten by number one ranked Justin Henin, so we're now rooting for Venus to make it to finals.
We also keep up with ATP players like Andy Roddick, James Blake and Rodger Federer. I'm rooting for Andy to make it to finals in the men's bracket.
We always have a lot of fun watching the matches, it's one of the things we do as a family.
A fun note: My parent's first date was a tennis game. Well, Dad says it was more like a lesson. :c)
