On Watching the majestic eagle
Saw a bald eagle last Friday afternoon sitting atop a tree over looking the Rock River just south of UW-Rock County. I also have seen them flying over downtown Janesville from time to time. There is at least one nest within city limits, as well.
On Does Ticketmaster think we're stupid?
This is why I have pretty much stopped going to any show for which I cannot buy tickets in cash (at the bar/venue) ahead of time or walk up to the door and pay the cover charge. I enjoy finding bands that way, and watching them progress to larger and larger venues until they are playing places that use Ticketmaster and I no longer have an interest in going. :)
On Did you catch any basketball this weekend?
Dekker and Showalter should both have great careers for UW. Dekker has surpassed JP Tokoto of Menomonee Falls as the state's top player in the class of 2012. And getting Showalter as a walk-on?? That'll go down as a steal. On Wisconsin!
On Rotary Gardens hires new executive director
A fine choice!
On The Prince is gone...
I think his shirt reps the NY Football Giants. But still ... some interesting wardrobe choices going on there!
For a minute there I thought young Prince was modelling the Tigers' new unis for 2012 :)
On ECHO seeks contributors for Adopt-a-Family program
My wife and I have "adopted" a family for the past several years and will do so again this year. In the past we have dropped off the gifts at ECHO for staff to pass them along to the family. This year we are going to deliver the presents directly to the family, so that we see exactly who is benefiting from the program. We have always felt good about helping another family have a joyous holiday season; I expect that connecting a face to our donation will be pretty powerful.
On A very positive local purchase
We recently replaced our kitchen appliances. We found what we wanted online, then went to Rock County Appliance to get a quote. To our surprise, it was MUCH lower than anticipated and, as Steve said, there was no delivery fee. On top of that, RCA employs its own service staff locally, which none of the big-box stores can claim. RCA customer service was also top-notch -- as it turned out, the microwave we chose was back-ordered (and the date kept getting pushed back). Not only did RCA keep us updated as to when we would receive our microwave, they also made a separate trip to deliver/install the other appliances so we could use them while we waited for the microwave to arrive. As long as we live in Janesville, we will buy our appliances from RCA!
On Photo I took of Crash at Home Plate
On Swings and there it is...
I remember that game like it was yesterday. We didn't get cable TV way out in the sticks, so the radio was my window to the world. I also remember being insanely jealous the next morning, when a classmate who had attended the game and witnessed Yount's historic hit, walked into school wearing a T-shirt featuring the front page of that morning's Milwaukee Sentinel.
