    Never Too Old to Play in the Snow

    Winter is finally arriving. One of the best parts about winter is a fresh snowfall. It is so beautiful...especially if you don't have to get out and drive in it. And kids aren't the only ones who love to play in the snow. In spite of already living through 100 winters, Albina Foisy from British Columbia is still a kid at heart when it comes to snow. When the snow started coming down on a road trip with her son, this 101-year-old woman couldn't contain her excitement. When he pulled the car over to enjoy the snow, she jumped out and gleefully started to make a snowball. And wouldn't you know it, she still has a pretty good throw! Watch this heart-warming video as she proves that you're never too old to play in the snow. [video=youtube_share;f8PxZEZKTKo]https://youtu.be/f8PxZEZKTKo

    10/17 What I Learned This Week

    Although I have been gone on vacation for a few days, I did see your comments on this thread yesterday. (Sometimes it would be really good to be able to escape work) You are not being ignored or punished. We have been discussing your concerns and are working on a solution. When you have concerns like this, it is helpful if you start a discussion thread in the Site Feedback forum. We do have the opportunity to read every post on every thread on the site, so many times this type of discussion gets buried when posted in the middle of a thread. So please, start a thread about this and we can discuss it further.

    Lady Gaga and the Sound of Music?????

    Did you watch the Academy Awards show last night? For me, the biggest shock of the night was Lady Gaga singing a medley of songs from The Sound of Music!!!!!!! My goodness. I didn't know she could sing......i mean REALLY SING. Maybe I'm a fuddy duddy. But I am not a fan of Lady Gaga. I guess I never really listened to her that much, mainly due to the flamboyant "get-ups" (as my mom would say) that she wears and her diverse and sometimes weird performances. I mean....she always strives for the shock factor. When she walked out on the stage looking like a normal person in normal clothes.......actually she looked beautiful with normal make-up and hair and a beautiful long flowing white dress.......I kept waiting for her to turn this tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies into a farce. But she opened her mouth........and out came a beautiful sound.......music. I was totally stunned. It was simply beautiful.....one song after the next. I thought......she must be lip syncing. But no.....it was actually her. I think I had my mouth open in awe the entire time I was listening to and watching her. When Julie Andrews came out on the stage to a standing ovation, you could tell she was really touched by what she and everyone else had just witnessed. It was truly amazing. I have a whole new respect for Lady Gaga. I decided to read more about her..... how Stefani Angelina Germanotta became Lady Gaga. She is certainly a talented woman. Just goes to show....you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. (I still wish she didn't feel the necessity to elicit shock every time she performs. Why can't she just use her God-given talents in a more conventional way? I guess she wouldn't be Lady Gaga.)

    Trivia of the Day

    Valentines Day Trivia 15% of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day. 73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine's Day are men, while only 27 percent are women. About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year. That's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas. About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets. California produces 60 percent of American roses, but the vast number sold on Valentine's Day in the United States are imported, mostly from South America. Approximately 110 million roses, the majority red, will be sold and delivered within a three-day time period. Cupid, another symbol of Valentines Day, became associated with it because he was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love and beauty. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards holding a bow and arrows because he is believed to use magical arrows to inspire feelings of love. Hallmark has over 1330 different cards specifically for Valentine's Day. Humorous valentines of the 19th century were called "Vinegar Valentines" or "Penny Dreadfuls." Vinegar Valentines were introduced in 1858 by John McLaughin, a Scotsman with a New York City Publishing Business. Penny Dreadfuls with comic designs drawn in 1870 by American cartoonists Charles Howard became known as Penny Dreadfuls. In the United States, 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine's Day with their sweethearts. Valentine's Day is big business. Consumers will spend an average of $77.43 on Valentine's Day gifts this year. E-commerce retailers expect to rack up about $650 million in sales of food, candy, flowers, and other Valentine's Day gifts. Of that amount about $350 million will be for gifts and flowers and another $45 million will be spent on food (including chocolate) and wine.

    Trivia of the Day

    On this day in 1914, the dedication ceremony for the soon to be built Lincoln Memorial was conducted. We're not sure if it was intentional, but this was also Honest Abe's birthday! The plans for erecting the monument were unfortunately fraught with disagreements and difficulty. Many proposed the memorial be a simple log cabin as they declared the temple-like design was too over the top for a humble man like Lincoln. Others felt the site location was too swampy and inaccessible. The list goes on, but thankfully construction was finished right on schedule and Lincoln Memorial was officially dedicated on May 30, 1922.
