In keeping with tradition (for a change), here’s this week’s installment of “What I Learned This Week”:
#1… An optical mouse won’t work on a glass tabletop (not even if you tape a colored piece of paper to the underside of the tabletop to “trick” the mouse into thinking there’s a bottom!)
#2… We’re going to Arizona! …for Spring Training Baseball …in March
#3… Blogs can become inundated with Comment and Trackback SPAM!
#4… The folks at IX Webhosting are GREAT! (Had some server issues, and they bent over backwards to help us… like usual.)
#5… The way you know that the highway patrol is busting HOV-lane violaters is that the next-to-fastest lane (next to the HOV lane) comes to a complete STOP several times during rush hour traffic, while the other lanes are still poking along at a slow pace… and, it’s MILES before you actually see a police car. This is because all of the HOV violators are trying to cut back into the “legal” lane at the last minute — as soon as they spot the cop car — causing the rest of us to slam on our breaks quite often!
#6… More strangers than friends OR relatives actually view this site on a regular basis. …Who knew?!
#7… It’s amazing how bent out of shape your husband can get just by setting his alarm clock 15 minutes earlier in the morning — depriving him of that valuable 3RD SNOOZE!
#8… Carrot Top is funnier than most people give him credit for. (And for those of you who are wondering, he’s got a girlfriend.)
#9… Scented candles will not cover the smell of doggie diarrhea.
#10… Why is it that the read-out on a doctor‘s scale is ALWAYS higher than the read-out on your home scale???
#11… For the past year, I’ve had this great poster-sized calendar hanging on the wall by my desk at work (got it for free). Everyone who sees it asks where I got it. Now… it’s expired. But a co-worker likes it so much (and the fact that I gave him one just like it last year) that he CALLED THE COMPANY to see if he could get a couple of their 2005 wall calendars! (The only reason this is funny is the fact that it’s the company Jim used to work for.)
We moved from Florida to Tennessee in 2001. All signs point to the fact that we will probably retire here — by choice. We L O V E Nashville! Our favorite places to live are just south of the City — we’ve had houses in Brentwood, Franklin, and Spring Hill. And we have properties in Leipers Fork, Cookeville, and Lewisburg. This site is where I share my best tips for moving your family to Nashville and/or visiting Nashville for the first time — with the ultimate goal of helping you find fun things to do in Williamson County and Davidson County. When I’m not out & about enjoying the Nashville area, you’ll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I’ve written over 500 articles on this site! Many of them have upwards of 100K shares.
