I remember I used to think that it was a good idea to give people money when they asked for it on the street. It seemed like the charitable thing to do. Then, probably like most of you, I was introduced to the idea that people who are homeless are in that situation because they have burned bridges and that they will most likely take the money you give them to the liquor store. Still, it troubles me to just walk past someone who could potentially be in need.

Well, somewhere along the road someone introduced me to the idea of buying someone a meal when they asked for money for food. So I tried it once when I was going to U of M Flint.

There was this homeless black guy that asked me for money for food so I asked him if I could buy him lunch. He accepted and we waited in line in the food court at Subway. I would like to say that we ended up having a life-changing conversation or that I lead him to Jesus or something but nothing like that happened. Instead, as soon as we were . . . Read More..

Before there was fear factor on TV and before reality TV was even around.  You have our family.

In 1998, our family started a new gift giving tradition that some people call "White Elephant".  Its basically a pool of gifts and each person draws a number.  The first person chooses a gift and is stuck with it, but the next person may steal their gift or pick another.  The last person is in the best position.

Most of the gifts this year were pretty decent.  Barb, (Christmas Boss) just by chance got a couple of really crappy gifts and joke gifts.  One of which was some S.P.A.M and some pickled pigs feet.

Well after that I think my brother and my Uncle Dennis talked about how he would eat them for money.

This soon turned into all of the Brat Patrol (Me, Noel , Kevin , and Dan ) wanting a bunch of money to eat the pickled pigs feet.

I am sure some people really eat these things, but they stink like formaldahyde and vinegar or . . . Read More..

One time in our AP Biology class, our teacher Mr. Mandley had us discect a cat.

I am sure this is nothing new to most high schoolers and I guess this is a common memory among people going through school.

But I guess I will just explain some of the things I remember just for my own documentation of what went on.

We all gathered in groups of 4.  My group was Millicent , Jessika , and I cant even remember the 4th person that was in our group now.  I think it was another guy.  He was kind of in one of those other clicks if I can remember right.  He even used to play this Neo Geo handheld a bit in class.

Anyway, we got our corpse of a cat and we named him Quequog.  (After the character in moby dick).  Our cat wasnt just any old cat.  This fucker had the most obscure and large organs as well as skin that is as tough as a pigskin football.

We first had to skin the fur off of it and that I can recall took an entire class period.

The rest is just . . . Read More..

Our high school band had a competition in Tennessee and we all spent our spring break there I think our Junior year.

I cant remember the exact city we were in for the competition, but one thing I do remember was going up to a gun and knife store and buying a chinese star.

Eventually we brought it back to the hotel and threw it at the wall a bunch of times. 

It was a lot of fun, but we definitely could have gotten charged for it.  It was pretty dumb to throw it at the wall.

But it was really cool how it stuck to it with precision.

Jeff and I had just gotten married and it was the first morning home from our honeymoon. We had just moved  into our first  little apartment with a tiny kitchen and I decided I wanted to make breakfast for Jeff. I tried to cook eggs but since I had no experience with cooking they all got stuck to the pan. Jeff came in and laughed and asked if I put butter or oil in the pan to keep the eggs from sticking. "What?! You have to put butter on the pan?" I asked Jeff. He couldn't believe I didn't know that. Seriously, I had never cooked eggs, or much of anything in my life up to that point. Hey, people aren't born knowing how to cook eggs! I had one of those wonderful sets of parents that did EVERYTHING for me. Well, Jeff showed me the correct proceedure to use butter and THEN cook the eggs.
The next morning Jeff about died when he walked into the kitchen and I was trying to cook bacon in butter! Who knew bacon created its own non-stick
