Welcome Fifth Day of Spring

On my way back from a church security conference in Frankfort today, I drove through rain, snow, sleet, and hail -- all in the same hour.  There's not much I can say about that other than thank the Lord I made it to Frankfort and back unscathed.

Welcome Fourth Day of Spring

It's the fourth day of spring, and we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow.  I'll be getting up early and driving over to Frankfort for church security training, and I'm not looking forward to facing the 4 inches of snow forecasted for Frankfort.  All I can say is Jesus take the wheel.

New Product Review

I had to pick up a few things at the store on the way home from work yesterday, and this bag of Laffy Taffy Jelly Beans caught my eye.  I love Laffy Taffy, especially banana flavored, so I knew I had to try a bag.  I'm glad I did.  

They aren't 100% jelly-like, as regular jelly beans, and they aren't taffy, either.  They're just good.  

And I am using all the restraint I have to not pour the bag out on my desk and pick out all of the banana ones and eat them first. 

Laffy Taffy Jelly Beans most definitely gets Two Thumbs Up from TWIT.  

Welcome Third Day of Spring

Here we are, the morning of the third day of spring. As I type this, it’s 23 degrees here at The Compound.  There are wrecks everywhere due to black ice. Yep, that sounds like spring time in the Ohio Valley.

Welcome, Second Day of Spring

TWIT would like to welcome the Second Day of Spring.  At the airport (the official precipitation point) they had 8 inches of snow.   Here at the Compound, we got maybe 3-4 inches.  But the best part of all was the fact that our old concrete driveway holds a lot of heat, so this morning when I got up there was not one flake of snow on the driveway.  That meant nothing to shovel.  Nuff said.

Welcome, First Day Of Spring

As I type this, we are under a Winter Storm Warning for our area tonight and tomorrow.  They are calling for 4 to 6 inches of snow tonight.  It started snowing at about 4:00 this afternoon, and it has been coming down pretty fast and furious.

Never fear.  We have plenty of provisions here at The Compound.  The Girls and us will make it through just fine.  If only we could get a snow day tomorrow like the school kids will probably get.

Happy National Poultry Day

My Girls and TWIT would like to wish everyone a very happy National Poultry Day. They said that gifts aren't necessary; just send them some leftover cornbread and they'll be happy.
