Look what we woke up to today! Snow! It is still snowing, but I don't think that we will get too much today, it is only 16 out now, but should get up to about 25-30 today for our high. But by the 70s....

Fortune Cookie

So we are revising one of our classes at work, and the courses always begin with an introduction. We want students and faculty to get to know each other before they work together for several weeks. In this course we are revisioning we are having students open a virtual fortune cookie:

We say "Take a moment to infuse some “randomness” into your thoughts on the course…go to, and open a “virtual fortune cookie,” and tell us what it says. Next, see if you can tell us how the message might relate to what lies ahead of you in this class!"

So now I have an assignment for all of you "Take a moment to infuse some “randomness” into your Life…go to, and open a “virtual fortune cookie,” and tell us what it says.

I of course did the homework first :) I am nerdy like that

My fortune cookie says:
This life is yours. Some of it was given to you; the rest, you made yourself.

I believe I was given many gifts and I hope I am able to use them to make a great life for me, my family and my friends....

what does your cookie say?

Day of Patriotism

So last weekend, we went down to the Post Office to mail some letters and found that a couple of the streets were blocked off by this

Yup, that is a giant flag hanging off of a crane. So we decided to go check it out and see what is going on. Turns out it was some historical, military show.

They had a Huey from the Vietnam era

And an anti-aircraft vehicle too..

There were seats for two guys in that front hatch. I wondered how I would get in there. It looked like it was made of 12yr olds. There is no way I would have fit over both seats let alone sit in one.

Also downtown there is a museum, that you can only visit by appointment, that we had never been in before. We only got into one of the rooms due to all the people but they had a nice display of aircraft models.

They had a nice display board of all the wars that our country has been involved in, and I was surprised to see newspaper articles in there from Revolutionary times and lots of German artifacts from WWI and WWII, including a WWII era Germany motorcycle with sidecar and machine gun. I expect to see them in normal museums, but not downtown Ft. Morgan. Anyway, it was surprising to see the neat things tucked away in our town.

The Fort Morgan Times has an article on this
