Unusual Name

I heard on the radio today a story about a lady in Louisiana that is upset because her daughter's name is being mispronounced. The daughter's name is spelled La-a. How would you pronounce this? .....

According to the mother, "the dash ain't silent".

Personally, I think this is ridiculous. Are we really supposed to pronounce the punctuation now? I am all for giving children unique names, but you can't be stupid about it.

Made My Day Better

I have had two really crappy days in a row at work and this afternoon my sister sent me this pic of my nephews. Between the pic of my nephews and shooting 200 rounds at the gun range on date night, my day has finally gotten better.

Ok, I admit it, I am a Gleek. Tonight's episode was about saying goodbye as they graduate, but Kurt's dad made me laugh so hard. Hubby laughed so hard he had tears rolling down his face. He did a performance to Beyonce's "Single Ladies."

Walk In the Park

Hubby and I were out for a walk in the park hoping to find some blackberries. Unfortunately, the squirrels beat us to the blackberries, but we did have a great walk in the park. Below is a couple of pictures I snapped while we were out.  The first is a memorial to fallen war heroes and the other is a butterfly I thought looked really pretty.

Pennsylvania Boy Urinates on Computers

The DJ's on the radio this morning were talking about a news story out of Pennsylvania where an 11 year old boy urinated on a cart full of school computers causing $36,000 worth of damage.  On the radio, everyone seemed to be focused on the fact that the computers were left on an unattended cart.  My question is why would the kid do something like that?  Was he ticked off at the school or teachers for some reason?  He is clearly at an age where he knows better, so what made him think that urinating on a cart full on MacBooks was a good idea?  And how come no one saw him?
