Congratulations, Alysser! Well done!Quote:
It's an amazing feeling to know I am actually succeeding as a Science major with a 3.6 GPA overall
My dad has a bird feeder in the back yard and he and my mom enjoy watching the birds as they visit. (And the kitties too :rolleyes:) Today they saw a rose-breasted grosbeak (sp?) in the grass under the feeder. :)
I have a question for those of you who use an iPod. Fry's Electronics has the iPod Shuffle on sale for $45. I sit in an office at work with two other people. One has a radio that she sometimes plays for us, but not always. The office is super quiet and I just need some background music. I'm wondering ... should I go get the iPod? You pay by the song on iTunes, correct? Can I transfer songs from CDs onto iPod? An iPod would be an ideal solution because I could listen with ear buds. It would not disturb my other co-worker, who likes quiet. Should I save up for the iPod Nano, though? If you have an iPhone, does it also function as an iPod? I heard on the news that the iPhone is now the most popular camera in America.
And Taz Zoee, guess what song is stuck in my head again? Pink and Nate Ruess! I like that song sooo much!

On my way to work today I saw three 18-wheel trucks marked "Taylor Swift RED Tour 2013". Must have been taking her sets and equipment to the next tour stop. I know she has a date in Chicago in August ... I wonder where they were coming from, or where they were headed. I'm guessing Taylor Swift doesn't travel in an 18-wheel truck from city to city! I wonder if she has a bus like some stars do, or if she goes by airplane. She's so young and so successful. Lots of talent, that girl.
I saw it!
I heard on the radio yesterday that that really is happening: the cicadas are coming out after 17 years. I don't know any more about it.
I got about 20 feet away from one of the Bald Eagles at work today, great experience and made a bunch of 4th graders extremely happy!
I read in the newspaper that a company started selling T-shirts with "Chicago Stronger" printed on them, a take-off from the famous "Boston Strong". They quickly got complaints and stopped selling the T-shirts. They've said the profits from those shirts will be given to charity. I think that was the right action for them to take. What happened at the Boston Marathon was tragic, but many people responded quickly to help save others. There was a lot of strength shown in Boston that day and since. The company could have put "Sweet Home Chicago" or "Windy City" or something else on the shirts they sold in Chicago.
