No one can prepare you. We got lots of well wishes when we found out we were going to be grandparents. Everyone said grandkids would change our lives, that we would love it, that it is better than being a parent! And we tucked those comments away and waited for our babies to be born.
We are two months into this adventure of being grandparents and I have to say, it has been a real "game changer" for us. We had Gwendolyn and Gabriel together for the first time last week. Oh the joy! The cuteness! And the deep, deep happiness that comes from having grandbabies.
We had a lovely dinner at the Barn Door with the whole family. The babies were so quiet through the whole dinner! I don't remember my kids being that good! We went shopping and out to eat several times and those babies never cried! How is that possible? Could it be that Mike and I never let them? Could it be that we picked them up with the first squeak? Could it be that Mike and I always had a baby in our arms? Maybe…
How's this for a "class project?" Three students at MIT hacked an ice cream maker & a 3-d printer to "print" ice cream into a star. Whoa! Technology is awesome. Here's the full story "We scream for ice cream."
Tyler Farr just bought 32-acres an hour north ofNashville with a log house that's next door to Jason Aldean. He saw it 5-years ago and hoped one day to own a home like that. Tyler says his bachelor pad will be classy with a rustic lodge, vibe.
It might not be that big of a surprise that the technical side of the radio business means you have to deal with a lot of cables, and anybody who has ever had to roll up an extension cord or something similar knows that it gets kinked up almost as soon as you start rolling it. However I learned a super secret technique of rolling cables that prevents those kinks. I learned it way back in High School when I was helping run a sound board for the local community theater by some old wise man with a big beard. It's called the "Over-under" technique and while I was trying to teach it to a coworker here at the studio I cam across a tutorial that teaches it way better than I or even Mr. Beard ever could.
With this information in hand go forth and roll cables as they were meant to be rolled!
Kenny Chesney's making a record right now but Aug. 16 he'll do his only show this year and it's free at the Flora-Bama Lounge & Package Bar, between Floridaand Alabama. Check here on how to get show wristbands.
I had a go cart growing up, and I was pretty good at driving it. Definitely better than brother and sister and some of the kids around the neighborhood. However that cart was more for driving around fields in rural Texas, not going around the race track... and this kid puts any skill I thought I had growing up to shame. This kid puts most adults who think they have driving skills to shame.
If you're a fan of the show "Top Gear" than you know that kid could easily pass as The Stig's son. Although he is not, he is just the son of the guy who owns that go cart track... and he has obviously picked up a thing or two. I really really hope he becomes a professional racecar driver when he is older because I want to see somebody place first, then spin, reverse park, and walk away like a boss... like a real life Ricky Bobby. Here is to your future career little guy... you're awesome.
