I'm pretty excited for the Mackley Family Reunion this year. I haven't been able to attend very many of these in my life; I remember one in Yellowstone Park, one at Red Fish Lake, Idaho, Tony Grove, Utah, Reunion Flats, Wyoming, and one in Victor, Idaho at a KOA. Jared is 14, and I don't think we've been to a reunion since he was born. Oh, wait! We did have a get-to-gether for Christmas at Aspen Grove near Sundance Ski Resort. I think that was in 2002, maybe. Anyway, I'm excited to go.

Slideshow Mania!

Okay, so maybe I'm getting a little carried away with the slideshows. The one I posted to my Facebook wall has music. I'm feeling so clever!

Having fun with Slideshows

So, I thought I would show all of my little apple decorations that have been part of my kitchen decor for many a year. I used to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and I really enjoyed making the room my own. This house in St. George has got that "great room" thing going on, so it's like everyone is in the same big room all the time. It is a big room and the apple stuff gets a little lost. Someday I'll have my own house again, and I'll put up an apple border. Maybe get a red stove and fridge. I saw them in a magazine. They were cool.

My Kitchen

Still Learning

It's taken me a while, but I created a slide show of a few pictures from our big vacation to Hawaii and posted it here. I just want to learn how to do all this stuff. It's actually fairly easy... but time consuming. And works great as long as the computer will do the downloading. The computer is really the hold up. I'm going to have to work on our computer at home and see if I can get it to go faster. There is no hope for my computer here at work. It just has too many programs on it. Overworked and underpaid, just like me! Ha! That's why I had time to learn how to make a slideshow!

Talk Radio Guys

I love Dennis Miller. I can't believe what a great job he did singing, "You Are So Beautiful," to Helen Thomas. That was the highlight of my week! It drove me crazy to watch Sean Hannity when Colmes was there, but his new effort at throwing a bit of humor into the mix makes it more palatable. I haven't seen or heard Glenn Beck for a while. The radio show is too early in the morning, and the TV show comes on at 5pm right when I'm doing dinner. Has he said anything worthwhile lately? I only get to hear Rush for a few minutes when I drive to the District Office to pick up the mail around lunch time. He's been kind of boring lately.

Hope, Hope, Hope...

We followed this ice cream truck for many miles. We didn't want to go around it, in case it broke down!

This is a test

So, I'm new to this blog thing and so this first entry is a test to see how this is going to look and do I really want to do this.
I realize I should have some reason for writing this... like my winter weight loss chronicle (boring) or recording the epic of our challenges (don't want to dwell on them), so what to write about?
