And the winner is....

Karl and his design teammates Michael and Paul received first place at the BPA (Business Professionals of America) high school regional competition in Seminole County tonight for their division...Web Site Design!

They will be gearing up for the state competition to be held here in Orlando in February, 2007. I have high hopes for them and hope they place at state. Nationals would follow in NYC in the late spring, 2007. Good luck boys!!!

What We Did For Chocolate...

Okay, so if you don't know me really well, you don't know that I have a really zany sense of humor! I laugh at a lot more things than the average person does. If you don't know this also, laughing creates endorphins and that creates better immune protection in your body.

With that said, I had several 50% off coupons burning a hole in my pocket! I "needed" to take care of that and the day was Sat. after Thanksgiving. We went out to dinner at T.G.I.Friday's and when driving out of the parking lot, Kent asked me if there was any place that I needed to go. (Knowing the stores usually close at 9 pm.) I said, "Well, as a matter of fact, there is!" I told him I wanted to stop at JoAnns to use a coupon and he said (jubilantly, I might add), "It's 9:06. They're already closed." To which I replied,"Holiday hours. They're open til 10!" (I won't say what Kent said next!)

I proceeded to pull out the coupons and cash. Then I said everyone needed to go in and that I had cash to go with the coupons for everyone. (***Droning noises***) All they needed to buy was a bag of chocolate for the new Chocolate Pro Chocolate Fountain I had purchased the week before. (You have to use this specific chocolate to make it flow easily.) So, I got out, went in, saw that they had enough for us and motioned them to come in. Kent and Sandy were the first and Teagan and KJ followed reluctantly. Karl, of course, was the last to stroll in ssllllooooowwwwwwllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

Anyway, I handed them each a bag and they went to the checkout counter where the two girls working were having fun watching everyone walk up with the same item. One said to me, "Neat way to buck the system!"

So, I said, I think this is a great place for a picture and got my camera out and snapped a couple. Well, the other employee said, "Here, let me take one of all of you."

Hence the above picture named "What We Did For Chocolate"!!!

Awe, come on, laugh!!! It's funny...or it will be when they see the picture in future years to come!!! (ROTFLMAO)
