archaeological dig

I've never been on an archaeological dig.

I learned about an opportunity to be a part of one this summer. Located outside of San Antonio at Rancho de las Cabras, Floresville, Texas, there are three FREE dig days being offered! Saturday June 13, Saturday August 29, Saturday October 3 from 8:30 am- 2:00 pm is a great chance to dig for fossils and artifacts! This is sponsored by the UTSA Center for Archaeological Research and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park at this 18th century Spanish Mission Ranch. There is also a scout day being offered in November. Ages ten and up are allowed, with those sixteen and under requiring adult supervision and one adult per every three children. You need to bring your own lunch and snacks, water and digging tools will be provided.

Call 210-932-1002 ext 223 or e-mail for more
information and to reserve your spot!

high school cafeteria

I've never been to a high school cafeteria.

At least not as an adult. My son talks about how crowded and noisy it is. He talks about the occasional fight. He tells of the short amount of time allowed to eat. And knowing the menu selection is probably enough of an appetite suppressant for me that I would not want to eat much of what is offered. I guess it's no wonder he comes home starving most days. I just wish I could send a nice healthy lunch every day that he had time, space and desire to enjoy.

College of the Mainland Triathlon

I've never been in the College of the Mainland triathlon.

I was training to do this event this year, but things don't look like they will fall into place for it. The tri takes place at College of the Mainland in Texas City on May 28, 2009. Online registration is closed.

This year marks the 11th Annual Combat Triathlon which benefits the College of the Mainland Scholarship fund. The Race Distance consists of a 300 yd swim, 15 mile Bike, and 3 mile run. The swim takes place in the college pool. I talked with a sixty year old lady at the gym who is signed up to compete in this year's race! Maybe next year I'll be able to join in. And I sure hope that I am still training and competing when I'm sixty!

hospital while traveling

I've never been to the hospital while traveling.

I do know several people who have had to visit a doctor, dentist, or emergency room while traveling. I think it would be a scary thought, but know that in an emergency, it would be required. Another scary thought, whether traveling or not, is having
no medical life insurance. If we could just find a way to pay for it, that would be great!

I've never been to Facebook.

That's right, Facebook. I have had four or five people invite me. I am just not interested right now in having to keep up with "social networking", though I know I would enjoy seeing others photos. I guess technically I've been to facebook since I got on my husband's account last night to watch a video he had received. So maybe one of these days they will eventually get me to join. For now though, I am happy being one of those who have not been to facebook. Maybe I can hold out a while longer....

buying ephedrine

I've never been to buy ephedrine.

I just learned that some forms of it are no longer available. I did found out though that it is being reformulated to come into compliance with regulations. It is hoped to have the same strength and effects as it formerly did. Stated goals include:

~Comes with a Double Your Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee (including S&H)
~Help You Lose 3-5 Pounds Per Week
~Produce Intense Euphoric Feelings

You can stay updated on the progress of the reformulation. Date of re-release is Sept. 2009

Boston Marathon

I've never been to the Boston Marathon.

I was hoping we would have been in Boston at the time it was run, but we missed it by a month. While at the gym the other day I saw a trainer wearing a Boston Marathon shirt. I also overheard her talking about running in Boston's Marathon. What an experience! And it wasn't the first time she has run it. We were able to see it on television. It was a great race and the American male and female both came in third. Hopefully an American can win in the next year's race.

Biggest Loser Ranch

I've never been to the Biggest Loser Ranch.

Just think about it...working out all day long. Someone to cook healthy meals for you. Personal trainers. Getting personalized work out plans. Learning new healthy lifestyle changes. Time to focus on yourself. All those last chance work outs. Forget the diet pills. The Biggest Loser Ranch is a place for real weight loss!

Houston Art Car Festival

I've never been to the Houston Art Car Festival.

This unique parade of over 250 cars-turned-mobile-art is one of the Orange Show's biggest draws. The Art Car Festival began in 1984 and has become an outreach to the community to send the message that art is for everyone and is an integral part of our life and community. And it's just plain fun!

This year's parade will take place on May 9 on Allen Parkway between Taft and Downtown. The parade begins at 1pm on Saturday. If you want a sneak peek at some of this year's new mobile art, come to Discovery Green (1500 McKinney) on Friday, May 8 at 6pm. You can see art car film on the main stage and enjoy live music, art and entertainment throughout the park. Though the time to enter an art car in the parade has passed, there is still time to volunteer in the fun family event. And if you can't make it to the sneak preview, you can still check out photos from last year's parade . It looks like a fun time for all ages. Both the parade and the sneak preview are free!

Wilderness Trek

I've never been to Wilderness Trek.

I just paid for my son to go to this summer outdoor experience. It is more than camp. It is a time for teens to stretch themselves both physically and spiritually. It is a group building and bonding adventure at the same time that it challenges the individual teen.

Groups will participate in rappelling, white water rafting, and mountain climbing while learning more about God and depending on him. I hope and pray that this will be a life changing experience for my son.
