JFK assassination site

I've never been to the JFK assassination site.

While I've been to Dallas several times, I've never made the trek to the Book Depository and the surrounding area. Right now though I am reading a book that is putting me in the center of that. I have even been dreaming about the historical event. Maybe one day I will make it over to see the real sights surrounding the assassination site.

That I'd like to see.

vlc download

I've never been to get a vlc download.

I see that there are uses for the everyday video-phile as well as for professional users, developers, even anime fans. I see that there is experimental support for Blu-Ray discs. There is reworked support for Mac and web interface and it's free for Windows users!

flying to OKC

I've never been to fly to Oklahoma City.

But after getting back from my most recent trip, I am wondering if it isn't going to be cheaper to fly to OKC next time. If I go by myself, I think it will be, with the price of gas rising so high so quickly. My next planned trip is in April, but my husband will be going too. I think with two of us it's still cheaper to drive, but if only one person is going, I am definitely going to look at flying into OKC.

gazebo wedding

I've never been to a gazebo wedding.

Outdoor weddings are just hard here. It gets hot so early in the year and there are always mosquitoes. My husband will be doing a gazebo wedding in a few weeks. (I hope they don't face any of these pitfalls!) I am seeing a new trend too in some of these outdoor weddings. Instead of a full gazebo, there are Pergola structures, which are basically like an arbor or an arch with slats instead of a roof. I think these will be just as pretty. Now if they can just come up with something to fight off the heat and mosquitoes....

That I'd like to see.

Rodeo Cookoff

I've never been to the Rodeo Cookoff.

But it is a big event taking place now in Houston. There are all kinds of foods being submitted for the cookoff, in particular barbecue. Our neighbor is a sheriff and he is working the cookoff this week. I told him to be sure and bring home enough for everyone. And today he knocked on my door and brought us a plate full of some delicious smelling barbecue! I know what we are having for dinner tomorrow! And now I get a taste of the cookoff without having to leave home!

That I'd like to see.

basement flooring

I've never been to get basement flooring.

That's because we don't have a basement. I do know folks north of us who do have basements. Many have turned these into living areas. Because basements can be prone to letting in moisture, I hear basement flooring tiles are a good option. I wonder just how well they stand up to moisture. I wonder if these tiles are a good alternative for bathroom flooring?

I've never been to a superbowl.

The last two years I have not even watched any of the airing of it at all. And after this year, I really don't think I am missing anything. I heard it was the most viewed event ever. But from my family I heard the game was boring, the commercials weren't even good and I heard from the news about the halftime show. Not something I think I would have liked to have seen. I am glad I spent my time grocery shopping during the superbowl. At least I got something productive done!

That I'd like to see.
