Just a few odds and ends for you this week.
Went to see a movie this weekend. It's called "An Education." It's about a girl graduating from school in England in the early 60's. She meets a man who can take her to amazing places and give her amazing things. So, she must choose between college and the life he is offering. It stars Carey Mulligan who was outstanding. Frankly, I was dragged to it almost kicking and screaming. After all, there are no explosions or chases in it, so why would I want to go? But it was a very good movie. Well worth a trip to the theater or a rental when it comes out on DVD.
Did you watch the gold medal game in the Olympics? Even though the US didn't take home the gold, it was a great game. Joe Pavelski from Plover did us all proud!
I'm also happy to see Marquette has turned it around and now appears bound for the NCAA Tournament. They lost a lot of talent to graduation last year, so weren't expected to accomplish much in a rebuilding year, so it's a nice surprise. I heard coach Buzz Williams' interview on the radio after Sunday's game and have to say I really like him.
Here's another sign of spring. My "snowbird" neighbors who's house I watch while they're gone are due home today. It has to rank right up their with the first robin when we see these people who head south for the winter return come spring.
OK, that's about it. Pretty boring, huh? Hey we can't have a good debate on a controversial subject every week ;)
