Name this city...

**Edit** The answer is Denver!
You all guessed right.
Cool picture, eh?
Click on the image to enlarge.
Ok, what is your guess?
I will give two hints.
1. This is a city in the US.
2. This picture is of "that" city in 1898.
Happy hump day!

The Iron Bowl

Yes, today is the day that an unbelievable amount of people in the state of Alabama have been waiting for all year....The Auburn /Alabama game ~ The Iron Bowl.
This is apparently the biggest most important day of the year!!!
It doesn't matter which team has had more wins or losses during the year, the winner could be either team.

I grew up an Alabama fan...went to numerous games, had all the "Alabama paraphernalia", even went to two maybe three Sugar Bowls in New Orleans. My brother, one year ahead of me in school, went to the University of Alabama.

I went to Auburn University. My senior year in high school, I spent the weekend visiting my friend, toured the campus, and made the decision to go to Auburn..."War Eagle!"
Two years later, I persuaded my younger sister to attend Auburn University.
So, we had a split family.
I was now a die hard Auburn fan...well, I did go to school there!
Years later, I lived in South Florida. No one cared about college football there. (Well it was not the same kind of huge fan base as in Alabama).
The Miami Dolphins (pro ball) was what it was all about.

Then several years later, I moved back to Birmingham.
The job I took was filled with Alabama fans.
The President of my company had played football for Alabama.
That is when it happened....
That is when I completely lost interest for the game. My co-workers showed me a side of Alabama fans that was not good. The Alabama fans were cut-throat!
These were my friends/co-workers. This made me realize it was not fun anymore. These people were over the top! It became apparent they took the game so seriously that they made it miserable for anyone else whether Alabama won or lost!

So, to this day....I don't care who wins or loses. It is just not fun anymore.


Hope your team wins if they have a game today!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a few things I am thankful for...
Howard, my family, my friends, my pets, my health, my job, and so much more.
As "Hotboy" and Rob would say, what a fortunate creature I am!
Tell me something you are thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Love to all,

The boys backs

Most of you already know that when I work out at the gym, I prefer to do it in the Cardio Cinema room (theatre) the lights are dim and there is something to watch on a big screen.

I got a wonderful Ipod for my birthday and now I don't know how I ever worked out without it (thank you Howard).
Now, that I have my Ipod, I still like to workout in the theatre. They usually have a good movie showing, but not this morning. I did not recognize any of the actors and it seemed strange. The majority of the actors were young (high school age). They apparently were bad kids doing something illegal. So I lost interest in the movie and focused completely on the music playing in my ears.

The theatre room was not too crowded, 1 other girl and 4 guys.
I was on the back row of treadmills, the girl was next to me. Three of the guys were directly in front of me and the 4th guy on the other side of me. The girl left a few minutes after I started working out. Unlike me, none of the guys were out of shape in the least little bit.

All of the sudden John Cougar Mellencamp was singing Authority Song to me. As I was looking in front of me, I noticed the guy in the middle was running to the exact beat of the song...the whole song. The guy to his right was doing a fast walk and the guy to his left was jogging and were not on beat.
I wasn't interested in the movie so....
...and they were in front of me, so it was hard to miss...

The next song that came bursting through my earphones...Sexyback!
Then...Walk Away.

I told you guys before that I want to sing out when I am listening to the Ipod, but I restrain myself.
I did look down to check my heart rate. When I looked up, I guess I was singing (not outloud, but just to myself) and the guy on the left was getting off the treadmill and we looked at each other....I was busted! Thankfully I was aware that I was not singing out loud. How embarrassing would that have been!
Oh well, it was a great workout.

It was also the first morning to walk outside soaked from the sweat (oh wait, am I supposed to say glisten) to a temperature under 30*F.....brrrrrr!
Actually this first glimpse of cold weather is nice, can't wait to sit all cozy with Howard in front of the fireplace with a nice glass of wine!
Have a great weekend everyone!

On my way home from the gym... the morning. Yes, a new workout time and a new view....the moon instead of the sun!

Ahhhh, the sun is just coming up by the time I get home.

Now, I gotta run....get a shower and get dressed, put on my makeup, grab my lunch (thank goodness I get it all together the night before, usually salad with grilled chicken), jump back in the car and head off to work.

Now I am wide awake which lasts through a couple cups of coffee and a few hours, then I am ready for a nap. It'll be all right, I will make it through the day, especially if my work gets real involved.... my day will fly by.

Have a great weekend!
