Feliz Cumpleaños

Yes, I just realized that my blog had it's 1st birthday! My first post was on March 30, 2010. In the last year I have had 17 posts ... I guess that is more than one a month although I think there was a whole bunch of posts right after our Disneyland/Temple trip because I definitely didn't post every month. I am going to try a little harder to post more often. I will try for once a week but if life gets busy who knows? My title this time comes from one of my favorite Primary songs ... “Feliz Cumpleaños,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 282 Merrily 1. “Feliz Cumpleaños,” (fay-lees coom-play-ahn-yos) That’s how they say it in Spain.“Fröhlicher Geburtstag,” (frer-li-sher guh-burts-tahk) In German it means the same.“Gratulerer med dagen,” (grah-too-lay-rare med dog-en) Norwegians say it too. But any way you say it,It means “Happy Birthday to you!” 2. They say in Samoa,“Manuia lou aso fanau.” (mah-noo-ee-yah low ah-so fah-now) “Tanjobi omedeto,” (tahn-joe-bee oh-meh-deh-toe) The Japanese say, and bow.“Saengilul ch’ukhahamnida,” (sang-ill-ool chewk-ha-hahm-nee-dah) Koreans say it too.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game ...

Basketball is winding down now that March and it's madness is over ... time to move onto baseball/softball (Go Dodgers!) Spent 19 out of 26 hours at the softball park on Friday/Saturday this last weekend. It's just nice to be outside. Of course, with our wacky Utah weather there was no softball on Monday night because of the SNOW! I told Teresa with concessions they need to get some peanuts and cracker jacks (as per my usual Title of a song/Title of Post). I'm sure by October we will be so over softball but for now it's a nice change. I guess I'll have to be looking out for some of those single guys that I can steer my friend Kayla's way ... on her blog"Why do all the nice, attractive, friendly guys have to be married already?! and why do i have to meet them?? can't i meet a nice, attractive, friendly SINGLE guy?" Don't worry Kayla, I meet lots of young, nice, attractive, friendly?, single guys down there (emphasis on young - too young for me!) I really need to make it to a Dodger game sometime ... could this be the year? I hope so.
