    Took my car in to get the AC worked on a week and half ago. Got a call saying the leak was in the dash an they had to take the windshield out to fix it. Unfortunately my windshield had a rock chip in it and would break if they take it out. Still waiting on them to put the new wind shield in due to it not being delivered. Good thing we can both get to work and back using one car.

    (*&&%$^&&*)($^%^$&%$ My wife is due to fly home from Germany Sunday arriving about 9:30 in the evening. And now we are expecting 5-12 inches of snow????
    I had originally set her itenary to come home on Saturday but no...she wanted to stay one more day with our daughter. Now if she cant make it back Sunday night she's in a real pickle because she's supposed to be back teaching Monday morning (hopefully they'll cancel school too).

    I'm supposed to take my Prius in Monday to have the splash shield under the car looked at. I tore it loose on a concrete traffic baracade (like they use in your parking space) It had been moved by a snowplow and was hidden under some snow. Unfortunately they will try to soak me for plenty and I'll tell them to take it off and leave it off. I'm sure they will have some silly reason why it's not safe to do that and they can't let me leave the lot with the car like that.
    I have a son who was a paint and body man so I will probably be forced to buy one from the Toyota dealer and have him put it on.

    Yeah, being Ukraine right now is not good. This could escalate real fast and not in a good way.

    BTW, It is 34 degrees here now. Not as cold as you all are, but it is still cold. Should be back in the 60's by week's end though.

    Random question: how does basketball progression work in this state, from the K-12 level?

    Let me explain said question. I know how the progression work for football: its Pop Warner, with an option to join a travel team around 10 years old, and gives way to middle school/junior high football, then high school football. I know how the progression works for soccer: it's usually some rec program until about 8 years old, and then there are travel academies until about 12, and then travel starts in earnest at 12, and then at 14-15, a player usually has a choice between high school soccer and hypercompetitive, representing-the-state travel.

    But how does this work for basketball? I'm just curious how things like Dads Club, CYO, etc. fit in to fill the gaps before you play high school or AAU ball. Honestly, for some reason, I don't know this, and none of my friends played serious enough ball to answer either.

    Usually sat morning YMCA leagues, Boys/Girls Club, but AAU starts VERY early like 5th grade or even slightly earlier with those heavily motivated.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Do you play AAU instead of high school ball, or can you play both? I would assume one operates one season, one operates another, but not sure obviously.

    Definitely both. AAU is mostly during the off summer months, HS basketball starts late fall and ends in March. (This week is actually Sectional week)

    I don't know if any of you guys watch SharkTank, but I just got my DDPYoga in the mail today. I've been searching for some kind of yoga twist, and couldn't really find something I liked until this. Hopefully it's as fun as it looks. I got introduced into yoga by taking a semi-required yoga class at BSU. (Had a list of 4-5 classes, had to take 2-3 of them)

    Ever done yoga? It is really fun. I recommend it to anyone. It's not tiring like running, and it doesn't just kill your muscles like lifting weights. It's just, different. And it works.

    Spent all day yesterday at Show Choir competition at North Central HS. Geezer Jr. is in his first year as director at Northridge HS (in between Elkhart and Goshen). That's quite an experience. To say people support their choirs is a great understatement. Anyway. He had the smallest choirs there and out of 11 schools they took 2nd place in both the women's and the mixed choir competition. Not only that, they also had the runner up in the Classical music solo and the over all Grand Champion soloist. (I smell scholarship money for some students). I know some will skoff at show choir (no, it is NOT Glee) but watch a performance and see what a physical workout they have.....all while singing perfectly...a slight mistake can cost you any chance at placing let alone winning.
    So happy for all the kids there.


    Show Choir.....if it were easy it'd be called football.
