(+) I heard this story this morning and I don't know if I find it heart warming or disturbing. It seems that a four year old boy left his home at 3:00 in the morning, walked across six lanes of traffic to get to a dollar store. He first tried one door, but it was locked. He then went to the second door and much to his surprise -or not - it was unlocked. He walked right in, tripping a silent alarm, and headed straight for the toys (my assumption). When the police arrived, they found him sitting among the toys, playing to his heart's content. (source)

(+) We have been experiencing frigid weather here in the Denver area. We broke a record the other day with an overnight low of minus nineteen. That was Monday and we didn't get above 5 degrees that day. Brrrr! It's warmed up a little each day since and we hit mid thirties today. It looks like we're getting out of Dodge just in time. The state will go into the deep freeze again this weekend. I'll be thinking about that as I'm walking on the beach in California [smile].

(+) I've entered a give-away over at Mile High Mamas that I would really love to win. They're giving away a Wii system along with the Wii Fit program. I've been hearing a lot about this system and the Fit program lately and I think it would be something I'd use. Anyways, I get extra entries by mentioning the give-away on my blog. So that's what I'm doing. Even though my chances of winning diminish if anyone reading this goes over and enters themselves. Oh well. It's all luck anyways.
Contest ends at noon, December 20th. For more info, go here.

disturbing!! definitely disturbing.

tooo stinkin cold!!

I take issue with giveaways online. I think it COULD be a ploy to get access to my physical address. I take even more issue with "swaps" for the same reason....all I'd have to do is enter a swap and send in a fake address.....then my address gets sent to some unsuspecting soul and I get an address in return, along with their blog to go and read all about them and their kids, the cool stuff in their house that they put up on Show and Tell, and so forth and so on. So fear not, I will not be lowering your chances at winning anything!!!!

Oh my...

And we had temps in the 60s on Monday - certainly NOT typical! I would have enjoyed it had it not been for the rain. Oh, and then we got snow on Tues that is still hanging around - CRAZY!

I've thought about that before - I blog about it to get myself more chances only to have people reading mine go and enter...oh well! Best of luck to you with winning!!

Cold here, too, but nothing like that and we've had no snow, just a little ice. Hope you win the Wii.

Karen said...

Yes, do think about those of us in the deep freeze this weekend! Your walk on the beach sounds lovely. Enjoy!

And good luck on winning the Wii!

I'm really not looking forward to the 2nd big chill this weekend, so I can come to Cali with you to carry your bags?

Promise you won't even notice I'm there...

Thank goodness they found the child safe and sound! That could have been disastrous. My kids have those doorknob thingies on all outside doors.

Good luck, I hope you win. I won't enter. It is probably only open for U.S. citizens.

I think I find that story a little disturbing! I can't believe it's been that cold there!! That's unusual isn't it?? It has been right around 45 degrees below zero here lately...that's with the wind chill. It's crazy! I hope you have a great vacation with your family in warm and sunny California :)

Oh California right now would be just the ticket! I'm jealous! ;-)

Have fun!

We were just up there, near Pueblo, last week. We must've left just in the nick of time. Going back NY's day. Hope it's a little warmer then!
Stay warm,
Brenda :)
