Fireball - 08/25/14

  I don't know about you, but the start of school is kicking our collective bums.  Boy, has it been hard setting the alarm, sticking to a morning schedule, getting up and out on time, and having a consistent bedtime.

  Summer seemed to breeze by faster than I ever recall and here we are again... staring smack dab down the barrel of a new school year.

  What's helped us the first couple of weeks is a crazy little song with a catchy big beat.    It's called Fireball.    We are wearing this song out... It's our wake up call, it's our morning anthem, it's our carpool line crusade.  Hubs came in blasting the Pitbull tune the first day of school and everyone popped up out of bed, started dancing and we haven't stopped.  It seems to be the only thing that can get us going in the morning aside from coffee, but I can't give my kids that yet... (or can I?)

   Hope you enjoy coming along as we drop the kids off. (WATCH VIDEOS: Part 1 | Part 2)  We often have animal encounters (turkeys, deer, cows, horses) along the way as you'll notice in the video and as I've referenced in the previous blog Let Your Light Shine

    I'd love to hear how you're settling into a new school year ---- Any tips you have for smooth sailing in the morning or any healthy lunch ideas and of course any secrets to getting your crew up and moving.  Share your quirky moments with me on Facebook or Twitter @StacyCase_ 

     Here's to good grades and lots of laughs!! :)

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION-POLL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favor legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's "soaking in every minute" of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
