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!! :)

BUFFETT LUNCH

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Lunch with Warren Buffett has already soared into the seven figures. Bidding on a private meal with the legendary investor topped $1 million yesterday afternoon. The online auction benefits the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco. The winning bidder will get a chance to hear Buffett's advice on investing, philanthropy and life in general. Last year's lunch with Buffett went for more than 2.1 mil. Bidding on eBay for the Buffett lunch closes Friday evening.

NYC SCHOOLS-CONDOMS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Condoms will be part of the lessons in New York City public high schools. The city Board of Education says teachers will now be allowed to demonstrate condom use in high school health education classes. Parents will be able to opt of the lessons for their kids. New York high school students can get free condoms from their schools' health resource rooms. The Classic newspaper at Townsend Harris High School first reported the policy change.

BURGLARY ARREST-JUNK FOOD

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Junk food can be bad for your legal health, too. Iowa City police say they followed a trail of junk food away from a convenience store break-in. The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports officers responded to a burglary call and found someone had used a brick to shatter a glass door. They followed a trail of snack food away from the store and located 20-year-old Francisco Jacob Munoz about 100 yards away. Officers say his shirt was covered in nacho cheese. He now faces a number of charges including third-degree burglary.

MUIR WOODS-TALLEST TREE

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The tallest redwood tree in Muir Woods in California is just a kid. Scientists say the 249-foot-tall coast redwood named Tree 76 is 777 years old. It was once thought that the tree was 1,500 years old. Even at 777, the tree is just a baby compared to the huge old-growth trees farther north. The oldest giant sequoia, a redwood species that grows in the Sierra Nevada, is 3,240 years old. The San Francisco Chronicle reports researchers from Humboldt State University studied tree rings to determine the age of the giant trees.
