oldies but goodies

How Arnold Schwarzenegger got votes.


I have to wonder what they meant by “scientific plan.”  McDonald’s?  Couch?


Teaching children to swim in pre-war Britain.


Fortunately, kids today have Flinstone vitamins.

Henny Penny

Claire and I read Henny Penny this morning.  So I just had to introduce her to my favorite version of the story by the               Golden Girls.

roller derby

I went to my first free skate with the dolls from roller derby (the players are called “dolls.”)  Muncie is starting a roller derby team called, “Cornfed Derby Dames.”  And, as so often happens, I felt like Lucy.  But I was able to keep pace with them and didn’t fall down.  Although, I think it’s more that you just need to be OK with falling.  I made it through three natural child births, so I think I’ve got what it takes.  : )  The girls were sweet and it was a lot of fun.  This clip shows how out of place I felt.  (Except that the dolls were really nice.)

Feeding Maebel is like having Bill Murray over for dinner every night of the week.  (mom, this one’s for you!)

Big day in the VanderHorst house.  I introduced Claire to a few numbers from Newsies.  What could be more fun than being a poor, child laborer?  If you have a choreographer in the house, that is.
