Favorite Movies we all viewed in 2007

In order to make this list, all five Eby's must have seen this movie during the year it is nominated. There are a few movies that have been nominated by individual Eby's that were disqualified because they were not viewed by all of us.

For example: Spiderman 3, Amazing Grace, National Treasure 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks and other popular movies were seen by some but not all Eby's.

Here is the list for 2007:
  1. Ultimate Gift ( Carmen, Mom )
  2. I am Legend ( Adam, Dad )
  3. Evan Almighty ( Becca )
  4. Bourne Ultimatum
  5. Shooter
  6. Wild Hogs
  7. Astronaut Farmer
  8. Deja Vu
  9. Blood Diamond
  10. Surf's up

Bennigan's Restaurant ( Take 26 )

Every year since 1982, Jackie's friends from NorthWood High School have picked a restaurant in Northern Indiana to meet and catch up with each other between Christmas and New Year's Day. Mark and Michelle picked the Elvis room at Bennigan's this year.

This was one of the smallest groups, but we still had fun.

Fayette County Public Schools listed as #16

As a parent of three students in Fayette County Public Schools and a friend of many teachers in Fayette County, I was pleased to hear that Forbes magazine listed Lexington as one of the top 20 places in America to receive a public education.

Well done, Fayette County!

Forbes Top 20 Public Schools

Educators that attend Tatesbrook that are fighting the good fight in the FCPS:
  • Duane Keaton
  • Jordan Johnson
  • Mike Brady
  • Robin Potter
  • Ronnie Brock
  • Tony Jones
Since Jackie and other "stay at home" mom's often receive little performance feedback, I think this would also be a good time to recognize all the volunteers that help make the school systems better in our community...

Oh, we've got "T"rouble

Mothers of River City!
Heed the warning before it's too late!
Watch for the tell-tale sign of corruption!
The moment your son leaves the house,
Does he rebuckle his knickerbockers below the knee?
Is there a nicotine stain on his index finger?
A dime novel hidden in the corn crib?
Is he starting to memorize jokes from Capt.
Billy's Whiz Bang?
Are certain words creeping into his conversation?
Words like 'swell?"
And 'so's your old man?"
Well, if so my friends,
Ya got trouble,
Right here in River city!
With a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "P"
And that stands for Pool.
We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City!
Remember the Maine, Plymouth Rock and the Golden Rule!
Oh, we've got trouble.
We're in terrible, terrible trouble.
That game with the fifteen numbered balls is a devil's tool!
Oh yes we got trouble, trouble, trouble!
With a "T"! Gotta rhyme it with "P"!
And that stands for Pool!!!
