Hi! My wife Lisa and I have a 12 year old boy named Jackson and a 9 year old girl named Lauren. Jackson's a sweet kid who loves math and science and is already way beyond me when it comes to computers. Lauren may seem shy, but ask her about animals, especially West Highland White Terriers, and she'll talk your fluffy little ears off!
Friday night is our family "Star Trek and pizza night," and we like to go for hikes and bike rides. On weekends I play ice-hockey with other old, slow guys, and I'm eager to take the kids to a Kings or Ducks game soon! Lisa and I are also the owners of 2 self-serve frozen yogurt stores, so we like to support other small business owners!
A formerly nice playground in southwest Pennsylvania has been closed until further notice because it is contaminated with chicken manure! There was a chicken-manure-truck spill just up the hill from the playground (happens all the time! They shouldn't build those things so top-heavy!). It was thought that the manure was cleaned up, but now every time it rains, well you can guess what happens!
Bird manure is known to carry many diseases, so this is probably for the best. Otherwise it would be "Oh, this white stuff? Don't worry kids! It's snow! Hey, let's make a fort!"
