Font Poll

Ok, I'm back! It's been a long time since I've blogged, but I want to get back into it and make it a regular practice. So, here's a quick one and I could use a little help from you.

It's a poll. Which of the following fonts do you like best? I'm not going to give you any specifics about how they're used or anything like that, I just want to know which ones you like best. Leave me your top 3 in the comments section. Thanks!

Morning Scenery

As the days get longer I am enjoying my drive to work more and more each morning. Right now the sun is usually rising as I'm driving so I often get to enjoy colorful skies. This morning I was running late so the sun was already up, but I spotted a different kind of scenery. As I was driving I spotted a large bird in a tree right by the road. I figured it was a hawk, but as I got closer I realized it was an owl. I've only seen an owl once or twice in my life (not counting zoos) so it was pretty cool. Then I realized that I had my camera with me and decided to turn around to see if it was still there. It was and so I pulled off the side of the road and got a few shots before it flew away.

After a little bit of research I discovered that this is a Spotted Owl. Enjoy.

*Edit: This is not a Spotted Owl, it is a Barred Owl.

Weiss Family March Madness Challenge - Final

Well, I skipped the update after the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament because everything, including the final order of finish, had been decided on the first weekend. Katie will win, I will finish second, David will finish third and Hanah will finish fourth.

Congratulations, Katie. Woopee.

BUT, there is something I'm excited to share with you. I have made an incredible comeback in the Nappanee Missionary Church tournament challenge on I was in 14th place out of 19 players after the first weekend but have slowly been crawling up the leaderboard since. The rules in this challenge include increasing points with each round of the tournament.

So, with one game left, I am currently in third place and will win if North Carolina wins. I can finish no worse than third.

I still can't believe that I actually have a chance to win this thing. Let's go Tarheels!!!!!
