Me... Plan a Middle School Dance?

My Botball Club is hosting a dance for St. Patrick's Day. I have never done this before! There will be over 1000 kids at various times of the night. I am so nervous. I just ordered a mess of decorations online, and have the chaperones, the DJ, and the police. Parents will volunteer, kids will clean up, I will go crazy! I keep thinking...what could go wrong? Well, everything! But I must remain positive about the situation. We (the club) need the money. We have to pay back the school $1800.00 for our registration fee for the competition on March 29. The dance is the 20th! I hope it works out and everyone has a great time!

Night All~ Peace!

Sodom & Gomorrah Rediscovered

My mom and dad are regulars at Panera Bread. They run into people from time to time that strike up conversations with them. (Well, my dad, my mom doesn't speak because of her stroke.) Anyway, the other day, a young man started a conversation with dad about the iphone. The conversation led to the young man telling my dad that he works for a research company and that he was on an expedition that found what they think is the City of Sodom from the Bible.

He even showed my dad a sample of the sulfur balls they found there! Apparently, he keeps it in his car! This young man claimed to have even seen a pillar of salt (maybe Lot's Wife?) My dad was so enthralled with the story that he told me about it.
I googled Sodom, and found the article with photos of this discovery. (click on the title of my post and you will go to the article). I am curious to know if anyone out here has been to this site? Do you have photos to share?

I must have been under a rock... I just watched a previously taped episode of Paranormal State. It is on A & E. The kids were investigating the sightings of Mothman in West Virginia. It was right before the Silver Bridge collapsed in 1967 I think, that the Mothman was sighted. I had never heard of him before. I googled the Mothman, and wow! There is a lot of stuff out there about him. I am curious to learn more...

Has anyone any information for me about the Mothman? He is even featured on YouTube!

Two Surgeries in April

Wish me luck... I am going to have 2 procedures in April. One should be minor, and the other is the removal of my gallbladder. I am hearing that the gallbladder surgery should be okay. Recovery based on how well you follow doctor's directions.
My pain is almost gone. But the knowing that there are stones in there is really upsetting. I do not want to have that pain that I had before anymore!
