Six for Saturday

 If you are local and looking for something fun to do today, you can check out Circleville Pumpkin Festival.  It has tons of pumpkins--some are freaking huge!  It has the world's largest pumpkin pie.  Oh, and pretty much anything you can think of to eat is made with pumpkin.  There are also rides and shows.  It goes from 10 AM to 11 PM.

We have a change to report.  Michael is half way through his second quarter of school and doing good.  Although, after taking some classes this quarter that introduce Network Administration, he has decided it is not for him.  In his words, "It's a little dry".  While taking classes for Network Admin, he had to take a class that was part of the Interactive Media degrees.  It's all still related to computers, but was much more creative and less "type in these codes" type stuff.  He found that he enjoyed it much more.  So after a closer look at the Interactive Media degrees, we stumbled upon Digital Video and Sound Major.  We aren't really sure why we didn't see this earlier, but this sounds exactly like Michael and his interests.  (We might night have stumbled upon it, because we aren't completely sure what kind of job you get with this degree.  However, the options seem endless.)  So after meeting with his IMMT teacher, who happens to be the head of the Interactive Media department, he switched majors.  Luckily, most of the classes he has already taken will count.  He will finish at the same time as he would have.  The bonus is he only has one more math class instead of the three he was going to have to take.  Praise the Lord!

 Again, if you are local, I invite you to come check out One Church Columbus.  There is another preview/pre-launch service tonight at 6 at Cornerstone Academy.  We'll be there!

Yesterday Michael and I were able to take in a matinee.  We chose to see Life As We Know It.  The previews looked pretty funny, and it looked like something we'd both enjoy.  I did enjoy it.  It was cute.  Sadly, it wasn't nearly as funny as I thought it was going to be.  Once again, most of the funny parts were in the previews.  Even still it was a cute romantic comedy of sorts.  I didn't hate that we spent $4.75 to see it.  I might have been made if we paid $9.50.
 Remember when we bought our new car and I gave you the tour?  I pointed out that our tire air pressure caps were these cute little Ohio State ones.  Well.... we found out this week that this is bad, bad, bad.  The little signal came on in our car that one tire had low tire pressure.  Michael went to fill it up and could not get the cap off.  He took it to Tire Discounters where we buy our tires and they said they would not take them off because they would break the sensors.  Apparently you are only suppose to use PLASTIC caps and not MEDAL caps.  Grrr....  We took it to our usual place for an oil change and they basically said the same thing.  Our next step is back to the dealer.  We haven't had time to do it yet, but we are hoping that they work with us to fix the problem.  I don't want broken sensors.  Lesson learned.  Go plastic!
