  13. My Mommyisms: -If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you jump too! (At the time, yes I would have!) -Get up, you'll feel better! (No matter how sick I was, that was her mantra. She had 8 kids, so we couldn't lay around sick, so she made us get up and move around. And gave up Pepto-Bismal for everything!) -We're not made of money!

  17. Kathy Lee-I hope everything works out but you want to be sure. My mom had some severe back pain and it turns out she has lymphoma. An MRI picked it up and she is finishing her radiation treatments. Luckily it doesn't seem to be anywhere else. (And I've had my mammogram already this year, because I have a very good friend with stage 4 breast cancer at age 51.
  18. Happy Birthday, Beth! Hope you have a great day!
  19. Football for me! I remember watching the Packers on Sunday afternoon in the 60's with the championship teams and the first Super Bowls! I've grown to appreciate baseball as I've gotten older. I played tackle football till I was 13, and too old to play anymore. I've impressed more than one guy passing a football. (We also played softball too. But I never grew up watching it.)

    "Your Hometown!"

    My hometown is Beloit,Wisconsin. Also known as "The Gateway to Wisconsin" because it is on the Wisconsin/Ilinois border along I-90/I-39. The population is about 36,000 people. It's the home of Beloit College, The Angel Museum (Oprah had hers on display here for awhile.) It's a racially diverse town. Fairbanks Morse (part of Goodyear now), brought many African Americans to work in the factory in the 20's and 30s. We've also seen increasing numbers of Mexicans. We have had more problems with violence as gangs and drugs make their way here. (Because we are on the interstate, things filter through here going north.) The town just to the north of us tends to look down for the problems we have. There is a lot of good things in Beloit, not just bad. We have a Class A minor league team for the Minnesota Twins. (Used to be for the Brewers). We have a rejuvinated riverfront where there are concerts, and our annual music festival, Riverfest. We are within 2 hours of Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison. I guess that all. Hope that gives you an idea about my hometown
