Posted: Monday, June 29, 2009 | Posted by Em | Labels: , , , , 0 comments

If you know anyone who would like a really neat educational experience, a new university is opening in Nauvoo this fall. Nauvoo University is a university with LDS standards located in historic Nauvoo, IL.

Type of Institution:
Nauvoo University is a coeducational private institution.
The institution will initially start as a semester study program.
The next step will be to become a two-year community college.
The final step will be a four-year university.

Nauvoo University is an independent, privately-funded university following in the rich educational tradition of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Brigham Young University, but not funded or operated by either of those institutions.

Nauvoo University offers a balanced education combining a classical liberal arts component with practical skills and training. The three current majors offered are General Education, History, and English, and will be expanded to others each year.

Nauvoo, Illinois, is a small rural town with a population 1,100. It is located on a bend in the Mississippi River in the Tri-State Area (Hancock and Adams Counties, Ill, Lee County, Iowa, and Clarke County, Missouri) with a population of 153,300 residents. The area includes Nauvoo, Carthage, Hamilton, Quincy, Keokuk, & Fort Madison.

I'm over 25. I guess it's time to grow up?

Wow. Read this blog post at Tomato Nation. I guess it's time for me to grow up (and learn to walk in heels). Some of it I happen to agree with, some of it is a little harsh. Thank you notes are a must! Proper etiquette really has gone out the window. It's time for Emily Post (or her granddaughter) to write a new book that includes the etiquette of cell phones, texting, emailing, etc. I just thought this was an interesting article.

The King of Pop has died. Thanks for Beat It, Billie Jean, Smooth Criminal, Bad, Thriller, Man in the Mirror and Black or White.

Music I'm digging right now...

I am really liking Diane Birch lately. Her song "Valentino" is the perfect peppy-folksy-poppy-song for the summer. It's a good driving song--if only I had a convertible...The rest of the album, Bible Belt, is good, too. But, as always, you don't have to take my word for it.

Of course it's not real fruit!

A California woman claimed she was deceived into buying Cap'n Crunch cereal during a four-year period because she thought "Crunch Berries" were real fruit. She sued the company for damages. Luckily the judge was smarter than her and threw out the case.

What kind of fruit did she think Crunch Berries were exactly? Dried um, maybe strawberries? Just another reason we need to put more money into our education system.

Full House: The Movie

Posted: | Posted by Em | 0 comments

Former sitcom star John Stamos confesses that he’s conceptualizing a “Full House” feature film. “I’m working on a movie idea, but it wouldn’t be us playing us,” he told NY Daily News. “I’m not 100% sure, but it would probably take place in the first few years” of the 1987-95 series.

The former “ER” doc votes for James Franco to reprise Stamos’ role as Jesse Katsopolis. “I see Steve Carell as [Bob Saget’s character] Danny Tanner and Tracy Morgan as [Dave Coulier’s] Joey Gladstone because he’s funny,” he added.

I'm not sure about this. Will Steve Carell be able to re-create the touching teaching moments at the end of each episode, you know the ones with the signature "you're about to learn something" music. I confess, I loved Full House as a kid. I even named my rabbit after D.J.

Anyone else think it's weird that Captain Moroni is now starring in Hair? It kind of disturbs me.
