Okay, I think this is hysterical.  The kid on the lawnmower is actually my 12 year old nephew who wrote and directed this clip.  Make sure you have the sound turned up:

Book Review: Nights In Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks

Nights in Rodanthe
Nicholas Sparks

Truth be told that when I first picked this book up at the library a few weeks ago I had forgotten that it had come out as a movie only a year or so ago starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane.  Once at home the realization hit me and I thought, oh great, a romance novel.  What was I thinking?

However, I had just finished reading The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb and after reading such a deep and disturbing novel I thought, what the heck, I'm going to read Nights In Rodanthe.  I didn't think I would get past the first chapter.  Truth be told I was pleasantly surprised.  This book was more than a love story between two people.  There was an actual lesson to it.  This book was a fairly quick read and I was quite impressed in how Mr. Sparks was able to get to the point of the story while still painting a perfectly detailed picture within the pages.

Daylight Savings began last night at 2 a.m. What's your favorite part about gaining an extra hour in your day? Least favorite?

I live in Arizona and we stay the same year round.  Only the Navajo Nation observes.  In the middle of the summer this is the last place where we would want an extra hour of daylight.  It's 110 in the shade.  I do, however, like the fact that when tv shows are broadcast to come on at 9pm that they do instead of 10pm.  This happens basically because the programming comes out of California which observes Daylight Savings, therefore we are on the same clock from now until November.

My least favorite part is trying to call relatives back east at a decent hour.  They are now 3 hours ahead.
