For the last month our computer was on life support. I thought I was going to be on life support as well since it was our hard drive that was going bad. Thankfully, it was not bad enough that we were able to save all of our pictures for the year 2010. I guess that would result in serious injuries for myself, since I did not take the time to back up any pictures. I love how we have transitioned from cameras with film that we had to print out pictures to digital cameras where we download them to a computer. The funny thing is, computers and hard drives do not last very long. So my advice for the day, back up as much as possible all pictures and files you wish to keep.
Now that the computer is back, here are some pictures from the past few weeks.
These five are from when my sister Teresa and her husband Juan Luis came to Omaha to visit. When people come to visit Omaha, what is the main attraction? The zoo. So of course, we spent a day at the zoo with them. Brianna loves the Skyfari, the new ski lift that takes us across the zoo and back. I cant believe she loves it. She is terrified of sharks in the aquarium that have no possible way of getting her but she loves being up on a lift with no secure seat belt. The last picture is of what should be another Omaha staple. Riviera's Mexican Restaurant. It was fantastic, as usual. The margarita's definitely made the night go well. Including when Kristy realized her license had expired, five months prior.
These four are from Halloween, obviously. Brianna went as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Emily went as the Cowardly Lion. Brianna made out like a bandit for trick or treating. One in Baxter and another in Omaha.
Now to the last week of football. Its hard to believe its been 12 weeks of college football. At the beginning of the year a lot of people counted off Iowa State. They had some ugly losses and some good wins. Now it all boils down to this weekend against a Top 15 ranked Missouri game. If ISU wins, they finish with 6 wins and 6 losses. Not too good for a lot of other schools, but with a program that has not had a lot of success in its history and playing the toughest schedule in the country this year, 6-6 is a good way to end the regular season and get to a bowl game.
Things got worse when ISU's quarterback had his knee destroyed at Colorado. An ugly game by the way. A kid that had three football coaches stuck around and played the game the way its suppose to be. Its too bad his record didn't show a lot of success.
I want to say ISU wins this game, obviously. I am not sure they will have the strength to pull off the upset. So far this year, I picked 5 games right, and missed on 6 games. That is the same record as ISU right now. Therefore, I have to say they will pull it off. It will be a close one, and most likely an ugly one, but they pull off the win and 45,000 people try to tear the goal posts down once again.
