Day at the Dells an International Experience

On Friday, my gal Lindsay and I went up to the Wisconsin Dells.  The maindellspic1 reason was because her younger brother, Evan and his girlfriend Catrina were coming to visit.  No, Evan isn't a 12-year-old.  He's 24 but has heard about the Dells his whole life and never visited.  His enthusiasm for all the waterslides got me fired up as well. We even had "customized" t-shirts made.  Actually, they were just t-shirts with "Ark Masters" scribbled on the front with a Sharpie.  We each had a name on the back.  Lindsay was "The Punisher", Catrina was "Queen of the Dells", Evan was "King of the Dells" and I was "Court Jester".  coasterThe waterslides at Noah's Ark were amazing. We also road the Ducks.  The three of them took a quick ride on one of the roller coasters and we all played a round of mini-golf.   I was leading in mini-golf, but had a meltdown on the 16th hole a la Greg Norman and ended up finshing in third. However, the most interesting part of the day was that so many of the people who work these places come from foreign countries.  We chatted with a girl from Russia and another one from China.  I wonder what type of impression that get of America because it appears most of them only see the Dells and perhaps get a day in Chicago if they're lucky. I love the Dells, but I hope the girl from China gets a chance to see we have a lot more than just waterslides, an upside down fake White House, lots of fudge and bungee jumping.  I want to take a few of them on a tour so they can see we have some great architecture and wonderful museums.  Perhaps it's better if they just stay in the Dells.  Maybe they would be disappointed to find out there aren't giant waterslides and moccaasins for sale around every corner.

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

'Blood Moon' not as scary as it sounds. ~Stevi
