WE WERE IN THE PAPER!!!! haha [20 Nov 2005|10:52am]


Santa, candy and fun

Bucks County Courier Times

Nicholas Johnson sat on a curb bundled in a Philadelphia Eagles jacket with his tiny hands covering his ears on Saturday.

His eyes lit up as a convoy of fire trucks in the Bristol Township Thanksgiving Day parade slowly rolled past as loud sirens blared.

A jolly Santa Claus sat high above the crowd in a fire truck and threw candy to little parade watchers.

"Yes, I love this," said Nick as he cautiously collected candy from the ground.

Nicholas and his mother Lyn have come to the parade for the last three years.

"It's quick and fun, and the kids really enjoy it," said Lyn. "It's actually fun for me, too."

She was taken back to her childhood when she saw children's entertainer Sally Starr riding by in a convertible waving.

"Wow, I remember watching her on TV when I was like 3," she said, waving at Sally.

Fancy hot rods, marching bands, step teams and emergency vehicles came down Emilie Road on Saturday for the sixth annual parade that serves as the unofficial kick-off for the holiday season. Cars rolled by playing holiday music as inflatable snowmen and reindeer swayed in the wind.

The Harry S Truman marching band marched by with the Truman football team close behind on a creative float that doubled as stadium seating for the team.

Judy Holdsworth admired band uniforms as they walked past.

Black and gold sequined outfits shimmered in the sunlight as they spun in circles as part of their routine.

"They never looked like that when I went to school there," said Holdsworth, a Truman graduate. "They look really good. "

While Holdsworth admired the flashy outfits, her daughter, Shawna Martin, had her eye on Santa Claus.

"He was my favorite part of the whole parade - oh yeah, and the candy, too," she said as her mom dangled her bag full of treats.

As the parade came to the close, fire engine sirens faded in the distance and the holiday tunes finished their last notes.

The Burgos family made its way home a couple blocks away from the parade. The family has been coming to the parade for five years.

" It was really nice, but I wish it was longer," said Roxanne Burgos.

Glen Mills...

Founded in 1826, The Glen Mills Schools is the oldest residential school for court referred young men in the country. Located on 756-acre campus, 20 miles southwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Glen Mills Schools accepts young men 15 to 18 years old from all states.

The Schools’ philosophy is based on two basic principles:

  1. Our students have great personal endowment and have unlimited potential to learn and grow.

  2. Our students are not ‘bad boys’. They may have done bad things, but are not intrinsically bad. This simple yet profound statement, although not diminishing accountability, puts behavior in its environmental context.

The Glen Mills Schools accepts two basic mandates for students:

  1. To change behavior from anti-social to pro-social.

  2. To develop life skills that will help sustain this change.

What happened to truman?! Theyre good all of a sudden? or are we just playing reaaaaaaaaaly bad teams?

The only thing that kept me from thinking that I was with another school is 1) the awesomeness of our band... and 2) the gang fights that were supposed to take place... Oh, Middle School Gangs, how I love them... haha

Stupid kids... and... Remember while planning gang fights, When in doubt, bring a hammer... Mwahahaha

The band kicked ass, as always..

Caddilac Vs. Expedition [10 Sep 2005|04:11pm]

Expedition Wins!

Soooo Many things wrong with that picture.

1)Hes parked on the wrong side of the street.

2)Hes parked in a no parking zone.

3)He got that damage by hitting my familys Expedition last night at 2:00am.

4)He was going more than 25mph when he hit it.

So, The guy hits our car at like 2:00am... and then... recooperates
himself, and then drives off.... Luckily, a neighbor of ours was just
getting home, and he saw the accident... So, he got back in his car and
followed the guy home... The next morning he came over to tell us about
it... Fun times.

Our car has almost no damage, a broken tailgate latch, and a
dented/mis-aligned bumper but nothing that cant be fixed with ducktape
until we get a hefty insurance check. His car... needs a big band
aid... because... he doesnt have insurance to cover it...

Moral of the story: Dont drive drunk and crash into a car bigger than yours...

Spanky! [10 Sep 2005|01:53am]

Jamie sheets... Just proving that spanky goes to UCF... or atleast, did go to UCF.. not positive hes still there.

(hes to the left side of that pic, funny face)


Suave, and tanned. mmmmmm toasty.


Is this spanky? Who knows... Hes playing tenors.

well... thats all the pictures for now... and none of lesko yet, but.. ill keep looking... I also found this, which definitely makes me wonder why lesko went there.

UCF...UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA! This school hangs with the best of the best in Florida. Downtown Orlando with the famous BAR ORLANDO, and bars ranging from down the street all the way to Church Street. Its like holy, and the kids here party like none other. (not to mention the girls are hot...coming from a sorority girl herself!) Give us some recognition man,

• Not only is UCF, The UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA, a top notch academically but it is proven fact that this school in Orlando is on the rise with its 44,000+ student enrollment. The academic standards is among the highest in the state of Florida and of course the coeds are totally HOT! Just check this out: UCF Cheerleading won the D-IA championship a couple of years ago and has been nationally ranked for 10 years now. Ericka Dunlap won Miss America two years ago. Just this past year, Monica Spears won the Miss Venezuela pageant and competed in Miss Universe contest. Oh yeah, this just in, WB's new reality show, "Big Man on Campus," is using all UCF students and filming the show right on campus. The tailgating in football is among the best in the state of Florida!!!! This school is definitely HOT!!!!

Lesko? at a party school?..... weird.
