Around Bowling Green

A few more of the pictures I took last weekend.

Lindsey and Natalie enjoyed walking around on campus. It was a perfect day for it and it gave them different backgrounds for their pictures.

Fountains Square Archway.

I caught them off guard in this one. But, as you can see, they were having a good day.

I enjoyed walking around on Western's campus myself. It really is a nice campus. Other than the hill. My old arthritic knees were sure given a work out.

I didn't intend to take this one of Cherry Hall in black and white, but it turned out okay.

This is the sign outside of Holly, it has been a big part of Bowling Green for many years and it is very near Western's campus.

love taking pictures of the rushing waters at teh Riverwalk. I can remember seeing them when I was a kid and thinking what a pretty sight it was and now as an adult, I still enjoy seeing them. I guess I just like the water.

I can remember when this was a bridge that cars drove over. Now it is part of the walking/bike trail at the Riverwalk.

I think this is the neatest little building. At night it is lit up and looks so pretty. I'm glad they didn't tear it down with all the construction for the baseball stadium. The city decided to keep it and did some renovating of the building and a bit of landscaping. I think it is neat.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Have a good rest of the week.

Warm And Sunny

The weather this weekend has finally been warm and sunny. On Saturday we went downtown to the office. Michael had some things that he wanted to work on for awhile, so Lindsey and I left him there while we ran a few errands and drove around a bit. I had my camera with us, so we took a few pictures.

This is the water tower on what used to be called Hospital Hill (when the Hospital was there), now it is called Reservoir Hill. The tower can be seen from a number of locations around Bowling Green and has been painted with the Flag Theme for as long as I can remember.

Here we have Fountain Square Park. It is really a great place for taking pictures. Prom nights for the local schools usually start with taking pictures here. I love that the park is so close to the office, it is a nice place to take a walk on a warm day and in the summer they have the "Concerts In The Park" every Wednesday too.

This is our Justice Center, a place I'm becoming quite familiar with. It is at the end of the block from the office. Makes it convenient when we have to go over there for Court or for filings.

These next few pictures were taken at the River Walk. It is another great place for taking pictures. I like the water in the background.

I sneaked a shot of Lindsey soaking up the warm sunshine, which left her shadow on the ground.

I like the big map of Bowling Green in the walkway just before the bridge. I tried to get all of it in the picture, but you couldn't read it. It's really neat, it shows the location of all the little communities in Bowling Green. Bowling Green is the big star and Richardsville,(where we live), is at the top of the picture, just inside the square.

I had to get a shot of our new Bowling Green Baseball Park, home of the "Hot Rods".
Adam attended a game Friday night and had a great time.

Lindsey and I had a good time just getting outside in the warm sun and enjoying the views of Bowling Green. I took several more pictures and I'll try to post them in the next few days.

Have a good week everyone!!

This is also my post for Manic Monday, so be sure to go over to "It's A Blog Eat Blog World" and check out everyone's posts. The word this week is WARM.

Manic Monday - Taste

This weeks Manic Monday word is "Taste", what can I say about taste?

I guess I could talk about some of my favorite tastes.

Like a good fillet marinated in olive oil, garlic and a little Worcestershire sauce and then grilled to perfection. Added to some fresh garden vegetables, also grilled and then served over a bed of rice pilaf. Now that is a meal that makes your taste buds go crazy.

Or.....maybe some sea food. Shrimp Scampi, Garlic Shrimp, Cajun Shrimp, Grilled Shrimp, (I sound like Bubba from Forest Gump), or Tilapia like my Aunt Sandy makes, or Grilled Salmon like my hubby makes. Served with a salad or maybe some of those small red potatoes with butter and chives.

Or....we could talk about chicken. My taste buds like chicken just about anyway you can prepare it. Of course, you can NEVER go wrong with Chicken and Dumplings.

Boy, if we didn't have taste buds food sure would be dull.

I myself enjoy cooking and trying new tastes. Sometimes I like the old tried and true simple comfort foods, but I do like to play around in the kitchen and experiment with NEW and DIFFERENT Tastes. Kick it up a notch or sometimes put strange combinations of foods together. The trick is getting the kids to try it, that can be a challenge.
I keep telling my kids that their taste will change as they get older and that they should try new and different foods or even some that they have tried before. Try it and you may, I say. Every now and then they will give in and find that they do like it. The green eggs and ham theory.....
If you would like to see what others have posted about taste, head over to Manic Monday.

The Resuls Are In....

The Dr. that removed Lindsey's mole called Wednesday to give us the lab results. He said that everything was fine, it was not a melanoma, but what they call a Blue Nevi. He said to talk with our regular Dr. about further details.
So of course, I can't wait until Friday when our regular Dr. is to remove the stitches. I have to do my own research. Below is a summary of the information that I found.

Normal moles come in variety of colors, red, brown (in light and dark shades), black and the so-called blue nevi. Blue nevi begin as a normal mole with blue-black color. These moles appear as a result of the collection of melanocytes, (atypical cells located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis). The dark blue color pigment usually runs deeper into the layers of the skin than the brown colored moles, and that is the reason for the blue color. Any change in blue nevi should be referred to the dermatologist for monitoring and testing. This blue mole, or lesion, is not a form of cancer, but it can take on the form of a tumor that can grow if not taken care of. Therefore, they are most often removed due to the potential for them to grow and their disfiguring appearance.

Blue nevi are more common in females than in the male population of any age.

Blue nevi can also become cancerous when triggered by over exposure to UV rays. Like any other colored mole, these moles should be kept from being exposed to the sun’s rays.

There is no method of preventing the production of blue nevi. This is a condition that develops on its own, no matter what one's habits are.

We visited our Family Physican today, he removed the stitches and confirmed everything that I read.

I am so very glad that it is nothing to worry about. I also want to thank everyone for their concern and their prayers for my baby girl. (she hates when I call her that)

Have a good weekend.....try to stay warm since it seems we are never going to have warm weather.
