Software Update

General NewsWell, I have updated the software that runs this site. I hope I have caught all the bugs at this point, but if you have any problems, click on the contact link in the upper right hand corner of the page and let me know. I'm looking into some additional updates to keep spammers from registering accounts. Until then, I have set the account registration process to require action from me. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Missed October and Misc. maintenance stuff

General NewsWell, I got lazy last month, and October (and pretty much all of November) went by without a post. I'll have to keep that from happening again! As far as the site maintenance stuff goes, I'm going to be updating the software that runs this site sometime in the near future. I hope to keep from losing all the posts. I've also had to make it so that you have to be logged in to post things to the forum. We've had a group of spammers posting spam as comments to stories, and in the forums, so I'm trying to keep that stuff from happening.

Whale Watchers. (A good shot at a story, hope you like it) Part 2

General NewsKay, so I haven't added to this for forever, I have an explination, it's kinda long though. Kay, so I didn't know until a little while ago how annoying the place where it stopped was, and lately I haven't been working on it a lot lately, so I didn't relize how much I have that this place doesn't. I think this was where I was. Oh and also, I didn't know how to add to my old thing, I think this is how you do it, but if not sorry.

The more things change...

General NewsWell, we arrived in Utah, safe and sound. We got off a little late on Thursday, so we didn't arrive in Delta until 1:30 am on Friday. The kids were very excited to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house, but the only one that got really impatient was Sierra. She complained about the drive taking "hours and hours!" Lori's been busy since we've gotten down here. Her family is having their family reunion here in Delta, which is convenient for us.

Ison Reunion coming up

General NewsWow, 4 posts in May, then almost nothing in June. I appologize, I didn't realize it had been that long!

I thought I would just remind everyone that the Ison family reunion is coming up in a couple of weeks. I have added an event in the calendar on this site, and found that Coy added a map to the Heaton Ranch, where the reunion will be held. It looks like, contrary to my prior statements, Lori and I will not make it down. I hope that those who are going will be willing to post their experiences and pictures here for the rest of us to enjoy.

Whale Watchers. (A good shot at a story, hope you like it)

General NewsOkay. I'm a little nervous. This story is NOT finished. I'm still working on it, but I decided to post what I have, cause I decided to see if anyone actually likes it. And I trust all of you to tell me the truth. Here goes. Oh and beware, very long, there's also supposed to be a picture, but I didn't put it in, cause I don't think can do pictures. Oh, umm aparently it doesn't do tabs either.

Don't Know

General NewsHi, I don't know really what to do in particular, how to do something. If someone would tell me how. Would someone tell me how to get a story on I don't know how and I want to.

From natet Well, Jay, you just did. Forgive me for hijacking this post, but the steps you went through to post that question is exactly what you need to do to post a story here. I wrote a Howto article on this subject some time ago. Here is the article I wrote on posting stories and calendar items. You can also click on the Howto section in the topics block in the upper left corner of the page. As a side note, this site is a moderated site, meaning that I need to approve stories before the appear on the site. Follow the instructions in the article, and I'll do the rest.

Shawna's First Book

General NewsWell, this site is turning into Shawna's fan club! I just got an email from Shawna. Her first book is getting published. It's called "Allie's Bike", and the cover art looks great! Apparantly, she doesn't get royalties for the book, but you gotta start somewhere. I'm just excited to see her name in the byline! Here's a link to the listing on

Nastalgia and Ice Cream

General NewsWhile shopping earlier this week, I happened past a display of ice cream makers in Walmart. They were on sale for $16, so I splurged and bought one. I was reminded of all the fun times we had making ice cream at Grandma Tenney's house, and I thought my kids would enjoy it too.
