I wrote some poems this morning and Gary put them on the webpage for me! I hope you like them. I am working on some others!
Hey Linz, there isn't anything on the reviews page, but i went to NorthPole.com, very cool, I even got a little hooked to "Bud's Swap Puzzle"! I need to show it to Tristen, she will love it!
Sorry to jump in again, but Lindsey's note is and was on the Reviews page.

Try reloading the page -- with Netscape, hold down the shift key and click Reload -- and you'll get the most current version of the page. --Gary
Hey, go to "Reviews" and check out my review on Northpole.com. It is really cool. I found it out from my computer teacher at school. Have Fun!
We just got out of school and now we are on break until January 3. G2G Bye.
"We're simply having a wonderful Christmas time," does that sound like something???? I'm
The Beatles Christmas pages didn't help too much, I know the lines "Ding Dong, Ding Dong" are in there, if that helps?????
The song "Christmas Bells Are Ringing" has "ding dong, ding dong" in it; but I don't know if that's your song. I'm out of ideas. Anybody else? --Gary
Today was our 1st day of Christmas Break and we went shopping I got a blue jacket and
some really cool hair clips Erika got some jeans with these weird butterflies on them Bye 8)
We need help! We have the tip of the tongue syndrome going on! What is the popular
Christmas song by the beatles that you always hear piped into the stores??????
Amanda-- I'm not sure what song you're talking about; maybe "Happy Christmas"? The Beatles recorded special Christmas records for their fans every year ("extended-play 45s," for those of you old enough to know what a 45 was...), and that song was included on several of them, I think. Go here and here for info on their Christmas records. --Gary
I CAN'T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS!
I heard about the Tristen accident. Well, I guess I won't be telling her any secrets!
Remember the red nose dilema with Tristen? "Will it turn peach again?" Well, EVERYTIME she goes outside now and comes back in she runs right to the mirror to check out the color, and quietly she confirms it with herself, "it will turn peach again."
Hey, guess what I got for my birthday.......... a Digital Camera!!!!!!!! It is soooooo coooool! I love it. I use it a lot. I've been taking pictures of the snow and of Livey and me. I've been trying to get pictures of Ceaser, but he just won't hold still. Anyway, I can't believe I got it. My Grandma and Grandpa Megrue got it for me and Sean said he would give me a copy of his art program to use for it. So, maybe I can start E-mailing pictures to everybody. Hopefully, but I think it will work. Well, G2G, bye!
On my birthday/christmas list. I got the backstreet boy's CD, so I don't need that!!!!!!!!
We had yet another snowday with lot's of snow. I think the weatherman said we had about two feet of snow on the ground. I'm still wishing for another one tomorrow! We'll see!
NEBRASKA VOLLEYBALL TEAM ARE THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!! I watched all their games and they won all of them. I think they were 34 and 0. Well, bye!
Nice speech Sean! So, how do you like your new speech-recognition thing?
Amanda got the following from Sean. Sean got a speech-recognition program (you speak into a microphone, and the program types what you are saying on the screen), and this is how it interpreted one of his early sessions. It sounds kinda like Tristen's note! :-)

My birthday is on Friday and I am going to go bowling! I think it will be fun, because we are going to do a laser bowling thing. It is going to have like colored lights and smoke. Well, G2G, bye!
ER -- Dr. Green's fiancee, Dr. Corday, is pregnant, and he just found out he has a brain tumor & it is inoperable and he only has 8 weeks to live, maybe 6 months if he undergoes chemo, but he has to quit being a doctor ASAP! It was heart wrenching!
We had a snowday today and it was fun except me and Olivia had a snowball fight and instead of hitting me she ran into me and knocked me over HARD! Then of course she had to FALL ON TOP OF ME! It really hurt hard! G2G Bye!
Amanda-what happened on ER? I don't watch it anymore, but I'm curious. I was one of the fortunate few that stayed home today. I worked from home-but not very hard. I tried shoveling the snow twice, but it just keeps blowing over. I have huge snowdrifts in my back yard-one blocking my back door. How soon til Spring?
Merry Christmas, ho ho ho! Just like Rudolph. Umm. Clowns that hurt their selves & bite. Ummm. Trees don't fight & trees like kids, people, dads & the computer food. And trees like kids, moms, dads, people and trash cans, yup. Daddy has a saxophone in the umm... what is this called again? Mom? A case for saxophone stuff for my dad when he was born. Umm.... People click food, yeah that's funny. And people click CD's. Zoe just click her kitty litter. And zoe clicked her tail. Umm... You just clicked your coffee. Umm... Charlie Browns Christmas cookies. We will see you on your birthday, think they will have corn again? --Love, Tristen Bailey Metcalf
All right, what's the deal??? No school today, one of the only days in the semester I wanted to go, this is finals week, and I just want to be done! Its not like I have a test, I just have to turn in a take home test that I already have done! What is the deal?? Did everyone have school off? I know I heard it was cold in Minne! OK, well keep looking I will be telling everyone my grades from my first semester. Actually it might not be for a few weeks, but just so you know to look!
Check out tcwellness.com. I'm on the cover and there is an interview with me on pg. 11.
Hey, is there a feud brewing between Linz and Emily on the newsletter page? Stay tuned in for the next, uh -- news?? I agree with Karen, I really like the Advent
calendar. I'm also sort of addicted to the webcams too.
I love the advent calendar -- great idea! We go to the computer first thing every
morning to see what's there. :)
