Free Fonts and a SUPER Date Idea

I came across this free font site and downloaded a bunch - probably too many. I'll never use all those fonts. But they are very cool. The site is called Fonts500. Check it out. Take a peak. I'm sure you'll find a bunch you like. It puts 100 fonts on a page and there are 5 pages - thus 500 free fonts. There is also a page to help you install your new fonts. Easy as pie... ummmmm pie. We bought a GREAT blueberry pie in Lancaster, PA over Spring Break - man was it good!!! But, "GREAT blueberry pie" is not the topic this morning.

Another Font idea/tip. Search the Internet, but there is a macro or command that you can run in MS Word to print out all your fonts. I do that sometimes and then delete the ones I'll never. I also use it to see what I have. So many fonts. I seem to use the ones in the upper area of the alphabet because I get to them first.

Date Idea: Every month my wife puts two dates on my calendar, two "date nights." It is great. Often she plans and and then I plan the other. (I've got a "surprise" date planned for one of our May dates. Shhhh, it's a secrete.) Sometimes we plan them together and other times we do the normal, "what do you want to do?" "I don't know, what do you want to do?" Then we go out to dinner. BUT, last night we did a really fun, creative date. (She planned it of course). Here is the scoop.

She picked up a movie. Then she fixed dinner for the family. After dinner, Deb kept the kids and we took our movie, some popcorn (popped on the stove - not in the microwave - good stuff, closest to movie popcorn I've had), sodas, candy, a blowup mattress, some pillows and headed up to the youth room. She blew up the mattress, I got ice and turned on the digital projector. Then we got cozy and watched the flick on big screen. Very nice, very nice indeed.

The movie: The Guardian - with Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. Now, I don't think I would have picked this one out, BUT, it turned out to be a great movie. A couple of places they could have cut down on the language and Ashton's character's romance was not exactly "pure." But the underlying message: "saving lives and giving your life for someone else" was very well done. This is definitely a movie to rent. Costner and Kutcher do a great job selling the hardships and rewards of being in the United States Coast Guard.
