National Quartet Convention 2014 Pigeon Forge TN

Hi neighbors!

We are going to be spending the next several days telling you all about the National Quartet Convention 2014 that was held in Pigeon Forge TN.  Let me tell you up front we had a GREAT time.  The weather was good all week long.

Before I get started about the week I want to take a moment to address an issue.  Throughout the week we heard some griping and complaining about the new venue.  Prior to this year the convention had been held in Louisville KY.  The complaints were:
1. The seats were all on level not slanted or with steps.
2. It was too hot.
3. There were a few complaints about the food.
Now, let me add that in previous years in Louisville, there were complaints of the steps to the seats, it was too cold and of course some complaints about the food.  There were a few issues the first few days due to so many people converging on the Leconte Center all at once.  The issues were handled quickly and efficiently.  They stepped in and I have a feeling next year will be even better.  I am looking forward to 2015.

What were a few of the conveniences?  I personally loved the setting.   This is of course my opinion, but the Smoky Mountains looked beautiful in the background.  The trolley service to and from the Leconte Center was great for my daughters because they were able to come and go as they had need.  There was so much in the area to do in our free time.  Pigeon Forge plug here...The restaurants right nearby were varied and served some of the best southern food.  We will have a couple reviews later of a couple we went to.

Another thing you will be seeing over the next several days are some interviews my daughter did  while at the convention.  She managed to ask several unique questions and had fun recording her interviews.  We are going to call these Moments with Mercy!  Start making your plans to attend the National Quartet Convention 2015.  My daughters are already making plans.

We still have one more day traveling and we will be back to our regular posting schedule.  Thank you for your patience while we were on this trip. Be sure to stop in soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
