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!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
