Last Night's Dinner

I think we finally fixed the problem with my alison.trynosky blogger account so here goes nothing for my first official post.

Here at the Bridgewater Trynosky homestead we eat dinner around 7p and since we have a small TV on the kitchen counter we spends most meals with Jeopardy on in the background.  When the category for Final Jeopardy is given James' typical comment is "All in Alex" unless of course the category is something like interpretive dance.  Last night however it was "All in Alex, Who is General MacArthur?"  I of course laughed because the chances of someone guessing the question correctly while only having the category name is absurd.
I don't know if anyone reading this post watched Jeopardy last night but for those of you who didn't here is the category and clue.
American Military Men:  "In April 1951 he told Congress, "In war there can be no substitute for victory."  (For the correct response please refer to James)
The triumphant cheer that was cried out after that popped up on the screen almost knocked me out of my chair.  James is adamant that he has done this before, guessed the response after the category was announced, but since neither of us could remember any of the details I have decided to catalog it in our little piece of the blogosphere.  Plus James doesn't like to boast about his accomplishments, however minor, so I have decided to take on this particular duty (along with the joyous task of talking about our children) in an effort to help get this blog up and running again.

New Links and New Energy

I have about 10 million updates to make, but here is an important one....a new link!

Check out what what my good friend Mike is up to at Sustainable Waste Power Systems. They are getting ready to change the world.

New Arrival...Welcome Catherine Grace (now over one month old)

Boy, I started writing this post almost almost two months ago, I am really falling behind on this thing. We are well past the one month mark... on April 10th as I started this, I was Alison and Catherine in the hospital, probably eating the greasy chicken fingers that were on the maternity ward menu.

My original post that never made it below....

Well...I think I've mentioned this a few times in my sporadic posting over the past months, that we had a big announcement, or several, and I would be making some posts about them. Well, I have broken my new years resolution to get this thing back up and running with more frequent posts, and those updates never got made.

So here is the really big announcement for anyone following who may not be in the know.

April 10th, at 9:58 AM, we welcomed our second daughter into the world. Catherine Grace Trynosky, she weighed in at a robust 9 lbs 6 oz.

Mom and Baby are doing great, and we all couldn't be happier about our growing family.

 Here we are past one month already...

Catherine... you got ripped off on your grand blog announcement, and I will make it up to you some how.
