One of the Biggest Mistakes in History!

On this day in 1985, The Coca-Cola Company introduced "New Coke" to replace its flagship soft drink Coca-Cola, which generated so much negative response that the company put the previous formula back on the market less than three months later.

New Coke was just nasty!

Range Day (4-14-2013)

So after I pouted last time my family got to go shooting without me, our neighbor arranged for us to go this past Sunday.

I think I am ruined for paper targets!  This is what we got to shoot at:

The sound of that ting when the bullet hits is AMAZING!  Of course it's also fun to "duel" against others. :-)

Here is DH and our neighbor getting ready to have a go at the tree:

Here is one of yours truly dueling with my youngest son:

He's not bad, but he had to use his father's Glock and he prefers my XDm. LOL

He did get to shoot our neighbors .45

Here is my youngest.  She did not like the "kick" of our guns, so she just enjoyed the woods and contemplated life. LOL

I also found out what my next gun will be.  Our neighbor brought his new XDs .45 and I got to use it.  I loved it!

I told DH that that will be my next major purchase. :-)

Busy times

It has been a busy two weeks here.

I was able to get to the range once and will post pics about that later.

Classes are coming to a close and that means end of term tests and papers.  Of course, then  my final undergraduate semester starts and I will be VERY busy then.

I am still around though!

Red Dawn (2012)

Last night was a movie night at the Tea household.  I was able to reserve Red Dawn at a Redbox location and made the family happy. :-)

While they watched, I watched and did schoolwork.  Yeah, not the best example for the kids, but I pulled the "I'm an adult" card and on went the movie. LOL

I was pleasantly impressed with it.  I vaguely remember the 1984 version and was not sure I wanted to see the remake.  Of course, since I only vaguely remembered the older version was probably a good thing, since I was not comparing the two. LOL

Of course, we spotted some tactical errors, or at least things we would have done differently, but movies are usually like that. LOL  Over all I liked the message it presented and will highly suggest it to others!
