Well, I am definitely not good at figuring this out. I went to the calendar and I saw
some names on the July month. Tried to include mine but couldn't figure it out. I saw
Scuba Daddy and Tanya and others.
Anyways, I was trying to see if there are any special events happening from Sunday 24th of July to the 31st. Also... Mondays is usally a quite night... at least in Cda.
What would be a happening place on Mondays in Aruba?

I spent about 15 minutes yesterday trying to add my trip. I did some stuff, but it never showed up for me on the calendar. So, I just gave up. But gesv says he can see it? Maybe one of our great moderators can help us out.

I tried yesterday and today at least for one hour. I kind of gave up so I use this method. Any word on anything happening on that week? July 24th to July 31st.
All I know so far is that Moomba's on sunday is good so I am going to try that.

OK, I must be having a senior moment. When I click on the Calendar link above it takes me to the calendar. It is showing July 2005. I see other people on various days, but do not see my on name. I tried to put my trip in yesterday for July 23-30, but don't see my name on any of those days.

Default Re: Let's do a countdown

1. go to the calendar page
2. go to the bottom of the page and on the 'calendar jump' section switch to 'visit aruba bb party calendar'
3. switch to the month you are going (mine is august)
4. go to the section on the lower right that says 'add new event'
5. click on 'ranged event' (if you want to just advertise a bb party click on 'single event')
6. the page you will see gives you a place for a title i.e. sherry and murray and a space for dates
7. alter the title and dates to suit you
8. if planning a party put that information in the big space below
9. save events
10. voila

Of course I will. I graduated from St. Vincent and go back to camp every year. Plus I used to work with Dwayne Woodruff when he first started as an attorney! He got me onto the field a couple of times!!!

One year during a redskins game, we had managed to work our way down to some seats close to the field. It was winter, and I was wearing my big red down jacket. Some guys went by with big red jackets on, walking onto the field like they belonged (they did), and I just jumped up and joined in - suddenly I was on the field! They went wherever they were going, and I walked over to the Skins on the sideline, and sidled right up to Riggo (John Riggins for all you people looking to countdown to Aruba and not football). Stood right next to him for a few seconds, finally said 'What's up, John?' (like an idiot). He turns to me and says 'are you supposed to be here?' and when I answer no, he says 'that explains those people'. As I look left, 5 security dudes are charging toward me. Needless to say, my time on the field was over.

It was fun, and a memory I'll never forget!

Oh, and I'll be in Aruba in approximately 120 days - whohoooo!

We usually go once a year. The kids love to go especially my 13 year old son who my daughter has used for years to get autographs!
I am jealous of your work with "The Judicator" (that's what we fondly call Dwayne at my house.
Tomorrow I will be at the UPMC training facility on the South side for a Media Day (what a place that is) & usually we get to see a few people & the highlight film (I'll only watch it til the next to the last highlight then I'll close my eyes.

Needless to say, my time on the field was over.

Now kevin-----everyone knows you must always keep your mouth shut (no matter how hard it is) in those once in a lifetime situations!!
I was on the field (I was allowed) once for a Monday nite game aganist Cincy (who I have not liked much since the 70's) & it was all I could do to not go spit on Kenny Anderson (he was a coach at that point) but I knew if I did they would remove me!!!!! BTW-I'm counting down both Aruba & NFL.

St Vincent College in Latrobe, PA where our precious Steelers have training camp. University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Training facility on the southside of Pittsburgh, where both Pitt & the Steelers train year round. Dwayne Woodruff was a very good Steeler player for many years.
Logical questions Corrine, most of our sports stuff is not very well known.

Hey Hooked,

I think Latrobe is home to my favorite beer. Can't buy it anywhere around here and you can't even get it shipped out here. It's killing me to hear your from the heart of beer country.

Tere,
Well listen we'll have to try to get you some. I assume you are talking about Rolling Rock & yes Latrobe is its home, in fact the museum/brewery is very near St Vincent's College---you can get it all over Western PA/Eastern Ohio. If you are attending the BB party in Atlantic City maybe we can bring you some!

donnie, Scuba Dad,
Maybe we should gather up all the Western PA BB members & have an imprompto/informal gathering at Training Camp!

Since this is the countdown thread - at this time tomorrow I will be back on the island of paradise.

Yes, I have drank my share of those green bottles with the 33 on it manufactured in Latrobe. But starting tomorrow, I'll be drinking out of green cans manufactured in Aruba.

Yes, I have drank my share of those green bottles with the 33 on it manufactured in Latrobe. But starting tomorrow, I'll be drinking out of green cans manufactured in Aruba.

Larry - A happy and safe trip from me too! Please don't forgot to report to us when you return!

Hooked - Hubby LOVES Rolling Rock! His all time favorite! Thankfully, it is plentiful in NY. Geez, between Kevin wanted to sneak off and gamble and you guys and your Rolling Rock, I think my husband is going to have a pretty good time!

Hey Hooked,

I'm an idiot! It's not Rolling Rock or Latrobe! It's Ying Ling, and I don't know where they make it. I ask in all the "trendy" beer selling spots in Austin and they just laugh at me for trying to get that beer. Oh well, someday, I'll make a return trip and have to smuggle some out to Austin.

You guys are making me jealous. We have to wait another 125 days and 16 hours to arrive on the island! Ugh, will the time ever pass? I'm already thinking about those palapas and the sailing.

For you guys going this week, have a wonderful time.
Tere

Just a little, to say the least. Sitting here loading more tunes into the I-pod, paying the Aug 1 bills and making a list a what we need to bring.
