When Is Frog Follies 2014?

The immensely popular event, Frog Follies, which features antique cars and hot rods is coming back to on Evansville on August 22, 23, and 24th. This event takes up the entirety of the Vanderburgh County 4H Fair Grounds, showing off cars, fun events, and trade. It’s an event that I try to take in every year and one that my daughter has even started looking forward to.

LLD Investments Credit Card Charge

Find out what the LLD Investments credit card charge is for, which as it turns out is a local restaurant to Evansville, IN.

McAlisters LogoThe latest charge on my credit card, which I had trouble reconciling was for LLD Investments.  This was the only company name associated with a charge on my credit card this week from Evansville, IN.  So what is LLD Investments?

LLD Investments is the name McAlister's processes credit cards under.  So, if you have had the pleasure at eating at the new McAlisters on Green River Road in Evansville and you use your credit card, expect an LLD Investments expense to show up on your next report.

It's a big problem when companies do not use a name associated with their business front.  While I try to keep a close eye on my credit card transaction history, sometimes I lose track.  Going back to match up companies with their processing alias can be daunting, especially in a case like LLD Investments.  I'll sleep easier at night now, knowing that it's not some racket stealing my credit card info, instead a tasty place to eat, the new McAlisters in Evansville.

Video of Macroburst Hitting Evansville 2014

I was at work when the macroburst hit Evansville, IN on Friday May 9th, 2014. It was the strongest wind I have ever experienced and it was compounded by the fact that there were no warnings of any kind. There were no tornado warnings, and I don’ t think there were even any severe thunderstorm warnings. So, when the wind picked up, I thought nothing of it.

Observations From the NEYSC Bench

I have a 6 year old daughter that has loved playing U6 soccer in NEYSC for 4 seasons now. When she started she was very shy, but playing amongst girls her age has changed her. She has come out of her shell, more out going, loves soccer, and loves being amongst friends and meeting new people. It’s changed me as well, especially this season, when I was asked to help from the bench.

My experience with any children, let alone 4, 5 and 6 year old girls is entirely limited to my own daughter. Sure, I’ve been to preschool events, sat in on a few play dates, but never have I had to interact solely and directly with little ladies. This changed in March 2014, when I began helping out on the bench for the NEYSC. I have no experience in soccer, so I am not fit to coach anyone, but why should that stop me from helping keep 4 girls focused on the game, while their teammates are on the field? How hard could it be?
