Wednesdays with Lou


Brooke, Dominic, and I have officially completed two Geocache outings. Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called Geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. We uploaded the app for that onto our new iPhones so that we could start our adventures. We went for our first time about three weeks ago with our good friends Matt and Robyn and their two kids Reagan and Ryann. We searched for four and found three. We got hooked instantly but it’s almost Winter so we’ll probably have to put this hobby on the shelf until the weather warms up again. We got lucky with the weather this evening so we went out for our second time on our bikes around the area. We searched for four but only found one. We’re still getting the hang of this and are excited to go exploring again. This is a great family activity that I’m sure Dominic will really enjoy as he gets older. He’s already a little explorer around the house so watch out next summer.

Brooke found her first cache today!

Fun with Spammers

My brother, Pete, is the managing editor for Pest Management Professional magazine and keeps a blog for it. He recently wrote two hilarious blogs about some fun he had with Spammers. Check out the following links for a very funny read.



If you like the links post them to your facebook or twitter account at the bottom of the page and share it with your friends. Speaking of Twitter I finally broke down and setup a Twitter account http://twitter.com/LouGrasso10 Having the capability to be online 24/7 with my iPhone now has really opened up a lot of opportunities and has increased my efficiency significantly.

I know this blog post is link heavy but I found a lot of really interesting things online this week and wanted to share them.

It is so much fun to do. A few years ago, we took a travel bug that we found hidden in Finwood and took it all the way to a cache in Mexico!
