October 16, 2011 at 4:28 pm

It’s that time of year again– time for the Preble County Pumpkin Festival, which will be held this October 29th-30th.

The Pumpkin Festival traditionally features pumpkin carving, line dancing, ghost story telling, and a “monster mashup” of songs from Preble’s favorite a capella group, “Tone Fol de Rol”.

There’s also the Preble County Pumpkin Festival Scare Cave, which is a load of fun, unless you’re my oldest son, Zachary. Read more →→→

I’m a sucker for feel good stories, and after reading this I had to give each one of my kids a hug. Shortly after being named homecoming queen, she kicked a game winning field goal in her team’s football game! She is so impressive!

I’m very proud of my son (Hi Zachary!), and I wouldn’t Read more →→→


Blue collar man buys his own island!!!

October 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

A man in New York City bought a deserted island just off the coast from his home for $160,000.

Before he bought the island, which is called “Rat Island”, he was just a lowly sanitation worker. I’m inspired to see a hardworking blue collar type like me make his dreams come true.

This should remind us all that the American Dream is not dead. I hope that I can buy an island of my own someday. Read more →→→


I’ve Been Thinking About Cats Again

October 4, 2011 at 11:09 am

I love how the Internet brings people together. Just yesterday, I saw a video from the “online dating service” in which a very nice, articulate young lady shares her enjoyment of felines with the whole world.

The really incredible thing about the video is just how much this young woman loves cats. She loves cats so much that she even starts crying every time she thinks about them!

Seeing that video reminded me of my own two wonderful kitty critters, Pally and Izzie. Boy have they been in some shenanigans lately. Read more →→→


iLove the iPod!!

October 3, 2011 at 12:58 pm

My son Zachary’s 17th birthday is coming up, and when he told me he wanted an iPod, I thought he meant there was something wrong with his vision!

But it turns out that in this day and age, you can fit thousands of songs into one small piece of equipment.

I had to go to Cincinnati to pick up my cousin Barbara from the airport so on the way back we stopped at the “Apple” store before heading home. What a place!

Welcome to the very first NFL Blog Post on the Preble Post! We might not have an NFL football team of our own here in Preble, but most of us live just an hour and a half away from Cincinnati, so we’re die-hard BENGALS fans around here. Can I get a “Who Dey!?!?!” Read more →→→

September 11, 2011 at 11:29 am

Last Saturday, September 3rd, was a night to remember here in Preble County, as the community came together to celebrate the end of summer by watching a hard rockin’ show from a Kiss Tribute Band called “Mr. Speed”. I hear they were almost as good as the real deal!

The event, called “Drakefest,” is held every year, and is named after the successful local company Drake Heating and Air.
