Thank goodness that tickets arrived in the mail today! We can get back to playing football and enjoying the games, and quit focusing on all the activity off the field. Despite all the offseason turmoil, or maybe because of it, […]
For about the 10th year now we are providing funding for scholarships for Marion County residents and Marion County high school graduates. We’ve used different mechanisms in the past, but for the last 5-6 years we’ve done this through the […]
Some silence in last month. Spent a lot of time enjoying family and central Ohio, fall is the time to be in the state with football, color changes, often good weather, etc. And when not in Ohio, I was in […]
* “Pink Moon Cupcake Bakery”:http://www.pinkmooncupcakes.com/. My sister turned me on to this one, I never would have found the place otherwise. Awesome cupcakes in a quaint old town. * Lawns. My gosh do people love their lawns here. Even modest […]
Been digging around a bit for more trail resources. Came across some useful sites. A lot of these are primarily bike trails over old rail and canal ROWs but still pretty interesting: * “The DNR”:http://ohiodnr.com/?TabId=11915 summarizes trails across all state […]
OK Central Ohio doesn’t have a lot of huge national forests or national parks, and so at first I thought hiking opportunities were constrained. But now I’ve stumbled across all these “state nature preserves”:http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/tabid/860/Default.aspx and some of them are pretty […]
* Crickets and Cicadas. Man I totally miss these in Seattle. Sitting out in the evening here, you almost need earplugs, the crickets and cicadas kick up such a ruckus. Very cool. * Lightning Bugs. Wrong time of year for […]
* “L&P Cake and Candy Shoppe”:http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&client=firefox-a&ie=UTF-8&q=bakery+bellefontaine+marion+ohio&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&cid=1148308129879636741&li=lmd. Seriously maybe the best frosted sugar cookie ever. * “Crum Strawberry Farm”:http://www.pickyourown.org/OHcolumbus.htm. After eating their strawberries, I resolve to never buy grocery story strawberries again. * The entire scene Saturday night at the Horseshoe. […]
Article in today’s WSJ about “Fasting Dying Cities” and Ohio is all too well represented (though Canton is growing, what is the story there??). So let’s look at the big picture — college football competitiveness. It is not so much […]
Cleveland Tourism Video — watch til the end. Hat Tip to MaizeNBrew
OHS – Places – Harding Home. Contains almost all the original furnishings of Harding. Harding Tomb — tho we always called it the Harding Memorial. When I was very very young I was skinny enough to slip thru the bars. […]
University System of Ohio :: Ohio GI Promise — nice work Ohio!
XunLight, Silicon Thin Film Solar Maker, Raises $22M | EcoGeek — Nice to see an Ohio company leading the way
OSU finally shows up. You had the sense that OSU had 4-5 chances to really put this game away and finally did. Not a perfect game, but certainly their most complete game. And nice to see Dorsey shut up.
for an extended stay — need a kitchen in particular. Woodfin Suite Hotel, a premier all-suite hotel in Dublin, Ohio looks like a reasonable choice. Not that far from the Whole Foods in Columbus which is a plus.
Now a free site — BuckeyeXtra — more Buckeye coverage than you can shake a stick at. Unfortunately today it is all about Clarett.
* Wolverines sue Big Ten over “Hostile Work Environment”. Hah. * Nice posters of the Dispatch coverage of the victory — for the Buckeye fans on your Christmas list.
OK now that I am off the high of the Michigan game, what’s next? Let’s assume enough of the BCS top 6 win out, ie there is no way for The OSU to jump to the #2 position. Si.COM says […]
The UM fan base is getting rev’ed up for The Game. Westsider Rider has some of the best: A friend of mine on the way to the game gets flipped the bird by a little kid, meaning like 8 years […]
Time to start getting fired up. Here’s a Michigan fan whining about mistreatment at the hands of OSU fans. Boo hoo. I’ve been to Michigan statement a few times and I don’t seem to remember the red carpet. OK physical […]
