    makes wonderful sense! πŸ˜‰ do you watch much college basketball? if so…what’s your favorite team?

  2. thisoldsoul says:

    I usually only watch it when the tournament comes around, but I keep track by looking at the USA Today Top 25 Coaches’ Poll. I will sometimes watch when I can during the regular season.
    My favorite team would have to be… Marist. A relatively okay men’s basketball team, but the women’s team has made the tournament two times in a row now. I also like Virginia, Virginia Tech, and George Mason. Pretty much any local schools.

  3. speller291 says:

    That DOES make sense. Hey what grade are you in? Can you go back to the bee next year?

  4. thisoldsoul says:

    I cannot go to the bee anymore. I am too old. I am going to work with my younger brother, however.

  5. speller291 says:

    Ya I guess I could have looked at my bee keeper to figure that out. Oh well. πŸ™‚

  6. sp 240 says:

    hey I feel like saying hi… do you follow college football?

  7. thisoldsoul says:

    I follow some local teams and I check the polls every once in a while, but I’d rather watch the NFL.

  8. 1 .8. 5 says:

    I’m a State fan (NCSU) all the way – any sport. I know, their mens basketball team…isn’t exactly the best in the world. But think about it. They’ve had a rough time with coaches and all.
    Football: Carolina fans…remember last year? 41-10? It’s comin’ at ya again.

    You play any sports? I play baseball, fastpitch softball, a little volleyball, a little soccer, non-competitive basketball, and ride horses πŸ™‚

  9. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Oh, and I forgot to mention in my last comment….college football is waaay better than NFL πŸ˜€

  10. the steelers fan that justed watched fetch says:

    hey just wondering if you have the new Relient K album….if you dont get it from amazon because it comes with a extra song thats AWESOME.

    the steelers fan[who watches fetch]

  11. thisoldsoul says:

    I did get it, but not from Amazon. That song is called Terminals, right? If you’re reading this comment and wondering who Relient K is they are an awesome band. Get their CD!

    the patriots fan [who watches fetch]

  12. the steelers fan [whos sad for his friend] says:

    dude the song ids AWESOME

  13. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Wow. It seems like forever since the Bee! Also, it’s been awhile since I’ve checked back on your site…
    Anyway, I was just going to say hey!

    Also…do you play any sports? Or just keep up with the worlds? πŸ˜€

  14. WordCrafter says:

    I play soccer, football, and basketball, but not competitively. I do play in the local omeschool soccer league, but it is more of a camp than a league. I’m going to play flag football on Thanksgiving!

  15. 1 .8. 5 says:

    awesome! I play softball, baseball, and non-competitive soccer and basketball. Also, we play flag football or two-hand football during youth group on Wednesdays, which is a lot of fun.
    …and I ride horses! Some people may not consider that a sport because “there’s not much physical activity”…just try riding in 2-point for 30 minutes or trotting without stirrups. Then go muck out some stalls. THEN try telling me that’s not exercise. As for competition, if you go to any kind of show, rivalry is strong.

    Wow. I just realized that kinda sounded defensive. I promise, that’s not how I mean it πŸ˜€ I’m just explaining myself.

  16. WordCrafter says:

    Maybe you should get a blog yourself so you can defend horse riding as a sport! It’s worth a shot!

  17. 1 .8. 5 says:

    There’s an idea! πŸ™‚

    I do have a blog, but it’s private…wish there was some way I could send you an invite! I actually have 3 blogs…one about my trip to DC, another about my “movie co.”, and another that’s just about my life in general.

  18. WordCrafter says:

    Well, if you want it to be private what you do is you send me an email, with the three links. If you want it to be public you can just put a comment up here with the three links.

  19. 1.8.5 says:

    yeah…only I don’t know your email address πŸ™‚

  20. WordCrafter says:

    Oh, I didn’t realize you can’t access that from the main page. Okay, here is what you do.
    1. Post another comment with the three links
    2. I will not approve it, so that only I can see it. If you want everyone to see it, say so and I’ll approve it.
    3. I look at your blogs!

  21. 1 .8. 5 says:

    I use Blogger, and since my blogs are set as private, only people that I have sent an invite through Blogger to can view them. Therefore, unless I have your email address, you don’t have access to them.
    Here’s an idea also, since you are moderating the comments, I can give you my email address, and then you can email me yours. It doesn’t matter though, whatever you want to do! πŸ™‚

    Oh, and here are the links, in case you know something I don’t!

  22. WordCrafter says:

    I approved your comment so the general public can see it, because they can’t get there anyway, so it doesn’t matter. I can’t get it up either. Do you set who can see your blog? Why do you have it set on private viewers only?

  23. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Yes, as I said before, only people that I have emailed invites to can view my blog.

    That’s the only way my parents would allow me to get one. Or three. πŸ™‚

  24. WordCrafter says:

    I looked at all your blogs. They are very nice all around. Obviously, the Bee blog is done, so you’re only working on the other two, right?

  25. 1 .8. 5 says:


    Actually, I’ve just finished the first day in DC. I know, I procrastinate way to much. There’s just soooo many pictures and it takes forever to upload. Also, I don’t have a lot of time for blogging.

    TBF Productions is put on hold for awhile, since my camera broke.

    I just started the Daughter of the King one, so we’ll see how that goes. πŸ™‚

  26. 1 .8. 5 says:

    I love the snow! That’s so cool!

  27. WordCrafter says:

    It’s not me. It’s a feature that wordpress uses every christmas. Isn’t it cool?

  28. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Happy New Years, thisoldsoul! πŸ™‚

  29. 1 .8. 5 says:

    The homeschool bee is tomorrow, so we’ll see how it goes with my little brother and sister…I’ll let you know!

  30. WordCrafter says:

    Cool, I’m not so sure if there is going to be one for my area for my brother to take part in. It’s up in the air at the moment, but please keep me posted on your siblings!

  31. 1 .8. 5 says:

    My little brother placed 3rd, and my little sister placed 4th or 5th…she says 4th, most other people say 5th πŸ™‚
    He still has 2 more years though, and she has 3, so hopefully one of them will advance next year.

    By the way, a few friends of mine started a blog that I’m now co-author of:

  32. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Woops, I hit the wrong button.
    The site address is as follows:

  33. the steelers fan [whos sad for his friend] says:

    sorry about the pats man.. so i was wondering do you like family force 5

  34. WordCrafter says:

    Cool, I like the site. So when you say you are a co-author, does this mean that you write reviews? And I forgot again, but 1 .8. 5 correlates to your 2009 spelling bee number, right?

  35. WordCrafter says:

    Dude! Haven’t seen or talked to you in a while. We’ve got to figure out some way to get together. Yeah, the Patriots are out.
    But they made it to the playoffs, unlike a certain black and gold team I know. πŸ˜‰
    I’ve heard of Family Force 5, but haven’t actually listened to their music. I sent you an email the other day, did you get it? I’ll send you another or give you a call later today or this week sometime.

  36. 1 .8. 5 says:

    Yep, I write reviews

    haha that’s okay πŸ˜‰ You’re right, 185 is my 2009 SNSB number.

    Well I better get back to studying – big algebra test coming up…

  37. WordCrafter says:

    Yeah! I think your parents would rather have you study than look at my blog, but I don’t mind!

  38. 1 .8. 5 says:

    It’s all good…I passed πŸ˜›

    (However, do you have any idea how hard it is to take a test with a 2 year old trying to scribble all over my project record books?? Which happened to be due today…haha oh well. I had to redo part of it anyway)

    Wow…hard to believe it’s been around 8 months since the Bee.

  39. WordCrafter says:

    Yeah, it has been 8 months. Hard to believe how time flies. What are project record books?

  40. the steelers fan [whos sad for his friend] says:

    yes an awesome superbowl….go saints

  41. hawaiiandude says:

    Who Dat?….. Saints!!!!!!!!!!

  42. WordCrafter says:

    Yeah, Who is Dat? Oh my…… the SAINTS!!!!!!

  43. spazmuffin says:

    Yo. Hey has anyone BESIDES me got the new TobyMac album yet!?!?!?! It be very very awesome!!!
    Also I heard that the east coast has got some snow… meaning ALOT of snow… we has lots of snow here too in the midwest. It be awesome, right???

  44. 240 says:

    Cool idea for the Commenting Page. I like the story you are posting and how you talk about sports a lot. IM A SPELLER!

  45. 240 says:

    Guess what? I won the South Dakota state spelling bee again, so I’m going to Nationals for the SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR! Awesome, huh?

  46. WordCrafter says:

    Congratulations! The Bee is a lot more fun your second time around! I wish you the best of luck!

  47. CharlieBrown says:

    Love the new look!

  48. Gerbil says:

    Love the game of the week. I suggest either flash element td, or disputed galaxy for next week.

  49. Gerbil says:

    Hey, what about another game of the week, come on. it’s been a while

  50. WordCrafter says:

    I have not had time to do a GotW, although you have given me an idea.

  51. 462 says:

    Hey! I haven’t been on the website in a while. I like the redesign and the “Overheard” comics a lot. Keep up the good work!

  52. 462 says:

    I saw on your personal page (“About Me”) that you play Settlers of Catan. I played it for the first time with my friend a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s awesome! haha πŸ™‚

  53. Ruth says:

    Good morning, Santos,

    Apparently it’s drum solo week on David Letterman next week. I’m not a David Letterman fan and it’s far past my bedtime so I don’t think I’ll catch it. I wouldn’t mind having TiVo at a time like this because I would like to see the performances – especially Neil Peart who will be performing the drum solo finale of the week on Thursday, June 9th. πŸ™‚ Maybe I’ll be able to catch it on youtube.

    I thought you might be interested in catching the performance so thought I’d share the info:



  54. Ruth says:

    PS – There is a link for catching Letterman shows after the fact so if it is not convenient to watch next week, you can still watch later.


  55. WordCrafter says:

    Yes, Settlers is one of my favorite boardgames. Isn’t it great? There is so much possibility with each game, it’s never the same thing twice.

  56. WordCrafter says:

    Ah! Drum solos! I will be looking at this more in depth!

  57. Ruth says:

    Hello Santos πŸ™‚ I don’t know if you or your dad check out but here’s a great interview with Neil Peart I thought you might enjoy. It has the solo from the Letterman show embedded in it although you can get that on youtube as well. You may have already caught it but links to the interview and the solo on Letterman are below.

    The man is an octopus! πŸ™‚

  58. Well, if we’re talking drum solos, then this one is the favourite in the Lovegrove household πŸ˜‰

    Hope the soccer tournament went well today πŸ™‚

  59. WordCrafter says:

    Thank you all the for the drum solo videos! Unfortunately, we lost our game in the tournament today. Better luck next season!
