Letter From the Webmaster!
Hello everyone and welcome to another fun and informative newsletter! First of all we would like to say Happy Birthday to our Nephue Nathan! Happy Birthday to youuuu! Happy Birthday to youuuu! May you have many more.
Did everyone have a great Easter this year? Well we had a very quiet Easter this time because work got the best of us and we had to work through the Holiday. We still managed to get in some good holiday meals though! ha ha ha!
Now that Easter is over we have to get ready for Mothers Day this month. For those of you who need a reminder...... Mothers Day is May 14th. Don't forget.
Now that the warmer weather is here, the smell of the neighbors grills are sending me in hog heaven. hahahahaa - I really love this time of the year and theres nothing that we like better than BBQing. Just this week we decided to go and get ourselves a new gas grill. We got it all set up and then we headed to Sams to buy the large quanity of meats. We were so excited that we slapped about 4 different meats on the grill and had ourselves a feast to crisson our new grill.
Yesterday Stephen and I took a day drive down to Panama City Beach. The weather was just beautiful and we ate outside on the back porch of the Treasure Ship Restaurant. I think they call it Hooks Grill & Grogg. They have a website so you can click on it and see their menu. Its mostly Caribbean Cuisine. If you've never been here, its really neat! You can sit out on the back of the Pirate Ship and watch the fishing boats come in with their catch. Stephen and I both ate blackened Mahi Mahi and it was absolutely deeeeelishious! Here's a picture of the Restaurant below.
The Treasure Ship is a majestic 200-foot long replica of a 17th century Spanish galleon. These ships served both the Spanish who looted the New World in the 17th and 18th centuries and the pirates who in turn looted the Spanish. They were known as Treasure Ships for they brought cargo worth millions to their respective sovereigns...... Click on the ship to finish reading about it.
This Restaurant is located in Panama City Beach Florida.
Fun Pirate Pages
Well while were talking about Pirate Ships and such.......let me tell you about our Pirate Pages in our website! I'm real excited about it because I have always been interested in Pirate FolkLore and it was really fun for me to design the pages. If you like Pirates as much as I do......then go to our "Pirates Home" and have a fun time reading all that we've added. We plan on adding more information to this section later on as we do more research on the subject. Right now we have a section on "Pirate Facts", and a section on the Food that Pirates ate. We even have some actual recipes and drinks that you can try!
The new games that I added to the site this month are......
1) The wacky smart mouth Kangaroo game called Hangaroo. Its fashioned after
the old Hangman game..... its a lot of fun to hear the Kangaroo talk.
2) Click-n-Slide - This is puzzles and you have about 30 different ones to choose from. I've been having problems with this one loading though. 3) Ask Guru Joe - The kids really love this. It's not really a game I guess. Do you remember the old 8 Ball where you asked it a yes or no question? Well this is just like that except its Guru Joe that you ask. Its really cute. 4) Bubble Trouble - It's amazing just how popular bubble games are! There are hundreds of them out there and they keep designing more of them! 5) Word Lab - This one is for those of you who like word games. I'm terrible at them myself but I had to ad to the site for those who were asking for it.

The Case of the Stolen Computer
It was a marvelous summer morning when the phone rang. At first I thought it was a prank call because his voice was muffled as if done on purpose.
"Meet me at your rancher," the muffled voice said.
James Bell was greatly puzzled so he decided to go find out what the strange voice wanted. While he was on the phone he had the call traced. To his surprise the call was made from James Bell's guest house! James planned to go there immediately.
When James Bell got there he was surprised to see that his Apple note pad 2000 (small computer) was not where he left it. James searched frantically, but there was no sign of the Note Pad. It must have been stolen!! James was so shocked that he ran out of the guest house and ran smack into a fleeing man. James was stunned for a moment, but the stranger just apologized and kept going. James Bell continued up the path to his rancher.
When James Bell got there he saw a man sneaking out of his rancher and into a neighboring rancher. James Bell went over, rang the door bell and waited. After a while a man came to the door.
"Hello, how may I help you?" his neighbor asked.
"Hi, I was wondering if you saw the man that was just at my rancher?" James asked.
I am sorry I was upstairs in my bedroom the whole time and it has no windows on your side
"Well I can see that it has no windows. Now why are you hiding the stranger who was in my guest house and took my Note Pad 2000.
How did James Bell know that his neighbor was lying?
