The AC menagerie Bulletin

Welcome to the September 2nd addition of

 The AC Menagerie Bulletin

The AC Menagerie Bulletin is a weekly digital newspaper highlighting brief accounts of the week's happenings around the Zoo (our home) and on blogs by myself (Nita Davis). Sit back, relax and enjoy while you catch up with the Davis family.

Tech News 

I don't consider myself much of a brain when it comes to setting up or designing web pages, but generally I am able to figure things out pretty quickly. Well not this week! You may have noticed I switched comment systems on my blogs. It was suppose to be an easy switch, well let me tell you, I managed to make it very difficult. Installing, uninstalling, manually installing, uninstalling, over and over again for three hours! All that time and work to finally realize it had actually worked the very first time. The saying 'I was only wrong once and that was when I thought I had been mistaken' comes to mind.

Life News 
Spunky "Little M" turned an entire 8 years old this week! She is a bit of a football fan so this year her party had a football theme. Can you guess who her favorite team is?

Sports News
This weeks main sporting event was the keep up with "Little K" marathon. It was a short marathon, but boy did we get our exercise!

Entertainment News
Lexi and I decided it had been too long since we had a fun girls night, so we decided to host a Girls Night Party last Saturday evening. We invited the three female relatives who live in our area as well as a few female friends. A few were not able to make it but we still had a blast with the six of us that were there. It was a terrific night of music, snacks, drinks, games and best of all mega laughter with wonderful friends. At the end of the night we all agreed we should do this every month at least once.
This FB post is just one of the hilarious comments made while playing Apples to Apples.

Blogging News
I am currently in the process of revamping the look and functionality of my blogs. Artistic Composition should have its' new look by this next week, if I can stay awake that is. I would love to hear what you think of the changes. 

This week I created this bit of political satire to turn into a note card so that I have an appropriate card for corresponding with state and federal politicians over the next four years.
