A Great Cause and A Great Prize

John Hawkins at Right Wing News tells us about a raffle being held by Society of Saint Vincent De Paul.

The grand prize includes 4 days in New York, a $3000 shopping spree, and a meeting with Bill O’Reilly. Heck, third prize is 2 Super Bowl tickets!¬†They’re charging a $100 bucks a pop for the raffle tickets — and of course, the money they make will go to their charity.

So go see John’s post and, as they say, read it all.

Transformers3 in Chicago

We went downtown yesterday to see what we could see of the filming. This is a setup on Wacker Drive, a vehicle crushed by fallen building parts.


We saw a bit of filming when we were down on the river. At the water taxi stop (which was not in use this weekend because of the filming) we saw a bunch of actors portraying soldiers fighting and then retreating from something we couldn’t see…


We also saw Ratchet!


Happy Fourth of July

We participated in two parades today!
