On the surface, the World Series would appear to be one of life's constants. It's been played as long as I have been alive under pretty much the same rules in most of the same places with the same updated-but-recognizable equipment as when we were children.
Demographics are so passé. The cutting edge of business marketing is, apparently, generational research. However, generational research can illuminate a lot more than merely advertising messages.
Toast the Cleveland Indians for a memorable season and playoff run. Sure, we know it hurts today, but once we sit back and realize what the team has done, we will feel much better. Remember, winning isn't everything ... it's the effort that counts. Wait until next year ... Who are we trying to kid? Roast the Cleveland Indians for another monumental collapse. Up 3-1 in the American League Championship Series, the Tribe was outplayed, outreached, outhustled, out-Mannied and out-everything else, losing three straight by a combined 30-5 score. Who do you blame? Where do you start? No hitting. No pitching. No excitement. We're waiting for Eric Wedge to fall asleep in the dugout. Isn't being a sports fan in Cleveland fun?

Employers need to be aware of this change as it can mean a significant difference in premiums and this is not an area you want to be taken by surprise.

Norwalk Memorial Home The unbirthday birthday party was celebrated last week because no one had a birthday this month, which is suprising which was a surprise. Iverna played the organ and we all enjoyed the beautiful birthday cake and ice cream. Tuesday it was coffee corner, stretch, arts and crafts (which they made their very own mask for the Halloween party), and the walking club met in the evening. Wednesday it was coffee corner, Catholic communion, morning stretch, and a big game of bingo.
Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to post the highlights reel from Friday's night's St. Paul football game. We're sorry, and here's the video.

Willard FFA WILLARD Brandon Walcher, Willard FFA treasurer, accepted a &#036;1,000 check from Monsanto trap coordinator Mike Swartzmiller and Willard FFA president Dan Phillips. More than 190 FFA Chapters from Ohio, Michigan and Iowa worked with 3,700 farmer sites to collect data. The Willard chapter sampled 20 sites for which Monsanto donated &#036;50 per site. The Trap Program placed sticky traps in soybean fields in late July to see if the corn root worm adults are laying eggs in soybean fields. Normally rootworms don't lay eggs in soybean fields and the Willard data show only a few isolated cases where this is happening. The rootworm normally lays eggs in corn stalks in fields that were previously corn back to corn. Some of the adult beetles are getting smart and anticipate soybean fields being planted to corn the following year, thus lay their eggs in soybean fields.
