Making Plans

As the Harrington's welcomed in November, they also got serious about making some decisions. The Harrington's are set on travelling to South Africa this coming summer in order to enjoy the 3rd/4th match of the World Cup. However, where the plan remained undefined was every moment after the World Cup. As July 2010 looms in a not so distant future, the Harrington's have begun to make a few more decisions regarding their "new year."

As of today, November 25, the Harrington's plan on attending an exhilarating match of football (aka: soccer) in July of 2010 at Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Following the game, the Harrington's hope to have a few weeks for pleasure and a few weeks for volunteer work somewhere on the majestic continent of Africa. Beginning in one of two fine months, August or September, the Harrington's plan to land in one of four "top-choice" Asian countries with a contract to teach sweet children or awesome adults the intricacies of speaking the English language. With a primary goal of continuing to save money, the Harrington's have narrowed thier Asian country choices down to the following four: South Korea, Thailand, China and Taiwan.

Melissa is currently certified and practicing the art of teaching English as a Foregin Language while Mike begins his coursework to receive certification in time to submit applications for the upcoming school year.

We at The Harrington Times hope you continue to check in for further decisions made by the Harrington's as the research and discuss the possibilities that lie ahead. Also, be sure to share your opinion with The Harrington's on the Times poll, posted in the upper right hand corner of this periodical.

Attention All Podcast Listeners

Due to a recent flat tire, Mike Harrington has rediscovered the joy that comes from simply walking his roughly 4-mile round trip commute to and from work. Add to that the joy of finding a working Zune in a dumpster and you have the following: A request from friends and families to provide him with recommended downloadable podcasts. These can be music, stories, meaningful news, truth or just random thoughts of random people. He would prefer some thought provoking listening to gear him up for his "exciting" day at school. Any thoughts?

Of Football and Family

One mid-September weekend the Laramie Harrington clan; Mike, Melissa, Katie and Molly, all made the trek down south to Boulder, CO to witness the Pokes take on the Buffs and spend some quality time with the Rigg family, Mike's maternal kinsmen. Highlights of the weekend included gourmet pizza from Pearl Streets BJ's pizza, multiple games of Corn-Hole and Red-Neck Golf, Cassie's famous chocolate chip cookies, Wyoming 'Riggs' vs. All-Other 'Riggs' Kick-ball Tourney, delcious morning smoothies and breakfast sandwiches and the purchase of a brand-new board game called: Quelf. Unfortunately, the weekend was also marked by the UW Cowboys playing a less-than-impressive game of football in the company of less-than-impressive CU fans (and even a few UW fans). The Harrington clan enjoyed spending time with cousins they've lost connection with or are just having the opportunity to know. There were many opportunities to laugh, learn and enjoy the presence of family.
