Utah County/Hollywood Trivia

  • Julianne Hough (2 time winner of "Dancing with the Stars") was previously engaged. I didn't realize until now that she was previously TWICE engaged to Zach Wilson (winner of "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" and a previous BYU Young Ambassador).
  • Todd Herzog, an LDS kid who graduated from Pleasant Grove High School in 2003, won "Survivor, China" (and $1 million) last December!
  • I was so impressed by Brooke White's performance last night on American Idol that I immediately bought and downloaded 3 Pat Benatar mp3s. Brooke is not from Utah County, but she is in Jet's L.A. ward, and Jet is from Utah County - so I counted her!

A Fridge in the Garage!

Bruce and I decided to get a new refridgerator for the garage. The one we have now seems inconsistent, especially in the winter when we often find the frozen food thawed. We looked at Costco then went to R.C. Willey where the helpful salesperson revealed the problem. I previously thought that the freezer and the fridge had separate thermostats and that they were cooled separately. Not so! There is only one thermostat, and it is in the freezer. If the freezer temp gets too low, the cooler turns on in the freezer and some of the cool air goes to the fridge. In the winter, if the garage temperature gets too cold, the freezer cooler doesn't turn on. Often, as with this very cold winter, the garage temperature keeps the freezer from turning on at night so the food begins to thaw. If/when the temp warms up enough during the day the freezer turns back on and the food refreezes. We evidently don't need a new fridge - only a new place for the fridge, or warmer winters!

Proud of Jet!

Five students entered the FIDM (The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) Digital Media major last April. It is a one year program. Jessica is the only of the five who will graduate on time at the end of March! The others need more semesters to finish. No wonder she has been SO BUSY! Here is a link to the school website:
