    I played in roller hockey nationals. We were a rag tag bunch, from a place where hockey is not popular. Even though we had limited experience, we fought hard and played closely with some of the best players in the country. I also competed in the first and only pool tournament ever sponsored by Donald Trump. The "Trump 10 Ball Challenge was slated to be a huge event, which happen to coincide with a 4 ft blizzard in 2003. We had a tournament, but more than half the filed couldn't get there due to the weather. My friend and I went anyway, and we had a blast.

      Hi rclinton5280. Your experiences are really worth remembering for. It's awesome to be part of Trump 10 Ball Challenge. And playing roller hockey despite of limited experience shows great spirit and determination. Thanks for sharing.

    Living on a farm and raising all the animals!  Getting up at 4am just to feed them all and doing it all day every day!  Doing this growing up taught me a lot about life and how I wanted mine to be.  I miss the farm and the animals every day and would love to have the chance for my kids to grow up like I did.....

      Hi CassyLu1981. Farm is really a good place to stay/live. Like you I grew up in a farm and I also have lots of childhood memories. Wish that your children will experience the way that you did - enjoy farm living.

    I  have travelled across this beautiful county from coast to coast. I have seen major land marks, historic sites, and amazing wonders that God has created.  I hope that one day, I will be blessed to take my own children on this trip, as my family did me.
