Coastal Currents (Carowinds)

I call it the lazy river, but this was the last thing we did at the waterpark at Carowinds. You grab a float and you just let the waters carry you around. 

My Niece's Field Trip to Strawberry Hill USA

 My sister-in-law Tiffany (her mom) got to see Little K on her school class' field trip to Strawberry Hill USA which is a big farm north in our county. Kids got to pick out pumpkins I guess.

Fact of the Day: Lincoln Tennessee and Louisiana

While the U.S. Civil War wasn't over by 1864, Louisiana and Tennessee were controlled by the union by that time and some were able to vote in the presidential election with both states voting for the Lincoln/Johnson ticket. Though Congress officially didn't count the votes from the state's electors, though it wouldn't have been big enough to change the outcome.

Things I Hate: The Great Cave Offensive Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

 Super Smash Bros. has had some odd stages over the years, but nothing quite as awful as this mess. It's based on the mini-game of the same name from Kirby: Super Star. It's a giant stage where you can barely see your own fighter.

Things I Like: Skyloft Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

 I remember this one from Smash 4 on 3DS. It's ultimately based on the Skyloft area of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, one of the best games on the Nintendo Wii and one of my favorite Zelda games ever.
