Or be given a season ticket for Easter Road if they were really bad. The boy, finally showing a bit of loyalty, learned to respond to any "Hibees!" chants with an instant reply of "St Mirren!", although out of wickedness his sister has started chanting even louder for Hibs. Carl F. Bucherer ???r?

perpetually feel that they are somehow always behind.C. area typical dates when afternoon high temperatures average 70-85 degrees span from late April to early June and from early September to early October Its no wonder these are some of the more popular months for weddings The wild card during these periods is precipitation which is why Step 2 of our plan (below) is so important If you want to eliminate the chance of rain consider a destination wedding at a location that has distinct dry seasons (eg southern California and some tropical islands)When choosing your date also consider the time of day during which you plan to hold your outdoor events If youre planning an evening reception temperatures will be falling and you may want to pick a day using low temperatures as the criteria instead of highs; if your ideal temperatures range from 70-85 degrees that would mean a summer wedding might make more sense than one in the late spring or early fall when it may turn cold at night2 Develop a back-up planTheres an old saying: "Climate is what you expect weather is what you get" In other words weather averages are no guaranteee The dates highs may average 75 but that doesnt mean you wont face a chilly 50 or a sweltering 95 For example the average Washington high for Oct 29 is 64 degrees but this year that date Unless youre holding an outdoor wedding in a desert you have to be prepared for the chance of rain Determine how and where youll move your event if theres precipitation or extreme temperatures Discuss this back-up plan with caterers florists musicians and other key players ahead of time When deciding whether or not to move your wedding into a climate-controlled environment consider the comfort and health of your guests especially the elderly who may be especially sensitive to heat cold and getting wet3 Dont start checking the forecast until a week before your weddingYou might be able to get a general idea of what the day will be like a week ahead of time but a detailed reliable forecast probably wont be available until a few days before the eventThe most challenging forecasts to deal with are those that include a 30 percent chance or so of thunderstorms Thats because these storms are often widely scattered and develop unpredictably In these situations one site might get drenched while another 10 miles away stays bone dry Our advice: find the weather geek attending your wedding (theres usually at least one) and give him or her radar duty With radar information accessible on most most free weather apps your helpful guest can warn you if a storm is bearing down4 Embrace whatever weather you getJust because you cant control the weather doesnt mean it needs to be a source of stress By understanding the range of weather possibilities for your wedding day and preparing for all of them you can check "weather" off your to-do list and rejoice in your special day rain or shineJason Samenow is Chief Meteorologist for washingtonpostcoms This article is an updated version of a wedding weather story he first published in 2009MORE WEDDINGS & ENGAGEMENTS D. the United States should punish Syria??s government for allegedly using banned weapons. 50 percent support using military force if it were limited to missiles from U. out of reach of the passersby.

Man, when I was in elementary school, I didn't really care what i was wearing. Maybe I'm just getting old, but spending 45 bucks on cool rocker boots for your ten year old, that she'll outgrow by the end of first semester seems a little silly to me.

These are all great basic pieces that will last my kids a little longer than super trendy stuff, but they are also super cute!
