Let’s Make a Love Connection – Bachelors

Love is in the air here at the Hotel Thompson.   Valentines Day is right around the corner.  It’s a special day .  You see mom and dad got engaged on Valentines Day many, many, many years ago – snorts.

Our pet rocks here are growing and want to do something special for Valentine’s Day.  They are willing to be involved in the making of a love connection.  Kind of like a twist between the Bachelor and the Dating Game.

We now have three men rocks – Manny, Benedict and Bashful.  We also now have three women rocks – Princess Coralena, Virginia and Rockelle.  We are putting love to the test and are counting on you for help.

We are going to let you our blog friends VOTE on who goes out on a date with who for Valentines Day.  I will post their ‘date night’ on Monday, February 17, 2014.  What they did, where they went, what troubles they got into.  You know all of the juicy behind the scenes stuff.

Today we vote for the guys.  Who will go out on a date.  Here’s a little bio of each for you to decide.


Bachelor #01 – Manny

Manny comes to us from France via Easy.  He is a lover, has humor but is French and knows how to use it.  He sweeps women off of their rocks in just a matter of a few words.  Manny is also an excellent chef specializing in French cuisine.

Manny’s view on love, “I am French.  It’s all about the woman and my love for her.  One day I will meet the rock that makes my mustache curl and I will know it is her.  I will treat her like the Queen she is.”



Bachelor #02 – Benedict Cumberock

Benedict Cumberock comes to us from the United Kingdom via Misaki.  He’s a wonderful addition to the Hotel Thompson.  Has a great sense of humor, makes everyone laugh and loves to play games.  He has a sensitive side and quite the history buff.

Benedict’s view on love,  “What matters most is what is on the inside and I have lots of love there.  When I finally find that special woman who looks past my eyes, I will be in heaven and there’s no place like that.”



Bachelor #03 – Bashful

 Bashful started out here at the Hotel Thompson.  He was a donation to me so that I would have a bit of company.  Bashful has a wicked sense of humor with lots of love and a huge jokester.  His favorite thing is to travel the world being an international rolling stone.

Bashful’s view on love, “Love is something special.  Something to be shared with your other half that’s meant just for you.  You treat her as special as she is for as long as you can.”

So who will it be?  Who would you like to see go on a date on Valentine’s Day.

National Weatherman’s Day


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



February 5th is National Weatherman’s Day. This day honors weather people who work hard in trying to predict our fickle weather. Despite major technological advances, forecasting the weather is still a little tricky and always changing.

The weather affects how the humans dress in going outside in the elements and nature. They watch the wonderful television weather forecasters to dress accordingly. They don’t have the fur coats like we do… well most of them don’t – I heard that Bacon’s daddy is pretty hairy though – hee hee

According to the Air Force News, Weatherman’s Day commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America’s first weatherman. Jeffries was born on February 5, 1744. He kept weather records from 1774 until 1816 – unbelivable!

If you see a weatherman today or you have access to a computer, give them your appreciation for a job well done!

I know that I and Bacon would like to give giant shout-outs to our local weather team that we watch daily. We *always* watch our favorite Fox 5 Storm team. We believe they are the *best* in keeping our humans safe in nature. Here you go –
