It was a clear night and we walked down to the butterfly garden and there must have been a uncountabillion moths (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) which I'm not sure is bad or good. I know our hummingbird moth is here every night. Then a couple hours later once my head hit the pillow about 10:45 all I could hear were frogs. On the other side of the fairway is an abandoned quarry which my dad would be flipping out over if he was alive and I was like 10. He was always telling me not to go near the quarry ... market research, surveys and trends

American Airlines returns to Columbus Airport
Betting it can grab a profitable share of the Columbus travel market, American Airlines flew back into the city Thursday after an absence of nearly 15 years. But that bet is hedged by about $650,000 in incentives from the Columbus Airport Commission, which is waiving typical landing fees, rent, security fees and other charges for the first year of service here.
