Cool Par-tay

I have to give my brother-in-law credit…he knows how to throw a great kids party. Today was the joint party for the 3yo and the 5yo, and there was a moonwalk (shaped like a birthday cake, which looked really funny when you came down the street) and Bob’s piece-de-resistance, a homemade wooden ramp and a […]

That was my phone

I should point out that the post below was made on my phone. I cannot figure out how to get my email function to insert an upper case letter (as in “I”) when it doesn’t follow a period. How stupid is that? I mean, I could do the e.e.cummings thing, but I’d rather have you […]

Is It Safe?

I’m headed up to get the lawnmower. I assume Friday is sufficienty after “this afternoon” on Thursday for it to be ready. I’m not sure if we’re going to eat lunch at the diner again – we might not make it before we’re overcome with hunger. Also this is a quick in-out day because my […]

I’m Busy That Day

Oh hey, ya, I’m not still walking. Didn’t want to confuse anyone. Although if I were, it’s almost 24 hours later so I could be headed for the Berkshires, I suppose. I’m not one for doing Marathon walks unless they occur at, say, Epcot. I’m sure the stats are out there, but it’s got to […]

Testing New Browser

I just downloaded Mozilla’s beta release of Firebird and I’m giving it a test fly. Actually, I think it rocks and I’ll probably make it my default browser if after a week I don’t have any major issues with all my regular sites. Oh, and the sun just came out so I’m going to go […]

The Army’s Mad Lab

For folks who don’t read the comments, I wanted to pull up the article Adam mentioned about how the process for creating McNuggets was invented in Natick MA. The Army’s Mad Lab
