My wife’s wookie calendars are on sale through eBay just in time for the holidays (and the new year). I played the wookie, so I can recommend them for their charismatic character. If you’re a Star Wars fan (or a fan of 6′ 6″ red heads in wookie costumes), you should head over and buy… Continue reading Chewbacca 2007 Calendars for Sale
And it’s Fall! I’ve literally been counting down the days for the last week. Fall marks the end of shaving, cooler temperatures, Halloween, Autumnal smells, among many others. I look forward to what this season will bring us. I believe one thing it will bring us this year is a visit to the corn maze… Continue reading The Fall of Summer
We took Balthazar to see “Monster House” this past weekend. He really enjoys watching movies, so when there’s something appropriate on for his attention span, we love to take him. This time was a little different. He’s been watching the previews on TV and specifically requested “Monster House.” We were so impressed that he made… Continue reading Monster House, A Review
Don’t you miss the days when your friends were as close as a boy and his blackberry? Those long summer days when you sought out your squishy compadres for their bulbous, inky selves. I sure do. Seeing Balthazar these days really makes me reminescent. … What the $@#%!?! Why does this kid befriend a blackberry?… Continue reading Blackberry Friends
Summer has officially landed and to mark the event, the Sun moved 1 million miles closer to Earth. I can tell because how damned hot it’s been lately. If this is any sign of what’s to come by August, nothing green will survive. My lawn is already crispy and brown.
Summer has officially ended and Fall begins today (roughly). I’ve noticed some change in the leaves, but I couldn’t be certain it wasn’t just the dry climate as of late. As it turns out, it was just timely preparation for the end of the growing season. Enter my favorite season and some cooler weather.
While I slept last night, summer crept out onto the lawn and deposited itself. I found it this morning, smothering everything in sight in a moist haze. She’s a sneaky glutton, but we always know she’s coming. Now summer is here and things can start to really warm up. May your longest day be spent… Continue reading Welcome to Summer!
Internet Explorer 7 will be releasing sometime this summer (as currently planned) to retrofit a browser losing popularity in the latest war. FireFox has gained an unimaginable 10%+ of the market in a very short period of time. I, myself, have been swayed to gear my development efforts towards FireFox’s support model. From what Dean… Continue reading FireFox: 1, IE 7: -1
From what I’m reading, spring starts earlier now. I missed this fact growing up – perhaps no one cared enough to tell me. But Space.com tells us (scientifically) that spring starts no later than March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. In fact, it actually starts on March 19th for all but the eastern states. There’s… Continue reading Spring is Nigh!
Amazon is showing the world premier of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie due this summer. The date slid forward to April 29th, which is really awesome. Who wanted to wait until May 6th in the first place?!? I’m eagerly anticipating this one; it looks really great!
