This day in history

New Coke was introduced on April 23, 1985. Production of the original formulation ended that same week.
New Coke was the unofficial name of the sweeter drink introduced in 1985 by The Coca-Cola Company to replace its flagship soda, Coca-Cola or Coke. Properly speaking, it had no separate name of its own, but was simply the new version of Coke, until 1992 when it was renamed Coca-Cola II.

Wonderful weekend..

Saturday I went to the auction with my dad... I got a table, a rocking chair, and a painting. They sold an ambulance for $1750 there; lights, sirens, and still in its paintjob. After the auction we went to Edinburgh to the outlet mall and everybody got something on the cheap.

On Sunday we took Carson to the Zoo and met up with my parents there...







After the Zoo we went over to the Butterfly and Flower garden..




Sunday night we had a last second BBQ that was a great end to a wonderful weekend.

Miss me?

It's been awhile since I've had a real blog post... so you'll have to excuse the following flood of links I've been collecting (and receiving from Mr. Haffey).

We'll start off with the news of the cool:
I was never into model cars much, but this one is REALLY cool.
Have you seen this picture of an iPod that saved a soldiers life? Technology is your friend people, EMBRACE IT (and make a nice layer of things to stop bullets)
Rich guys get all the chicks, I have photographic proof.
Have a rampant Vampire problem where you live? Never fear, there is a solution.
Sony released a new series of displays that are ultra thin, way cool.
The Red Cross has been using a new mobile billboard in a few different places, the images are just breathtaking (scary and cool).
Remember what 5mb Hard Drives looked like in 1956? Me neither, now we both know... crazy.

Quick dip into the serious news, Chinese government restricts those under 18 to 3 hours of online gaming a day. It'll be interesting to see what effect this will have and how they will enforce it.

Alright, back to the funneh.
WTF indeed. Funny and scary pics of things geeks do, right here.
Need a friend for you desk? Get a bike riding mouse.
Know an office worker that needs a special award for their special abilities? Here you go.
Your favorite "unfortunate" domain names... sometimes you have to read them twice to get the funneh.
Be careful when you buy things to make sure the price you thought you were paying is the price you actually pay, or this could happen. LOL
Top Firefox plugins... to have and NOT to have. A good read, although they do contradict themselves at times.
Leave it to those who over analyze to bring about the existence of this web page... poor Santa.

Ok, here are a few web games/quizs that I messed around with a bit this past week.
Are you smarter than a fifth grader? Not the TV show, it's a quiz. I got a 75%.
Here's a cool block building game, remember you have to think in 3d.
This link labels itself "The Top Five Most Addictive Games".. so click here with care (and free time).

We'll round out this massive post with two videos;
First, have you wanted to get into the newest season of The Sopranos but felt you've missed to much to really understand what's happening? Well, your prayers have been answered because a seven minute refresher of everything so far is here. Adult situations, violence, and language await you on the other side of the link. If you can handle those, it is a good watch.

Lastly, Alanis Morissette recently did a parody of "My Humps" by Fergi (Black Eyed Peas).

Carson's Fourth Birthday Party

Picture Post! I'll do a news/links post later.

Carson turned four on Monday, we went out to Pizza King for his birthday dinner. For those that aren't familiar, the bring your drinks to you on a model train and you sit in booths that look like train cars.

His birthday party was on Saturday, a whole bunch of boys showed up to celebrate with him. He had a great time, despite the weather not being the best.







My friend Sean and his son Nick were among the guests, and Sean let me combine his photos into my collection... like this one.
