So long May

Out with May in with June... temperatures bordering on 90 degrees has been sign enough to me that summer was here. Now with Memorial Day over swimming pools everywhere swing open their security gates. We took a dip in our neighborhood pool last night, the water is still a bit chilly for me.

Summer brings us a whole new batch of movies (and the promise of some more to follow in the fall/winter). Here's a quick list of trailers for the ones I'll be looking to go see:

Thursday feature time,
This day in history
1911: RMS Titanic launched
RMS Titanic was an Olympic class passenger liner that became infamous for her collision with an iceberg on 14 April 1912 and dramatic sinking on 15 April 1912. Construction of the Titanic, funded by the American J.P. Morgan and his International Mercantile Marine Co., began on 31 March 1909. Titanic No. 401 was launched two years and two months later on 31 May 1911.

The Woot-Off is still cranking folks.

Curve ball

I designed a new logo today and have altered my template to compliment this new item. Please give me feedback. I'd like to know what everyone thinks.

Short weeks are good..

I like when Wednesdays feel like Tuesdays.. that means that on "Friday" I won't have to come into work.


Couple neato tech things:
Alright, on to our Wednesday feature..
Hot on the heels of the May 9 update on how to sleep on a hot night, How to stop brain freeze! It is the season for cold treats, so take the time to read this over and avoid the dreaded BRAIN FREEZE!

I have been using for sometime to record my family tree.. it's a great site with a ton of really nice tools/features.
Here is there latest feature add-ons:
If you are into genealogy and might be thinking about putting your info into a system to help organize it.. I encourage you to try out and let me know so we can be family friends. Oh, one last note from the genealogy end... someone that posts at the site wrote a good guide on how to use social networking sites to find relatives.

How about a quick movie review? Alright, we took Carson to go see Shrek the Third. It was really good, the whole family enjoyed it. They did very well at moving the story along from the first two movies using enough of the old schtick and characters from the previous flicks, while introducing a good amount of new material too keep it fresh. I often see movies in the theater and think that I would've been better off waiting to rent it for home viewing. Shrek the Third did not fall into that category. I will also be buying a copy to watch a few more times at home.

Finally a couple of vids:
John Stewart exposes the "Under Investigation" saying.
And PTI on ESPN features internet-style video clips... lol

Thanks to all those that came, especially Jeremy for (not) planning it and Mike for being an awesome host.

Brett came to see us!

Brett made the trek from Nebraska to come spend 4 days with us.. I tried to pack just enough stuff in without over loading our days. Having some drinks and talking seemed to fill most of our time. Here's some pics we snapped off...

Brett's Visit

It was really great having Brett out and we look forward to seeing him again soon. Keep on truckin', bro.
