This video shows:
Christmas Tree harvesting at Noble Mountain Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon. Pilot Dan Clark flying a Northwest Helicopters, LLC 206B3 Jetranger November of 2008. Oregon is the nation's biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina.
The largest Christmas tree producer in the state is Holiday Tree Farms of Corvallis, shipping about 1 million trees a year. Manager Dave Silen says a shift toward more family gatherings this year could help sales. The holiday trees represent a $101 million industry in Oregon.

2016 turns out to be an interesting year coming up, a kind of watershed for online and mobile gaming. Almost 80% of the gamers worldwide are playing as mobile customers. Mobile gaming, with its large surge of players in 2013, a surge that is expected to continue, will double its growth by 2016.
What we find particularly interesting (even more than the demographic stuff like age ranges or gender or behaviours of gamers) is how popular tablet gaming is becoming. Can you guess the expected growth rate for tablets in particular?

Remember what I said yesterday? Well…
Read these Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bears Reviews. I dare you not to start crying from laughing so hard. I might not have laughed harder in the last year than I did last night reading these.

Just read these. It's funny how people can collectively join in on something…

I thought that the inclusion of iTunes Match would bump up the accuracy of another of iTunes' features - "Complete My Album." However, that does not seem to have happened.
A good example is the track "The Lifting" by R.E.M. from their album Reveal. This is a track I originally bought on the CD, ripped to iTunes myself, and which was later matched by iTunes Match.
iTunes knows I have this track. It's in its own Match database. Yet it asks me to buy it - and every other track on the album - to "complete my album"?
And it does this for a hundred other albums as well, making "Complete My Album" not only a joke, but one that can have you purchasing duplicate song and wasting your money if you are too lazy to check whether you actually own the song already.

None of their listed awards were for "Great Spelling."
The tacos were great, but the desserts were a bit dry…

I might play once in the snow (in the Ice Bowl). Twice would be a stretch…

I'm going to start figuring out how to make my own Deep Dish pizza. Real Deep Dish .com looks like a promising start… as does the Chicago Style sub-forum at pizzamaking.com.

Shirt Pocket Watch - Mavericks
For the tl;dr crowd out there, SuperDuper! 2.7.1 backs up Mavericks just fine, so we've got you covered, day-and-date, with backups.
In addition, I'm happy to announce that we will, have an even better Mavericks-compatible release 2.7.2 available shortly.
Unfortunately that post is over a month old, and 2.7.1 hasn't been updated in over a year.
… BUT, it still works fine. I just get nervous now and then when tools I rely on daily go a long time without updates. And then when their updates are blog posts that are a month old…
But I'm sure this will be fine. I look forward to the 2.7.2 update.

A strong man did this when I was in high school. Who knew it was more a magic trick than a demonstration of strength? I didn't.
P.S. I've done this, now, and it works exactly as described.n

Could it be any paler? Gee whiz. I'm all for readability of the actual events, but I should be able to tell, at a glance, where "today" sits on the calendar. My eyes should be attracted to it when I'm looking for it specifically. The pale pink barely stands out at all.
