A bit of an inside joke…

I, Reader

I, Reader is a good little piece. I'm currently well behind on my reading - a perpetual state. I'd love to stop watching TV and use an hour or two each evening to read, but I don't just sit on the couch during TV time, I'm typically watching TV, talking to Carey, working on the […]

Speaking of viruses, there's new evidence to support the idea that schizophrenia is caused by a virus. I love this stuff. Fascinating. It shows how much we still have to learn about the human body and the world in which we live.

Viruses as Weapons

Fascinating stuff. And Microsoft estimates it took 10,000 man days of labor to create ((There's no truth to the rumor that Apple responded by saying "Yeah, but engineers as smart as ours could do it in 500.))? That's over 27 years.

Jordan Responds to James

Interesting, no? I don't really care about basketball, but I do think the LeBron James thing showed what a joke ESPN has become.

A story: One day a lady ran into Pablo Picasso. "It's you - Picasso, the great artist! Oh, you must sketch my portrait! I insist." So Picasso agreed to sketch her. After studying her for a moment, he used a single pencil stroke to create her portrait. He handed the women his work of art. […]

Kiwi Twitter Client

Downloaded Kiwi the other day for Twitter. I'm still using Tweetie because it handles multiple accounts quite nicely and in a compact interface. Not a fan of Kiwi, and don't care about themes. Tweetie works well but I'd really, really, really like to see Tweetie 2.0. I know that may not occur given that the […]

Vince Flynn Books

A friend of mine recommended that I start to read Vince Flynn books. They're similar to Tom Clancy novels but without the 12-page monologues on how what someone ate for breakfast reminded him of a childhood day that slightly changed his mental makeup and eventually lead to the manner in which he treated the guy […]

In flights leaving both Pittsburgh and Phoenix (or Tempe, I suppose) I saw Backscatter machines but was not subjected to anything but the normal process of metal detectors and x-rays for bags. I was prepared to fight, too (not physically of course) if I had been selected to go through the machine. I might have […]

Food Eaten this Trip

Friday - PIT McDonald's bacon, egg, and cheese bagel (no sauce) - In-n-Out Double Double (plain), fries, chocolate shake - Fleming's Chipotle Mac & Cheese, Bacon Cheeseburger, and a can of Guinness. - Ice cream bar at the hotel Saturday - One plain Dunkin' Donuts glazed donut - Most of a double cheeseburger from the […]

Golf Evolution School in Phoenix, AZ

The day began at 5:36am when my alarm went off. Due to the time change, this worked out quite well as we went to bed at about 10:30 or so. I won't say a lot about the school except that a top-50 instructor in the world came out to observe us. He intended to stay […]

Phoenix, AZ Again

Today I'm traveling to Phoenix, AZ for a Golf Evolution golf school tomorrow. Chuck Evans, a TGM instructor and one of the top 50 guys in the world, will be observing. Looking forward to meeting him. We fly through Detroit on the way out and then Atlanta on the way home. I'm looking forward to […]

Tik-Tok Watch Band for iPod Nano

Awesome. Check it out - watch bands for the iPod Nano. But how long does the iPod Nano battery last if you always want it in watch mode? Isn't it a bit annoying to have to click to turn the watch on, or do current nanos let you leave the clock on 24/7? P.S. Clock […]
