Naturally, we are selling these on eBay motors. That should be an adventure.
Here's what my weeds look like in my backyard, before I covered them in weed killer.
I have a suspicion that these particular weeds aren't killed by this weed killer. They are a sort of super weed. And, every time I spray them with this weed killer they are, in fact, growing stronger.
I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do, as I'm a bit concerned that my back lawn may soon be more weed than grass.
Actually, I do know what I'm going to do: read about the problem and spend money at the hardware store buying supplies and tools. It won't fix the problem, but it'll make me feel like I'm doing something.
This one's for you Brady. As promised, here are some more pictures of yourself on the web.
It only slightly blows my mind that Brady is 6, and is quite excited to see his likeness on the web. And specifically asked me to put more pictures up of him.
Had a fun lunch with Danielle and Brady, though we did miss the rest of the gang.
You know you have a complete reference guide to all knowledge when it includes drinking games.
I wonder if the 20+ volume set of encyclopedia's my parents own contain any tidbits like this. Somehow I doubt it.
I got the best surprise at work the other day. I brought them home today, so that we could enjoy them here, too. (And because they needed another round of stem-cutting, and frankly, usually Ben does that, and I already did it on the day they came, so now it was his turn.) Thank you, Ben.
Different people have different perceptions. To some, components are classes; to others, they are mixins. Microsoft advertises COM and DCOM (now ActiveX) as a framework for component programming; Corba is their major competition in the commercial world.I wonder what components should be to me?
This is an article on PLT Scheme units, which are related to ML Functors.
It's an interesting read because it reminds you that there are different mechanisms for packaging and combining software components other than Java style OO.
Finished Sharp's Escape.
I think it was quite good. Lots of excitement, and really enjoyable characters. I think it also helped that the narrorator did a good job with the voices.
Apparently there are quite a few more books in this series, so I look forward to reading them.
Scores: funness: 8 out of 10, educational value: 7 out of 10, listenability: 8 out of 10.
I have been given the job of trimming the trees by the house. I figure I have 3 options...
(A) call a pro; (B) get a friend to help and bribe them with food; (C) buy a ladder and chainsaw and ladder and do it myself.
(C) would be fun, except for the extra time in the emergency room.
What option should I choose? (Use comments button to respond)
Due to a logistical error, my birthday present from Shira's parents and Grandma was delayed. But, boy was it worth the wait!
Yesterday I was presented with quite a few books and goodies off of my Amazon Wish List.
Here's what I got: Thread Across the Ocean; The Fountainhead; Secret Architecture of DC; Hikes in Northern Virginia; Sneaky Ues for Everyday Things; Home Hacking projects for Geeks; nmates are Running the Asylum; Spooner; Tennis Doctor Lawn Bible; Who Moved My Cheese; Grundig Emergency Radio; 4 in 1 Pen.
Quite frankly, I don't know where to start -- all the books and goodies seem so interesting.
Thanks MIL, FIL and GIL  for an incredible birthday gift!

Shira wanted a small mp3 player to use at the gym. She found the model she wanted, it was $84.99 on amazon.com.
Today we went into Best Buy. They had the same model Shira wanted, though they wanted $105.00 for it.
So, I asked if they would price match against amazon. Of course the rep said no. So I found a manager and showed her the product on the amazon page using my sidekick. I told her, if she matched the price I'd buy the item.
She matched. I bought.
Now maybe Shira will have just a tad bit more appreciation for my sidekick. Maybe.
I finally got to work from a comfy office with natural light pouring in. Which is just my way of saying I'm working from home.
I'm not sure I could function in a non-cube environment for more than a day or two at a time. It would be too quiet, and who would I talk to about politics and religion?
Just got finished getting Shira's new bracelet *repaired*. Nothing like buying jewely with the express purpose of having it last, and then having it break less than 24 hours later.
The bright side? Easy, I get to give Shira the gift again, which gives me just a little more credit than giving it to her once.
Beamer suggests this is almost along the lines of the Seinfeld re-gifting scheme.
The good news: went TV shopping, and with the help of Justin and Jenna found a nice 27" TV. We even bought it.
The bad news: it was totally broken when we got home. As in glass not attached to plastic, and plastic cracked broken.
But, on a good note we had fun, learned a lot and saw Shira and Jenna play with dance-dance-revolution.
