Hello good people… I’ve got some links and things to share today and of course the Wednesday feature: LIFE CHANGING TIPS AND TRICKS!!!! How to Sleep Better, some really great tips and information about getting better quality sleep. Also, they changed around the How-To site I’ve been using it looks a lot nicer now.
Howdy folks! It’s been a crazy week and we’re only halfway done. Started off in shorts and 78 degrees with sun to spare and today it’s cloudy, 31 degrees and it’s starting to snow a little. Ahh, global warming.
hehe.. cheesy title for tips -n- tricks day. This should be a very good entry though.
LIFE CHANGING TIPS AND TRICKS!!!! Have a password? Of course you do, who doesn’t these days. Here is an extremely important read for you, go ahead and click through to read the linked blog in the story too. Be safe with your information.
I created a orkut profile and invited a couple people to be my friends… but looking at my list of email contacts maybe I just put it on here and those interested can contact me about an invite. From the site:
orkut.com is a new social networking service named for the Google engineer who developed it, Orkut Buyukkokten. (Orkut is easier to spell and pronounce than Buyukkokten.) It was created as an independent project to help people around the world connect.
Anyway, let me know if you are interested in joining up. It’s like MySpace but less cluttered and less crazy unreadable profiles.
Wednesday is upon us… halfway to the weekend, well at noon anyway.
We’re going to my friend James’ wedding this weekend in French Lick, Indiana then driving to Edinburgh to stay the night and go to the outlet mall there on Sunday. Kind of a mini-vacation, we’ve been working on the house nearly every weekend so this will be a good break.
LIFE CHANGING TIPS AND TRICKS!!!! I’m seeing weather reports that are saying that Spring is on the way and that warmer weather is coming soon. In the meantime (was 5 here yesterday with windchill), here’s some helpful information on saving someone that has fallen through some ice.
Peyton Manning celebrates his birthday as the host of SNL! I haven’t watched a live airing of SNL in ages, this one I will be watching. I watched the IU vs. Northwestern game the other day… that was more thrilling than it needed to be. It was cool to see Wilmont break the IU 3 point record in a game though.
Haffey sent me a nice link on how to optimize your computer, whether you are running Vista or XP. Check it out. Thanks Haffey.

I think the feature stuff is fun, as it gives me extra motivation to post on the days where I have a specific feature… like Tips and Tricks or Friday Funnies. So I’m going to add one for Thursdays:
This day in history This should be a fun feature… I will put things things in this feature that happened within the last week that were of historical interest and/or humorous interest. For the first installment we’ll stay on the serious side, but definitely interesting. On this day in 1692, the Salem Witch Trials began. There is a lot of interesting reading at that link, with a ton of external links if you really wanted to dig in to the subject.
I try normally not to embed videos on consecutive days but this is an amazing piece of hardware and I’ve watched the video about 4 times myself already.
Late entry: So as a parent, stories about daycare tend to catch my eye… This story on MSNBC is very interesting and a bit worrisome. I think we were very lucky to find such a GREAT daycare when we lived in Nebraska. After moving to Indiana our first daycare experience was horrible but have again been lucky that we were able to move him to the daycare where I work. It’s an amazing daycare available for us to use and it keeps Carson close to me as well. I hope that other parents have all the luck we’ve had and none of the horrible experience.
Hey! Did you know they are changing Daylight Saving Time? Yea, well… it might mess up some of your gadgets. So read here to learn more. “What?? They changed DST??” you say? Why yes they did! Dirty, dirty monkeys… if you ask me.
So it’s that time again… Friday Funnies This week we visit GU Comics.. Gamer-centric comic, that covers everything surrounding gaming. Normally short paneled and gets right to the funny.
