This is going to be an action packed blog entry… buckle your seat belts.
First and foremost, sixteen posts ago I passed the 100 mark for blog entries. Yay!
Second, yesterday was the Fourth of July… we invited some people over to my parent’s place for some swimming, cooking out, and a little fireworks fun. I captured some of the excitement with my camera. All the fireworks shots were from our neighbor’s later that night.
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.
Haffey came up big this past week with an OUTSTANDING link to a couple very useful sites:
Windows XP Post SP2 Update Pack, which let’s you update your media with the latest updates to save time after building machine by not having to patch them. It also has some other add-on tools that are pretty cool.
The other site is tlbox, which is a great repository of various tools (in our link we have focused on System Admins, but there are others to choose from) that you can integrate into Firefox. Kudos to you, sir, for the awesome links.
I have some friends that are really into Guitar Hero, so the next two links are all about them. If you are into GH, you are welcome to enjoy them as well.
Alright, on to our Wednesday feature.. LIFE CHANGING TIPS AND TRICKS!!!! 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 Geni.com 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:
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.
It’s May already… I’m severely behind on photos, so I vow to take some this weekend as we have some photo worthy things in hand as well as a wedding to attend this weekend. Long time family friend, Martin, will be tying the knot with his lovely bride-to-be, Karyn… more on this story as it develops. 😉
We’ll round out this massive post with two videos; First, have you wanted to get into the newest season of The Sopranos but felt you’ve missed to much to really understand what’s happening? Well, your prayers have been answered because a seven minute refresher of everything so far is here. Adult situations, violence, and language await you on the other side of the link. If you can handle those, it is a good watch.
Lastly, Alanis Morissette recently did a parody of “My Humps” by Fergi (Black Eyed Peas).
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.
