Yesterday when I was out on one of my “fun” quests (see yesterdays post about the printing of the poster), I found a Red Swingline Stapler. You know like the one Milton had in the movie “Office Space” and no I did not pay the $30 that you will see on websites. It was just[…]

About 6 months ago, I turned off the guestbook on my site because of spammers. I have still been seeing in my server logs that the spammers are still trying to put entries in there, but not seeing any real legitimate traffic to that page, and I have not gotten any complaints about it not[…]

I think that peta has lost it, they claim fish are smarter the dogs. Well I might give them that when I look into the eyes of my Bettas they do seam to have some intelligence to them. But that is just antidotal evidence and no way to form a campaign. Even if fish are[…]

This is cool I just found a web site that lists blog of people that are in the Pittsburgh area. The only problem when they list places people might live they did not list the neighborhood of Pittsburgh, so I just filled in the “other field” and put in Oakland. Well technically I should have[…]

Well it came out in some newspaper that Bush uses an iPod. In my option a non-story, who cares what music play the President uses. Yet I seen a lot of liberals on-line today say that 1) the iPod is not cool anymore 2) they will not use an iPod since Bush uses one. Come[…]

Today on my biking trip, I went up onto to Mt. Washington. I took the incline up, there is no way any one could really get up to the top of Mt. Washington without either a motorized auto or the incline, it is just to steep to get up. Came down I Sycomore St. It[…]

Last year I picked up one of those disposable cameras. It was a waterproof one. I picked it up to take some pictures while kayaking. The problem was I only used 17 of the 27 pictures while out on the water. So I had left the camera in my bike back all the time since[…]

My aquarium is starting to get over grown with the plants that I have put in there. I am very pleased with how it is going. I wanted plenty of places for the fish to hid, and the free O2 that the plants would make for the tank. Some of the plants that I put[…]

Last night while I was feeding my fish in my 20 Gal tank I decided to see what would happen if I just held the food in the tank. Well most of the fish were (naturally) still afraid of me so they did not come for the food, but 3 of my fish swam right[…]
