It’s Memorial Day weekend which as everyone knows is in memory of the barbecue and grill manufacturers. The title of this post has nothing to do with Veterans (to which I am genuinely and sincerely indebted, I appreciate the sacrifices and lives of those who served, and are serving now) or grills though. This post has to do with Abby and the mutilation of words.
Abby wiped her nose today and said, “Burgers.” I’d much rather eat hamburgers than Abby’s burgers
I’m working on a small time tracking program (since I have to keep my hours recorded for billing purposes) which I call TymeTraq (because I can’t find another name that’s not taken ). I may post screen shots in the future, and please feel free to request information if you might be interested in
- using it
- testing it
- Buying it if you’re Microsoft
I’ve got a Mozilla sidebar page as well that allows it to reside in my browser without effecting other things I”m doing (like working on WorldClient).
Please pray for one of our elders who had a heart attack this last week. He’s doing better, but has some surgery later this week. Fortunately he had the heartattack two weeks after his daughter’s wedding and not two weeks before, or some other really bad time (as if there’s a good time for heart attacks).
God’s grace is evident throughout this whole situation and it was good to hear an update this morning since we have a Cardiologist at the church, Bob Eckel [scroll down], who could explain what was happening on both a technical expertise level and then a layman’s level [thank goodness for the simple explanation for those of us who are medically challenged]. Hal’s heart was not permanently damaged according to testing and with the operations all should be back to normal. It looks like the bicycle ride he was planning on will be postponed some though
Well, we’re somewhat discouraged by this whole process. Abigail is being tough in her determination to not submit to our wishes for her to tell us when she needs to go potty. We’re sticking it out, but mostly because she’s very obviously (via attitude, which is incredibly cocky for 21 months) ready for this and choosing not to obey!
This causes us to dig in and want to get this over with all the sooner. We’ll see, if by weeks end she doesn’t have this mostly down we’ll probably give her another month and then try the regiment again. We think she gets it though as she usually goes to be by herself when she has to go potty and then comes out with the surprise package.
I’ve been getting a lot of linke from www.google.com with people looking for WordPress information. I’d be interested, if you arrive here some how, in answering any questions you’ve got. I’ve been totally impressed with how clean, efficient and customizable the software is. Please feel free to leave a comment (which I’m moderating, sorry). If you leave your email address I’ll get back to you within 24-48 hours with an answer or a URL that may contain the answer. I’m not the author of the software, but I’m a real fan of his.
This noon we went to the Barnes & Noble and looked at their discount books (which can sometimes be rewarding). I saw two ‘treasures’ there that I must cher about.
- 18 more vampirical erotic stories
- A Civil War Popup book
If your mind is as overactive as mine you’ve already had a good time with the given descriptions.
I looked at the first book and I thought, “More?” Did America respond popular to the first eighteen vampirical erotic books? Were American’s looking for that sort of material? I saw Van Helsing, I enjoyed a little vampirical novelty, but adult vampire books? No thanks. I can only imagine what they could do with that sort of ‘food for thought.’
And regarding the civil war popup book. Close your eyes and imagine a grandchild on their grandpa’s lap saying, “Grandpa turn the page, I want to see the guy get his head blown off with the cannonball.” What do we need a popup book of death for? Really. “Mom, can you please read the civil war popup book to me again? I really love to see the flames leap up as Georgia burns.” I vote we not sell silly books like that.
You know you’re a web development junky when you are reading an ‘Arthur’ [kids cartoon] book to your daughter and you come across the acronym “D.W.” and instantly think ‘DreamWeaver.’ I shutter to think of those using DreamWeaver, but lots of people use the tool. I guess I’m a nut.
The other other day I also found myself thinking, “It would be so cool to create a DHTML Tetris game using Duplo blocks as the shapes!” I think I’m sick.
Today at lunch the peas were slightly cold and the hot dog had a slightly cold end. My instant reaction internally was to think, “Jessica didn’t heat this all the way.” However, instead of being a jerk and saying something I started to think about it a little more. The real problem is that Jessica is a good cook and she’s produced a lot of amazing meals (recently some wonderful muffins) and so when she happens to prepare something that isn’t to her usually perfect standards it stands out. So, with that in mind, I’d like to say the following:
- I praise God for my bride!
- She’s a great cook
- She’s a wonderful help-mate
- As much as I tease her for being like Martha Stewart she’s got real talent and is a great hostess
onfocus.com has quite a few beautiful photos or nature and what not.
note: I haven’t viewed every photo there, but I haven’t seen anything questionable, but be warned I’ve not seen everything there, I have no control over the content on that site or its maker, or his/her/their dog if they have one.
