Get back to what is important this holiday

Yesterday when we went out to get some last minute supplies for the holidays we were very stressed out and saddened by the spirits of the people out holiday shopping. First off the stores were way crowded and people were just downright mean or just plain annoying! People were either wandering aimlessly without regard to those other people around them (One great example is the lady that was in a gift basket isle with us who was shouting at the top of her lungs to someone in another isle) or they are plowing you right over and practically running through the store like wild banshees. One guy and his girlfriend were so irritated they were shouting profanities about how insane people were acting- that's a much better reaction buddy! Anyway, N commented...

Read More Commericals

While visiting other blogs tonight I was rather amused by the creativity and crisp lyrics of the commercials. As a trained vocalist I was struck by the enunciation of the words.

I got a few nice welts on my neck from the flying glass, luckily I was not cut by the glass. The explosion was so loud and startling, I thought someone was shooting up the house! This time the beer is bubbling, burping and oozing out of the...

Spock- people search

Today I decided I would try something new.. I heard about a new people finding site called Spock, I headed over to their site to see what all the talk was about. Basically they are a people search company. Spock is better than the search engines because they limit their results to just people, you wont get a bunch of spam results trying to get you to pay money to find the people you are looking for. Spock returns photos, tags that relate to the person, links to places like myspace profiles and other sites that they are showing up on. You can connect to people on, add, edit and view search results. It's kind of cool to search for a person and have return all the results from...
