Amazing Human Body

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach. One human hair can support 6.6 pounds. The average man’s penis is two times the length of his thumb. Human thighbones are stronger than concrete. A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s. There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet. Women blink twice as often as men. The average person’s skin weighs twice as much as the brain. Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still. If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it. WOMEN Will […]

Face Lift!

The website has gotten a face lift and an upgrade.  I still have more work to do and lots of clean up, the typo’s and spelling errors are terrible.  Since I’ve started to do some work on other WordPress sites, I thought it might be helpful to upgrade my own site to the format.  I wasn’t sure at first but I’m actually liking the system more and more.  Admittedly, that could simply be me getting to do something different for a change…

Ideas Abound And…

I have a new idea for the site, one that seems fitting for me these past 10 years but alas, like so many, I haven’t the time or energy to work on it. I’ve started the rough sketch of my idea and keep dwelling on it but then that seems to be about as far as I can get. Perhaps this year will be different, I’d so much like to breath new life into my site. I miss it much, years ago you couldn’t pull me away from web design and playing with the latest new things when it came […]

A Website?

I love my website, I really do. I love the look, the feel and the presence but with all the other social media out there – what do you do with a personal website? Well, that and trying to keep up with both – do I post this on Facebook, on Twitter, on my website? Heck with Dropbox and Google Docs you don’t even need a website to host files. I just don’t know what to do with my personal website right now so it sits a bit dormant. I still want to flesh out a few things which are […]

Alive and Kicking…

It’s been over a year since I updated this area. I think I had a bug and just never the time to fix it. That hasn’t stopped me from updating the site, I am always trying to do new things and yesterday I added in some handy Facebook, Twitter and Lord of the Rings Online contact buttons on the footer of the main site. One of my big web goals this coming year is to redo the forums, I want to change their purpose a bit. But I have several other sites I work on, either mine or others and […]

Website Updated!

I’ve finally gotten my site upgraded! It only took two years – the first 18 months was spent trying to find a look that I liked. That only ended when I realized, I already had a look I liked! My real goal was to just make it easier to maintain. Done! The site was transferred over to a brand new management system which I am more than pleased with. So far, there’s only a few minor new things as I am still working out a few bugs. I’ve gotten loads to clean up in lots of places and well … […]

Patrick – Drama – Change

While listening to the radio during the morning commute to work the broadcaster brought up something that had me stop and think.  He was reading an article from the National Enquirer (you know the big gossip rag here in the US) which had some article on the front page about Patrick Swayze and his fight with cancer.  Basically the headline under the picture of Patrick said something like, “The End”. The broadcaster continued to comment about how sad it was that the Enquirer would do such a piece and use a headline that is so blatantly depressing and in overly […]

History AGAIN!

It might not be America but it’s just as significant.  I honestly hadn’t heard anything until I was just browsing around the net and saw the article on Wikipedia.  Iceland, of all places, elected the first openly gay head of state, Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir.  Ok, so Iceland isn’t a huge super power or the next great vacation destination, nor do they command heads to turn but they are a country and one who is apparently ahead of the curve. There’s a lot going on over in Iceland, admittedly I haven’t paid much attention to their plights with all the […]

Seattle Traffic

I’m growing so tired of the traffic in Seattle.  That’s a lot coming from the person who loves to drive especially in rush-hour traffic.  The problem that I have, which was very evident today, is that when there is an accident or some significant event that blocks major routes through the city … NOTHING … is done to help direct traffic.  For instance – today there was a terrible three car head on accident that took out all the lanes on a major thorough-fare right at 5 pm.  This radiated out to effect a huge area of the city and […]

$819 Billion Economic Stimulus Package

This is proof that we … you, me and everyone else in America … are asleep at the wheel: “No House Republican voted for the stimulus package, yet 244 Democrats did.” The odds that 177 people of approximately 435 would each vote identically are astronomical UNLESS all of these people are “members” of a specific group where as this would not be so uncommon. Come on everyone. I know we each have different believes, feelings and thoughts but doesn’t this remind you of something? It does me, can anyone say “High School?” This is nothing but kids playing in a […]
