These are the comments that I just left over at WPN Videos : You should check it out. Quite interesting and bravo for the dean of the school

I just got my very first Twitter account this week and there is no way I will ever be getting a FaceBook account. Getting an account there just sounds way to scary. I am 46 and build websites and I actually download my email and not look at them though a browser. By most eKids I am sure they would view me as a dino as far as the net goes, even though I have been involved with it in some way since 1996 and even before that I ran a BBS, which most of the eKids would not even know what was. Ahh the days of 48 baud and the sound that the modem made and the glee of watching a 50k image show up on your screen literally pixel by pixel to see what it was.

Basic energy needs, and a great recipe!

It’s time to look beyond the soda pop factor and look for new ways to avoid the altered corn sugars, and all you need is some time, some basic ingredients, and if you can spring for a bread machine, it is a definite plus.
Today you all in for a treat, because I am giving you a simple Italian bread recipe that has become the staple bread in my household. We have not bought any commercial breads, with the exception of Arnold’s Whole Wheat (labeled No High Fructose Corn Syrup) since it was discovered.

Italian Bread

1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cups bread flour
2 tsp sugar or 3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp bread yeast

Lawsuits Gone Crazy

What is it now days with all the lawsuits? Is it the only way that anyone makes money these days? I know that lawsuits are a necessary evil, but come on. I just got a blind spam mailing asking me to join in a egg lawsuit and I am not anywhere where those tainted eggs even shown up! I know lawyers have to make money but get real guys, it is not by sending out SPAM!!!!

People that do all the unsolicited spam emails need to get a clue. We don’t want that BS in our in boxes. Some of us ACTUALLY download our mail and don’t just read them online with a browser. Its just not easy to manage email like that no matter how good they make the browser. This is especially true for people with slow connects.

So all you ambulance chasing dirt bags of lawyers, keep your filthy spam out of my mail box and maybe I wont have to find a better lawyer to keep you out of it.

Review: Fruits Basket

Fruits BasketEveryone loves a good story, one that will keep you interested and wanting more and more as you go along. Fruits Basket or Furutsu Basuketto or just Furuba in Japan is such a story. The life stories taught in this show are amazing as well as what is in the manga. Even though the animated series didn’t cover the entire manga it still ends well and really does make you feel all warm inside when the last episode ends. Almost all of the episodes do stand on their own so watching them out of order is not going to get someone too confused but you really do want to watch them from the very beginning. Once you do watch them then get a hold of the manga so you can see how the whole story ends.

Stupid Politics

I really don’t get it. I really don’t. The United States is supposed to be about the people and for the people but instead lately it is all about corporate greed and how much a politician can make and how much they can control the lives of people. That is just down right wrong and I wish I had the money to be able to get in the arena with them and try and make some difference. The problem is that if a person is flush with money they really don’t see and sometimes don’t even care about what is happening around them. The only way I see things really changing is if the entire house and senate were emptied and then everyone wanting to run was forced to use public funds and not one cent of anything donated directly to the person running or the party that they belong to. The playing field needs leveled again if this country is going to get straightened out.
