Happy Holidays

Wednesday, December 23 2009 9 a.m.

This is a reminder for you and myself of how fortunate we all are to touch each other's lives. Our circumstances can be defined by fate, but who we are is defined but what we choose to do daily. As we make our impression on people we also leave indents on the clay that makes character. Be sure every interaction and mark we leave on that clay is purposely positive. Not every action will turn out positive, but if we aim for each mark in the clay to be positive, the end result will be wonderful.

Choose wisely and purposely even the little things we do daily. Especially those little things, because they add up to more. You might take a big road trip someplace, but it's those daily trips in your car that add up 10,000 miles per year. Why do one big caring thing once a year to help someone? Instead, keep an eye open as you walk through the daily motions of life to see how you can help.

I find that surrounding myself with positive, beautiful and caring people, landscape and art is the most important thing in my life. These are all things that can be acquired with little or no money. This is important, because since time is money, this gives me the most time to enjoy these things. I only hope that all my friends, family and everyone reading this blog can prioritize their life in a way that makes them happy.

It's within all of us to have a happy holiday and a spiritually prosperous new year.

fun, politics

How To Download Your Favorite Shows

Wednesday, November 12 2008 9 p.m.

I will show you how to download your favorite shows automatically and convert your PC into a DVR. You don't have to sit there and download it. Just leave your PC on and it will be ready for you within a few hours after the show is published. All you need is a fast internet connection and some software. You do NOT need a cable TV connection, antenna or any of that retro gear. It's nice to have a PC or laptop that you can connect to a TV but that is not required. If you hate your cable company this is a viable cable TV replacement. Of course you will need to be able to obtain a license to view many of these shows, but there are a few out there that are free. It's beyond the scope of this article to encourage you to break imaginary property (IP) laws.

HollywoodDraft.com Launched Today! Got Game?

The concept is simple, celebrity media meets fantasy sports. You pick a roster of celebrities that will be all over the blogs and magazines and you get points when they appear. Getting the cover of People magazine is like getting a touchdown in fantasy football. Your celebrity got arrested? You lose points.

For those of you that think I disappeared... This is what I've been working on the last few months. Check it out!

fantasy, fun

The above sample is looking east, north east out the window from downtown Minneapolis.

Someone recently sent me this link with example of rare cloud formations with small explanations of the atmospheric events required to create the clouds. The geek factor is in the explanation of course.
