Not a condiment

Sketchup is not a condiment. It is a cool little tool from a company google purchased. It's free. And what it does is let you easily draw 3D objects. Check it out.

Easter Egg

Do you know what an Easter Egg is? No, not the kind that come from bunnies. I mean those hidden artifacts in software, movies, etc. Well, here's one in a movie trailer. Check it out.


When it gets to the screaming monkey part, pause the video then use your back arrow to move back frame by frame and find it.

What did you do this weekend?

Here's what I did. A fast internet connection is recommended. I've put it on so you should be able to view it on Mac or Windows.

Tannerite and the death of a stump

In case you're wondering what Tannerite is you can find some info at

And just so you know we're not the crazy ones, here's this video by some people I don't know but are acquainted with tannerite as well. Somewhere, a child weeps.

Getting rid of personal responsibility at an early age.

Personal responsibility must be done away with as early as possible. Wouldn't you agree?

In case you can't read it...the shirts say "it's my brother's fault."

Be vewee vewee qwiet

Today we kept telling our kids to go play outside. The weather was very nice and they hadn't been outdoors for a few days. They went outside for a few minutes then decided it was boring and came back inside. In trying to get them to go back outside I started suggesting things they could do so it wouldn't be so boring out in the wilderness that is our backyard. Nothing interested them until I suggested they build a rabbit trap.

After carefully designing a trap using purple marker and scraping together some building materials, the kids produced the following wabbit trap:
The trap consists of a White Cloud Value Pack diaper box filled with baby carrots. From the trap's designer himself: "The ribbons are so the rabbits can make it tip over on them. The line of carrots outside the box are so the rabbits can follow them and find the string and make it tip over. After they eat all the carrots the rabbit will get fat enough that he won't be able to escape the box. And that's it." Well, there you have it folks, a homemade wabbit trap.

Below you'll see how well this went. You can click on the pictures to see a larger image.

First, the trap was set.

With the trap set, it was time to hide...

And wait for the wabbit to fall in the trap. Maybe our unwanted guest will take the rabbits out first. Only time, and carrots, will tell.

Unwanted Guest

We have an unwanted guest. No, it's not a relative. We struggle to get those to come be guests. :) We're out of everyone's way here in the middle of nowhere USA.

Our unwanted guest is of the canine type. Check it out. I took these pictures this morning in our back yard. My camera's zoom leaves something to be desired but I think you'll be able to spot the guest. And yes, it can jump the fence.
