It’s Time For Some Campaigning

This is about as political this blog will get.



Do You Have A Secret?

I remember back when I was young.  In grade school.  I liked to read spy books.  Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, several others I can’t remember now.  I though it was cool they could send secret coded messages.  I remember me and my childhood chums making up secret codes and putting together a deciphering tool so we could send each other secret coded messages.

I wish we had personal computers back then. There is a great secret encoder website called Encoder where you can type in a message and lock it with a password. You can send the jumbled up message to a chum, give them the password and they can head over to Encoder to decipher it. My 8 year old daughter and her neighbor friend are all over Encoder.

So if you have a secret message to send, make sure to encode it using Encoder.

Are you getting excited for the newest Batman release? Me too! I was seriously hoping my Batcar would be ready in time but I may have to wait.

Affordable green housing??? Yeah, you read it right. Some ultra cool folks in the Philly area are in the process of building a leed certified (or certifiable) house for $100k. I hope we can emulate these folks and try it ourselves. It can be done and they are showing us the way.

And finally for those of you (like myself) who have been asleep the past 15 years, Czechoslovakia is no longer a country. HEAR THAT JOHN MCCAIN?? I’m just glad he brought this to my attention. I hope Steve Martin and Dan Ackroyd know this information.

You have Spoken, They Have Heard

After my call to arms in yesterday’s post regarding the feds moratorium on solar power, you have spoken and they have heard.  Today the BLM lifted the silly moratorium and fired the mail room clerk who concocted such a goofy idea.

Thank you all who immediately called your congress person.  You made a difference.  Don’t forget to vote for John McCain in November. I know with your help, we can all make a difference.

Is it just me or does a paragraph with solar and John McCain seem like an oxymoron?

My Vacation to Mars….

Has been canceled. According to the scientists who know, it rains there. Or rather, it drizzled there some time ago.

As some of you know, I officially hate politics and everything to do with them. I promise to make this brief but John McCain, who I would have voted for had I not given up politics, joined the eco friendly fray by PROMISING to write a check for $300 big ones for the first one “who can develop an automobile battery that far surpasses existing technology”. I personally am holding out for more before I commit.

Not to be outdone by a fellow Republican, Mr. “Contract with America” Newt Gingrich battles McCain by saving us all from high gas prices. If only he would throw in $300 big ones.

And finally, tonights excellent online free storage tip begins at Humyo. They are offering (free of charge) 30 big ones (GB) of online free storage space. Check it out [via Lifehacker]
