CUIL - The new search engine that's suppose to give Google a run for their money.

Been playing with it for a few days and I do like the fact it does bring back some different things than Google.

Crime Spree

Paid today to have Dee's truck side window replaced. Someone smashed it in to take her purse with no money in it. Had to cancel a few cards, get a new licence and pay $200 for a new window.
Lesson learned.... Leave your vehicle unlocked with nothing in it. If they steal the car, your covered under your insurance. If they smash a window to get in, your insurance wont pay for that window.

The car next to her truck was broken into also. That woman had like her whole life in her purse and it was stolen as well, licence, half dozen credit cards, soc sec #, checks, cash etc.

Strumming Patterns

Just a little post today with a link to a website with strumming patterns for different songs and MP3's of those patterns to go along with them.

Joe Cocker

Just a few Videos you would not see on MTV nowadays.
Cry Me A River from the "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" album

The Letter from the same album and tour in 1970

Who knew, no news

It's been a slow summer so far.

Dee's vacation was a week of hanging around the house and going to the beach.
I did finally get the laminate wood floor installed in the back office. The office is slowly taking shape. Rebuilt the cheesy little transmission on the mower that seized up and spent a few days throwing up with a stomach bug (I Think). Since neither of the two women were sick at this time I have a hard time believing I food poisoned us all. (One can never tell though, I may have just contaminated something I ate?)

Needless to say though my sickness kept us from running our 5K on the 5Th. Dee is already looking ahead and is planning a run in Sept I believe. She is still running almost every day and even though she does not see it, she looks better and better every day.
