Little did you know...

Zombies want their rights. I had no idea. None. I mean, they are the undead and walk around trying to eat brains right? But they also have their own website and appear to be a tad irritated...

Irresponsible Internet Fearmongers Exploit Gruesome Tragedy to Promote Anti-Zombiism

I followed them on twitter because we really should keep an eye on them... really...

Over in Saudi Arabia they have other spectral types on their mind

Saudi ghost-hunters raid "haunted" hospital

Not sure why ghosts would prompt people to wreak havoc on a place. Unless they start throwing stuff at you.

In the meantime, I think the state of Massachusetts should be on the lookout.

Northampton resident finds very unusual bird

It's just the beginning... I'm telling you.

Have a great evening... sleep well while you can.

You never know when a tip will come in handy

Kate has started a new blog

Housewife How To's

Check it out.  There might be something there you hadn't thought of... or you might be able to add a trick of your own that works. 

Me? I'm not very good at the housewife thing. Been practicing for years, still can't quite get the hang of it... so I'll be reading.

Better sailing pics than I will ever have

The Volvo Ocean Race - 50 Best

I am not sure how the photographer(s) got some of those in heavy seas.  Amazing.

From Party Crashers to House Hunters

The cows... they got it goin' on. Yes they do.

6 cows crash party in Boxford, MA

Awesome!

Not sure what these will be able to do

Hawaii lab turns laser-powered bubbles into microrobots

But it is kinda cool.

I saw this headline

Facebook launches iPhone camera app

and I had to wonder.... Why? Instagram is free, it's owned by facebook now and it does all of this already. So what's the point?

****
I guess Yahoo is still kicking

Amid Turmoil, Yahoo Jumps Into Browser Wars

I have to give them credit. They've had quite a bad turn businesswise, but it looks like they are still trying new things.

****

This one makes me laugh

Blog writer helps owners restore their midcentury homes

Not because she wants to restore homes to their original type style, but because I watch House Hunters.  Have you ever watched a young couple looking for a "midcentury" house?  The hilarity factor is enormous as they realize around mid-hunting that the bathrooms are tiny (by today's standards), the kitchens are mostly enclosed, and the closet space is almost non-existent.  If you want some really funny television, check out some of those shows.  Be sure to have plenty of popcorn on hand. 

****

That's it for now.

Catching up on stuff

Been busy doing stuff.  We just finished the Advanced Sailing class this last weekend so supposedly we are now able to sail J24 boats.  Ha.  We'll see.  It was fun but I continue to be a klutz whenever I get near boats.  Luckily the spectacular falls are not into the water, but the deck is a bit unforgiving.  The bruises will take a few weeks to heal.  Too bad no one on board was thinking about it - they could have had a youtube hit!

If you want to see the photos I've been posting, head over to my Posterous page.  I'm too lazy to post them here too. 

***

Today James Doohan's ashes (the ever beloved Scotty from Star Trek) blasted off into space via the SpaceX rocket.  It took a little time, but Scotty and the ashes of 300 other space loving people are now our shining star for a while.

Via twitter it seems the Vice President is ingratiating himself to Boston commuters.

Air Force 2 taking off from Manchester, NH soon, estimated time of arrival at Boston Logan is 5:30, just in time for rush hour.


So not only do we have rain today (all day) but every highway is in gridlock and according to @NEFirebuff

Pike westbound out of Boston? Inbound towards the city? Good luck. Ramps to + from are being shut down in preparation for the VP's visit


The only thing that astounds me is that I'm not trying to fly anywhere today.  Usually this kind of thing happens when I try to fly out of Logan. heh.

***

And last of all (because I have to go make dinner) are we really surprised about this?

Facebook Shares Continue to Slide

I'm still trying to figure out what they were thinking.  Everyone from Zuckerberg to NASDAQ to whoever else was pushing this.  Like the Emperor's New Clothes, there's no "there" there. 

***

Now off to cook pork products.  Because they are delicious.

Here's a few fun things to watch

If you haven't seen it

Europe History Time Lapse Map

It's very cool - even if the eyes have a hard time keeping up with the ever changing country boundaries.  (turn up the sound - the music is excellent)

***

Then we have

Breathtaking View of Earth

From a geo-stationary Russian satellite.  Very nice.

Just something to keep you busy until I get a chance to post again.
