Like a Ferrari that got porked by a luck dragon.
So my computer died a few weeks back still waiting for new MacBook Pro's to become old MAcBook Pro's to buy a replacement. Without all the info on there I don't have my saved baby tips and tricks. Anyone got links to the ways to track baby growth in pictures over time? Just post some links here of cute ideas that would be welcome.
I don't have google search time. - Steve C
Etsy has lots of cute growth blocks, felt numbers, stickers, etc.. here's some of the blocks - Tamara J. B.
" Wind was blowing, time stood still Eagle flew out of the night He was something to observe Came in close, I heard a voice Standing stretching every nerve Had to listen had no choice I did not believe the information just had to trust imagination My heart going boom boom boom "Son," he said "Grab your things, I've come to take you home."

This cat and this lynx appear to be madly in love |
There was once a lynx that lived at the St. Petersburg Zoo, the oldest zoo in Russia. And there was a stray calico cat who came to visit her. Their friendship started in 2008, or at least that's when the zoo noticed that the two were hanging out. And this video was taken three months ago, which tells us that the friendship is still going strong. Now go hug someone you love and show them this video. You're welcome. - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Six Flags to close Colossus roller coaster in August - Los Angeles Times -
Six Flags to close Colossus roller coaster in August - Los Angeles Times
"When it opened in 1978, the Colossus roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia was the tallest and fastest in the world. Today, the wooden coaster that peaks at 125 feet and reaches speeds of 62 mph doesn't rank among the top 10 in either category. That may explain why Six Flags has decided to dismantle the coaster to make way for a new attraction. Colossus will carry its last riders on Aug. 16. Park officials declined to say what will fill the space." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
possibly a Batman/Looney Tunes crossover theme village with fudge concession stand. - Big Joe Silence
I hope it's another wooden coaster. I like the steel beasts as much as the next fiend but there's just something about a wooden coaster that's magical. Plus hate trees. - Akiva
I'm so bummed that I won't be able to ride it again before it closes. Boo. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ closed Rolling Thunder, their first wooden coaster (from 1979), last year. This is what is replacing it: - April Russo

Dear some assembly required glider. I have built cabinets and tables; ceilings and walls, roofs, decks, closets, bathrooms, hell even chairs with a lathe. But you win. I give up. After two hours I will just drink myself into a stupor and sit on the floor.

In related news to Hookuh post, I was elected by the family to be conservator of my parents healthcare and finances without knowing I was running. With 9 kids I liked my odds but the curse of being able to make decisions quickly and stick with them follows me everywhere.

The Shortlist for June 5 | Gallery | Wonderwall
"It turns out that being awesomely funny and talented is no shield from discrimination in Hollywood. In her new Redbook cover story, Melissa McCarthy opens up about why she's wanted to create a line of clothing for plus-sized women for so long. "Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no," she says the Emmy winner and three-time Oscar nominee. Eventually, Daniela Kurrle designed gowns for a number of McCarthy's award show appearances. But she remained frustrated. "I don't understand why if you're a certain size, designers think your taste level goes down and you have less money to spend," she says. "The quality and construction is often so bad. Finding a great T-shirt or a great cigarette pant in a good fabric is next to impossible. Plus-size clothes are often really cheap and either look young or incredibly old."" - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Scientists Spot Beautiful New Species in Southeast Asia - NBC -
"A dragon fish with intricate, mazelike markings on every scale, a frog with rough, chocolate-colored skin and a ginger plant are among more than two dozen flora and fauna species found in Myanmar since it emerged from a half-century of military rule and isolation. The World Wildlife Fund said Thursday that the discoveries by global scientists in the last two years highlight the need to invest in conservation as the biologically diverse nation of 60 million revs up its economic engines and opens up to foreign investment." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Pelican whose mutilation sparked outrage is released into the wild - Los Angeles Times
"The blue animal carrier door opened and Pink, the mutilated brown pelican whose pouch was slashed open, came dashing out, wings up and taking flight for the first time since beginning recovery from the brutal attack about six weeks ago. The small crowd who had come to witness Pink's release cheered and clapped as they watched the brown pelican fly to nearby rocks where other birds had gathered." "It took two surgeries and 600 stitches to repair the mutilated pouch beneath the long, light brown bill." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Sweet salute: Video captures airline gate agent singing national anthem to WWII vets - News - (video included) -
"There were 12 WWII veterans on this particular flight, which was headed to Paris, and at least one of them was en route to an event at Omaha Beach to recognize the 70th anniversary of D-Day. When it was announced over the PA system that he was a WWII veteran, he received a standing ovation from all the travelers."And the heartwarming spirit didn't end there. "The respect continued on the plane," Vermeulen said, when "everyone stopped to thank these men for (their) service." The pilot thanked the veterans by name, she said, and informed the cabin as the plane passed over Normandy. "One of the veterans also celebrated his 95th birthday on the plane and everyone sang to him before we deplaned," she said. The experience struck a personal note for Vermeulen, who has several veterans in her family, including her grandfather who served as a marine in WWII. - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Video doesn't show much but the gate agent singing has a wonderful voice. - Steve C

'It's not too late to change': Former bully, 7, now campaigns against bullying - Moms - -
"After the incident, Cameron had to write a letter to apologize to his classmate, while his mother expressed her regret to the boy’s parents. That family was touched and impressed by the apologies, they said. But Cameron felt he needed to do more, his mom recalled. “He came to me a couple of weeks later and he said, ‘I still feel really bad about what I did to him.’ He said, ‘How do I get that feeling to go away?’” Jessica Southard said. The solution? Starting an anti-bully club at school. “Since I was sad, I thought I could make it up to him and he could feel better and I could feel better, too,” Cameron said. When he launched the group this spring with the help of the boy he teased, 76 kids showed up on the first day, blowing past the school’s expectations. The principal says bullying is down in the school district thanks to what she calls positive peer pressure. “We are so proud of Cameron and the work he has done to correct a wrong,” said Callie Beitler. “When students talk to students, they’re at their level.”" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

"In the study, 30 people who drank little water each day--less than 1.2 liters--were asked to increase their water intake to more than 2.5 liters for three days. Not only were people getting their thirst quenched, but also participants reported feeling less fatigued, less confused, and more satisfied overall with their mood at the end of the study. Researchers also flipped the script and had 22 people who regularly drank lots of water decrease their consumption. The reverse happened: Lowering how much water they drank worsened participants' moods, leading to negative effects such as headaches, confusion, and fatigue, says study author Nathalie Pross, Ph.D." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Virginia 10-year-old sets malf-marathon record | FOX Sports on MSN -
"On May 25, Reinhardt set what is believed to be a world record for the fastest half-marathon by a 10-year-old when he clocked 1 hour, 35 minutes, 2 seconds during the Alexandria Running Festival half-marathon in Virginia. The performance was good enough for 55th place overall in a field of more than 900 finishers (the winning time was 1:13.28), and apparently wiped out the recent mark of 1:37:15 by Noah Bliss of Kenosha, Wis., which the Association of Road Racing Statisticians recognized last month as a world record. Dennis Harrison, 54, is a volunteer running coach in Falls Church, Va., so it's hardly surprising that his son has been interested in the sport since a young age." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl: Flight to freedom -
"It was late afternoon Saturday in Afghanistan, about 10:30 a.m. ET, when Bergdahl surrounded by 18 Taliban fighters was led to a meeting point. There, waiting, were U.S. commandos, according to the officials. In the air above, helicopter gunships circled. Slowly, Bergdahl walked toward the commandos. It is believed the soldier was searched by the commandos, who as a matter of protocol would check to make sure the Taliban had not strapped explosives on him. Within a matter of minutes, Bergdahl was aboard a helicopter bound for Bagram Air Base. On the helicopter, with the knowledge he was in the hands of Special Forces, Bergdahl broke down and cried. He was free." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
It finally happened. I dropped a 3/4 full gallon of paint and it exploded all over. On the plus side it was in the tool shed. On the downside I dropped a 3/4 full gallon of paint.

I'm not going to sugarcoat it people. We lost a good pair of shorts tonight. They will however forever live on in the painting and crawling under the house bin. - Steve C

Bet those tools in that shed will never rust again. - Stephan Planken
I am interested in knowing the color of this sacrificed paint. I imagine flat beige. - Janet
"On the plus side it was in the tool shed." Yes. Because it sucks when it happens on hardwood floors. - Anika
Janet - flat beige will never enter our house. We are color people. This happened to be the moulding trim paint so just white semi gloss - it goes with everything including now brooms, shovels, hand tampers and drip line irrigation. :) Yeah Anika that is why my situation wasn't so bad. - Steve C
I've done that. Once upon a time, I was standing at the top of a 30 ft ladder painting the eaves on an old 2 story victorian house. Bees started pouring out from behind one of the boards. After hitting the opening with a full brush of paint, I didn't care where the rest of the paint ended up. I may still hold a record for fastest dismount from a vertical ladder. - Greg GuitarBuster

"Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has signed a binding agreement to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion from the Sterling family trust, a source familiar with the situation told CNN on Thursday night.

I wonder if Ballmer is really hoping for a Lakers/TWC type of multibillion dollar deal. - Victor Ganata
Dang it. He just edged out my bid by almost 2 billion. - Marty
