Now, almost 60 years later, the Redskins are enmeshed in a debate about whether their name is a racist epithet and should be changed. Advocates for keeping the name reference its origins: In 1937, owner George Preston Marshall changed the team name from the Braves to the Redskins. Marshall said the change was in honor of the head coach at the time, William Henry Dietz, who claimed to be part Sioux (although that claim is suspect). Critics including Henry say its origins are irrelevant and that the name is racist and demeaning. “I’d love to see a boycott of all things Redskins,” he said. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet

"All my black friends have a bunch of white friends. And all my white friends have one black friend." That's the memorable punchline of a Chris Rock bit from 2009 on interracial friendships. And according to some recent number-crunching by Robert Jones of the Public Religion Research Institute, there's a good deal of truth to that statement. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Bookmarklet
My Fitbit One is like an alley cat. One day I find it and know where it is. The next day it's gone. A week or two later it reappears again only go away a few days later.
Got a face-to-face interview tomorrow for the Security Admin job I phone interviewed for on Monday. This is completely out of left field. I totally thought I had bombed on that phone interview (see but I guess I made enough of an impression for them to give me a more in depth look.
I'm grateful for the second chance and fully intend to knock it out the box this time around. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

You've got this! - Jennifer Dittrich
My short term gig is going well. My supervisor really likes my work. She's already talking about trying to extend my contract for another week or two. If the sec admin position doesn't work out hopefully the temp gig can blossom into something more long term. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
:) Good luck! - SAM

Today is interview day. I've got a phone interview in an hour for a security admin job (crossing my fingers on that one) and a face to face for another job this afternoon. I also start a 3 week short term contract tomorrow. Things are looking up on the job front.
I talked to the recruiter about the sec admin job a few minutes ago. He said if the phone interview goes well I could be offered the position by the end of the day. That surprised me a bit. I figured I'd have to get past the phone interview to get to the face to face interview before any hiring decisions get made. Apparently this department is so busy the managers don't have time to spend in interviews. Gotta knock this out of the park. Trying not to get nervous. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Good luck! - Anika from Android
I feel like a juggler. Just got off the phone with the recruiter who got me the short term gig and the face to face interview this afternoon. He told the face to face folks I could start as soon as next week (which is technically true I guess short term gig be damned) if they like me and want to bring me on. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Problem is based on the job description this isn't something I really want. I'm way overqualified and don't feel like it would provide any sort of challenge professionally. I've already kind of crossed it off the list so to speak and am merely using this interview as practice since I'm rusty. But what if they like me? It's a full time direct hire gig with benefits. The sec admin job is a one year contract with "likely" extension possible. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Momma always says a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. Right now the only bird in my hand is the short term gig. Technically I could come out of this with neither of the long term jobs. Ugh I'm thinking too much and only making myself more nervous. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Good luck, DB! - vicster: full-bodied
So I don't whether to feel okay or worried. The phone interview ended abruptly. The manager I was speaking to said they were having an emergency and he would have to end the call. This was after putting me on hold twice. If he has time he would call me back later to continue our conversation. If not he would let my recruiting firm know if they would like to bring me on. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We had only been talking for a little over 10 minutes. My recruiter said not worry about it. This has happened before and that they're very busy there. That isn't very comforting. I have a bad feeling about my prospects for this job now. I guess we'll see. I really wanted this job. Don't know if it's going to happen now though. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Time to start getting ready for the 2nd interview. Game face back on. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Didn't know YouTube videos scrobbled to now. I was on a Key and Peele kick Friday night if you couldn't tell. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I guess you never know when the nap bus is going to stop by. Linky was at the end of the bed reaching for his favorite toy when it happened today.
*Note* I moved him to the middle of the bed as soon as we snapped a quick shot. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android

So cute! - Tamara J. B.

Kesha entered Lincoln in a summer vacation photo contest. We need to get his view count up so please click on the link and take a peek.

He is SO CUUUUUTE! - vicster: full-bodied
This was his first time ever at the beach. He didn't know what to make of the sand at first. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
:) Our niece was the same.Then she decided she liked it and wheeeeeeeeeeee! - Pete : Team Marina
The first and probably last time he'll see the beach for a while. For the time being the ocean doesn't come up to Middle Tennessee. Give it a couple of hundred years. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Such a great photo. What I'm dying to know, though, is whether or not he's tough like Daddy. :P - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yeah. My brother-in-law took it. This was at Rehoboth beach in Delaware a couple of days before we moved. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
He's tougher, stronger and more stubborn that Daddy. That's saying something. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
What a cutie - Steve C Team Marina
Am I the only one having trouble with the FF bookmarlket in Chrome? Anybody have a fix or workaround?
Yeah, let me grab the link, just a sec. - Jennifer Dittrich
OK, here's one solution: (it looks a bit involved, but is actually pretty easy once you get into it.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks. I've got nothing but time at the moment. I'll give it a try. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Hmmm... so its working sort of but only for certain sites. Namely Friendfeed. Others still give me the blank box. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
This sucks. Still no luck. May have to switch to Firefox when I need to post something to here. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Yes please! I love Red Robin. Um.... Yes please. They need to make one with Isaac Hayes on it as well. That would be tight. Um.... Yes please. They need to make one with Isaac Hayes on it as well. That would be tight.

My Top 5 Artists (Week Ending 2014-7-13) -
This World Cup has rekindled my fire for the game. I've loved soccer since I was a little kid. That love has never gone away but my interest in actively following the game outside of the WC has waned. I haven't paid attention to MLS since the early 2000's. I'm ready to rectify that. Suggestions on what MLS team I should follow?
I'd always recommend the Sounders, but there are a lot of great teams out there. Portland and Seattle will be on ESPN2 tonight to whet your appetite :) - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
I'm moving to Nashville in a couple of weeks. I was disappointed to find out that there isn't a team there. I went to a couple of World Cup qualifiers there when I lived in Memphis. The turnout was great and so was the atmosphere. There's a grassroots movement to get a team there so maybe it will happen eventually. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I'm right there with you, DB. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
How did I know you would bring up the Sounders Jennifer? :-) - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I'm right there with you, DB. As for teams, I'd say the Timbers, but I'm *slightly* biased. :-) #SoccerCityUSA - vicster: full-bodied
Don't think I'm gonna be able to last for the game tonight. Very sleepy and I've still got to wash bottles. May record it and watch in the morning. No work until Wednesday! - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Like vicster, I gotta recommend the team I grew up with! If you want to follow guys from the national team, you can also check out Sporting KC, LA Galaxy, RSL, Houston and others. I hope they're able to revive the Nashville Metroes, especially with renewed interest after the cup. It looks like a lot more MLS teams are looking to partner with USL Pro teams, which I hope means even more stability for the other leagues :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Is it just me or does the trophy look bigger this year? #WC #GermanyWins
This also seems cruel. Making players who just ran a gazillion mile for 120 minutes climb halfway up the lower bowel to receive their medals and the trophy. What happened to setting up the stage on the field like they did on all previous World Cups I can remember? 3 or 4 steps and you're on the field. Sheesh.
That being said I'm sure their legs aren't tired anymore having just won the World Cup. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Messi be like you can keep this stupid Golden Ball. It means nothing to me.
He looks like he wants to throw it in the trash. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
WTH was that Messi?
Good question. - Jenny H. from Android
This seems cruel making Argentina stand around watching Germany celebrate. I'd be like give us our 2nd place medals in the locker room. We're out of here.
The machine wins. Props to Germany. Well deserved win. Feel bad for Messi. Gonna get roasted for this even though it's not his fault. #WC
5 minutes left. Time for some Messi magic. #GERvARG
