My new phone

I just ordered the Sony Ericsson T637 today with a new wireless family plan from AT&T Wirelss. :)

On Sunday we spent most of the day at my sister-in-law's house celebrating my nephew Zane's 2nd birthday. The majority of his presents were books, but he was pretty excited about that. Here Benjamin is reading one to Zane & Jared. Posted by Hello

I donated blood this morning. Of course the guy assumed I would want the pink bandage! You should donate blood, too. Find out more at (in the Puget Sound area). Posted by Hello

Theft of the Presidency

This is the dude who supposedly investigated and wrote about the bad shit that happened in Florida regarding the 2000 Presidential election - The Writings of Greg Palast.

We're getting ready to move offices again, and the hallways look like the corporate version of a cookie cutter village. Posted by Hello

Our wedding was on NPR!

Today KUOW's "The Conversation" was talking about "the perfect wedding". I sent in an email and they read it and asked for more info! So I emailed again and they read that, too. His description of our group photo is pretty funny. You can listen to it online - my parts are about 28.5 minutes in and again about 42.5 minutes in. :-)

Better Homes and Gardens has pre-done garden plans!

This site has WAY too many ads that are really annoying, but it looks like there is some really great information including various kinds of pre-designed garden plans.

Article: Bush's Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides

Mimi pointed me to this article on the web site Capitol Hill Blue: Bush's Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides.
It's really quite amazing with quotes like "In meetings with top aides and administration officials, the President goes from quoting the Bible in one breath to obscene tantrums against the media, Democrats and others that he classifies as 'enemies of the state'.”

New cell phone

I'm thinking of switching to AT&T Wireless and buying the Sony Ericsson T616. Now is your chance to talk me out of it. ;)

This is my mom's pug puppy, Carol. She is the cutest thing ever. She is very friendly so she wanted to meet the cows. But when the cow snorted Carol got a big surprise! Posted by Hello

First post

Hello, I am testing out this whole blogging thing. I am drawn in by the concept of photo blogging and the "Blog this!" feature on the Google toolbar. We'll see how it goes...
