Too Cold For You?

UPDATE: We had a tornado blow through the New Orleans area last night that did a lot of damage but I'm fine, it didn't hit us directly. It passed about 5 miles away, the sound of the winds woke me up about 3am, very spooky! We now return you to the regularly scheduled post...

I've noticed a lot of people complaining about the deep freeze going on around most of the country, but not here! It has been so warm here lately that more often than not I'm running the A/C just to stay cool. Being that It's January and February, that sucks! Big ones! I hope that doesn't mean we're going to have a hotter than usual spring and summer ahead. I would rather be cool than hot, given the choice.

The old microwave oven, not really that old, unless you consider 5 yrs as "old" took a dump last week and refused to work. It was a pretty nice model, but it got replaced with a new one that had a burning problem, and I don't mean the food. It smelled like the innards were smoldering, like an electrical fire was going to break out at any minute. I'm not going to mention the brand name (Panasonic) but after a few days, it went back to the store for a different brand after it was realized that the acrid burning smell was getting worse. I hate having to stand by with a fire extinguisher when ever I nuke something, don't you?

The new one features some cool whiz-bang controls and does a great job, you can start this stainless-steel clad beauty up with one button push, as opposed to two on the old one. Yeah, I can just imagine the lectures... "When I was a kid, we used to have to push TWO buttons on our microwaves to heat things up. You kids today only have to push ONE. You don't know what hard work is!!"

I had a pretty nice, older Kenwood home stereo system for sale in the local paper last week. It was a receiver, 5 disc CD player and a double cassette recorder, yeah that's how old it was, freakin' cassettes. But it had remote control and it was all in awesome condition, and looked beautiful, sold the whole lot for $70. I was shocked when I learned that the girl that bought it didn't give a rats ass whether it worked or not. Just so long as it had a handsome face. It was going to become part of a movie set and wasn't even going to be plugged in. Yeah, maybe my old stereo system is gonna be famous! Maybe win an Oscar for best movie prop or sumshit, who knows? At least it can't give a long winded speech... I'll keep you guys posted...




This is one of the funniest things I've seen lately, a carbon-monoxide detector with a snooze button...



Like the new template? It's one of my creations called "Harley Grafitti" and it's a free download over at my "Free Blogger Skins" web site, yeah I give this shite away. The site has become pretty popular, get's thousands of hits daily which is pretty cool. I just thought it would be different to use one of my own freebies. LOL

The Scientific Blogging community web site is doing pretty good. It's still in beta phase but it already has some world class, famous scientific "egg head" types writing articles. Good stuff too, these guy are frikkin' schmart! I'm the official "design manager" and an admin over there. Yeah, I get to lord over a bunch of scientists. Hey! I don't like that article... "delete" LOL No, not really. I did the entire site design and layout. Cool huh? Got a hankering for some killer science, articles about global warming? Get over there and "bone" up. You can also create a personal account and get your own free science blog on the site as a columnist. How cool is that? The articles must be about science, although there is a "humor" category under "Culture".

Hope you guys are havin' a butt-kickin' weekend! =) Stay warm, or cool, or whatever...
