Real Life FarmVille Video

This video shows some FarmVille action in real life and is the result of someone that had way too much time on their hands.

I was watching the weather news on MSNBC, trying hard to control the laughter. One of their reporters was out with a ruler measuring the one inch that it had snowed since he'd started standing around reporting on what looked to me to be a very minor storm. I know that DC area doesn't get much snow, and that they don't have a lot of snow removal equipment to deal with it effectively. But still, I couln't help but notice they're from the network sometimes prides itself on belitting Sarah Palin. Having lived a town or two up the highway from Palin in the backwoods of Alaska for about a quarter of my life, I'd have to assume Palin is one of the old-timey Alaskans that doesn't need a ruler to estimate an inch of snow.

More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

I saw this book by Guy Fieri on The Price is Right yesterday on the Food Lover's Showcase. They gave a copy to all the members of the audience.

Back when I lived in Alaska and they didn't have an Olive Garden in the state I'd stop in at that national chain while I was on vacation. But, other than that excpetion, almost every other dining choice I've made when I travel was to look for diners, drive-ins and dives. I like trying out restaurants with local charm and recipes I'm not likely to find at home.

I haven't bought this book yet, but I'm seriously thinking about it.

Blessed Pascha with Pysanky Eggs greeting card from

I was wandering about Twitter today and found a link to some lovely Orthodox and Pascha cards such as the greeting card below. Then, I also noticed a tweet at that mentioned Zazzle is one of the partners at Upromise where you can funnel a percentage of shopping dollars into a fund to pay for college. With Zazzle it is 8% that is donated. I do recall having heard about Upromise after I got out of school so I hadn't needed it at the time. But, now I have little nephews in the family. I'll be passing on the Site to their folks.
