Ahhhh.... College Football.
I was home today waiting for the game and the jets set to fly over the game were flying a holding pattern over Saline maybe in honor of our new quarterback. On the radio I listened to them right up to inbound flight leg "Rock 1 flight of four reporting inbound. ". Of course it was cut off the tv boadcast to make room for commercials.
I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning, it smells like victory.

Big Brother is Watching You
Sent from my iPhone with imageMailer
It has come to my attention that a certain enterprise network has adjusted its security settings to that some of my images are blocked. Not for content but just by way of there location in picassa, cookies and other inter-web do-dadels that well quite frankly give me a headache.
So until I come up with a workaround *some* of you will have to log on from home to get the full effect.
As we approach the end of summer… and its coming fast… we see the kids are going back to school the days are getting shorter and there is a certain feeling in the air.
No, its not the smell of burning leaves (not yet anyway) its College Football. Living in the shadow of the BIG HOUSE means you can almost feel a palpable presence edging ever closer as game days arrive… first home game 11/30 just a little over a week away.
This year I have again passed on season tickets to pursue my more ala-cart style game strategy, picking up a select few games, and one road trip to visit my friends in
The Stadium has been going under a transformation of sorts, and is supposed to be ready but not complete for the first game. Only time will tell but it looks to me like they have a long way to go to be ready for kickoff.
Thanks to the UofM for these photos and these links.

Shop Update- Payoff
Sometimes it seems like a shop project takes forever. Sometimes they go quick. Usually it’s the former. As was the case of the tall dresser project. It really has been done for a short time now, but I took getting it into a room where it worked perfectly, that they payoff was really truly appreciated.
Much better than a piece we would have purchased for this space.

Speaking of Weather
A friend of mine in
“What kind of crap is that?” He asked.
“Apple Crap” I explained.
Its true, I can bring up a satellite image of your home, but I cant sent an MMS to save my life.
Click on the image to the (up and to the) left to read the comic and see what the world really is beginning to realize about Steve Jobs (and Apple).
