Parking Lot Swimming Hole

OK, today, this late afternoon it rained like crazy.

It overwhelmed the drainage and this was the result.

Once the rain stopped, Jess decided to go wading in the newly found cement pond.

Ok, Joe wanted to point out to everyone that HERE you can find a guy that creates what one could arguably say is a work of art on dirty car rear windshields.

Despite his claim that he “does not have to much time on his hands” you can clearly see that he has talent, and a tendency for unlikely mediums. I suggest you check it out if for nothing more that to see how the artistic half lives that is assuming you are like me and have no artistic side.,

This Just In.

Bags of the future, may make you look stupid.

Thanks Engadget.

More Fun Flying Destinaitons

Ron and I flew with Amy and Barb over to Grand Rapids for breakfast Sunday and pick up a package we had there.

On the ramp were two f16’s but the real show … these clouds at 5,000 feet.

As if Apple did not have enough legal trouble…

It appears that after this previously unknown page from Da Vinci’s famous manuscript appeared, Apple was hit with papers from the estate of the same.

Da Vinci WAS a genius.

What The...

What is the blob of red in this sea of darkness you might ask?

That splash of color was the fire truck down the street from my house, the only thing lit up last night after a short but powerful wind/ rain/ lightning storm blew through causing spotty power outages.

Hopefully power is back on this afternoon, its supposed to be 86 today, and I don’t really feel like sitting in the heat all night. For another night that is.

At least here at work we have power.

One More Image From The Weekend

Here is one last image from the weekend.

I stopped by the hanger and the blimp was still out… looking all cool all lit up at night.

This Weekend.

Despite the fact I had to work Saturday (seriously, I would rather have my skin peeled off then work another Saturday) I had a good and productive weekend.

Sushi then a show, that was the plan.

After a great dinner, we went to a lackluster performance at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase by Jim McCue who Barb said seemed like did not want to even be on stage, later we ended up walking around the town and having a good time.

Our adventures led us to the The Arena and the Full Moon. Here is Barb at the full moon starting to feel the effects of the booze.

Suddenly we ran across this sign attached to a street light. OK here is the deal. I am so glad you have these fancy new progressive LED lights Ann Arbor, but I just have to say this: why are you asking the public for there opinion. I get the whole tree hugging thing you have going, but this it the same city I just spent the night walking through and I just have to tell you, the thoughts of the people in the drum circle and the guy on the bike that looked like he was on crack and was for certain wearing a bra…no, no these people you do no want an opinion from.

You have a job, pick street lights. Do your job, move on. This does not require a grass roots survey, no pole, no town meeting… its just f’n street lights … see that was not so difficult now was it.

Check Out This Weird Bug

Check out this weird looking bug I found when I ran Tanner near the airport.

I have no idea what it was but it was cool.

The Blimp Is Back

You might be a redneck when you are only in town when the blimp is.

Must be a race at M.I.S. this weekend.

Why China Rules the World- Secretly

Et Tu, mountain dew... I am so disappointed.

I know I am not the only one that noticed this, but the upside down mountain dew can bears a striking resemblance to the former communist leaders name.

Hasselhoff - Large and In Charge

Like so many other things oversees, David Hasselhoff is inexplicably huge. Like the French and Jerry Lewis, so many Europeans love this guy for reasons we may never understand. I guess he makes big bucks over there doing everything from music to commercials.

Please do yourself a favor and click on the Picture so see the world famous “Jump in my car." video. Once again David and his car Kit are reunited in what I can only describe as video perfection. (Kit with a steering wheel on the right side no less)

Please hang on to the end and watch what happens.

Horray Hasselhoff!

Northern Michigan Rules

Friday Barb and I flew Carrie up to meet Rod at their cabin in Lewiston MI. We left at 5:45 pm Friday. Total Time I flight 1 hr 30 min almost exactly. I was a great flight, and when we landed we were treated by seeing these elk outside the airport fence.

What you cant tell is each one of these were about the size of a compact car.

Northern Michigan rules.

We spent the night, Rod and I went fishing in the morning, went out to a great breakfast and flew back by 2:00 Saturday.

Thank you Carrie and Rod.

Cool Gear- Skins. The Condom For Your Cell

Here is a new product, Skins, you can see it HERE that promises to keep Your mobile totally waterproof.

When I say it’s a Condom for your phone I mean it’s a condom. The product demo page shows how you roll it up just like you would roll one down your willy. I just know that some stupid kid is going to use one of these in a pinch when the moment is right but the protection is nowhere to be found.

In truth this thing creeps me out and I am not sure I would ever use one, but you have to love their advertising campaign.

Wouldn’t the spermicide mess up the phone--- ick.

Kenneth Lay

Today Kenneth Lay from Enron fame died from an apparent heart attack. He was 64.

Apparently he once again cashed out early as he had been convicted of a laundry list of financial crimes (both corporate AND personal) and Lay was scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 23 according to the associated press. He was looking at a lengthy stay in a correctional facility/ country club of the courts choosing.

Lay is survived by his wife, five children and stepchildren and 12 grandchildren. He is also survived by thousands of people whose life was ill affected by the apparent/abhorrent corporate greed of him and his associates. Some of whom lost their life savings in the after math of Enron’s Death Spiral.

Since Mr. Lay maintained his innocence till the end, in guess now a higher power will decide if he truly was innocent or guilty. Good luck with that Kenny boy.
