How Cool Is the Library of Congress

Here is a picture of Ft. Mackinac, Mackinac Island MI. The first picture I took last year while on vacation with Barb. The second I found at the Library of Congress Archives, taken circa 1910. You can see the whole picture HERE.

Pretty cool, right.

The Zilwaukee Bridge

So I had to work Saturday, the weather in Michigan this weekend more than made up for that.

It seems I am just getting back to normal and after a quick check of the small plane on after work Saturday, with Tanner and I working the pattern, Sunday was the day for a small breakfast run. With Ron and Verna, up to Mio and the Paddle Inn for breakfast buffet was just what the doctor ordered.

Here you see The Zilwaukee Bridge near Saginaw, MI with a quick shot from my cell phone at about 4500 ft MSL or close to 3500 ft AGL.

Concept Cell Phone

Sometimes a design is so cool, that it does not have to really be practical. This concept design cell phone makes me excited to see what will be the future of cell phone form as technology pushes the envelope of function. That transparent touch screen is cool.

Designer: Michael Laut

Thanks to and for finding this one for me.

What Season Is It Anyway?

Yesterday, my neighbor mowed his lawn.

The same day, it snowed.

This has to be the first time these things happened in the same day. The only time I can remember that is.

Still Sick

In case you are wondering, I am still stick.

What was supposed to be a small passing thing has turned into a bigger deal. Hopefully it will clear up soon as I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Today I off for some more tests to see if the doctors can clear up that which ails me.

I did get out of Jury duty, we just postponed really. Honestly I would have rather been at the court than at the hospital.

PS. I am not contagious and this does not appear to be life threatening.

Typical Michigan

Today, April 11, 2007, I should be wearing shorts and enjoying the begining of spring. In stead we are looking at snow and cold temps.

Not Well

Not one to be sick, today I was truly not myself. I picked up some kind of stomach thing that crept up on me and took me out like cheap wrestling move. It has been stalking me for days and clothes-lined me late last night.

It took all I could do to write this quick quip.

Quality Time With Vista

Among my other chores this weekend I was asked to help my brother with a small project on his new vista laden computer. In spite of the cool 3d window scrollie thing I have to say it’s a pain in the ass. Nothing is where it’s supposed to be, many features are harder than they should be, it makes a guy want to think about a Mac. (shutter)

If only apple threw out a cool tablet, I might be there.

For now I will stick with my XP machine.

This cartoon from sums it up nicely.
