It's Snowing...On My Blog!

Wow! We just got three inches of snow at our house.  I like snow, but Shoveling is not my favorite.  I found a sweet solution, I put snow on my blog!  Yippee,  no more shoveling!  Just kidding, shoveling isn't that bad...

Cool optical illusion

This is a sweet illusion I found. 
Stare at the picture of the tiger and then wait for the image to change.  You should then see a photo of a tiger in full color (even though you are actually looking at a black and white pictures of a tiger!). 


video

Wow, that is CRAZY!
If it didn't work, make sure you are starring at the dot in the middle.
I will probably have more optical illusions to come.

The Limo Adventure


Just a couple weeks ago I got to go on a limousine. because my sister won a drawing at the public library. We had a great time! Here are some pictures of the adventure.
My sister could pick five friends that could come with her on the limo.
So she picked her two best friends, my best friend, me, and my brother.
the inside of the limo.

After a good fifty minuets in the limo, we arrived at Chiles.
I had the bacon big mouth burger. That was good!

Then we went to Dairy Queen and got some delicious ice cream.

The new iPod Nano



You might have heard of the new iPod nano release.  If you haven't, they have some pretty cool things.  They have twice the gigabytage.  It used to be that the standard version had 4 GB, but now it has 8 GB.  The interface is basically the same, except for this new feature called "Genius". What Genius does is you find a song you like then you press the Genius button and it finds songs in your ipod that sound like that song.  Its pretty cool.  The new nanos are offered in 9 glossy cool colors!  Here's the ad for the new "nano chromatic".

Funny Sunday


Here is a joke that I thought was funny.

Billy Graham and the Chauffuer

Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement. 
When his plane
  arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home in 
Montreat.

  As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the 
driver.

  "You know" he said, "I am 87 years old and I have never driven a 
limousine. Would
  you mind if I drove it for a while?"

  The driver said, "No problem. Have at it."
  "Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway.

  A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first 
speed trap.
  The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.

  The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and got out of his 
patrol car to
  begin the procedure.
  The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass 
was rolled down
  he was surprised to see who was driving.

  He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his 
supervisor.
  He told the supervisor, "I know we are supposed to enforce the law but 
I also know
  that important people are sometimes given certain courtesies.
  I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very 
important person."

  "The supervisor asked, "Is it the governor?"

  The young trooper said, "No, he's more important than that."

  The supervisor said, "Oh, so it's the president."

  The young trooper said, "Not, he's even more important than that."

  The supervisor finally asked, "Well then, who is it?"

  The young trooper said, "I think it's Jesus because he's got Billy 
Graham
  for a chauffeur !!!!!

Lots of Scraping


A pipe broke in our basement, and flooded the bathroom.
It damaged the floor, so we had rip up the floor.


The floor wasn't dry yet, so when we ripped up the floor the b
ottom half of the floor didn't come up, so I had to scrape it up, that was frustrating.


About one year ago we got a new vanity for this bathroom.  Since we just had a flood in it, we thought that this would be a good time to install the new vanity.  So we ripped out the old vanity, brought it outside, and smashed it with a sledgehammer!
  That was fun.

My sister read seven thousand pages in one month!
And she won the drawing!
Tomorrow is the big day.

I Enjoy Computers..



...But not all computers, just the one that works the best. In that case I only like Macintosh, so this week I am going to show you one of the best made computers on the planet,that is what I think.
What is it? It is  

Apples iMac.

Maybe it isn't the best computer for memory, but, it is amazing as it looks! 
Also it rounds the most stable operating system
(Mac OS X  Leopard)
About this Mac.

Here is the best picture to describe my point.

Funny Sunday

Here are two funny jokes that I found the website.
  
"The Anderson family just moved into their new home when a neighbor asked 5-year-old Tommy Anderson how he liked it.


“It’s great,” Tommy said. “I have my very own room and my brother Alex has his own room, and Jamie has her own room too! But poor mom, she is still with dad…”



One more joke...


"When do you stop at GREEN and go at RED?


When you're eating a watermelon!

  

Hope you have a great week.

            I have been on vacation lately.  First, I went up to Minnesota to see my grandparents for a week; that was so much fun! My favorite thing that I did was go tubing on Lake Miltona with my best friend.


              Then we came home for one day and the next morning we left agin to go see my other grandparents in Michigan for a week.  On the way up, we stopped in Wisconsin to drop off my best friend at his house.  

 After awhile we arrived in Michigan and had lots fun I really enjoyed using my grandpas BB gun.

            Sadly, we are home now.   But as they say;  "There Is No Place Like Home".

Funny Sunday

I got some really funny computer jokes today, here they are...

"There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.


When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"


He now writes error messages for Microsoft Corporation."



"I had been doing Tech Support for Hewlett-Packard's DeskJet division for about a month when I had a customer call with a problem I just couldn't solve. She could not print yellow. All the other colors would print fine, which truly baffled me because the only true colors are cyan, magenta, and yellow.


For instance, green is a combination of cyan and yellow, but green printed fine. Every color of the rainbow printed fine except for yellow. I had the customer change ink cartridges. I had the customer delete and reinstall the drivers. Nothing worked. I asked my coworkers for help; they offered no new ideas. 


After over two hours of troubleshooting, I was about to tell the customer to send the printer in to us for repair when she asked quietly, "Should I try printing on a piece of white paper instead of this yellow paper?"


Ha Ha! this next one is my favorite one.


"A pilot, Michael Jordon, Bill Gates, the Pope, and a pizza delivery man were all in a plane together traveling through stormy conditions.


Suddenly, the pilot ran back to the passengers and announced that lightning had hit the plane, and they were going to crash in a matter of minutes. "There are only enough parachutes for four of the five of us," he announced. "Since I'm the pilot, I get one!" After saying this, the pilot grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane.


"I'm the world's greatest athlete," proclaimed Michael Jordon. "This world needs great athletes, so I must live." Michael Jordon then grabbed a parachute and leaped out of the plane.


"I'm the smartest man in the world," bragged Bill Gates. "The world needs smart men, so I must also live!" Bill Gates grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane.


At this point, the Pope began to speak to the Pizza delivery boy. "I have lived a long life compared to you, and you may take the last parachute. I will go down with the plane."


"You don't have to do that, replied the pizza delivery guy. Bill Gates just jumped out with my backpack!"

Trip Out East Part 4 (Philadelphia Fun)



We just drove into Philadelphia, and we had to find a place to eat. So we stopped at Pat's.
I had never a Pat's Cheese Steak, it surprisingly delicious! It was also cool because Geno's Cheese Steak its competitor was right across the street from it.  And also, at the very spot of the restaurant, the movie "Rocky", was shot in 1976.  And we were right there!
Tight parking.
After a very delicious lunch, we wanted to go sightseeing.

But finding a parking place in Philadelphia was not as easy to find.

After much looking we finally found a suitable parking place but it had a time limit sign and we had to park behind the sign in our fifteen passenger van. Which as you now that would make it a vary vary tight fit! And it was not cheap!

But even with all that trouble I still had so much fun.


Trip Out East Part 3 (Philadelphia Fun)

Today on Phily fun I will show you the trip on the way to Philadelphia.
First we had a nice eight and a half hour-tip to Ohio.  We stopped there for the night, and then had another eight and a half hour trip to Philadelphia.  Coming up, tight parking.

Funny Sunday

Today is Funny Sunday so I thought that... oh, it's joke time. 

"Did you know deer nuggets are cheaper than chicken nuggets?

Chicken nuggets are $1.49, but deer nuggets are under a BUCK..."

OK.. that was a good one!
 "A ducks walks into a bar and asks, "Got any grapes?" 

The bartender, confused, tells the ducks that no, his bar doesn't serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves. 

The next day, the duck returns and says, "Got any grapes?" 

Again, the bartender tells him that, “no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes.” The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves. 

The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: ''Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes and if you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your little duck beak to the bar!'' 

The duck is silent for a moment, and then asks, ''Got any nails?'' 

Confused, the bartender says “no”!

''Good!'' says the duck. ''Got any grapes?”

Ha ha ha! OK were done tell next funny sunday.

Trip out East! part 2

 Today I would  like to talk  the Vietnam Memorial.
History about the Vietnam war;
The Vietnam War was the longest war in which the United States took part. The war began in 1957 and ended in 1975. At that time, Vietnam was separated into Communist-ruled North Vietnam and noncommunist South Vietnam. North Vietnam wanted to end U.S. support
 of South Vietnam and to unite the north and south into a single nation. The United States and the South Vietnamese army tried to stop them.

Quote-

"Walking down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial you can see people moving to your right; groups drifting in and out of sight among the trees. As you approach, your eyesight is suddenly jarred by the black granite wall - ripping its way along the hillside and staggering upon first seeing it"-unknown.

I think if there was one sentience That described the Vietnam Memorial best it would be...

...a wall of memory.
