I want to be on a boat...

You will need to watch a 30 sec commercial but it is worth it I think, Maybe the impending recession will cause the crap these guys are making fun of to cease to exist.

24 hours and counting!

Tomorrow will mark my wife's birthday. 29 again. I will not say how many 29th birthdays she has had, but this is not the first!

The issue is a point of fun around our family but it is really a moot point as my wife like her mother and grandmother before her ages at 1/2 the rate of a normal person! Scientist should really research their gene pool!

So for all of you who know Chrissy, feb 4th is her special day and as a tribute to my history nerd wife here a list of other, far less significant events that happened on Her day!
