Stick With It!

Many apologies for my tardiness in posting, so without any extraneous incantation, here are the cartoons that were in process for the missed "due" dates.










Hopefully these are on-par with the expectations.

SHOPPING!

Beth and I went to the "H-Mart" our local Asian marketplace. While there, we found many fantastic and mysterious things!


Apparently you can purchase children and family pictures here.
We tried to purchase a baby, but they just looked at us like we were crazy.




With around 80 different definitions for "pass"
"Pass-O-Guava" may have been a bad choice as a naming convention.



5 gallons? is that enough? Better buy 2.



I can't think of how many times I've been to the supermarket and
they've been out of fresh plastic leg.



Beth and I looked at this bag full of little "V" shaped things, we looked at each other,
and at the same time said "What is this stuff?"



Oh! it's SOY STUFF!
Apparently the label makers didn't know either.



Trust me, there's nothing better than some good squid crackers washed
down with an good tall glass of Pass-O-Guava.



And to wash the crackers down, there's nothing like a fistful of tiny dried fish.




And to wash the fish down, try some EYEBALLS!
Ok, they aren't actually eyeballs.. they are little snails.


Nothing says "good meal" to me like a good plucked duck head.



Nothing better than a good cow stomach to cure what ails you.

Thank you to all who voted. Now we all know that snow is actually not falling water.
It is a form of H2O, but it is not water. Water is the liquid state of H2O.
Amen.

Windows 7

WINDOWS 7


Well, it's officially here, and I personally know many people that are eager to get their hands on a copy. Personally, I'm not convinced. I mean, sure, throughout my use these last few months, the OS has been pretty solid, but my problem is that I don't see enough of a difference between it and Vista to make me want to run out and buy a copy.

Quite honestly, I think the new "features" should have been released as a service pack, but since Microsoft let Vista be shamed and slandered so heavily, they had to come out with a whole "new" operating system.

Ok, enough griping, I'll get on to what I like.
It has a slightly smaller footprint overall, and it seems a little more snappy. The speed increase is really felt in the low end laptops and netbooks. Vista was just too bulky for them, and finally people are realizing that XP is just really old. The GUI (graphical user interface) is pretty nice, and offers some cool eye candy, however, lacks usability.

User Account Control (UAC), has really been revamped, and is much less annoying than the version in Vista. Microsoft really should have thought this one through the first time, UAC on Vista was more annoying than popup adds on the internet.

The new themes are pretty cool.

Gadgets finally don't require the stupid "sidebar" to be running all the time, thus, the gadgets use much less system recourses.
Sleep and resume functions are a HUGE improvement over Vista. When I would put my computer to "sleep" when I had Vista installed, it would often (about 20% of the time) fail to wake up. When the computer did wake up, it usually took almost a full minute to be usable again. and sometimes, it would still fail to be fully functional, requiring a reboot. So far (about 60 sleep and resume cycles) Windows 7 has only failed to wake up about 3 times.

Jump lists are pretty useful, however, I still find myself using the "search" function more.

A few programs that I use often aren't operational on Win 7 (daemon tools, adobe illustrator has some issues, but so far I have been able to find workarounds)


Honestly, I would probably not pay full price for this thing. I don't find the new features worth the $70+ that it will cost to upgrade from Vista. I would suggest it for those that are finally realizing that XP is 8 years old.

Well, that's about all the ranting and raving I have for now.

A little perspective...


I was searching a while back for some info about the actual size of money, I wanted to know how many dollar bills would fit inside a semi truck, and I ran into an anti former president Bush website. It's called "Eighty seven billion" and it gives some perspective on how big the piles of money that our former president spent for different things...

The site talks about the different things that the government's money (our money) was spent on. Don't get me wrong here, I totally believe that there was quite a bit of waste, and I'm sure that there was plenty of indiscretion how the money was spent; however, I would like to compare that to the current spending plans of our new President.

Bush took us down the debt hole about 3000 billion.. (yeah, 3000 billion.. or 3 trillion dollars)
Yeah, it's not good, but compared to our new (relatively new anyway) president and his current plan, it's bean sprouts... or something comparatively small.


President Obama's projected plan is around 10000 billion dollars, yes that's right, for the next four years. 10 trillion dollars versus what Bush spent. While Bush spent a lot.. about 1.5 trillion per term I think it's a little less than President Obama...

Man, Bush was really plowing our country under.. that's really reckless spending!
[can you see the sarcasm?]

Perspective is a good thing to have, but only if you are able to ignore fact. Otherwise it's just plain scary.





315 billion doesn't look so big anymore, now does it? Perspective?
315 billion dollars is only 1/31th of the President's current prospective spending.
