Electric Mower

Electric Mower Date: 2005-05-04 (transfered from old blog) Today I traded in my old gas lawnmower, which came with the house, for an electric one from Home Depot. Well, not an exact exchange, but for a $100 rebate. I’ve cut the front lawn with it so far and it seems to do the job well. […]

Saint Ralph

Saint Ralph Date: 2005-04-28 (transfered from old blog) Michelle and I went to see a movie this evening called “Saint Ralph“. The main kid star, Adam Butcher, and the director of the movie were both there in the theater giving a little talk at the beginning and taking questions at the end. Adam goes to […]

Cybersquatting For The Pope

Cybersquatting Date: 2005-04-20 (transfered from old blog) Some clever fellow who followed the prophecies of St. Malachy registered the domain benedictxvi.com before the new pope was elected and is now getting tons of hits to his website (and probably making a nice profit with google ads). I went to check out if any variations on […]

Spring Come Back!

Spring Come Back! Date: 2005-04-03 (transfered from old blog) I woke up this morning to a rude surprise from mother nature outside my front window. After having nice +17C weather last week, it was shocking to see how much snow had accumulated from a late winter storm. I had heard the weather report saying it […]

Man With The Ridiculous Hat

Man With The Ridiculous Hat Date: 2005-04-02 (transfered from old blog) Pope John Paul II passed on today at the age of 84. I guess we’re one step closer the “last pope”. Of course, I don’t believe in Catholic prophecies and anything that might come true can be attributed to the self-fulfilling prophecy effect. Regardless, […]

Fried Onions Are Yummy

Fried Onions Date: 2005-04-01 (transfered from old blog) I went to eat at a place in Waterloo today called “Chill and Grill”. Had their regular-sized “Big Juicy” burger and onion rings. Now, the burger was average or above-average, but the best thing was the fried onions! I love fried onions! Not enough fast food places […]
