After the Groundhog Day Blizzard, I dug out and headed to an undisclosed location. The trip was family related and had nothing to do with the blizzard. I decided to try some fun on FB by going celebrity. I updated my FB status with:
currently at an undisclosed location
CNN has not called yet.
While I was on this trip, Mrs. 4444 rewarded me with her FF award - Favorite Fragmenter.
Thanks so very much.
I watched Watson play Jeopardy and was very pleased when I knew one answer they didn’t. I knew that Slovenia is the only former Yugoslav republic in the European Union. No one got the right answer. I had visited Slovenia in 2004 so that helped.
Does this mean I’m smarter than a four-year-long IBM project?
(Honestly when was the last time you watched Jeopardy? This computer challenge was my only reason)
Recent bit of conversation with my wife:
“Your mom (me - chuckling between words) called me and asked why I didn't have more pictures on facebook. I was thinking WHAT (maybe I said WTF) - she does even touch a computer but now she's asking me about facebook.”
That’s what a new great-grand-son will do to people.
Our nation's Borders - big trouble - chapter 11. Oh wait, don't we want closed Borders?
One morning during my stay at my daughter’s place, I heard my granddaughter call out from her crib. I heard the noise but not the actually words. I poked my head in the room. I know she saw me.
As I walked across the room to the crib, I almost collapsed in laughter. She got real still and had started pretend snoring with her eyes shut tight except to peek out every so often. The pretend snoring sounded so fake.
I learned that she didn’t want me to take her out of the crib. She want her dad to fetch her. I’m still laughing at her tricky scheme.
The CNBC channel loves to report on reports or surveys. I suspect some of these reports are just done for cable shows. Most seem pretty dumb.
They reported on a survey of the opinions of men versus women regarding the current economy. One of the results showed 51% of men answered not much had changed. Mark Haines laughed and said, "ask any question and 51% of men would say not much had changed." I guess you could repaint a room and 51% of men would not notice unless they had to do the painting.
Do you think he’s right?
Who wants to be a millionaire? I really got into that show years ago. I stumbled onto a funny short film clip that’s related to it. Check it out on my video clip blog - Another Circus.
