The Election is over. On to something more interesting.

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I am not sure what it is but this election cycle has been more painful then most.  Perhaps it is the fact that you can’t even play a video game without seeing campaign ads.  Or maybe it is the fact that the recorded voice ads are so prevalent that I have chosen not to answer my phone may evenings in the last 2 weeks.

While trying to find news not related to politics today (anything!) I cam across this really cool story about a Salmon carcass found in California.  The Salmon was 85 pounds and 4 feet long.  Not to mention it is just really, really cool looking.  Regardless of the politics, regardless of the winners and losers and regardless of my 401K balance there are still very cool things out there to think about and see if we take a step back (or forward).

Nature can be amazing and brutal!

Just a quick note.  I had to post this incredible photo.  Take a look at the linked photo.  A 12 foot python swallowed a 6 foot alligator.  The alligator apparently scratched the belly of the python from the inside rupturing its stomach.  What a trip!

Tension

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

I never intended to post personal things on this blog.  Rather I intended to comment on those news stories or events that interested me and that I felt I wanted to share my perspective on.  Well I guess that changes here.  I am really stressed and full of tension lately.  Between changes moving back home, job changes, home upkeep, kid stresses, medical issues (family) and a host of un-named issues I feel like bursting.

I saw this yesterday and think it might be a perfect stress reliever.

Tension Toy, Pop, Pop, Pop!

What relieves stress more then popping packing bubbles?  This digital replacement sounds like a blast.  Leave it to our good friends in Japan to come up with something like this.  I may consider getting one of these.  I can’t see that they are imported in the USA yet but Ebay has them online available.  They are a bit pricey on Ebay though.

Either way a fascinating stress reliever/toy.
