No More Shuttles :(


 Well, there will be no more Space Shuttles here in Florida. It makes me kinda sad, I have so many fond memories of watching launches, and both working and visiting the Space Center various times growing up. I do think its cool that the Shuttle has been able to fly over so many historic areas. I know that I am very fortunate to have seen every single launch, though many times I took it for granted but I bet there are a lot of people whose only experience seeing the Shuttle has been when it flew piggybacked over their city this last week. Here are some photos that were sent to me as the Shuttle flew away from Florida for the last time.

Today's My B-day!

I am 34 today which is sorta weird. I'm very much in my mid-thirties and that just sounds old. Not that it is old but just that I always thought of a 34 yr old as someone older, not me!

Here are some celebrities with whom I share a birthday:

Comedian Norm Crosby is 85--Never heard of him
Actor Tommy Lee Jones is 66--I met him when he was filming Space Cowboys here in FL
Movie director Oliver Stone is 66--I didn't realize he was 66!
Actor Danny Nucci is 44--Never heard of him
Rap DJ Kay Gee is 43--Never heard of him
Actor Josh Charles is 41--Never heard of him
Actor Tom Hardy is 35--Sorta heard about him
Pop-rock musician Zach Filkins (OneRepublic) is 34--I have no idea which one he is in the group but my daughter loves them
TV personality Heidi Montag is 26--I wish I didn't know who she was LOL

The Sims for iPad

I used to play The Sims on my computer probably a good 10 years ago and had some fun creating the people, buildings and seeing the relationships between the characters. Now, my daughter Julie, has been playing with the app on my new iPad and on her iTouch and it's so funny seeing all the screenshots she's saved that have popped up on my photo stream. Do your kids play any games you liked playing a long time ago? It sorta makes me happy to seeing her enjoy something I did. I haven't won her over on Oregon Trail yet but for now I'll settle for Sims!

Live Corgi Cam!

The Corgi breed of dog has always sorta creeped me out a bit but they've been popular online the last few days because of this live Corgi cam and because one of Queen Elizabeth's famous Corgi dogs died at the age of 13 over the weekend. I know its silly to be creeped out by a breed of dog but for some reason, I've always thought they were a bit weird. Its like the legs don't match up with their body so they always seem sorta off to me.

Check out these Corgi puppies, they'll have a live camera on them until September 14th when they go to their adoptive homes.

Oh Happy Day

I'm typing this on my new iPad and I am so happy to finally have one! What's even better is that with my Best Buy gift cards and a little bit of Hilton points I got this iPad for a grand total of $6.97 out of pocket. How freaking cool is that?

I started using Viggle earlier this year when the points and rewards were a little more generous (before they realized how much they were shelling out!) but it's still a good way to earn points for doing something as easy as watching tv. You need an iPhone to use it but it's super easy!



Julie has already had some fun with photo booth!
