Riddle Room, part 2

Second try at the Riddle Room today. Sadly the Starship: Sabotage exploded and we died, but we were soo close to solving it (we only had one puzzle to solve and almost had it and some red buttons to hit).

Rocking the vote!

Minnesota Primary Day! I was voter #21.

Making history or herstory!

For the first time in over 200 years of American history a woman has been nominated by a major political party for president of the United States! Hillary Clinton gave a fantastic speech tonight (and quoted the musical Hamilton a few times! and mentioned how she believes in science and climate change!!!) and actually the […]

A great quote by Steve Jobs

“Creativity is just connecting things…A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.” ~ Steve […]


Watching the Chippendale dance tonight with the ladies tonight! Not as sleazy as I thought it was going to be, but the “B” team must have been performing in Minnesota as their choreography seemed a bit lacking.

Getting lower!

Getting lower!

How low can it go?

How low can it go? Well apparently down to at least $1.99! Gas has not been this low in years and I know that gas this low is not economically a good thing (the declining price of a barrel of crude oil has a great affect on countries that cannot compete economically with all this […]

Coming soon the bionic toe!

Two years after having toe surgery the pain continues and so today’s round of x-rays showed that my big toe joint is deteriorating. Apparently its genetic (great, thanks relatives) and was going to happen. So sometime between now and 5 years from now or basically when the pain in unbearable – which in reality will […]
