Cookie Monster

The wife and daughter just spent over two hours making these, they'll probably last about 2 seconds where they're going.

New iphone wireless technology

From what we can gather, the device is hardwired directly to your
brain through your teeth and allows you to transfer your thoughts
direct to the iphone. At this point we are unaware if the reverse is
posible. A trusted source tells us that there are still a number of
issues with the device the biggest of which is having to keep your
mouth open when transmitting data, closing your mouth shuts down the
comm link.
Issues aside this looks to be the way of the future...

Taking over our lives

Technology, iphones, internet, facebook... all incredible advances...
I'm able to do things that were science fiction just a couple years
ago. Communicating with family and friends at a touch of button, post
a blog from my iphone while on the go, check the weather, check the
traffic, leap over tall buildings in a single bound!

But at what cost... we're spending less and less time together,
physically there, but our brains hardwired to facebook.

Last night I got the kids to shutdown their machines at 8pm, 5 minutes
later Rapha is on his guitar, Isa is with him singing and whoa! whats
that sound, LOL for real! OK a bit of an exageration, but sadly
something that is happening, with our whole social landscape morphing
into a virtial reality.

So tell me, how has all this new fangled stuff affected your lives?

First born

the braces came off today , whooo hoo... "Hey dad, guess what, I ate a persimmon without having to slice it into little pieces!"  ah, the simple joys of life, so much we take for granted.

A mate of mine at the office just had their first baby a couple of weeks ago and are now going through the sleepless nights and accompanying fears and frustrations... does it ever end, sorry mate... I'm fifteen years in and I still get sleepless nights!!! in truth though I wouldn't change anything for the world, just seeing her growing up from that tiny bundle of joy into the young lady she is now, its worth it....

Early morning blues

There's something about waking up at 5:00am and feeling the cool brisk

morning air as you step out the door... NOT! Could have used an extra hour
of sleep but had to bring eldest child to basketball only to find out
when we got there that the session had been cancelled!

Happy to say they won (26-16 - their first win of the season)...  reckon it was the shoes that made the difference :)

Riddle me this

I never was, am always to be,
None ever saw me, nor ever will,
And yet I am the confidence of all
Who live and breath on this terrestial ball. --Anonymous

What we see

Not always what it actually is
