This is kind of hard to watch, but you will anyway.
THIS is fun to watch and you deserve it if you made it all the way through that last video.

WOW. It has been more then a month since I posted here. I guess I have just been putting stuff on FB.
We got some hail for a min or so today, but nothing to worry about.
I was reading an article in Wired about why Flash sucks and thought it was funny that Adobe says that Flash does not drain batteries. I know when I run Flash apps my fan kicks on high and the battery does not last long. I also read this blog post from Steve Jobs that told his side of why they don't support it.
So I got done reading and I had 2:15 left on the battery. I launched Country Living and all of a sudden (2 min later) I have less then an hour.

So, yea.. Flash does suck batteries.

What a great day. It was about 50 and sunny. I washed 2 cars and a truck and defrosted the freezer in the garage and moved it to a better place (closer to the door)
I got the tool cabinet finished and put under my bench. That worked out really well. I want to make 2 more cabinets to fit under there, but I need to make something for the house first. Otherwise it just looks bad. I started using pegboard for the bottom of drawers in the shop a while back. It works well because you can put dividers into them and put small 3/4" screws from the bottom and hold them in place. It is quick and easy, and you can move the dividers when your needs change.
I really liked these five second films.

sorry, Rick

I have heard that when Rick Nelson had his five neck guitars made he did it to end the multi-neck-guitar-wars. Sorry, Rick.. it is still on.

I had the day off and started to build a cabinet that will go above the toilet in the kids' bathroom. We painted yesterday and replaced fixtures and stuff. It looks much better in there. I have to get some oak to make the doors tomorrow.
Here is my favorite commercial right now.
