I guess my post with links for a Logitech Revue is invisible. You can streamline movies, watch them or tv and surf the net on your tv at the same time.

On a sketch pad while at work I'm designing a small 8'x8' man cave / roll-off roof observatory to be build in one corner of my back yard.

those are really cool, roadfix. what type/size telescope do you use?

i bought a small meade to be able to bring on backpacking, skiing, and canoe trips. the light pollution here so close to nyc is really bad, so the only time i get to use it is when we travel.


i just finshed scrubbing an entire bathroom, top to bottom. every freakin tile! the water here is so mineralized that i had to scrub 3x with clr, scrubbing bubbles, and chlorox cleanup to get the soap scum and hard water marks.

and now i can't breathe. my throat is filling with mucus from breathing all of the chemicals. now is the time to enter a loogey spitting contest, i guess.

trying not to make any loud noise. my two year old great granddaughter , lilly is napping in my bed. she cried for about one minute when her mom left. then potato chips and disney caught her attention. she fell asleep , and has been sleeping for two hours. easy baby sitting but not so much fun for me. last time she slept here was the big noise bleed when she woke up scaring the crap out of me.

Glad to see there's still some old school child rearing going on.
Sometimes veggies and a book just don't cut it
