Car Wreck...

So this morning I was involved in a little NASCAR like accident. Except for the fact that there was A dog on the track & we were going opposite directions... It was just like a race. I could see him skidding toward me, I dropped below the white line, into the grass. Almost missed me... But clipped my left side & pushed me into the inside wall(barbwire fence) and blew out my left rear GoodYears. Luckily no one injured, my LogRog-Wildcat-DuPont-O'reilly pit crew fixed me enough to drive it in to the garage & figure out what to do next. Thankful for insurance and God's protection. No Fist fights were reported, & the other guys insurance is already to pay up on Friday... Pray for big $, but not too big :-).

So...I'm going to give this blogging thing a try. Today...Was one of the best days I can remember. First let me say that SATO48 is going on, and Barrett spent the night at Skyler & Chad's after a late night of film making with Team C O X. (I know that you think...but its not the case) it just means that we were empty nesters for the weekend.
We slept in (which loosely reads got up around 7:30 as empty nesters were old...and can't sleep late) It's my sisters Birthday so we called her and talked to Italy for a while. (My parents may be delayed coming home because of the Volcano in Iceland) wow...what a bummer, longer in Italy :-) I know they are ready to come home... We then got around and headed in to town...
We did a couple of errands, went to the farmers market, I got me truck washed (first time since I owned it...i know thats weak) and went to Rock-n-Ribs. Wow...that was fun. I have wanted to go for several years, but it has just never worked out. Today was awesome...we ate some STELLAR BBQ and bumped into a bunch of people that we knew. We then went to Kaleidoscope and Cindy got a new nose ring. (its great...finally a hoop :-)
We then did a "pop in" visit to the Burchs...had a great little visit with them.
We then went to pick up Skyler at work...took her home, hung out at her loft for a while...and then came home. Been hanging out all night with my gorgeous bride. (who by the way got a bit of sun today) What a great day!
Can't wait for tomorrow.

Mahmoud al-Mabhouh's Assassination Timeline (be careful who you make enemy's with)

By Channel 4 News
Updated on 17 February 2010
Dubai police have released a minute-by-minute account of events they say led to the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month - most of which was caught on CCTV.

On 20 January Hamas military leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his Dubai hotel after an apparent assassination.
Dubai police have collated hours of CCTV footage in a bid to track down the people they believe killed the leader. In a 27-minute composite police have mapped-out the events they believe led to the murder in at the al-Bustan hotel.
19 Jan 2010
12:09 Nineteen hours before Mahmoud al-Mabhouh is found dead two suspects arrive in Dubai carrying passports with the names Michael Bodenheimer and James Leonard Clarke. Their documents state they are German and British nationals.
12:30 Two more suspects, including the only woman in the group, arrive from Paris holding Irish passports. They use the names Gail Folliard and Kevin Daveron.
01:00 Within the next hour all four suspects check in to two separate hotels in Dubai. Police believe the two pairs are surveillance teams sent ahead to gather intelligence on their target.
Officers believe that none of the suspects made direct calls to one another during their visit to Dubai - however a number of "suspicious" international phone calls were made to Austria, the suspected "command centre".
02:29 A man using the name of French national Peter Elvinger is met on his arrival in Dubai by another member of the team. Ten minutes later they both leave the airport in different directions and check in to hotels.
20 Jan 2010
10:30 Ten hours before al-Mabhouh is found dead a number of the suspects, including Miss Folliard, Mr Daveron and Peter Elvinger, arrive at a shopping centre separately. Within the next hour the suspects leave with Miss Folliard carrying a number of bags.

What are Favicons! besides 16px X 16px jpg or png files ?

Favicons are a very useful method of branding your blog with your personal style, and are a useful recognition tool for your readers to identify your blog. If you are reading Blogger Buster in Firefox (or have bookmarked my site in IE) you will see an example of a favicon in the left hand corner of your address bar.

After 2 years, a family circle is complete

A Houston couple adopting a Haitian orphan thought the wait was over.
Then came the earthquake…


Holding her 6-week-old, Jude, Debra Parker hugs Ronel, 9, who arrived from Haiti on Thursday with his dad, Ernest Parker. New sister Carly, 12, and brother Colton, 10, were at the airport, too.
Debra Parker and three of her four children stood facing the baggage claim escalator at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. A semicircle of friends and family fanned out behind them. As step by rolling step flattened at the bottom, empty, the circle grew restless. Debra turned to look back at them.
“This is how I felt for two weeks,” she said.
Debra's husband, Ernest Parker, has spent the last two weeks sleeping on the waiting room floor of the American Embassy in Port-au-Prince, where he was picking up the family's long-awaited fourth child: 9-year-old Ronel. The Parkers have been trying to adopt the boy, an orphan who nearly starved to death, for two years.
Ronel was freed to immigrate to the U.S. after the recent earthquake, but a bureaucratic breakdown delayed his exit while Ernest haggled endlessly with Haitian and American officials.

Leprosenhaus an internationally recognized teaching hospital (The Hospital that Gary Wilson is recovering in)

Chronicle Clinic Traunstein

The history of Traunstein hospitals dates back to medieval times. A leper or infirm was originally constructed in the suburb of the Holy Spirit and is documented evidence already 1431st We will limit ourselves in our little historical perspective, however, essentially on this hospital, which is located below the Guntramshügel.
