Swimming at Windmill Point Rock Quarry

Yesterday (e:terry), (e:matthew) and I went swimming at the quarry again. This time we spent a lot of time in the middle with goggles. There us some crazy stuff down three including a pirate ship with mast and skeletons, a bathtub and a large recreational boat. It was fun trying to swim down far enough to touch it. Next weekend I am bringing nose plugs.

Chicken Hips at ETS

After discussing chicken wings last night (e:Mike) and I headed over to ETS. We ordered mild wings and 20 minutes later hot ones came out. I hate spicy food but considering how long it takes we decided to eat them anyways. There was one really strange shaped super large one in the middle.

bird-bird

She loves sitting on me outside. Except today she was on my shoulder while I was grilling and she decided that was the time to practice flying.

Ant Tragedy

Sorry guys but I was so tired of you nesting by my kitchen and sitting around my sink. It was time to deal with it before we had to involve spray.

I know (e:tinypliny) pretends that I should live and let live. But I know its because she thinks I didn't see that bottle of borax in your shoe closet.

Its official, I am totally turning into my father.

Schleswig-Holstein doesn't "like" facebook

I find this interesting. The state in germany where I went to college has banned the facebook like button from being used on any website served within its borders due to data privacy issues,

The German State of Schleswig-Holstein has ordered all state sites to remove Facebook's "like" button. Sites that fail to comply could face fines of up to 50,000 euros, or about $72,000.

Schleswig-Holstein's data protection commissioner, Thilo Weicher, ordered the shutdown after an analysis by his office showed that Facebook builds profiles of users and non-users alike with the "like" button's data. Because such data collection violates Germany's data protection laws, Weicher has given websites operated in Schleswig-Holstein until September 30th to remove all "like" buttons.

Children of the corn

Its only a matter of time before they get here.

KANSAS CITY, Mo (Reuters) - The weekend shooting of three teenagers at a large late-night "flash mob" gathering prompted local authorities to pass an ordinance on Thursday that sets curfews as early as 9 p.m. for people under age 18.

At the urging of Mayor Sly James, the Kansas City Council passed the ordinance 13-0, allowing police to issue citations to parents whose children violate the curfew. Parents can be fined up to $500 per violation.

Three youths aged 13 to 16 were injured by apparently random gunshots at about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night in an upscale shopping and restaurant district called Country Club Plaza.

Brain eating Amoeba now in virginia

The brain eating amoeba found in fresh water is now in virginia. This is why I only like to swim in swift moving water and deep water.

A nine-year-old Virginia boy has become the second child in the U.S. to die this month after being infected by a dangerous freshwater amoeba, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Tuesday.

The boy, identified by family members as Christian Strickland, died Aug. 5. An autopsy found the death had been caused by primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, which occurs after the amoeba enters the brain.

The Richmond boy's death comes roughly a week after Florida girl Courtney Nash, 16, was killed by the same parasite, which is commonly found in lakes and rivers.

Christian's mother, Amber Strickland, said he had been dunked in an unidentified body of water during a fishing camp he attended the week before he died. She told the Times-Dispatch she believes that is when he took in the contaminated water.

"He went from playing video games to being brain dead," she said.

The disease, which cannot be transmitted person-to-person, spreads rapidly and usually results in death within days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Health officials say that while the amoeba is rarewith just 32 infections in the U.S. from 2001 to 2010it does increase in summer months when the water temperature rises.

Christian's death marked the first amoeba death in Virginia since 1969.

According to the Mayo Clinic Website, Naegleria infection begins within one to two weeks of exposure to the amoeba, and symptoms can include a change in the sense of smell or taste, fever, sudden headache, nausea, vomiting, confusion and loss of balance. The symptoms can progress rapidly and typically lead to death within three to seven days.

Anyone who experiences these symptoms after swimming should seek medical attention immediately.

Thank God For Unlimited Data

Well, we all kept or grandfathered unlimited data plan from AT&T although up until now we never used it. Until now that is. (e:matthew) finally crossed over into the almost 8GB range for monthy broadband usage. I think the faster the phone, the nice the screen the more you use.

I am trying to at least play pandora more to get my money's worth. I barely ever use 1GB and I never even turn wifi on.

The Shittiest Pet Ever

I saw the tortoise we freaking out as his face was covered with flies. Turns out the flies were there because the stupid tortoise went to town on some wild cat diarrhea. He stank so bad that even after I hosed him down he was covered in flies. I hate cats. I wish they would all die.

I don't understand why he likes cat poop so much. Its not like cats have any bit similar diet. Right now he is on his way back hunting for more.
