I tried this when I was a little kid… only I was using arm wings made of cardboard and old jeans, and I was jumping off of a deck.  It didn’t work, LOL.  I will rate this as super cool, but I am to old to actually try it!

Today, a buddy of mine stopped in the office…. we were slow and he had some sparklers he just bought in Tennessee.  Next thing ya know, I am out in the field watching my first sparkler bomb go boom! He said we used lame tape (all we had in the office) and it normally is 4 times louder than this! They were also the “mini” sparklers.   I will say it was much louder than the video shows.

Here is a pic

I always make the kids wait until the first BIG snow, you know the kind, big snow that stops school buses!  Then we hop on google and type in “Snow ice cream”.  There are a ton of variations, but they are all close to this one.  This one is VERY simple and we had everything, so here is the one we made:

  • 8 cups snow
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk

“When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.”

We just scooped up some snow in a huge bowl, then made it.  It was OK, as long as your not expecting it to taste like…. ice cream.  But then Ethan had a GREAT idea, he took oreo cookies and crushed them into powder in a ziplock.  We added that to our snow ice cream, and it was then fantastic.  Hint: make and consume immediately!  The taste and texture drop very quick as it warms up!

Let me know if you make some, and let me know what you think.  Did you try a different recipe or add something extra?  Post in comments to let us know!

Wow, so apparently when I ordered my current desktop PC 4 years ago, it was a “good” one with a whopping 512 of ram…. it has been really slow lately, so I called up Dell.  I really WANT a laptop, but NEED a PC that works, so I ordered up 2 GB of ram! I found a generic spot online for 79, dell was 99, but came down to $65!

Can’t wait to get it and install it…. anybody got any install tips?  I have NO clue!  I don’t even know if the old one has to come out.  He said I have a 4 slot ram thingy and my new 2GB is a 2 slot??  Can I leave the 512, or must it come out?

PLEASE leave a comment if ya know!  Thanks in advance for your help! 🙂

OK, I don’t wanna “copy” off a buds blog, but I did take this from Stevan Sheets blog.  It is a video, that pretty well sums up my feelings at the beginning and end of every Christmas season…. but I somehow lose track of it in the inbetween.  Click Here to watch 2:39 video.

What are you thankful for?

I woke up at 6am…as I laid in bed, I started thinking of what I am thankful for.  I am thankful for a lot.  Here are just a few that come to mind.  I am thankful for a forgiving God that loves me even when I do things he hates.  I am thankful for my Wife, she is amazing.  I am thankful for my 3 amazing kids… they make me smile just thinking of them!  I am thankful for awesome parents, they to have always loved me, even when I am not a great son.  I am thankful for all my friends…. both old ones and new ones. It’s great having friends isn’t it?   I am thankful for our Church, it has made a big difference in my life.  I am thankful for an awesome job, an awesome boss and great customers, thanks for your loyalty Gary!  I am thankful for the right and ability to make choices… that is one of the greatest gifts God gave us.  I am thankful for the country I live in, and the freedoms that we have.  I am thankful for all the men and woman that serve in our Armed forces and that have died for my freedom… that sounds pretty repeated, but it takes on a whole new meaning when I remember that people I personally knew and worked with on a daily basis in the Army are now DEAD…. they died fighting evil for you and me. I am thankful for great health and a bunch of other things that I take for granted all the time until I sit down to think about.  I am thankful I still have my legs (read My Testimony, its on a tab at top of page.)

Last and for sure least, I am thankful for stuff.  Its hard to remember that all material things are just “stuff”.  Not saying I am not thankful for stuff like Houses, cars, etc., but stuff is nothing without all of the first paragraph.
