I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Happy birthday to me!

Ben and Jerry ice cream cake....mmm....

I'd like to thank my mother and father for making me possible.

TSA Checkride

Flunked. Passed a lot of the hard parts. Will do better next time. Recheck on the 5th of March. Plus side: a week off, and I'm home with the wife and kids in Houston. Yes, I'm studying. The notecards went with me about town today. Going back a couple of days before my first retraining sim to really hit it hard.

In my defense, lots of us have flunked orals and/or checkrides. Smarter guys than me flunked the oral the first time.

The stories have also been coming out about why this is not an unusual thing. Anecdotally, flunking and even flunking out at TSA seems not to be such a big deal. Hopefully any future employers will take my TSA experience with a grain of salt.

Kimberly Thinks

"Please momma, let us ride our bikes to school."
They get there and everyone has their bike locked up.
'Let's take your bike back home.'
"Nooooo!"
'But you don't have a lock or anything.'
"Yes, I do."
(Kimberly takes out shoelaces she has gotten from her other pair of shoes....)
'Don't you think that someone could just cut those if they wanted your bike?'
"Oh, they wouldn't do that."


So the bikes are secured....by a shoelace each.
