Props to Flip4Mac

I'd like to thank these folks, particularly Joyce Garrett, for donating a license for their WMV Studio Pro HD so that I can transcode TV for the troops deployed in Iraq. Huge help!

After a long day of sorting flight times, paperwork, etc. and having to redo some of it, involving hours of work, and having to fill it all out just so, I'd like to say:

"Please don't confuse me with any more facts."

My own little world has so much more to offer than reality, and they know me there.

My son has his own little world too, but it's populated by him and a multitude of cartoon characters, superheroes, and the like. Keep it that way, son, just don't let anyone else find it or know about it. Unless it becomes a career somewhere down the road. Walt Disney had his own little world too. All that from a mouse.

When technology catches up

It happened while you were sleeping. You've got product A, made better by product B, and then there's a breakthrough. You've always wanted product C integrated with A and B. I'm of talking about waffles, of course. Waffles, A, Syrup, B, would be nice with butter, C but have you ever tried to butter a waffle? Sure, you could melt it, pour it over, but what was really missing was SPRAY butter, or as advertised by Fabio, 'I Can't Believe It's not Butter'. How were we supposed to get a nice even coating of butter in all those holes?!? Now, a nice quick, even coating of butter flavor. I can deal with it not being butter, as you use less, net effect = more healthy. You gotta draw the lines somewhere and as for me, it's sometimes Diet Coke and a burger without Mayo. Here, I stop short of the real butter. And FWIW, Aldi stores right now have some GREAT waffles that totally pwn Eggo. Leggo your Eggo? Gladly, sir.

Coolness. Aaron kept calling it a jet. We were taxiing for takeoff, and there's a B-17 on the ramp. Engine shutdown checklist. We took the tour twice. Ya gotta stop. This one will be at Wiley Post Airport in Oklahoma City (technically, Bethany, OK) until Oct 4.

See the CAF's page on the B-17 here.
