I'm not sure if everyone will like this or find it a bit scary, but your blogs are starting to attract attention in other areas on the Internet. I just wanted to send out congratulations to LuckyRobin who wrote about cooking and the heat which received a mention in a recent Kansas City Star article. A big congratulation on the mention!

Shower Cap Food Storage Video

August 23rd, 2006 at 04:30 am

Well all, here is the first video I made with the new digital video camera I just purchased. Bear in mind that this was purely a test video to see if I could 1) take it 2) upload it to my computer 3) edit it and 4) upload it to youtube - I managed all except for the editing which I'll have to figure out.

Anyway, since this is the first time to video tape something with this camera, I wasn't sure what to do. I was taught this little trick with a shower cap and storing food so decided to tape it. Anyway, here it is and be kind Wink

Hello Kitty and Nate

People find that the Hello Kitty problem I have with my wife so humorous that I decided to start recording the different things that come up with it in a new blog aptly named Hello Kitty Hell. When I went to Las Vegas this past weekend, I thought I was going to get a break from this unfortunate situation, but good old Nate wouldn't have anything to do with it. He insisted that we look for Hello Kitty items for my wife (and as you can see in the photo, he was having way too much fun with Hello Kitty). Ahhh, with friends like this...
