Comm Row

I really Hope this idea makes it.
CommRow - link: CommRow
They have a 15 story Climbing wall, and a large ligitimate climbing gym, indoor and out. No slot machines, just show venues, restaurant, and nightclubs etc. They are doing a skate park on top of the parking garage. Zip lines from the parking garge to the main building. Very cool concept.

Our sanctuary

I went out to check on James in the garage this saturday morning because it was too quiet. There is ussually banging and the sound of things falling. It's the quiet I worry about, it means real mischief. I walked out and found him in this position, totally content, he said "I upside down dad".  He was hanging out laying on this skate board inbetween the bikes and toys.

We spend alot of time in the garage. We like it out there, James cant keep his hands of my tools, they are like candy, makes me proud...

Reasons to Wear a Full Face Helmet

Exhibit A:
At this particular point, I said "whoa"
 Here I was thinking; I'm super glad we cleared the rocks from the landing strip.
My thoughts here; This helmet is cozy.

Exercise ball

My son is learning the about the excitement of doing daring things at a young age. I didn't learn these valuable lessons until I was at least 7 or 8 years old. Skip forward to 1:40 for the abbreviated version.

Balanced Budget - It's a no brainer

The Government  is asking for us to approve more loans for them to pay government expenses that are set to increase from now till forever by 6% to 8% a year (lookup Fed baseline accounting), because they cant make our payments? And they wont promise to try and balance our budget? Essentially they will only commit to needing more money! Are you joking me? No. Loan Denied. Board of directors fired. They would deny themselves if the tables were turned.

Reid and his crew think its "radical" to pass an amendment for a balanced budget? An amendment to live within our mean is radical? So the un-radical, normal way to live is on credit?  

Cuss...I'm mad enough to write a boring blog on the out of touch folks in Washington.

Cyanoacrylate - Superglue

Slid into 3rd base, on a dirt and gravel field, wearing shorts. We won the game against the No. 1 team so I guess I'm ok with it. It probably needed stitches, but my wife used some super glue. Worked pretty well actually. I was pretty nervous about it stinging, or not working, (I had never heard of using super glue on big cuts). Wife says I was a baby... 

The inventor of cyanoacrylates, Harry Coover, has stated that in 1966 that a Cyanoacrylate spray was used in the Vietnam War to retard bleeding in wounded soldiers until they could be brought to a hospital.[citation needed] Butyl cyanoacrylate has been used medically since the 1970s outside the US, but due to its potential to irritate the skin, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration did not approve its use as a medical adhesive until 1998 with Dermabond.
