Beer Bottle Caps

Ok, I have a bad habit of collecting what my wife calls Junk. If I see a nice bottle, matchbook or bottle cap, I have a tendency to keep it for awhile. Maybe I was a squirrel in a past life, collecting shiny objects. With the bottles at least I can use them for home brew, with the bottle caps, I thought it would be really cool to make a mosaic, but that is a big project. Well, I found something to do with those caps…… refrigerator magnets ! I went down to the craft store picked up a hot glue gun, and some magnets.Hot Glue & MagnestsThe CapsI had the capsglueJust glue the magnets inside the caps,undefined so there you go thats all you need.

undefined Your caps can now join the rest of your magnets.

Google Maps Street View

Google Maps Street View is a bout a year old. If you haven't seen it yet you might want to check it out. it looks like this,View Larger Map
I recently looked at my house with this was kind of cool but, kind of creepy at the same time,there was my place and there was Kate watering the lawn. Creepy, we didn't even know that they were there at the time. Then again it is kind of cool that Kate is there, it makes ours kind of personalized. It is also kind of cool that we can go sight seeing in our own home and see things like the Brady Bunch House, movie studios or Yosemite.

It looks like they haven't gotten every where mapped yet. If your walking your dog or driving around you might see the car doing this, so keep an eye out, you can be immortalized, or mortified.

Meerkats and me

This will be were I will share a ll the news about me once I have time.
until then check out this. This is video of one of the best times of my life. It was about four years ago, n 2004 my wife suprised me with a visit to the Meerkat Rescue in Morongo Valley, Ca. I believe it is the only meerkat rescue in the US, and the only place you can actually interact with the meerkats. Pam Walberg is the founder, as well as the consultant for Meerkat Manor. Disney also consultanted her while working on the Lion King, and based that meerkat on one who was actually living at the rescue.
