It’s about time

Category: Interesting Links,Life — Posted by Michael at 0504

Today is an important day in the history of the state of New Jersey. I know, you’re thinking, “He’s happy about tax day?”  Well, good news for you is that taxes aren’t du til the 17th this year, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Today is the day that New Jersey finally joins the ranks of other smarter states and enacts a ban on smoking in restaurants, bars and other public places. No longer will we have to be greeted with “smoking or non” when we enter a restaurant. Nor will we have to choke on smoke that wafts through the invisible wall that supposedly separates smoking and non-smoking sections.

All I can say is this law is way overdue. Learn more about why this is such good news at thetruth.com.

Family Tree is Back!!!

Category: Genealogy,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 1718

After several months offline, the family tree is back! It’s got a new name, a whole new look and more features than ever. It’s no longer restricted to one small part of the family, it includes all parts of the family now. Some sections are still under construction, but just keep watching because more and more will be added over time.

Some features of interest are that every detail page now has a place for external links where you can see family members’ own personal wesbites, a surname list to give you idea of what names are in my family tree data, a genealogy research resource page and more.

More Flying Spaghetti Monster

Category: Interesting Links,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1806

I forgot one thing in my previous post about The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. A lot of “devout” religious people have sent the author many e-mails. Reading them can only lead you to one concusion… Apparently, in order to be a religious person, you also have to be a foul-mouthed moron. Not saying that’s true, but that is the impression these people give in their letters.

You can read the various letters by clicking here.

Happy 30th Apple!

Category: Interesting Links,Technology — Posted by Michael at 1029

You already know I’m a fan of Apple computers so it won’t come to surprise that I think their 30th anniversary is a cool thing. Despite many woes over the years the company is going stronger than ever. Surprisingly, it isn’t their computers that put them in the great shape they’re in today, but instead it was their iPod. Of course, I never leave home these days without my iPod so maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
