Here’s another sweet idea for your Valentine honey. The Ipod Shuffle now in candy coated colors!

Apple gets our hearts pumping with the release yesterday of their popular Ipod shuffle in new candy colors – Pink, Green, Blue, and my fav – Orange. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Pretty, tiny, and priced at $79, this would be a great gift idea for the music lover whom you’re trying to get into their pants to impress. And if your single its a great new toy for yourself! 

I’ve already picked up the Orange one for myself! :)  Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!

(Jan.30) We're scared. . . It’s Dick Cheney’s Birthday!

Hey Kids. It’s Dick Cheney’s Birthday!
Hide the kids, keep the dogs in the house and run for your lives. Its Darth Vader’s birthday and we’re scared!

Actually he scares us all the time. But the idea of a grizzled and drunken partyboy out there hunting somewhere is just too frightening. But so was watching him sitting there behind the President at the State of the Union speech recently. Where’s that “undisclosed location” when we need it?

Ahhh yes – (rape’m while you can) Haliburton, (lack of) Energy policy, (what) Global Warming (?), (water-boarding is not) Torture, and hunting quail. Boy, what a legacy. And to celebrate his birthday Wal-Mart is having a special on shotguns (NOT!).

So join us as we remember our Vice President by shooting some friends over at Dick Cheney’s Texas Takedown!

Oops!…I did it again
I played with your heart, got lost in the game
Oh baby, baby
Oops!…You think I’m in love

I’m not that innocent

Anniversaries of US Space Catastrophes
Its a somber time at NASA this week with the anniversaries of the Apollo 1, Challenger, and Columbia catastrophes.

On January 27, 1967 a fire broke out in the capsule of the Apollo 1 space capsule while astronauts were undergoing flight simulations. The fire killed the 3 astronauts aboard – Command Pilot Virgil I. Grissom, Senior Pilot Ed White, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee.

On January 28, 1986 the space shuttle Challenger exploded during launch killing all seven crew members – Dick Scobee (Cmdr), Michael J. Smith, Judith Resnik, Ellison Onizuka, Ronald Erwin McNair, Gregory Jarvis, and the first “teacher in space” Christa McAuliffe.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated during re-entry over Texas. All seven crew members aboard perished – Rick Husband (commander), Willie McCool (pilot), Michael P. Anderson, Laurel B. Clark, David M. Brown, the first Israeli astronaut, Ilan Ramon, and the first female astronaut of Indian birth, Kalpana Chawla.
