Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s just part of the process.

What a perfect night out tonight…
What a perfect night out tonight, we should have a fire out back.
Avoid Walser Toyota
Got my car back from Walser Toyota after they “fixed” it. They did the worse job I have ever seen, they should be ashamed of them self’s. The hood has chips in it, the front grill is miss alined, there are different sized spaces around the hood and head lights and my steering requires me to lift my body to pull on the wheel before the car will turn. No honest dealer would call my car fixed, shame on you Walser!
I got my car back today after it had to go back to be corrected. Walser Toyota is still not resolving the issue. There are now chips on my hood and both front quarter panels that were not there before the accident. Walser is refusing to fix them.
Avoid going to Walser, they are not honest and do not do a satisfactory job.
Martian Dust Devel
I just think this is so cool, below is a picture of a Martian Dust Devel, moving across the Amazonis Planitia region of northern Mars. Quoting NASA:
An afternoon whirlwind on Mars lofts a twisting column of dust more than half a mile (800 meters) high in an image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Week taking care of Odin

The House must Know
To a cat/dog’s mind, when the people leave, the house gets colder and colder as time goes on, and bottoms out as they lay in the cold house. Then it starts warming back up as it gets closer to when the people get home until, the house is nice and warm and the people are home once again.
Lytro: The Next Revolution In Photography
Most camera’s focus on a single point in your shot and the rest is only sort of in focus or not at all. But those days may come to an end. The new Lytro technology allows the picture to be refocused after the picture is taken, forever, like a living photograph.
Light field technology captures all the light rays in a scene, which allows photographers to focus a photo after it has been taken. In traditional photography, photographers have had to focus the camera first and then snap. Lytro cameras, the company claims, will be able to be perfectly focus photos after the fact, forever into the future.
Below are a few samples of how it works, try clicking around on the pictures to refocus the shot.
And you can’t release or even talk about a new product without a video for it:
Letter’s, a phone number does not make
So the girl and I were going to order from Buca‘s today, but were unable to since their paper menu only has the phone number 651-SPA-GETT. If you look at your BlackBerry, THERE ARE NO LETTERS ON THE NUMBERS!!! (Well there are, but they don’t correspond to the correct numbers) So since I (or work rather) didn’t want to pay 411 for the call, Buca lost out of the sale, and we just ordered from the Green Mill, who dose allow modern phones to call them.
Maybe Buca should move to the modern age and update their menu’s.
