Random Thoughts 1/14/11

  • "Castle" got renewed for another season by ABC.  Apples!
  • So the Broncos are going to fix their problems by hiring the coach who did the worst job in the NFL last year, the 2-14 John Fox.  Hmmm…
  • The next iPad, supposedly with cameras facing both front and back, is rumored to be scheduled for release the first week of April.  
  • I'm still sitting on a $15 gift card to iTunes.  Most of the cool things to buy are games that I don't have time to play.  I rarely buy music.  I'd gladly buy a book or two, but "browsing" in iBooks' bookstore is like looking through a proverbial straw for the proverbial needle in the proverbial haystack.  I'm sure there are some great books in there, but if you don't already know what you're looking for, you're not likely to just stumble onto something.
  • Congrats to our friend, Jay-rod, and his wife on the birth of their little boy, Nathaniel.  Today also happens to be the anniversary of the first successful cesarean section birth in the United States… in 1794.  It was successful in the sense that the mother survived.  The father was the surgeon. 
  • I ordered a tungsten carbide wedding band off the internet.  It turns out this type of ring often doesn't fit quite the same as gold bands.  So this new ring is about a half size too big and can't be re-sized.  Grrr…  It's really close so I might keep it, but I wish it just fit better.
  • The Jayhawks are rolling along, undefeated so far.  But what happened to K-State?!  The wheels are kind of coming off there.  C'mon, Wildcats.  You can do better than that.
  • I love it when snow stays on the ground through the week.  It's just prettier than the rest of the grey-ish brown winters we have here in Kansas.  Thank goodness that global warming junk turned out to be a lot of hogwash.

Yay! (For Castle, my favorite show on TV!)

And I think you answered your own question-- what to do with a $15 iTunes gift card... In the previous point, you mentioned about the new iPad2 coming out in a few months (hopefully), so do what I'm doing: I'm sitting on my iTunes store credit until I get a new iPad2, then I can afford to download a few apps that I know I'll want!

What is with you and your wife and buying jewelry on the internet. You have both had bad experiences. They have these stores on every corner called jewelry store with JEWELERS inside them to fit you and find something you can afford. Jeesh. Terry
