Halloween 2009

Finally got around carving pumpkins here for Halloween this year. Not long ago me and the kids where at the local craft store picking up some Perler beads and we came across some pumpkin carving design books. No surprise that my daughter wanted the Disney Princess design book. My son went for the scary pumpkin design book, which was a bit of a surprise to me but he was quite certain that was what he wanted.

Tonight was the night to finally carve the pumpkins up, so we dug out the design books, brought the pumpkins we had bought in from the garage and set to work. My daughter decided on the Sleeping Beauty design, and my son went with the three headed dog. After about an hour we finally had two carved up pumpkins ready for display on Halloween. Since many of you that come here will not come by our house to check them out here are a couple of photos.

So what did you carve on your pumpkins this year?

Game Distractions

I do not play a lot of computer games anymore, partly because it is hard to find the time to devote to such things. I do find time to play to occasional flash game on the Internet though. Here are a few of the games that have distracted me lately from the regular day to day activities.

Warzone Tower Defence

Cure for the Common Cold

I have been feeling under the weather for the last few days. Nothing major just the common cold, you know runny nose, a little achy and the occasional cough. We are not talking N1H1 or anything drastic, but it has been putting me to bed early and I have not been as productive at work as I could be. Feeling a little under the weather I thought I would stop this cold dead in its tracks and get the cure for the common cold. Now I know you are all wondering how I could have found the cure for the common cold, since some of the greatest medical doctors can’t seem to solve this great mystery. The answer is simple really, and is probably only a short drive from your home.

The cure for the common cold is Taco Time! That is right, Taco Time. I have discovered this after many years of testing knowing that when I start to feel ill with a cold that a visit to Taco Time, and a simple order of a Super Beef Soft Taco, Mexi Fries, a drink and copious amounts of hot sauce will send the cold packing. So the next time you are feeling a little under the weather head on out to Taco Time and show that cold who is boss.

Of course everyone has their cure for the cold. What do you do?
