Happy Birthday Oliver!

Oliver was born four years ago today.  What a joy he has been in our family's lives.  Here is a short 2 minute slideshow of his life as a 3 year old.

Flashback of scary spitting laughing man on the wall of the cabin

For some reason I remembered this creepy toy on the wall, with the laugh.  I think Grandma had a rule that we could only pull the tie once a day.  It kept us kids entertained.

Happy Mothers Day

Yesterday my Mom and Dad came over for dinner.  Austin, Jacob and I were busy making chicken, mashed potatoes, fruit salad, rolls, pumpkin pie.  We were in the kitchen for hours!  But it was like thanksgiving and it was delicious.  Cathi was able to just read to the little ones while we made dinner.

I sure love Cathi.  She is a fantastic Mother!  We are currently attending a dance class on Saturdays for four weeks.  We've learned Foxtrot and Cha Cha.  She's so patient with me.  I occasionally make a mistake and step on her foot.  Plus I wear my normal everyday boots which are steel-toed.  Not the best dance shoe, especially for her.

MSNBC edits out profanity from video of Al Jazeera correspondence

This morning I saw this video on MSNBC, and while the Al Jazeera reporter was talking I heard a male voice I assume coming from potty mouth Joe Scarborough from the MSNBC studio whisper the "F" word a couple of times.  They have since edited out that whispering.  The editing was so poor that you can hear the clicks of when they removed the whispering.  Listen closely at 4:36 and you hear the sound all of a sudden get "smothered", and then a "click" where the whisper removal happens at 4:50.

I am amazed that it was allowed to go unedited for several hours.  I had troubles with my Audacity this morning cause I wanted to record it, but gave up after wasting time with it.

MSNBC,  make sure your idiots in the studio who whisper stuff for whatever reasons (which is totally audible and annoying), at least use language that isn't obscene.
