Pinewood Derby

Garret's car placed 3rd in the Wolf category (out of 14 cars). It's not quite up to Kirk's classic designs, but it raced well. Garret's is the minimalist green with blue racing stripe. The red, white, and blue pick-up is Garret's friend Kyle's car, whose dad Troy just happens to be a racecar mechanic. That was the Wolf winner.

Chuck Norris

Ever wonder why Chuck Norris is such a bad-ass dude. Me neither. However, this web site helps answer the question - plus it's pretty damn funny. I think I might have to talk to my bosses about adopting one of the items:

Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.

Other favorites:

Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparalleled martial arts ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.

When Chuck Norris sends in his taxes, he sends blank forms and includes only a picture of himself, crouched and ready to attack. Chuck Norris has not had to pay taxes ever.

As a teen Chuck Norris impregnated every nun in a convent tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Nine months later the nuns gave birth to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only undefeated and untied team in professional football history.

Here are the top 30 Chuck Norris facts:

They have a Mr. T and Vin Diesel list too, but they aren't quite as good as the Chuck one. I've always been a Mr. T fan, but Chuck might take him.

Welcome to the Real World

Nothing better than to start off with a quote from The Matrix.

I finally decided I needed an easy way to communicate with my friends, family, etc. This will be an easy way to share ideas, photos, and random musings.

We'll see where this takes us.
