  Spending A Cool And Quiet Sunday Afternoon With My New Gadget Toy     Posted: Sunday 10 August 2008 19:22
A few days ago I got me a new gadget toy, an Amazon Kindle, and I am totally impressed?

For the last few years I have been listening to Audio Books for the enjoyment of books. My attention span has never been very long. I find it difficult to sit still and read a book. However, Audio Books have allowed me to listen to a book while doing something else. Be it working at my computer or setting outside my RV and enjoying the odd stogy and or cool brewski.

Since my Amazon Kindle arrived the other day I am finding myself spending a lot more time reading, really reading and not in the sense that listening to an Audio Book is also called reading.

I have found myself enjoying reading again and in new and different ways. I am in the process of reading 3 books at the same time, well not simultaneously. I am reading two books related to internet business and I am reading a for fun book titled "The Best Time Travel Stories of the 20th Century."

The size and ease of use has made it so convenient for me to just pick it up and read for 10 or 15 minutes then put it back down then again an hour later pick it up and start again right where I left off in any book. It is so handy that I will be able to add it to my Batman Utility Belt of digital gadgets. Where ever I am with time on my hands, even for only a few minutes, I will be able to read a few pages or even a chapter of a book. I learned a long time a go that you can complete any task if you take it in bite sized pieces.

I realize that I am under the influence of "New Toy" so I will write again about my Amazon Kindle sometime later after I have gotten used to having it and it is no longer new.
  It Is Chilly This Morning. Now, I'm Not Complaing Just Amazed     Posted: Sunday 10 August 2008 13:27
Here it is the 10th of August and this morning I awoke early around 5:30 AM and had to turn on the electric blanket. It was down right chilly.

It is now about noon and the temperature outside is 66 degrees. I have my sweat pants on with a pair of socks to keep my piggies worm.

I, like most of you, have heard all the hype about this supposed global warming theory. Well my anecdotal view is it has to be a bunch of bunk. I also have read that the average temperature of the earth has actually dropped 1 degree over the last 10 years.

Remember, the actor, who is an environmental "expert," Ted Danson who claimed, in 1989, that if we did nothing to fight global warming, our planet would be uninhabitable in 10 years. Well the global average temperature is now 1 degree less than it was when he made that prediction. I have enjoyed most of Ted Danson's shows he has acted in, but I can't accept him as an environmental "expert." sorry Ted.
  Well Today Is Friday And I Learn I Didn't Have To Rush To See The Mummy 3     Posted: Friday 8 August 2008 9:17
As the title implies the latest schedule at La Grande Movies shows that The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor with Brendan Fraser was renewed for another week.

But how was I to know? La Grande Movies doesn't tell you which movies will continue next week and which one doesn't. For that matter neither does their phone line which has a recorded schedule.

Oh well, I'm glad I got to see the movie, even if it was squeezed it at the last minute.
  Played Hookie Again This Afternoon And Went To See The Mummy 3     Posted: Thursday 7 August 2008 18:16
I got a message this afternoon from an associate that I have been working with who said he was going to be away from the office for a couple of hours. So I quickly looked up the movie schedule for the Granada Theater here in La Grande and found that they had a matinee at 1:40. It was then 1:15 so I hot footed it down to the theater and saw The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor with Brendan Fraser.

Yes, it was pretty good. Different kind of mummy than the first two but still full of thrills and spectacular special effects. Well worth going to see on the big scree. The Granada Theater screens are not huge by most cineplex standards but compared to my TV it is big screen.

The main reason I made the effort to see The Mummy today was I don't know if it will still be playing next week or not. The web site for La Grande Movies only tells you which movie(s) are starting for the next week. They don't tell you which one(s) are ending. So rather than take the chance of it being The Mummy which gets removed from the schedule I decided to make the effort to see it today.

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

This past week has been an extremely busy work week for me. I have mentioned in the past that I have entered into a new business relationship with a big internet player. This past week was the first week into that new adventure. In a week or so I will discuss that business project in a little more detail. For now the project is just getting off the ground.

Though I was busy working I did take some time off to have a little fun. Friday afternoon I went to the Granada Theater and saw the latest Batman movie The "Dark Knight." I must say I really enjoyed the movie. Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker was a work of art. He was such an intense actor. He appeared to become the Joker. It is a tragedy and a great loss to the acting profession that he died this year.

All the actors, Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent / Two Face, Michael Caine as  ever faithful Alfred, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes and Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon. I first became aware of Gary Oldman when he played the heavy in Air Force One with Harrison Ford. He was such a sinister character in that movie, it was a treat to see him play a likeable character.

This week I also started reading the Batman Chronicles V. 1, which is a series of books that chronicles the first comic books of Batman starting with the very first Batman comic in May 1939. Also contained in this volume is the very first appearance of the Joker in 1940. These reprints are in color and are fun to read.

Also playing now is The Mummy 3 movie The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. I definitely want to watch it this week because movies, even blockbusters tend to only show for a couple of weeks. I don't want to miss it.

Then on Saturday morning I went to the Union County Fair held here in La Grande. It has been over 40 years since I last went to a Union Count Fair. I went early enough in the day to be well ahead of the crowd and was able to enjoy looking the various live stock on display.

So, even thought I have been working pretty hard, I still managed to enjoy the good life here in La Grande.

This week also marked an important event for me, I finally got the first 10 pounds off on my latest diet. In the past that first 10 has been the hardest. I finally decided a couple of weeks ago something had to change. Though I was down 20 pounds from the high I reached in 2005 I realized that I needed to a lot better than that. Wish me luck.
