Aaron and Buddy

Aaron got to take Buddy (Elmo's dad?) home from school for the week. He was so excited - he was literally jumping up and down the day he brought it home. The night before he had to give it back to his teacher so Buddy could go to the next kid's house for the week, he put this together to include in Buddy's traveling journal. It really makes you realize how easy it is to make a kid happy.

A Blog, Now? Really?

I didn't plan to create a blog today. I was at work trying to open a new document in Office 2007 and it kept asking me if I wanted to create a blog post. So, I took the hint, and decided to see what all this blogging stuff is all about after all. And, so far, it's pretty cool.

Now, the problem with blogs, as far as I can tell, is that unless other people actually visit your blog and comment, it is really just you and your computer. And, frankly, I have better things to do with my time than spend it with a computer (like knitting socks for example). But, I thought I would give this a try and see how it goes. If people visit the blog, and it means more time communicating with friends and family, then cool. Otherwise, the posts may be few and far between. We'll just have to see.

So, here is the interesting tidbit for the day: I just found out that the brother of a coworker of mine won Survivor 13. How's that for a "6 degrees from Kevin Bacon" kind of thing?
