To support my sunflower seed habit, I am considering selling Tee Shirts. Would you buy this for $15.00?

Yeahhhhhh!!! It's here. Come on over and slide!

Come on up to my clubhouse. Bring a snack for me, please.

I can climb up the ladder all by myself.

And lastly, an inverted photo of another spectacular Northampton County sunset.

Paige's three favorite things: White Bear, Labylubs, and Elmo!

Little Miss Kaitey, Kate, Cat, Kit-Kat Kaine

Look at that lawn! And those Kaine ladies, too.

Joel's new chariot. (It's no Ford Taurus, but I guess he can out-run Kyle Petty)

Celebrating Father's Day with the two "other" women in my life.

Paige showing off her gifts from "Gamma and Kappa"

Hey Bob! Bobcat!! Oh, sorry - this when we say goodbye to our grass for installing a brandy new swingset for the girls.

Filling up the dirt hole with shock-absorbing mulch to avoid frequent trips to the hospital.

I will be right here waiting for... Sorry, this is where the swingset will be.

A lot of things to update on the blog... First, it was Paige's second birthday on the 16th. We got her a Betta Fish. Did you have any idea that these fish need water to live? More on that later.

Kaitlyn in wonder of her big sister.

Work it Paige!

Paige and I bought a Spiderman kite the other day... since then, there has been absolutely NO WIND. Isn't that always the case?

My oldest daughter, Paige.

A rare smile from Kaitlyn for Gramma Kaine!

Reading all about Toot & Puddle from Woodcock Pocket. (yes, this is my life now and I wouldn't give it up for the world!)

A spider's view

This guy is very busy in the summer... since we have the airport just a few miles away, he seems to circle around our house... I really doubt that you could ever entice me to do this!

Update: Satellite Decision. XM or SIRIUS?

In a word: XM. (or in 2 letters)

With a whopping 1.2 million subscribers, XM leads SIRIUS by 600%. I'm not sure that actually means anything except that XM broke into the market first. For me, NASCAR pushed XM over the edge. A channel dedicated to 24 hour NASCAR racing with a second channel dedicated to in-car audio. (Sirius will have NASCAR in 2007)

I am a Howard Stern fan, but was reminded that Opie & Anthony are on XM.

Driving from Easton to Reading every day and being in the car most of the day, satellite radio was a matter of who, not a matter of if.

-Satellite boy, out.

Review: Mapopolis for the Palm Treo 600

I have had Mapopolis for my Treo 600 for about 6 months now. I bought the software and the "mouse gps" reciever for under $200 with every map in the US. I started in a new sales territorry and would have never survived without it.

What I like:
-Low Price
-Works with my Treo 600
-Prounounces the street name (don't have to look down to make sure you are turning onto the correct street)
-Integrates with my address book to search for addresses and saved GPS coordinates
-Estimated time of arrival is *impeccable*

What I dislike:
-No 5-Way navigation support
-Have to have a lot of space on your Treo
-If you have hacks on your Treo, it will crash guaranteed
-You have to have the maps for each county loaded on the card or on the unit or you are out of luck
-Maps are hard to read
-Screen is small
-Hard to make a call while using the GPS-Interface to select destination isn't easy to use

Overall rating: 7.8 out of 10 (would be lower, but the price is right)

Wedding Talk...

In 27 days it will be 3 years since Beck said "I do". Smart woman.

After Jeff posted this amazing shot over at The Thing of the Moment, I dug up some old CD's of the wedding and found this shot. It was taken on the morning of the wedding... and you can see the Margaret Todd in the background.

Being the master photo editor that he is, Jeff was able to clean up the shot he took to look like this:

A far cry from what's below... a thousand apologies for posting your crap... I mean work.

Here is some info on the Margaret Todd

Aerial View of the Bar Harbor Inn

I made a friend over at The Thing of the Moment and he shot this photo of the Bar Harbor Inn where Becky and I got married. Thanks Jeff!
