Walking billboard

How do you explain this to the grandkids after a few mergers and companies go out of business?

Why oh why do people do this to themselves? For more ugliness, go here.

I have to say, it's kind of nice when Becky picks up my camera and takes some shots. I do have to say that she's a natural at it as well, I'm sure she got that way from her Dad or Joel.

Taken in Belmar, NJ under the fishing bridge. I loved the way the sun made this pattern on the sand.

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

- 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
- 7 have been arrested for fraud
- 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
- 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
- 3 have done time for assault
- 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
- 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
- 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
- 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
- 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.


Someone's getting fired!

That little dot? Yeah, that's EARTH

This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd martian day, or sol, of its mission. The image is a mosaic of images taken by the rover's navigation camera showing a broad view of the sky, and an image taken by the rover's panoramic camera of Earth. The contrast in the panoramic camera image was increased two times to make Earth easier to see.

Crazy women!, originally uploaded by -SPK.

Today is Paige's first day of school for this year. It's also her last year in pre school. I can't believe it!

Anyway, we took some pictures today before she went off to school and this is my favorite!

It perfectly shows their personality - happy and nuts!!

To see all the shots, click on the picture and browse around the set on flickr.

Monarch: From caterpillar to a full fledged butterfly

While working in the yard, I came across this caterpillar that I had never seen before, and was really taken by the colors and the size (it was about 5 inches long).

Paige immediately named it "Stripey". Well, we placed Stripey in Paige's bug collector after I took some pictures and after dinner - we noticed that Stripey had started to make a cocoon! What do we have here????? Scmmrrrrrr.

The first picture was taken on August 26th, 2007, and the "release" happened today September 8th, 2007. 13 lucky days!
