I have to laugh at the Christians who believe Christmas is being taken away from them. Rather than being concerned about the war on Christmas why not celebrate it for what you believe it is about, the birth of Jesus, your savior.Christians ought to be much more concerned about the commercialization of the holiday than us evil atheist taking it away from you.

What happened to Slashdot? At one time it was the first site I visited in the morning. Now I just visit it once in a while since it has become so slow and bloated.

They used to have interesting news and even more interesting comments. Now all they show is old stories with the same old memes.

I could eat some Senapes Pitza from Hazleton, PA. Nothing beats eating that stuff straight from the box. The crust is soft and stays pretty soft even if you let it sit out overnight. My mouth is salivating for some of that stuff.I really wish I could pick some of it up here. Hope we can do a geocaching and Senapes Pitza road trip this spring

Mafia wars on Facebook is one of those things where I have to keep thinking to my self “Why didn’t I come up with that idea.”  While it seems to be dying off now a lot of people have spent a lot of money on that game.  If Zynga didn’t do such a terrible job at mishandling it I really truly believe many people would still be playing and spending a ton of cash on it.I think it was a cash cow for them and they didn’t realize what they had on their hands.  I guess it had met their short term goals but.  Instead they made it more and more spammy with more pointless popups and more busy work. They should have cashed in on people enjoying the player versus player aspect of the whole thing.  They should have also tried to control the ramped cheating.Another thing I found interesting in it is just how seriously some people took it.  It was just a click game.  It’s just sad how many people called the money they put into it an “investment” though.  Many smart people who should have known better.

Several days ago I saw someone say about a school no longer teaching cursive.  I personally think this is great!  That style of writing is nearly impossible for me to read.  I would guess it is because the letters all blend together and are not very distinct.I loathed being forced to write in it for certain clases when I was in school as I could not proof read it since I couldn’t read it.  I also couldn’t stand when certain work was given to us in the teacher’s hand writing.Then again I am very thankful that I had a large print typewriter available to me and learned to type at an early age.  Who would have guessed I’d be typing everday just for fun
