Home Improvements

So, I'm going to try to chronicle the improvements we've done to our home since we moved in. It'll probably take a few blog entries because i still haven't figured out how to post more than one photo per blog entry. Maybe i should put my blog somewhere else. I continually find computer software lacking the basic features that seem to me that would make things so much easier. Blogs seem so popular, but i haven't found a sufficiently feature rich blog host. I mean, just look at Yahoo! I can't post more than one photo per blog entry, the url for my blog has a huge randomly generated key at the end, the blog actually resides one click down from the main page. Why doesn't facebook have a blog feature? If they do, why isn't it called a blog?

Christy and I went on a bike ride this evening. I hope i can build up my strengh and handle a ride like tonight better.

Texan Technology

After having dug to a depth of 1000 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 1000 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 2000 meters and shortly after headlines in the UK newspapers read:

"English archaeologists have found traces of 2000 year copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a thousand years earlier than the Scots."

One week later, Texas newspapers reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 5000 meters in West Texas, scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have therefore concluded that 5000 years ago Texas inhabitants were already using wireless technology."
