Spring has Sprung

This is part of my backyard. I just thought I would share some pics, these were taken last week and all the dirt spots next to the flowers are now filled in with really pretty flowers. I would have posted newer pics but the wife let the batteries die on the camera. We just bought our house last November and were blessed with a truly wonderful garden that neither my wife or I know how to care for. I hope you enjoy these pictures cause we tend to kill any and all living plants in our sight. I think just our looking at plants creates some sort of salt in the air that eventually rains down and destroys stuff.

I cant wait, I have purchased a new scoot, so my avatar will be changing soon. It is Silver and the assholes wont let me pic it up untill FRIDAY.(DAMN!!!!) Im keeping my old scoot for the time being, but it will most likely end up being covered with a blanket and sitting in a corner of the shop. This is kinda sad.

Today...My Tribute to BRAK

This is Brak. He is who I think I most resemble when it comes to cartoon characters. He originated on Space Ghost in the 60's, and was brought back to life by Andy Merill for Space Ghost Coast to Coast and then was given his own show, only to be canceled about 2 years ago.
So everybody, here is my salute to the funniest cartoon ever created.
Feel free to tell me who your favorite cartoon is, I promise I wont make fun of you.

On Sunday, the wife and I went swing dancing for the first time.
We printed T-shirts for a group called PDX LINDY EXCHANGE, and they were hosting
a nationwide swing dance festival over the weekend.
They gave us a set of comp tickets to the event wich included an hour long lesson and
a 20 piece swing band, hosted at the Crystal Ballroom.

Crystal Ballroom

I am such a bad dancer its not even funny. I play music but I have never tried moving to it before. We started off my wife and I dancing together. Then they made us switch partners about 20 times. I was so nervous when we had to this because we had to be paired up with all skill levels. I tried to make small talk, to make up for my lack of grace, but I'm pretty sure they all saw through it. However I did not step on anyones toes, I was looking at my feet the whole time. I would forget to listen to the beat and get completely out o time. I was also embarassed because a couple of swingers wore busty dresses and since I was looking at my feet it was mistaken for a glance at their chests more then once. Not that I wouldn't occasionally peek at that, its just when your face to face, its not proper dance etiquette. Over all it was a great time and the band was awesome. I believe Im going to continue my swing dance career and get a little more practice before I go to another event.

Jane do you know this guy??

Australian man rescued from washing machine.
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — A man had to be rescued after becoming wedged in a washing machine while playing a game with his children, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
A fire officer pulled Robin Toom, 38, out of the machine after Toom became trapped while playing hide-and-seek, according to Sydney's Daily Telegraph.
"I just hopped in there and couldn't even get the lid down and the kids came in and said, 'Ha, ha! We found you,'" Toom told the newspaper.
Toom, of the Queensland city of Townsville, waited for an hour with his knees pressed to his chest before being rescued by local fire squad member Dave Dillon, the paper reported.
Rather than dismantling the washer, Dillon reached into the machine and pulled out Toom's wedged foot.
Toom said he planned to change the rules of hide-and-seek for his children.
"I hope they don't go hiding in any washing machines now," he said.
