A few tidbits

* Stopped by gary's last night and showed him Google Earth. It's the first time he's seen it and I showed him all the "ooohs and ahhhs" of the software and explained to him how everything works and why some things look the way they do.

* Renee has purchased another car. She has purchased a 2004 Dodge Durango. It looks pretty sharp and I'm sure they will be utilizing it pretty soon.

* I decided to re-upgrade to Digital Cable again. I downgraded about three years ago and thought it was about time to add a few new channels. I mananged to get a couple free months of HBO in the process too.

* The University Arts series has announced their schedule for the 2007-8 season.

  • "Annie" --Oct 14

* Nick and Terri's will have a free Jukebox on Friday, DJ Dan on Saturday, mahlon Kisner on Wed and Undercover aka Strange Brew on August 17.

* The Hillbilly Gypsies will plat 6:00-8:30 at Chestnut Ridge Park. Cost is $5.00 for general public, $3.00 for campers and children under 12 are let in free.
