Mac OS X Leopard: Parental Controls

Think Secret has a bunch of screen shots of the new Mac OS X due out Spring 2007. They plan to add parental controls, and they look very good, and easy to setup. Another reason for considering the Mac for the family room! You can restrict applications, of course, but also times when the kids can actually use the computer. See for yourself.

Search Music Lyrics!

Many thanks to for switching me onto a song I heard a few years ago, never knew who did it, but always wanted it in my collection. I found a very cool site that allowed searching lyrics, instead of just the song title and artist. I place the lyrics I knew, searched for them in a phrase (all together), and Viola! The song is Hella Good by No Doubt! Now I can "Keep on Dancing"....

MatwellWorld - Republicans Will Win!

Seems that the Matwellworld blog is not alone in the idea that the Republicans will win the upcoming election. Major Republican leaders are becoming more confident, polls are showing strength going towards the Republicans, and the Liberal Media hounds are starting to call the so called "slam dunk election for Democrats", now a highly contested and very close race. I can recall in 2000 and 2004 when they said just this very thing. America can not afford to leave the War on Terror in Iraq, and most of America knows this. It is a just war, and simply hating Bush doesn't count enough to sell out the Iraqi people and our future.

Cardinals Win World Series, 4-1

To the surprise of many, the St Louis Cardinals Won the World Series over the Detroit Tigers! They played very well, made both brilliant defensive moves, and their offense was timely. It was a pleasure to watch, and the St Louis Cardinals really deserve the Win. Congrats!

For the Kids, check out the Kids Club for Games and info for the younger ball fans.

Movie Event - Conversations With God!

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD opens in theaters this coming Friday, October 27, 2006. I recommend that you go see the film. More films like this should be released in theaters and the best way for us to tell filmmakers is to show up and buy a ticket! Together we can show the movie studios and the liberal media that we will turn out to see a movie about love and compassion, not the routine Hollywood formula of fear and violence.

WWE Films: The Marine

Went to see this movie, and to my utter surprise, it was fantastic! The Marine is a well written inspirational, and action packed flick. It gives a positive message, and quenches the action gene we may have for car chases and machine gun fire. John Cena, the WWE World Pro Wrestling Champ, has some great skills as an action actor, and parallels or betters Sylvester Stallone in just about any of his films. I highly recommend this one for a fun afternoon at the movies! I give it 4 1/2 of 5 stars!

Drudge Says: Rove says GOP will keep House and Senate

Latest news from Drudge Report about the upcoming election:

White House political strategist Karl Rove tells editors and reporters at THE WASHINGTON TIMES: 'I'm confident we're going to keep the Senate; I'm confident we're going to keep the House. The Foley matter has impact in some limited districts, but the research we have shows that people are differentiating between a vote for their congressman and a member from Florida.' MORE...

'It is useful to remind people what [Democrats] said and what they do. I think they have given us here, especially in the last couple of weeks, a potent set of votes to talk about. You had 90 percent of House Democrats voting against the terrorist-surveillance program, nearly three-quarters of Senate Democrats and 80 percent of House Democrats voting against the terrorist-interrogation act. Something is fundamentally flawed.' DEVELOPING...

I think whatever happens, vote with your heart and mind, not based on what you hear or read in the media! When it comes to Foley... Ever notice that Republicans resign when they do bonehead moves, and Dems deny everything to stay in office?

US Geography Quiz

This Flash Game animation was sent to me as a joke... Then I got to wondering, how many of us could complete it? The premise is that to get to the 4th grade, you need to place all 50 states in their respective positions in a minute or so. I played a few times, and was just not fast enough. My highest score so far was 45. I stay in the 3rd grade. I will keep playing until I get 50! Glad they didn't ask for the Capitol of each state!

Teen Lands Job For $250,000 Playing Video Games!

I can recall when my parents used to say, "You won't amount to anything by playing all those games (or watching TV). Well Tom Taylor has proven everyone wrong. He has landed a $250,000 job playing video games. Tom dropped out of high school a few months back to play games. He wanted to hone his skills, and BOY did he ever! If you see Tsquared, which is his handle/alias, congratulate him. I love the quote, "I guess some people are just born with talents in certain things," he says, "like Michael Jordan was born to play basketball. I feel like I was born to play video games." Amen Brother!

Wal-Mart Across America

Can't visit every Wal-Mart across America, now you don't have to!

Laura, Jim and their RV, Wally1, are rolling across America without spending a single cent on hotels. Like thousands of RVers do every year, they are spending their nights at Wal-Mart parking lots completely free. The best part is they’re keeping an online journal of their adventures. Check it out at
