Our company recently had vendor discount fair where employees could go and look over and potentially buy items for Christmas or whatever. They had numerous drawings for items that included a Blackberry Storm, Zune Player, Blu-Ray Player, Dell Laptop, Gift certificates, etc. Well, look what our good friend Thomas, scored.... A Spud Tote bag!!! Good win, Thomas!! Be sure to congratulate him when you see him.

Had a family outing at the Cheesecake factory and ran into this. It is hard to see in my crappy picture but the guy standing to the left is some sort of a security guard. There is another one as well standing near the center behind a pole (click on the picture to see it better). They were in suits, Sunglasses and Earphones. They were watching a large group of people at the same time we were there. They just stood there and were constantly surveying the area. One of the female guests got up and went to the rest room and one of them followed and the other security guard took the other guards place. No one and I mean NO ONE knew who these people were. The servers asked and would not get a response. Based on rumors and other gawkers, it came down to two things.... Someone thought that one of the guests was an actress in Twilight. The other guess (The one I beleive) is that this is some joke. If no one knows who these people are then they probably don't need body guards. Cheesy.

We later found each other back by the camp-site.
We name these trails on our own. It is the only way we can keep track of where we are going. It works well until you run into others out there and they have no clue what you are talking about. Example.... We were talking with some guys who were talking about a trail called crossover. After considerable discussion on where that was, we discovered it was our version of Petey.
In addition, because of active logging, one day we can can be riding some great trails and the next day, it is completely gone. Rest in Peace Rooty, Rutty, Routey, and Dead-End.
Proud of my sister and embarrassed that I am so lazy. My sister, Leta ran the Seattle Marathon on Sunday. She came in 12th for her age division! She tells me this "I didn't have a great day but I can't complain too much. I started well but hit the "wall" really early -- at about mile 10". Well, Leta, your brother gets tired running out of gas for his truck! You claim that you ran 24 minutes slower than you wanted but your brother is definately impressed and proud!! Well done, moo-moo cow! (inside joke).
