Photo-A-Day #235 11/29/05

Outboard motors again? I hate to use the subject matter two days in a row but tonight when I got to Mesquite, Texas I had dinner at Posado’s. Outside on the porch at the entrance to the restaurant I was amused to find about 15 outboard motors lined up as decorations. I really don’t know what outboard motors and mexican food have in common but It made for another interesting picture.

So today I drove from Camden, Arkansas to Mesquite, Texas. I made a stop in Texarkana at Doolin’s Harley Davidson and picked up some pins and a children’s book called “Why Grandpa Rides a Harley.” A good little book. We’ll be adding it to the books for grandkids that my mom has been collecting.

I was looking at a 5 hour ride through a part of the country that seems to have no radio stations whatsoever. On the ride from the hotel to the hospital today the seek button just spun through the dial. So I picked up a book on CD at Wal-Mart. And what I found was Eragon on CD. 14 hours of a fantastic book. I would reccommend this series. It is great so far.

These are some lights on the side of the Flying Fish, a restaurant in Little Rock, AR. It took me all day to get here but I am now here and ready to get up at 5:00am to drive to the site to demo tomorrow.

I spent most of the day in Chicago O’Hare airport as my flight was delayed again and again. I finished Book Six of the Incarnations of Immortality by Piers Anthony called For Love of Evil. A pretty good book in the series.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Posted by BenSpark on November 27, 2005

Tonight Allison and I saw the 4th Harry Potter Book turned into a major movie. We saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I have to say that this movie was my favorite of the bunch. I would gladly see it again, maybe in IMAX. The action was more intense and the kids are certainly coming into their own as actors. They are living the characters in each movie. I can’t wait to see how they tackle Book 5. Great Movie. Go see it.

We received our wedding photos today from Cullen Jones. We met him at the Cracker Barrel off 133 on our way home from New Hampshire. He gave us a proof book with about 400 printed photos plus 3 CD’s with over 700 photos. The photos came out great. I’ve uploaded all photos that we have received from various sources to Kodak Gallery (well, I am in the middle of uploading all of them, over 1 1/2 gigs of photos. Yikes!). If you are looking for a wedding photographer we highly recommend Cullen Jones.

"Karate Kid" actor Pat Morita dies – Yahoo! News

Posted by BenSpark on November 26, 2005

“Karate Kid” actor Pat Morita dies – Yahoo! News: “Mr. Miyagi” is gone. I am very sad. He was a wonderful actor and comedian. The 80’s was better because of him and the Karate Kid. I’ll even forgive the Next Karate Kid. And as Arnold on Happy Days. Bye Pat.

Tonight Allison and I went to her 9 year high school reunion. Yeah 9 year because someone on the reunion committee cannot count. Anyway it was held at the Manchester Historic Association Millyard Museum. What a very interesting place for a reunion. Not sure I would have had a 10 year reunion from High School there maybe a 20 but people were pretty respectful to the museum none the less. We had a very nice night. I got to meet alot of Allison’s high school friends and the snacks were good. Lots of chocolate covered strawberries and one cannot have enough of those. These are the stairs down to the museum. I though that they were pretty interesting.

JCB

Posted by BenSpark on November 24, 2005

I have just discovered a great song and flash video called JCB. The band is an acoustic duo called Nizlopi and man what a great song. The video features an appearance by Optimus Prime but don’t worry not a transformers song or anything. It is a very touching song about a boy and his father. Just a fantastic song. I’ll be featuring JCB on myspace as soon as Nizlopi adds me as a friend. Check out the video it is worth a listen.
