Some nice colors in the sky. Taken from our backyard.

The phone cord that is! Goodbye SBC! and good riddance. Tired of paying all that money for a phone we hardly use. We are changing our “home” phone # to be one of our cell #’s.

Don’t you hate DVD’s that have previews of other movies at the start (before you get to the menu)? I bought two DVD’s recently, Lost In Translation and The Gods Must Be Crazy. The latter is done right: after the obligatory copy warnings, the DVD takes you immediately to the menu screens. Lost In Translation was the opposite. And that sucks. Preview upon preview. I think I would pay extra in order to get a “preview-free” version of a DVD.
And why do they put that loud THX part on the kids movies? It scares the bejeezus out of them! I have to think that the Pixar DVD’s are best, because after the Disney and Pixar logos, the menu sequence starts right up. Just one more reason to love Pixar.

Mariko gave me a deadline of today to decide on at least five names for the new baby. Right now I have a group of ten, which I am adding to, then going to narrow it down a bit. After that, Mariko is going to see if they are ok for a Japanese person to pronounce, and also she will be deciding on a Japanese name. This is tough!!!

Mariko and I have been cleaning up the house, getting rid of lots of junk, and organizing Bay’s old clothes in preparation for the new baby. We still haven’t decided on a name. In fact, I have until tomorrow night to have five names picked out… In addition to getting the house ready, I am getting this site ready to put in multiple different blogs. And even a new photo site for the kids. It should be ready in a couple days. I installed pMachine 2.3, and it is working nicely.
Bay’s site hasn’t been working consistently for the past few months. I am going to try to recreate it on this main takoyaki.org site, but the old URL bay.takoyaki.org should still work. It’ll just point to the new page. I might have to recreate the old posts from scratch, unless I can figure out a way to export the old mySQL database… Aw, forget it. I’ll just do it by hand.
