FROM THE VAULT

I thought I would dig deep into my picture collection to see what interesting photos I could pull out. I think these from Michael's 50th birthday party fit the bill very nicely... Enjoy!

Calling all gamblers. I just found out there's a casino in Charles Town, West Virginia which is only about an hour from here. So if you're up for some gambling, come down for a visit and check out this link on Charles Town Casino.

I think this is 4 days in a row of updating my blog. Of course I'm cheating a little. I just updated it before midnight so that counted for Sunday and now I'm updating it shortly after midnight and this will count for Monday. I added some new pictures of the house at my shutterfly gallery. Just click the shutterfly logo below.

Irish Parade

We went to an Irish parade in Alexandria, Virginia which is just outside DC. What could be more Irish than the Notre Dame band. Well it wasn't the current fighting Irish band but instead members of the Alumni band. Watch the video below. The day got a little strange when we went to eat lunch later in the day. See below.

Autumn had fun at the parade although it took her a while to figure out what exactly it was she liked.

We were sitting down eating when this lady seen here playing the crane game came up and gave Autumn a stuffed bunny. After she won that one, she went back to try and win more. When she was unsuccessful she went to her car for more Toys for Dean. Although his choice was either a Glinda good witch of the north doll, or a rat ring. It was very bizarre, but the lady was very nice, maybe a little too nice. My paranoia was starting to kick in, I was starting to think she was either going to ask us to join her cult or follow us home and rob us. She talked to us for 15 minutes or so and told us about all the great outlet shopping places around. Does anyone need a shopping partner, I can hook you up. It was interesting to say the least.






Dean, would you like some fries with your ketchup?

The Saltworth Sundries

My friend Jarrod from College has a new band in Austin Texas called "The Saltworth Sundries." He plays Banjo and sings. Here's a picture of them playing live.



Clicking their logo below will take you to their myspace page where you can check out a few of their songs. My favorite song of theirs is Last Known Photo. Tell me what YOU like.

Google Trip

My station is partnering with Google for a Virginia Governor's debate in June. We took a trip over to the Washington DC Google office to go over the details. It was like going to Disneyland. They have catered lunches every day, they have a playroom with a foosball and ping pong table, and also video games like the Wii and Playstation 3. I'm not sure anyone there ever works, but it sure looked like fun. This first picture is the lobby.



This next picture is a graphical representation of all the google searches going on at the current moment. It was a spinning globe with colored dots that corresponded to the language of the search. It was much cooler than this picture shows.




See what I mean about the office being like Disneyland. It was very colorful, very playful, and very bright.
