It is June 1, 2009 and a new record has been set. It has been over a year since Kris wrote anything on his blog. Maybe he is going for every two years now.

God has richly blessed you because of your faith Kris.
You're an inspiration to all of us.
It was great to finally have lunch with you buddy.

See you Sunday! Say hi to Mary and the kids for us.

I was wondering if the fish were ever coming back. Cool!

I'm actually a little excited that you've set up one of your aquariums again. And I don't even like fish...

By the way, I just read your last post. That is very encouraging.

In response to: A Brand New Year

Becky [Visitor]
I'm excited about this year too, Kris. At the end of last year I told Bobby I had this feeling like something good is about to happen. I can't explain it except that it was just this notion that come over me out of the blue...wasn't thinking about 2007 or anything in particular. Just doing household chores and there it was ...something good is about to happen.

I'm with you, Kris. This year is going to be a great year. I, too, have been looking forward to 2007, though not for any conscious reason. I do remember at least a couple of times last year thinking we were already in 2007 or wanting to write it on a check or whatever. That's cool.

You should put a page on the website of the bloopers. Those are funny!

In response to: Laugh Break Upgrade

Keith [Visitor]
All Right!! I've always loved Laugh Break, but I haven't gone in a very long time because it's never updated. I used to tell a lot of other people about it too, but since I never check it out I never think to tell people. I'll have to start checking it again, and I'll pass on the word.

In response to: Portable Apps

Travis [Visitor]
That's pretty sweet. I wonder, though, how hard is it to patch the applications? Or do you just replace them when a newer version comes out? Regardless, I like the idea. I also like the fact that you can sing Portable Apps to the tune of "Silver and Gold" from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and it sounds cool.

Yes, I do get paid for clicks, but no, I don't want you to do that regularly. Google monitors the "click" activity closely to watch for patterns that would indicate fraud (such as the same person clicking a bunch of ads on one particular site). Doing something like that could actually end up costing me money or getting my account shut down.

If you see an ad that actually interests you, then that's one thing, but please don't click the ads just to make me money.

I appreciate the willingness to help, though.

Well, Travis wasn't the only Laugh Break reader. Besides hearing the anecdotes because Travis would read it to me incessantly at home but I'd also check it out myself when I was bored at work :)

I'm glad to hear it's back on track because it's nice to read funny stuff without it being raunchy.

That's funny - I usually don't write much "computer/web gobbledy gook" because I assume that most people who bother to check my blog aren't interested. Maybe I'll start writing more of that.

That's exciting. I was never a Laugh Break reader. I don't like laughing. But, maybe I'll have to try it out. And, surprisingly, I find all of the computer/web gobbledy gook you wrote very interesting. Weird.

P.S. I hope you're feeling better very soon

I use Firefox- same problem. My suggestion: use he "Remember Me" feature and don't ever worry about it. :-)

Stitching together? I bet I've got that in Adobe Elements, which, frankly, I haven't really used yet. I really need to sit through the tutorial.

Kris [Member]
Yeah, the problem is, it's not supposed to be yellow - IE makes it yellow to identify it as a field it has memorized entries for as a part of its "autocomplete" feature. I just don't know if there's a way for me to override it.

Thanks, Tisra. I got some nighttime skyline shots from across the bay (in Sausalito) that I need to work on stitching together into a panoramic photo. They're a little blurry, though, because I didn't take my tripod.

I had the problem before with the name and e-mail fields. Its not really invisible, but just that the box is yellow and the type is white; at the wrong angle, or at the wrong monitor setting you simply can't see it. (if you highlight that box, you'll see that type really is there)

Kris, you got really great photographs while in San Fran. I especially like your night shots.

Mom - that's a problem that someone identified before, but I keep forgetting about it because it only happens in Internet Explorer, and I use Firefox for web browsing. I'll take a look and see if I can fix it.

Amy - it really is a cool city. I've been once before but it was also a business trip and I didn't really get to see all that much. I did make sure to tour Alcatraz, though, which was very interesting.

Congrats on the office! Have you looked at the Haverty's warehouse in Murfreesboro? I haven't been there but I always intend to go. Rhodes used to have a warehouse there too and Travis worked there for a day and said that the stuff they had was nice but had some minor flaws but were pretty good deals. Anyway, it's just a thought.

Have fun in Boston, the weather should be pretty nice this time of year.

Interesting - that only seems to happen with Internet Explorer. It works fine in Firefox.

OK, one thing on the comments...

When I'm typing a comment if the sentence is too long it continues typing but doesn't go to the next line immediately. I can type two words before it goes to the next line- depending on word size of course. So I have to hit the preview button to accurately see what I've typed. For instance the comment box looks like this to me- abbreviated to the end of the sentence.

...too long it conti
...I can type two wo

I hope I've been concise enough. If not just type a really long comment to yourself and you'll see what I mean.

Yay, a post! Travis mentioned that something today was blog worthy and I tried to get him to blog about it but he won't. If he can't do something perfectly he won't do it at all- even blogging.

Good news about the SS class and we had a great time at the playground yesterday.

I guess as long as the cert. hours never expire, you could chunk away at it as able, considering both time and budget. Very exciting.

It's good for many different types - including Cesnas, which are very common (that's what my co-worker is training in). It is somewhat expensive - around $100 per hour for the plane, fuel, and instructor. I could probably get a Sport Pilot certificate for around $3k, or a full Private Pilot certificate for about $6k. I will probably start with the Sport Pilot certificate because the training for that can count towards the Private cert. The only problem right now is that Sport Pilot is fairly new, so not many instructors are set up to do that.

Good to see an update from you. What type of aircraft is the student pilot certificate good for and what is your end goal? My friend, Heather, at one point took flying lessons in a Cesna (I think). I seem to remember her getting it as a gift, as they were rather pricey.
