Kari had a work function in Puerto Rico and managed to hop over to St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. and visit Kirk and Cara.
Coincidently, her visit was just before Kirk's 40th birthday. Happy Birthday Kirk! At this moment he is celebrating on St. John with Cara friends, and I sure can't blame Kari if she wishes she were still there. Kirk zipped her around on his little boat to some choice snorkeling spots around St. Thomas and St. John. (Little did he know that a party was being set up in his honor for later.)
I finally let Simon and Henry (ages 7 and 5) watch the Star Wars movies, and unfortunately they got more hooked than expected. It's all about the light sabers, who'd a thunk? So I may be an idiot dad, but I can't help pointing out all the stupid things in Star Wars.
Here are two t.v. shows are worth watching if you are grappling with the financial shakedown, even if you don't have a t.v. The Bill Moyers interview with Simon Johnson does a good job of focusing on the big bankers and how they work with our government.
The Frontline piece is an interesting film about how the events of the last 15 months unfolded, from Bear Stearns to TARP. Amazingly, it doesn't even attempt to figure out what CAUSED this to happen. The Moyers interview provides part of that gap.
This site finally went live on Friday. It is a custom drupal site and the clients are totally empowered to add and edit content as they please.
How do you like my little bug slider? That technique is known in the business as a "carousel." These guys are cool to work with and I actually saw two separate Omega crews in my 'hood when I went for a run this morning.
