AZ Sunset (dang I shoot nice mobile pics)

Thought I would share this sweet sunset we had in in Arizona yesterday. This picture was taken on my G1 Android phone, traveling west (sunset... duh) on the 202, while driving approximately 67 mph. Yep it is an awesome pic, I know. I will turn it into an iGoogle theme and post the link so you all can enjoy it everyday. Feel free to download the full version from my picasa web album titled Android. ;)

Wanted: Substitute Wife

Last week my wife decided to hit me with 2 bombshells. First, she tells me that her mom is dropping off their dogs, or perhaps more apporpriatley named, the dog-in-laws, and they will be joining our already K9 infested home. This highly appreciated little agreement brings the grand total of of dogs in this house to 8, yes 8 dogs... which I will gladly break down for you now: 5- Pugs 1- Lab 1- English Bulldog 1- Shih Tzu (Lab not pictured, obviously) So far things are not going well. The Shih Tzu barks... all the damn time, which sucks, but it is an improvement from it's last visit which included rolling in shit and rubbing it all over the house and furniture (PS the Shih Tzu's name is Snuggles, yet I refuse to snuggle anything that is covered in poop). The bulldog, well I actually like the Bulldog, or at least I used to. He would be great if he quit trying to eat the Pugs. The twins hate him and refuse to play any of his bulldog games, instead they just tag team him until he…

What's in a name?

Let me preface that this will be one of my tech-ier/ish posts, so some of you (you know who you are) may go ahead and tune out right now.

What to do...
When I first started this blog I also had a website. The website and the blog were both called "Tenkely.Net", and things were pretty confusing. On a whim, I changed the name of the blog to Dolphin Free but left the mapping at the original domain. Eventually I decided I wanted to focus my effort on the blog (Google was killing Google Page Creator anyway) and I eventually took the website down.

Here is where I am at now, and why I am asking for some feedback. What is in a name? Should the name match the title here? If so which direction should I choose? There are a couple obvious choices, I could just leave things alone, keep the name and the domain as they are now, or I could match them, either with a dolphin free domain or by changing the blog name to Tenkely.Net. Heck, I could even change the name to…

Stinky Finger

A professor is giving the first year medical students their first lecture on autopsies, and decides to give them a few basics before starting. "You must be capable of two things to do an autopsy. The first thing is that you must have no sense of fear." At this point, the lecturer sticks his finger into the dead man's anus, and then licks it. He asks all the students to do the same thing with the corpses in front of them. After a couple of minutes silence, they follow suit. "The second thing is that you must have an acute sense of observation: I stuck my middle finger into the corpse's anus, but I licked my index. Joke courtesy of (check em out)

Soda Challenge 09 - Results

July 1st marked the end of my 30 day soda Challenge, and I absolutely freaking dominated it. It was actually incredibly easy to do, but there are some items I wish to discuss. First of all, seeing as how Traci decided Red Bull counts as soda, I had to switch up my AM energy supplement routine (by AM supplement routine I mean drinking Monster's in the shower). I tried this drink called Verve. This stuff sucks. It is the grittiest stuff I have ever drank, it felt like I was drinking a glass of beach sand. Second, guess what doesn't count as soda... milkshakes. Most of the meals I ate substituted a milkshake for soda... pretty sweet, right? That last bit probably helps explain why I weighed in at 215 when we started this thing and my ending weight was 214. Never the less, I am officially declaring that the Soda Challenge is an ineffective way to loose weight, but more importantly it is a very effective way to increase you milkshake consumption. So I had just beaten the Soda Chall…
