Fact-check Friday! It's the census...

Confused about the Census? I was a little too, until I got mine in the mail a week ago. I happily filled it out and I think of it like I do my right to vote. Some don't see it that way. Luckily the folks at factcheck.org help clear things up.

Something new to wear...

Like the new look? I thought I would update the theme just in time for March Madness! What is March Madness you ask? Well it is one of the most exciting times in College sports... strike that! ...the most exciting times in ALL OF SPORTS! Different from college football where teams go where they are picked to go, even if they have lost a quarter of their games; NCAA basketball takes all the conference champions and then the teams deemed top performers. March Madness has been a part of my life since I was a boy. I remember going to the first and second round games when the tournement came to Boise. When the teams come, on their off day the practices are open to the public. When I was a senior in high school (1992) I remember coming to the Boise State Pavilion (that's the name I'll always call it! Sorry Taco Bell) and watching the teams practice. Here are the teams that played:

  • Georgetown
  • South Florida
  • Florida St.
  • Montana
  • Indiana
  • LSU
  • BYU
  • Eastern Illinois
The winners from that year are not important. What is important are who was part of those teams. Indiana was coached by Bob Knight and Shaquille O'Neal  played for LSU. Both pretty big names in basketball. Well, on the off day my friends and I went over to watch Indiana practice and on our way out of the Pavilion there was this very large basketball player signing autographs out in the foyer by the outside doors. It was Shaquille O'Neal. We walked right by him on our way out. What I can remember is that he was tall! 7'1'' is pretty tall. 

So when March Madness comes around I get pretty excited even if the Boise State Broncos aren't playing in the tournament.

Rental? or by mail?

Netflix? They have been around a while. I just found out the company was founded the same year Tammy and I got married, 1997. Over the years we have been in and out with Netflix. We always ran out of movies that we wanted to see, then we would cancel our membership. An email would come offering a  free trial so we'd sign up and then work though the list of movies that we wanted to see then find ourselves not using it. But now things have changed. They offer streaming over the internet. So you can watch a selection of movies and TV programs online. And soon you'll be able to watch then on the Wii (since we don't have an Xbox or PS3). We have really liked this part of a Netflix membership. The kids have liked it also. They can find programs that we would never rent and stream them.

How long will we stay with Netflix... I can't say. But we are definitely getting our money's worth this time!

Has it sprung?

Spring here? It sure feels like it. It's hard to believe that March is barely here and the weather is no nice. It makes it difficult to work inside. These are times when I envy people that work outdoors. Hopefully it'll stay this nice for the weekend!

Here is a view from the back of my office from Friday. Look at the blue sky!
