Love this October rain

October 7, 2008

Lileks just tweeted earlier about his affinity for this sort of rain that we get in October. I wholeheartedly agree. It’s a nice contrast to the summer storms — which I also enjoy.

Also, Weather Underground rules.

Palin to “be withdrawn” as VP?

September 30, 2008

According to the Prediction Market, Intrade, the odds that Palin will “be withdrawn” as the VP candidate are rising — dramatically. Before you poo poo this, consider that this is people putting real dollars behind these “bets”, and they are often correct. Still a long shot, but not as long.

I predict this will rise on Thursday night. confirms that I kick ass.

Featured in Alltop

Got the nod from today on the GlassyEyes site. They added a “Frugality” topic and included GlassyEyes. I’m thrilled. It’s a great site.

Alltop was started by¬†Guy Kawasaki (former marketing wizard behind the Macintosh at Apple, and who wrote the most excellent book, “Art of the Start“), and a couple of his closest friends (Will Mayall and Kathryn Henkens). Lots of great topics that allow me to find the best stuff quickly. Simple idea, done right.

Check it out.

Big Think – Nice Site, Join and Post

September 18, 2008

I was perusing the Big Think site this morning and decided to contribute a little something. I’m not solving global warming or helping you to protect what’s left of your 401(k), but this is something that has really helped me over the years.

New Site:

August 23, 2008

Gave birth to a new site/blog today. It’s a site that I’ve been considering doing for well over a year. The glassyeyes site gets a lot of traffic and a small, but growing, percentage of the viewers have asked about my thoughts on contact lens retailers.

I only wear contacts for sports, but I needed some with the cold months coming — hockey anyone?

So the research began, the grid started to come to life and so did the site. I took a clean WordPress template and started beating on it to bend it to my will.

It’s called Take a look.
