Football Cops

If I was ever going to sign up for Direct TV, it would be because of Football Cops -- I love the Manning brothers. It's so great the way they can laugh at themselves. This is a show I would watch. Watch the trailer here. (I'd embed it but it's too wide for the blog.)

Give Maytag credit...

We got new appliances and we need to give Maytag credit ... they are all wonderful. A new gas stove and microwave and dishwasher in the kitchen, and a new front-loading washer and dryer upstairs. The only issue we've had is that the selector dial on the first dryer didn't click properly -- it squeaked instead. We didn't realize initially, but called as soon as it happened. There was no hesitation -- they immediately set up an exchange to get us a new one. The new one works great, but there's a pair of deep scratched on the door to the dryer that Jeni couldn't see at first but jumped out at me because of my height. I called them today, unsure of what their response would be since we had accepted them as they were. But there was no hemming or hawing. They set up a date to come out and fix it. Now that's a week off, so let's see how the guy is who comes out. It works, and a scratch isn't the end of the world, but if it can be right, we want it to be right.

Google's so cool

I just love the Google Doodles, especially the interactive ones. I made a song!

On my watch list

I need to remember July 20 for this comic... I really don't buy comic books any more, but this was THE TEAM -- the group that started the Sandman and helped redefine comic books. That was my golden age of comics, although in comics terms it was probably a silver or bronze age. Still, I'd like to see what they put together.

ReadyMade projects

I've subscribed to ReadyMade magazine for several years now. It has its ups and downs lately, but this is a good list of projects that remind me of why I originally subscribed to the magazine.
