About six snow plow trucks just passed us getting ready for tonight.

We're expecting an inch to an inch and a half of snow.

I guess so. I got this through my email, so I guess it's working.

What sort of water fixtures have you found effective for your reptiles?

Specifically for chameleons and bearded dragons, but any suggestions would be welcome.

I have tried some of the reptile oriented warterfalls, etc.  I have also tried the moving water cat dishes with little success.  Especially for the beardie, I am looking for something with a large basin he can soak in, but that also has moving water, so that he'll actually use it.

For the record, I'm not asking how to get them water. I do the daily misting and drip cups for the chams, and I soak the beardie regularly (and mist him, he likes that).  However, I've been trying to find something that I can install in the enclosures that can be functional and decorative, and would provided a constant source of running water.  I'm always trying to improve what I have. 

I was thinking about trying out some fish tank filtering systems, but honestly water fixtures are not my area of expertise, so I thought I'd see what other people have had success with before I go out and spend a bunch of money on something I'm probably going to mess up. :)

The bath tub! Mine get a bath once a week.

Don't forget, too much humidity is bad for beardies - respiratory infection territory.

I'm currently testing a solar panel attached to a mini pump, but my guys generally like to park their bums in their water dish, movement or not. 

I use an automated rain system for the gecko tank.

While I was in the break room, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air started playing on the TV they have in there.  In the 30-45 seconds that the theme song was playing, at least three people walked in and out of the room - each started singing the song at the exact place, and each left singing the rest of the song.

It was great.

Sometime I need to set up an experiment on the street and see how many random people react just the same way.

Can someone please tell me why and how I got the peaceful village music from FF6 stuck in my head?

Random.

Also, it's been running continuously in my head for at least an hour, but I just now really noticed.  My brain is weird.

I don't know why, but the same kind of thing happens to me. I've had Walk
of Life by Dire Straits stuck in my head repeatedly (sometimes for an hour
or more) because they keep playing it on a commercial! (We do still have it
on a single record at home.)

Sigh, I think my brain is pretty weird too...

I just went to the store and bought 4 items: a package of grapes, a single tomato, a box of popcorn, and a case of diet soda and I paid $14.00.

And every item was on sale.

Yeesh.

+Jeremy Hodges Sadly, the grapes were more expensive than the soda.  The cheapest thing was the single tomato, and not by much.

Hilarious headline of the day:

Polygamist Ninja Women Sneak Into Utah Home To Abduct 15-Year-Old Girl, Fail Miserably

Somewhat less hilarious story content, however.
Police say two women dressed from head to toe as ninjas broke into a home in an effort to abduct a 15-year-old girl, Salt Lake City Fox affiliate KSTU reports.

Does this make sense to anyone else?

I'm moving.  I will also be working from home starting this month.  My company recommended Verizon FiOS to connect into their system because (they say) it is faster.  While on the Verizon wireless site, a chat box appeared asking me if I needed any help, so I thought I'd just ask if FiOS was available at my new house.  This is what followed after giving her my new address:

"(Verizon Agent).: I see there is Comcast in your area for home services.

You: Yes there is. Does that mean verizon would not be?

(Verizon Agent): I can just see there is Comcast in your area. Verizon Fios is a separate company from us here in the Verizon chats. We partner with Comcast.

You: What? I went through Verizon's website.

(Verizon Agent): Did you go through the Verizon Residential web site?

You: I did. However I was under the impression that Verizon and Comcast are two completely different entities.

(Verizon Agent): They are."

Has anyone else encountered this?  Am I just missing something?

No, it doesn't make any sense! We wanted to try Fios too, but found out that it's not available for our address, even though a coworker of mine has it and she lives a couple of streets from me! In the same zip code, no less! We can get regular Verizon, but have had them before and weren't that happy with them.

So we're stuck with Comcast! Which, we're not happy with either, but can't do much about. No satellite either, since our condo association doesn't allow it. Sometimes I'm tempted to get rid of cable and phone all together and just have internet!

I really haven't watched any Disney animated movies in years.  In fact, I can't remember the last new one I've actually seen. 

That being said, just about every kid I know is deeply in love with Frozen.  They talk about it a lot.  (Actually, not just kids, but a lot of adults too.)  They talk about the song "Let it be" a lot too.

I've finally figured out why.

On Saturday I was in Walmart, and I decided to check out their TV prices.  They had Frozen playing on every TV on their wall.  I was only browsing in that section for all of ten seconds, but it was (I presume) right in the middle of "Let it be".  Having noted the prices of cheaper TVs, I wandered away to acquire something from the next aisle over.

Two days later, that same ten seconds of a song I don't know is still stuck in my head.

Disney is very sneaky.

Hey gold's gym, what exactly are we paying a monthly membership fee for? Maintenance of equipment, purchase of new equipment, employees salary?

Then why is another "enhancement fee" charged twice a year?

Oh yeah, greed.

I definitely do not appreciate it.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what's so appealing about drawing Disney princesses in different ways. Still, every week I see a new news story based around it on Yahoo's home page.

"See Disney princess as Disney princes." "See Disney princesses as peasants." "See Disney princess as old, fat and tired."

I don't really get the trend.

Yes, but what's the appeal of sharing these drawings on the news? :-)
