Imagine a band composed entirely of ukeleles and a guitar or two. Scared yet? Now imagine that band performing rock songs. I mean hard rock songs, songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Other more soulful tunes like the "Theme from Shaft" and the catchy theme from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" are performed also. This is really scary kids, I'm not kidding this time. Actually, I found the Shaft one kinda funky and completely hilarious at the same time. Here's a select few and I'm giving it serious consideration for my next RB birthday card.

Darth Vader Is Alive And Well And Living In My Toaster

So we got this gift from a mother-in law who shall remain nameless; a "super-mega-nuclear look at me long enough and your face will melt like that guy in Raiders toaster. There was nothing wrong with our existing toaster but when she saw it on QVC, my nameless mother-in-law had one of those have to have it moments. I've nicknamed the toaster Darth Vader because regardless of the setting, it turns the bread to the dark side every time. Go »

Real Baseball

I took the girls to a minor league baseball game last night. It was Autism Awareness night at the Bowie Baysox game which was the incentive for Brenda and I to go. The girls actually enjoyed the game for the first few innings but were more interested in the foods, carousel, moon bounce and face painting. Go »
