I'm over at the new (new) Rocket Jones.

I didn't start over, just moved the whole kit-and-kaboodle over to a more spam-resistant platform. Please adjust your links accordingly. Thanks.

Oooooh. Ahhhhhh.

Nic got some great photos of the fireworks this weekend.  Not Independence Day, *everyone* does fireworks then.  These are from July 5th, at the baseball game.  Check out her album too.

Cloning Hair as a Cure for Baldness

So now they can clone one's own hair in order to cure baldness.  Why stop there?  I predict that in the near future, you'll notice more werewolves attending Halloween parties.

Mee Moving Into Nu Digs

Ok, many suggested alternatives to abandoning blogging on Rocket Jones. Ultimately, you are all wiser than I, because I found that it really bugged me to just up and walk away.

Pixy has set me up over at the new Minx-based Rocket Jones. I believe that your links will be fine as is, because the "old" domain will get redirected to the new one in the near future. Pixy is kind and does nifty things like that, and although it is now literally possible, I really don't want to have his babies, but I am extremely grateful for what he does.

I am in a transitional phase in my life at this time, so I think I'm going to get back to basics: Rockets, movies, a little introspection and storytelling and humor. I think I'm excited about writing here again, because it took me a while to figure out exactly what my priorities were, and how to best satisfy them.

So use the link above to get to the new place (which make you laugh look away in embarrassment marvel in awe at my wicked CSS artistry. And one day soon, the "old" link to Rocket Jones will automagically take you to the new gingerbread house in the woods.

Knots

Knowing how to tie the right knot for a given application is important. Learning to tie a knot from a book can be frustrating as all git out.

Try this instead.

Thanks to Random Nuclear Strikes for the pointer.

Psst. They show how to tie neckties too.

Software Recommendation

A few weeks ago I bought a copy of Evernote.

If you're like me, you're often jotting down URL's or notes about this and that that you come across online. What Evernote does is automate that process, allowing you to select text, snippets of spreadsheets, email, entire screen prints, and much more to an electronic notepad. Plus, you can do it instantly because Evernote puts a button on your browser bar, making it as simple as select and click.

The real power comes in the application itself, because you can easily sort and organize in all kinds of useful ways. The search function is awesome too.

I'm not going to give an in-depth review or run down all of the features, and this isn't a sales pitch, but I do recommend checking out their website and watching the demo (flash). Evernote has been well worth the money (inexpensive and great value), and if you could use its capabilities then I think you'd like it.

'Nother New Bunny

A while back I mentioned Butterscotch, a doe we were trying to bond to our single buck Ozzie. Didn't work. The two were fine together, as long as some sort of barrier was between them, but as soon as the barrier was gone, the fur started flying. Apparently grudges are long held in the rabbit world, so there was no chance of changing anyone's mind about the other, let alone reconciliation.

Today I took Butterscotch back to the rescue. She was a sweet bunny, very loving and gentle, and being realistic I think the problem was Ozzie. But sometimes that's how it works out.

I came back with a little doe named Midnight, and we'll try again for a few weeks. If this doesn't work out, we'll see about other options (there are several). Cross your fingers, because even with all the rabbit's feet in the house, we need all the luck we can get.

The rabbit rescue we work with is Bunny Lu. Give 'em a visit and hit their donation jar if you feel so inclined.

Braille Flag

This is inspiring.

Jesus Sanchez Cabral flew his flag until he could no longer see it.

A decorated veteran, he never liked to display his World War II medals. That was showing off.

But the flag was another matter. He hung it on his Hutchinson, Kan., porch every Memorial Day, every Flag Day, every Fourth of July, every holiday.

It was a tradition he kept up until glaucoma blinded him. After that, his flag flew no more. When he died 10 years ago at the age of 82, his wife said it was too bad that he couldn’t see the flag in his final years.


And his son did something about that, designing an American flag for the blind. It describes the colors, the thirteen stripes and fifty stars, and also contains The Pledge of Allegiance.

Over 5,000 of these flags have been distributed to blind veterans, including many who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Next month, a bronze version will be delivered to Arlington National Cemetery for permanent display.

You're Never Really Blessed Without A Smile

Elisson posted a picture, a picture of the kind I've been searching for for... well, quite some time (almost said "forever"). Tacky, kistchy, it'll make you go "Christ Almighty!" in rapturous awe and wonder.

Not very practical though, and that's where I come in. Add a splash of evil genius mixed with a mad dazzle of my photoshop skills, and... ego? No thanks, I already have one.

Click here to see the Rocket Jones version and it'll open in a new window.

Didja smile? Pray for me.

I have got to get that Cafe Press store up and running.
