Some words about the sibling

To those who don't know, I have one sister. She's currently going to college waaaaaaaaaaay far away in St. Kitts. She hates the far away part because of the physical distance from family and friends, but she'll be visiting soon which is cool.

We spoke on the phone tonight. Although I can't get into details what it was about, I can say that she's awesome concerning family matters. She's the one who can get things done where they need to be when I can't for whatever reason.

Maria and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things. I think she's too emotional. She thinks I'm not emotional enough. Yin this. Yang that. It happens. However, when crunch time hits as far as the family is concerned, the team comes together. Crunch time will be hitting soon, and the team's ready.

***Guitar deals & steals? Where? Right here. Price drops, B-stock and tons more.

Heard at a local four-way stop

Today while at a four-way stop, the light turned green for traffic not on my side of the light. An old man and his wife in a small blue Toyota Celica just sat there at the front of the line.

5 seconds go by...

10 seconds...

20 seconds...

The guy in a rat-trap primer gray Ford Thunderbird behind them starts blaring his horn..

"C'mon! MOVE! F--kin' get out of the way!" BEEEEEEEP BEE BEE BEEEEEEP!

The blue Celica slowly starts to move away with the old man cursing and waving his hands. The windows are closed.

The windows on the Thunderbird however, are open.

"F--kin' old guy, MOVE! Let's go!" BEE BEE BEEEEEP!

I laughed. I have no sympathy to those who don't pay attention to traffic lights - young or old.

Garmin StreetPilot i3 update

GPSExplorer.com called me today (as they said they would, very nice of them), and I should have my i3 on Monday. YES! It took a while but I'll finally be getting it. I was informed it will be shipped out of New York.

I've noticed several people have come to my web site looking for a review of the i3. If you happen to be one of those people, Garmin just started shipping them (remember, it's a brand new model just released). Reviewers and normal folk like myself will get our hot little hands on them very shortly. I will be writing my review for it as soon as I get mine.
