President Obama Travels To Boulder, Colorado To Get Photo Taken With Famous Shortarmguy Hand Print

Last August, my buddy Ron and I traveled to Colorado to see Krazy Kory who was living there at the time.  You can read about the trip HERE.

While there, we stopped in at a bar called the Sink in Boulder, Colorado.  

Apparently the tradition at the bar is to have people "Sign the Ceiling".  There's a lot of signatures up there.

Since I was in Rome, I felt I should do as the Romans do and I signed the ceiling by tracing my hand on it.  I added the white arrow above so you can see exactly where it is.  Note the Large P in the photo because it will help you identify the location of my hand print in the next photo.

Apparently, my hand print has become quite popular for people to see.  I didn't realize this until I just read that even President Obama traveled to the bar  to see it and pose for pictures in front of it with some friends yesterday.  Note that he's standing almost directly under the P I mentioned earlier in this story.

I just read on Yahoo, that this picture of Obama and another friend of his has even gone viral and people from all over are checking it out.  

I guess I don't see what the big deal is.  

I mean if he's that into it, I'd be happy to come to the white house and trace my hand on the ceiling of the Oval Office or the Lincoln Bedroom or something.

Understanding Engineers

Understanding Engineers #1
Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."

Understanding Engineers #2
To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Understanding Engineers #3
A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!" The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!" The priest said, "Here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have a word with him." He said, "Hello George, What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The greens-keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime!." The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything she can do for them." The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

Understanding Engineers #4
What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers? Mechanical engineers build weapons. Civil engineers build targets.

Understanding Engineers #5
The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?" The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?" The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"

Understanding Engineers #6
Three engineering students were gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body. One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints." Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections." The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"

Osprey -- An Incredible Predator

I've never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does - wouldn't want to get in the way of him when he's got his eyes locked and his talons in the "load" position!

There are 3 sequences in this one video:

1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.

2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to
grab his prey.

3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs
more than he does!

This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)...enjoy!

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking


A message every adult should read because children 
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my 
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately 
wanted to paint another one. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed the 
birds in winter, and I learned that it was good to be kind 
to animals. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my 
favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little 
things can be the special things in life. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a 
prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always 
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a 
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I 
learned that we all have to help take care of each other. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care 
of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have 
to take care of what we are given. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you 
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't 
feel good, and I learned that I would have to be 
responsible when I grow up. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hold 
the door open for others and heard 'thank you' and 
'you're welcome', and I learned respect for others. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come 
from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things 
hurt, but it's all right to cry. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you 
cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of 
life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and 
productive person when I grow up. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and 
wanted to say,’ Thanks for all the things I saw when 
you thought I wasn't looking.'
