Will It Work?

Bake A Cookie?

Trader Joe's frozen cookies ready to go in the trunk. 8/24/10

It was fairly warm
Wednesday, (108), so I thought I would do a "fry eggs on the sidewalk" type of experiment I call; Baking cookies in the trunk.

I placed 2 frozen cookies to bake in the trunk on a 108 degree day.

Ummm, yummy. Hot, greasy, soft, cookies.

The experiment was less than tasty. An hour in the hot trunk produced warm lumps of dough in puddles of grease. I may never eat a baked, frozen cookie again.

A Rosy Outlook

Roses are still blooming, here at the Treehouse apartments. 8/26/10

A letter writer to the New York Times makes a good point;
"Tomatoes, Peanut Butter, Spinach, Eggs,The Gulf Oil Spill, Toyota, AIG, Goldman Sachs,Lehman Bros., Savings and Loans, Enron, World Com.,Upper Big Branch Mine, Chinese-made Drywall and Dog Food, Tylenol... Why would anyone think we need government regulations when the magic of the market is doing so well?"

The Little Things

Tiny flower in the grass behind building 'B'. 8/26/10

People with cable TV, only watch a half dozen channels on a regular basis.

The U.S. military
is the worlds number one oil consumer.

Most republican
voters believe Obama signed the T.A.R.P. legislation, (It was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008).

One out of five Americans think the sun revolves around the earth.

New Phone Feature In Gmail

Google now has phone service built into Gmail. One can call any phone in the U.S. at no cost. Calling other countries just costs a few cents.

I tried it out, and it worked really well. I found out that I was just one of millions of people who are already using this new service on Gmail.

Garie called my cell phone from her computer and that worked well too.

Neat stuff.
