You know that Facebook is beginning to go the way of MySpace when every time you want to make a comment, you have to enter a captcha phrase. Yes, it is true. Today, I entered my first-ever captcha phrase on Facebook. Bad news I say. That's why my entrepreneurial mind is trying to figure out how to develop a better way. Oh yeah, and I'd make millions of dollars by starting my own social networking website. And of course, my ultimate goal would be to take over the world...

Yes, it is true. I am a baseball fan. And to anyone who has a problem with it, or says that it's boring, I have one response for you: well before the first American football player was in diapers, pitchers were pushing off the ole rubber to guys with wooden bats. Don't you ever forget the sport of America's past-time.
And so begins another season of Cubs baseball. We've started out pretty well here, winning the first two of three, and losing that middle game in an extra innings outing against the Astros. That's okay. It's early, and the bullpen didn't perform. They'll only get better.
It's already 10 AM here, and I've wasted enough time online... It's time to get back to work on my recordings... And, of course, I can't forget to bug my brother about getting his account info for Gameday Audio...

So this past week, Megan and I went to Florida for a couple of days. And yes, you may have noticed that there wasn't a video because of it... We had a great time, traveling all over the state: from Daytona to Cape Canaveral, to Orlando and Disney, to Tampa, on the Gulf. We were able to catch up a little with some good friends of ours, spend some time at the beach, and eat. And eat some more. The only downer, you see, is that it rained for two and a half days of the six that we were there. But at least it was in the seventies...
We came home on Saturday to 40 degrees and a snowstorm in the forecast. Completely unpleasant, and absolutely unnecessary. And as our pilot said, "Apparently Chicago still hasn't gotten the memo that it's Spring."
