I like this one…

Baby Name Trending from 1800′s to Present Day May 26, 2008Posted by Sean in : Fascinating! , add a comment
This is cool… you can explore name trends for the past 100 years by typing the first letter of the name… OR you can type a full name and see it’s usage for the last 100 years.
Interesting Note: Elijah had a significant increase in the late 1990′s.. Do you think people were really that “inspired” by the Lord of the Rings trilogy?

Jill Bolte Taylor talks about her research on the Human Brain and her personal insights as a result of a stroke she had.
Right Hemisphere is concerned with Right Here, Right Now. (Plural)
Left Hemisphere is concerned with The Past and the Future. (Individual)
When My right arm went limp I realized.. oh my gosh I’m having a stroke! then my brain says.. wow, this is so cool, this is so cool! How many brain scientists have the opportunity to study their own brain from the inside out !!
She’s great, very interesting…
Thanks for the recommendation Bill..
Potato Soup in the Blender! May 22, 2008Posted by Sean in : Blender, Trader Joes , add a comment
I just finished my first batch of soup in my Blender.
I got all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s:
- 2 bags of mini potatoes (1 red, 1 white)
- 1 quart of Vegetable Broth
- Salt & Pepper to taste
I boiled the onion and potatoes then moved them to the blender with some vegetable broth and seasoned to taste.. then repeated until I was out of boiled ingredients.
When I hit the “SOUP” button, the man inside the blender started whipping all 3 horses and turned my boiled potatoes into lump-free soup.. The consistency is good, but I need to work on the flavor.. it’s “almost there”…
