Remember this.... It is now true. Details at

In an attempt to lure more young parishioners, the catholic church has launched new social media applications for Facebook, the iPhone, a social Wiki, and of course YouTube. This is in addition to associated podcasts on iTunes.

Test Image From Flickr

Originally uploaded by Garison C. Garison
I am trying out the Flickr to Blogger connection to push photos to my blog. Of course, I grabbed one of my favorite photos from Las Vegas as my push test, but this might just be the tool that I need to make everything link the way I want without having to maintain stuff on Picasa as well.

Here goes!

Jalopnik Recommendation: GM Registers Bankruptcy Web Site Ahead Of Bankruptcy

From: Jalopnik has sent you a link to a post on Jalopnik:

Title: GM Registers Bankruptcy Web Site Ahead Of Bankruptcy

From: Jalopnik says: Looks like GMs toast is almost done and the ding on the toaster is 15 days away.

Hang on to your skives. This trip may leave a skid mark or two.

C. Garison From the Web @Jalopnik.Com

It is everywhere

I remember seeing a car that look like a rolling trash can many years ago in Ashland.  Well, I know these people are all over the nation, but to my shock, the Honda Odessey rolling trash can in Wayne, PA really took the cake. 

This appears to be the start of a recycling nightmare.  Most of the trash appears to be recyclable and the back of the van was filled with boxes.  Had the whole van been filled like the passenger sheet, the suspension would be trashed.

So now to find better sites to capture with my camera phone.

Mark Hallburn has become a topic of discussion around some blogs and message boards.

Well, I will not kick a man when he is down, but I sure will light the path. Here is a link to the best of the battle.

And now I see the Girl of Words is fanning the flames.

This is going to be good.

Fun Picture

I like taking pictures and now I am getting back into the swing of thing. This is one of my favorites. Glass is fun especially with lots of bokeh.

I need to try this photo in Lightroom 2.3 and see if I can make a better image. It should be pretty cool.

Found this little item on the web. Some of these are more true. Some are less true.

As I've matured...

Author: unknown

As I've Matured...
I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just jackasses.
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.
I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think.
I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.
I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished.
I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.
I've learned that ex's are like fungus, and keep coming back.
I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.
I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it.
I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.
I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away. And the real pains in the ass are permanent.

1 year later and just another post

I have to learn to blog more. This is silly for me.

I still take lots of photos, fuss with Vista, now have ADP Enterprise and ADPR as tools I like to complain about that are used in my day to day work, but rarely mention them on the web.

Oh! I now have my Six Sigma Black Belt, and trade my white car for an almost identical new model, but this one is - - - Black.

Now my annual post is out of the way, lets go back to my other work.
