I'm a bit late, but this post needs to be out there. I just wanted to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped and passed the word along about my A family in need post. I was able to gather enough to give the family a boost to their Christmas.
Normally I wouldn't write a post like this, there's a lot of people out there that need help these days, especially in this economy. This case hits too close to home to not pass the word along. Last year my family was down and out and had a very hard time making ends meet and was on the verge of not having any type of Christmas for my younger siblings. Word got out and many many people came forward to help out my family. My brother came home one night from the farm he worked at with a carload full of gifts, etc for my family and sisters so they could have a Christmas celebration. This year, we are trying to Pay It Forward. Not only did that movie strike home and make a good point, but my family was helped last year, this year it's time to help another.
This is a PERFECT video/talk about why work doesn't actually happen at work. Everybody, especially management, should watch this and take it to heart.
With all the people I've seen recently having kids or getting pregnant, I've decided to make a nice post as to why I have decided to not have kids. This post is not meant to offend, mock, make fun of, laugh at, or degrade anyone, it's just my opinions and reasoning for not having kids myself.
Tonight I was thinking, as I so often do, about mobile phones, how my current usage dictates what I buy and use, and how a different device, in one way or the other, can benefit or change my current experience of a mobile device. As many (if not all of you readers) may know, Nokia just announced many new devices, all running Symbian of some sort, most notably Symbian S^3, including the C6, E7, and N8. Each device tailored to a different usage style and audience and all with their major pros and cons based on each user. This has really gotten me thinking and dwelling on my current situation.
I didn't write this, but it was shown to me by a teacher in high school. Figured I'd post it again for everyone. Good lesson here.
Following up from my post a long time ago about the Nokia N900 not supporting MMS natively here, this post is to elaborate on the state of affairs now.
So, I've got a savings and checking account with National City, and when I want to put money away, I just transfer it into my savings account. Makes perfect sense no? I thought so too, but I knew there was some type of limit on the transfers, so I figured I'd call up National City and figure it out....so here it is:
This applies to all pets in general but is written about a dog.
How could you?
A man in Grand Rapids, Michigan incredibly took out a $7000 full page ad in the paper to present the following essay to the people of his community.
A really good puzzle for those of you out there :)
I heard information about the Nokia N900 not supporting MMS upon launch. I was curious about it so I decided to email their support and ask. I didn't get the kind of response I was looking for, but here it is nonetheless (formatting edited for readability).
If any of you are like me, you like to game. And being so, you probably like racing games, especially the Need For Speed series. So I'm sure you all got excited for the newest release of Need For Speed...Undercover! I know I was. I happened to come across it at a local video store for PS2 and I HAD to have it for PC. My fiancee got it for me as a gift and I was stoked.
I didn't write this, I just found it, and found it VERY appropriate and so true. Enjoy!
PERFECT parody of Abbott and Costello!
The Most EPIC Drive-thru video I've EVER seen!
