Morning Cup O' Joe

Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

Here’s a couple of laughs….

There is nothing more magical than the sound of a babies laugh!

(His Wii golf swing must be horrid!)

Plantar Fasciitis and I have it…

Hits me like a Mac Truck first thing in the morning when I get out of bed. The best way I can describe the pain is…

Taking a Hot Poker and jabbing it into the heel of my foot, I kid you not. After the initial shock, the pain does go away but slowly returns the longer I stay on my feet.

I placed an order for a pair of these…

A few of my co-workers swear by them.

Voice Applications Day?

I didn’t really plan on investigating voice applications today, but I stumbled across a few in doing some research on GTD productivity and looking at some various tools that were mentioned in comments.

jott.com — This one has some scary potential. Potential to become addictive and then I can see the fees coming, but for now it’s free. Call an 800 number, speak a recipient (“Me”, “Team”, …) and then record a message. Jott transcribes it and sends an email on to the intended audience. Looks like a great way to send email reminders from your phone without texting it.

tellme.com – A friend went to work for TellMe 7 years ago or so. They are still in business and have been snatched up by Microsoft. They’ve still got a pretty cool product. Looks like Goog411 is encroaching, but TellMe will give you movie listing, restaurants, sports and other info via voice commands and voice prompts.

Carbon Off-set

The in thing is to Go Green but it’s kinda hard to do if you drive a Hummer to work every day. So to offset your environmental transgressions, buy one of these.

Basically, proceeds from the sale of “Terra Passes” are invested in renewable energy projects like Wind Farms. The theory is, these projects will eventually off-set your carbon emission activities.

I tried the on-line calculator for my car and according to the site:

1998 VW Bug = 4793lbs CO2/Year

To offset that, I can buy a $29.95 Terra Pass.
