Galilea Moon Phase Clock

29 06 2008

Any other moon phreaks out there? Well if you are one or know one, this would make a great gift. I love mine.

Here is what the website has to say:
Enjoy the beauty of Luna, Earth’s only natural satellite, with a sophisticated clock that maps the moon’s phases. In addition to the date and time, the Galilea’s hemisphere slowly rotates over 29 1/2 days, displaying the progressive phases of the moon. Made in France. Requires AA battery, not included.

OK, that aside, it is COOL! I bought one for myself and then a few more for friends. You can get yours at X-treme-Geek


Fearless Fourteen – Janet Evanovich

29 06 2008

Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet.

The Crime: Armed robbery to the tune of nine million dollars

Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn’t be more proud. He always was the smart one.

The Cousin: Joe Morelli

Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom’s sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

The Complications: Murder, kidnapping, destruction of personal property, and acid reflux

Less than a week after Dom’s release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He’s getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.

The Catastrophe: Moonman

Morelli hires Walter “Mooner” Dunphy, stoner and “inventor” turned crime fighter, to protect his house. Morelli can’t afford a lot on a cop’s salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.

The Cupcake: Stephanie Plum

Stephanie and Morelli have a long-standing relationship that involves sex, affection, and driving each other nuts. She’s a bond enforcement agent with more luck than talent, and she’s involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one.

The Crisis: A favor for Ranger

Security expert Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, has a job for Stephanie that will involve night work. Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie’s evening activities.

The Conclusion: Only the fearless should read Fourteen.

Thrills, chills, and incontinence may result.

Once again, Evanovich delivers a great read. I love love love this series and recommend it to everyone. My friends, ranging from their 20’s to their late 60’s all love this series. Get your own copy of Fearless Fourteen!

Fujifilm FinePix Z10FD 7.2MP Pink Digital Camera

16 06 2008

I needed a new digital camera. I really did. This one id great. the 7.2 MP rate is great for my purposes and the camera comes with some great modes to choose from so that I have to work really hard to take a bad picture. I especially like the setting where I can choose between natural light and the flash. It takes both photos together and I can pick which one to keep. I also really like the face recognition and stabilization modes. There is also a movie mode (with sound!) that makes it possible to record decent length movies (depending on the memory card). One of the big positives is the on board memory that allows you to take and store pictures and movies without a memory card. Of course I added the biggest one I could find and I also added an extra rechargeable battery. It comes with one but I want to have a charged one on hand at all times.

This is a great little camera to carry around with you. The color in the photo is true to the color I have. Don’t worry, there are others. Blue, Green and Orange. If there had been a metallic purple, I’d have gone with that. But I have no complaints about this camera so far and have been annoying the dogs by taking pictures of them non-stop since I got it. Here is where you can get your own Fuji FinePix Camera.
