Star Wars

Happy Birthday Mason!

There is something special about Star Wars that both young and old enjoy this classic tale of good vs evil. The boys, even though they have never seen the movies, love sword fights and pretending to be space rangers saving the universe (saving Baby O from Annie the German Shepard).
I even got into the game for a little while being a bad guy and chasing them around the yard with a Light Saber. Take a close look at the size of my Saber, yes it is a total of 6 inches long, and the boys had ones that were almost as tall as me. I felt a little ill equipped at times, to say the least.

I think the age range on the helmet was for 7 year olds.

May the force be with you Baby O.

I can't believe I actually got a smile out of her.

Nothing better then a good tummy rub.

Net Neutrality

After reading a blog posting this morning I thought it was important to shed some light on a topic that I have been following for a little while now, net neutrality. Net neutrality is the idea of keeping the internet speed and access open to all no matter who your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is. The FCC came out with a ruling that will help maintain this freedom. The following is a quote from from that ruling:

"Now is an exciting time. Web developers, companies, governments and citizens should work together openly and cooperatively, as we have done thus far, to preserve the Web’s fundamental principles, as well as those of the Internet, ensuring that the technological protocols and social conventions we set up respect basic human values. The goal of the Web is to serve humanity. We build it now so that those who come to it later will be able to create things that we cannot ourselves imagine."
