Larry the Cable Guy

As we were walking through campus, we noticed a crowd of people. Turns out Larry the Cable guy was "Gittin' her done". I snapped a couple of photos as he signed autographs.

Later the Husker cheerleaders insisted on a photo with me. Erin found this ironic since I'm cheering for the Jayhawks and not the Huskers this game!

Home From Europe!!!

We are back home after ~3 weeks traveling. Our itinerary turned out to be as follows:

Tuscany Region including Montepulciano, Siena, Florence, Pienza
Cinque Terra

I'll post numerous interesting snaps over the next few weeks but here's one to get you started. In Rome, we looked at the ruins including the Colosseum and Palatine hill area but Rome is also the home of more modern ruins as evidenced by the following snap I took:

Jackass II

I caught the new Jackass movie yesterday. It was pretty funny. Some of my favorite bits include the one pictured, where Johnny Knoxville clings to a giant rocket as it shoots across a lake. I also liked the "Toro-totter" where 4 guys are on teeter totters going up and down trying to avoid a rampaging bull. Everyone ends up getting gored.

Huskers vs. USC

Huskers were on top early. If the game only lasted 14 minutes Huskers would have won! As it turned out, they lost 28 to 10.

GuS Reviewed

I heard about GuS recently and was anxious to test it. GuS stands for Grown Up Soda. GuS is "...the first soda made
truly for adult palates. It’s less sweet than typical flavored sodas, juice drinks and bottled teas." I tried 4 flavors: Dry Meyer Lemon, Dry Valencia Orange, Star Ruby Grapefruit, and Extra Dry Ginger Ale. I must say GuS is a tasty soda. It's a refreshing change from the sweet Pepsis of the world. I recommend GuS as a product, but the price is a bit out of line. At $2.50 per bottle I'll stick to RC Cola except for special occasions.

Initial Italy Snap

Barb and Rick dropped us off at the train station this morning and headed back to Rome for their Chicago flight. Steph and I trained to Florence - Pisa and finally to the Cinque Terra on the Italian Riviera. Here is a snap from there. It is from the top of a castle - one side faces the see, the other the town. It is neat.

Europe Report

So far so good. We had a couple really nice days in Rome. Saw the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Colliseum, various ruins, etc... Then we drove up to our Villa which is quite close to Montepulciano. Visited Siena, Montalcino with plans to take a train to Florence tomorrow. Taking lots of photos to post later.

Looking to Avoid Natural Disasters?

Time recently ran a Katrina - One year later article and included 4 maps of the country with risk assessments due to Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods and Wildfires.

Earthquake risk takes out the entire western side of the country and a good chunk of the mid-west. Floods take out much of the center and East coasts while Hurricanes take out the balance.

Overlaying the maps shows three small parts of the country that seem to avoid all 4.

1. Portions of Northern Michigan including the Eastern part of the peninsula
2. Small sections of North Central Nebraska
3. Small sections of Northwest Kansas
