School Pictures 2011!

The kiddies school pictures are in!  This, of course, includes Elle's first school picture and their first sibling school picture.  Elle wasn't the most chipper as she was fighting her first ear infection but she went along.
Here they are together:

And Jack...

And Jack's Sea Turtle class!

And the little jewel Elle!

Georgia Tech Passing Attack Featured as Yahoo Lead Story!

Georgia Tech is largely a running team.  Kind of a 12 yards and a cloud of dust thing - just ask Kansas.  But in their close win against North Carolina yesterday their leading receiver made a great catch.  The country caught on to it throughout the day and it was a lead Yahoo story last night.

Here's the catch!

and the headline...

Walnut Ridge, Arkansas - Bill and The Beatles!

Walnut Ridge, it turns out is more than a 1-trick pony town. Who knew? Among our family, Walnut Ridge is famous only as the town were Bill was born. I think we also once caught a train to Chicago from there as kids.

Now it turns out, after a front page article in the Wall Street Journal, Walnut Ridge was proudly celebrating the fact that the Beatles changed planes there over a ~15 minute duration back in '64.

This is Totally Uncalled For!

Notre Dame to ACC?

Realistically, Notre Dame would probably be welcomed into any conference they choose. I've always assumed it would eventually be the Big 10 though I guess I'm not opposed to seeing them in the ACC. My preference would be they remain an increasingly less relevant independent team.

The Clouds of the Dog Days

While the dog days of summer rarely bring rain to us here in NorCal we do get a few more clouds. These were particularly cool.

Football Season is Here! Who Picked LSU over Oregon?

That was definitely my best pick during opening week-end. In total, I won two and lost two.

Clifford and Michigan State???

Today was football day at school to celebrate the new season upon us.  Steph and I were a little appalled to see that Jack has outgrown everything but his Michigan State gear (of which there is a constant stream coming in courtesy of Aunt Jasper and Grandpa DeBruyn).   So Michigan State it was!  Go Sparties!

Elle, who owns no football gear, decided to celebrate by hopping on Clifford (the big red dog - implying she's rooting for Nebraska undoubtedly)

Steph and I will be placing some orders for Georgia Tech and Michigan clothing later today!

The Eight Dollar Burger

There is a new burger place near our house in Lincoln. It's called Crave, and the Journal Star review says it's the best burger in town. Crave is operated by the owners of Hollenbeck Farms out of Elmwood, Nebraska. They raise their own cattle in a hormone-free kind of way for the meat. We tried a burger and found it to be very flavorful. Unfortunately, it also cost $8.00 before tax and that price didn't include fries! And I used to think the six dollar burger was steep!

The pushy caller said "Buy OVTI"

The other night I answered the phone and it was a cold call from a broker. Their firm's analysts were convinced OmniVision Technologies stock was price was going to vault through the roof the next day after they released their earnings. Wanted to sell me as many share as I wanted immediately with only a $100 commission. I listened to his pitch, jotted down the ticker symbol (OVTI) and then told him no thanks when he wanted to FedEx all the paperwork to me.

I ran across the ticker today and here is what happened after their earnings:
