Stars Stars

From Doc McStuffins' Arcade Escapade (Season One, Episode 6), this is the first part of the catchy song...

Hey that a rocket
Hey there goes a comet
Ooo.. Looks like a party on the moon

Stars Stars Planet and Stars
I can see Jupiter, I can see Mars
Up there every where you see
Planet Stars and Galaxies

All those dots light in space are there places far away
Let go searching past the sun...

Send in the Cavalry

Send in the Cavalry

Couldn't believe that I wasn't able to find a graphic for 'Send in the Cavalry.' I quickly put this one together.

Doomsday Prepper TV Show

Last night I saw some of the Doomsday Prepper show on the National Geographic channel. I couldn't believe that people were seriously getting ready for the end of the world. They were spending thousands of dollars to build fallout shelters. They also were spending lots of money for food and supplies.

My question is what do they really think will happen on December 12, 2012? How will the world come to an end? Why do they think what they are doing is going to make that much of a difference? The TV show didn?t really provide answer to those questions, just showing what people are doing to prep for that day.

Are people really going to rely on a particular date of when the world is going to end from a civilization that doesn?t exist anymore?

If you?re really paranoid on what is going to happen on December 12, 2012, make sure to update your countdown clock.

Long Words

The words "uncopyrightable", "dermatoglyphics", "misconjugatedly", and "hydropneumatics", are the longest words in the English language that do not repeat a letter.

Only uncopyrightable and dermatoglyphics are acceptable words in "Words with Friends" or Scrabble? games. Good luck trying to ever generate that word during a game!

Mysteries of Wikipedia

There are a couple of strange stories worth reading about on Wikipedia. Can you solve the mysteries?

Bloop
The Bloops is a name given to the strange sound picked up by U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1997, while listening to sounds near the south Pacific Ocean. The origins of the sound appears not to be man-made.

Wow Signal
On August 15, 1977 a strange sound was heard on the Big Ear radio telescope which was setup to listen to sounds in space. This sound hasn't been heard again. What was this sound? Why hasn't it appeared again?

You should also check out these Websites that talk about other weird and strange sounds:

Badluck Schleprock

If your looking for the negative character on the Flintstones call "slep rock" his real name is Badluck Schleprock. You can find some information on Wikipedia. I haven't found anything that actually shows what episodes that he appeared in.

I am blogging this because I had a hard time finding the character base on my search for "slep rock" and the name wasn't listed among the characters on the main Flintstone page on Wikipedia. My search found other people had the same problem spelling Schleprock's name.

Hope this posting helps someone else out! Poor Schleprock, stuck with a name that many people can't spell correctly.

90 Days of Summer

Ninty Days of summer has official started! 90 days from today is the last day of August.  Summer un-officially ends on September 7, Labor Day, which means that there are 97 days of summer left!

Early reports show that Cape Cod is going to have a great summer, lots of international visitors to the Cape. The Memorial Day weekend traffic was moderate, with reports that there was a ten mile backup on Route six.

Hope you have a great Summer!

Moving Tips

This past weekend I helped my brother move from an apartment to his new house. It was a lot of work, but in the end it made things easier for him.

Here's a brief list of what to bring when helping someone move::

  • Basic Tools - Screwdriver, Wrench, hammer and Pliers.
  • Cordless Drill with attachment for screwdriver and wrench
  • Water - Drink Plenty of Water
  • Snacks - Get a bite to eat.
  • Rope - You never know if you need more rope to tie things down.
  • Elastic Strap - Sometimes straps are easier than rope.
  • Duct Tape - Useful with boxes and closing bags.
  • Marker - In case you have to label boxes
  • Boxes - Go to UHaul, they will refund any unused boxes.
  • Band Aids - You never know if you will get cut.

If you are taking multiple cars make sure that you have directions to the final destination. Having a GPS is a good idea..
