ABC Traveler: hitting the road?


ABC's summer series Traveler is one of those shows that I've been saving up to watch on my DVR. If it gets renewed I'll commit and watch the first season, but I'm not investing 6-10 hours in a show only to have it dropped by the network after I get into it.

TV Squad
thinks the show may be on the ropes and even the show producers are trying to get fans to write in to save it. Anybody out there watching Traveler? What do you think?

ABC Traveler: hitting the road?

Real life Treasure Hunt interrupts promotion for Disney's Pirates Of the Caribbean film.


Pirateschest Odyssey Exploration divers working with the Disney/Volvo treasure hunt promotion found a real sunken shipwreck laden with treasure while scouting locations to hid the treasure chest that was part of the Volvo contest. They temporarily named the new location the 'Black Swan'  Due to scavenge laws, confidentiality agreements with Volvo, and other twists the location of the 'Black Swan' hasn't been revealed. It's also prevented the winner of Volvo's contest from retrieving their prize. Sounds like a movie plot all its own.

Looks like a weekend poolside to me

Got to love Jersey weather.  Yesterday it was in the 90s. Today, a little rain and then a slight cool down.  Time to kick the ducks out, mix up a blender full of frosty rum drinks, and float in the pool  and let the sun bake out the stress of June.  And to think that I get to do this again next Wednesday.  Corn season coming soon. "Knee high by the 4th of July..."

For Real?


Just ran a speed test as things felt faster. I ran two more 30 minutes apart to be sure... 17.4 Megabits per second. I did have one at 22.8, but I threw it out as I could not record that speed again.

Windows Live Writer - First Post

This is just a test using the new Beta 2 version of the Windows Live Writer.  I'll be using it to post over the next few weeks to see if it lives up to all the hype.
