Momma Says Spock You OUT.
By way of Merlin Mann’s linkblog/tumblog, I stumbled across Yearbook Yourself, a site that allows you to insert your visage into yearbook photos of years gone by. While the above-linked shots of Mike Monteiro are downright hilarious, I shall allow you, my readers, to judge the results I obtained (click the photos to see larger versions in an interactive LightBox-esque slideshow):
There she is, my little niece.
My wife, kids and I climbed into the van yesterday evening and ran up to the Lehigh Valley to get our first look at our new niece/cousin. My brother and sister-in-law decided upon “Laney Beth” as their name — she’s a cute ‘un, just a little peanut, really, at around 5 lbs.
So congrats go out to Bryce and Kelly on their newest little one. She’s already a blessing, and I’m sure she’ll continue to be so.
It’s official: my brother and sister-in-law gave birth to their first child, a daughter, this evening. She’s a little under two weeks early and weighed a reported 5 lbs. 1 oz. She was delivered by emergency C-section and they had to put my sister-in-law under fully, so they haven’t yet revealed the name, as sis-in-law hasn’t had a chance to even hold her yet. Mom and baby are both in good health, though, and my brother reports the wee one was kicking everyone that came in range and raising a general ruckus.
I imagine there will be pictures, pending parental approval, of course.
Happy happy joy joy!
Whoa. Somebody got ahold of an extremely high-speed camera and captured footage of a lightning bolt, from cloud-borne inception to final strike. Dig it:
I love how the initial bolts meander slowly until one of them makes contact with the ground, at which point the entire charge of the strike takes that path in a spectacular fashion.
