A Crab in the Manger

This has been a rather fun week. I've been going in to work for a couple of hours in the morning and then coming home to play with my family the rest of the day. Sunday Brandon and Serene both got sick so we babied them all day and they felt greatly improved Monday morning as they were heading down the highway. It was good to have them for a couple of days but they then had to drive to Texas to see Serenes side of the family. As we were saying good bye to them at the car I looked over at my nativity scene on the front lawn and I noticed that there was a crab on the baby Jesus' head. That's right, a crab. I don't know who put it there or why but it was very dead and smelled very nasty.

I spent Monday night playing with my new toys. This Blue Ray player that we got is very cool. I plugged it into the internet and I can go online and watch anything I want. It hooks up to Hulu, Youtube, Net flix and a bunch of other sights that I've never heard of. We really watch very little TV around here but when I checked out Net flix I figured out that for $7 a month I can down load as many movies and TV shows as I want. It's unlimited and instantaneous. That is only pennies more than it costs to rent a single video from Blockbuster. So I'm now in hack for another $7 a month but I'm catching up on all the movies I've missed out on. You should see what blue ray looks like on a 52" TV. It's like a giant photograph. Very cool.

Today we went to Balboa Park to the natural history museum. They've got an exhibit of jewels. It was fascinating. I've always thought that I have an ugly birthstone. Green Peridot, I can't even pronounce it properly and I've always thought it looked a bit gross. I mean green is one of my favorite colors but who ever heard of green jewelry? I've never really liked emeralds either. Well after today I really like it. We saw some pretty fancy stuff today. We also saw a 3D movie about turtles. It reminded me a lot of the time we went to Hawaii and swam with the turtles.

Well that about brings me up to date on the week so far. It's very quiet around here with only Sarah around but we're having a ball.

There are 7,000 different languages in the world and one of them goes extinct every 14 days.

Ummmm......I had several things to comment on....then I saw your trivia which blew me away and now I forgot what I was going to say...

Oh yeah.....I am amazed that you didn't like emeralds.

funny, I've always loved Peridot :-)

Of anyone Jesus should know that he can't eat crab until he is 2 years old.

Actually a good Jew can't eat shell fish no matter how old they are.
