Score One For Comcast!

I rebooted by cable modem this afternoon and got a thrill – our cable connection has gone from 1.5mbps last year, to 3mbps last fall and now it’s up to 4mbps! For an extra $10 per month I can get 6mbps service, too!

Genuine Faux

Ready to sell my TV today for cash, I went to Staples and bought one of those pens that detect whether currency is fake or not. I tested a few $1 bills and a $5 – all passed. I tested a plain piece of paper and it failed with black/brown marks. Then, out of curiosity, I tested a TriMet bus ticket. It passed the test!! I was, and still am, very surprised. Why would the paper used for bus tickets pass a counterfeit currency ink test?!

Woo – What A Weekend!

Codi and I had a really nice weekend. We had Saturday breakfast at Zeppo. Of course, it was excellent. We then went to Rumi Simone for massages.

Later that day we went to Benihana. I found $2 in the parking lot. =)

Later that evening, I started brewing a new beer – an apple beer!

Today Codi and I went on a nice long drive in the country. Based on a friend’s recommendation, we stopped by Bald Peak – a mountain that towers over most of the vineyards in the Dundee area.

There was a beautiful view of Mount Hood from the opposite side of Bald Peak.
