“Say, Pooh, why aren’t you busy?” I said.
“Because it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“Yes, but —”
“Why ruin it?” he said.
“But you could be doing something Important,” I said.
“I am, ” said Pooh.
“Oh? Doing what?”
“Listening,” he said.
“Listening to what?”
“To the birds. And that squirrel over there.”
“What are they saying?” I asked.
“That it’s a nice day,” said Pooh.
“But you know that already,” I said.
“Yes, but it’s always good to hear that somebody else thinks so, too,” he replied.

The Blind Shall Not See The dam is about to break, the whole area is in danger.  The National Guard sends a truck around to evacuate the residents.  One man, let’s call him “Bob”, tells the Guardsmen he won’t leave, that “God will provide”.  The Guardsmen argue for a bit, telling Bob he needs to come with them, now.  The dam could break at any minute!  Bob refuses, and the would-be rescuers drive off to get to others before it’s too late.

iPhone Fun

Have an iPhone? Here’s a fun way to waste a little time…

Download the Bing application from the App Store.  Open it and press the microphone icon in the upper right hand portion of the screen.  Now say any word or phrase, sit back, and wait to be amused.

I don’t think my phone speaks English!  Some of the things it came up with had me in stitches…  especially when I started saying things like “Visalia, California”.  It got California, but it had no clue and wasn’t even close to “Visalia”.

Anyway, download Bing and have at it.  Oh, and does anyone else find it odd that Bing has an app that was approved by Apple?  Isn’t that a bit going over to the Dark Side-ish?
