We got through our first cycle with live sand - and now we're onto live rock. This is a Salt Water Tank and Anya's big gift this year for the holidays. It's been a bit of work but with just the live rock - it's looking good. We hope to get some snails, crabs, and shrimp next week or so. The Live Rock will start to grow with little critters and we will also get some coral in the future.

Black Friday: 5 Cheaper Ways To Spend Black Friday

This one is my favorite...;

Spend The Day Online, Reading Blogs, Looking At Porn And Then Playing Video Games While Thinking About Ordering Pizza Or Something
When it comes down to it, Black Friday isn't even a real holiday, so why should you spend it any differently than usual just because you're not at work (Unless you are at work, in which case... Well, we feel your pain, to be honest)? Just stay in that chair and keep reading us and maybe catch up on those episodes of Knight Rider that you've been secretly hiding on your TiVo. No-one needs to know. They're all out shopping, after all.

In an impromptu concert invite - I finally get to see AC/DC. One of the best and maybe only true rock shows I've seen. Imagine no ballads and no bullshit except for song after song of hits. The energy at times was stupifying, and these guys are all the original members - crazy.

The Big Picture on Barack Obama

I can't share the photos with you here, but click on through to Boston.com for a photo expose on President Elect Barack Obama.

In a vote of historic proportions yesterday, Senator Barack Obama became President-Elect of the United States of America with a 52% majority in the popular vote, and more than 349 electoral votes. Over two years of campaigning was resolved with a record voter turnout, as the Republican candidate John McCain conceded graciously at 11:20 pm eastern last night. With such a high level of interest and attention, there have been millions of words written and photographs taken of the candidates over the past year. Here is a collection of some of the best photos of President-Elect Barack Obama over the past several months.

SpaceX Did It -- Falcon 1 Made it to Space



That's right - the private space race is on.

SpaceX Did It -- Falcon 1 Made it to Space | Wired Science from Wired.com: "SpaceX has made history. Its privately developed rocket has made it into space.
After three failed launches, the company founded by Elon Musk worked all of the bugs out of their Falcon 1 launch vehicles.
The entire spectacle was broadcast live from Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific. Cameras mounted on the spacecraft showed our planet shrinking in the distance and the empty first stage engine falling back to Earth."

The Ultimate Millennium Falcon Playset

Sean used my Falcon for this review on SCIFI.com...

Millennium Falcon Playset | Cool Stuff | SCI FI Weekly: "One of the best toys going if you were old enough to remember the release of Star Wars in 1977, or its sequels in subsequent years, was the Millennium Falcon. Often considered to be one of the coolest spaceships ever designed, the Millennium Falcon is a smuggling cargo ship captained by Han Solo, with his first mate, Chewbacca, the Wookiee."

You can see Ewan in the background - running a fever of 102 while Anya is blissed out. Getting sick and having to leave events (we had to leave the zoo this past weekend) is starting to suck, but at least one kid has a good time while the other one plummets.

Woman Always Really Excited To Be In Whatever Relationship Status She's Currently In

Just think of this as a man or a woman. It's so true - you always hear how whatever status they're in - it's the perfect one.

Just six months after claiming she was ecstatic about moving in with her boyfriend, and a mere eight weeks after announcing that she "couldn't be happier" with their decision to take a brief time apart, administrative assistant Ann Castlen, 26, told friends Monday that she was absolutely thrilled to be single.

The Large Hadron Collider - Another Sign of the Apocalypse

Nothing excites and scares me more than accelerating particles and then smashing them together - with a possible outcome of a Black Hole? My god - who let them turn the power on. Oh well - you read it here first and last as you are sucked into the center of a tiny black hole today. Goodbye amazing world.

Skeptics, who claim that the experiment could lead to the creation of a black hole capable of swallowing the planet, failed in a legal bid to halt the project at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
