Bed Made EZ

Nice.

From bookofjoe:

“Bed Made EZ

From the website:

Bed Made EZ

Save your back (and fingernails) by using Bed Made EZ to help tuck in linens and bedding.

When making a bed, today's thicker, heavier mattresses can make changing the sheets not only difficult but also painful, especially if you're prone to back pain.

Bed Made EZ is an ergonomic device that slides easily between the mattress and box spring, raising the mattress so linens are easier to put on.

Smooth-edged molded plastic wedge has narrow front edge that can be used to tuck in sheets.

$29.99  (bed and linens not included).

Molly on Vacation

We’re on vacation this week. First since August! We were in dire need of one…

Lots of fun this week. Most of it has been centered around Molly. We’ll just hang out for hours, playing with her all around the house and at the parks. When in downtown Waynesville, she loves waving at nearly everyone she sees. It is now apparent that everyone in Waynesville also knows a dog named Molly.

Waynesville folks are also very attached to socks. You see, Molly pulled one off this morning and we caught it. Put it in our pocket for safe keeping (putting it back on her would just be silly at this point). And spent the next 3 hours explaining to all sorts of passerbys that yes, she did pull off her sock, it’s because she’s a Florida girl, yes we have it, thanks and have a nice day! To be fair, said passerbys were all VERY friendly and quite content to let Molly laugh and smile at them. She waved and smiled and delighted the entire Whitman’s 11:30 lunch crowd today, much to all’s content.

Took a ride up to the Blue Ridge yesterday, very fun. Started out in the 50’s at the house, nadir at 33 degrees up in the clouds on the parkway. Photos forthcoming. Timed the trip with Molly’s AM nap. She was so sweet, she woke up for a few minutes in the mountains just to say high, smile smile smile, then turned her head and went back to sleep!

More later.

Rockhouse Vineyards – Wines of North Carolina

We’re not wine experts by any stretch, however extreme, of the designation. We purchased a bottle of the 2005 Merlot today and had some for dinner (with grilled London Broil, marinade from “Doin’ the Charleston” Merlot Steak Sauce, thai lemon grass and ginger rice accompanied by French Bread a ‘la Ingles of Waynesville….don’t we sound fancy! Fear not, it’s just the sound. ). Very strong. Pretty good. Wine experts (see above) that we are, I think we remember the Biltmore Merlot a bit more fondly now.

Scientists Break Brain/Twitter Barrier [Voices]

Aside from being kinda cool, think of the possibilities! I mean, what would Molly twitter if she could just think about twittering?

I think her first twitter would be “Cheerios!” if we gave it to her this morning.

From All Things Digital:

“Scientists Break Brain/Twitter Barrier [Voices]

University of Wisconsin-Madison biomedical engineering doctoral student Adam Wilson has successfully tested a “brain wave monitor” to the Twitter publishing interface, allowing him to compose a message merely by thinking and publish it to the arguably too-popular microblogging service.

Either the gates of Hell have begun to open or this is a grad student who really knows how to publicize his work by riding the bandwagon of popular culture. Both are probably true.
