Through out the history of our nation, since it?s founding in the fire of revolution in 1776, we have spent more time at war through either actual fighting or in proxy wars, than we have at peace.
We have fought wars against almost every major European power, including ones who are now our allies, such as Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as nations that are still not so friendly such as Russia.

It’s Friday and it’s freakin colder than… well… something I can’t say in polite company. Temperatures are below 0 and all through there isn’t much of a breeze, the wind chills are a real killer. When hopped in the car to get it to warm up for the ride to work, it acted like I do when the alarm goes off and I hit the snooze button, repeatedly, for an hour. In the end however it did finally turn over.
I’ve had my new Dell Inpsiron Duo for about a week now and I’m loving it. I found out that it can recognize handwriting, Now if I just had a stylus that worked with a capacitive touch screen. It does have limitations, but that was pretty well expected from the beginning. It doesn’t make a very good gaming computer, but then honestly that’s not what I bought it for in the first place. It plays movies from Netflix and Amazon VOD great however. I did manage to log into World of Warcraft with it but I can’t really imagine playing WoW with any real competency with this computer. Again, I pretty much expected that from the beginning.
I bought it mainly as a writing tool, and as a work tool. And in those functions it has definitely worked great.
Well, that’s it for me today, I’m starting to sound like I’m writing a commercial for Dell, and that’s my cue to move on to other things this morning.
