First "What I'm Reading" of 2014

Okay, some of these are older than a week old but still worth sharing in my opinion.  

It's the first Friday of the new year, yo!  

So let's take a look at...

  1. Interesting reading - as always.

    We'll be taking down the tree later today. Maybe bowling tomorrow. Otherwise no real plans.

  2. The car mat thing really works. I used it YEARS ago when I was in college. Our hall parking lot was on a huge slope and of course, I was parked down the slope with front tires against the curb/median of the parking lot when an overnight ice and snow storm blasted us. Needless to say, backing up the slope was a fruitless venture and I had just read about using the car mats not long before. I jumped out, put a mat under/behind both back tires, put it in reverse and voila! I was out. I did however have to look for one of the mats that had become a projectile during the adventure! I found it though and was quickly on my way!

  3. Time to take the outside lights down tomorrow but man is it cold!
