Shannon versus the S-chute

Top of something I've been calling the s-chute

View from the bottom, entry is low pt on ridge, but out of view.

Dragons? check
Half naked elf lady? check
Satan with sword? check
Black Elf with baseball hat on backwards? check.


Was it a van? No.
PT Cruiser's were cool for 3 days right when they came out. This car's paint is is extending its run

Predictions


In the past I predicted that "computers" are a passing fad.

My new vision of the future has to do with something called "the internet". Many information/entertainmnet outlets are going to go the way of the newspaper. Radio stations, tv, phone line will all be thru internet. Companies will be scrambling to figure out how to make money in this new enviornment. Some will adapt and survive, others will not.

here are some cool websites so that you are ready.

tv. http://www.hulu.com/ -hook your tv and get rid of cable.
radio http://www.slacker.com/ -get rid of your ipod, quit listening to dj's
telephone http://www.ooma.com/ -pay for box, get rid of your phone line
personal finance http://www.mint.com/ - a poor mans quicken
office software http://openoffice.pro-2010.com/openoffice/index.php?pflow=icc - same as office but free.

I have just bought a computer that will hook up to my tv. Streaming video will be here shortly. I would get rid of my cable but one can't get rid of what one never had.

The Last Unicorn



I am a magical unicorn.

I like sunsets and cotton candy and lolipops.

I am also apparently quite fond of space.


Day 15.

In a row. Two laps Up Argenta
Billy made it, Dan Didn't. Dan had a new splitboard rig he was going to try. Important tip-when bringing your new splitboard rig, remember to bring along your boots. I offered up my cowboy boots-not interested.

Finished off a Homerun on Pioneer Ridge. Wasn't a Goal to Ride 15 days straight. It just turned out that way. Bidding Reserve and great snow helped. Legs are made of rubber now, have lost 7 pounds. Suppose to snow all week. I may take a day off on a big powder day, dont want to become too predictable.
