It's finally raining in Texas. Been a while.

I finished my blackjack book. I learned quite a bit. For a while Kelli and I would play whatever $5 blackjack table we could find. Well not all are created equal. Many Vegas strip casinos pay 6 to 5 on Blackjacks instead of the normal 3 to 2. The 6 to 5 payout is much less money for the player and much more money for the house. Hopefully we can find decent/fair blackjack tables next week. I have been practicing for at least an hour a day. If I stick to the strategy in the book (which is a little different than "normal") I do pretty well. I am going to do my best to avoid playing by "my gut" or letting the table influence my decisions.

Kelli had an alarm clock issue this morning. Twice in one week! Every night I ask her if her alarm is set...she always responds yes. Hmmm yeah.

April 1st will be the one year anniversary with my car. April will also be the one year anniversary since I bought my Macbook Pro.

I turn 32 in less than 2 weeks. Getting closer to 40 by the second.

Our Sony 57 inch HDTV is having issues. The light gun that displays red is misaligned on the top left and bottom right portions of the screen. The manual aiming isn't working well. We only watch the news on it....might have to google how to fix the issue the hard way. Our 52 inch Samsung LCD A750 is performing flawlessly.

In addition to the Wii Fit I am also walking on the treadmill again. If I can sit on the couch and watch TV then I can walk on the treadmill and watch TV.

The economy sucks. American Airlines announced they are reducing capacity. American Eagle has not announced any more cuts. AMR (the company that owns both American Airlines and American Eagle) already planned DEEP cuts last fall. The cuts looked severe, but appear to be just right. The number of passengers flying on American Eagle in February was down 14% from last year. This looks bad.....and it is. The good part is the load factor (how full the planes are) was only down 3%. This means there were fewer passengers flying, but the planes were only slightly less full due to the preplanned reduction in flights.

Hopefully that Obama guy can get his crap straight. He spoke so much on how he would reduce wasteful spending. The first few bills he signed were FULL of pet projects. Today there is a $410 million dollar bill that is FULL of pet projects that will be on his desk. I bet he will sign. Obama hasn't done anything worth of value in his first 100 days. November 6, 2012 can't come fast enough.
