Ms. Dewey

Posted: December 29, 2006 by jgrantmarshall in Uncategorized

Ms. Dewey is a new interface for the new Microsoft Live Search.  (More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ms._Dewey).  Basically, you type in your query and an actress-portrayed character, Ms. Dewey, searches for you and retrieves the results and some of her own commentary.  Some of this commentary can be a bit “spicy”, as Leo Laporte finds out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JODUOVJObU.

Christmas Eve ’06

Posted: December 25, 2006 by jgrantmarshall in Uncategorized

Ah… another Christmas Eve in the books… heck, only another 10 minutes until Christmas!  We have had a blast today.  The schedule was as follows: went to church, brunch with the fam, miniature golfing, nap/wrap last minute gifts, dinner, unwrap family gifts, send Grant to bed before Santa gets here, and then watch “A Christmas Story”.  Now, just uploading some pics of the past month to Flickr and updating here. 

Grant made a pretty good haul this year… we do our best to spoil him… we spent the last minutes before bed tonight playing his new “Viva Pinata” game together.  He is really starting to get fun toys now!

I hope you are enjoying your holiday season!

For those of you who have been asking (Barbara), I have edited a video of Grant’s Christmas Program and just need to upload to Google… I actually tried last night, but it apparently didn’t go through because I do not see it today.  Hopefully I will have it on this page tonight.  Stay tuned…

WoW South Park episode

South Park plays World of Warcraft video game…  I’ve never actually played WoW, but I hear it is pretty cool!

*edit* It looks like YouTube pulled the video. 

NFL Refs in Sweats?

I can’t be the only one that is questioning the wind pants worn by the officials in the game last night.  Madden remarked something like it looked like they were ready for practice.  I’m definitely not Mr. Fashion, but I also don’t wear a T-shirt and jeans to work and that basically, to me, is what the new cold weather uniforms looked like.  What do you think?
