For the first time in 10 years my wife and I travelled to Massachusetts for our annual family reunion without packing a dedicated bag full of diapers and wipes .... My youngest is out of diapers and on his own (so to speak). What a difference it makes for vacations and the vacation schelp factor.
We are enjoying great beach weather and I can't wait to get back to building up PodTech.NET when I get back in full swing in September. Alot happening with PodTech and podcasting these days.
I have this debate with folks including my wife all the time. Is video gaming good for kids? When I was a kid I loved baseball and ice hockey and when video games hit the scene I was all over it. Hence got a degree in computer science. Hell if gaming promotes computer science I'm all for it and if it increases overall academic performance then damn it's a good move. Much better than my kids watching rug rats and the crap on TV.
Here is a story that I ran into today .. proof is coming in that says gaming is good for kids.
Going to school..Happy the Red Sox won the World Series

I'm really impressed with Our Pictures new application. It's an innovative application and network. No more burn a CD and share. This program is very innovative. All you need to do is download the small client app and have an email account. Some really smart people over at OurPictures.com are ahead of the curve on this one.
