|For Daegan's second birthday, he got a powerwheels go-kart from his grandparents. He's been afraid of it until now.|
|There seems to be a growing trend nowadays where instead of people going outside when it's hot and dipping their feet in a pool, going to the nearest lake or sitting under the shade of a nice tree in the park, people tend to sit in their dark air conditioned homes without even thinking of setting foot out the door. Despite this being the perfect opportunity to go outside after being couped up inside during the winter, they decide to continue to stay indoors. Their homes are their caves and they simply can't come out unless it's to forage for food. When they do emerge, it's with much grumbling and grunting.|
Rather than doing summer activities, they stay in their deep dark caves. The more they get their bodies used to a temperature that is significantly lower than outside, the worse it will be when they finally do emerge from their cave.
Some air conditioned cave dwellers take it to the extreme and claim that
it's unhealthy to not live in an air conditioned cave. I don't know if any of these cave dwellers realize that this is New England. We are far north of the equator and people in South America and Africa do just fine without air conditioning. People have survived for many thousands of years in much hotter climates without air conditioning. I don't remember reading any puritan journals about the harsh New England summers.
This air conditioner sequestering is a fairly recent trend that has gradually been seeping into the culture. Do these cave dwellers remember when they were kids? Did their parents keep them indoors because of the heat or did they actually enjoy the summer like most kids did in the past not so long ago? When did something like air conditioning become a necessity rather than a luxury?
So, while all of you cavemen decide to stay in your climate controlled prisons, my family can actually go outside and enjoy the New England summer. Pools, sprinklers, water fights, cookouts, etc... I urge everyone to come out of the caves and adapt. If you do it enough, the heat will not bother you that much.

Easy Reader book Holder
It's basically a book holder for the steering wheel in your car, so you can read and drive while talking on your cell phone and sipping your favorite beverage.
I'm pretty sure it's a joke, but the reviews for the item are hilarious.
|According to this survey, I can take 18 five year olds in a fight.|
I feel so proud of myself...
|I'm pretty sure that Daegan broke our digital camera. While I can't say that I'm 100% sure, I have some pretty compelling evidence.|
These are the last pictures stored on the camera before it stopped working:
