NFL draft observations; Gas prices and profits; Google release a 3D drawing program for free

Some Sping pics from my digi cameraAhhh… the NFL draft and all the hoopla about a 2-day cattle call. The Houston Texans made the biggest splash of the weekend for not selecting Reggie Bush with the #1 pick. He would have put butts in seats and driven revenue, but they went with a defensive end who had a great combine (tryout) for the team scouts. The Patriots went with a lot of offensive players, which is the total opposite of last year.

Oil companies suck
They're making record profits and we're paying $3 a gallon or more. Shame on them but shame on us as well. I can't tell you how many times I see a single driver in a super-sized SUV getting 15 or less miles to the gallon. And how about the arrogance of GM advertising Hummers like there a second car for most families. Check out the new Toyota Yaris and the Honda Fit. Good second car choices for mini-van/SUV families.

Google dives into another channel
I'm just checking it out myself, but take a lookie at the new Google 3D drawing program (online) which is, of course, free. I use their search, maps, news, and a lot of other resources under the Google umbrella. Good for them, I guess. Sort of the online Microsoft I guess.

    I don’t have anything to say about any of this other than you should come to Cape Ann and stop wasting your time at Mount Auburn. This afternoon without leaving my comfy bench-under-the-catalpa-tree: bunches of Northern Parula Warblers (in the old oak tree); female Prothonotary warbler (in the pear tree); yellow-rumped warblers and black-and-white warblers. Birdie heaven, we are….
