7/30/08 UPDATE: After all the blogging started about these pics the owner removed them. Usually I download and put them on my own server but not this time. Damn! Here's the one that still remains. FOX news posted the pics.

On June 21st, Casey Anthony was at this club in Orlando called Fusion and mugging for multiple pics. She's the one on the far left, in the bright blue dress looking really unconcerned about the welfare of her "missing" child.

I've been taken with this story. These side bar anecdotes are most telling...

Here's a great blog that is piecing together what the media is reporting, personal MySpace etc. info, and what the Anthony's are saying.

I really hope this is a case of a woefully irresponsible mother and that this little girl can be found. But after two-weeks and all of the media attention it doesn't look good for little Caylee Anthony.

There are more Flickr pics of Casey on 6/21/08 here. Plus the Flickr member just has some great imagery too,

"Are you a Tigger or an Eeyore?"

Rest in peace Randy Pausch. Today we lost one of those amazing people that lights up the world. I'll think about Randy Pausch today, say a prayer for his family and remember to be a blessing to those around me.

Read The Last Lecture, you'll be glad you did.

Logo design for Web 2.0 brands

Great collection of recent Web 2.0 logos, collected by flickr member Stabilo Boss a hot-linked version is on that site.
Logo design for Web 2.0 brands are following a traceable aesthetic trend,

1. Bright, bold, happy colors
2. Simple iconography
3. Clean typographical treatment

Overall, the trend is user-friendly, simplicity from company naming through overall look and feel.

"Nonsensical buzz words do nothing to communicate value, benefit, or story..."

Love this!! In a previous life at a Fortune-500-type-company, colleagues and I would actually play buzzword bingo. Not the most polite thing to do, but the corporate speak was unbearable. We were trying to keep our sanity.

So many press releases I see are filled to the rim meaningless buzz words. There is no need for me to say it all again when Jennifer A. Jones says it so well. Check out her blog. Enjoy.

Home Sweet Home

The kids just returned from summer vacation with their grandparents. This was taken by my aunt at a family friend's home in their back yard. The latest landscaping project. Beautiful! Where were the kids? In other words, where was I born and raised?

A. Alabama
B. Tennessee
C. Pennsylvania
D. West Virginia
E. Georgia

Do you have a Rental Property?

Do a Criminal Background check EVERY time. As a landlord or property manager, we know that a credit and employment check kept the bad renters and bounced checks away, but we often forgo the criminal background check. Let me tell you that I now know a reliable criminal screening can save you a world of trouble later on.

Luckily no one was injured or killed in this particular situation. And most of the neighbors had no idea an incident even occurred. The tenant moved on and we, with their security deposit in hand, are starting the repairs.

I'm in awe at the damage! Nine bullets left over 20 holes and tears in the windows, walls, doors, trim, curtains, blinds, mirrors, ceiling, light fixtures...

The police investigating the shooting were quick to tell me that this was drug related and that the victim had a criminal drug history. We won't make that mistake again.

Here are a few great online services if you too are a landlord,


I've used Intelius in the past but now that were going to do the criminal check I've switched to E-Renter. Why? They offer a very comprehensive package. I'll let you know how it goes.
