Lost now online!

Many of the networks have posted episodes of their shows online; however, until now us TV viewers North of the border could only watch Canadian fare, such as Corner Gas. Now, ABC has posted the past seasons episodes of shows such as Lost, Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives.

And I'm hoping that when the season starts up again the new episodes will also be posted after they've aired.

BTW, Happy New Year. Here's hoping all your dreams are realized in the new year. But don't forget to take action to make them happen.


The Truth About Vegas

Everyone's heard the saying, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

Watch this video for the truth.


I'm Time magazine's Person of the Year!

Time has chosen me as the person of the year . . . they've actually chosen you as well - you being anyone using or creating content on the World Wide Web or Web 2.0. The 2.0 doesn't signify a new version, but a revolution where the individual has taken on the role of the media creating news stories, producing videos, and even developing free software.

All the more power to me with blogs, YouTube and the opportunity to develop software for the free source Linux operating system.

Although it may seem like a bit of a cop out by Time, especially with so much going on in the world, such as in the Middle East, the effects of global warming and still so much poverty and disease in the world. There must be people out there making a difference for these causes who deserve recognition for their selfless acts.

Even Time's editor, Richard Stengel, agrees it's a bit of a cop out: "If you choose an individual, you have to justify how that person affected millions of people, but if you choose millions of people, you don't have to justify it to anyone."

But hey, I guess I should graciously accept the honour and revel in their choice of me as person of the year (along with you and the millions of others).

Snow Day

On Friday we received in one night a third of the snowfall typically received in one winter. They actually closed downtown.

I measured the snow out my back door and there was 21 cm. I really had to pucj to get the door open, and the car was almost completely buried.

I was lucky to get the day off as work was closed, but my wife still had to go in. Although a few hours late as we had to dig our way out first.

The last time it was near this bad was 1977 when they received heavy snowfall for a whole week.

And now the temperature is above zero and we're going to get rain the end of the week.


Remember them

Today is the 65th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Survivors have been meeting there every five years, and now that they are in their 80s and 90s and are saying this will be the last time that they meet.

"Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw, who dubbed Americans who came of age during the Great Depression and World War II "the greatest generation," agreed to be keynote speaker for Thursday's ceremony."

Many of us alive today haven't lived through anyhting like our fathers and grandfather's have - the great depression, a world war. There are only a few WWI veterans still alive and soon, in 10 to 20 years, there will be no WWII veterans left.

With the war going on in the Middle East it is bringing to lite a bit of what it might have felt like for our parents and grandparents living during WWII.

I was at a Christmas luncheon the other day and the conversation inevitably turned to the war and one person mentioned she had lost a nephew over in Iraq. My parent's good friends lost their son, Robert Mitchell. With an average of one or two Canadian soldiers killed each week it's becoming hard to be in a group and not have at least one person personally affected by the conflicts overseas.

It's a shame that there's always ongoing conflict in the world to remind us of the affects of war. However, there must be those who do forget, or who have short term memories, because there is always ongoing conflict.

Life is paved with good intentions

OK, I'm not doing so good at posting to this daily; however, I do still try to write daily. I do a lot of writing for my job, so when I'm busy at work, I don't have as much time to read and find fodder for my posts.

I need to focus more on Entertainment London and my web marketing as search engine rankings are still really low on the movie site and I've dropped from number one with my site.

I've added a Google search to Entertainment London, so you can bookmark it and use it when doing searches. There's also a Sony link on the page and a 10% discount on purchases of Sony DVD movies or TV series.


Too funny

These are excerpts from a book of actual court recordings, Disorder in the American Courts.

Lawyers spend a lot of years in school, you'd think they have some more basic reasoning skills.

Thanks to Mike and his families blog for posting these first.

We do not test on animals.

Coca-cola not available for comment after this image surfaced on the Internet.

However, the Zoo is experiencing renewed revenue growth as consumer products strategically placed with the animals.

Coca-cola still not available for comment on this new strategic product placement initiative.
