perseid meteor shower

If you can, you should try to watch the famed Perseid Meteor
Shower. There finally won’t be any pesky moon to inhibit the viewing
this year. The showers peak will occur on August 12 at 9:00pm EST.
We here on the west coast will have to wait a few more hours but
will still have a nice showing. Estimates are around 60 meteors per
hour with as many as 100 possible which is well over one per minute.
Read the rest.


we’re back

We here at admit-one have just returned from a little vacation
in San Diego. It was overcast every day for the entire week but
that was fine with me as I work outside in the heat at my regular
job. We once again camped at Campland on the Bay located
across Mission Bay north of Sea World.

This year we finally sat in Hodad’s and had the most killer ham-
burgers. Sorry In-n-Out, you have been bested. Hodad’s was
featured on one of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives episodes
called Seaside Eats, Episode DV0206.

Of course I had the Bacon Cheeseburger with rings and a soda.



Ever heard of an ElliptiGo? I hadn’t until yesterday. It looks like a
workout and a half but pretty ingenious. It is simply an elliptical
workout machine taken to it’s next logical step, no pun intended.
With eight speeds this puppy moves out nicely. Watch a few of
their videos and let me know what you think.
