Summer Series of Extreme Croquet: Week #1 (my house)

That's right the Summer Series of Extreme Croquet is about to begin.

And for the first week I have decided to host the tournament at my very own house... which technically means my parents house.

Here is a link to the sweet google map if you would like it.
Map to first venue

We'll start around 7:00
and everyone is welcome.

(especially if you have croquet balls Ü)

Friday 29 May.

Summer Series of Extreme Croquet

It seems fitting to me that there be a Summer Series of Extreme Croquet. I'm thinking Friday's but that is not firm yet.

So here's the concept... Every Friday we pick a venue, then we play some Extreme Croquet.
Anybody can come... and nobody is obligated.

I will post the details either here or on , or perhaps both.

Bring a friend, bring a date, bring a raisin... I don't care.

Come to play or to watch, or whatever,

Feel free to bring your own croquet mallet, if you have one that you think is lucky,
or even an extra set, if you feel so inclined.

Bring a chair or a blanket, or a beverage, or anything that will contribute to anyone's enjoyment.
(and that includes you) Ü

Do I Have the Swine Flu?

Chances are you don't. This pandemic is likely to kill less people than... well anything,
but even if you did, I wouldn't know how to tell.

I've heard that people running a fever over 100 should check it out, but really, I think we're going to survive it... at least this time around.

But if you're interested in it, this map is decent.
Swine Flu

And While I may not be much help with things like the Swine flu,
I do know something about that other nasty virus

Yeah it's much more likely that you were infected by this one. Way more likely that you were infected... unless you own a mac, and then I'd probably faint if you were infected, afterall, Macs are naturally antiseptic. No seriously.

But regardless, conficker is out there, and you may already have won. The big questions are
1) How do you know?
2) What to do if you did get it?

So how do you know?
If it was me I would follow this link...
It's not perfect, but it's a nice place to start.
It will take you to a link that should show you six separate pictures.
If they all down load, then you probably don't have it.

If you do have it... then
try this link

Get well soon.

A Few (Happens to Be Five) Commencement Speeches

A shout out to all the Graduates,

Here are some of my nice Commencement Addresses that I have found enjoyable, and/or valuable. I would have included my own, (not me speaking... Me graduating, but I don't know if it was recorded, but it was good).
