 I want this to be a place where I can point people to whenever I need to give out information about myself, things I'm involved with, social events, and anything else I'm interested in.   We'll see how long it lasts.  -Allen

  • Tired of the time it takes to transfer money into your ING account (or any account?)  I've found that an externally initiated transfer works much faster - see details at ING Transfer Hack
  • Want to change the ready message on the line display of the HP laser printer in your office?  See the hack and download an app to do it at HP Ready Message Hack
  • I've recently gotten hooked on editing the Peachtree Corners Wiki (www.ourpeachtreecorners.com), which is beginning to get more and more interest.
  • I opened a GMAC Savings Account, it pays 4.6% interest, and only requires a $500 minnimum. It's actually a Money Market account, so they give you checks, and an ATM card (with ATM fee reimbursement).
  • ScanGwinnett is a cool site where you can listen to the actual police, fire, and emergency scanners. Whenever I hear a siren in the area, I turn it on. There's also a link to other Atlanta Area county sites. And if you're really into it, there's http://www.atlantascanner.com/, where you can buy a comprehensive resource listing scanner info for all of Atlanta.


Latest News

Latest Everett News:

- Ok, so it's been a while since I updated this list, I let Jean take care of the updating at  Our Blog.  I'm currently refinishing a bunk bed for Everett to graduate into, to make room for his little brother / sister coming in April.

-Everett is officially a crawler (6/1/06). Time to start baby proofing the house.

- Here's a video of Everett's latest Performance.

- He's 9 Months old today (5/9/06). At his doctors appointment, he weighed 20 lbs and was 30 inches long, which are 50 and 95% percentile, respectively. Tall and Skinny.

- The past few weeks, Everett has been very eager to grab my hands so he can pull himself up to standing. He hasn't quite figured out the whole crawling thing, but he can tuck his left leg behind him and scoot to get to a slightly out of reach toy. (5/8/06)

- Some how he managed to take his shirt half way off last night.(4/11/06)

- Everett's finally over his sore throat and cough, just a little runny nose left. He's back to his happy self.

- He's figured out how to drench the bathroom at bath time, he's now a vigorous splasher.

Curent Home Projects:

- Renovating Downstairs Bathroom (I really suck at installing molding) - DONE
- Painting the entire interior + changing wood trim to white. Upstairs, stairwell, foyer done, currently working on dining room and living room. DONE (5/15/06) On to the Den, then the Office .
- Repaired upstairs toilet Flush Valve - Much bigger job than I anticipated. Plus I found out that we use around 4 Gallons of water per flush!
