    Greetings all! I got back from a much needed vacation the other day and if anyone gets the chance to go to Virginia make a stop at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg!!! It's my (and my wife's) 2nd time there but we took our son and my mother & brother in-laws' too for their 1st time. Lots of great coasters and adventure rides, plenty of things to see and do, and best of all since it's owned by Anheuser Busch you can buy beer inside the park and walk around with it! You can grab a beer before getting in line for a ride and by the time you get to the front you're done and ready to roll!

    [face_laugh] That's my kind of amusement park. Just don't have too many before you climb on a coaster or you might not enjoy the been for too long. ;)

    The wife and I are going to take the kids out to Six Flags this summer. They have some new kids stuff based on The Wiggles and Thomas the Train that should be right up their alley.

    Did anyone see the article in the news the other day about the toy (still in development/testing stage) that picks up your brainwaves and uses your mind to control an object? The test involves using this device to power-up a lightsaber! With the proper thought the saber activates, but if your mind starts to wander the saber will deactivate. Here's the link for the article with the name of the company: [link=http://blogs.pcworld.com/gameon/archives/004276.html]Virtual Lightsaber[/link]

    A fight at a rock concert? Quite common. A fight @ a Boston Pops performance? Now that's news! [face_laugh]

    Saw my second R2 mailbox last weekend. My wife works for Philips and they had an employees party at the MOS. When my wife went out for a cigarette break, we ran into an old friend. Sh took my picture with it but unfortunately it was with her phone camera and the picture did not come out very well. :(

    There's an R2 mailbox at the Pheasant Lane mall in my neck of the woods, Nashua, NH. It's right outside of the mall entrance near Target.

    If they develop this, you could see things like iPods, cellphones, and laptops recharged or even powered wirelessly. And to think it's being done right here in Boston. :D
