11yr old drummer - ROCKS!

Sure I've always been a Dream Theater fan.
And sure, I think Mike Portnoy is one of the best drummers ever.
But, even if neither of those things were true -- THIS  young man is awesome.

Time Flies

This video creeps me out.
If 8 dead flies can power a clock for 12 days, what will the world use other organisms for in the future?

Turning the consumption of organisms into electricity sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Little People

This is such a fascinating art form.

Check out the rest of the bunch at the Little People Project Blog
MAKE SURE you check out the archives -- these creations go back years, so there are A LOT.

I just can't get enough of these little guys and gals.

Look closely...the stranded couple are in the puddle

Can you see the little dudes?

There's a VIDEO on the artist's blog showing this being created

Hope he's got a BIG wallet!

Are you paying the IRS too much money?

Here are some interesting facts I found on the Dave Ramsey site:

According to the U.S. Government
  • Over $1 billion is overpaid to the IRS
  • 2.2 million people overpay taxes
  • 61% of homeowners miss deductions
The IRS does make mistakes
  • Incorrectly accuses thousands of owing money
  • Mistakenly keeps an average of $438 of standard deductions

Research shows that a lot of those people overpaying the IRS are Americans who go to less-than-qualified tax professionals to get their taxes done.
So, my friends, please take the time to do your homework before deciding who gets to do your taxes.
Going to someone just because they do your taxes cheap may be costing you money in the long run
