I've been slack in finding interesting photo opportunities lately. I haven't taken any pictures yet today so when we arrived home and I received the latest issue of Time I decided to make it my picture of the day. On a side note I am continuing to enjoy my subscription to Time. It was money well spent.

Ted and I watched Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian this evening and many of the scenes reminded me of our trip in October 2007 to Washington DC. Washington has long been one of my favorite cities. The city has such great energy and the history and culture are hard to beat. Abraham Lincoln had a role in the movie and I thought I would share a picture of the Lincoln Memorial from our trip.

Tonight was our 5th training walk for the American Heart Association Heart Walk. Louise mapped a great 2.5 mile walk along State Street in Santa Barbara. We are increasing our training walk lengths to get ready for the 5k in October.

I bought this CD for Ted last weekend but unfortunately it is the edited version which bleeps out curse words. Fortunately Ted noticed that before we opened it so I will be able to return it. I can't imagine what an Eminen CD sounds like with all of the foul language bleeped out. I can't imagine there are many words left.

The other day my friend Pat and I were talking about Crayola crayons and she brought in this collectors tin she purchased a number of years ago when Crayola reissued boxes containing their original 8 colors: blue gray, green blue, lemon yellow, maize, orange red, orange yellow, raw umber, and violet blue.

My friend Kitty lent me this performance CD of David Sedaris. I am a big fan of David's sister Amy Sedaris (she starred in the hilarious Strangers With Candy) but I just recently learned about David's work from Kitty who lent me this CD of his show at Carnegie Hall. His observations and commentary is hilarious and I particularly appreciate that David grew up in Raleigh, NC which is 1 1/2 hours east of where I grew up. I look forward to listening to/reading more of David's work.

Ted and I went to Pismo Beach this afternoon to eat at Mo's and spend some time at the beach. It was a bit windy while we were there so it cut our beach time short. Even though we couldn't handle the wind there were plenty of people on the beach and several surfers in the water.

Today was Zach Galifianakis day. First we saw Dinner For Schmucks in the theater then we watched Youth in Revolt at home. Ted and I first saw Zach in The Hangover, a movie we both love. When I Googled Zach I was pleasantly surprised to learn he was born and raised in western North Carolina. Funny guy.

After work Ted and I headed to downtown Santa Barbara to enjoy Fiesta. Our main objective was to eat and we did not hold back. We ate taquitos, tamales, and pozole; all delicious. After dinner we enjoyed the entertainment of the band Georgetown featuring Lois Mahalia. We had no expectation of enjoying the band and we ended up having a great time. They played lots of great tunes we like including songs by Bob Marley.

Picture #3: I bought several painted eggs filled with confetti and I cracked one over Callie's head. She was barely amused.

All of the employees who volunteered at United Way Fun in the Sun a few weeks ago received a mug of goodies during our company's staff meeting today. The goodies include a note pad, a key chain, a pen, and a tape measure/level. It was nice to be recognized for our service.

My company's Heart Walk team raised $765 for the American Heart Association (AHA) by selling casual day stickers. I met with an AHA rep this morning to turn in the donation and the rep gave me these Life Savers and said, "you are a life saver." How clever.
