Two words. That's $2.00. Right? That's how it works, right?

*** Lloyd Champagne Stenquist asks “Where are we” regarding my Facebook profile photo (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/profile.php?id=594469602):

This was a year ago in Wyoming. Tom and I participated in a service project called ArrowCorps5. We were working from a remote camp in the Gros Ventre Valley. Those mountains you can just see on the horizon are the Grand Tetons.

Check out: http://www.scoutingmagazine.org/issues/0905/a-good.html

This wasn't my crew on the raft (Tom and I went to Yellowstone on our “day off.” But this was our work crew breaking up the off-road track so it can revert to wilderness, and the comments about “walking the barbed wire” through the willow swamp was also our crew. I spent quite some time talking to writer Jordan Rane when he was at our work site where we were obliterating the ATV trail..

*** Disruptive advertising:

I saw this term yesterday, and I have never heard of it before: Disruptive advertising.

First, congrats on listening to the Kings of Leon. You retain your title of “Coolest Old Guy.”

Second, isn't it “boom shaka laka laka,” not “boom laka laka laka?” And was it editor's choice to use the 2nd verse of the song, not the 1st?
