The Day After...

I guess the whole Google Paper thing isn't quite as exciting when it isn't April 1st.
It WAS great while it lasted.

Google has done it AGAIN!

This is JUST the most amazing thing ever.

Check this out, I'll wait until you get back.

Google has finally brought everything full circle. The circle of life of the internet has been linked together forever (or at least until tomorrow).

The have just announced Gmail Paper. If there is ANY email that you want to be printed and delivered they will do it for FREE. It was just in time because I was having SERIOUS problems getting emails to two people in a car club that I belong to.
So I sent a test package to me. It's Sunday morning, 4am the first day of April and I send a copy of the club's insurance policy to myself (remember this is a test).
Now remember this program is still in Beta so they are really trying hard, but I am living way out in the country here. At 9:10 this morning a Ryder truck pulled up to my house and a guy delivers a box with Google stickers on it and there it was, just like I wanted. Amazing! The advertisements are on the BACK of each page, they are red and written in 36 pt Helvetica, but no big deal. Good quality paper, they say that photos will be printed on GLOSSY paper. The soybean sputum paper they use is slightly greasy feeling if you microwave it, but as long as you try not to microwave your paperwork you should be OK. It's FREE! UNLIMITED quantities. This is PERFECT for Beth and I when we head off on our Adventure (destination unknown). I can have postcards and handwritten notes drop-shipped to all of those non computer types that can't read this blog. Google is so cool!

Check out this link:
Thanks, more info tomorrow.

One of two MAJOR goals of this blog is to allow folks to suggest places that we should see.
Most people don't immediately think of all of the things that they think are fun to do, but will think of them when they are reminded of something by someone else. We would like you to add your comments to this page whenever you think of (or find out about) a neato thing to see or a cool place to visit.
Here are some of the ideas that other people have suggested so far:

TX, Amarillo: The helium museum. [Val]
DE, Winterthur: Winterthur Museum & Country Estate [Val]
CA, Senora: The Mighty Marmon Muster [The Marmon Club]
AZ, Sedona: I don't know what is there, but it sure must be impressive. [many people]
NY, Brooklyn, Redhook: Diesel's bar. [for Diesel]
TX, Austin: Threadgill's (for Janis J) [Dr. S]
TN, Memphis: Graceland [Iggy]
TN, Memphis: The Peabody Hotel [Linda]
TN, Memphis: Rendezvous Ribs [Dr. P]
GA, Dawson: The Kangaroo Center
GA, Atlanta: Ann's Snack Bar ("The Best Hamburger in America" per Raymond Sokolov)
NV, Reno: Airplane races in September [someone at the yard sale]
IL, Chicago: The guitar concert (the dang scalpers grabbed the tickets)
NC, Asheville: Just to see if anyone has left yet to make room for us.
FL, Tarpon Springs: Great food [cutomer service phone guy for comcast]
AZ, Tucson: To see how it has grown since 1972
AZ, Tucson: Johnny's Big-Boy (8 hours per night, 7 days a week for $40 plus tips, ahhhh, those were the good old days)( I wonder if Tiny is still at his two stools at the counter, and if he ever got a date with Fran, the waitress that ran everything )
MA, Rowley: The Agawam Diner (very good diner food)
VA, Blacksburg: Pretty Place [T & S]
AZ, Oatman: Shootout at high-noon [Exebec]

Alabama welcomes you all, either before or after the Muster. We will be leaving about a week before getting to Sonora and will take about ten days after the Muster to get home. ronbarn

Mr. President: I tried posting something just a few minutes ago, but I don't think it took. Our thanks to you and the First Lady for gracing our home.The way West? Go west- on I-76 &/or Rt 30. Head through Bedford to Somerset, and there head for Falling Waters, the famous home built by Frank Lloyd Wright over a waterfall in the Pennsylvania mountains. The mountain Laurel should be near full bloom.Be sure to give everyone in california our best; and stop here, and/or in Florida on your way back. Have a great trip.

There are bunches of chain barbeque restaurants in St. Louis so I wanted to send you to one that ain't. This is supposed to be good from a show I saw on the Food Network. It's called Phils Bar-B-Que (636-938-6575) but it's down off of Rt. 44 at 115 W 5th St in Eureka, Mo. But the map shows it right off Rt 44. I put that at about 15-20 minutes from St. Louis downtown. Go back to Rt 64 after dinner to head up to Rt 70 if'n that's yer plan.Later

Ok Warren, if you guys are going to Tarpon Springs, you simply have to go to the sponge docks, when Tiff and I went to visit mom in FL, she took us there, they have all these really great Greek shops and awesome Greek food and bakeries the desserts are to die for) and at the end of the docks is a simply fabulous aquarium
