2011 Ford Explorer - First Ride - Truck Trend
“After patiently sitting through Ford Motor Company's look-but-don't-drive preview, we doubted whether the car-based 2011 Explorer really deserved its name. Read about the 2011 Ford Explorer as it travels through Dubai in this article brought to you by the truck and SUV experts at Truck Trend.”

Nissan Confirms Murano Convertible - Car and Driver Blog
“While introducing its surprising and fun Versa-based Juke crossover, Nissan confirmed that it will build another vehicle that is bound to be equally as bizarre and fun: the long-rumored Murano convertible. Beyond that, Nissan declined to provide any details such as whether it would be a full or partial convertible, if it will have a fabric or hard top, or if it will have a basket-handle roll bar or if any of the existing roof pillars will remain in place to help meet government rollover safety requirements. Also unclear is to what extent cargo and/or seating capacity will differ from that of the standard Murano, which has been refreshed for the 2011 model year. Nissan did say, however, that we will get our first look at the convertible this fall at the Los Angeles auto show.”
Using the trip meter in the car, I measured 0.3 miles from where my car was parked to the Roving Imp Theater. I traveled a distance of 0.3 miles in 10 minutes, so I was walking at 1.8 miles per hour.
World-Beating World-Car
“Small cars have always been held in lower esteem. ‘They’re cramped and cheap,’ everyone used to say. Put those people in a Chevy Cruze, however, and you'll likely get a stunned silence instead. With a global team working on it, the Cruze is an exceptional car that's comfortable anywhere, built to high standards and filled with premium materials. Its compact dimensions make it maneuverable and economical the world over, and the Cruze logged 4,000,000 miles while under development, more than most cars and a testament to Chevrolet’s commitment to leading the segment with the 2011 Cruze.”

“As much as some of us may love anime there are characters we will find annoying. There are characters that just annoy us every time we see them on screen to no end!

“Is there a big market for SUVs in Europe? For some reason I thought SUVs were only popular in America and I always associated SUVs with America.

What do you know 001

Congratulations, Nifer Honeycutt! Never stop to rage your dream!

“ ♫ You have a power to shine
Shining like the clear sky ♫ ”

John asked me to stop narrating to the new potential student for Level One, like your girlfriend.

“The Johnson County Community College men’s soccer program has another former player who has made his way to the professional ranks. Lucas Rodriguez, a member of the Cavaliers’ 2004 and 2005 teams, was signed earlier this summer by the NSC Minnesota Stars in the USSL Division II Pro League. Rodriguez is the 11th former player to play professional soccer, and the first under head coach Fatai Ayoade.

A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina and graduate of Shawnee Mission West High School, Rodriguez earned both NJCAA and NSCA All-America honors his sophomore at JCCC, becoming just the second player to earn both honors. He also earned NJCAA All-Region VI first-team, NSCAA All-Region first-team and Kansas Jayhawk Conference first-team honors in 2005. Rodriquez finished second on the team in goals with 12, assists with six and points with 30 in 2005. He led the team with five game winning goals, including the game winner over Barton County in the Region VI title game. The Cavaliers finished the 2005 campaign with a 17-7 record and runner-up finish in the District Playoffs.

Rodriguez completed his collegiate eligibility at MidAmerica Nazarene University. In his senior year, Rodriguez helped his team win the Heart of America Athletic Conference Championship and finish the season ranked No. 16. He was named the HAAC’s Most Valuable Player, HAAC first-team and garnered NAIA third-team All-America honors.”
In effect, Nifer has turned pro as well, but only after years of personal hell and years of hard work to hone her prodigious wit and to prove her immense talent. I verified, after searching and reviewing the messages in my Google Mail, that Nifer auditioned for The Second City Training Center - Chicago on Friday, June 4, and was accepted by The Second City in Chicago on Wednesday, June 9, 2010.
I said WHEN rather than IF.
Just as the combined casts of Omega Directive and One traveled via the MegaBus to Chicago for the Chicago Improv Festival, Nifer likewise made the journey each week for her class. Denton observed on Thursday:
“If you start at Second City, then you move to Chicago.”
This week, Nifer did move to Chicago, and I was informed Thursday morning. Although I may have accepted this premise, if only at a near-unconscious level, yesterday I found difficulty coming to terms with the inevitability, and the suddenness hurt, a lot. Christopher Hurt has had enough true-life allegories for one day, thank you.
Christopher Hurt did not realize how much Christopher Hurt is beginning to sound like Bob Dole, at least on NetworkedBlogs. The perceptions of Christopher Hurt were correct: Christopher Hurt ‘moat’ have said too much on one of the status updates of Nifer.
Christopher Hurt ‘moat’ have been mulling over a ‘moat’ point, and ‘moat’ have forgotten what was ‘moat’ in the first place. Julie ‘moat’ have been able to stop this at some time in the past.
Christopher Hurt is enjoying the spill-over benefit of the day: doughnuts.

Watch the Record Industry Die « JCCC Library Blog
“When an entire industry refuses to adapt to technology and greed pushes artistry into the backseat, you can end up with the cautionary tale of the record industry. In Steve Knopper’s Appetite for Self-Destruction, the author traces the creation of CDs, digital music distribution, and the iTunes model. Read how downloading didn’t kill the record industry as much as poor decisions made by company executives did.”

What do you know 000

Christopher Hurt now understands that all of those family dramas, which his family watches on T.V., are supposed to re-enforce the value of family... oh...
Oops — you’ve made a Freudian slip. What’s the technical term for a slip of the tongue? ...
“It’s one thing to make a typo on your resume, but we know of a worse kind of mistake: calling your boy or girlfriend the name of a previous paramour. Or perhaps you’re talking to your boss and out of your mouth pops an obscene word that rhymes with what you meant to say.”
“JCCC was named today to the 2011 list of Military Friendly Schools by GI Jobs, a veteran-owned magazine. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students.

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list includes efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools.

‘Military students bring a high degree of maturity, life experiences, diversity, leadership and worldliness to the classroom. Other students and faculty benefit from the different perspectives that service members and veterans bring,’ said Terry A. Calaway, JCCC president.

JCCC has a Veterans Services office, staffed full time by Kena Zumalt, Veterans Administration adviser, who serves as the VA certifying official and oversees a staff of three VA workstudy students. The office serves active, reserve and retired military as well as dependents.

‘This list is especially important now because the Post-9/11 GI Bill has given veterans virtually unlimited financial means to go to school,’ said Rich McCormack, G.I. Jobs publisher. ‘Veterans can now enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified. So schools are clamoring for them like never before. Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated. The Military Friendly Schools list is that trusted friend.’

A full story and detailed list of Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools and on a poster, both of which will be distributed to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in late September.

The newly redesigned website, found at, features interactive tools and search functionality to assist military veterans in choosing schools that best meet their personal educational needs. The site currently shows 2010 Military Friendly Schools but will switch to the 2011 list in late September.”

I missed the party
