MAC support from Friends

I am pretty sure I have a few mates that read this that are avid MAC users.  I have a few questions for my 12" ibook.

1) When I click on a url inside of my mail program (Thunderbird) – it opens up Safari (a browser that I do not use) – I would like it to default to Firefox – how?

2) When I click on a mailto: linkin firefox – it defaults to Apple’s mail program – I would like it to goto Thunderbird – how?

Any help would be appreciated. 🙂

Positive Thinking can Aid Healing: Duh

Article Link
I think most people know this.  If I am about to get sick, you know – you can feel your body weakening – some postive thinking or simply telling that shit to just fuck-off sometimes does the trick.  Anyway – good to be reminded of it.

BootsnAll in New York Times and Todd Bell

BootsnAll we featured in a NY Times article today.  Also, I am enjoying and glad to see all the stories below my Todd Bell passing post from back in March.  I of course, did not know him personally – the stories folks are telling are kewl – it’s great to read the stories of a man’s life…and he is remembered fondly outside of football.  Nice.

Thanksgiving Blog Stuff

Been waking up at 5 am the past 5 days and I love it.  I get lots done, and have more energy for the day.  I am thankful for that.  Other stuff that i am thankful for…

1) Family:  Thanks for being my blood, being my friend and doing stuff that families do – except our family does it with vigor and cuz we want to, not because it’s family

2) Friends:  I feel like I have a lot of friends and good vibe acquaintances.  Thanks to all of you for being my friend, making fun of me, and letting me make fun of you.  Thanks for doing stuff, inviting me to stuff, and being honest with me when I am a jagg off.

3) Weather and the world:  I just love it – cold, rain, hot, snow, ice, wind, no wind – whatever, trees – desert – all the different stuff in this world just blows me away.  There are so many people and things going on and paths to potentially take…I don’t even know how to express what I am thinking/feeling on this one.

4) World Community: The world is full of stuff – so much of it beautiful, some of it not so beautiful.  Sometimes I see a not so nice thing – and it can turn into something beatiful as well…Nick described it last night on our walk back from "Walk the Line" as this.

No matter what happens to me – even if my best friends burnt my house down – and did it on purpose – some folks might view that is a pretty bad thing – hold a grudge for the rest of your life etc…Nick suggested if that guy came back to you a year later or whenever – and was good vibes and truly wanted to be his friend – and he could sense the change in attitude – no bullshit – he would.  I like that type of thinking – grudges and getting super pissed off at everything and staying in that vibe – I reckon is not the healthiest thing (even though these feeling often help drive a situation).

So – here’s to peace, understanding, friendship and forgiving/letting old bad things go.

Having said that – If I was stranded on a desert island (Isn’t there a TV show about this) – with limited resources and some other people – would I still be thinking like this?

Your Edge: Step outside your comfort zone

“If you stand in the center, you will never be amazed. You will safely see
what you have already seen, know what you already know. You will never
start a fire in the mind of another or be party to the exuberant chaos of
invention. But if you are bold – if you step to the edge – you can unlock
the embrace of the familiar and open your mind to the daring notions of
others. When you venture to the perimeter of your understanding, your eyes
widen, your senses sharpen, your intellect becomes more agile”. -unknown

We talk a lot about getting outside your comfort zone – wheather it is work, travel – whatever. Great quote. (thanks for sending JR)

We we are Fat Arses

The morning she arrived at a college in rural Illinois from a sister school in Japan, Naomi Moriyama was offered a glass of orange juice so big her eyes widened in amazement. How, the 19-year-old scholarship student wondered, could anyone possibly drink so much orange juice?

Portions in the school cafeteria, she would discover in short order, were "almost freakishly huge" – "piles of waffles soaked in oceans of syrup, flanked by boatloads of eggs and bacon" for breakfast, giant cheeseburgers, fries and soft drinks at lunch and, at dinner, "mountains of meat and potatoes, heaps of pasta and pizzas so big I could skate on them.

Civil War: Why I did not go?


I woke up at 5 am this morning, after having gone to bed at 9 am sharp last nite.  After running around like a headless chicken the past few weeks, I decided to give up my ticket to the Oregon v Oregon State game.  Sorry to all my friends/tailgating party folks – I know they are pissed at me.  I just had to stay home and get some stuff done like working out, work, budgets, rake the leaves…and the game hasn’t even started yet.  Still more time to giterdone!  So I will be there is spirit cheering on the Ducks.  Hope we can still be friends. 🙂

Just received the above picture via text of Ioan and Dewey from Donelle.
