Mike's Christmas Wish List

My updated list...(2008)

- Bobby McFerrin & Chick Corea dvd, "Rendezvous in New York"

- A Monopod (like these): mainly, one that is light-weight and packable

- Cd's - note: buy them used if at all possible! All I do is burn them on my computer once, and then play them from don't buy the new ones. What I want: Keane album (either "Under the Iron Sea" or "Perfect Symmetry" or both), a U2 album - some type of "greatest hits" album, preferably from the 80's and 90's I think (songs like "40," "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," etc - I just don't own any U2 so I want a cd or two with some of their best hits), I'm really into Jack Johnson but I have 3 of his albums already - these are the albums I DO have (Brushfire Fairytales, On & ON, Sleep Through the Static)

- DVD's: The Bourne Trilogy, The Matrix (1st movie only),

- Xbox Games I'm interested in (GET THEM USED): Call of Duty 2, Tiger Woods golf (whatever the last version was they released for the xbox...probably '07 or maybe '08)

- Love gift cards; especially "Taco Lobo," "Starbucks or Woods Coffee," "Robecks," or something new...

- Other ideas: anything from REI, really.

Cast Your Vote

Is the "best picture" of a mushroom, still just a dumb picture of a mushroom? Or is it a great shot? Who knows! What do you think?

Soar like an...UPDATED (click on the flying eagle, get a bigger pic)

This summer Julie and I made it up to Point Roberts. In case you don't know, Point Roberts is this littls spit of land that you have to drive through Canada to get to. At any rate, the Eagle photos are from that trip. The racoon, (bottom), lives in our backyard. We gave him a few names; "Rudy" or "Bandit" or "Racoon." At any rate, haven't seen him around in awhile.
