CNN/Youtube Debate Last Monday - This debate was probably the best I've ever seen. It wasn't a bunch of questions had tuned to how the media wanted to swing the debate but honest questions by real people. The answers were fun to watch.

Toledo Meeting in Second Life - There was a post a while back about Second Life and possible having people from Toledo meeting there for fun. I just installed it tonight, and a little confused over it's concept. It's a nifty world of sorts, but not sure how to get off "Orientation Island" no way to specify a server or meeting place.

Microsoft is Data mining TT - Was curious if my blog or subpages showed up in any of the search engines, even though I have them setup to not be indexed. Luckily google and others have respected my wishes, while looking I noticed I did pop up in live.com.

Seeking Dog Help - I bought a pooch from the Tiffin pound about 3 or so weeks ago. At first he seemed really love able and good. Though my girlfriend and I are at wits end, trying to figure out what to do. This is really my first dog and I love him, but I dont want to have to give him up without at least trying my best first.

Botanical Gardens - Reason #101 why Toledo is great. It was beautiful out today so I thought it would be a perfect time to go to the Botanical Gardens for my first time. Like normal I was equipped with my camera and took many pictures.

River East dispute property - Interesting read, just find it odd they only had to pay $1 a year to rent this property. Both sides have valid points. If River East did spend so much in renovations then they deserve something. Then again I can understand the cities view, they broke the contract. I find it sad that even though they were given a contact to rent at only $1 a year, in 24 years they still didnt pay it. Yet soaked up all the money by subleasing it to small businesses.

147 Students wont graduate - I was reading the paper during lunch and noticed the front page article. Apparently a lot of students in the area won't be able to graduate due to not passing the ohio graduate exam.

Primary in Florida might not count. - "No delegates would be awarded based upon the results and instead party activists and insiders would decide on some later date how to divvy up the state's more than 200 delegates to the Democratic national convention."
