Not missing a beat, our eldest said, "That's pretty old."

I will not bother to review the box itself; Google it and you will find enough reviews. The small box by Roku allows you to watch movies from there instant selection on your TV over your high speed Internet connection. The biggest advantage for me is that I no longer will have to fill my DVD queue with documentaries for the kids. The current biggest disadvantage is the lack of currently available movies, but that will change over time. At the price of $100, it makes a great deal, if you have Netflix already.

This same type of thing happened a few years ago. Though it was reported that no National secrets were taken last time, some websites reported that the information that was copied held lists of Chinese dissidents and political contacts. I wonder what happened to those people on the lists? Gotta love politics.

When two sisters' mother is hospitalized, the family moves to the Japanese countryside spend the summer. The sisters find their new environment to be full of people, creatures and a trio of furry woodland sprites who can only be seen by children.
This movie, like all Hayao Miyazaki movies, seems to capture the thoughts, actions and fantasies of children perfectly. One of my favorite parts is the beginning, when they first move into their country home. The sisters are running all over the house and explore all the rooms of the house. Reminds me of any kids moving into a new house.

Another car video. You will have to bear with me as I play with these, but I just set the camera up and still like playing with it. At some point I will just post when crazy things happen. I rendered this at 4x speed so if you watch the timer you will see how long it took to drive this part of my commute. Contrary to the belief of some that posted comments, I drive at a sane speed for around here.

This video is a short clip at 3x speed from my commute home. Please forgive the red on the video, when the sun hits the camera directly that tends to happen.
