Exo-Planet found in Habitable Zone

This is amazing (if not totally unexpected) it seems like the first Earth-like planet orbiting within the cushy Goldilocks zone has been spotted. I know that at the moment we have no telescopes that can see it or probes that can make the 20 light year trip over there, but I would love to get a glimpse of Gliese 581g.

Here are some links:


Here's a cool interview with discoverer Steve Vogt:

I'm 32!

I turned 32 today! Man, time is going by so fast. Basically I spent all weekend eating and celebrating my birthday... having a huge breakfast at Cracker Barrel, devouring burgers at Fudrucker's Saturday. Marge's mom made some awesome tacos on Sunday.

I got an external hard drive for all my pictures and DVD boxsets of Fringe and Big Bang Theory... all I need now it time to watch them.

Family Portrait

We finally caved and decided to get one of those cheesy family portraits done at the JCPenny Studio, which turned out really well, the photographer was really nice and patient (since Sophie wasn't having any of it) and the pics came out great. It's nice to have pictures of the three of us. Usually one of us is missing cause we're taking the pic.

Sophie's Baptism

I'm not particularly religious but Marge is and there was no doubt that Sophie was going to be Baptized Catholic. I really liked the ceremony though and she behaved absolutely wonderful. (We thought she was going to wail the whole time like Damien in the Omen.)
