STATE FURR

STATE FURR
“I like the way you do that right thurr.”
– Chingy

With apologies to Chingy, we are probably going to the State “Furr” on Saturday, and I’m sure the weather is going to cooperate. Since I probably won’t be hauling my old butt on any of those freakish midway rides, I might just take my camera and post some pics here. Maybe I can get Kevin to take his instead.

A letter to the paper this morning made me laugh. A woman and her family from Waco decided to go to the fair and were shocked, disappointed and dismayed that there was an extra charge to get into the museums on the fairgrounds. What planet has she been on? They have always had an extra charge for those things, as I recall. Besides, if you’re going to the fair to visit a museum, you’ve kind of missed the whole point – they won’t let you take corny dogs and cotton candy in there! Hello!

By the way, the Budweiser Oktoberfest is not worth it, imo. Yes, you get a small sample of beer at the end, but you have to sit through 30 minutes of what amounts to a Bud commercial before you get any. I think I’ll head over to the wine tasting instead.

Now that I have my DVD burner up and running on the Mac, I was playing around with imovie and it kept crashing when I tried to add an audio clip to my project. After some detective work, i found a post on an Apple forum that suggested I look for any extra codecs installed for QuickTime. Sure enough, there was a DivX codec and a couple of others. So, I just dragged those out of the library and it works like a charm now. Stupid computers.
