How can an ugly dumpster become a beautiful princess of a bbq and partyin' down tailgate rig? I asked +Chris Nixon who designed and built it, and served up some amazing bbq at the rigs coming out party. I saw this gorgeous beauty at the Texas OSU tailgate area on Saturday, October 15 and plan to blog in detail about it on http://spring.net if Chris Nixon will do an interview with me. I'm voting for this as the years outstanding tailgate bbq rig.

I was just getting out of Nike Training class with Meryl C at RSC near Belmont Hall when I saw the long stream of UT players heading toward the UT tower where the rally was going to be held. It was a tough choice, dance class or the rally. I got swept away by the emotions of the rally and I happened to have my iphone camera handy. I got what I hope you'll enjoy are shots of the team, the torch girl, the cheerleaders, Coach Brown and the fans.

Wednesday night thousands of Longhorns fans gathered for the annual pep rally at The University of Texas before this weekend's football game against the University of Oklahoma. The Torchlight Parade started in 1916 and was a tradition that lasted through the late 1960s. The parade started at 8 p.m. at 25th Street and Whitis Street , and the rally at 8:30 p.m. took place on the mall in front of the UT Tower. Third-ranked Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) and No. 11 Texas (4-0, 1-0) meet Saturday in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Asked how Google+ plans to police the network for authentic and inauthentic users, Mr. Prosser said it is taking a few different approaches. If companies notice that a logo or profile is being improperly used, it can report the profile to Google, which will respond with what it calls a "soft takedown." The user will be given a few days to change the name or appeal the finding before Google takes further action, but even if the person is found guilty there won't be other ramifications; it won't shut down Gmail or other services for the user.

Texas should hold a special session and restore the volunteer firefighter funding it stripped away in the last session. Shouldn't it be obvious that we need to reward the courage and hard work these folks have done for us in the recent wildfires? Either Governor Perry or Lt Governor Dewhurst should sign an emergency order or the Legislature needs to reconvene and do this.

This was the scene today at the Bastrop Convention Center where folks came to get an update of the fires, get water and sports drinks, and, more importantly, get comfort, aid and consoling. The fires have been devastating. Nearly 2,000 homes have been destroyed.

I went and volunteered today and attended the press conference at the Bastrop Convention Center. I was real lucky, I mean real lucky, that my two homes on 15 acres weren't hit by the Union Chapel fire which is now contained. I have a video and some pix from today that I'll post as soon as I can get them off my SD card. I'll be back tomorrow to try and help out and I'm making some homes I have in Cedar Creek available to those displaced by the fires. I hear the winds may pick up again tomorrow.

I'm getting conflicting reports from the wildfire hotline in Bastrop about the status of our homes in Cedar Creek, one operator says "all clear, go home" and the other says "off limits, no containment". I'll make an excursion to Cedar Creek in 3 hours to see if our homes are still standing or not. It's been a sleepless night at the condo in Austin.

When I left during yesterday's evacuation I had a flat tire on Highway 71. No less than 3 people rushed to where I was on the side of the road offering help and one guy was back in 10 minutes with 3 cans of fix a flat which gave me enough juice to make it to the tire repair place. It really feels like folks are caring for each other in this Texas wildfire crisis.

A 14-year study conducted by the American Cancer Society concluded that those who sit for greater than 6 hours per day had a higher mortality rate than those who sat less. "Prolonged time spent sitting, independent of physical activity, has been shown to have important metabolic consequences, and may influence things like triglycerides, high density lipoprotein, cholesterol, fasting plasma glucose, resting blood pressure, and leptin, which are biomarkers of obesity and cardiovascular and other chronic diseases," said Dr. Alpa Patel, the study’s leader.

As technology has made our lives easier, we find more and more of our jobs to be behind desks on computers, phones and doing paperwork.á Sadly, sittin…

Some good tips here on using Google+

For example:

Holding down the “Shift” key on your keyboard while dragging people between circles, preserves your selection.

You probably know that to copy people from circle A to circle B, you open circle A ("View circle in tab"), select the people you want to copy, then drag them to circle B. But if you shift-drag your selection from circle A to circle B, the selection remains intact after it's copied into circle B. You can then click "Remove" to remove them from circle A.

End result: you've moved the selected people from circle A to circle B!

This is a very well written and postive view of Google+ and why it might be highly successful.

Author Jason Hiner thought Google+ was going to be a wham-bam-thank-you-m'am moment like other Google social network misfires but instead he conclude that "Damn, was I wrong. After almost a week, I fully expect this Google+ thing to turn into a long-term relationship. I mean, we’re not buying matching workout suits or anything yet, but this is definitely more than just a crush on the hot, new thing."

After a series of failed attempts at social networking, Google may have nailed it with Google+. See why and how it could have a major impact on the fu

This video is me talking with a couple of other Google+ers about Austin's controversial Formula One track on a Google+ hangout. It was a struggle to make my first video podcast using Google+ Hangout, but I got a lot of ideas how to improve this in the future. I ordered a green screen on amazon and should get it in a few days. I'll use it to generate a more imaginative background. It would be fun to record 10 minutes out of a Trey Ratcliff hangout session, they rock!

Our first podcast using the Google+ Hangout feature is a discussion of Austin’s controversial Formula One racetrack, which is getting $25 million in corporate welfare from the State of Texas. It w…

It was a disastrous first day in the Tour de France with two huge crashes. Cadel Evans got a big jump on his rivals for the Yellow by escaping the crash.

The Contador group rolled in 1'20" off the pace. Cadel Evans will be a very, very happy man today. He's managed to put over a minute into Contador on what should have been an innocuous opening stage.

rally for Wisconsin at TX Capitol

AUSTIN – Springnet — Demonstrators in Austin, Texas showed their support for the protests in Wisconsin by holding an energetic rally at the state Capitol. Several hundred protesters attended the event in Austin Saturday, Feb 26, 2011.

The pro-union crowd sang folk songs and carried placards criticizing budget cuts in Texas and blasting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to eliminate collective bargaining rights for state employees.

Liberal commentator and onetime Texas Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower, wearing a trademark white cowboy hat, said he was happier than “a flea at a dog show” after seeing the hundreds gathered outside the Capitol. He said progressive voters had become too complacent.
