"Are you Hip to Be Square?"

Enjoy Huey Lewis's Hip to be Square Video.

Remember, when Four Squares was something you played at recess, it is not just for kids anymore.  Now a new way to try many new things.  A social networking app you put on your cell and then let the fun begin.

We have been using Foursquare for about a month.  We are having fun doing what we do on the weekends... mostly, eating, day tripping, and drinking coffee.  We get to log our time at each place we visit and get badges for different kinds of check-ins.  We went Crazy in Boston, MA., our first weekend.  We even check-in, when we go to get our daughter from college on the weekends.

I told my daughter to sign-up with her friends and they can get free gear if they sign-up for the ambassador program.

See the article below from on the new University Badges.

Foursquare has just announced that its “Foursquare for Universities” program is now available at every college and university around the world.
Foursquare’s collegiate checkins program began about a year ago with a partnership with Harvard. At the time, the idea behind the partnership was to help students connect with colleagues, friends and professors through the app and to help campus visitors find their way around interesting and useful on-campus locations.
Now, university badges will be available at any campus around the world. Also, all students are encouraged to sign up for the startup’s ambassador program, which will give participants free Foursquare gear and tools for spreading the word about the location app.
The standard university badges (pictured in order below) include Bookworm Bender (for checking into a library or study area after midnight), Smells Like School Spirit (for five checkins to a sports venue), Quad Squatter (for 10 checkins at a common area), Munchies (for checkins at five separate campus dining facilities), and College Explorer (for checkins to any 10 different campus locations).

Bone Scan: I guess...I am crazy?

I had a Bone Scan today, this is not my first time, twice in 6 years. I went to the hospital was injected with radioactive material. I was told to come back in two hours no restriction on activity or food consumption. I went to the store than to eat. Just before, I went to eat the injection site started burning pain and I felt numb. I reported this when I returned for the bone scan. I was dismissed, no side effects I was told. I wasn't told that most people do not, I was just told there were none, by two technicians and one doctor.

After, the hour scan, my neck, ear and face was beet red. I needed to take benadryl.

I get so upset when I am dismissed, I am not crazy,  see this Amp at

Dell Streak Tablet Review

Dell Streak Tablet Review

(Gadget Pr0n)

The Dell Streak tablet is one of the smallest and lightest tablet computers yet. Weighing only 7.7 oz and with a 5" multi-touch display running on Android 2.2, the Dell Streak offers web surfing, email and dual cameras for only $100 with a contract. Chris Hardwick and Candace Bailey review the Dell tablet.
  • The Dell Streak is almost as fast as the iPad or Droid X when using apps.
  • The Dell Streak's web browsing features were really good.
  • $100 with an AT&T contract.
  • We've used a thousand Android devices so we know what the good and bad ones feel like, but this Dell Streak tablet was really good.

About: "Supper is on!"

The Sweet Potato Gnocchi was delicious. The Gouda Cheese sauce was sinfully rich. It is certainly, as Elmo says it is "a sometime food." Mikey, even liked it.

Supper is on!

From the blog: The Noshery, I found a Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Gouda Cheese sauce recipe. The sweet potatoes are in the oven. This should be good. I will let you know. This is another wonderful website I found while using StumbleUpon. StumbleUpon is a great way to find new things on the web by interest.
