Cool Web App from Google : GrandCentral


I was looking around the Google site today.....really looking to getting started programming in GWT. I did find all of the GWT stuff....however, I ran into an application called GrandCentral ( This application gives you a free phone number and provides a dashboard for managing the free phone number. One of the common ways I use it is when I am not at home - I enter my business phone number, my home phone number, and my cell number into the GrandCentral application and configure it so that all incoming calls are linked to my GrandCentral phone number. That number is pointing to my cell phone. So an inbound call on my Grand Central, home, business, or cell phone all go to my cell phone. Just a really neat application and is priced in the retail sweet spot of FREE!!!

Home Owner's Association (HOA) rant # 1

got a letter in the mail.....

I HAD a Mike Huckabee for President sign in my front yard. I received a letter from my HOA the other day. I really had no idea why I would be getting a letter from them. We have paid our HOA dues for all of 2008, I just had tons of landscaping work done, and I thought I was following all of the gazillion rules of living on my 50' x 100' lot in the Stagecoach subdivision.

The letter informed me to immediately remove my political sign because it was against one of those gazillion rules we must follow.

The land of the free and the home of the brave - just no political signs in your front yard, thank you so kindly.
