Imagine a market in which you can find every single item you are looking for, through the touch / interactivity of your shopping cart.
Imagine a cart with a tom-tom GPS unit, a horn, autodrive and price checker all built-in.

Why can't a shopping cart be wirelessly connected to an instore-system ? Why can't they be fit with an LCD, or bluetoothed to your blackberry / iPhone / Android ? Imagine the data that could be collected from people's shopping experiences, helping shop owners to pinpoint the most sought after items, and keep them regularly stocked.

I think that the Brown Jug has some upgrading to do.

How High's the Lava Mama?

I've been thinking a bit about this whole erupting volcano thing and the fact that there is 6 million gallons of oil stored near it's base and I decide to write the Coast Guard as kind of a heads up.  The captain of the port is Mark Hamilton, his email address and my letter follows:


Hello Mark,
It has come to my attention that Chevron has 6 million gallons of oil sitting at the base of a volcano. I should like very much if the Coast Guard was involved in an effort to safeguard this oil and or prepare for the unlikely event of it's release. It is very possible that you are already attending to this matter. If so please send me an email and or YouTube video of your current efforts. Please note that "We're working on it" is not an adequate response.

Thank you for your time on this matter, 6 million gallons of oil seems like a lot to me. I calculated that I could heat my home for 20,000 years with that much oil, or nearly 10,000 years if my girlfriend sets the thermostat.

Thanks again,

Johnny G

Liquid Lunch Hour

This here is a local bar in downtown Falmouth that is good and cozy for a pint in the afternoon or evening. The got themselves a real nice American flag right there hanging from the ceiling, just in case someone feels a little homesick.

Murkowski: bruised, battered and possibly baked.

As if our tumbling stock markets weren't enough, our beloved Senator Lisa Murkowski took a reported 400 foot digger down the south face of Alyeska on Sunday and mangled her knee.  I can't help but wonder if it was the moguls that got her (she strikes me as a mogul skier, I don't know why) or perhaps she spent a little too much time in the purple haze outside the Sitzmark Saturday night.  

Whether you agree with Little Murky's politics or not, torn ligaments mean you were pushing the envelope and that counts for cool points in my book.  I suppose it could also mean you have the atrophied joints of a pterodactyl...whatever.

Rubes turns 15

This just in...

So what we have here is a graph of the economy vs. ski slopes.  The red line represents Alyeska's Christmas Chute, the blue is North Face, and the green is the economy.  Not so good. You don't have to pitt check the green line to see it is avalanche prone.
Two more jobs were lost today when Kellogs and Subway fired Michael Phelps.  In a retaliatory move the Clubgirdwood Blog endorses the boycotting of Subway and Kellogs, respectively.  Unless it's lunch and you want someone with scabies to make you a sandwich, or it's breakfast and you want a bowl of flakey bran appropriations, then you are welcome to boycott the boycott.  
The real tragedy of course is that Phelps admits to a "regrettable mistake in judgement." Obviously dude, NEVER smoke eastcoast scrub, you gots to bring your dolphin lungs NORTH to the Valley!

I've Fallen and I can't get up

This should be taken very seriously.  Also, why the hell is no one posting fat powder day pics for the rest of us flat landers to see.  Seriously.
