Greg and I are doing part two of our honeymoon this weekend with a visit to Pawleys Island. I’m not sure about the whole “arrogantly shabby” thing, but we’ve never been to a North/South Carolina beach, so it’ll be an adventure. I hope it’s not too cold for swimming.
…I might swim regardless.
- Hill Gardens of Maine – What’s Wrong With My Seedlings? – Awesome article on light and temperature treatment of indoor plants and why seedlings end up spindly and weak (like mine are!).
- Twitter / @Adwoa D. : Political Correctness – Weird to link to something on Twitter here, but I love this statement.
- WikiLeaks: grand jury hearing opens in US – Telegraph – I had no idea that journalists couldn't attend grand jury hearings–that's shitty.
- Who is Osama bin Laden? – Boing Boing – I tend to resist the urge to blame the educational system for things, so some of the comments on this post annoyed me. That said, I hadn't thought about the fact that my own little sister was 2 (count 'em!) when 9/11 occurred. How crazy is that?
- How do you convince the average web user to switch to a non-IE browser? – Nothing incredibly new here, but it does include the following exchange:
“Why do you use Internet Explorer? Do you know that there are other options for browsers?”, I asked.
“No, not really. As far as I’m concerned, when I access the internet, I just need to click on the big blue ‘e’ and do a search. I don’t know why I would use anything else.”
“What does the ‘e’ stand for, Alex?”
“The ‘e’ stands for ‘internet’”, he replied.
- Lego Apartment – Look at this awesomeness. Everything folds away; it's pretty slick.

You have to go to a little italian cafe called ” landolfi’s ” Its amazing food and little treats! A must for that area, also you will see arrogantly shabby fits that place well,.. I love it hahaha
Grant jury proceedings are always closed due to the different burdens on evidence there. During grand jury proceedings, things like heresay and tainted evidence are acceptable because the grand jury is only trying to determine if the likelihood of a crime being committed is large enough to warrant a final trial. If the proceedings were open, then evidence that would otherwise be unavailable to jurors in the actual trial might become known via the media, thus tainting the jury pool.
Really, it is just a risk mitigation effort.
Ah, that makes sense, Guy. Jurors would come in with all sorts of notions.
Have fun, I want to great all about it
@Mark: I think we’re going to do lunch there on Sunday before we head back. Thanks for the suggestion!
