Howdy doo. Just a little end of year note to let you know that I haven't forgotten about my little blog and it's handfull of readers. I've been trying to come up with something good to write about for Christmas but I couldn't and now that Christmas has passed it seems silly to write anything about Christmas.

So here we are, a few hours away from the beginning of the New Year and I still can't come up with something I like. I refuse to not write something, even if it comes out a bit lame.

While this has nothing to do with New Year's I just have to mention it. Little Yappers Attack Officer. On Friday, 30 Dec 2005, a police officer in Fremont Ca was attacked by 5 nasty little rat dogs. I guess they didn't like that their owner was being escorted home by a police officer. Can't help it, this just sounds like the start to a bad joke.

Earlier this week I was going to do another on-line vacation. It was going to be about roller coasters around the world. Seems like this would be a good on-line vacation. Guess what, it really isn't. Looking at pictures of roller coasters and amusement parks really isn't all that interesting. Maybe if I was a roller coaster rider the pictures would make me think of roller coastering fun that I already had. 2-D pictures just don't cut it.

You can check out Google to see what I mean about looking at roller coaster pictures.

The Skyrail roller coaster toy looks like fun though.

The other day when I was going through the pictures there were more links to physics classes relating to coasters. That was kind of neat. Perhaps you would like to Bring Physics to Life with Roller Coaster Physics.

The joy of Googling is that you may find better pictures than I did.

I wanted the last post of the year to be more interesting but that just hasn't happened. In less than six hours the East Coast will be into 2006 and more than likely I will be asleep or pretty darned close to it. That should explain why this last post of 2005 is not something deep or very interesting.

Well, Happy End of 2005 and Happy 2006!
Hope the New Year's ups and downs are fun and don't make you puke! :-)
