Fun With Gadgets From aBowman

These gadgets come in black and white. Before you embed them on your site, click on edit and color them anyway you want with the menu. You can also change how many balls, etc. Then get the embed code and put it in a blog, on your phone, or your web site.

Here is the one I did compared to the default one above. I added more balls and colored it. Click on the speaker icon to hear the balls clack together otherwise just push the balls around with your mouse.

 

I love this one! I used to have one of these clocks years ago and I miss it. I find these ‘ball clocks’ to be awesome! Unfortunately I lost some balls for it and haven’t found one to buy since then. The bottom is the hours, the middle and the top are minutes. Read it from the bottom up. Say the bottom ball was on 6, the middle ball 25 and top on 2. That would be 6:27. At 1 o’ clock watch all the balls get dumped to start over!

This hamster (as with the other animals) is so darn cute! He’s taking a nap right now. To get him on the wheel tap the middle of it. Most of these gadgets work by using your mouse and double clicking to feed or react with objects.

The fish like to be fed and will ripple the top of the water.

This guy really IS your best friend and you can teach him tricks!

This clock can chime and I set it to chime every quarter hour and on the hour. Love the chimes and the ticking sound it’s comforting. My grandparents had an old clock just like this! This was suppose to have black background and it’s not showing up. I can live with that. Sometimes a gadget has some rough spots. If that happens and you don’t like it I’d find another gadget to take it’s place.

Don’t ask me why, but I like this. It’s mostly eye candy but put your mouse in there and check it out. No need to double click here.

These guys just look funny and follow your mouse around but they are just SO CUTE!

These guys have water and beach to play on. BTW do you remember they used to sell turtles, fish and little lizards at Walgreens? The lizards came with a string leash to put around their necks so you could tie it on your shirt button and wear them. I’m glad those practices went away! Double click to feed these guys..

All these were colored by me and you can get these and others at aBowman.com by setting up a free account.

The clock on here just chimed 3 o’clock. It sounds beautiful!

For any other cool web sites that have gadgets and applications take a look at my ‘Web Wonderland’ list of free sites to get gadgets and stuff at. Most of all have fun and be creative with it!

Today's My Birthday, I'm Gonna Have A Good Time!

Yes, today's my B-Day and on a Tuesday the day I was born on! Some of you know how old I am and others don't. I don't want to talk about my age much less think about how old I'm turning today, (OMG!) I just want to have a good day and enjoy my life! At least I'm looking really good for my age, I work hard at it and am proud of it!

Photobucket

Yesterday it was dark and drizzling outside but today it's sunny and beautiful...just in time for my B-Day of course. Whoo hoo! I've been out once already and I'm going to go out again today and enjoy San Francisco because if things keep going well I'll be leaving this great city and moving down to San Mateo instead this very week! Can't wait (although I hate moving!)

Photobucket

To me, Bekkie In Wonderland!

Today I'm waiting to see if I got my new apartment so I'm hoping I hear soon it will be an awesome B-Day present!

My roommate gave me an AIW T-shirt (made by Disney from their new movie)  and it's so cool! It's all black and has the black Cheshire Cat face on it. In fact, it's just like the picture I have on my space that goes across the page. I love it!

I also got a bobble-head White Rabbit and he's sitting on my desk. He's so cute and I really like it! He's holding his watch which reminds me to watch the time. I guess my friends know what I like that's for sure! LOL!

Another gift I received was a Sony PSP which I enjoy playing very much!

I've gotten so many nice Happy Birthday messages and I thank you all! What's strange is that so many people in my network (folks I really like and get along with really well) are also Taurus's just like me. Of course I have many great friends who aren't but there's a lot to Astrology which is why I believe in it like I do.

Photobucket

Join me when it comes time and put on your hat. Then you can have an awesome party with me! Wish we could party together now! I'd love to party with you all on my B-Day! Some of you are wishing me Happy Birthday already and thank you for  your kind B-Day wishes I really appreciate them! My network is full of such good people and I'm glad to have you in my network!

 Photobucket

This is so true and I'm so excited right now! That's because I just got a call telling me I got my apartment and can move in tomorrow! So I got everything I wanted for my B-Day and am so stoked! As cool as living in SF is, I'm looking forward to getting out of the city because everything is cheaper! Even car insurance as I'll be getting my car out and running tomorrow. No more taxies for me! I get to drive my little sports car again, I have a nice place to park it now and I'm so happy! OMG I'm so thrilled about moving into my new apartment!

This means I won't be online for a week and I'll be changing my ISP to another address so don't know how fast I'll be hooked up at my new place but I’ll be back as soon as possible.

This is a really old photo from when I was in Junior High School and you could still get a nice Raccoon Coat from Good Will for only 10 dollars. I was still living in Michigan City, Indiana where I was born. I got put in the newspaper quite a bit back then. Boy was I young wasn't I?

Well, I have things to do because I need to move out of here starting tomorrow so I need to go. I'm really happy things turned out the way they did! See you soon!

Woman Attempts Bank Robbery And Eats Her Words

Authorities in Columbus Ohio stated that a woman tried to rob a bank with a note and after noticing a uniformed officer in the line behind her attempted to eat it. FBI Special Agent Harry Trombitas said the woman wearing sunglasses handed the teller the note at a Chase bank branch Wednesday morning.

Trombitas stated that the off-duty officer wasn't aware of what was going on, but when the woman noticed him, she grabbed the note and fled.

Outside, the officer arrested the 40 year old Columbus woman, Lois Harvey. Trombitas said she tried to eat the note as she was nabbed, but couldn't swallow it down and ended up coughing it back up onto the sidewalk.

Harvey remained jailed Thursday after a judge set bond at $250,085. Court records do not list her attorney as of yet.

40 Year Old Lois Harvey-OMG-What A Face!

What was really funny was the comments left about the story on the Yahoo News page! Here's some of the good ones:

  • Sassy Redhead- She should learn to swallow.
  • Hugh-She's only 40? She tried to swallow the note because it appears that she has no teeth. She really is a bad product of her environment.
  • Wyatt-Holy crap she's 40 going on 70! I wager she's on meth.
  • No Name-She didn't notice the policeman in line behind her? What an idiot! She looks like hell, maybe the money was for a makeover...
  • Rose Edwards-Take smaller bits next time, live and learn.
  • Thrilla from Wasilla-Stoopid White trash quasi-human tricks.
  • Maggie-All I can say is DAMN that is 1 ugly, crazy woman.
  • The Voice Of Reason-My mom always said, look both ways before you cross the street, and look behind you before you rob a bank. Thanks mom!
  • 1nomad-Hell, I'd pay her just to go away. She is quite beastly.
  • Katie-That gives a new meaning to the phrase; "Put your money where your mouth is."
  • Indy-Woman attempts robbery, tries to eat note...why not? It looks like she's eaten everything else.
  • Chuck-No brains....no headaches!
  • David-She looks like she came from the shallow end of the gene pool.
  • Redwingfreddy-Mom!!??
  • Kono-She needed the money for home improvements her house has a flat tire, or maybe she wanted to go to the dentist to get her tooth cleaned.
  • Erica-What an ugly man.....wait she's a women huh? LOL! Oopps and yea on a good one (meth or crack?)
  • Spencer-She tried to rob the bank with a note? Did she eat the gun too?

She must of used up her last good brain cell trying to rob the bank so she didn't notice the cop in his uniform behind her until it was too late. I guess when you decide to rob a bank your common sense goes on vacation and your reasoning goes with it. Of course when robbing banks you better have a good plan and hers was not!

Robots Creepy & Cool

Robots are becoming a reality and there are many different kinds with varied functions. It's truly amazing how they work and the things they are doing with them. Let's take a fun look at some of the robots that are being manufactured, they are really cool although some of them are down right creepy. I'll let you decide for yourself as you watch these video's from YouTube as to how you feel about them.

 Beautiful nature scene or not?

Focus on the dot in the center and move your head back and forth.

You are looking at pictures with your eyes yet your mind is showing you what it sees so you are able to see the optical illusion in the picture you are viewing. Or not?
