I hope Neil Young will remember, a Southern man don't need him around anyhow

So, it's a three day weekend you say? Surely Eileen and Jeff aren't going to be hanging around at home, right? Well you are correct! In just a few hours Jeff and I are heading south, south, south to the great state of Alabama.

You may remember Meggan from such episodes as "St. Patrick's Day, 2007" amd "50 Things to do with you iPod." Well, she's married now and she and Jeff (her husband, not Jeff my traveling companion. It gets confusing.) live in Mobile. So we're heading down to take in all the Dirty South has to offer. If I'm on my game, there will be photos and stories. Regardless, it is sure to awesome.


That looks familiar

So Jeff and I were watching "Lost" Thursday night (as we do) and I was flipping through the commercials on my Tivo (as I do) when something caught my eye. It was a giant wooden ice cream cone. It looked oddly familiar so I rewound and watched the whole thing. Turns out the commercial (for Sony) was shot in my old stomping grounds of Nevada City!

Now commercials aren't anything new around there, they filmed several when I lived in the area, but often it was made to look like some place else. You usually had to really look for stuff to recognize places. This commercial is more obvious. Also, there are a whole series of them filmed in Nevada City and Grass Valley and I saw a different one tonight. I guess I'll have to be more careful with my fast forwarding in the future. If you want to see one without all the tv watching, though, here you go.
