Even more noteworthy, Elaina's weight and height are OFF OF THE CHARTS. In fact, her weight is higher than average nine month olds as indicated by my handy graph below.
As my mom tells me, it must come from my side of the family.
She also rolled over in her crib yesterday afternoon.

We all knew he was in ill health. But what surprised me was that this news took a backseat to other news of the day this morning. Granted, the communist threat is a passing thought nowadays compared to what it was say in the 1950s through the 1980s but it probably deserved a little more coverage locally. In Ohio, the presidental candidates are heavily campaigning for the Democratic nomination which truthfully is a bigger story here in 2008. If this were the 1984 election year, Fidel's demise would be at the forefront.
The other possibility would be Carlos Laga, Cuba's Vice President.
Its amazing that most of the younger generation has no knowledge of a world with an iron curtain. A world before the fall of the Berlin Wall. A college freshman this fall was not born when the wall fell. Maybe this is just a function of me getting older and feeling like my parents' felt back in the 70s and 80s as they grew into adulthood and ensuing out-of-touch life that surfaces when you become a parent.
You heard it hear first. Within 10 years, Cuba's communist government will be dissolved similar to what happened in the Soviet Union in 1990. Let us just let it happen naturally without military intervention.

Before my buddy at "The2DollarBill" criticizes me for not writing about Super Tuesday, let me say that I am very surprised that McCain is still going strong. My prediction on the Dems: Hillary gets the nomination. You heard it here first!

Here's my synopsis of what's coming:
A 65 year old Harrison Ford digging up ancient ruins, a 61 year old Sly Stallone fighting in southeast asia...again. And now, David Hasselhoff is back with more Knight Rider action. What one of these classic film series will work with the viewing public more than the others? Do I really need to answer this?
NBC sent out an official press release on the upcoming new Knight Rider series. Evidentally "The Hoff" will make a special appearance.
If your not convinced, here is a comment from one Knight Rider fan on the upcoming series:
