Vibram Five Finger "Smell" (huh?)

During some random Internet searches, I noticed some posts about people who are saying their shoes smell, some even say they downright stink.  I have three pair of the Vibram Five Fingers shoes and absolutely love them.  I have my dressy pair, my every day pair, and a pair that is a little older so they are used for yard work and the such.  My shoes have never smelled, not even a little.  I can wear them for hours at a time, even in the Texas heat, and they never develop a smell.  No, I don't have special non-stink feet.  Trust me, my feet and shoes will definitely smell when wearing regular shoes.  Hubby also has three pairs of VFFs and has the same experience that I have had. 

The antimicrobial material definitely works.  I am totally perplexed as to why some people would say their shoes stink.  Could it be something other than their shoes?

OJ Simpson - Is He Innocent?

There is one sure way to get a debate going in our house; simply say "OJ is innocent."  Hubby and I are on opposite sides of this debate.  I have always believed that OJ either committed the crime or hired someone to do it for him.  Well, news came out today that OJ may be innocent.  The story from the guy claiming to have committed the murders, Glen Rogers, seems plausible; but I am still suspicious of him speaking out now.  He has apparently claimed responsibility for other crimes in order to get moved to another facility or to get off of death row, so it makes me wonder if this is just another one of those incidents.  There are lots of news stories today about this guy and it is really hard to sift through what is valid and what is sensationalized.

Regardless if Rogers did commit the murders or not, I find the timing of his documentary to be terrible for the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.  The documentary is scheduled to air the day before Thanksgiving and could cause these families to relive this painful ordeal all over again.

Today, hubby and I found this cool cookie kit for the holidays. Instead of traditional gingerbread cookies, these are Ninjabread cookies.

Walmart Under $100

For a while now I have said that it is impossible for me to go to Walmart and spend less than $100. Well, tonight I proved myself wrong. Our bill at checkout was $99.99. I guess it is possible for me to spend under $100 at Walmart.

Turn on Your Lights

This morning we had a dense fog advisory here in the Austin area.  You could only see about 2 car lengths in front of you, but there were so many people who didn't have their lights on.  Why would you want to drive in the dense fog and not turn on your lights?  I simply don't understand.  You may think they are not needed because you can see, but other people are not able to see you.  It is even worse if you have a car color that is muted such a gray.

Come on people, turn on your lights!!!

44th President - Barack Obama

If I counted correctly, President Obama is the 15th President to be elected to two consecutive full terms. There are a few who finished out terms for the prior President and then was elected to a new term, but I did not count those since they were not the one actually elected to two consecutive terms.

Election Day

Don't forget to go out and vote today.  I know a lot of people don't vote because they think their vote doesn't count, but that isn't true.  Every vote counts.
