After hours of frustration I finally found a way to add a 5 star rating system to this site and a few other websites of mine. I know it doesn’t sound like a big deal, but not having many programming skills makes things like this pretty difficult. I sat here for hours trying to figure it out. I even pulled some hair out and swore at my laptop a couple times… it’s the only way I ever get things done. So now I’m pretty happy. Plus this is EXACTLY what I need for another project I’m working on… but that’s a secret.
P.S. I added a short new video.
Here’s how it works:
It’s my birthday! This has felt like the fasted year of my life. At the same time I can’t remember more things happening in one year then this past one. Having a great week so far and this weekend is gonna be nuts. Today’s already off to a great start and it’s only 3:47 in the morning. I stopped in at Tailgators for a couple minutes right around midnight and everybody in the bar surprised me by singing happy birthday. Got a few free drinks too. Tonight it’s Bennigan’s like we do every year, then the real fun starts Saturday when all my friends are meeting up at Snookers. Can’t wait!
It’s the birthday week, and I couldn’t have started it off better then how I did. On Monday, I went on a one day road trip to Cooperstown, NY with Steph, Justin, and Nick to check out the Baseball Hall of Fame. The hall of fame was great, but the car rides there and back are the memories that will stick. We listened to Justin and Nick’s traditional "road trip mix Cd’s" on the way up, then squeezed in some good Beatles songs on my iPod as we got closer. We took the scenic route (suggested by AAA), so we had things to look at like mountains and "mysterious indian burial mounds" on the ride up. We finally made it there around 3, stayed about two hours, then tried to stop in a few souvenir shops but everything was closed cuz its off-season in the boonies.
The ride back was the highlight. Never smiled and laughed as much as I did. Steph was going nuts off a red bull I just fed off the energy. We stopped in at Uno’s for some pizza and beer, broke some glasses, Steph tried scaring me with suddenly closing mint boxes and feet, and we just went nuts singing Beatles songs for the rest of the way down. Finished the night off with some Beatles Anthology and Arrested Development at my house. Couldn’t have been a better day. Go check out the pictures Steph took in the Newest Pics album.
