As the 104 days of  summer vacation start to dwindle into the hot and lazy dog days, our favorite creative and inventive pair of stepbrothers, Phineas and Ferb, have a couple of summer spectacular events on the way to put a little bounce in your house before the kids head back to school.

This is one of my favorite shows to watch with the kids… and maybe sometimes on my own. WHAT!?

Check it out!


I made some mango salsa this afternoon and thought it would be a great thing to share since it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. So here goes:

Mango Salsa:

1 Ripe Mango

1/2 Med. Red Onion

1/2 Med. Red Bell Pepper

1/8 Cup Cilantro

Chop them all up and mix together. Simple as that. The secret is to finely chop the onion and pepper. You could add a little fresh squeezed lime juice to taste as well.

Great as a dip or a topping. Quick, easy and delicious. Enjoy!

Skype can now receive calls when the app is running invisibly in the background, which was a major omission in previous versions released before Apple added multitasking to its OS.

Doesn’t really solve the AT&T coverage woes, but it sure does help in the $ department.

Mozilla recently released the first beta version of Firefox 4, the next iteration of the world’s second most popular browser (after Internet Explorer). The new Firefox offers the usual under-the-hood tweaks you’d expect, such as improved security and better page rendering, and it also supports WebM, Google’s new open video standard project. But more importantly to the average user, Firefox 4 offers a refreshed layout and appearance. Here’s a look at some of the highlights.

I like the new look. I think I may give this version a spin.

That’s right, an ACTUAL flying car.

From the article: “It’s a two-seater. Front-wheel-drive. Gets about 30 mpg on the highway. But give it a third of a mile of straight asphalt in front of it, and it really flies.”

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Just yesterday, my 10 year old son asked me when we’d have flying cars. I guess now we know the answer.
