Some will think I'm wierd for getting the least bit excited over this. I also realize that I practiced very poor driving skills as I fumbled for my cell phone camera to snap this picture while going 45 mph down the road.
But friends, come on, you have to admit this is kind of cool. Look at the odometer reading. This is better than when I turned over 100,000.
More and more I'm finding little things to celebrate throughout my day. I'm just glad I caught this. I hope that the lady I almost ran off the road while trying to take this picture will forgive me.
I wonder where I'll be when it rolls over to 222222.
BONUS: 50 points to the person who can tell me what kind of vehicle I'm driving!
Online communities aren't anything new. As the Internet evolves, people are discovering lots of different ways to connect with others. One of those ways is through the web portal - MySpace. MySpace.com is a social networking website that is taking up a lot of student's time.
Even with many users in their 20's MySpace has the personality of an online version of a teenager's bedroom, a place where the walls are papered with posters and photographs, the music is loud, and grownups are an alien species.
Although many people over 30 have never heard of MySpace, it has about 27 million members, a nearly 400 percent growth since the start of the year.
Are you on MySpace? Do you like it?
