How To Hack An ATM

Robbers are being sought in Gwinnett County after stealing entire ATMs with large backhoe tractors in Dacula.
The latest heist was caught on bank surveillance cameras.

The thieves try several times to get the blade angle right on the stolen loader so they can lift the first of two ATMs.
From a camera on the second ATM, one of the robbers is plainly visible. Then the first ATM can be seen being loaded onto a truck.

In their rush to get away, the thieves -- who had the ATMs in the back of their pickup truck --wrecked before they were able to get the money out of the ATMs.
So for all their work, the thieves, in that case, didn't get a dime.

Travel tips from a clown. When I was a wee lad clowns scared the ever loving crap out of me and now it seems like they are dispensing travel advice. PAt, yes I did quit flying American about 7 years ago.

So after leaving the DeSantorium at 6:15 I high-tailed it back to Chicago O'Hare, driving like a stunt man in a Burt Reynolds movie. I made it to the Enterprise car rental with plenty of time to drop off the car and take the shuttle back to the airport.

Once there I was told that my flight was jam-packed and was asked if I wouldn't mind taking the 12:00 flight which still had 25 seats available. I agreed and THAT was the moment that everything else went to hell in a handbasket.

The TSA confiscated my makeup box, which has always flown in my carry-on luggage for the last 5 years.

What Is It?

Goose thought they were "Green Cockroaches". "H" knew they were some sort of a vegetable and wanted no part of 'em.
They are "Roasted Brussel Sprouts" and besides smelling up the house they were delicious.

Saturday In The Park

We loaded up the car and headed for "Piedmont Park" our version of Central Park, complete with attack squirrels.

The "Green Market" was going on so we stocked up on red lettuce, green beans and doggie treats.
Being close to "The Varsity" the family insisted that they needed nourishment. I dined on grilled chicken breast while the fed their face with devil food. My healthy eating prompted "The Wife" to taunt me with a chocolate shake.

I Passed

After being out of school for 25 years I'm a little rusty when it comes to taking tests. I even fret when it's time to take my drivers test. Today I took and passed Microsoft Exam "70-631", Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuring. I wrote a perfect score 1000 points, sheer and absolute luck, no seriously it was.
Time to order new business cards with all my certs on it. A+, N+, CNA, CDIA+ & now MCP. Gonna make my card look like the side of a NASCAR

Bobby Cox Replacement?

Two minutes that will make you laugh. You gotta love "Minor League Baseball".

Happy Anniversary

Yesterday was the 3 year anniversary of "Frick's World". 953 posts later I still can't spell our correctly use punctuation.

A No Girls Allowed Weekend

"H" and I placed both the girls on a plane Friday morning and sent them away for a few days. That left both of us holding the reins of "Frick's World". At a little more than 48 hours into this journey he is the tally of things we've done:
All of the animals have been fed, both days.
We saw "Spiderman 3" stadium seating rules.......
We ate at "California Pizza Kitchen".
We've played over 6 hours of "Need For Speed Carbon".
We watched "Employee Of The Month" & "xXx".
We visited with my sister.
We did find time to water the plants.
We stayed up late.

Things we did not do:
Made our beds.
Got out of our pajamas before 10:00 am.
Ate at the dinner table.
Go to "Hooters".

All in all there was the strong scent of Testosterone around here.
