Coin Jar Calculator

First, weigh your coin jar. You can use a standard scale that you would use to weigh yourself with. To get more accuracy we suggest that you calculate the weight by stepping on the scale holding the coin jar and then again without it. You then subtract the second number from the first number for the coin jar weight.

Second, grab a representative handful of coins from the jar and count how many of each coin you got in your handful. Make sure you get a good random mix of coins that reflects the mixture of coins in the jar. Then fill in the values below and click the "Get Estimation" button.

This is for United States Currency only currently. It will not calculate right with any other currency in the world.

Darlie Routier, You're So Vain

I feel compelled to write about this girl. I don't know why other than the whole ordeal has bothered me since I first heard about it back in June of 1996. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. She is the person who was convicted of brutally stabbing to death her two young sons in Rowlett, Texas.

First of all, let me start this off by saying what you may already know - that I'm a certified shorthand reporter, although a non-practicing one since before the birth of our daughter in 2005, but I have still kept my license up. I started practicing court reporting in January of 1994.

I can't remember the year this happened, but I went to a Tarrant County Court Reporters Association meeting where Sandra Halsey, the court reporter for the entire Darlie Routier trial gave a presentation. She brought in blown-up, poster-sized pictures which had been marked as evidence in the trial. For some reason, the only picture that really stands out in my mind is the picture of the alleged murder weapon - the knife.

I remember this court reporter, who later lost her license because of all the errors she made in the transcript and was actually jailed for a while because she didn't have the transcript ready in time, I remember her talking about how the Leeza Gibbons show had contacted her and wanted her to be on the Leeza show. I remember Ms. Halsey saying that Darlie Routier was definitely guilty. It wasn't until later on that I realized during the time this court reporter was out giving presentations about the Darlie Routier murder trial, she had not finished the transcript. Darlie Routier received the death penalty. When someone receives the death penalty in Texas, and maybe, in fact, anywhere, the court reporter knows that they'll have to produce the transcript of the trial. Why was this lady out giving speeches when she should have been working on the transcript?

Fast forward a few months or a year or something like that. I'm at another court reporter seminar, this time in Dallas or Richardson or somewhere. Doug Mulder, Darlie's criminal attorney is now giving a speech or talking about the Routier trial. I can't remember what all he talked about. In fact, I don't remember him talking about the Routier case that much. I know he was kind of bragging about all the individuals he had "gotten off" in other criminal cases.

Near the end of the seminar, I grew enough juevos to raise my hand and ask him a question. The question was this: What percentage of people that you've represented and "gotten off" have gone on to re-offend? In a typical lawyer-like fashion, he skirted the issue and talked in circles for a while and never actually answered the question.

I just watched a show on the Biography channel the other day. I had seen it before, but watched it again anyway. The show was called Notorious and the subject for this show was Darlie Routier. They showed brief interviews with Mr. Mulder. And during one of those interviews, Mr. Mulder said something that really stuck out in my mind. He said he didn't think the video of Darlie Routier shooting Silly String and chewing gum and singing Happy Birthday over her sons' grave would have any affect on the jurors. Can I just say, What the hell were you thinking, Mulder?

Fast forward another year or a few months or something. I'm at another court reporters seminar in Fort Worth. This time the presenter or speech-giver or whatever you want to call it was Darlie Routier's appeal attorney Stephen Cooper. His main focus was all the errors in the original trial transcript - 33,000 errors to be exact. We're not talking about all little, tiny, minor errors. We're talking about where a yes should have been a no. I remember one of the questions was: Was the door to the garage locked? The trial transcript answer said, Yes. In actuality the person had said, No. That's a pretty big mistake, especially when someone's life is on the line.

I also remember Mr. Cooper saying that the prosecution contended that Darlie didn't have any defensive wounds, i.e., bruises, et cetera. At least one of the jurors in the case does not remember seeing any pictures when Darlie was in the hospital immediately after the attack that showed any type of bruising. Look at this:


I must say, I didn't hear all the evidence everyone had to present, but in actuality, I don't think the 12 jurors who gave Darlie the death penalty heard or saw all the evidence there was to be seen. I think the police, the detectives, the crime scene guys all went into the Routier house with the idea that this crime was committed by an intruder, someone who did not live inside the home. But I believe that they quickly changed their thinking and started trying to make a case against Darlie. Why? I don't know. One of the articles I read on the web was entitled, Guilty By Default, and for some reason or another I tend to agree with that.

Darlie Routier is very vain. She's got fake boobs, fake hair and no telling what else is fake on her. Does the fact that she's vain mean she loves her sons any less than a non-vain person? Does the fact that she's vain mean she's a murderer? I don't think so. I think if anyone deserves another trial, it's Darlie.

I Want A Wii

I went to my sister's yesterday to celebrate Christmas with my niece and her husband who live in Lubbock. I have to add that my nephew and his girlfriend (or should I say fiance) are now in Jacksonville, Florida. They've got second row seats for the Gator Bowl. GO RED RAIDERS!

Anyway, back to the subject. My sister got a Wii for Christmas from her husband. He bought it the day after Thanksgiving at Sam's. My sister is 45 + years old, but that doesn't matter. She loves it. I got to bowl and play tennis. I would have loved to do some boxing, but I'm afraid I would have started sweating like a hooker on nickel night and that wouldn't have been pretty.

I wonder when the stores will get any in stock? Probably summer of 2008. That reminds me of this picture:

If the two readers of my blog have any idea where I can get one, please let me know because I need to lose some weight!

Why You Can't Send A Woman To Home Depot

Charlie was fixing a door and found that he needed a new hinge, so he sent his wife Mary to Home Depot.

At Home Depot, Mary saw a beautiful bathroom faucet while she was waiting for Walt, the manager, to finish waiting on a customer.

When Walt was finished, Mary asked 'How much for that faucet?' Walt replied, 'That's pewter and it costs $300.' 'My goodness, that sure is a lot of money!' Mary exclaimed.

Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Charlie had sent her to buy, and Walt went to the back room to find it.

From the back room Walt yelled, 'Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?'

Mary replied, 'No, but I will for the faucet.'

This is why you can't send a woman to Home Depot.

Droog Do Straps


The Droog Do Straps, designed for the well-loved contemporary Dutch company Droog in 2002, are an innovative way to hang clothing, soft toys or books tight against the wall. The silicone strap comes with 2 drywall anchors and screws for installation. The strap measures 28 inches and can stretch to approximately 36 inches. For rooms with children 3 and up.

This looks like a neat idea to me. I don't see any reason why you couldn't make one yourself...other than the fact you may be half retarded like me.

How Many Episodes Are Left Of Your Favorite TV Shows?

Via Bits & Pieces:

"[UPDATED 12/20/07] There seems to be little doubt that the writers' strike will result in a shorter TV season, but just how short are we talking? Well, as you might've guessed, it varies from show to show. Those programs that are either highly efficient (Friday Night Lights) or have entered the season with a backlog of episodes (Men in Trees, Law & Order: SVU) will be in originals well into the new year. But series with tighter production schedules (i.e., nearly every half-hour comedy) will go dark almost immediately. Of course, figuring out how many episodes remain in your favorite shows' arsenals requires a lot of numbers crunching — and as I've come to learn, the only thing you Ausholes despise more than a Wednesday without AA is mathematics. With that in mind, I pulled together this incredibly handy (and 85 percent complete) cheat sheet. Keep in mind: The information below is subject to change, particularly if both sides get back to the bargaining table and resolve this frakkin' thing!

"The December 14th issue of the Lewiston Tribune, page 1A ran two substantial photos: In one, a husky man in a black-and-blue checkered coat is seen hanging Christmas decorations in a shop window. In the other, a surveillance camera shows a convenience-store customer’s unattended wallet being swiped by . . . a husky man in a black-and-blue checkered coat. Local police noticed the similarities, and quickly arrested the hapless criminal mastermind for felony second-degree theft. "

Always Maxi Pads

I received this in an email from my niece. Doing a little research to see if this was true or not, I came across this funny lady's blog (the author of the letter). It's called Wendi Aarons. Go check it out.

Anyway, here's the letter:

Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your Always Maxi Pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuardCore(tm) or Dri-Weave(tm) absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts.

But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from 'the curse'? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my 'time of the month' is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife skills'. Isn't the human body amazing?

As Brand Manager in the Feminine-hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customers' monthly visits from 'Aunt Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying, and out-of-control behaviour. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women. In fact, only last week, my friend Jennifer fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend's testicles into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey's Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy!

The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants...which brings me to the reason for my letter.

Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'

Are you f**king kidding me? Does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling,laughing happiness is possible during a period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything 'happy' about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Kmart armed with a hunting rifle
and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you just have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put Down the Hammer' or 'Vehicular Manslaughter Is Wrong', or are you just picking on us?

Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullsh**. And that's a promise I will keep.

Best Always,
Wendi Aarons

Nine Words Women Use

1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5. Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6. That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7. Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome.

8. Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU!

9. Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3.

Will DFW Get A White Christmas This Year?

I'm like a kid in a candy store thinking about this:

Will we get a white Christmas?

So the forecast shows lows at ALMOST freezing on Christmas Eve and Day. So could we get any snow? Even just a little bit??

"We're going to have some very light precipitation chances overnight on the 24th, and very early Christmas morning, probably before most people wake up," said Jason Dunn, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "Right now, it looks like it'll be a little too warm for any wintry precipitation. ... We don't have any snow chances."

So kids, get a-wishin'!

But on the bright side, parents might be able to finish their Christmas shopping in shorts. Friday's high will be 72, according to the weather service.

Here's the forecast:

Friday: 72/51. Sunny during the day, then cloudy, possible showers.

Saturday: 54/37. Windy, 60% chance of rain, calming down at night.

Sunday: 50/37. Mostly sunny, little wind. Then partly cloudy at night.

Monday (Christmas Eve): 46/35. Clouds.

Tuesday (Christmas Day): 45/34. Some clouds.

Air Force test

If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal. It's been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots. They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

Give it a try but be careful...it is addictive!!

What you have to do is click on to the red square in the centre and move it out of the way of the moving black squares and rectangles without touching the side walls. Like evading attacking aircraft.

The Man Cold Rears Its Ugly Head

I had to share this. If you read one of my posts from yesterday, you'll know that Shorty was sick (she's much better today). You'll also know that I was sick the day before yesterday. Shorty and I were both throwing-up sick. To me, that's worse than a cold, but who am I to judge?

Anyway, Papa Rooster has a "man cold." He's had it for almost a week now. Yesterday, Shorty was feeling a little better. Papa Rooster says to her, and I quote (well, I'll try to quote him) "Remember, Baby, you can never feel worse than Dada because Dada has a Dada cold."

Papa Rooster really tries to be funny sometimes. Sometimes he succeeds and sometimes he fails and sometimes he fails miserably. Which one of the three categories do you think that little comment falls into?
