Lightbulb Free language lessons
Got this from Lifehacker.

The US Foreign Service has language lessons, all public domain, that can be downloaded in PDF and audio files for free.

So if you've ever had the desire to learn a foreign language but never wanted the expense or classroom time, this might be a good bet.

Thanks for the tip. Looks like I may be having to brush up on my Portugese...

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

You & Bubba heading to Portugal? Or Brazil? I can't speak for Brazil, but had a wonderful time in Portugal. Great people, exquisite food, mild weather... but driving/riding there is, well, a challenge.
