Award Wallet

Awardwallet.comI used to travel quite a bit in my last job and accrued some random airline miles here and there. I couldn’t keep track of how much I had and where they were until I found out about Awardwallet.com. It’s a free site that tracks your balances in one convenient place and even alerts you if your miles are going to expire. Although you might want to manually check once in a while, because I had some Jetblue credit expire on me. You can get a free six month upgrade for first-time users if you use the following coupon code: free-yfakbw.

Devils Tower

I didn’t get a good picture of it, so look, it’s my “Devils Tower Painting” (no HDR) from Geordi. I don’t really know what’s up with me and landscape/nature photos. They never look good to me.

Devils Tower in Wyoming rises 867 feet above the ground for no apparent reason. Teddy Roosevelt declared it the country’s first national monument in 1906. Steven Spielberg used it as an alien landing pad in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

45th Parallel North

45th Parallel North

The 45th parallel of latitude is an imaginary line that circles the globe halfway between the equator and the North Pole. This same line passes through Minneapolis-St. Paul, Ottawa, Bordeaux, Venice, Belgrade, and the northern tip of the Japanese islands. In Yellowstone, it’s roughly aligned with the Montana-Wyoming border. [Via]

No, this image wasn’t taken in the 70’s. It just looks like a typical travel pic to me. Because I didn’t have my stormtroopers to take pictures of, I had to throw my shoe in there. I’m getting too old for that cuz I think I almost pulled something taking that picture. For some reason, I like to take random pictures of my shoes.
