Have you heard the news story about a Vietnam Veteran protesting the sale of American Flag rugs in St. Louis? (Check Out Full Story Here) He is outraged and calls the rugs unpatriotic! I might have to agree, it seems wrong to rub your dirty feet all over the flag!

Do you think he is blowing it out of proportion or does he have a valid argument? Let us know your opinion on Facebook!

Paying For Facebook?

Annie's Blog

An interesting question came up today: Would you ever pay to use Facebook?

Now before you get into a panic about your soon to be expensive Facebook addiction, I should point out Mark Z. has always said Facebook will never have a fee! Whew... can you breathe again? I seriously think I may have an addiction at this point! However, if they EVER tried to charge me to use it, I'd be done!

Let's hear your opinion! Check out our Facebook Page! (Don't worry, it's free!)

The Greatest Invention Of Our Time...

Annie's Blog

http://youtu.be/8BPvBElDZHo

Today we've gotten word of the loss of one of the greatest inventors in the 20th Century, Eugene J. Polley. While his name might not be all that familiar, I would bet you use one of his inventions almost everyday. He is the man who created the first wireless remote. Although, the technology has changed his concept has remained the same for over 60 years!

I hate when I cannot find the remote and have to walk up to the TV to change the channel! How did we survive without a remote? I don't know if I could even watch TV without it! (Yes, I'm lazy!) I'd even go as far to say as this was one of the greatest inventions in the past 100 years! What other items would you put on the list? Let's talk about it on Facebook!
