This post is about Beryl, my new pet Budgerigar.  A Budgerigar is a small parrot, more commonly known as a Budgie, or Parakeet.

Our decision to get a parakeet was based on the fact that it was a small animal, which could socialize a lot more then most animals, and was generally fairly cheap to purchase and maintain.

Urban Planning

A few weeks ago I got into a discussion with a friend about urban planning.  The topic at hand was related to mass transit, and the concept of Subways vs Commuter Train service.

The idea of Subways of course is to easily move from one part of a high density city to another part without impacting surface transportation or requiring a lot of land, which is likely expensive to purchase.  Where as the idea of Commuter Train Service is to bring daily commuters in from the suburbs in order to work and do business in the city.


So it took me a while to get around to seeing Avatar.  My wife and I happened to want to watch a movie at the theater this weekend.  After reviewing the movies which were playing, I picked Avatar - as it seemed to be the most interesting and intellectual movie available.

The reviews I have heard about the movie were always fairly negative.
