"What is a trebuchet?" you might ask. Well, it's a big gadget used to throw stuff. Check out this website:

What On Earth Is A Trebuchet?

Be sure to see the dead cow experiment:

Totally Tasteless mode: A Dead Cow!

I am jealous. What a terrific way to kill a few hours.

Speaking of trebuchets, check out this latest round of ads from Volkswagon:

Un-pimp My Ride!

Scroll down and play the third one. Another cool trebuchet. Actually, you should play all three. I love these new VW ads because I can't stand "pimped-up" cars.

Clean Media

I recently created the following website:


as a resource to parents on controlling media content in the home. The main focus is on internet filtering. My new church assignment is to be a "media consultant" and assist parents with these issues.

I gave a talk to the combined RS/priesthood last Sunday on this topic. The response was overwhelming. I am amazed at how strongly parents feel about this (as well they should). However, my wife was talking with someone in the ward and he said "That's pretty neat about your husband's new company." My wife said "What new company?". He replied, "My dad said your husband started a new company and made a presentation about it in church on Sunday." Argh.....

By the way, I need to give a shout-out to Rus Berrett for helping me registering the cleanmedia.org domain name and for donating the web-hosting for the site. I would also like to thank Rus, Jeff, and Mike for suggestions and input to improve the content on the site.
