Miami Heat – Champions

DALLAS – JUNE 20: The Miami Heat celebrate winning the NBA Championship after their 95-92 win against the Dallas Mavericks in Game Six of the 2006 NBA Finals June 20, 2006 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

I don’t know where this guy was, but his crazy car-horn-blowing schenanigans kept me from going to sleeping comfortably.

Something worth celebrating

Juneteenth. A portmanteau of the words June and nineteenth.

it was on June 19th (1965) that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

And the Miami Heat

Ok. That was mostly Thursday and Friday.

I was supposed to post this last week.

The Heat

So the Heat are seating pretty, waiting for either the Cleveland Cavaliers or The Detroits Pistons. I think playing Detroit will be tough. If the Heat beats them, they might win the whole thing. I would love to see Lebron and Company(Cleveland) advance, but I think we can beat them in 5 games.

The ad has to to with The World Cup, only 22 days away. I’ll have to find a way to watch some of the games. I ‘ll use the technique du jour (google and bittorrent). I also expect to see games via yourtube and yahoo webcast.

The Fresh Market

I guess it has been around since december; we only went there for the first time last saturday. Prices are ok, not exuberant. Selection is genereally good. We suspect this market is owned by The Home Depot, but they only stress that they were “Founded in 1982 by the Berry Family, The Fresh Market has grown to 47 stores…”

Trek-ing

I love the Star Trek universe, its space-time continuum and its stories. Now I look forward to play its games. There have been many ST games released in the past (ST: Voyager Elite Force is highly rated); but I haven’t played any(I am eyeing many good deals on amazon). While we were watching Deep Space Nine few weeks ago, I often dreamt of participating in the narrative. Hopefully the new games that Bethesda Softworks are working on will provide me of the opportunity.

Bethesda is of course responsible for ElderScrolls4:Oblivion.

Here are some sceencaps.
