Honda F1 team looking out to the environment

Hondaracing f1 going for the enviroment

Today Honda unveiled there new Formula 1 car for the 2007 season.

The most noticeable thing was that there is no advertisement on it. It just looks like the earth.  Through the website www.myearthdream.com it will be possible to buy pixels on this car to help the environment. So if you want to help this world maybe have a look.

And if even big companies like Honda start to see that the environment is important then maybe you should do the same ;)

Keep the heat

Why do we all keep our curtains open at night?

 Don’t we have those things to close them? And do you know that if you close them at night you will save a lot of heat?

 Think about it and maybe this is a way for you to save some of our natural resources.

Music and Lyrics

Music & lyrics with hugh grant and Drew Barrymore

This was a really good Valentine’s day romantic (perfect timing guys!) movie. It was funny and easy to watch, and the plot even made good sense. The movie focused on a 40s something washed out 80’s pop singer (Hugh Grant) who was trying to keep up with his music career, only to find out that he was truly clueless about lyrics. He chances upon a young woman (Drew Barrymore) who enters his life and apartment to water his plants. She helps him with lyrics for a new song which saves his career, however she also ends up in love with him, while he was not so sure at first. All in all it’s a feel good movie with a good happy ending. The visuals are nothing great so I would recommend you wait until its on DVD and have a sappy girls night to watch it.

If you like to hear Hugh Grant sing again then you should get the Music and Lyrics soundtrack!

Check out the Music and Lyrics trailer!

Stop you engines.

You see them every where people waiting in there cars waiting for others to come.

Nice i do this to when i pick up my wife. But WHY does the engine have to be on??????

Your car will not cool down that much in the 5 / 10 minutes you are standing there. And by turning you engine of you save a lot of that expensive fuel you are complaining about ;) and you also keep the air around you a little bit cleaner.

Everybody Votes Channel

Nintendo wii and the new everybody votes channel

When I woke up this morning i found a blue flashing light coming from my Nintendo Wii, and we all know what that means by now today we got a message from Nintendo telling me about a new Channel! They of course have the option in this message to download the upgrade.

BUT after that nothing appeared :( But they promised so i went on a little search and finally found the new “Everybody Votes Channel” as a free download in the shopping channel :)

After you have installed it and selected your region (didn’t i do that for all those extra channels by now ;) )you can selected the Mii’s that you want to use in this Wii Channel. You can selected up to 6 Mii to use with the everybody votes channel.

After you did that you can start voting. It is basically a simple thing you see a question and there are two answers and you drop you Mii on it to select it. So is there a question “What do like best” Dogs or Cats. After you vote you can also predict what the final verdict will be. And then i guess it is waiting till the voting is done :)

And we can’t see yet what that would look like.

Nintendo also gave you the option to send them new voting questions. And they are expecting a few questions i guess because they limit your entrances to 1 a day :)
I have to say this channel is fun. I even expect that i am gone use it more then the Weather or News channel (that i almost never use). I just hope that they come up with new question daily.

Good word Nintendo for keeping this Channel out of the news till launch :)

You know that you can buy a water saving shower head for less than 5 dollars?

You only save warm water to so that means you use less water AND you save electric / Gas to :)
