Time to quiet

So, I'm going to quit gambling. Not 100%, but I was looking at some numbers, and realized I'm losing about $200/month gambling. Granted, that's my primary entertainment now that I live in Reno, and while I wasn't using Quicken back in Montana, my bar expenses were probably comparable. Before I actually looked at the Quicken numbers, I figured I was losing twice that.

Anyway, happy Easter folks. The wikipedia article on Easter is actually pretty fascinating, particularly the Etymology and the origins of Easter traditions. While I've always heard people refer to a pagan basis for some of the traditions, it's interesting to see the than Venerable Bede may have just been guessing that there was a goddess Eostre.

The Easter egg article is pretty good too. I'd never heard of jarping (about 2/3 of the way down) where you try to break other peoples eggs with your own.

Google hasn't had a logo for Easter since 2001 as far as I can tell. The 2000 logo is atrocious. I wonder how they decide which events and holidays get a logo?
