Interesting bug in my customized Google Homepage

Here's an interesting bug in my Stock Market view on my customized Google Homepage.

'YHOO' is showing among my other stocks.

Only I don't want it on there, I neither own the stock nor have any interest in owning it. But, try as I might, I just can't seem to remove it.

I click on edit and click the X, and it goes away....but when I'm done....'YHOO' reappears.

Best picture goes to gritty drama 'Crash'

Here's an interesting thing....given all the hype made about "Brokeback Mountain".

I haven't seen "Brokeback Mountain", and I couldn't recall why I would've had a reason to watch it....

OTOH, I have seen "Crash", and I thought it was an interesting/good movie....though I think the only reason I initially wanted to see it was because "Sandra Bullock" was in it.

And, when I did one of those who do I think will will Oscars surveys....I had selected "Crash" to take it. Though from the instant survey results, I was in the minority....with "Brokeback Mountain" being hyped into the lead. Of course, the poll was probably tainted because everybody else had heard gone with the hype. And, then there are those that answered more honestly that might be limited in that they didn't watch all the nominees...etc.

Still....nice to know that I was right on (at least) one count. Considering I don't really pay attention to these award things.....

The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die

I happened to have recorded/watched Oprah yesterday....which featured a segment on "The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die".

It has been a long time since I've had a good hamburger....I had one many years ago, that was great...but I don't remember where. Since then I've mostly been eating burgers from McDonalds or Wendy's.

Unfortunately, in the quest to make burgers healthy...McDonalds has taken all the flavour out of their their Big'n no longer tasty....kind of bland. So, I hardly ever eat at McDonalds now (except when I have a craving for their fries, though I hear they'll be playing around with that again)....though when it comes to fast food on the road, I tend to still pickout McDonalds...because at least I'll get what I expect. Not like the time I was on a trip, and made the mistake of eating at Burger King.....the food poisoning kind of ruined the rest of the trip.

At least it wasn't a trip for job interview....

Since moving to where Wendy's is on the wrong side of the Interstate, is why I haven't been there in a while....

Anyways...this list certain sounds like something I should do....I've been thinking that one of these days I should explore this country I live in, and maybe this'll be the excuse to do that.

Of course, it'll have to wait until I have a job again...and get back to where my boss comes down on me for not using up my vacation time properly....

Though I do now have this craving for a nice hamburger....though I can't think of where I might go to get one.
