Cadbury's Dairy Milk (it's a UK thing) just released a new commercial featuring "two mischievous children performing bizarre "eyebrow dance moves" to an electro-funk soundtrack."

Someone needs to make a commercial like this in the US:

How could I forget?

Happy Inauguration Day!

I know it's the 21st already on the east coast, but we're still celebrating Barack Obama's inauguration over here.

My favorite part of the swearing-in ceremony was when Rev. Joseph Lowery gave the benediction, especially his colorful ending:

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. "

It made me smile.

Back in Alaska...

Well, we made it back to Alaska. The few weeks we spent back in Florida and our quick trip to the Bahamas were fantastic. Thanks to everyone who housed, fed and lent out cars while we were visiting home. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

It was pretty tough returning to the snow and ice after spending three weeks in the South Florida sunshine. At least we missed some of the worst weather of the season and brought back just enough of a tan to remind us of the great time we had back home.

Here are some pictures from our vacation:

Vacation Dec 2008

Visit the Good Life Reggae MySpace page to check out pictures from the Winter Music Fest in Girdwood, Alaska, organized by Andrew and held the weekend we got back in town.

The event was great. Good Life Reggae spun records while Bare Roots performed, and we got to spend the weekend in Girdwood, one of our favorite towns in Alaska. Click here to see all the pictures.
