It's basically a big commercial for the latest Cat machines but I will gladly watch a commercial for heavy equipment if it involves them moving 600 pound blocks of wood in the world's largest Jenga game. Check out the full video below.

Mike and I are experiencing a lot of "firsts" these days!
We are in the middle of our first major home renovation. And it is NO fun!
Sunday evening we went to our daughter's home to have a home cooked meal…that SHE cooked for us! That was lovely. And I used HER washer and dryer to do our laundry! The worm has definitely turned.
I am going to a baby shower for my first granddaughter next weekend. A GREAT first!
I have guests coming in on Thursday, and my house is a disaster! I have never welcomed guests into a house with concrete floors and plaster dust on every surface. Fortunately, it is my sister-in-law and it's her husband that has made this mess!
And last Friday night, Mike had to open cans with a knife (because we gave the can openers to the kids when they moved out). We have been eating on paper plates and plastic silverware for weeks now. Nothing to cook with…or on! He just wanted a bean dip!
To quote Ferris Bueller "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." I would say this is even more true for parents. This fact has hit me even harder with my first born off at college. I am still trying to figure out how she went from 8 to 18 so quickly. This video nails it...
Even though my youngest nephew is already 7 months old, I'm hoping to convince my brother to do this with him... Now go hug your babies (no matter how old they are).

The internet has been all a flurry since it was announced that Stephen Colbert would be taking over The Late Show from David Letterman next year. I'm a huge huge fan of late night talk shows and Letterman in particular and I could not think of a better heir to his desk than Stephen Colbert. I've also seen Colbert get a lot of flak for being too political for a Late Night Show on a broadcast network but I don't think that is going to be the case. There has always been a clear distinction between "Stephen Colbert" the character and Stephen Colbert (actually pronounced Colbert, which is how the rest of his family pronounces it and how says it when distinguishing himself from the character). I've been a big fan of his since before his Colbert Report days and he was just an insanely talented improviser and comedian who had a two man show with another famous Steve... Steve Carell. So i went through youtube and found some clips that highlight his hilarious talent over his political one.
Check him out on this episode of Whose Line is it Anyway (skip to the 6 minute mark to check him out as a Shakespearean actor on a dating game)
and here he is with his old pal Steve Carell rocking the National Anthem
I'm definitely looking forward to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
