Good Tuesday morning!

iMAgiNiff...
A new week of games starts right now! Once again, we're going to play iMAgiNiff..., but this time, a celebrity's name will be inserted into the game instead of the generic "you." The first name to be used is someone who has been in the news a lot recently...Rosie O' Donnell. Three people: Sharon, Jan and Raessa, will receive one point of extra credit for this suggestion.

http://www.weather.gov/view/prodsByState.php?state=wi&prodtype=climate
Wisconsin's second winter storm of the season has moved off to the east, and now we're being influenced by a large area of high pressure centered in Nebraska, which will give us lots of bright sunshine courtesy of the snow cover we finally have. Unfortunately a trough in the jet stream will make today and tonight considerably colder too.

Print Messages On Your Beer
"I stumbled upon a clever hack by Sprite. He reverse-engineered the pin functions on an HP inkjet cartridge and built a simple driver board that converts the cartridge into a hand-held inkjet printer. The driver board is programmed with a fixed message. Moving the 'print head' is your responsibility. Printing messages on a whiteboard was the original inspiration, but printing messages on the foam head of a Guinness is just inspired."
