Another Reason to Love Utah — Great Movies (well almost)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I was sent the below infographic and wanted to post it. Utah is the only place I have lived where people don’t like to admit they are from.

I have lived in Utah longer then any other place and it is definitely home. There is so much to explore and be proud of. Yes, it is the homeland of us crazy Mormons, but it offers so much more (and even the crazy stuff is interesting).

Anyway, below is graphic by Xango about 10 movies filmed in Utah. Frankly, I am surprised that they didn’t add M:I-2 to the list. Nonetheless, there are some great movies on the list and I personally like the troll they added at the end.

The Solution to the Command Prompt Issue in Vista

I need to get off of Vista, because frankly it sucks! When I want to use the command prompt in Vista I have to be sure it sees me in admin role (even though my user profile is admin). I don’t use the command prompt often, so everytime I do I have to figure out how to get it to work all over again. Therefore, I decided to put the process here so all I have to remember is to come to this post. Hopefully this is helpful to other unlucky Vista users. ~Paul

You know you need to be in admin mode if you receive the below error when running a command (I used ipconfig as an example).

‘ipconfig’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

If you receive this than you need to follow this process:

  1. Go to control panel (classic view)
  2. Choose administrator tools
  3. Then system configuration
  4. Click on the tools tab
  5. Launch the Command Prompt (second to bottom in my list).

This loooooooooong process will make sure you can execute your commands. Thanks Microsoft for making an easy task ten times more complicated!

5 Tips on How to Look Good for the Camera

Not sure who to give credit to for the below article, but thought that it was worth sharing.

  1. If standing, turn slightly and rest your weight on one foot. If sitting, angle to one side or the other. It may FEEL goofy, but you will LOOK better.
  2. Lean slightly toward the camera – Adds interest, dimension, and a natural look. Think of creating a long neck like a gazelle, and tilt your chin down just a bit to avoid a double chin and an unwanted view of your nostrils.
  3. Develop a ‘trigger’ – Models can “change state” by using “triggers.” Even if in a crummy mood, they can look ready for the shot in in a heart-beat by using a trigger or reminder to do what makes them look good. Most effective trigger: the rear cheek squeeze. It’s inconspicuous and works exactly like it sounds: squeeze rear butt cheeks together. Just ask someone to sitting on a chair to squeeze their cheeks together. Most will immediately smile and look better.
  4. Learn to 3/4 smile – Most people don’t like pictures of themselves with a huge smile: it exposes the gums and causes eyes to turn into slits. A 3/4 smile solves the problem and looks more natural.
  5. Look slightly ABOVE the lens – Never look directly at the lens.

Delicious Mexican Pizza

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 pound ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 (6 inch) corn tortillas
8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons sour cream
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
2 green onion, chopped
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles, drained
1/2 avocado, diced
1 tablespoon black olives, sliced

Heat the refried beans.
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Stir in the seasoning packet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place a small amount of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Let the oil heat, then place one corn tortilla in the skillet. After 15 seconds, flip the tortilla over and let it fry another 15 seconds. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas, letting them drain on paper towels once they have been heated. When the tortillas have drained, arrange them on a cookie sheet.
Spread a thin layer of beans on the tortillas, followed by a layer of beef, and cheese.
Bake the tortillas in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Slice the tortillas into wedges and arrange them on plates or a serving platter and garnish them with the sour cream, tomatoes, green onions, chiles, avocado, and olives.
