is pumped for Infinity Ward's sequel to Call of Duty 4 with Modern Warfare 2:

Modern Warfare 2 - Worldwide Reveal

I have been a fan of the Call of Duty series of games since I was introduced to Call of Duty 4 about 2 years ago.

I spent many hours on that game and was thrilled when I heard Call of Duty 5 was coming out. Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is an Infinity Ward game while COD 5 World at War is a Treyarch game. They are both killer games and I still pay COD5 all the time. Inifinity is getting back into the development of this series with this new one - the sequel to COD4 - Modern Warfare 2.

This looks so kick ass and I can't wait for the release. It comes out 11-10-2009. Check out the trailer:

cooked a Louisiana Cajun Bean and chicken soup - went with chicken over ham hocks and sausage so Gretchen will eat it -

Louisiana Cajun Bean and Chicken Soup

Louisiana Cajun Bean and chicken soup. I buy whole chickens now when we BBQ and I cut off the meat first to cook - cheaper and fresher - I keep the rest of the bird in the freezer, so I cooked 3 birds this morn to make the chicken stock for the soup and took off all the meat when it was done. I used a bean assortment and spice packet for this soup and it looks and smells amazing.

the eggs have been laid...

Robins Eggs

So I never removed the nest by the front door and it looks like the eggs have been laid. So far so good. No real issues with the robins living there other then startling each other when we go out that door in the morning. As you can see here, the placement is tricky...

Robin's Nest

A robin built this nest next to our front door. I'm not sure if I should remove it or just leave it.

feels bad that a robin built a nest on top of our light next to our front door. Do I leave it there?
