Life’s Too Short Not To Do Disney

In January 1995, at the age of 29, I found myself at Disney World for the first time.  We only stayed 2 nights at a Disney resort, which means 1 full day at Magic Kingdom, but I realized then, I would have to make a habit of seeing Mickey Mouse. I returned in 1998 for 3 more nights.  I brought my mother, who also had never been to Disney.  We…

My New Toy – Flip Video Mino HD

I just ordered a new toy for myself – The Flip MinoHD.  It is so cool.  I ordered it from Amazon.  I linked that photo on the right to Amazon if you want to click on the phone it will take you to the Amazon page where I purchased mine.  You can watch a demo there and read more about it. The main reason I got the Flip is because…

Had To Put Ole Red Down

I’ve been driving a piece of junk for the last several years… a 1997 Hyundai Elantra.  Why?  Because it was paid for and I didn’t want to take on a car payment.  So, I thought I would drive it until it was a few miles short of dying… well that day came, and I knew I had to put my red Hyundai to pasture and move on to something better. …

Nothing Like the Stanley Cup Playoffs

Two posts in a row here about the Dallas Stars and the Stanley Cup playoffs… but I was at game 6 to watch the Stars beat the Ducks last night, eliminating the Ducks and moving on to round 2.  You talk about exciting!  I don’t think I’ve ever been in an arena that was more intense, electric, loud, and fun.  The place was hoppin! When Robida scored in the 3rd…

In The Presence of the Cup!

I am all about hockey.  I’ve had a blast this past season as a partial season ticket holder to the Dallas Stars.  Last night was the first playoff game I’ve been to, and it just made me realize that there is no other playoff series like Stanley Cup hockey.  Football, baseball, soccer, basketball… none come even close to the intensity, speed, tenacity, skill, determination, and perseverance that it takes to…

Dallas Stars Take 2nd @ The Pinewood Derby

Just had our first ever Pinewood Derby.  We had a blast.  For almost a month, Josh and I have been working his Pinewood Derby car.  We sanded the wood with 400 grit sandpaper, polished the axles with 2000 grit paper, sanded the paint job down with 600 grit paper, and carefully placed weights within the car.  We also made a mess everywhere with adding graphite to the wheels and axles. …

Kind of Creepy

I worked with college age international students from Asia for about 6 years.  Many of them were from Japan and Taiwan.  They would come over to our home and play with our kids quite often… so much so that they began bringing them lots of Hello Kitty gifts… the real stuff from overseas.  Well, Hello Kitty just got a little creepy.  Check out this photo:

Practice Being an Entrepreneur

Investment coaches have said that one of the best ways to learn to invest in the stock market is to use fake money, or simulate your trades.  Well, many people dream of starting their own business or working from home.  Now you can practice it with the The Sims 2: Open for Business Expansion Pack It’s been a long time since I played the Sims, but this looks worth getting…
