Living in an Amish Paradise… 1

Living in an Amish Paradise…

Is it Wednesday already? Last weekend, I went and saw Weird Al Yankovic perform in concert in Boca Raton, Florida with my friends Lyn and Ryan.  Our seats were pretty good – and you can see in this video: The concert was AWESOME (to say the least.) Afterwards, we went...

Testing Mobile Posting (again)

I have a WordPress app on my phone which (last time I tested it) didn’t work well with adding photos.  I am trying it again.  If it worked, you should see the awesome Weird Al shirt I got this past weekend (which I will post more about later.) NOTE: Didn’t...

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T! 0

Beast Wars may suck, but Dinosaur Ridge DIDN’T!

This post has nothing to do with Transformers, but throwing in a Beast Wars title after last week’s hubbub was too easy to pass up. My father-in-law LOVES dinosaurs.  The man’s home office contains books, statues and toys of all kinds of dinosaurs; some of them older than me.  That...

Mount Evans, Colorado aka “OMG THERE’S SNOW!!!” 2

Mount Evans, Colorado aka “OMG THERE’S SNOW!!!”

On the suggestion of a friend in the Colorado office where I was working, Shannon and I took the afternoon last Friday and drove out to Mount Evans, Colorado.  According to Wikipedia (and a number of t-shirts at a gift shop on the way) Mount Evans sports the highest paved road...

The Buckhorn Exchange in Denver, Colorado…

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program! Thus far, I have eaten in two Man v. Food recommended restaurants: The Jack-N-Grill and The Vortex.  Both offered LARGE servings of some fun food… but neither offered menu choices as odd and unique as the third eatery I’ve now been...

Are we still taking about #Botcon, BotFAIL and Beast Wars? You betcha! 27

Are we still taking about #Botcon, BotFAIL and Beast Wars? You betcha!

Seriously. I really thought this would be over by now. I should be posting more stories from my weekend in Colorado… but I guess not. LOL I am reposting part of my reply I made to someone in one of my other posts as part of this update to address...

The Jack-N-Grill in Denver, Colorado… 10

The Jack-N-Grill in Denver, Colorado…

As reported earlier, I spent last week in Colorado for business.  The weekend, though, was spent with my wife seeing the sights and having fun with some of the local attractions.  It has been mentioned before (and bears repeating) that I and a number of my friends are a fans...

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance. 52

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance.

UPDATE: Would you like to see fanboys arguing the stuff in this thread, including WHY BEAST WARS SUCKS, live and in person?  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS! So – the argument seems to have shifted from “Tom & Joey suck because they hate BotCon” to “Tom & Joey suck because they...

The Ballad of #BotCon continues… 32

The Ballad of #BotCon continues…

I got back from Colorado late last night, and I’ve been swamped with getting things together for about a dozen projects.  Plus, I have a bunch of great photos to post and (to top it all off) the A/C is broken in the house.  True story.  It died while we...

Starship Troopers 4

Starship Troopers

It was recently relayed to me that Joey Snackpants had formulated much of his theories on life and politics from two books: Atlas Shrugged and Starship Troopers.  A few months back, took the time to read (via audiobook) Ayn Rand’s novel which has since turned into one of my all-time...
