A few days ago I received a promotional e-mail from Zillow.com, an online real estate database, that had listings titled “No Turkeys Here! See Celebrity Kitchens”. I usually just delete e-mails from Zillow.com because it saddens me to know how much value my own home has lost according to their “Zestimates”. But since the preview […]


It’s been a rough past few days for me. You see, I have a strange need to know what the weather is and what it’s going to be. So much so that I actually have three weather stations in the house that provide both 7-day and 3-day forecasts and current temperature. You’ve probably seen the […]


It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally getting up enough courage to back away from FarmVille. Seriously, did somebody lace this Facebook game with crack? While I wasn’t one of the first to jump into this black hole of time & space, I would say I was early enough in to have laid […]

I suppose if you’re going to do something you didn’t mean to do… this would be one way of feeling pretty stupid about it. I’m talking about accidentally purchasing the TomTom iPhone application from the Apple Store while trying to test out application sharing with a friend of mine.

Today I made my first car payment on “New” Buddy. It’s actually been a bit more than a month since my Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG joined the family and I’ve been wanting to at least provide an update on how life with a rocket ship has been going. So a few facts: 6.2L V8 – 507 […]


I couldn’t pass this one up… Buckle up, it’s a long one… And so here goes the story… As you’ve previously read – I’ve been on the hunt for a new car and had even taken a few test rides around  that had me pretty much settled in on a new BMW M3. So much […]

The sun was shining, the wind was blowing – yet still a slight chill in the air. It’s been a bit over three years since I’ve been acquainted with new Buddy and I’ve been having a slight new car twitch that’s been bugging me lately. This afternoon, I decided to do something about it. Time […]


We had our first death in our iPod family this week. Our 80 GB iPod 5.5 decided to no longer charge even though it was “100% Charged”. “Our” iPod is used the same way every day. C uses it an hour a day while she’s walking in the morning 5 days a week (she’s very […]

With fold out chairs and brownies, we enjoyed a third year of fireworks at Chesterfield Mall. While better than last year (but not quite as good as our first year) – our new Casio EX-S10 digital camera not only took pretty decent fireworks pictures… It made a pretty decent video of the finale as well!
