We (my wife mostly) watch our grand-babies, Andy – 2yrs. old and Jadyn – 1 yr. old, at least three times a week while their mother works. My daughter being a single a mom, we are glad to help out as the costs of daycare can be enormous.
That being said, we have literally transformed portions of our home to keep these precious little ones safe. I thought it would be interesting to provide a peek at what we actually have to do every time these little ones are with us.read more
I have always been a huge fan of Netflix. What’s not to like about them – get as many DVDs as you can watch delivered by mail for a very reasonable price. Add to that the ability to live stream movies via your PC, specific set-top devices and even some TVs and it is a match made in heaven for any lover of media on DVDs.
Unfortunately as of late, Netflix has been driving me away. I have been courting another DVD rental “lover” and that is Redbox. “What can possibly be the problem,” you might ask? Just look at my current queue of DVDs I’m waiting on.read more
After many years of wanting to see U2 live but always missing the opportunity (concerts sell out), I finally got to see themalong with my lovely wife Irma in their biggest, baddest show yet – U2 360. Tuesday, October 20th at the Cardinals stadium is where it all took place and although the show here didn’t sell out (Phoenix you suck), there were about 55,000 in attendance.read more
This post is specifically for residents in Arizona but who knows if this scam is not going on elsewhere throughout the country. A company called "Property Tax Review Board" or PTRB for short is sending out letters promising homeowners that they can help homeowners...read more
One recent Alltel commercial really ruffles my feathers. It is the one where a roller coaster is the central theme and people are in areas that are always closed off looking for things that have dropped out of people’s pockets. It promotes an action that is very reckless and can be deadly.read more
I recently purchased a Vox Custom Classic AC15CC1 Guitar Amp so the Marshall Guitar Amp I’ve been using for the last several years has to go. Because I’m running POD XT Live effects, I no longer need the four channels as well as all the effects that the Marshall amplifier offers. So she’s up for sale.
If you are looking for a 150 watt Marshall Combo amp, this is your chance to get one at about two-thirds of what you’d pay for it brand new.read more
In celebration of our 18th wedding anniversary, Irma and myself decided to do something we had both desired to accomplish for some time – to ride in a hot air balloon. We did just that this last Monday where we reached heights of up to 4,300 feet and lows just above the rooftops of Anthem homes.read more
I just love the song “Magnificent” of U2’s new album, No Line on the Horizon. That is why I was thrilled to come across this very well done cover of the song done in “acoustic style.” It is really phenominal that the guitarist can play and sing the song at the same time.
It appears from the URL that is included in video that the trio is a band from Brazil called “Lunares.”read more
Words really cannot describe the world’s largest model train display – Miniatur Wunderland, located in Hamburg Germany. Although the exhibit features over 800 trains pulling over 10,000 railway cars, which is impressive in and of itself, Miniatur Wunderland is much more then a model train display. It is in fact a virtual world in and of itself representing scenes throughout the world.read more
I like the Letterman show and watch it from time to time, especially if there is a guest on that I want to see. I don’;t think I have ever watch the show religiously each and every night for a week. Last week was an exception because one of my favorite bands, U2, appeared on the show every night.read more
