Seems the net was getting a work out today due to the new trend of “Cyber Monday“. Brick & mortar retailers have the well-known Black Friday, but since EVERYTHING in the USA needs a name, the Monday after Thanksgiving is now known as Cyber Monday. Fed up with the malls already, folks are turning to… read more

Went to St. Louis last night and saw the musical Wicked. It was even better than I figured it would be, so I was thrilled, and it sure will make you watch The Wizard of Oz with a whole new view point! Great music, lots of humor and an amazing set. And yes folks…this means… read more

Well, this week The Apprentice 4 gave us two episodes, but episode 10 was a recap. Nothing really interesting came out of that except more “Markus is a moron” clips and we learned Brian had a big crush on Jennifer M. Whoppee. In the new episode, Randal and Rebecca returned to the suite much to… read more

Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as I do each year, and I am used to them having crappy one-hit wonder type bands and singers on the floats. Imagine my utter, and total, shock when Cartoon Network sponsered a Puffy AmiYumi float! I don’t think they even qualify as a one-hit wonder in the USA,… read more

Amazing Race 8, Episode 9

Amazing Race:Family Edition opened up with the teams having to drive 136 miles to Monument Valley, UT. While it is a Navajo tribal park, most people remember it from John Ford’s Westerns (such as The Searchers) he made in the 1940’s. Oddly enough, once there, they had to find John Ford’s Point to receive their… read more


I have an odd obsession with reading about teacher/student sexual relationships because it fascinates me how any adult, in their right mind, could think “Man, Billy may only be 14, but he sure is sexy!” So with that said, I was just reading about the sentancing of Debra Lafave. You may remember she was the… read more

Over the past ten days or so I have been doing something I never really thought I would do…purging my comic book collection. I started collecting around May 1976 with Amazing Spider-Man #156 that my father picked up at the Circle K near our house in Glendale, AZ. (And it’s even still there!) That was… read more

Yes, I have professed my undying love of Skype many times, so just put up with me while I talk about this. Starting Monday, Radio Shack will have Skype kiosks in their stores that will be selling phones and headsets to work with their service. They will also be carrying low end mics and headphones… read more

The Apprentice 4 opened with everyone waiting to see who would come back from the latest board room. They were shocked when only Randal and Rebecca came back, meaning Brian and Marshawn had both been fired. After that excitement was over, Alla and Adam were trying to make peace with Clay who was, shall we… read more


The tribe members returned to camp from the latest tribal council as Survivor Gautemala opened up this week. Everyone was congratulating Gary on his use of the hidden immunity, except for Jamie, who seemed to be seething. Big shock. This was followed by Jamie getting all worked up about Gary voting for Cindy, which Cindy… read more
