The ultimate water cooler for really lazy people…

When I was a kid, my dad had to make a rule that you could never take the last ice cube from the little ice bin on our freezer drawer without opening and refilling a fresh tray of ice.  So my sister and I always left exactly one cube.  Then Dad changed the rule to … Continue reading »

Guns, Germs, and Abs of Steel

OK.  There are no guns in this post, but it sounded much cooler with them. I have found the easiest way to get the abs you’ve always dreamed of, and you’re in on the ground floor.  Introducing, Cold and Flu AbsTM Yes, all you need to get that sixpack you’ve always wanted is a preschooler.  … Continue reading »

E*Trade is e*vil

OK, so I had an old E*Trade account from my computer industry days.  It still had $126 in it, and E*Trade started charging me a fee of $40/quarter for the privilege of possibly doing business with them in the future.  So I decided to close my account and transfer the money out.  Today, three weeks … Continue reading »

Civic Responsibility and Daytime TV

I was sick recently, and since we shut off cable TV, I found myself exploring that vast wasteland that is daytime television.  And then it hit me… Almost every time I talk to someone about jury duty, they’re trying to come up with innovative ideas for getting out of it.  But when I turn on … Continue reading »

Now Tower is in bankruptcy and have hired a company to sell off the inventory. Eleanor and I went to say goodbye and to check out the bargains. This is a picture … Continue reading »

Edible Necklace?

I didn’t realize this, but apparently macaroni necklaces are not only edible but are a sought-after doggie delicacy. (See picture.) Johnny, whose necklace was consumed, did not find this revelation as exciting as I did.

Living or Documenting?

I’ve experienced this a number times now so maybe it’s worth writing about… Eleanor and I always used to take cameras along on our vacations and when we came home, we’d find that we had forgotten to take any pictures. Lately, with growing children, we’re more deliberate about taking the pictures. We want to remember … Continue reading »

Watch your shoes, men!

I just read a web page with business advice for men who work with women. It suggests that women see men wearing unpolished shoes as rude. Is it true? Continue reading »

Look out, Starbucks!

Unfortunately, I have developed a taste for specialty coffee drinks lately. The thing that makes it unfortunate is the cost of the product. But recently, my wife Eleanor took a small gamble that may greatly reduce the cost of my coffee habit. Continue reading »
