Destroyed Nephews at Monopoly

My sister, brother-in-law and their four boys are at my parents this week for Passover. I was there this Friday night through Saturday night. So I played Monopoly with my two oldest nephews.

Why I Blog?

Nathan tagged me asking me why I blog. So why I blog? Why I blog? Why I blog? (1) To keep track of things digitally. (2) To remember things better. (3) To be part of a larger community. (4) To keep my fingers active. (5) Most importantly… To help others. (I hope) Let’s see, I

Building a Town in Second Life

Yes, Second Life is Nuts! I once gave it a try in November of last year, but after it wasting literally 4 hours of my time without blinking, I had to drop it cold turkey. During those wasted hours, I tried to build things. Simple things like balls, cones, boxes. I couldn’t imagine building out

Google Reader Is Now My Primary RSS Reader

This goes back a bit… Ask.com’s Bloglines was annoying one day, so I decided to pin Bloglines vs. Google Reader. Ultimately Bloglines won because Google Reader has performance issues in Safari. So I set Google Reader as my backup RSS reader. But that all changed recently… After hearing Google Reader fixed the Safari memory leak,

The Morning After Pill For Flying

Achhhh…. Just got in from STL this AM. I actually parked my car in daily parking, which turned out to be a smart move. In any event, waking up at 4:30am, getting on a flight to LGA that takes about two hours and landing in NY at about 9:15am is not much to complain about.
