And I’m back…

Today was the day my domain ( was set to expire. Before I could decide on the future of this blog, Nicole and I had to decide on the future of our domain and website. Now granted, I haven’t really made much of our website since it was originally a wedding website. That’s an entirely [...]

Music and its Meaning

It’s good to have on in the background while you are working on something else. It can relax you. It can help pass the time, or it can get you on your feet and start dancing. In a lot of cases, memories, events, or stories can be tied to a specific song. If you’re a married person [...]

Windows Phone 7: A Tough Decision

Last year I posted a blog titled “My Smartphone Journey” (which can be read here). Now that I am eligible for my upgrade with AT&T, the question is not what type of phone to get, because I know that answer. I have already eliminated iPhone and Android, and I’m firmly in the camp of Windows [...]

     10. Carolina Panthers/Jacksonville Jaguars (tie/bonus team) I think these two teams could benefit from a benefactor with unlimited funds. Sure, there’s a salary cap in the NFL, but I would hire a “cap guru” to work on crunching the numbers and that goes for the Jets (see below) as well. 9. Toronto Blue Jays [...]
