Laptop for writing needed

Hello!

Today is Thursday morning and I am surfing online trying to find a reasonably cheap but long term writing computer. No gaming, just something to plug away with to type up my stories (in Microsoft Word) and maybe have a browser window open in the background if I need to research something quickly. Continue reading

Tattoo Day After           

Hi to you. I am assuming you found my site and are starting to scroll through it with the intention of reading something of mine or at least to look for a post with funny pictures. On that last, I’m sure I can accommodate you somehow. But for now let me state the reason for this post. Continue reading

Cleveland Indians 2018 Preview

Good day one and all! This post is about my Cleveland Indians. Spring training is still about a month away and Spring Training games after that. But as of the middle of January 2018 I am looking at my team…and I am concerned. Continue reading

NFL Predictions – AFC/NFC Championship Weekend

Hello!

For giggles I have been making ‘picks’ based on the betting odds for the NFL for the last two weekends (Wildcard and Divisional rounds). Here are my results for the last weekend and my predictions that should equate to the two teams who will appear in the Superbowl (with Justin Timberlake at the halftime show). Continue reading

NFL Divisional Round – Weekend 1-13 & 1-14-2018

After having a decent weekend ‘picking’ the NFL Wildcard Weekend games, I thought I would press my luck and do it again this week for the Divisional Round. Below are the lines and my predictions that I posted yesterday on Twitter. I you decide to use my information for betting purposes, I must insist that you not.  🙂

 

Peace.

Podcast Thursday

1-11. How about 1-11-111? What is this some sort of code? Oh 01-11-2018. I’m with ya now.

Today is podcast Thursday! So far today I have been listening to a few different podcasts including my own. Some of you may be asking: why do I listen to my own podcast? Well for a couple of reasons. First off I want to make sure the audio levels are decent and there isn’t too much secondary noise or whatnot that is detracting from the listening quality of the show. Second, I want to see if the show has flow and decent content. Yes I tend to map out topics beforehand and obviously I am the only one talking about them but you are never sure how external stimuli affect the logical flow and delivery of the material. And lastly, I am trying to make sure each show is a little bit different and not just a rehash of the same old thing from show to show. Being able to introduce new topics or adequately explain point of views is necessary; otherwise what is the point of putting out a podcast show? If it’s boring and senseless I might just as well make a show recording all the times I brush my teeth during the week.

So for all those people who have checked out my podcast: The Freak Show on the Podbean app – gracias!

Happy Thursday ~~ Peace.

NFL Playoff Weekend – January 6th & 7th

Good afternoon!

From time to time I do some sports flavored pieces. As I do not really gamble (because I am not good at it or lucky), I do not bet on games (yes, I’m looking at you Pete Rose!). But I do like to guess what I think will happen. So with that nugget of useless info dispensed, listed below is my Tweet to a fellow sports friend of The Go Show Podcast and my opinion of the outcomes of the four games listed. Feel free to review, comment, laugh, poke fun or be amazed! Continue reading

Nestle Crunch !

Good morning and hopefully, happy end to the year of 2017 for you!

Today is Friday the 29th and my last day of work this year. After a fitful night of sleep, I was in need of some kind of a pick me up. First and foremost I needed an energy drink. Since my go to Full Throttle Energy was sold out at the local gas station, I opted for the second choice which was The Green Edition of Red Bull. Now what to pair with this?

I’m sure my co-workers are quite accustomed to me showing up with an energy drink and some sort of breakfast snack a few times a week. Not that I think they particularly care but in general people notice stuff. So while walking around the inside of the gas station, I stopped in front of the candy bar section. The red, white and blue packaging with a ‘fake’ torn out reveal section showing Made with 100% Real Chocolate of the Nestle Crunch bar caught my eye.

A Crunch bar? Yes, it was meant to be! A 2.75 ounce, 4 piece Share Pack bar sounded like just the ticket. Internally I started thinking: “when was the last time I bought a Crunch bar?” Honestly I did not know. Over the years around Halloween and Christmas time, I’ve probably eaten about 7000 of those tiny snack-sized Crunch bars from the kid’s trick or treat bag or from the community candy bowl at family gatherings. But actually bough the adult sized candy bars? My memory fails me. It has been quite some time but through no fault of the product. The taste and texture of the chocolate plus the crispy crunch, It’s a fun time for your mouth! So I tip my hat to the Nestle people and say ‘Thank You’ for the Crunch bar. I will enjoy your product this morning as I try to elevate my energy to survive the last working day of this year for myself.

To all, cheers and Happy Holidays!

Peace.

Customer Service…or not

Hello and Merry one week until Christmas (Monday to Monday).

Today I have had two encounters with two different companies for issues that required engaging these companies’ customer service departments. The first one, after a 23 day wait and second impatient Tweet, resulted in the desired outcome to replace my damaged iPad from last month’s flight to Atlanta. The second interaction was not as successful, even though this bout of customer service is on its sixth e-mail response on top of a verbal call that came while standing in the TV room of a tire replacement business.

Lotto tickets for Christmas

Good morning worldwide readers. We have hit the 10 day mark. There are only 10 days until Christmas! Yes I know there are various cultures that do not celebrate Christmas but the majority of the world does so that is my point of reference at this time. Continue reading

Grumpy Old Men – Respawned!

The countdown relentlessly rolls on. Only two more weeks until the Christmas! (panic and chaos ensues)

Are we good now? Alright, let’s talk about something of a pop culture nature. Back in the mid-1990’s (Yes I know that’s soooo long ago), there were a couple of movies starring Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau. The first one in 1993 was titled Grumpy Old Men. The sequel came out in 1995 titled Grumpier Old Men. The first title is available on Hulu or Netflix, I forget which, and is a great lazy day (or sick day or snow day) watch. It’s got that 80-90’s feel with the cars and the TV’s and I recommend both. Continue reading

If I was NFL Commissioner

Hello and welcome to the What-If portion of my mind!

Helmet

That’s like totally most of it most days but whatever! From last year into this year, there seems to be an unusual amount of unrest associated with the NFL. Many longtime fans (Vin Scully included) have said they plan to stop watching the games, TV ratings are down and more people seem to talk about the people associated with the league as opposed to the product on the field. So let me take this chance to throw my hat in the ring to be the next NFL commissioner…unless that Tweet from earlier nets me the University of Tennessee head football coaching job. Continue reading
