BLOG again

I’ve decided to try this whole BLOG thing again. I’m been using Google Toolbar alot lately and the latest version now support BLOGing. So, it appears to be the wave of the future or something. Who knows. Previously, I was not keeping up with it and generally didn’t care, but maybe I’ll take another swing at it. Looks like my last activity was almost a year ago. Sadly, not much is new. You can check out some of the photos that may or may not be new to you, the reader.

Of course, you can also check out the Philly Restaurant Reviews. I think I am becoming the next Zagat Guide. Not.

In any case, the worst thing that can happen with this is that my search hits increase. From what I read, blogs tend to me the reason for increased search hit. Whatever.

Post Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was pretty good. For the first time in as long as I can remember, we had a Thanksgiving dinner without anyone else at the house. It was just the four of us, which was a welcome break from the usual stupid argument, questions, absurd statements and depressing company.

It was a nice long holiday – I’m not used to having four days off in a row. Let’s hope my current employment situation continues so I won’t have to have any more days off in a row.

Turkey Day

Well, its the day before Thanksgiving. Probably my most favorite holiday. Why you ask? I don’t celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan or whatever holiday is popular this week. So, Thanksgiving has become the defacto standard in my house. Thank god it has slowly and slowly been reduced, by way of death, moving, break-ups or just plain not inviting, to just the four of us this year. What a wonderful day it will be.

Oh, I also killed my CDRW drive the other day. Blah. Another fifty bucks down the tube. I think it was in the middle of writing a CD and Nero crashed. But, the CD “WRITE” light was still on. Well, I turned the whole computer off thinking nothing of it, maybe a ruined CD and BLAM, the CDRW drive has yet to read a disk since. Sucks. Time to fire-up and see what they got!


Had a pretty good week. I went down to Miami to do several things. I got a little vacation from work which is always nice. I also got to see the Pitt vs. Miami game which was a real blast. Almost got killed by several fans and Pitt ended up losing the game, but still had a great time. Lastly, I finally got to visit my friend Paul Ufberg who is down there for his residency. Miami is a very nice city but I don’t think I could spend the rest of my life down there, its just a nice place to visit. In any case, at least I can go there on a whim and have a place to stay. Heh.

Driving and Such

Well, it has been awhile since I last posted to this. No real reason why, just been busy and trying to stay off the computer. In any case, I’m able to make a post now so why not do it! I attended a High Performance Driving School at Lime Rock on Monday. Great time was had by myself, Mark and Tony. I mounted my camera in Tony’s car and got some great videos. Work at
FreedomPay is starting to wind down so I guess I’ll be out of work soon. I sure do hope this economy picks back up, not having a regular job stinks. Also, looks like we will be getting a third roommate again, which will help a bit on the rent, I guess. Until next time…

Halloween Party

Went to a pretty good Halloween Party on Saturday night. Quite the little shin-dig. A small crowd of about 20 people went to Gary & Alan’s, so it was quite mellow – at least in the beginning. By 1-2 AM, it got pretty wild.

Trip to A/C

Pretty good weekend. Went to Atlantic City, saw a Philadelphia Flyers game and watched the Eagles kick some Tampa Bay butt. Sopranos was pretty good, at least better then last weeks. Still waiting for some major action to take place. The preview for next week looked promising, so lets hope. Other then that, not much new. Looks like my contract is going to be up at work, so its time to find a real job. Blah. That might mean getting into work before 9:30 AM, which is going to be a struggle.

Also, I was able to get my desktop computer up and running again. Replaced the Motherboard, the RAM and the Processor. I think the old motherboard is OK, so maybe I’ll make another computer soon. At least now I’ll be able to update the web site again. I have some new pictures and such to upload.
