Original Star Trek to Be Remastered for HDTV

I read in an online forum recently that Star Trek, the original series, was being remastered in HDTV. This sounded odd and strange so I did some research. Here is the press release from CBS/Paramount: The Original Series Returns To Broadcast Syndication For The First Time In 16 Years With Brand-New Digitally Remastered Episodes To […]

Family History

Its getting to be time to get back to doing some research on family history. I havent touched it in about 6 months, but am going to soon. I dont know much about my family’s history and would like to learn more. Unfortunately, most of my family doesnt know much about the history either. That […]

NutriSystem Diet Week 3 Update

It’s been three weeks now on the NutriSystem diet and things continue to go well. I lost another 2 lbs this week. That makes a total of 15 lbs for the first three weeks. I must say, its better than I had hoped for. So the diet is coming along pretty much the best I […]

Cruise Talk Central Gets Face Lift

Wow, didnt know it had been two days since I posted 🙂 I guess time flies when you are having fun. I have been tied up with changing/improving the way Cruise Talk Central looks. I have a bunch of things I want to do and the current layout was cramping my style and taking things […]

Football and Cheerleading Update

The kids are a couple of weeks into the new football and cheerleading season. Sean is again playing in the Mighty Mite division of youth football. The age group for that division is 8 – 10. The team is practicing 3 nights a week and occasionally throws in an odd day here and there. Savannah […]

Xbox 360 Texas Hold Em Poker

Hooah! Today is the release date for the Texas Hold Em poker game on Xbox Live for the Xbox 360. This date has been a long time in coming. The original release date was back in February. A lot has changed since then too. The game was going to be free and supported by in […]

Madden 2007 Release Day for Xbox 360

Today is the release date for Madden 2007 for the Xbox 360 (and the other platforms). Football used to be my favorite game to play on consoles. Madden has kind of been the reason for the “used to” part. The old Xbox versions of the NFL2K series were, in my opinion, far to superior to […]

NutriSystem Diet Week 2 Update

Week 2 is in the books for the NutriSystem Diet that I have begun. This week was just a bit harder since we had a family outing at Benihana’s Teppinyaki Restaurant to celebrate Sean’s birthday. I believe that I made very good choices for dinner but I am also sure that I ate more than […]

Happy Birthday Sean!

Happy Birthday to Sean today. He is now the big 10 years old! Wow, time sure flies when kids are growing. We had a fun birthday weekend. An earlier post detailed the fun present opening, Benihana’s dinner and mini golf birthday celebration that we had for Sean. Sunday was spent watching the PGA Championship, playing […]

Sean’s Birthday Celebration

Sean’s birthday is officially Monday and he will be 10. However, he has football practice and hip hop dance class on Monday, so it didnt make sense to celebrate it on Monday. We made plans to go in to Tucson late Saturday afternoon, have some dinner and play some mini golf. Afterwards, we would come […]
