Football + Arizona + September = Hot

Wow, what a day for football today. There wasnt a cloud in the sky and the temperatures rose above 90 degrees. That’s not the norm for Arizona in September, but its not that outlandish either. Being as we are in the mountains, it must have been pushing 100 in Tucson. Sean had another football game […]

Technology Woes Continue

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for some of my tech items. First, the treadmill died (twice actually). Now, my gaming headset (mic and headhones) for my PC has crapped out. I was in the middle of an America’s Army game, discussing strategy with my 158th clanmates, when the microphone stopped working. I tried […]

Doom Available on Xbox Live Arcade

Today, another old school game was released on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. The game released was Doom. Doom is often credited with beginning the 1st Person Shooter revolution. Today, 1st Person Shooters are one of the most popular genres of video gaming. The graphics for Doom on Xbox Live Arcade look pretty […]

Treadmill Woes Continue

So much for the treadmill woes being solved. I hopped on it again yesterday for a workout. About 5 minutes into the program, barely enough time to break a sweat, the treadmill once again seized up and stopped. I suspected another blown fuse which would not bode well for the treadmill. Continual blowing of a […]

Weekend Musings and NutriSystem Update

Wow! What a busy weekend. It was even a three day weekend for me as it was my Friday off week. Some of the activities though were self-inflicted. I put myself in a hole sleepwise early as I stayed up until 3:30 AM on Thursday night playing America’ Army. That game can be quite addictive […]

Treadmill Update

A quick update on the treadmill… If yall followed the comments on the original post, my friend Paul suggested checking a fuse. I was skeptical, but checked the fuse I could see and it was working, as were the electronics. Suzanne, got out there this morning and tore apart the machine to get at another […]

Treadmill Dies

Well, as usual, timing seems to be perfect. I was about 30 minutes into a treadmill routine last night when the treadmill decided to die on me. I was walking along at about a 4.0 mph clip when it suddenly stopped. Of course, I didnt stop that fast and promptly walked into the front end. […]

Coincidence? I Think Not…

Okay, now this is probably old and many may have seen it, but I hadnt and it got a very nice laugh out of me. It’s also political in nature, which I usually avoid blogging about. Anyways, here ya go… Many people will recall that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying […]
