Transformers Movie

This past weekend, we finally got around to watching the Transformers movie. We have had it from Netflix for a while, but I kept putting off watching it as I was not very interested in the movie. I remember the transformers from my younger days and it was very hokey to say the least. So, […]

Family and Vacation Update

Unfortunately, my extended holiday vacation is drawing to a close. The last day I worked was Dec 6 and I have been on vacation since. This is the longest vacation in my career that I have taken from work. I will be back in the office on Monday. My company has a “use it or […]

Die Hard Marathon

This past weekend was another nice weekend watching older movies. With the current release of Die Hard 4, I had an urge to watch the first three movies in the series. Also, Sean hadn’t seen any of them and he was definitely interested in seeing the fourth one, so I figured it was time to […]

Night At The Museum

Tonight, the family gathered for another family movie night. It’s one of our favorite things to do on the weekends. Personally, and I have said this many times, I would much rather gather for a nice movie in my theater room than go to a movie theater. The movie of choice tonight was Night at […]

The Pursuit of Happiness

Tonight, we gave the Will Smith movie The Pursuit of Happiness a run. It’s a feel good story about a man of vision who is down and out on his luck. His sales job isn’t working and his wife leaves him. Yet, he is determined to provide for his son. The movie finds him living […]

The Guardian

We got a chance this weekend to view the movie The Guardian. As mentioned before, we don’t get to the theater very often and prefer to watch movies in the comfort of our home theater, so we are sometimes slow in watching movies. Also, we tend to watch a lot of old films that we […]

300 vs 300 Spartans

We finally got a chance this past weekend to watch the old classic movie 300 Spartans. You might remember my post on the current movie 300, and the issues I had with it. I also related that, as I remembered, the original 1960’s movie was much much better. Suzanne, Sean and myself sat down to […]

Quick Family Update

Today, Sean started baseball practice. He is excited, but now has to decide when to play baseball and when to go to dance. Normally, he dances four days a week with only Wednesday off. It looks like baseball practice will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The number of days will go down when the […]

Rocky, Rocky, Rocky

Yesterday, we finally got a change to view the latest Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa. First, to set the stage for the kids, we also rented a copy of the original Rocky movie so they would have a frame of reference for the latest. The kids hadn’t really even heard of Rocky, let alone seen any […]

Elliptical Trainer Saga Continues and 300

Unfortunately, our saga with our new elliptical trainer continues. The A/C power converter arrived on Friday and Suzanne spent about 2 hours with the support folks trying to the elliptical trainer to work. When the converter was attached and the system plugged in, nothing happened. They had Suzanne switch a connector between the electronics “head” […]
