Hosting Serenity Now!

Hosting – It Matters

I work with web hosts all day long – five days a week. When someone asks me where they should host their files – I always rattle off 2-3 different options – depending on their needs.

Music

Best Hour on the Radio

Over the last few months I have really enjoyed listening to DJ Flipside on B96 both on air (as shown) as well with his podcast available via iTunes.

Merry Christmas to Me

This is something I wanted since the late 1980s. I was super psyched to get this off of eBay and look forward to adding it to my collection of fun things.

Politics Serenity Now!

Remember Your Manners and Keep it in Perspective

For the past few weeks we receive anywhere from 2-4 calls a day from some politician or some group that supports some other politician with some “important” message. I have also been inundated with email full of “panic” and “need to act right now OR ELSE” messages against this candidate or that candidate.

After sulking for a day – I found a promising treadmill (NordicTrack C2500 ) and went to check it out. I ended up buying it and had an enjoyable run this morning. Unlike our […]

When I was little, not much beat going to my Grandma Z’s house and seeing the Cuckoo clock go off every hour. I have been thinking about getting one for my kids for awhile and after a long Friday – I went out and bought an authentic Cuckoo clock made in the Black Forest of Germany. All three kids run to it on the hour to hear/see everything.

I Voted: PSU Alumni Trustee Election 2012

I have been waiting to vote in this election (Alumni Trustee Election) since November of last year. While it is no secret who I want to win – I have high hopes for these three new members. Let’s hope the new elected trustees ruffle a few feathers and can get Penn State turned in the […]

My US Flag Was Made In China

I like to support the Illinois VFW and so this time around – for my donation they gave me a new US flag and flagpole kit. I was quite excited as I have been meaning to get one for awhile now. When I opened up the kit – I was pretty shocked to see that […]

What is Fiction Here?

On my way to lunch – a truck almost sideswiped me before realizing I was to the left of them and that caught my attention. When we came to the next stop light, the driver jumped out of his car while the light was red, took out a tape measure, and proceeded to measure the […]
