A Whole New ExperienceRead More

Everyone knows I am a nerd and my nerdery knows few bounds. One of my favorite pastimes is watching Star Trek. Recently, I came across Star Trek: The Next Generation on Hulu and I was pleasantly surprised – The Next Generation is now available in high definition!

Visiting Wal-Mart was Quite a TripRead More

Friday night, I decided to take a little excursion to Wal-Mart in Plymouth. After this trip, all I could think about was getting out of there and contemplating whether or not I should ever return.

Time Change is Really Messing with My Sleeping HabitsRead More

This time change is really messing with me and it makes no sense! Before the time change, my sleeping habits were greatly improved - getting a full eight hours of sleep every night was a good habit to have. Now that "summer time" is here, I can't seem to get to bed at a reasonable time nor am I waking up early, like I prefer. Daylight saving time is a crock, if you ask me.

Two Green Juice RecipesRead More

The World Better Prepare for When I'm a BillionaireRead More

Can’t you just see me sitting here at my desk singing the “Billionaire” song by Travie McCoy? OK, I’m going to admit it, I do. I think it’s a good song. I sit here listening to Spotify quite a bit while I’m working.

Testing My New Nissei Blood Pressure MonitorRead More

A couple of weeks ago, I got a new Nissei DSK-1011 Blood Pressure Monitor to potentially replace my Reli-On HEM-412CREL monitor that I got at Wal-Mart several years ago. I've been dealing with high blood pressure for several years now and accurate monitoring is important to me.
