Let’s play a game: in-stock or not?

Let’s play a game: in-stock or not?

Let’s play a game. Pretend you are shopping for a Star Modelo B 9mm pistol on the Web site of Southern Ohio Guns, a major firearms distributor. You have an account with them. You see some handguns as listed as “out of stock,” and other handguns have a price next to them. No tags for […]

Garrity 1 watt Luxeon LED spotlight review

Let’s play a game. You’re sitting on the couch at home at night, watching television. Snap, the power goes out. Flip the light switch: nothing. You know there’s one flashlight in the house … but where did you put it? Was it in the kitchen pantry? Maybe in the nightstand upstairs in the master bedroom? […]

P90 Home Fitness Program review: 90/90 complete, week 22

Stockpile your Teavana Peach Oolong tea!

Stockpile your Teavana Peach Oolong tea!

If you have any peach Oolong tea from Teavana left you may want to stockpile it. Apparently the tea retailer has discontinued their very yummy tea. There is a possibility retail outlets that still have some in stock, but the Web site is all out. Starbuck wrote in to ask WTF was up, and check […]

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Over three years ago, I wrote a post about screaming children on airplanes. I used to take the redeye back from California as part of my job, and my current work found me taking the redeye once more. It turns out I’m not the only one pissed off by misbehaving babies on flights: Anthony Layser […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STARBUCK!

Happy birthday to Starbuck, who has had quite a year starting her own blog, finishing several pastry classes, and generally showing up her bosses at the desert shop. I am also very grateful for all of the times you have watched the dogs and left “sample” goodies at the house 🙂 I know this has […]

A Rough Start

A Rough Start

My flight for California leaves this afternoon. I have always taken the 6AM flight previously; having to plan a mid-day departure has thrown me for a little bit of a loop. I decided to play it safe and go to bed early — about midnight. I watch two episodes of The Big Bang Theory and […]

Is that a prayer squat salutation, or are you just happy to see me?

Is that a prayer squat salutation, or are you just happy to see me?

I know I just wrote about P90 a few days ago, but I am excited to have just seven sessions left. I have decided to start with a Hawaii session, then Phase 1, then Phase 2. Yeah, I’m going to gimp it along this last week, but it’s hard getting motivated when the longer Phase […]
