TMX Elmo

Way to go America.
First, we have Fisher-Price who creates a toy in short supply knowing full well of what the demand will be.
Second, we have those who  buy up the supply and try to resell it 3x or more of its original cost of 40.00.
A perfect example of "The Great American Way".
This is why the rest of the world hates us so much. 
It’s why we hate ourselves.


The dining room is done!  It looks fantastic; just like a pro.  I only had two minor injuries as previously noted.. the concussion and my thumb.  I expected so many more.  I’m getting good when it comes to home improvement.

Winter wash

I have been waiting all winter for the opportunity to slip on my snowshoes and head to the woods.
The only problem is we have had above average… make that record setting… temperatures.
We had limited snow in November, December mostly rain/snow mix, and January was a heat wave.
February is about over.  Still no snow in site… we did manage to hit zero….Soon it will be March.
I still hold out hope that a storm will come producing enough snow for a nice winter hike, but if this weather pattern continues we’ll be having summer by the end of March.


Its always said to go to the types of places ; to attract the type of people you want to be with.

When one is busy in life at an age where one has many responsiblities, the office/work  seems to be the only place you’re ever able to get to. 

If any one has any suggestions on how to sucessfully integrate the two (business and personal), I would greatly appreciate hearing them.
