Just for the heck of it I decided to pick up some additional domains earlier this morning to go along with .COM and .US. I doubt these pickups will receive additional traffic, but it just did not seem right to leave these available for someone else to reference.
April 15 may have come and gone, but the sting of Big Government’s tax bite is always present. Congressman Lynn A. Westmoreland 3rd District of Georgia has the following to say about our new Health Care spending machine (AKA ObamaCare): “Just this week we learned that the Joint Committee on Taxation – Congress’s official scorekeeper [...]
Don’t fret from the lack of updates. I decided to take a mini sabbatical; call it Spring Break 2010! Regular programming will resume shortly. Stay tuned and you will be the first to know.
We interrupt the fun and games to take a quick look at an important topic – Health Care reform. It is bad enough that for a majority of Americans, health care is unaffordable, however it is worse that President Obama’s agenda is being pushed on unsuspecting Americans. If you are in a position where you [...]
Hey, it’s not what you’re thinking. Well, probably not unless you were expecting an article on the spring mowing season. Last November my Toro (20037) Super Recycler 21” 6.5hp Personal Pace mower bit the dust. I purchased this puppy back in May 2003 for just under $530 (including tax). It was relatively trouble free, except [...]
It has been a while since I went hells blazing, stuffs to the wall crazy, so I figured it was time … There And Back Again I spent last week in Calgary, which explains why the site experienced a severe slowdown. Thursday and Friday marked the first time in over 150+ days (8 months) that [...]
I am traveling to Calgary for business; will be back to regular posting action starting Saturday. Check back daily for some articles to help you pass the time. Yes, I have several articles lined up, coming your way in my absence. Most likely I am going to miss a few days of posting, but that [...]
This weekend I am offering up another round of site maintenance for your viewing pleasure. Several upgrades are in the works, and should be appearing throughout the weekend. Tags Away With the upgrade to WordPress 2.9.2, I can introduce tags, or more importantly, Clouds of Tags. Calvert Games has amassed over 2000 articles in its [...]
The weather this weekend has been absolutely wonderful – upper 60s and blue skies on Saturday and Sunday. We spent most of our free time outdoors – throwing footballs, practicing soccer, riding bikes, going on long walks, and cleaning up the year. You get the picture. It would have been a perfect weekend for shooting [...]
I have been playing around with a lot of different WordPress themes the last 12 or so hours, and finally found one that I think will stick. It is different than the old 3 column layout, but I think it is nice and crisp. The design is fairly simple and easy to modify. I think [...]
Yea me! I just upgraded from Word Press 2.2 to 2.9, which is a pretty substantial upgrade to [knock on wood] not experience any issues with the upgrade process. For those of you that are interested, I followed these fairly simple upgrade instructions. Of course, like a good company man, I did a backup, made [...]
I plan to perform some much needed site maintenance over the weekend. Hopefully most of this will be transparent to the masses. Starting tonight you may see some error messages, strange behavior, and otherwise stuff that may make you scratch your head. You need not worry. While maintenance on this site has long been neglected, [...]
I have been posting and posting and posting, for a long time. Maybe too long; maybe not long enough. For better or worse, I have thrown up daily content for something akin to 7+ months, which is a pretty nice achievement, but I am going to have to end this run sooner or later. But [...]
I am sitting at the auxiliary kitchen bar watching it snow. The kids have already got fill of the cold, wet stuff, so I am indulging on an Ultra Amber (or two) looking for some entertainment value on the web; legitimate of course! This eweek article pretty much pisses on Apple’s iPad parade. Steve Jobs [...]
The Columbus area is expecting snow Friday: 1-2 inches of accumulation. The city will shut down – grocery stores will be raided, schools will be closed, and non essential employees will not have to report to their places of employment. It is funny watching the panic and chaos. Yesterday my wife went to the grocery [...]
