The Christmas Thrill

The joy of Christmas is coming closer than you think in only 7 months another Christmas will have come an gone. Now of course if you are a keen shopper you will wait for sales to get the most for your Christmas giving dollar. You can catch the odd deal throughout the year but as everyone knows that Black Friday the day after Thanksgiving is when all the really great sales start. If you are looking for a deal on just about anything someone is trying to sell it. With the help of websites like bfads you can get the scoop on what ads are coming up for Black Friday before anyone else sees them in the newspaper. Even better than that you will even get the links to their websites so you can make your purchases online while everyone else is standing out in the cold waiting to fight with everyone else in line to get their big deal. As you all know video games are huge in my household with three boys there are always games on somewhere in the house. We'll be sure to shop Game Stop to get the greatest deal on the newest games and accessories for the Wii, Playstation or Xbox all three are going strong at our house.

Another Project Done

Well it's late into the evening or early in the morning depending on your view of things. I have completed another step in the bedroom renovation, gone is the old exterior door (yuck) in with the new modern 6 panel door. It took a little work as their was a lot of space to shim up but the job is done and the door is awaiting a coat of white paint to finish it up. It's time for bed now, another day of work on tap for tommorrow.

Tactical Wear made Cool

Are you looking for cool tactical wear, I recently found a website with all kinds of cool gear from pants, shirts, sunglasses and accessories and all kinds of tactical bags and tactical holster.
This gear is cool for the street, paint ball, war games or the real thing. They have lots of great styles and include free special deals when you place your order. Including free shipping on some orders. Checkout the great selection of new spring merchandise now.

The renovation is in full gear

We went out last night and got all kinds of supply for our renovation of our new bedroom. We got new doors for the entrance way and for the closet, 3 new lights, some electrical supply for some plugs. Of course new door knobs so the front and back match. It's nice this morning so I will be out to get a coat of paint on the front door in a couple of minutes

Treadmill Parade

With the in-laws here this weekend the treadmill is in popular demand. Usually my wife and I are the only ones fighting for the treadmill, my MIL is a dedicated walker too so she is in the mix this weekend. The poor treadmill is having a good workout for sure. I'm scheduled next possible to get on but with Jay's party this afternoon and still lots to do to get ready I might have to post pone my date with Tready until tonight when everything quites down.

Grocery fiasco

We are very budget oriented family and we are extreamly price aware. I was very disappointed on our latest visit to the SuperStore. With the raising cost of fuel every business is raising prices the bad thing is our pay cheques are not getting any bigger. 75% of the items we purchased yesterday were 20-30 cents higher than they were the last time we went to grocery store about 3 weeks ago. We purchase the same items every time we go to the grocery store and guess what the increase over the last grocery visit was over $50. It's not much wonder that most people live in poverty, and our government says it can't do anything to help us. When over 50% of the price of fuel is taxes on top of the 30% they take off the top of our paychecks. The oil companies are making record profits, 9 Billion in the last quarter I heard. You can easily tell who's scratching who's back.

Paint Ballin'

Not a Zero

What do you think about Coke Zero product? I really enjoy this product, I am a coke drinker but a couple of years ago I had to switch to Pepsi because I wanted a low calorie product and Diet Pepsi had a better flavor than Diet Coke. I was very excited to try Coke Zero when it came out and now I am back to my familiar Coke product, Coke Zero tastes so much like Regular Coke I wouldn't know the differance in a blind taste test. It is also encouraging to see Coke Zero start to be served in various restaurants.

Where will Tony Go?

It has been rumored lately that Tony Stewart may leave Gibbs Racing at the end of his contract. It is hard to figure what he might be doing, Gibbs is one of the power house racing teams in the garage today and it would be hard to imagine that someone who loves to win as much as Tony would consider leaving the equipment there. Perhaps he will go race at RCR with his good buddy Kevin Harvick. It has been said that he has been approached with ownership offers from Haas but it would be hard to believe he would leave to go to a team struggling to make races and be consistant. I'm sure the hype will start to turn up as we get into the summer months and Tony starts to heat up his performance as usual

Electrical Day

Our new bedroom is coming along nicely, we have done alot of work on getting it finished, we still have some work to do of course. The in-laws are here for the weekend and my FIL will be helping me run some electrical through so we can get some new plugs set up and hopefully another light, ours right now is run off a plug and we would much rather have it on a switch of course. We are heading out this morning to get the supplies while the girls all go shopping. Wish us luck

Youth finess

My In-laws came for a visit for the weekend and brought some cool gifts for the kids. The entire family has been really working on becoming more fit by watching what we eat and getting more exercise. When they arrived they brought in a kids sized Treadmill, Gazelle and exercise bike. These are designed for little kids to build a love of fitness.

The Toilet Paper Caper

I have been quandering a strange occurance in my home the last few months, that I haven't been able to figure out. Every time I go to the washroom the toilet paper holder is empty and the cardboard roll is there in the roller. I live in a household of 6 and if I don't change the roll no one will actually will do it. I can't figure out why, it's really not that difficult to change. One week I actually didn't do the change and after a few days there were 2 empty rolls on top of the roller just stacking up. I gave up and changed it and just except it as my responsibility to do now.

Rock On

What an exciting night in our household, we celebrated our son's 12th birthday and he really wanted a Rock Band set as his gift. His actual birthday was on Tuesday and he got a small gift from us then. He has been waiting for days now and to get him going I kept him wondering by telling him the new rug in his room was his gift. Finally we gave in and gave him his gift, yes the Rock Band and he and Kohl had lot's of fun rockin' out to the game and the songs.

Renovation Disappointment

I got my sunny day yesterday and started the paint job on the door, we were able to get a coat of primer on and a coat of paint. We thought it was dry so we closed up for the night. Of course it rained overnight and the paint bubbled and is ruined so I had to scrap it off, at least is scraped off easy. I will now wait for another sunny day to try to get it going again. Wish me luck, Sunday is supposed to be nice so we`ll have to see.

Vacation Blues

Rainy Day Blues, Vacation Day 8, Depression is starting to set in. It has rained every day except for yesterday and even at that it started raining at 11pm. It is absolutely frustrating I was so looking forward to taking a nice vacation and getting a lot of work done around the outside of the house and it just didn`t work. It`s back to work on Monday and guess what it`s supposed to rain again tommorrow I have some hope for Sunday it`s supposed to be sunny with around 16 C.

How Long Is Too Long

Coming up this Sunday is the Coca Cola 600 at Lowe's motor speedway, what will happen in this event, will we see an unlikely winner like last years Jamie McMurray or will one of the most consistant Lowe's drivers, convienently Jimmy Johnson who's sponsor is Lowe's return to victory Lane? The big question why do we need to see a 600 mile race. I'm a huge Nascar fan but to sit and watch 5-6 hours of racing is a bit much. Wouldn't it be something in face of the energy crisis we are all in if in good faith they shortened every Nascar race by 100 miles. How much gas would this save, 43 super stock cars. This would shorten the races considerably and no doubt increase attendance both at the track and at home on the TV as people are time starved and sometimes can't handle that much. I know the extra 100 miles is supposed to test the equipment.

What's Your Style Today

What is your definition of classic style? It could be any thing that works for you. I like celebreties that keep their style simple and not over the top. Brad and Angelina to me show a classic style they tend to wear basic items that anyone could find or wear and always look not over the top. My own personal style is normally based around Jeans and casual and I have a great collection of Dockers. Some well worn that I use for around the house and doing project work. With a big family, 4 kids we are super busy and it's all about keeping it simple. We still want to look good but at the same time keep the image of the average parent. There was recently launched on NBC a Dockers contest in which you can design your own take on the classic Dockers commercial. I've looked at some of the entrants and they are all very good, I would enjoy someone showing us the classic docker used for the everyday person in a 9-5 world while balancing a family and all the activities that go along with that. That would be the comercial I'd like to see. What would you like, get your video camera out and start rolling you may be the next famous commercial director.

Popularity pays 1,000,000

What a lucky day to be popular, Nascar's all-star race was held Saturday night, the field is set with winners from this season or last season and the top 2 cars from the night pre-race race the showdown. In addition the fans are allowed to vote in one driver. The Fan vote in driver has never won the all star event but that changed Saturday when Kasey Kahne picked up the cool million dollar check for the win.

A day in the life Contest

How would you like to be famous, it could happen to you if you have a good story to tell about a day in the life of your pants. Let your imagination and creative juices flow and come up with the most exciting story to tell and enter the Dockers contest, if your entry is selected as the best of the best your commercial will be shown on NBC. Your story can be as wild as your imagination will allow you to make it. Everyone knows the quality and style that comes with a pair of Dockers, and I'm sure everyone of you out there has atleast 1 pair in your closet or more likely on your body as we speak.
A day in the life of my favorite pants will happen on a day off from work, I have a well broken in pair of pants that I wear when my beautiful wife has jobs for me to do around the house, which is almost everyday off of my day job. Hey I'm on vacation this week and there are a ton of projects being mentioned. These pants are the most comfortable pair and I have had them for years, the pockets are great for projects because they all have a specific job, I have my hammer spot, screw pocket, driver pocket, spot to hook my measure tape on. They work hard but it is all worth it as our home becomes more beautiful, and my wife more happy. I think she likes my butt in those pants too because she is always watching me work. LOL.

Better than a Yard Sale

I recently discoverd through my M-I-L (mother in law) a cool new site that is called Kijiji, it is a classified ad site that you can post ads on for free and sell your stuff. I couldn't believe all the stuff she was selling it was incredible. Usually we store stuff all year and have a yard sale to get rid of it. Now yard sales can be fun, but they are a lot of work, and you depend on the weather co-opererating with you. Kijiji you take a picture do a write up, set your price and contact information and wait for people to contact you. It's alot of fun to set up and I made $100.00 off stuff that I didn't want around my house anymore this week.

Vacation Destination

One of the most memorable vacations I can remember was taken a few years back when we went on a trip through the states.

One of our favorited activities while were around Boston were the sightseeing tours what an incredible history there is to that city that I would have never realized.

Gas Soars Again!

What is going on, Blame Bush I say, think about in the 8 years since George has taken office down in the US Oil prices have soared in all time highs and to listen to the news it is only going to get worse. The big question is why, does it cost more now to get a barrel of oil out of the ground? Is there something more sinister behind it all, think about this, the oil companies one after another are recording record profits, in the BILLIONS of dollars. Why is that? Because their costs are not going up and there revenue is, simple as that. Think about this one the guy in control of the US right now is an Oil Tycon, do the math on this one.

Losing Weight

When it comes to losing weight who says that it is going to be easy? Losing weight is one of the most difficult things to do and without support and motivation from family and friends I don't think I would be where I am today. These amazing people keep me going and the results are starting to pay. I feel so fortunate to be able to do this on my own with support but for others diet and exercise just isn't enough and are living a life with obesity. There are so many options out there for them and with the cincinnati weight loss surgery program they will be guided through a step by step journey with first deciding if lap band is the right option for them. Getting on the road to a healthier way of life doesn't have to be done alone.

Time Off...

This week, ok month for that matter has been a rather busy and stressful time with work but at least I have next to look forward to some much needed vacation time to spend with the family and get some renovation work finished up. This weekend is filled with lots of excitement with the kids dance competition but next week SHOULD be a rather quiet week. I just have to get through the rest of today.

All-Star event

This weekend the eyes for the stock car world turn to a two week hiatus at their home track for the all star race this weekend and for next weekend for the longest event of the year the Coca Cola 600. Who do you think will win the all star event this year? Humpy Wheeler the president of the track has had an uncanny ability to pick the winner over 50% of the time. This year he has picked Carl Edwards to win, could this happen or will maybe Kevin Harvick defend his title, even more exciting could the recent king of non points events Dale Jr. pull off another exciting win, I know the fans would just love that possibility. Tune in Saturday night to see what happens

Dancers get Ready

Tommorrow the my kids are going to be competing in a dance competition, it's an exciting time for them as they have prepared this for almost a year. This is the crowning achievement of this years efforts. I am lucky to be taking vacation so I will be able to take in the events this year. My daughter will be competing in 3 events and my son in one event. They are still at the age where they are doing it all for fun so I don't think nerves are going to be an issue for either of them. I'm sure they will both do fine and we will be planning a celebration for afterwards no matter what the outcome as they certainly deserve it for the effort they have put in.

Scare Fest

I recently heard about a controversial new horror film Frontier(s) that has been stirring up the pot lately. It is due to be released in theaters on May 9th in a very limited release, you ask what is the controversy. The film is so visually disturbing that it was deemed un-rateable and therefore could not be put into wide release. It is actually abnormal to even have an unrated movie released to theatres at all so it is quite a victory that Frontier(s) has been able to do that. If I am beginning to peak your curiosity check out the select theater listings to see if it is being released in a city near you. I will have to travel to the Boston Circle theatre to see it so that may be a bit of a stretch as it is almost 13 hours away. Luckily if you aren't able to get to one of the theatres to see it you won't have to wait very long to see the film as it is scheduled to be released on DVD on May 13th. In viewing the trailer it appears we are in for a fantastic ride and some visual overload. I am cringing even know just recalling the images that I have seen so far. Get out and rent or purchase your copy as soon as you can and get your scare fest on it will be an incredible show.

What's with the weather

It has been freezing here forever, it is the middle of May and we are still using the heat. Last weekend we got snow, yes the white frozen stuff what's with that. I can't get over it, usually by this time in the spring the trees are turning green and we have blooms everywhere but this year there isn't any sign of buds anywhere. I can even remember that I had mowed the lawn at least 3 times by the long weekend last year and this year, not even close. Will spring let alone summer ever come this year?

House Renovation Complete?

I have been told that this afternoon the work on the house will finally be completed, it has been a hard couple of weeks waiting for the work to get finished.
A few things conspired against getting the work done, weather (rain/snow) for a week straight and then the wrong siding was ordered. Anyway if everything lines up correctly by tonight I will have siding on my house and the inside windows will be finished up so I can paint the trim. Let's hope!

We are in the middle of changing rooms around in the house, when we moved in a year ago we fit everyone into their rooms, Jay had the cool room over the attached garage and Blake got the puny little room with a custom made bed because it wasn't big enough to fit a twin bed, ok he was only 2' tall at the time. Well things have changed in a year, we were turning the garage into a family room and in the mean time Jay grew about a foot and was constantly banging his head off the ceiling in his room. We needed a change so we moved into the new family room, jay moved into our room and Blake moved into Jay's old room (perfect for a little 3' boy. Everyone seems happy now and we are just finishing getting everything organized.

New Advertising Opportunity

In this day and age there are so many opportunities to explore in advertising products and services. Blogging is an exciting and open format for people to express themselves online for everyone in the world to access. One of the newest and most exciting avenues that has recently been developed to bring advertisers together with bloggers is at It is only in its early stages but it is an exciting environment that brings companies together with bloggers and also creates and online community for bloggers to build relationships with other bloggers. In the future I am hoping to see opportunities to speak about more commmon everyday products that we all use in our daily life. It would be cool to speak about New product launches from favorite companies like Coca Cola, they seem to have such interesting new product variations that would be fun to discuss. Other favorite companies of mine I would love to see would be anything chocolate, I am a Chocoholic and love when Candy bar companies come up with new variations on old favorite products. I recently tried a reese whipped bar which is a lower fat version of the favorite reese product. I can't wait to see what comes next with Social Spark it is going to revolutionize the paid for advertising market and is really revolutionary in it's thinking.

Silver Metal

Did you know that one of the most prescious metals today has more uses than just monetary. I was recently researching prescious metals and after searching through some internet sites I found some very interesting facts about silver. I discovered that silver is not only used for coins and jewellery but also for industrial use as well. It has been estimated that more than 95% of the mined silver has already been used in industrial construction because of it's unique properties including strength, malleability, ductibility and ability to endure extreame heat conditions. Interestingly enough Silver is also used for health care products as it possess uniques anti-bacterial properties. To care for burn victims, dressings recieve a layer of fabric containing silver which can prevent secondary infections to the wounded area. It certainly was very exciting discovering the history and uses of one of the worlds most valuable commodities.

Renovation Frustration

Just got the call from the renovator and although we were expecting our work on the windows and garage door replacement to be completed today it will be delayed until next week. Someone is coming today to finish up the framing of windows but the siding didn't arrive and had to be re-ordered for next week. It can be frustraiting when you want the job done and it is delayed, especially the front entrance of your house looks like shambles. One good thing though is until all the work is completed and signed off on we don't have to start making any payments for the job.

Horror fans unite the most controversial gore fest is about to be released to theaters. This film is so controversial that it is being released as not rated and is only going to be in 10 cities for less than a week. Normally if a movies is rated so harshly it can not even be released in theaters but releasing in theaters on May 9th for one week only is one of these movies, Frontier(s) this movie will test the boundries of what you can handle. The movie starts out with the main character in Paris she hooks up with her ex-boyfriend and a couple of thugs to pull off a daring heist. On the run they hide out in what they think is a quite peaceful inn but little do they know very soon their lives will take a desperate change. The inn keeper has a few surprises up his sleeve for these folks and what will unravel will push all visual limits to what you would believe could be. There is torture and violence around every corner and you will be haunted by the images you take in. If you are unable to make it to one of the cities that are showing Frontier(s) select theater listings. don't worry it will be released on DVD on May 13th so you wont have to wait very long to get your own dose of this unrated gore fest

The sun is shining

Well after a week and a half of straight rain, we were blessed yesterday with a sunny day. We were able to get some work done around the house, gyprock on the new wall in the soon to be unveiled family room. We also had Jay's final basketball tournament of the year where the Jaguars finished 3rd overall, they were excited with medals in tow and newly promoted team Manager (Carrie). They looked like they had fun and coming up next I hear they are going to have a year end game against their schools girl team. It should be a fun game to watch, I'll have to be sure to take some pictures of that game for sure. The sun is shining on us again today so we'll see what we get into today.


Interestingly enough every once in a while a movie is created that is so over the top it truly makes you cringe in disbelief at what is being displayed in front of you. Releasing in theaters on May 9th for one week only is one of these movies, Frontier(s) a movie so bloody and Gorey it was labled with an unrated rating. From what I saw in the trailer it appears we are in for one hell of a ride with this movie. There is ultimate violence and gore around every corner. Torturous villains bent on pushing the limits of human tolerance to their breaking point and beyond in his dark forbidding inn. I tend to be a bit on the squeamish side and almost feel sick to my stomach with the images burned into my head from the Trailer. Eerily enough seeing the trailer has peeked my curiosity about the film and I find myself needing to find out where everything goes, normally I would have avoided this type of film. I can certainly understand the controversy over this movie and it absolutely pushes the limits of anything we have seen in the past. The movie is only being released in 10 cities, I will have to travel to "the Circle" in Boston to see the flick.

Saturday Nights Racing

Well it was an exciting race in the end last night for the Nascar series in Richmond. They managed a last minute sell-out crowd, the 33rd consecutive for the event. It appeared for much of the night that Denny Hamlin was easily going to win he dominated the entire race until the ending laps. The Fan favorite do Dale Jr. gallantly took the lead and the crowd was excited as it was 2 years ago at this event he took his last Checkered flag, what an appropriate end if he could pull of the win. In the end though after getting booted by a loose Busch and a few beer cans littering the track it was Clint Bowyer celebrating in victory lane.

Birthday survival

I have survived another birthday, the big 33 has come and gone. I had to work last night which kind of sucked and made it a rushed party with the family. We had spaghetti and salad with yummy cake for supper. Carrie and the kids got me some work out shorts/shirt and a new pair of sleep pants "The perfect Sleep pants" as the label says. I broke in the shirt and shorts on the treadmill last night and the sleep pants I would have to say might just live up to the hype. Midtown brand from Zellers for only 12.97 and they are better than pairs that I've gotton from other places for 20-30.00. Here's to making it another year.
