Tonight was the last concert of the Ottawa Park Concert Series. A great crowd came out to watch and enjoy the music. A huge thank you to all the bands that participated in the series. If you live in the area and missed out, next year is just around the corner. If you came by during any of the bands playing throughout the series I would like to thank you as well. Good night all and be safe.


Finding out who's strong...

As you all know Donald Trump is making the rounds throughout the media. Most of them can't stand him, my wife thinks he's a waste of space. I on the other hand find him interesting and amusing at times. Look, the man says what's on his mind without any filters. That is one tactic he has that the other candidates don't and can't have. The man is a business man - not a politician. He has his own money backing so he doesn't have to put on a filter mask before any scheduled interviews or speeches. I for one will be watching this "race" in the next few months. It's early folks, what's happening now will probably not have any affect next year when it's closer to November. Sit back, grab your favorite drink and stick an umbrella in it. It's fun times ahead.


All work and no play...

WOW, I've been on the road and super busy the past few weeks. looks everything is smoothing out so far. I had a few deliveries out of state and a few out of town. Thanksgiving went well, hopefully those of you reading this had an awesome one as well. I will post a few things this afternoon - at work and things are picking up here. Until then - See Ya. :)


TMNT: The Movie

Came home from work today and upon peeling my work clothes off and finding something more comfortable I decided to find something on Netflix that I can watch until my wife gets home. Well it turns out that Netflix has the first TMNT movie from the early 90's I think. I have not seen the remake just yet but I found the first one to be a bit corny but entertaining. If you have this movie or a Netflix account please watch it. Helps pass the time by.

Seems to be alright...

Currently watching The Legend of Hurcules. Somewhat of the same story as most other versions brought out by many developers. This one has a bit more violence to it then most but it can still use a bit more story and special affects couldn't hurt either. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. Now if the movie makes you blow chunks then please by all means let me know what it was that had you feeling sick. If you enjoyed please let me know as well - maybe I'll give it another try.


I'm back boys and girls. Had some time to rethink what route is best for me and this blog. I will try to keep things flowing smooth here but no promises. Let me start out by saying Congrats to the Bulls for have a good season thus far. The team is looking really great. Rose is in excellent shape and Mr. Noah is on point as well. I was looking forward to watching them play in person but as it turns out I don't have the time to take off to do so. So I have asked my lovely wife to take some photos for me when she goes to CHI-Town on the seventeenth of this month on a work related trip. Hope she gets a chance to take some shots of Jordan's restaurant and of course his statue. I will keep you guys posted as to what happened and post some pics as well. I'm back folks, bare with me. :)


50th Anniversary

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the famous and truly momentous speech "I Have a Dream". Please join me in taking a few moments of your day to honor and remember the man that stood strong on helping our country heal, support and most of all Stand together as one.


Could be possible - with the right support...

Just read an article on the Toledo Blade website about one of the many candidates running for mayor. Mr. Collins is a good friend of mine so I know him very well. He has an idea that could work but it would have to involve others to pitch in in order for it to come to fruition. Collins unveils revitalization plan is the title of the article where he talks about how his revitalization can take place and what he would need for it to take off. I agree with him on the neighborhood reboot. Where I used to live we had about five homes empty, of those five homes two were left for mother nature to handle. Luckily we didn't have them (the homes) look really bad where ply-wood was needed to cover windows and doors. I know that a few out there will start to holler out "Why should I clean that up - it's doesn't belong to me". Well I hate to break it to those folks but when a home next to yours or in the same block looks really bad it affects the other homes, maybe not physically but it does when it comes to the value of your home and the neighborhood. Give the article a quick read and let me know what your thoughts are.


Can "BMI" really be a subpar measure of your health?

Now before you go ahead and freak out with what the title says please give the article a good read before doing so. Now I am safe to say that I am obese (husky actually) and I know that I have a real problem with eating the wrong things at the wrong time as well as the wrong portion. With that said I am working out four times a week for an hour each day. Between weight lifting and a quick cardio which includes bike riding and walking I feel great. In my opinion I used to follow the BMI setup but I can agree with the article and the scientists when they say it could be different for other individuals who suffer from obesity. For example, I have a nice size stomach but my back, arms and chest are well in shape with some firm muscles as well. Given that muscle is heavier then fat I tend to stay away from the BMI chart as well as the scale. Check out the article and decide what best suits your need. CLICK HERE



Well, not sure ow many of you are fans of the show Survivor. If you are a fan of the show then let me start by saying that yes there is another Survivor coming up and this one seems to be a bit more interesting. Past players are coming back but this time time instead of head to head with strangers, they have to go against a family member. Now my wife has always loved Rupert as a contestant and now that he will be on the roster chances are she will be rooting for him.Except that now he has his wife as an opponent. This could very well be a drama filled series. Check it out if interested - I forwarded the info to my wife in hopes that she will join me in watching.
