What's On Tap For Your Memorial Day Weekend

What's On Tap For Your Memorial Day Weekend
Being that it’s the official first weekend of summer, the weather looks like it’ll be a hot one for three straight days. Good thing I’ve got plenty of brats, dogs, and burgers in the freezer… Our weekend without knowing it got jammed packed with BBQ’s, wedding’s, vet visits, and the dreaded “yard work”. Also, I...

Plans For April Fools Day?

Plans For April Fools Day?
Everyone has to have someone that they always think about planning the perfect “April Fools Day” prank for… One year my now-wife, then-girlfriend decided it would be a fantastic idea to switch all my passwords to Facebook, AT&T, among others…not telling me until I got to her place later that day and wondering if someone...

Avoiding the Mall Like the Plague...

Woodfield, Hawthorne, Stratford Square, “Randhurst” (sorta still counts), or others of it’s kind. I make sure that from the Friday after Thanksgiving, I do my best to avoid them at ALL COSTS…at least until after the holidays.

Thanksgiving Day...Is There No Better Day Of The Year?

Thanksgiving means it’s time for the three “f’s”: Food, Family, and Football. It’s the time of year where watching football, eating copious amounts of food, and all the while attempting not to be the first family member to move from the couch or recliner is thoroughly accepted.
