Happy New Year

What a year, if you are like most of us (me included) you can't wait for 2008 to end...

So have a good night...try not to get caught up in the amateur night stupidness (unless you love going to Time Square with thousands of others puking on your shoes)...

Let's hope '09 is our year...maybe a proper champagne right after midnight will start it off right...

Merry Christmas

Pet Peeve Alert

Anyone who walks in a major metro area, or in any place where a lot of people are found, hopefully can agree with this pet peeve.



You know what I mean, the people who are walking down the street texting/emailing/surfing the net. Now full discloser I am a crackberry addict too (Muffy wife was getting miffed at me so i got her one too, no she's hooked-post for another day). These people may be the same that can't walk and chew gum! As the head down the street, or up the stairs or in the mall they start working their phones/PDA's and guess what??? They slow to a crawl!!


I mean REAL slow, and the worst part is they don't even know it...It's like a traffic jam on the street, for no reason. I can't tell you the times I almost run people over as they doddle down the main streets. I wish I could just blame tourist, or women, or men, or young, etc...It's an equal opportunity problem..


People, you need to read that important message, trust me I understand, just either move to the side or at least be aware of the crowd bottle necking behind you...

Snow and Ice

With winter showing it's strength this past weekend, It's time to start thinking about how to get to grandma's house for Christmas dinner, or hopefully to the mountains for skiing!

With the fall in oil prices, the pump price for regular gas is back to a reasonable level. Anything under the crazy level last year and this past summer is good in my mind. So, we can get our big heavy SUV's out again and play in the snow....

The old standby of the Chevy Suburban always comes to mind, however we have a friend who is in love with their Lexus ...Never owned one, does anyone else think it is good in the New England snow, ice?

Black Friday, SAD

Ok, now it's time to start thinking about Christmas. I was sitting around at home this past weekend and saw on the news how a bunch of savages trampled to death a Walmart employee. These "shoppers" (I call them criminals) pushed the doors right off the hinges. Even when the police came to assist the downed man, the crowds push over the policemen.

What is wrong with people? Do we really believe in this economy there will not be another sale on those stupid electronics or bed sheets , or whatever as Christmas gets closer? I am willing to bet that the prices the week before Christmas will be cheaper!

Stop the madness!!

Did anyone go out looting, er I mean shopping that day?

Muffy vs "Real Houswives"

So, don't ask me why, we were watching the Real Housewives of Orange Co on TV. These women are unreal, they act like spending money is their God given right. The only time a "marriage" seems to be in trouble is when the husband loses some $$

So, a new twist...send a preppy New England girl out to live among these women...that could be the funniest thing on TV...

(Best Housewives quote "Do you speak Canadian?" (one women, the smart one, living in a 5 million dollar house and talking to her son's girlfriend visiting from Canada).
