Online Coupons

Seeing a lot of action recently on Groupon and Living Social. I even signed up to get the email alerts...

I wonder if a lot of people are really using them? I know I am tempted every time I get one-although not sure I really need Rumba lessons 1/2 price...For me some of them are more exciting because I commute to NYC. The Suburban online coupons are not as good yet--Side note FourSquare is starting to have great deals in and out of the city!!

I found this post on a blog and thought I'd share it (here is the direct link

iPad 2

So Apple sold out of the new iPad 2 within hours of the release...
I know many people who bought the first iPad and they all love it. It is now proven to be a game changer, and the begining of the end of laptops. Soon nobody will carry big bulky laptops (never thought we would call laptops bulky) but instead just an iPad and some cables....
What are your thoughts?

Hope not

Preppy Wines!!!!

When I was out skiing with the family over Christmas break I got a nice email from Amy over at Preppy Vines. She and her crew have followed their true love, making wine!

As many of you may know I follow one of my loves, drinking wine (LOL), so I thought I'd bring their information to you...

I have not have the pleasure of trying one of the two varieties yet. But with names like Preppy Vines Pinot Noir and Popped Collar Pinot they are worth a try, don't you think?

If anyone has tried them yet please let us know! I am always looking for new and fun wines!


ps. I am always open to share fun ideas with people, just drop me a line (email is under "preppy guy info" just use @ instead of the at
