My wife and I like to think strategically about our future. Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest. In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money. The following is an… Continue reading As a Multi-Millionaire…
The Hot is Here to Stay
Well…that’s it, folks; it’s official. Summer is here and it’s not going to be getting any cooler for a while. Enjoy the longer days, bar-b-q’s, swimming, and sun. The lake still isn’t up to a satisfactory level for those using it recreationally, but at least it’s still here! Balthazar and I swam in it just… Continue reading The Hot is Here to Stay

I had first assumed that the comment was spam, though the suspect spam did not follow my preconceived notions of spam. It had no sales… Continue reading Polar Cities
57% Chance of Surviving a Zombie Attack
57% It’s not particularly good, though not all together bad either. I think the quiz is rigged. It never asked me how good I was with knives. Thanks for the meme, Spazz.

I haven’t read the book myself, but I did read The Power of Intention which I am to understand is a similar concept. Emily retells her two month account of following the book’s advice and finds inspiration for… Continue reading Emily Yoffe Learns ‘The Secret’
Balthazar’s first trip (at 4-years-old) to Disney World is coming up. We told him about it last night and it has been non-stop question and harassment about it. We were careful not to tell him until just days before we left. We wanted him to have one day at school to brag to his friends,… Continue reading Disney World!
I just bought a new DVD player to replace our perfectly working existing version. But this one is so much cooler! It has a USB port on the front, which most people gloss over at the mere mention of interrelations between household electronics and computer technology. However, I see the potential here. With a USB… Continue reading Philips DVP5960
