NASCAR Richmond Thoughts

Just a few random racing thoughts heading into the weekend races at Richmond. MORE PLATES PLEASE: How about those races from Talladega? Both the NASCAR Cup race and the NASCAR Series races were pretty exciting. We should have more restrictor plate racing. LESS ESPN PLEASE: In a move that shows why ESPN should never have […]

Cruising Thoughts

We docked back in Miami on Easter Sunday after a 9 night cruise on the Norwegian Jewel. The ship visited five islands in the Southern Caribbean and had a total of three sea days. This was our third cruise, our first (and probably last) on a Norwegian ship. When we booked the cruise through Sam’s […]

Comcast, there’s a bug in my DVR.

Ah, the joys of having a DVR: You can watch TV when it’s convenient and skip those pesky commercials. When Comcast started offering the DVR’s here in Nashville, I couldn’t wait to get one.  I actually drove out to their office on Lebanon Road to pick one up. So, we’ve had it for a couple […]

Viva NBC’s Las Vegas?

I admit it. I’ve gotten interested in the NBC TV show Las Vegas. I’ve always liked James Caan as an actor, and the storylines were pretty entertaining. So I was disappointed with Friday night’s fifth season premier. It resolved the cliff-hangers from season four in about five minutes, then took the viewer on a path […]

Survivor: China – Episode 1

The new season of Survivor started last night. This time they’re in the middle of mainland Communist China instead of on an island somewhere. Actually, it appears that they’re on islands in the middle of China’s biggest lake. I was disappointed in the outcome last night of Survivor: China. They voted off a guy named […]

Big Brother 8: The Finale

Well, I was wrong in my prediction that Daniele would win Big Brother 8. It pretty much came down to who played the game better, and I’ll have to begrudgingly agree that Dick did. He did what he had to do, when he had to do it to advance. Of course, that wouldn’t have been […]

Big Brother 8: The End

I watched the penultimate episode of Big Brother 8 last night. It’s funny: early on I was rooting for the Donatos, but then Dick started his stuff which totally turned me against them. I guess I’m rooting for Daniele, but it’s hard not to hold some of Dick’s actions against her. She had every opportunity […]

The Simpsons

We finally saw the Simpsons Movie the other day. We’d tried to see it once before, but were way early and decided to see the Harry Potter movie instead. Overall it was a pretty funny movie. I guess what surprised me was the number of kids in the theater. Since it’s been out for a […]

Big Brother 8

I admit it: I’m a fan of reality TV. In the game-show sub-genre of reality TV, I like Survivor, Amazing Race, and yes, Big Brother. In the real-life sub-genre, I like Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels, Survivorman and other shows that actually show real life. Regarding this season’s version of Big Brother… The only decent person […]

Little Known Las Vegas Facts Plus Visitor Tips

During our recent trip to Las Vegas, I came across these little known facts about the city. I hope you find them interesting. In a casino, the shortest distance between two points always passes by at least a dozen slot machines. Also, the shortest distance between two points inside a hotel passes by at least […]
