Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone out there has a great Christmas. I think I’m gonna stop blogging until after the first of the year. Not much politically going on (except the usual Chicago corruption stuff). Music wise I think we’re going to go see Webb Wilder on the 27th, and Hillbilly Casino is playing a ton of […]

Weekend Sports Thoughts

Still find myself watching the Olympics, a whole lot more than I’d intended. But I also watched some racing too. Here are some thoughts on what I watched over the weekend: NASCAR Trucks: They were at “Nashville” Superspeedway Saturday night. Funny how “Nashville” Superspeedway isn’t even in the same county as Nashville. Anyway, Johnny Benson […]

Avoid Member’s Edge – Block Third Party Billing

We noticed we were being charged $20 for voice mail on our AT&T bill this month. The only problem is, we turned off voice mail at least a year ago. Turns out it was from a “third party billing company” called ILD Teleservices, AKA Members Edge. I called the number AT&T gave me to get […]

I don’t get tipping. I mean, I understand the concept of paying someone a percentage of your food bill, but I don’t get it. You’re supposed to tip someone between 15% and 20% for waiting on you. That means if you have a $100 restaurant bill, you have to kick in at least another $15 […]
