Laptops for the Council

Posted on July 31, 2007 - Filed Under computers, Ranting, This Town | Leave a Comment

Been meaning to mention this for a long time but never seem to remember.  Many months back I heard that our town Council were all getting laptops.  As a business owner who sells and services computers, I wasn’t even aware of it until well after the fact, when I saw an article about it in […]

Cellphone Accessories

Posted on July 31, 2007 - Filed Under review | Leave a Comment

There’s no place like online when it comes to buying certain things, especially cellphone accessories. My wife’s last cellphone was a Panasonic, very slim phone with a battery barely 1/4 of an inch thick. After it was just a little over a year old, the battery wouldn’t hold a charge anymore. […]

Exhibition Week

Posted on July 30, 2007 - Filed Under Entertainment, Fun, This Town | Leave a Comment

This week will probably be a slow one at the store. The Exhibition starts Tuesday and runs until Saturday, so I expect most of our business this week will be people wanting to sell stuff so they can afford to go to the Ex. Just like last year and the year before and so on.
There […]

Chasing Amy

Posted on July 30, 2007 - Filed Under DVD, Entertainment | Leave a Comment

This third movie in the Jersey saga is my least favorite of the bunch.  Jay & Silent Bob played such a small part in this one and overall it was just too ‘serious’ compared to the others.  The whole plot of Holden (Ben Affleck) falling for a lesbian (Joey Lauren Adams) while his room-mate Banky […]

Making a house into a Home

Posted on July 27, 2007 - Filed Under Fun | Leave a Comment

We bought our house almost 3 years ago, and so far we still haven’t gotten around to doing much customizing to it. We had the back yard smoothed out and planted grass, and had a small deck built on the back as well. Aside from that we’ve done very little. The wife […]

Disappearing Streets – Pt. II

Posted on July 27, 2007 - Filed Under Forest Street, This Town | Leave a Comment

Yesterday I wrote about the endangered Victorian Streetscape here in Yarmouth, and today I’ll be talking briefly about the nearby streets that have already converted to curb & guttering. Most of the original trees on these other streets are already gone and the ones that remain are dying, as can be seen in the pictures […]

Cabin Rentals

Posted on July 27, 2007 - Filed Under Fun | Leave a Comment

If you’re looking to get away for a weekend or even longer, an idea to consider is renting a cabin. It’s a better value than a hotel and more private than a tent (and with a cabin you don’t get wet when it rains). Pigeon Forge cabin rentals in the Smokey Mountains offer […]

Zodiac & The Number 23

Posted on July 27, 2007 - Filed Under DVD, Entertainment | Leave a Comment

This weeks movies start off with The Zodiac, I’ve only watched half of it so far as it’s about two and a half hours long. It’s based on a true story of a serial killer who started his killing in 1969 and as far as I know he has never been caught. It’s very possible […]

Auto detailing

The young people around here sure love their cars, and they love tweaking them and fitting them with after-market parts. Of course it’s not just people in this area, they’re everywhere! Automotive detailing supplies is yet another way to customize your vehicle to make it stand out in the crowd. Make sure […]

Disappearing streets

Posted on July 26, 2007 - Filed Under Forest Street, This Town | Leave a Comment

Even though I use or cross this street almost every day, I never realized how rare a street it is in this day and age. It’s recently been brought to my attention that old Victorian Streetscapes like this are an endangered species. After comparing photos taken over 100 years ago it’s surprising how […]

I like shopping online, for some things anyway, and one of the great things about online shopping is the large amount of online coupons you can get to make the deals even better. Webby Planet has coupons & deals for thousands of online stores ranging from free shipping to cash discounts and rebates. […]

Clerks

Posted on July 25, 2007 - Filed Under DVD, Entertainment | Leave a Comment

A great movie that everyone should see at least once. I first saw it shortly after it was released because a friend of mine said it was awesome. It took a few minutes to get into and at first I was thinking to myself ‘is this really going to be black & white […]
