She’s Home!

Posted on June 25, 2008 - Filed Under Health, Life | 5 Comments

After a long sleepless night in the hospital she would have begged to come home if the Dr. had so much as hinted that she would need to stay longer. Good news though, as soon as the Doc came in to see us he said she could go home today if she wanted to, […]

Home Inspections

Posted on June 25, 2008 - Filed Under building | 1 Comment

Even though the house we bought was new, we still had a home inspection done before we signed the papers. While it wasn’t really needed for a new house we still felt it was a good idea. If buying an older home I’d think it would be absolutely necessary to make sure everything is in […]

Diet Pills

There’s a lot of diet pills such as lipovox floating around the market out there and not all of them are as good as they’re cracked up to be. Before taking any kind of unprescribed medication it’s always best to do lots of research in advance and talk to your doctor anyway. It […]

Another Crazy Woman update

Posted on June 24, 2008 - Filed Under Health, Life | 1 Comment

Today she’s doing much better. She’s starting to eat again and can sit up on her own although with a lot of difficulty. Apparently the night shift nurses tonight aren’t so good as the ones who were on during the day. They’re not helping her to sit up or walk, even though […]

After Surgery, Doing Ok

Posted on June 23, 2008 - Filed Under Health, Life | 3 Comments

Just a quick update; after a relatively sleepless night we headed to the hospital at 6:30am, filled out a little more paperwork and then waited. At 7:45am Jan was taken into the OR and thus my waiting continued. She was out of the OR at around 10:30am and is currently still in the […]

Lego Indiana Jones

I played the Lego Star Wars games a while back and this month saw the release of Lego Indiana Jones. I enjoyed the others so I decided to check this one out too. Overall it’s a very fun game. Like the Star Wars one you journey through a variety of levels […]

This really isn’t the best time of year for snowboarding talk but the way things go it’ll be winter before you know it. Of course just because it’s summer here doesn’t mean you can’t go boarding in other places, although global warming is probably taking it’s toll on good ski resorts worldwide. If […]

Tomorrow’s the Big Day

Posted on June 22, 2008 - Filed Under Health, Life | Leave a Comment

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, Jan goes into the hospital for her surgery. For those that don’t know, she has large uterine fibroids and lately they’ve been giving her some trouble. Due to their size and the way they’ve grown into the uterine wall, the only real option for removing them is to […]

Just a reminder for the locals that we do custom made network and TV cables. Any length (up to 1000 feet) can be made, although the signal tends to weaken on really long ones (200’+). I typically only carry Cat 5E and RG6 in stock although I can order the other types (RG59 […]

Free Entertainment

Living next to a golf course is a mixed blessing. One on hand it sucks in the winter, there are no trees to block the wind so it howls around the house pretty much 24 hours a day. On the other hand in the summer I have to endure a steady ‘clack’ as […]

Internet use Rentals

Posted on June 20, 2008 - Filed Under Uncategorized | Leave a Comment

With summer here and tourists flooding the town (hah! right…) it’s time to start moving things around again. As with every year we give some thought to doing in-store computer rentals, for internet use and such, but now we have even less room than before since we’re in a smaller store. I do […]

ATI Radeon 4850

Posted on June 20, 2008 - Filed Under computers | Leave a Comment

Wow, it seems like the Radeon 3850/3870 cards have only been out for a very short time but I just got word from one of my distributors that the Radeon 4850 has just come in. I expect the 4870 to be the best buy for the money when it releases, with a 4870 X2 […]

Possibly Odd Hours next Week

Posted on June 20, 2008 - Filed Under Business, Health, Life | Leave a Comment

Next Monday the wife goes to the hospital for a surgery, she’ll likely be there for 3 days so during the early part of next week you may see the store closed at odd hours while I run back and forth to visit. It shouldn’t be too bad though since Kate is done exams […]

More Plastic Instruments

Posted on June 18, 2008 - Filed Under Entertainment, gaming | Leave a Comment

By the time this Christmas rolls around this year I think a lot of people are going to find their living rooms seem to be shrinking. Adding to the plastic instrument collection currently stocked by Rock Band and Guitar Hero, GH4 World Tour will be adding drums and a microphone as well. And […]
