The Black Keys

One of my new favorite bands right now is the Black Keys. I have just recently heard some of there music and just cant get enough for reasons that you to will find out for yourself. They provide a great beat and rythme with there music. The best way that I can describe their music would be a mix between todays Alternative music and southern Jazz music. Enjoy and I hope you like them as much as I have!

Getting Ready For Finals

The wonderful time of year has again joined us, Finals week will soon be upon us and the caffeine budget will be exceeded. This is the time when all college students, like myself, spend all day writing papers and finishing projects and all night studying for the next big final exam. They always try to associate school with your future professional life, but I have yet to be put into a situation within my career that allows for me to stress out for the next two weeks and to work unpaid late into the night for an assignment that I will not remember the answers for in a week. I do not see the point, but I suppose that there has to be a measuring point for grading purposes, but does it always have to come at the end of the semester. The end should be for celebration of getting out of school for a few weeks before having to do it all over again. This painting that I found online sums it up nicely.

Welcome back whinners

Just got word on this Saturday afternoon that the NBA has finally reached an agreement and games will start around Christmas. I would like to take a moment and express my feelings on this whole situation. Now I understand that in our current society, athletes are looked at as superheroes among men and some feel that they deserve to be paid what they are being paid because of the entertainment that they provide, but in such an economic time as the one we are in, where so many people are struggling to make it, to have these millionaires whine and complain about not receiving a bonus or more money going into the future. How does that make these players look to the rest of us, I can honestly say that I am finding it hard to support the NBA. I am not saying I wont watch the games, but maybe not as frequently.
So welcome back NBA may you get all the money you all wanted while the rest of us struggle through the hard times, but by all means make sure we know how hard you all have it.

Hard working dads

For all of you hard working dads out there having to work on thanksgiving as well, I am right there with you. We are but a small group but a strong one. I am grateful this holiday that I have a job. A job that supports and provides for my family. I am grateful for having a job that I love to do, not every one gets to say that but I do. I am grateful for the set of skills that I have developed over the years that allows me to work the non ordinary job of TV. I am grateful for my family that has supported me through the rough choices made to finally get us to such a wonderful place now. Truly on this thanksgiving I am grateful for alot because slot has been given to me, may the rest of the holidays be this good.

Monday night

Just last night I was able to prepare a great dad meal and watch some monday night football, all though my daughter was not interested in the game, she was excited about the potatoes. I made the following:
Regular Cheese Hamburger Helper
Roasted potatoes with onion, green pepper, and corn
and Bush's Baked beans
but for a little more nutrition I topped it off with a Salad

What a great way to spend Monday evening with the Fam
