Today in Save Your Photos Day. In this day and age such a reminder day is really important since most of us rely on digital photography only and we do not automatically get prints of all of our photographs. For this week’s infographic I found a great one that shares why you should always print out your photographs, at least your favorite ones. I’ve also include some deals for when … Continue Reading →

You Knew It Was Christmas Time When You Saw These Commercials

Growing up we watched a lot of television and when Christmas time approached we started seeing certain commercials every year. It is funny that I can still watch these old commercials and get in a holiday mood. I’ve gathered a few of them up from YouTube to share with you all.

Can You Name These Classic Video Games?

Can You Name These Classic Video Games?

I was born at the right time (1970) to experience the birth of video games. We had home video games that were just as addictive as the ones they have today, although not nearly as realistic. Hanging out in arcades was customary every weekend for all of us kids. Quarters were our currency of choice in those days. I remember when we got our first Atari at home, my parents … Continue Reading →

Wheel of Fortune Turns 40 Today Plus Wheel of Fortune Mobile Apps

Today is the 40th birthday of the television game show, Wheel of Fortune. It premiered on TV on January 6, 1975. It amazes me it has been that long already! My family has been watching for years and years. Remember the days of when a player won a round they did the shopping spree? I kind of miss that actually, maybe they should do a throwback week and have those … Continue Reading →
Can We Talk? Remembering Joan Rivers

Can We Talk? Remembering Joan Rivers

Sadly the news came today that Joan Rivers passed away. While I loved some of her comedy, I definitely did not love all of it, but I really respected her as a woman. She seemed like a tough broad, a woman who was not afraid to be a woman but also not afraid to go up against any man. Her work as a comedienne opened the doors for today’s funny … Continue Reading →

What is your favorite Robin Williams work?

We hear about famous people dying on a daily basis but sometimes they hit a little harder than others. When I heard about Robin Williams’ death yesterday I was shocked and saddened and honestly felt like I had lost a friend. No, I had never met Robin Williams but I have grown up watching him so much and he made me laugh and think. In the media we are hearing … Continue Reading →
Throwback Thursday: My First Computer TI-99

Throwback Thursday: My First Computer TI-99

Anyone else recognize this computer? Throwback Thursday took me back to my tween years and this. It is a Texas Instruments TI-99 and it is the first computer my family had. It did not really do too much compared to today, but I still thought it was cool. We didn’t even have a monitor, we just hooked it up to an older TV we had. I started thinking about this … Continue Reading →
Favorite Fireworks As a Kid [Throwback Thursday]

Favorite Fireworks As a Kid [Throwback Thursday]

When I was a kid we all shot off fireworks. I mean everyone! The kids and the adults actually. There were not nearly as many big displays by cities, festivals, and such back then. The firework stands went up in June and we could not hardly wait to get our hands on some. Back then they were wooden stands too, not tents, and they were cooler to me for some … Continue Reading →

Chasing Lightning Bugs [Throwback Thursday]

Do you remember when the nights were suddenly warm and dusk had arrived and all of the sudden little yellow flashes of light started appearing in the air? This was always so magical to me. It was like tiny stars had come down to visit us and share their spectacular light show in our little world. There must be something magical about those lightning bugs. I have absolutely no bad … Continue Reading →
