SharePre-game thoughts & questions: The Rapids entered the weekend having seen their 9 point lead shrink to 6 after K.C.

Who is Lenny Clark?

ShareYou may recall from an earlier blog, I use ooma for my phone service.  It’s now been a bit over six months so I figure it’s time to update you regarding my experience.

Part 2 – Finding the Perfect One Cup Coffee Maker

ShareHyperbole aside, I was looking for a good One Cup Coffee Maker (OCCM). You may recall from my last blog, I was introduced to the concept of OCCM’s by a friend who received a Keurig for Christmas (KFC).  Like most significant purchases, I put together a list of criteria, weighted each and devised a point scale on which to rate, score and ultimately select the … Continue reading

Part 1 – Android Takes a Back Seat to my Keurig

Pat Robertson Blames God for the Earthquake in Haiti

SharePat Robertson is at it again.  You may remember Pat from a few years back when he blamed God for hurricane Katrina.   It looks like God is back at it again.  According to Pat, God is ticked off at Haiti for something slaves did over 200 years ago.  I’m not sure why the delay (I suggest asking Pat to find out) but yesterday, according … Continue reading
