Black and White Cookie

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Last night I got home from work and we went to the Diner to get dinner.  As I ordered our food to go, I noticed a full tray of black and white cookies that JUST came out of the oven.  I bought one for me and one for the wife…  we waited until the kids went to bed and ate them…. it was freaking amazing…….  I love you black and white cookie

Toilets of the Future!

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

MSNBC has a nice article saying that Asia and Europe are light years ahead of us in toilet technology.  Heated seats, self cleaning, etc.  Stuff is pretty fascinating to me actually.  I don’t know if Americans will give up their Toilet paper anytime soon, but this article sure is funny to read.

Happy Hump Day

Chicken Pox, 2010, etc

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

I have had a very interesting couple of weeks.  I got the chicken pox.  Yes the disease you usually get when you are 3.  I got it (and I am older than 3).  It sucked so bad.  Anyway it’s a New Year!  It’s still really tough out there job wise.  I landed a job at a non-profit organization which is great!  Kids are excellent, wife is great.  Looking forward to a better year than 2009.

Cheers (well I can’t drink because the chicken pox hurt my liver…..grrrr)

No Work Friday, etc.

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I didn’t go to work Friday, Diana went to the Dentist (she was very brave).  Alayna and I and Eric went to Oma’s house while diana was getting worked on.  She was an expert bubble blower, check it out


We went out to eat at Ruby’s which was nice, went home , made cookies ,etc.

This morning diana is at school, and the kids and I are upstairs (hence the post).  They are drawing nice pictures.

Looking forward to Mondays darts.

October 15th Update

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Wow I suck.  Anyway I am still working for the bankrupt company but that is ending next week.  WHO NEEDS AN IT GUY.

Kids are great, Alayna is going to school 3 days a week, and little Eric loves his choo choos.

Wife is actually taking classes and working.  We are all very busy but in high spirits.

I am playing Warhammer online still on the Dark Crag Server, and looking forward to the Star Wars new MMOG.

Also looking forward to Dragon age from Bioware.  But i doubt I will have time for that.

Darts is going ok.  We had two weeks off, so I hope we do well on Monday night on 14th and 7th.


August 7th Update~!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

It’s been very busy.  We lost the dart championship by 1 game.  It hurt.  We could have won.  Next season I don’t know what is going on, christian moved to riverhead, so I doubt he will be back.  I took some time off from throwing and will think about next season in a few weeks.

My company is in Chapter 7.  I am working for the trustee of the bankruptcy for a few weeks.  Which is good since the job market is really tough.  I have been on a few interviews, but nothing yet.  I am trying to stay positive.

Kids and family are great.

Short and sweet update.

We WON! Semi-Finals here we come!

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009


We had a great night.  won 10-5.  Our opponents were called “tough darts” and they were a great bunch of guys.  So Wednesday night we are at Biddy’s again.


One thing on my mind tonight.

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Tonight I am not looking for a job, I am not not pissed about the economy, I am nothing but a guy shooting darts!

Come down to Biddy’s and Cheer us on! (91st and 2nd)

Update for July 6th 2009

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Here is a quick update

WORK – Is over.  We filed Chapter 7 on June 30th i think.  I am still working here for the Chapter 7 people to close down the business.  It totally sucks.  Even though I am happy to have a paying job, it’s one of the most depressing environments ever.

HOME – Going great!  kids are great, wife is great, etc.  We had a really fun 4th of July.  I was so happy, I almost forgot how craptastic my work like is.

DARTS – We have a 1st round bye for the playoffs.  So we don’t shoot tonight.  We start on the 13th at Biddy’s for the playoffs. COME ON DOWN and cheer us on.

That’s all for the quick update.  See ya

Last week of the regular season, Fathers day, etc.

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

This weekend went by way too fast.  Fathers day was great.  Got to sleep late, eat a lot, and enjoy my family.  Today I got some bad news at work, but let’s hope it’s just rumors.

Today is the final regular season game of darts.  We are home at Biddy’s.  Come on down and cheer us on.
