The CES Show Report

I was so excited to go to the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.  I had wanted to go to this for years, since I love my gadgets.  I was drooling over the thought of actually being the first to see and handle brand new items that weren’t even in the market yet.  I could ...

Moriarity – the Devil Awakens

This past week’s television show Elementary was by far the best of the series so far.  It aired on 1/10/13 and was named M.  I have liked this series from the beginning, but this episode had teeth.  Please don’t read any further if you are behind in watching the series (you can read my other ...

Credit Card Withdrawal

How does one stop spending money?  Don’t throw a line at me that you can’t spend what you don’t have.  It isn’t true, you can spend on credit cards.  I’ve gotten myself in trouble so many times with money.  Through the years I’ve managed in one way or another (don’t ask) to pay off my ...

Do I dare unTiVo Castle?

I’m sorry, but Castle is becoming crappy.  I think that word is appropriate – crappy.  The past two episodes are almost unwatchable.  I am talking about the one where the documentary crew was following Castle and company around the entire episode when the band member got killed.  I am still in the middle of the ...

Samsung Galaxy Note II

If you’ve kept up with my previous posts on the Iphone, you’ll know that I was disappointed with it.  I ended up buying the Samsung Galaxy Note II and returning the Iphone 5.  I am extremely happy with it.  I don’t know what previous salespeople at AT&T and others were talking about when they cautioned ...

Coach Handbags – a Word of Caution

I am a handbag connoisseur if that is what you can call it, but at least a collector.  I don’t know how many bags I’ve had over my lifetime, but right now in my closet I’m sure I have at least 50.  It is hard, because everywhere you go women are carrying them and there ...

Iphone 5 is Singing the Blues

If you remember from my previous post about the Iphone 5, I talked myself into buying it, even though I had to buy the full price.  I am now facing buyer’s regret.  Yes, it works and is fast.  There is nothing wrong with it.  But, other than it being slightly longer, I don’t see anything ...

It’s Elementary, My Lovely Watson

I love Sherlock Holmes.  I’ve seen most if not all of the old movies, plus the new movies with one of my favorite actors, Robert Downey, Jr.  Then PBS started broadcasting a TV series called Sherlock, which is a British rendition with Benedict Cumberbatch.  Great show, and he is a wonderful Sherlock.  They are redoing ...

The Mentalist vs. Castle

I used to only watch The Mentalist TV show when both this show and Castle started appearing on my television set.  I gave Castle the normal five minutes of my attention when any new show that even slightly appeals to me starts.  I didn’t like Castle.  I thought it was annoying.  I loved The Mentalist.  ...

Grey’s Anatomy, Second Fall 2012 Episode

This episode cleared up a lot of the questions from the first one of the season.  I think it was good, actually better than the first one.  It was somewhat confusing as the action started in one time frame and popped into another, sometimes before, sometimes after.  You had to really concentrate as you were ...

Grey’s Anatomy Opinion on First Show

I saw THE SHOW.  Why the caps?  We wait for all of these shows that we like for what seems like an eternity to return from the dead and wake up, like a ghost getting her life back.  They aren’t showing the plane scenes again until next week.  Did they think they had to ease ...

Falling Asleep on the Toilet

Did you ever get so tired that you fell asleep on the toilet?  Don’t tell anyone I told you this, since it is really embarrassing, but I did do it.  You would think that I would fall down and hit my head, but I stayed upright.  I have a cabinet in the back where your ...

Oreo’s 100th Birthday

This year is the 100th Birthday of the Oreo.  I was not aware of this fact until I read about it in the New York Times.  They were doing an article about it because of the unique advertising campaign, which has a different ad for the Oreo every day for 100 days.  The ads seemed ...

Long Island Medium – again

Alright, so kill me.  I’m still watching her.  I don’t know what the pull of this show is, I’ve been trying to figure it out.  Last night I was watching the episode where her daughter gets into a car accident, actually two in one week.  Theresa (the medium and star of the show) freaks out ...

My Cat From Hell

If you have cats you must watch this show, it is great.  It is more or less a reality show, and the main character (besides the cats) is Jackson Galaxy.  I say character because that is what he is.  Crazy earrings, long beard and wild tattoos adorn his body.  Supposedly he plays in a band ...

How to stop feeling bitchy

It could happen in the middle of the day or anytime. Some people are probably like this all the time, a true bitch. I can physically feel it taking over my body. It twists your mouth down at the corners. Your shoulders slump. You don’t really want to get up off that chair, because if ...

Iphone Depression

I had this sudden sadness settle over me this past Friday.  It was the Iphone itch.  I’m not talking about having to scratch yourself with your Iphone.  I mean wanting the new one every time they come out.  For months leading up to the actual release date of this new shining product, everywhere you look ...

The Trim Finger

The Catfish are Frying in Texas

As I said in previous post, I was in Dallas last week.  The others in our group (from near Dallas) suggested Catfish Cove for dinner.  Not being a well-rounded person when it comes to food, I checked out the website for this restaurant, thinking it was a mainly fish place.  I started reading the menu ...

What is West Nile Virus?

Should I be sleeping in a netting surrounding my bed at night?  This and other questions that I never thought I’d be asking have come up in the past few days when I had to fly to Dallas on business.  I thought this West Nile flood of mosquitos in Texas was more hype to get ...
