Enjoy Something For What It Is

Bowling Across America By Mike Walsh I love games. I love playing them. I love learning about them. I even love reading about them. I love games so much that I have an Instagram page dedicated to nothing but games, @yardgamenation. I am always on the lookout for books about games in hopes that I … Continue reading Enjoy Something For What It Is

How Much is Too Much?

There is a good chance you are waking up from a night of overindulging, and if not last night, the holiday season likely meant consumption on a grand scale. Frankly, it’s one of my favorite things about the time from Halloween through New Year’s. To my doctor’s dismay, it is a time to consume. Candy … Continue reading How Much is Too Much?

White Christmas

In our corner of the world, the Pacific Northwest, we get a wide variety of weather. This year, it has been exceptionally varied. I saw the thermometer at my house hit 108; we got something called an atmosphere river which means it rained a lot and caused awful flooding. My phone is now telling me … Continue reading White Christmas

The Year Long Hangover

2020 Hangover 2021 I started writing this post by sarcastically rehashing 2020 then deleted it deciding this was not the place for that. You know what just happened, you lived it and don’t need to relive it again right now. I’m sure Time Magazine, Fox News, NPR, and all the other media outlets will be … Continue reading The Year Long Hangover

Battery Life

Battery Last night I looked down at my phone and surprisingly it still had almost half its battery life. This is abnormal for me often having to charge my phone before the end of the day. This is a combination of two factors, one my phone is old, so the battery life is not what … Continue reading Battery Life

Tracking

VHS Tape Before I ever had cable, satellite, DVD’s, Netflix, Amazon, or whatever streaming option, I had the VHS. A product of the 80’s we would go to the Video Depot, a marvelous place filled with rows and rows of endless entertainment. There were even rows I wasn’t supposed to go down because those movies … Continue reading Tracking

It’s The Little Things

In life it is so often the little things that make a big difference and in this case that little thing was a tiny little dog bed. We recently ordered some new dog beds online, this is a strong argument for shopping local, and what showed up were two tiny little dog beds. They were … Continue reading It’s The Little Things
