Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife.

A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this:

Last weekend I saw something at Larry’s Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized Tazer. The effects of the Tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety…?? WAY TOO COOL!

My Time with the E7

Posted on Monday, September 12th, 2011 at 12:15 PM in geek, Reviews, tech by Michael

So, I was going to make this a nice long detailed review, but I can’t find time or the will to bring myself to do it. There are plenty of other excellent review out there of this device done by authors who are much more versed and well-written in mobile phone reviewing than I am. I apologize in advance if this isn’t what you’re looking for, but these are my few thoughts on the device. Continue Reading

Logitech Momo Review

Posted on Thursday, March 10th, 2011 at 11:01 PM in geek, Reviews, tech by Michael

I was recently alerted to an unbeatable deal on a Logitech Momo Racing Wheel and Pedals. A friend of mine found a set, in presumably working condition, at a local Goodwill store. After I did a bit of on the fly research and investigation, I figured it was an unbeatable deal and had him pick it up for me. Continue Reading

A Family in Need

Posted on Friday, December 3rd, 2010 at 12:26 PM in life by Michael

Normally I wouldn’t write a post like this, there’s a lot of people out there that need help these days, especially in this economy. This case hits too close to home to not pass the word along. Last year my family was down and out and had a very hard time making ends meet and was on the verge of not having any type of Christmas for my younger siblings. Word got out and many many people came forward to help out my family. My brother came home one night from the farm he worked at with a carload full of gifts, etc for my family and sisters so they could have a Christmas celebration. This year, we are trying to Pay It Forward. Not only did that movie strike home and make a good point, but my family was helped last year, this year it’s time to help another.

My best friend, and best man from my wedding, has fallen on hard times. He has been getting less than 20 hours/week at work to support his family of 4, wife and 2 kids, 13 and 9, but since last week has been taken off the schedule by a boss who is egotistical and backstabbing to say the least. (I never got along with her either, and I get along with most people.) Now it’s the holidays, he has a job, but has no hours; the boss won’t fire him so she doesn’t have to pay unemployment (it’s a known fact as she’s done this with many other people in the past), but he’s still employed so he can’t get the benefits he needs to support his family.

My Mom and I are working gathering anything and everything we can to help this family out. As I said before, he has two kids, Ciera, 13, and Collin, 9, who could really use a Christmas to look forward too. Ciera wears a medium to large shirt and size 11 pants and 11 women’s shoe. Collin wears size large boys shirt (10/12) and size 12 boys pants and size 8 shoes. They have an Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii that they could use games for as well.

Anything and everything would help. If you can give even a $5 gas card, or $5 cash towards gas, or food, that would mean more than you know to this family. They have hearts made of gold and would do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they could to help you out, down to giving you the shirt of their back. Even in the situation they are in now, they would do that, if it would help you.

Please help us Pay It Forward to a family who is in desperate need. If you can help in ANY way please let me know. You can contact me at any one of the methods on my contact page.

I have a Paypal address you can use for donations as well:

Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this. Please pass it along, I’d like to help this family as much as I possibly can.

Posted on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 at 7:28 PM in life by Michael

With all the people I’ve seen recently having kids or getting pregnant, I’ve decided to make a nice post as to why I have decided to not have kids. This post is not meant to offend, mock, make fun of, laugh at, or degrade anyone, it’s just my opinions and reasoning for not having kids myself. Continue Reading

Symbian, N8, N900 Thoughts and Questions

Posted on Monday, October 11th, 2010 at 12:51 AM in geek, life, N900, tech by Michael

Tonight I was thinking, as I so often do, about mobile phones, how my current usage dictates what I buy and use, and how a different device, in one way or the other, can benefit or change my current experience of a mobile device. Continue Reading

I didn’t write this, but it was shown to me by a teacher in high school. Figured I’d post it again for everyone. Good lesson here.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appreance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home…a school. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our Attitudes.
