Have youever asked youself why you associate all Digital Music players to theterm iPod? Is it because Apple makes the best digital music player?No. Is it because all digital music players are iPods? No. Friendsit’s simply because they market their digital music player andbecause they do, they have a 70%+ share of the market.

Afterpurchasing and using my 5G iPod for a few weeks it became apparent tome that I needed a set of external speakers for use at work and in myshop. I was hooked on having my entire music collection at myfingertips but felt tethered to the ear buds. Not knowing exactlywhat was out there I set my requirements. Simple I thought I neededa set of speakers that also came with a FM radio receiver so I couldlisten to sports talk radio and Baseball games.
Theobvious choice would be the iBoom. I loo...

It's that time again.


Time for the company to do their yearly United Way Drive.  A silly PR stunt that many companies participate in each year.  From what I gather it works like this, they send each employee a little card that enables you to donate a percentage or a fixed amount to the United Way or through the United Way to your designated Cause.  But what it's really an effort on the companies part to be able to say that their company had 100% participation in a cha...

I hate "Posers"

Well I used to.

It seems that no matter what what group you choose to belong to thereare always those who want to fit in but don't.  They think that bywearing all the right cloths or saying all the right things that theycan weasel their way in.  We all know that it doesn't work.

When I was younger I despised and made jokes about the posers thatwould show up in the country bars and clubs that I hung out in. You could spot them from a mile away.  They a...

The way I think.  I think it may be messed up.  When I look atsomething I first see how it works or how it was put together.  I analyzeit to some degree before I see anything else.  For example a work ofgraphic art, when I look at one I try to decipher the way it was produced thenwhen I am satisfied that I have a good idea of the piece was made I then look atthe beauty of it.  A friend of mine builds custom motorcycles, once again Isee the design, fit and finish and how it was set up mechanicall...

I have sat here and typed then deleted several times,wanting to attack the Senator Kerry supporters that are writing all the nuttystuff in their blogs.  After several articles written in a fury and thenpondered and deleted I realized that I don't want to attack them.  Whatgood would it do to make fun of or ridicule them.  They, I guess need thetime heal after their loss and then maybe they will come around. 

There are things that we will never agree on, but shouldmake comp...

Cute isn't she?
Her name is Mercedes, I adopted her from a local no kill shelter. She had spent the first 3 months of her life in a kennel where she was mistreated and was probably being raised to be a fighting dog. I brought her home and finished nursing her back to health.

Soon after I got her the nearest city to me passed Breed specific legislation (BSL) against "Pit Bull" type dogs. They Claim that it is the dog that 's dangerous! My question is where is the owners responsibility...
