That’s how I feel tonight.  I have been fighting off a cold and have been loading up on medicine.  Drug assisted sleep is so nice, you don’t remember falling asleep but when you wake up at 5am Saved By the Bell reruns are on.  Not a bad way to start the day.  I think I […]

Somebody Has a Case of the Mondays

March 24, 2008

Today was not too bad, me and our awesome marketing team put the annual report design to bed and sent it off to be printed.  The was a long process of getting layouts finalized, photo shoots, writing text for the annual report, and helping write a Chairman’s Letter to shareholders.  I admit I am not […]

Easter Madness and Mrs. Robinson

March 23, 2008

Sorry for being missing in action over this last week. With Terraza in town I did not keep up with my blog. Don’t worry, you did not miss much. I worked all day and Terraza chilled out by the pool. We did go to Coco Beach and pay homage to Major Nelson on our way […]

The House that Ruth Built (Tampa Version)

March 17, 2008

Saturday Terazza and I ventured out to Legends Field, the spring training home of the New York Yankees, to watch the Bronx Bombers take on the Tampa Rays. It was a great day to get out and watch baseball, and after paying way too much for spring training tickets, Terraza and I settled into our […]

Three Day Weekend

March 14, 2008

I know what you are thinking, the State of Florida gets St. Patrick’s Day off from work.  Hooray!!!  I wish that were the case, but thats not the reason for the extended weekend.  My mom (Terazza) is coming for a visit, and she is en route from Houston somewhere over the Gulf of Mexico as […]

20 In a Row and No Respect

March 13, 2008

My Houston Rockets tied an NBA record 20 straight wins last night by beating the Atlanta Hawks 83-75.  As great as they are doing they are not getting the recognition they deserve.  Everyone is too busy talking about the Lakers, Cavs, and Celtics.  Yes, these teams are good, but the Rockets are tearing up teams […]

Mayflower Hotel and No LUV for Grounded Flights

March 12, 2008

That’s where the former Governor of New York took his paid escort in DC that ended up getting him busted.  I just find it funny that have these guys not learned, pay with cash.  There is no paper trail!!!  Seriously, for a man that is so smart how can you be so stupid.  Being the […]

That’s the price for a gallon of gas here in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. I guess I am lucky that I only live 1.0 mile from the office, so I can usually go two weeks on a tank of gas. That is really awesome considering I drive a V-8 4Runner that drinks gas like my dad […]

Breakfast of Champions

March 9, 2008

First Friday in St. Petersburg was rained out, so it ended up being First Friday in downtown Bradenton.  The doctor and I met up with some of his LECOM buddies. at a local pub.  After partaking in a few drinks, the doctor organized a friendly dart game.  Now I haven’t played darts in a while […]

First Friday

March 7, 2008

It’s finally the weekend and I am ready to get out and do some more exploring in Florida.  Tonight is First Friday in St. Petersburg, a street party in the heart of downtown with live music and cheap booze.  I like that combination.  I am heading out there with the doctor and his fellow medical […]
