Making connections

I want to point back to a post from a couple days ago. In it I spoke about reconnecting with my biological father after roughly 35 years. Like most of my personal posts, I wrote it for myself as a way to help process some of the feelings I have been having about the situation. But…

The Fremont Street (adult) Experience

This past weekend my nephew and his girlfriend drove in from LA for a visit. We took them to the Pinball Hall of Fame, M & M’s World, and they visited the Mirage to see the animals, took in a concert and even had a chance to play a round at KISS mini-golf. I would…

Would you like a medium for 50 cents more?

The other day Chris and I went to the movies. We bought our tickets and headed to the concession stand. The place was near empty, so we got to the front of the line before we really knew what we wanted. We told the girl we would be ordering something, but not sure exactly what,…

Who wants a coworking space in Las Vegas?

For the past 5 months I have been working from home using our guest bedroom as my office. For the most part, it has been great. But, there is a growing sense of needing to get out of the house and try to separate my work and home lives. Currently, they tend to blend together…

But it’s a dry heat

I’m not from Las Vegas originally. I grew up in Southern California and spent most of my team in the beach cities. If you’ve ever spent a summer on the coast you know just how humid it can get. 95 degree weather in Redondo Beach with high humidity can feel like it’s own form of…

The ultimate portable RickRoll

It’s getting trickier all the time to properly RickRoll somebody these days. All my friends now refuse to click on any tinyURL link I send them for fear that they are about to receive a dose of the awesomeness that is Rick Astley. By posting this, it’s already too late for me, but that doesn’t…

10 years on ebay

10 years ago today I signed up for my ebay.com account. I was trying to think if there are any accounts I’ve had longer than this one (email accounts or something like that), but I’m pretty sure that it is the oldest account of any type I have online. Over the past 10 years my…

Forward Thinking and Cement Mixers

Can you tell me what cement mixers have to do with being forward thinking? If you had been at BlogWorldExpo this past weekend, you’d already know the answer. Before I get to the real story, did you know that Linkin Park changed the spelling of their band name early on because they wanted to make…

Google At Ten

Yesterday was Google.com’s 10th birthday. I still remember the first time I ever went to google.com’s home page. The first thing I said was, “Where’s all the stuff?” By the time they came around, search engine sites like yahoo.com were already on their way to becoming portal sites with more content than you could shake…

Grand Opening, Casino Style

When it comes to Las Vegas, everything is done in extremes. Hell, even when they demolish a casino, they pull out all the stops. So this weekend when the Eastside Cannery was set to have their grand opening Thursday night, I was expecting an “over the top” spectacle. Since this was my first time attending…
