Pardon Our Dust – The Times They Are A Changing

Under Construction

You may see some “weird” things going on here on the site in the upcoming days / weeks.  You may see some missing images, a broken link, etc.  The short reason is because I’ve migrated the website to a new host. The longer, more geeky answer, goes something like this.  When I first built 406northlane.com it was built in flat HTML. I then upgraded it to Classic ASP and it’s since been moved into a … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs… Oh My – Live From Cleveland!

TLC 2014 Poster

The WWE held their annual TLC – Tables – Ladders – Chairs PPV last night in Cleveland and Marko and I were in attendance! Ever since the WWE Network was launched we’ve been getting together on a monthly basis to watch the PPVs but with this one being in our home town we decided to get tickets and be there live. Overall it was a very enjoyable show and it was super exciting to be … Continue reading

2014 / 2015 Snow Removal Scan – Got Snow?

2014 Got Snow Flyer Front

The snow has returned to Northeast Ohio early this year… and sadly so have the snow plow scams.  If you live in Solon or Twinsburg, Ohio (or the surrounding areas of Aurora, Glenwillow, Bedford, Hudson, Macedonia, etc.) you may very well have run across a scam.  There is a company that is calling itself Got Snow? or Got Snow Services.  They appear to offer snow removal services for residential addresses for a very reasonable price. … Continue reading

Election Date – Exercise Your Right To Vote

Election 2014

Ran across this via email forward the other day and wanted to add it here to the blog. Hope everyone got out today and exercised their right to vote! While walking down the street one day a corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. “Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is … Continue reading

Trick-Or-Treat Should Only Be On One Night – Halloween

Keep Calm And Trick Or Treat

Back today archiving a Facebook post I made last week on the morning of Halloween.  I saw quite a few people complaining about the fact that trick-or-treat hadn’t been moved due to impending bad weather or due to the fact that a high school football game was scheduled on the same night. I posted this mini rant and I was happy that just about everyone that responded agreed with my stance.   Below is the un-edited … Continue reading

Winking Lizard World Tour 2014 Winner!

World Tour 2014 Winner

I posted this one to Instagram and figured it’d be a good addition to Beer Shots as well. Can’t wait to attend the World Tour Finisher’s Party! I really do enjoy doing the World Tour, but I can’t say its something that’s great for the waistline or the wallet. Perhaps I’ll take another year off and tackle it again in 2016? Share Some 406!

Michelle Branch Is Everywhere… Including My iPod

Michelle Branch Everywhere Cover

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these music posts, but I was doing some work the other day and “Everywhere” by Michelle Branch shuffled through my iPod and I just had to write about it. This song was one of my absolute favs back when it was released. “Everywhere” comes from the 2001 debut album of Michelle Branch called The Spirit Room.  It rose to #12 on the Billboard charts and to … Continue reading

Heaven & Hell – When An Open Bar Goes Bad

Heaven & Hell

It’s been a while since I’ve added a new Beer Shot to the blog here. I was going through some old photos and saw this one and instantly thought it a candidate for something I’ll call “Heaven & Hell”. I’m a HUGE fan of going to weddings (and naturally the open bar that tends to accompany them).  These pics were taken at a wedding we went to.  Sadly, I can’t remember which wedding it was … Continue reading

Death In Box – McDonald’s Dinner Box

McDonalds Dinner Box

I was driving in this morning and a new billboard caught my attention.  It was a McDonald’s billboard talking about their new “Mickey D’s® Dinner Box” for only $9.99.  Seemed like a good price so I figured when I got to work I’d check it out.  Not because I would actually buy it (I’ve documented my issues with fast food here) but just cause I was curious as to what actually goes into this fabulous … Continue reading

13 Years Later I’ve Not Forgotten – Have You?

September 11th

I’m sitting down and continuing my “tradition” of putting some thoughts on virtual paper on this anniversary of September 11th. Another year has passed.  Another war has started. The vast majority of people have forgotten.  It’s sad, but it’s true. I’ve seen people go about their day today like it’s any other day.  I saw dreadfully few flags being flown this morning on my way to work.  I’ve received marketing emails “using” the events of … Continue reading
