Happy Birthday To The Rockstar

Dawn Puking

Well, it’s not Throwback Thursday, but it’s Dawn’s birthday so I figured what better day to post this gem. WAY back in the day in the first iteration of the site, I had a feature called the Picture of the Week. This particular photo originally ran on May 27th 2002. Happy birthday lady! Hope you have a simply outstanding day. Miss you! Update Photo credit goes to Pip. Per the man himself: “It was shot … Continue reading

Corey’s 30th – 11 Year Rewind

Well, it’s not Thursday, but I’m going to go ahead and run this week’s entry today. Our good buddy Corey is celebrating a birthday today and I just so happened to have an album saved from his 30th birthday that had been posted on the site. It seems silly to not post that today right? With that being said, happy birthday sir! Hope you have a tremendous day! Do you have any other 406 related photos? Send … Continue reading

39 And Doing Fine…

Family At Margaritaville

As has become my tradition (at least since my 35th birthday) I wanted to take a few minutes to sit down with my computer and put some thoughts together. If you’re interested at all, you can look back at the last couple of years worth of babbling: Thoughts At 35 Thoughts At 36 Thoughts At 37 38 And Counting (My Blessings) So, I’m another year older and I suppose another year wiser. I’m certainly another … Continue reading

38 And Counting (My Blessings)

Family - Tami

I’m sitting here at Panera on a Saturday morning as is my normal routine, working on stuff for clients, catching up on email, etc. What’s a little abnormal is that it’s my 38th birthday.  And while I’ve got a HUGE list of stuff to get done, I’ve got to take a minute to put some thoughts down here on the blog. I started this “tradition” when I turned 35 and I’ve continued it with Thoughts At … Continue reading

Thoughts At 37

Family On Marco Island

Not sure how it happened, but we’re through July and as I flip the calendar I realize it’s once again August 2nd, and I’ve turned another year older.  Sadly… the immortality pill hasn’t been discovered in this past year :).  I’m absolutely floored by the number of folks that have taken time out of their day to drop me a note on Facebook, Twitter, text, etc. to wish me a happy birthday – thanks you … Continue reading

How I Saved $110 On My iPads


The Wife and I had our birthdays last week. We had an absolutely outstanding week and weekend celebrating with family and friends. Her computer is on its last leg so I went ahead and got her an iPad. Based on her computer usage, I’m guessing this will essentially replace her laptop. I also splurged and picked up one for myself. I could tell you it was a “business expense” cause I wanted to do testing … Continue reading

Thoughts At 36

G's Pre-K Graduation

Another year has passed and as the calendar flips to August 2nd I’m reminded that no matter what I tell myself, I’m not immortal.  Today’s my 36th birthday.  I’m once again blown away at the number of people that have gone out of their way today on Facebook, Twitter and in person to wish me a happy birthday… thank you all!  Last year, I wrote this post reflecting on my 35th birthday and I’ve realized … Continue reading

Tasty Nipples

Fish Mouth

So we were down at the lake the other night.  We got together to celebrate Pop’s birthday and we decided to go with a nice evening at the lake so the boys could swim.  We ordered pizza to be delivered at the lake, the weather was beautiful and life was grand. Unfortunately before we got a chance to eat our pizza, Mother Nature screwed us just as she did the last time we were down … Continue reading
