Yeah… I Might Need To Buy This

Cavs WWE World Title Belt

I’m a bit of a pro wrestling fan. I’m a bit of a Cavaliers fan. If you know me at all, you know that both of those are complete understatements. So when I saw this tweet from WWE COO Triple H you can imagine my glee: An unprecedented comeback and a long overdue @NBA Championship… THAT is something to celebrate. Congrats @cavs! pic.twitter.com/dPmnnR6mP3 — Triple H (@TripleH) June 20, 2016 To steal a line from … Continue reading

My Twitter Conversation With The Hulkster

One of the reasons I love Twitter is because you can “interact” with people you’d never run across in your regular life. Case in point… I tweeted at Hulk Hogan the other day with an image of a bad ass tattoo that I ran across on Instagram from user @wrestlingtattoos. Lo and behold, the Hulkster responded… and made my day. Not sure how long these tweets will be out there, but here’s my original tweet … Continue reading

And So It Begins… Back To School

Back To School Meme

An interesting phenomenon has begun to occur over the last several years. Back to school photos. I’m sure moms (and dads) have been taking these photos for years, but with the Facebooks and Twitters of the world you just can’t get away from them these days. And with different parts of the country this “back to school” photo period lasts for WEEKS. Don’t worry… it’ll be over soon. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got … Continue reading

A Stroll Through My Instagram Timeline

But You're A Horse

I’m a big fan of Instagram. It’s not a coversation like Twitter, it’s not full of quizzes like Facebook. It’s just pure “photography”. Depending on who you follow, your timeline may be silly, raunchy, serious or anything in between. On my Instagram (@406nortlane), I tend to follow friends, funny accounts, folks I’ve met on Twitter, drinkers, etc. As I do nearly every morning, I flip through catching up on what I’ve missed since the night … Continue reading

Throwback Thursday – Lost Wedding Tweets

The Four Horsemen

Was going through some old drafts here on the blog and ran across this beauty. I’ve live tweeted a couple of weddings in the past (Open Bar #WeddingTweets and Live Tweeting With An Open Bar Is Outstanding!) and I did the same thing during this family wedding in the Chicago area. I’ve never seen a hotter girl look more trashy. #weddingtweets It’s always super cool when the wedding party acts like douche bags when they … Continue reading

With Friends Like This, Who Needs A Prius

Badass Prius

Took the Wife’s van into Toyota for some (overpriced) service this morning.  We thought it was going to be a warranty covered minor issue and it turns out it’s a $1,300 water pump.  Not happy… to say the least.  But I digress. When I was asked what I wanted as a rental car I said “whatever’s biggest” (TWSS).  I was presented with a shiny new Prius Hybrid. I made the mistake of sharing this photo … Continue reading

Lessons In Copyright Law – There’s Money To Be Made

Say No To Sharing

I wear many hats.  I’m a dad, a husband, a brother and a son.  When I’m not on Twitter spewing whatever comes to mind, I’ve got a day job at a Fortune 500 company that I love.  I do freelance website development and SEO (search engine optimization) and when I’m not doing all of that or blogging here, I help run a tobacco cessation website called KillTheCan.org which is dedicated to helping people quit chewing … Continue reading

Live Tweeting With An Open Bar Is Outstanding!

Whisky On The Rocks With Olives

I’ve been a really bad blogger lately.  And by “lately” I mean for the past few years. I have a tendency to start blog posts and then never get them done.  As of this writing I’ve got 21 drafts in various states of completion.  This one was started just over a year ago when Wife’s cousin Kim got married on 10/13/2012.  So… I spose this is some sort of weird anniversary present to Kim & … Continue reading

Sunset at Progressive Field

Progressive Field Sunset

If you’ve read any of my stuff here, you’ll know that I’m a pretty big baseball fan.  That said, Progressive Field (Jacob’s Field to me, but that’s another story altogether) holds a special place in my heart.  I ran across this photo on Twitter the other day where user @GirlFromThe216 had is a her Twitter background.  The sunset here showing through the clouds with the Terminal Tower and Progressive Field in the foreground make for … Continue reading

The Cucumber Gimlet At The Wyndham Cleveland

The Cucumber Gimlet At The Wyndham Cleveland

As tends to happen, I found myself in an incredibly weird, but at the same time, incredibly awesome situation last night.  I received a text from a buddy Casey yesterday afternoon asking if the Wife and I would like to join him and some others at a performance of War Horse at PlayhouseSquare.  We jumped at the chance (after skittering to line up a babysitter for the boys) and 4 hours later found ourselves happy-houring at the Wyndham downtown. Apparently the … Continue reading
