I started this website in July of 2010, which means I’ve been using a web host for almost four years. Aside from a few months when my friend Andrea from Nuts and Bolts Media was offering a hosting service, I’ve generally been dissatisfied (or “pissed off” if we’re talking bluntly) with my web host.

I’ve had quite a few because

You may have heard that Quicken Loans is offering $1 billion to anyone who enters their March Madness contest and picks a perfect bracket.

A few weeks ago I decided to try to grow a beard.

There were so many good reasons to grow a beard. It makes me look older. It’s manly. It keeps my face warm. I don’t have to pay for razors.

And there was one good reason to get rid of it. A beard just isn’t comfortable.

I’m Earning 2.2% Back on my Travel Rewards Credit Card

By |February 19th, 2014|

A few months ago I got a very disappointing letter in the mail telling me that the rewards for my credit card were changing. A card that used to earn me as much as 2.5% on all purchases would now earn only 1% on most purchases. As someone who loves credit card rewards, that wasn’t acceptable.

Who knew Ultimate Frisbee could be a dangerous sport?

I was playing Ultimate Frisbee about 10 days ago, which for those who haven’t heard of it is like a combination of soccer and football, only played with a Frisbee.

I was out on the field having fun and playing defense, when a guy standing about 10 feet away from me threw

If there is one thing my fiancee Tag won’t tolerate, it’s having our house smell like dogs. She hates when you walk into someone home and the first thing you notice is a dog smell. That’s why she does a great job of keeping our house AND our dogs clean.

Our two dogs, Sydney and Kona, love to play outside

I have a confession to make: I have probably searched for life insurance quotes at least 5 or 6 times in my life, but I’ve never pulled the trigger.
