My Irritating Experience of Buying Airline Tickets Through Expedia

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Rant on… My mom is coming down Mother’s Day weekend for my daughter’s dance recital. My wife and I always pay for her plane ticket. I went to Expedia.com to make the purchase. I selected the dates and Expedia took me to a screen to choose the flights I wanted. I made the selections and […]

My Latest Best Buy Experience

Monday, April 11th, 2011

*Begin Rant Now…* Saturday afternoon, my 6-year old daughter was playing a PS3 game on our 3.5-year old Samsung flat screen (Model: LN-T5271F if you’re interested). All the sudden the TV went off and would not come back on. I unplugged it and it plugged it back in. Still no power. This concerned me. Later […]

My Frustrating Tassimo Direct Experience

Friday, February 11th, 2011

My wife has had a Tassimo machine for several years now. She loves it. A couple of years ago, Tassimo redesigned the machines, making them more modern-looking, sleeker, and maybe a tad smaller so that they don’t take up as much counter space. Anyway, her machine is getting pretty old and I have been thinking […]

Misleading Napoleon Hill Infomercial

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Imagine that…a misleading infomercial! Last night, immediately following The Willis Report, an infomercial came on promoting Napoleon Hill’s “The Law of Sucess.” The guy selling the book claimed that he was the only one selling this book. This is misleading. Why? Because I have a copy of “The Law of Success” and Amazon sells several […]

I’m Pretty Sure Forex People Are the Most Frequent Spammers

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Rant on… As a blogger, I have to weed through all kinds of spam. However, I have to say the most frequent spam I come across is that for forex trading. A close second (I haven’t done an actual poll) would have to be for debt reduction websites. Oh and we must not forget all […]

Obama and the ‘Fat Cat’ Bankers (Rant)

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

WARNING: This is a rant. If you’re an Obama supporter, you may not want to read this post. You have been warned. President Obama on 60 Minutes: “I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street,” Mr. Obama said in an interview on CBS’s “60 […]

I Don’t Like Change

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

As has been my usual habit at the end of each month this year, I visited StandardandPoors.com to look up the month-end values for the S&P indexes. Well, today I noticed that the page I usually visited looked different from the last time I visited. Then I noticed that some of the features I had […]
