Airplane or Giant Germ-Mobile? 10 Ways to Stay Healthy While Flying

After being in the hotel business for longer than I will admit….all I can say is….this how I roll.  I whip off everyone’s germs wherever I go.  I guess this could be called a little ‘anal’ but I don’t want to touch the same tv remote that the guy used who  was just scratching his testicles or picking his nose.  I carry my own ink pen for the same reason.  It doesn’t hurt to wipe […]

Like Helping The Little Old Lady Across The Street

I’d like to pass along something I recently learned from a  now deceased mime. If you are a secret agent, or have multiple mistresses or misterstresses this will be of great importance to you. When emailing multiple people always use “BCC” (Blind Carbon Copy).  What this means is if you send an email to many people it appears you are sending it to one person and makes each individual feel special and dosn’t put there […]

‘In response to all this shit weather’

This shit weather has got me to thinking. Besides being the a royal pain in the kiester, it is creating some ‘snow days’. So if you get stuck in Key West rather than Atlanta or any other airport for that matter, with proof of course, and we have the space available, how does half off on your room sound? Yep, we will offer the night you are stuck at half the normal rate (not discounted), […]

Cut Back on Your Soap Bubba

Not you personally, your laundry soap.  Colleen has been bugging me for years to cut back on the laundry detergent and now this.  I’m not sure which irritates me the most, her being right or me being wrong.  According to this article I have been using way too much soap – figures.  But it is the American way, isn’t it?  More is better?  The reciept for making your own soap is interesting. Any thoughts on […]

Dennis, Dennis, Dennis

Post by on June 1, 2010

Dennis Hopper was one of my favorites. Here are some TV commercials by da man.    I think those for NFL are over the top. What do you think? One of my favorite movies with him is “Flashback” with Kiefer Sutherland. If you were one of the ‘flower children’ or ‘space cadets’ back in the ’70’s you might enjoy it. That is if you can remember the ’70’s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU8gvF6WCIk&NR=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dB4rsn8rJYM&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HieM90Rej1s&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cw80fkHb1mU&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cEgCFtmnnQ&feature=related The F […]

STOP IT! Triclosan is some evil shit.

Post by on May 4, 2010

We don’t need this stuff. Triclosan is classified as a pesticide and it’s finding it’s way into more and more products daily. By products, I mean tooth paste, deodorants, cleaning supplies, liquid soaps and the list goes on and on. Is there no decency in the way companies do business anymore? The dollar had been the bottom line for many decades but like everything else in this society there are no longer any values and […]

Stop buying bottled water…. it’s bad for the planet

A water filtration pitcher and a couple stainless steel water bottles (customize them to your liking) are where it’s at.  Consumer’s Report (May 2010 issue) has rated the Clear2O water filtration pitcher as the best buy, which means it’s the best for the money and does the best job.  Both the regular and the premium pitchers are rated excellent for lead and chloroform removal, excellent for flow rate and very good for not clogging – […]

Taking Care of My Dogs

I have been getting lots of comments and inquirers about my ‘moon boots’ lately.  They are actually MBT’s and I get them from footwearetc.com They are amazing for old legs (ankles and feet too) like mine.  If anyone has a pair, don’t throw them away when the soles wear out.  You can get them replaced for $65 (soles and the foam cushion) and they pay for the return shipping.  I have had my oldest pair for […]

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Is anyone else as ticked off with Toyota as I am?  I had a ’79 truck and liked it. I now have a 2006 Avalon and like it too.  Every time I call the dealership and inquire as to when they plan to do the recall on my car, I am told that I will get a letter in the mail.  Supposedly they have fixed the unsold cars on the lot and the rest of […]
