Its Been a Little Quiet

So if you noticed, its been over a month since I had a post on my blog.  Well the reason for that?  We had a new baby boy introduced into our family.  Since this is our first child, life has been a little hectic.  Between keeping the kid from crying, we have been dealing with Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Hopefully, I will be having more time to dedicate to this blog again.

Phoenix Comicon 2013 – May 23-26

It’s a little early but the Phoenix Comicon crew have begun announcing special guests for the ‘Con. Folks from Stargate, Babylon 5, and the Walking Dead will be making an appearance at the Phoenix Convention Center. This will be the second year that I will have the pleasure to go to. If you have never been to a Comicon before, you don’t know what you are missing. There will be a lot of people taking part in cosplay (aka wearing a costume of your favorite comic book hero/villain).

Why Do People Not Take Advantage of Mail-In Balloting

I do not understand why more people do not take advantage of the mail-in balloting process.  Yes voting for President, Senate, and House Representatives are pretty easy.  Everyone has seen the ads and pretty much have made up their mind who they want to vote for.  But there is one component of voting that I am sure will make you think twice…propositions.

I Went, I Saw, I Conquered the Tucson Comic-Con 2012

Tucson Comic-Con 2012 has come and passed.  However, it was a very interesting event.  Besides the cosplay and the silliness such as two young ladies dressed as Catwoman rolling on the ground fighting each other for a ball of yarn, what was amazing was the affordability of artwork at the comic-con.  You would think that you would be spending a lot of money for a drawing of Spiderman or Batman.

BOB Revolution SE Stroller…Is It Worth The Hype (Price)

If you do not know, we are expecting a child.  With a child comes buying baby stuff.  One of the things we are having a tough time with is the stroller.  There are so many options out there from color, style, and frame metal material.  I had made up my mind that I wanted a specific style of stroller…the jogger.  So many times I have seen parents struggle with pushing strollers through gravel, dirt, uneven pavement, and potholes.  Especially in Tucson, there are no smooth roads (just ask my recently departed Monroe Sensa-trac struts on my car).  So I definitely am looking at strollers with larger wheels that is nimble and portable.

Savage Arms and Weaver Optics Initial Review

Savage Arms Axis .223
Weaver Optics Kaspa 3-12x50mm Ballistic-X
UTG Tactical Op Bipod

Coming from a Savage Arms Mark II .22lr purchased at Wal-Mart, I already knew the build quality and durability of Savage Arms rifles.  That is why I decided on purchasing a higher-powered rifle made by Savage Arms.  There are many options in the .223 caliber variety.  The reason I chose the .223 was solely on the fact that it was cheaper to shoot compared to .243 .270 30-06 or .308.

Football Football Football

What have we learned in the past few weeks? Football is back! Whether or not its College or the NFL, the excitement of football has taken over the airwaves. The University of Arizona Wildcats football team has made a splash in the PAC-12 and the NFL is in full stride. The excitement of either going to the games or watching the games on Saturday and Sunday is overwhelming. The passion is back.

University of Arizona Baseball…National Champions!

Congratulations is in order for the University of Arizona Men’s Baseball team.  It is amazing to think that the Wildcats did not lose a single game in the College World Series.  In addition to that statistic, the Wildcats never trailed a single inning in the College World Series.

The Joys and Sadness of Finding Replacement Parts

One thing that has been such a pain in the you know what is finding replacement parts for tools.  I was generously given a Ryobi router that has a 1/2″ collet (the opening where you place your bits in) and was excited to go home and finish up some projects.  Low and behold all my bits are 1/4″.  Son of a….
