Over the past couple of years, a handful of you readers has expressed an interest in taking up writing (or renewing old writing projects) as a result of my content. Some of you have even taken on the joy of creating a blog for yourself, which is awesome. Because of this, I am always on the lookout for content that can push along that joy a little further.

One of the boys in my house is a huge basketball fan. Scratch that, he is a HUGE fan of Lebron James. However, he watches pretty much anything NBA related. So, over the past couple of years, I have gotten back into pro basketball as a connecting point between he and I. One of the things that we really enjoy is watching compilation videos of NBA players.
A couple of days ago, we sat down and watched this entire 40-minute compilation of this season’s Shaqtin’ A Fool. For those who are not familiar, Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley and a couple of other dudes show videos of truly boneheaded NBA plays from each week of the season.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Life is Strange. Pro athletes mess up too. Live it Well.
So, for the last two days, I have blogged about our adventure to Williamsburg. I’ve written about the Powhatan Resort where we stayed while we were there. I have covered our trip to the Jamestown Settlement and everything that we got to see at that location. Today, I’m going to take a look at Yorktown. Continue reading “Williamsburg, Part Three – Yorktown”
OK, so yesterday I went over our first day at the Powhatan resort. For as much fun as we had that first night, it paled in comparison to the day that we had before us. For that matter, I will take two full days of blogs just to unpack everything that we did on the second day of our trip. Continue reading “Williamsburg, Part Two – Jamestown Settlement”
Recently, at our place of employ, we have switched our work schedule. Typically we work a seven on four off schedule but have recently switched (voluntarily) to a schedule that only provides us with a couple of days off instead. What this means for us is that we have to be a little more deliberate about what we do with our downtime. Continue reading “Williamsburg, Part One – Powhatan Resort”
So, yesterday was the first day of the summer sports league in Brookneal, Virginia. My son is on one of the coach pitch baseball teams. This will be his first year in this division and is a little behind developmentally from the rest of the players. Continue reading “Don’t Be A Fool”
It seems like everyone and their brother is offering financial advice these days. Heck, I have posted up quite a few blog posts about it myself (including this one, I guess). Yet, how many of them are actually helpful to you? How many of these do you read and think, “Yeah, I’ve already read that a million other places? Show me something new.” Continue reading “Six Financial Blog Topics That Are Overdone”
I have always thought that any man’s appearance is instantly improved when they are in a suit. I don’t think this is debatable, really. You will hear men who will comment about how they never get in a suit and that it makes them look funny. I just don’t buy it. There is something very distinguished about a man in a suit that you simply do not get from a pair of cargo shorts and a t-shirt (which happens to be my outfit of choice).
Up until about two years ago, Youtube didn’t serve much of a purpose for me. I might watch videos on there every once in a while but I did not really use it as a regular source of entertainment. Then, I got my smart tv and realized that youtube was installed on the tv and would give me something free to watch as long as my internet connection was good.
