Earthquake? Which Earthquake?

Hey there.  There have been a lot of talk about the "big one" hitting southern California today.  That's right, TODAY.  And to be quite honest with you, I think it's all a bunch of crap.  First off, you cannot predict earthquakes.  Scientist have had a go at it for decades and they still cannot predict when an earthquake is going to strike.  Now, I'm not saying that they are nowhere in regards to earthquake prediction.  What I am saying is that by the time they know one is going to strike, the rest of us know too.  lol  So why all the earthquake talk?  Because of Twitter messages like this...

Yeah, that says 6.5 to 7.0 earthquake TODAY.  This has caused all kinds of panic in the Los Angeles area.  Listen people, we cannot predict earthquakes yet.  The fact that this person is saying that there's in earthquake happening in southern California is not new.  Believe it or not, we have more than a few earthquakes here a day.  It's just that they are of low magnitude that we don't feel them.  But how do we know they happened?  Cause those above mentioned scientist have trying to find a way to predict earthquakes that they've found a way to measure even the smallest of movement in the Earth's crust!  Now relax people.  No need to panic.  If we do have an earthquake, it should somewhat be expected since that's the way of life here in southern California.  But more likely than not, we're going to get through this day, like any other, with some light shakin' and bakin' under the California sun.  Later!

Get Moving with the Playstation Move

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PlayStation MOVE. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey there friends. Have you guys heard of the new Playstation Move yet?  It is an innovative way to play PS3 video games.  No more will you be sitting on your butt and mash buttons.  With the Playstation Move, you have a full range of motion, using the motion sensor controller, to control your characters in ways that have not been done before. 

I, myself, can be a hardcore gamer.  My wife, not so much.  So when I sit and start playing games for a while, she can feel a little out of place.  With a Playstation Move, I would be able to get her and the kids into the action.  With motion being the key component to many of the Playstation Move games, anyone will be able to pick up a motion sensor control and get into the action.  And as an added bonus, it could count as some light exercise since you will be up and moving around.  Also, the wife and kids won't be put off the complexity of the some of the games that I enjoy playing, enabling us to spend more family time together in the form of a family game night. It would definitely be a great way to have a few laughs, have some fun, and bond with the family.

We've already starting looking into the games and prices.  You can score a Playstation Move bundle for only $99 for those that already own a PS3.  For those that don't, there is a bundle where you can add the Playstation Move.  And the cool part is that it comes with the game, Sports Champions.  But that's not the one we want to try out.  We have our eye on Start the Party.  A family friendly game that looks like a load of fun and something that the family can definitely get behind.  Check out this one screen shot!
Adding the Playstation Move sounds like a good move to me.  Especially since it's something that the whole family can enjoy.  Video games have evolved.  It's no longer just pushing buttons and using a plastic controller.  Your body can now be the controller and that opens up a wide range of excitement and fun.  Check it out friends.  You won't look back after you do.  Later!

The Best Dance Ever

Hey there.  Like kids across America, ours started school about 2 or 3 weeks ago.  Because the girls go to school close to where I work, I drop the girls off before heading to work.  It's been interesting, to say the least.  I chat it up with the girls during the car ride and we listen to the Kevin & Bean show together.  We'll laugh over some stuff and it's pretty much a good bonding experience for us.  Especially when little episodes like this happen.

About a week or so ago, we are on our morning commute to school.  Kevin & Bean had an interview with some woman that I had no interest hearing so I started to change the radio station.  I stumbled across some song that my young one instantly recognized.  "Leave it there, Dad!"  I hear that a lot when she's in the car.  lmao  She recognizes all the "hit" songs and she's only 5!  Anyways, it was some song with lyrics that go something like, "dance, dance, dance like it's the last night of your life."
Their pre-robot ritual

After hearing the girls sing the phrase for what seemed like the 20th time, I decided to have some fun with the girls.  I turned to look at them (during a red light, of course), start doing the robot and say, "They must be doing the robot if they're dancing like it's the last dance of their life.  I mean, it's only the best dance move EVER!"  At this point the girls laugh and the young one starts doing the robot from her seat.  lol  I love it when she does the robot.  When the older one stops laughing she looks at me with a serious look and say, "That is true."  lmao!  Oh man...  Classic!  Later!

Schedule Those Car Check Ups

Hey there.  You know, a friend of mine was recently in Azirona and he found himself needing his 2001 Ford Escort checked out.  Turns out that his water pump needed to be replaced.  Now, I usually do my own car maintenance.  Well, what I consider the small stuff at least.  This guy just doesn't bother with it.  As soon as he "feels" it's time for a check up, he'll get it done sooner or later...  and it's usually later. Luckily for him, he found a Phoenix auto repair shop using his phone.

I like to think that I'm pretty handy when it comes to that.  I've been able to check and change all the common maintenance issues, such as motor oil, transmission fluid, radiator coolant, and the serpentine belts.  Recently, I've been showing my boy how to check it out himself so that he can have the know how to get it done himself.  But the two things that I have not been able to take care of have been the timing belt and the water pump. Unlike my friend, I get those checked every year to avoid such things as being stranded in the desert. 

So take this as a public service announcement, make sure to get the car checked up on some sort of schedule.  Especially if you're living in high temperature places.  Cars overheat, tires wear down, water pumps burst, and belts snap.  We rely on our cars more than we should!  Avoid spending a fortune on emergency repairs when you can get those checked out and repair or replace those important parts BEFORE some serious damage takes place.  Later!

My Day as an Extra

Hey there.  I missed all the football games this Sunday.  All of them!  I wasn't anywhere near a TV because my son and I were off being extras in a Comedy Central show.  I received an Email requesting inviting me to take part as an extra and I pretty much said why not and took my son with me.  It was video game based so I figured that we would enjoy it.  There was a lot of sitting around, but we did manage to get some TV time.  My son was positioned right behind the speakers, as an audience member, so he should be seen on air and I was cast in a small role as a security guard!  Whoo hoo!  We were told that we cannot post pics or give away any info other than that so hopefully I'll be able to post more details once they've become public.  What I can say is that some of people responsible have their hands in other video game related shows such as The Guild.  I can't wait to see the episode on air!  It will be fun to see how much my son and I actually show up on the screen.  I'd also like to know how the episode plays out since we only heard  few lines here and there.  I'm sure it's going to be great.  Until then, later!

NFL Heavy Metal Rankings: Week 3 2010

Hey there friends.  Week 2 continued on the same trend as week 1.  Some very good games (Saints - 49ners), more disappointing surprises (Vikings 0-2) and more injuries (Saints RB Bush broken leg).  Nevertheless, it was one great week of football!  Now, on to the rankings.

Prev. #2  The defending champs had a hard fought battle with the 49ners on a windy Monday night.  Though San Francisco looked formidable at times, the Saints gutted the stormed and marched down the field for a game winning field goal.  The win didn't come without a heavy blow.  Saints RB Reggie Bush is out for 6-8 weeks with a broken leg.  The next couple of weeks will be critical to the Saints Super Bowl run.  NEXT: FALCONS (1-1)

Prev. #1  Giving the Bills a beatdown doesn't surprise me.  Good teams are expected to beat inferior opponents.  We'll get a better understanding of how good this team is when they go up against divisional foe, Chicago.  We'll also see if the loss of RB Ryan Grant can be overcome by the running of RB Brandon Jackson.  NEXT:  @BEARS (2-0)

Prev. #5  Surprise, surprise!  The Texans are looking awesome under the play of QB Matt Schaub.  Being just 3 yards shy of 500 yards, QB Schaub came out on top in an overtime thriller with the QB Donovan McNabb lead Redskins.  Another win against a quality opponent will dictate that the Texans have indeed arrived.  NEXT: COWBOYS (0-2)

Prev. #-  Another big surprise comes in the form of the Steelers being 2-0.  The Steelers have relied heavily on their defense to keep them in games and ultimately win them.  No one envisioned this team winning more than a game without their star QB Ben Roethlisberger but a 3-0 start is very possible with a favorable matchup against Tampa Bay.    NEXT: @Buccaneers (2-0)

Prev. #6  Indy came out firing after their week 1 loss.  Indy QB Peyton Manning looked like his old self again while giving his younger brother a beat down he won't soon forget.  With a strong balance between passing, running, and defensive plays, the Colts have to be favored to be on top of the AFC South when it is all said and done.  Look for them to light up the Broncos and start a winning streak.  NEXT:  @DENVER (1-1)

Prev. #-  The Jets made a bold statement against the favored Pats.  Jets QB Mark Sanchez shined and stayed poised while under pressure.  The Jets defense completely shut down the Patriots offense, stifling Pats QB Tom Brady on many occasions.  Pats WR Randy Moss had no receptions in the second half, but that wasn't because he was on Revis Island.  CB Darrell Revis was injured in the game and is expected to miss at least a week.  NEXT @DOLPHINS (2-0)

Prev. #7  QB Tom Brady was channeling his inner Jim Mora during his press conference after the game.  After tearing his team a new one and claiming that they "sucked" it was clear that Tom was not a happy camper.  The offense could not move the ball in the second half and because of it, were held scoreless after scoring a quick 14 pts in the first half.  Look for them to bounce back with a vengeance against the lowly Bills.  NEXT: BILLS (0-2)

Prev. #3  The Ravens will be a formidable foe once QB Joe Flacco syncs with his offense.  The Raven defense has kept them in games and until the offense can find it's groove, expect for LB Ray Lewis to will his team to victories.  Look for Flacco to get his act together and light up the Browns for a couple of TDs in the Raven home opener.  NEXT: BROWNS (0-2)

Prev. #-  The Dolphins are beginning to look like a playoff team.  The defensive pass rush has been one to keep an eye on and if QB Chad Henne can develop some chemistry to WR Brandon Marshall, this offense can win games for the Dolphins down the stretch.  This week's game against the Jets will determine how good this Dolphin team can be.  NEXT: JETS (1-1)

Prev. #(28) This team is nowhere near the top 9... but they would be ranked 27th in my system. 

The Raiders took care of business in beating the Rams last week.  Though, they did it without the newly acquired QB Jason Campbell.  Campbell was taken out of the game at halftime and QB Bruce Gadkowski came in and gave the home crowd a show.  He did what Jason Campbell couldn't...  get first downs.  With the offensive line having issues, Bruce released the ball much quicker than Jason having successful completions to wide receivers.  The problem that Oakland faces now is who to start at QB.  The "next" Jim Plunkett, Jason Campbell or Bruce Gradkowski?  Accordingly to the Raiders, that determination will made later today.  Running the ball with RB Darren McFadden has also bolstered the rushing game.  The Oakland running game is 3rd in the league with 154 yards a game.  Many of those coming behind the strong legs of McFadden.  And with strong hands, he's also an easy target for the QB to throw some quick screens to.  NEXT: @CARDINALS (1-1)

Pimp Your Ride with Dual Electronics Latest Mobile Receiver

This post brought to you by Dual Electronics. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey there friends. How many of you have fumbled through CDs to find the right tunes to play while out for a drive? I know I have. I'll be in the mood to Rock out to some Metallica and don't have the CDs in the car or I'll be in the mood for more epic, like Queen, but again, not have the CDs in the car. It's a bummer that my car didn't come with a mobile receiver, like many new cars of today do. You know... those built in MP3 players and what not. That's why I was thinking of upgrading my system with the Dual Electronics XDMA6630 mobile receiver.

I have been browsing for one for some time now and I love that this one has Bluetooth connectivity and functionality, front panel USB ports for an iPod, iPhone, or other mobile device, 2 RCA preamp outputs, and a 3.5 mm aux input.  This thing is perfect.  Instead of fumbling through 10 CDs or so, plug in your iPod and choose EXACTLY what you want to hear.  That's 1000's of songs at the touch of the button without all the CDs.  It plays music in WMA and MP3 formats and if you still will want to carry CDs after buying this, it also plays CDs.  lol

I want one of these.  It's time that I up the cool factor of the car with a more updated car audio system.  Believe it or not... the car audio system that we have now still has the tape slot!  TAPES!  Time for an upgrade.  Check out Dual Electronics audio systems here and look to give your sound system a boost!  Later!

Backing up, Backing up, Backing up, Backin up... Cause my Daddy Taught Me Good

Hey there.  I have been cracking up to this video since I first heard about it on the Kevin & Bean show on KROQ.  I looked it up and the whole family has this song on the brain.  It's even been sung at the most inappropriate of times.  lmao  It's a catchy tune and once you'll hear it, you'll curse me for inviting such as catchy song into your brain.  lmao  You're welcome.

NFL Heavy Metal Rankings: Week 2 2010

Hey there. I don't do a pre-week 1 rankings. I feel that you need to see the teams in action before you can place the teams in a ranking system. Sure, some were powerhouses last year, but with all the off season moves, you never know who might surprise you (AHEM... Kansas City... AHEM). So here is my top power rankings and a tidbit on my NFL team, the Oakland Raiders.

The Packers came up with a win against the Kolbless Eagles.  But QB Michael Vick wasn't going down without a fight.  Despite a valiant effort, the Eagles fell short the Packers came out on top.  QB Aaron Rodgers looked ordinary (2 TDs, 2 INTs) and we'll have to see how much of an impact the loss of RB Ryan Grant will affect the passing game.  NEXT: BILLS

The shootout with the Vikings never materialized as the offense for both teams seemed to struggle at times.  However, with the defense coming to play, and making the Viking QB Brett Favre look every bit of 40, the Saints pulled out the victory.  Look for them to start checking out kickers.  K Garrett Hartly missed two very makable kicks. NEXT: 49NERS

The Ravens definitely shut up the Jets with their defense.  The Ravens pressured Jets QB Mark Sanchez all game long and the defensive line dominated the front lines all game long.  QB Flacco has many weapons to work with.  It's only a matter of time before he's in sync with his receivers putting the Ravens back in Super Bowl contention. NEXT: @BENGALS

Is trouble brewing in Big D?  Coach Wade Philips better right this ship fast.  The offense only produced 7 points in a game where the Cowboys hurt themselves more than the Redskins beat them.  The Cowboys still have the talent, but if they cannot produce this year, the Cowboys will look for a new head coach.  NEXT: BEARS

Who is this Arian Foster kid?  He gashed the Colts defense for a staggering 231 yards and 3 TDs.  QB Matt Schaub didn't have to do much since the running game was astounding.  A big win over the Colts can pay huge dividends for young team and this may be the year where they may legitimately challenge the Colts for the AFC South crown. NEXT: @REDSKINS

QB Peyton Manning was Peyton Manning throwing for over 400 yards and 3 TDs, but the running game was nowhere to be found.  It takes a team to win in the NFL and he can't do it all by himself.  And now with the loss of S Bob Sanders, look for the Indy run defense to continue to struggle.  NEXT: GIANTS

Disarray in New England?  It didn't look like it.  With distractions abound (QB Brady car accident, WR Moss contract dispute) none of it was apparent on the field.  The cool and collected QB Tom Brady threw for 3 TDs, two to WR Wes Welker, as they brought the Bengals back to reality.  NEXT: @JETS

WR Sidney Rice was not playing, WR Percy Harvin, was not at 100% and QB Brett Favre not being at training definitely took a toll on the Viking offense.  QB Brett Favre was out of sync with all his receivers, with TE Visanthe Shiancoe being the exception.  Another week in practice will definitely help so look for them to bounce back this week.  NEXT: DOLPHINS

Charger coach Norv Turner has an awful record in September and that trend continued against the Chiefs.  The Chargers, having superior talent, had no business losing this game but give credit to the Chiefs defense. They stopped QB Philip Rivers 4 times at their goal line in the final minute of the game to prevent the tying score. NEXT: JAGUARS

If I were to do a full ranking list... the Raiders would be placed 28th out of 32 teams.  The team has the potential to leap from the cellar the AFC West but showed no improvement against the Titans.  They were gashed for over 200 yards rushing and looked horrid on offense.  Whether it be jitters or just bad play, the offense was confused and out of sync the whole game.  Raider QB Jason Campbell was on his ass most of the game and held the ball too long on most occasions.  The lone bright spot?  RB Darren McFadden was 5 yards shy of rushing for 100 yards and had another 55 yards receiving.  Look for the Raiders to finally get out of this funk against the Rams and have their offense be on the same page.  Their defense should be more than effective against the young Rams, who have 9 starting rookies on their team, including their shiny new QB Sam Bradford.  NEXT: RAMS

A Vacation in Kissimmee Florida

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey there friends. The more I read about Kissimmee, Florida, the more I am compelled to take a trip there. When you think about it, who doesn't want to take a trip to an American paradise? It has awesome weather, sandy beaches, and with those of us with kids (or at least a kid at heart), Disneyworld is just a short drive away.  This is definitely an ideal travel destination for those of us looking for a get away from the daily grind of our work lives.

For those of us looking for a little bit of nature, there is a heritage trail, hiking, boating,  kayaking, fishing, and they just recently added a zip line to their great outdoors so you can zoom through the sky and take in the beautiful scenery from above!  For the kid in us, we have the theme parks that usually garner all the attention of central Florida, and with good reason.  With Disneywold being minutes away, who wouldn't want to spend an afternoon with the beloved Disney charaters?  And for those of us just wanting a relaxing time.  Bird watching, beaches, , lakes, parks and golf courses are in abundance and should provide you with the "me time" that we all desperately need from time to time.

I wouldn't mind taking a trip there to check out the outdoors.  Maybe book a room at the Super 8 Kissimmee Suites.  I'll have to admit that price would determine where we stay since we're pretty much just use the place to sleep.  lol  So much to do that we wouldn't be spending much time in the room.  I would definitely want to do the zip line and maybe a little kayaking. I think there's enough shopping here in Los Angeles so I wouldn't want to spend my vacation time in stores, but there is a nightlife there that my wife and I would like to check out.  The Saturday Nite Cruise®, featuring over 300 classic cars sounds like an awesome way to spend an evening!

I don't see why anyone would NOT want to spend a weekend (or a week) in Kissimmee, Florida.  I'm from the west coast of the US and I wouldn't mind checking out the south east coast for a change!  With all that it has to offer, you have to consider Kissimmee, Florida as a top choice vacation spot.  Later!

Motivational Monday - Age

Hey there.  I love the NFL!  I'm glad that it's back.  Look for my Heavy Metal Rankings to hit tomorrow, once the Monday night games have come to pass.  I used to do all 32 teams, but I'll be honest... It's tough to rank them all so I'll just do the top 9 (cause that's how I roll) and provide some personal thoughts on my Oakland Raiders (yeah, I'm serious).  lol  But boy, and I happy the NFL season started and some real good football has taken place!  And to start it all off was the Vikings vs the Saints on Thursday night.  I was excited to see a old fashion shoot out... What we got was an aging Brett Favre with no receivers and a Saints offense that were not quite in sync yet.  Except for a few plays here and there, Favre looked every bit of 40.  Still... I hope he does well this year, but it will be tough with out his top receivers!  So here's to you, old man Brett.  Good luck!

Damn This Sickness

Hey there.  I am still sick...  It's odd for me to get sick.  I'm usually the one that the sickness passes by but this time around, it's hitting me... and it's hitting me hard.  I still have a headache, my body aches, my legs feel a little weak, and I've been sneezing and coughing since Monday.  It is now Thursday and this sickness should have long been gone.  The baby and the kids have also been sick this week.  Good thing that our oldest just over his sickness, he started middle school yesterday.  The girls start school on Monday so I'm hoping that they'll get over it by then.  Me?  I'm at work.. sick.  My boss walked in my office this morning and said that he was worried I wouldn't come in today.  I pretty much told him that I can't miss because work piles up and I'll get crap from people.  He basically said, "welcome to real world" and walked into his office.  So much for asking how I'm feeling.  lol

We also started constructing our son's centerpieces for his birthday/baptism party.  It's going to be Super Mario Bros. themed and we're building piranha  plants as the center pieces.  You know, the ones that pop out of pipes and sometimes spit fire at you?  Yeah, those.  lol  But for those are still a little confused or have been living under a rock for the past 25 years or so, I've added a picture of them surrounding Princess Peach.  Enjoy.

We're also making the candy bags and I'm adding a question mark or a coin symbol on them to make them a little unique.  I think I have it on Facebook... let me go get it and post it here.  They are kinda crude and are the first ones but nevertheless, they look pretty cool.  I have about 50 bags to make.  Well... 48 now.  lol  Check these out.  Later!

A Restless 3 Day Weekend

Hey there.  Happy Labor Day to all!  Our labor day weekend has been a restless one.  Our baby stated showing signs on sickness Friday evening and he had a stuffy nose through out the night.  That didn't let him sleep much so we were up most of the night trying to make him comfortable.  Come Saturday, he's in full blown sickness...  coughing, slight fever, and runny nose.  Needless to say, sleep wasn't meant to be for Saturday night.  Sunday... he seemed a little better, but now our daughter and son start with a sore throat and some coughing here and there.  Oh man...  The baby has gotten some of the older kids sick.  Come Sunday night, our son woke up close to midnight and refused to go to sleep.  Before I knew it, it was close to 4 am and we were still up trying to comfort him.

We had plans to go to the LA County Fair but most of the kids are sick, the baby is being fussy, and now I'm beginning to feel a sore throat.  Oh man... so much for an activity filled weekend.  My bro did come over on Saturday and I managed to win a game against him in Madden 11.  Believe it or not, I've never really played much of the Madden series so I'm awful at it... but we made it somewhat exciting and interesting!  lol 

Ugh...  Now I'm sneezing... greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat...  Hope we start feeling better soon.  Until then, later.

To Kick Bieber or Not to Kick Bieber

Will Ferrell has awesome will power.

The Near Death Experience

A middle-aged woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table, she had a near-death experience. Seeing God, she asked if this was it. God said: "No, you have another 43 years, 2 months and 8 days to live."

Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, liposuction, breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color. Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it.

She got out of the hospital after the last operation, and while crossing the street was killed by an ambulance speeding to the hospital. Arriving in front of God, she demanded: "I thought you said I had another 43 years?"

“Sorry,” God replied: "I didn't recognize you."

What is in McDonald's Chicken Nuggets???

Hey there.  I'm not sure if you guys are aware, but there's a lot of people that eat fast food.  lol  A popular spot is the world famous McDonalds.  The golden arches have been selling burgers, fries, and nuggets to millions of people a year and quite frankly, it can become addicting.  Addiciton...  That brings me to my point.  What the hell does McDonalds put in their food to cause people to go crazy?  As of late, there has been this video roaming the web about a woman that couldn't have chicken nuggets and she went into a rage, punching a woman, and smashing the drive thru window!  Now, I would be inclined to say, "you know what, the woman must have had a tough day and just lost her better judgment." but this is not an isolated case.  I've read people calling 911 because the chicken nuggets ran out, people fighting over the fried food, and now insane incidents in the drive thru.  I don't know what's going on but I'd say there's some special ingredients in there to make customers go back for their fix.  I'm just saying...  Someone needs to check them out.  If you haven't seen the video, I've posted it here.  What do you think?  Crazy woman?  Or crazy McDonalds?  Later!
