Fall-ing Into a GM

Posted on October 27, 2017

What’s in my wallet these days is significantly impacted by this time of the year, and what’s coming up sooner than later (the holidays). The things I know I’m going to need later (like a new vehicle) have to wait. But what if while I’m waiting and spending money on everyday purchases, I can be magically saving money toward a new vehicle?

Twitter Does NOT Retire Usernames

Posted on October 15, 2013

Grabbing yourself the ultimate Twitter username is the most infuriating process ever, which makes sense with over 554M registered Twitter accounts. But what if you find a username that you want, and it's clearly not being used? Well, you contact Twitter through their Help Center and ask them about it, only to receive a canned response. It's also posted here. The response looks like this...

Enable AirPlay Printing With Your Existing Printers

Posted on April 3, 2012

Enable AirPlay printing from all your iOS devices with all of your current printers! After researching AirPlay-compatible printers (or lack thereof), I stumbled upon a different solution that works with your existing printers. The software is called FingerPrint that runs on your Windows or Mac desktop to act as an AirPlay host, and it works great! Free 7 day trial, just 10 bucks--far cheaper than buying a new printer, and it works with ...

iPhone Fridge App Magnets (Updated!)

Posted on March 11, 2010

You would be flat out lying to me if you were an iPhone addict and didn't want these magnets for your fridge or office. While you're waiting for the iPad to come out next month, or the multi-tasking iPhone 4.0 OS to come out this summer, why not drop a Jackson and pimp out your fridge? I think a few of these will find their way onto a toolbox or the fridge on the set of Motorz. (more…)

Went shootin’, y’all

Posted on December 28, 2007

One thing I've always wanted to do was to shoot a real gun. I never had the opportunity until today. Since my brother-in-law, Kyle, was in town for Christmas, he brought his guns that he inherited from his Dad when he passed. He offered to take me shooting, and I didn't turn him down! So, today I went shooting for the first time with Kyle and his 3 guns: a 22, a 357 (shoots 38 & 357) and his 45 at a local shooting range. It was ...

I (cough) Christmas

Posted on December 19, 2007

Well, it's here again... in full swing. I get it every year, somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas, usually closer to Christmas. This year no exception. It's like clockwork, too... major head cold. First few days starts out with the scratchy throat, then it moves to severe congestion for a day, then straight to a massive sore throat for 3-4 days, combined with the *awesome* congestion. I'm currently going through a box of tissues ...

Extreme holiday lighting

Posted on November 16, 2007

It's that time of year again, and Mel and I will be spending the next two weekends putting up lights outside our house. If you haven't visited my GriswoldHome.com website in a while, it's worth checking out. Traffic to it is dead during 10 months of the year. Magically, during November and December, traffic flourishes! One thing that always gets me in the holiday lighting mood is to watch the video of when Mel and I were on the local news. ...

Wanna go for a swim?

Posted on October 26, 2007

I finally (yes, I have been extremely busy!) got the chance to go outside today to check on the pool. Here's what I found: I cleaned it off, and the edges where the ash had built up on the tile wall. Hopefully the cleaner will do its job so we don't have to drain the pool and get it acid-washed again like we did after the Cedar Fire 4 years ago! Now that the Santa Ana winds have stopped, there's a real good chance all the ash that ...
