Playing with Continental Tires in Uvalde Texas

Before dropping with an illness that can only be described as The Plague I spent a weekend in Texas with Continental Tires. A group of us flew into San Antonio, had a lovely dinner on the Riverwalk and then woke up a few minutes before God on Saturday morning to make the trek out to Uvalde where Continental Tires has their proving grounds. Before tossing out a phrase like “proving ground” let me take a moment to define a proving ground. In this instance it includes (but is not limited …

The Great Gatsby is Only Partly Great but You’ll See it Anyhow

Jane and I just came home from seeing the Great Gatsby. There was a fundraiser for Project Angel Food and since I’m absolutely delighted to give them money while getting nothing in return I was just as delighted to buy a couple of tickets to see Gatsby at the Real D screening room in Beverly Hills.

Book Review: Leaning Back and Reading Sheryl Sandberg

During Spring Break I read Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. I was going to do a video review of it because everything that could be written about it has been.

Tough Stuff: RokBed V3 Samsung Galaxy S3 Case Review

Thanks in advance to William Vega, contributing writer, for another great post.  There’s a reason I have an S3: I like its slim form factor.

Not only is it unsightly (and so clearly not the kind of bulge I want to be showing off), but it’s uncomfortable. It’s why I made it a point to buy my S3 only when I knew slim silicone covers were available. Like …

Pocket Projector: Telstar MP50 HDMI Projector Review

I hope you enjoy this gadget review from my friend William.  Pocket Projector: Telstar MP50 HDMI Projector Review Telstar’s new portable projector is lightweight, nice to look at, and (most importantly) easy to use. It’s only slightly bigger than a stack of Post-It notes (3.9″ x 3.8″ x .89″ to be exact), so it fits quite nicely in a purse, a backpack, or even a forgiving pants pocket. I wasted no time in putting the projector to use. Since I don’t read manuals, I simply plugged the sucker in and …
