You can relive that childhood awesomeness when you ride your adult sized big wheel.

Now that August has arrived, it's back to back-to-school shopping. When I was a kid, it was all about having the coolest Trapper Keeper. The Trapper Keeper was the iPhone of the 80's preteen. It held folders and paper and it had a clipboard and you could even stuff photos inside the plastic cover. I vividly remember ogling the Lisa Frank designed Trapper Keepers and begging my mom to spend the $5 on one. I actually had this one.

How Do You Buy Your Music? iTunes, CD or Vinyl?

Back then of course I was a Top 40 junkie and really didn't have much place in my life for full length albums, just the singles. As I began to grow my musical tastes over time, I started buying albums from groups that I  enjoyed. Whether it was singles or albums the only place to go would be a record store. Remember? For the kiddos in the group, 'In my day, we actually had stores that were devoted to nothing but music.' lol

My Childhood Memories: Perry’s Nut House – Home Of The Best Tasting Fudge

It's funny how things are brought back from memory out of nowhere. I was sitting at my desk today and for some reason the name Perry's Nut House came to mind. I can honestly say that I haven't thought of that place in over three decades, but for some reason it just popped into my head today.

My first memory of Perry's has always been the giant gorilla from Africa that would greet me after first walking through the doors, followed by the stretched-out alligator skin that was on the wall. Just talking about it takes me right back to being six or seven years old.

How A Trip To Walmart For Bottled Water Ended Up Costing Me $200

Ask anybody who knows me and they will tell you, 'he's a list guy.'

You bet! I always have some form of list that's near by, whether it's my work 'to do' list, things I need to do when I get home or for the weekend. So, you would THINK that when I head out into the big, bad world to do some shopping that I would have a list with me, right? Well, not this time because I was only heading to Walmart to get a case of bottled water.

As Seen On TV Products- Why Do They Exist?

I was watching a movie last night on demand and after it was over it flipped back to the channel that it was originally on, and of course that was Nick.  Nick and many channels like it have a habit of running short commercials for infomercial products, the "As Seen On TV" products.  This really annoys me, because some of these products are completely ridiculous.
