Chicago Cubs are finally World Series Champions

| November 3, 2016

I had the best of intentions in updating a more complete rundown of World Series Game 7 between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians, but with extra innings and a rain delay, the game went into the wee hours. Maybe more tomorrow? For now, congratulations to the 2016 World Series Champions the Chicago Cubs […]

Cubs dominate the Indians in game 2 – CHC 5 – CLE 1

| October 27, 2016

The World Series is likely the most watched fall classic by midwestern Major League Baseball fans in a long time as the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs have now split their first two games at Progressive Field in Cleveland. It has been exciting to watch and cheer but ticket prices are shocking even those use […]

Election year burnout relief: The Cubs vs Indians World Series

Tech changes: Another free cloud storage service is gone

| October 19, 2016

Wouldn’t you know, about the time the Cubs find themselves inching closer to a World Series (drought since 1908), the Logmein FREE cloud storage component know as Cubby is being retired. I highlight "free" since paying PRO customers will continue to keep their storage. For me, Cubby has been a regular file exchange option, although […]

Ugly election, Middle East unrest, Economy – October surprise?

| October 18, 2016

Maybe it is just me being a little nervous, but there are a lot of potential triggers for panic. The craziest presidential election I’ve ever seen, a stock market that has risen longer than average between recessions (with tepid economic growth), unrest in the middle east (of course always on fire) and both the Chicago […]

  Nicely done Nicki and Tim Bluhm (Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers mentioned multiple times on my blog)! They sang the National Anthem in game 5 of the NLCS as San Francisco clinched the pennant in a 6 to 3 win over the St Louis Cardinals. Nicki & Tim Bluhm (mp3) NLCS Game 5 It […]

Cardinals beat Rangers in World Series game 6

| October 28, 2011

Although I missed the first two World Series games, I’ve enjoyed the last several games and game 6 was no exception. The St. Louis Cardinals started strong, then faltered … then came back to stay alive and win. In the end the back and forth ties eventually saw the strong St. Louis bats win out […]

Watching football, rugby, baseball & a less than simple assembly

| October 24, 2011

This past weekend felt like I was spinning my wheels and wasting time. A little cleaning around the house, watching some football and rugby (below), some brief tinkering with the carburetor on the MGB (which is still not right) and finally assembled Brenda’s “inversion machine” – don’t ask.  The latter took most of Sunday afternoon […]
