A March 31st meme instead of an April 1st Fool’s Joke this year

March 31, 2024

I tried to come up with an April Fool’s Day joke … but failed … so I’m posting this “Over-The-Speed-Limit” meme a day early.  😊 

A couple of humorous meme photos for Wednesday

What parent hasn’t made that Great White Shark face and an excellent sailboat name.

The best part about Inauguration 2021: Memes of Bernie Sanders

January 22, 2021

Not being an advocate for those advocating bigger government, higher taxes, progressive policies … or most Democrats in general, I was not looking forward to the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States this past week. In fact, I didn’t watch any live coverage and relied on the  news clips […]

Tweetmeme and Nielsen looking at social networking sites

April 30, 2009

While adding a new Twitter feature call Tweetmeme (see retweet button at bottom of post), I stumbled across an interesting statistic compiled by Nielsen which concludes that 60% of Twitter Users Quit within the First Month, at least that is how Mashable writer Pete Cashmore sees it. I’m not sure how that stacks up to […]

We have an extra day this Leap Year … Let’s not waste it!

February 29, 2024

If you are a regular reader, then the answer is “yes” … I’ve been a bit distracted from posting regularly on MDB for the past couple of weeks. I promise to get better in March.  Part of my distraction has been enjoying down time with Brenda in Florida and with my daughter and her family […]

Happy Valentine’s Day: A NEW, but OLD, television series for us

February 14, 2024

After subscribing to PeacockTV in order to watch one of the NFL playoff games this year, Brenda and I found a new but older television series call “The Office.” We are not so disconnected from popular TV entertainment to not have known about it, but just never spent time watching television when it was in […]

How does a manual transmission and clutch work? #video

February 6, 2024

While looking for an excuse to modify and add this automotive humor meme to a post … Below the break there’s an animagraff that details a front wheel drive manual transmission and clutch assembly on YouTube.  It’s well done and rather mesmerizing.

Phone booths today vs phone booths yesterday #TBT

December 14, 2023

Since I was a heavy phone booth user as a sales guy back in the day (usually drive up style)  … hence #TBT post … I couldn’t help finding humor in this social media meme. 

Idioms: The whole – or full – nine – six – yards phrase

October 30, 2022

Although the meme floating around social networks (the one at the bottom of this post) is probably not correct, I enjoyed it enough to do a little digging. Personally I’ve always thought that “the whole (or full) nine (six) yards” had to do with the innings in a baseball game (old article below), so I […]

Does she smile or not smile … that is the question?

February 20, 2022

The photo to the left is one of those photos taking up bandwidth and being passed around the Internet in emails and on social networks. The assumption is that most people see a photo of a girl who is NOT smiling. The suggestion is that if you “squint” a bit, you can see a photo […]

Pondering the worth of our Amazon Prime annual membership

September 30, 2021

Currently, Amazon Prime costs $119/year if you opt for an annual subscription and after the charges shows up each year on our credit card, I ask the same question: “Is Amazon Prime worth it?” (where are those 2015 prices) Eventually the irritation passes, the bill gets paid and we’re off to ordering and streaming for […]

Some thoughts on investing as technology races forward

August 20, 2021

Most aging entrepreneurs and investors can “in hindsight” spot their mistakes and missed opportunities, but with age and experience, also comes wisdom. The pace of change is rapidly accelerating and decisions seem to be made much faster and happen quicker nowadays’; I suspect even millennials are learning this faster? As a more cautious trader and […]

Funny, but not funny … perhaps it is the frustration we all feel?

December 16, 2020

Are you tired of this COVID19 lockdown yet? It is hard to believe the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic AND those politicians dictating shutdowns in their mini-kingdoms have not had more pushback than they have? Way too many small businesses, and especially people working in the travel and food service industry, will not be having much of […]

Merry Christmas 2012

December 13, 2012

Ah … we’re finished with this year’s Corbett Christmas Letter … they are in the mail! (click for a PDF copy) One of my favorite things about celebrating Christmas is the reminiscing — especially when putting up, or just looking at, the decorated tree in our house. We have a mish-mash Christmas tree with decorations […]

Archive: According to Google, winter is here … and cookies!

December 19, 2011

Fun new winter Google Easter Egg similar to the partial archived list from an earlier post … “Let it snow.” Also thought I’d include the tasty looking Christmas cookies my daughter made … unfortunately she is taking them to work and not bring them too me!

Who doesn’t PLANK while reading the morning paper?

June 13, 2011

I’m just keeping my kids on their toes … and trying to stay one step ahead of their assumption that I’m just an old 52 year old fuddy duddy dad. Hey, I may not be doing all that much more cliff diving, but am probably in the top ten percent of 50+ year old “plankers!” […]

BMW 335d would be a great car to own (and drive)

April 25, 2011

The 2011 BMW 335d was voted the “Diesel Car of the Year” at the New York International Auto Show by readers of “The Diesel Driver” … following up the positive comment from others in prior years … like MotorTrend saying that the “BMW 335d is the best car I’ve driven in a very long time.” […]

Well prepared cruising sailor shares his story

January 26, 2010

Wayne Meretsky shares  the “Loss of Moonduster“ We arrived in Savusavu, Fiji, on Monday, November 23, after a fairly uneventful 3-day passage from Tonga. Our goal was to spend a month cruising the western Yasawa Islands before leaving from Lautoka around Christmas to arrive in New Zealand early in the New Year. After a week […]

Canadian Rockies 2005

August 2, 2005

I had planned on updating our trip to the Canadian Rockies daily, but as with most vacations, the time went by way too fast, besides that, the days were long and tiring. My son and I flew into Calgary, Alberta the last week in July and were picked up by Jeff, a long time friend […]

President Bush addresses troops and nation

June 29, 2005

The President of the United States addressed the nation on Tuesday night (June 28, 2005) and outlined the continuing War on Terror. (right-click and save-as this MP3 audio to listen) The polite and respectful Airbourne Army troops at Fort Bragg, NC hosted their commander in chief and listened intently to the accurate review and complementary […]
