Apple Plus Sony Equals Match Made in Hell

My daughter is nine days old. I have six hours of video. I also have a Macbook and a Sony Handycam. Translation: I'm screwed. Turns out that Sony sucks and refuses to provide any sort of software compatible with Apple. After reading through multiple forum discussions, I took someone's brilliant advice and bought iLife '08 for the Macbook. It contains iMovie, iPhoto, etc. iMovie was supposed to cure my ills. Fat chance.  Now I'm sitting at my sucky 4 year-old basic Dell desktop, uploading my videos because it's the only computer in the house that will allow it. I wouldn't […]

Christmas is Over. Now What?

Now that Christmas has come and gone, our bellies are full of Christmas delight, cookies, pies, turkey and so forth, family members and friends are or will be soon making their  way back to their own homes and their regular lives. As we prepare for the New Year what happens to the bonds that have been re-kindled, made and established with new friends and old, family members and loved ones a-like? Do we? Will you maintain this attitude of generosity and appreciation, charity and love, smiling, happiness and joy?  Helping around the house to clean up, being nice to the […]

Useful or Useless: Which are You?

I hear people say all of the time, "I need to go to the gym. I’m getting fat. I need to stop smoking. I need to eat better. I need to be more efficient with my money. I need, I need, I need." STOP TALKING ABOUT IT AND DO IT! No one wants to hear you wine and complain about what you ought to do or what you want to do and then watch you do nothing about it. You are wasting oxygen. If you actually want to do something, you will act on it. If you’re hungry, you’ll eat. […]

97.1 The Eagle Returns to Rock Your FM

If you're like me, you have trouble getting into the Christmas spirit. There's so much work to do, and balancing of job, family, fitness, and fun. So I've been relying on 97.1's 24/7 Christmas music to keep me focused on celebrating the season. I'm flipping through my preset stations in the car today, and suddenly 97.1 FM doesn't sound so Christmassy anymore. In fact, it sounds a lot like a rock n' roll station. In fact, it sounds A LOT like The Eagle reborn. In fact, it is.   For those of you whining about the lack of rock on […]

Season’s GREEDings

Seasons Greedings! Christ, family, loved ones, friends… that is what this holiday is about, right? It appears that we as a culture have gotten away from appreciating true love for what is and have equated that love with what and how many presents and gifts we receive. This time of year is a time to recognize the ones you love and care for in many ways. Not just with toys and clothes and money, but with time, respect, appreciation, love and adoration. Give more, love more, hug more, and kiss more. Take this time to show the ones you care […]
