  • It always amazes me that anytime you want to pursue a dream there are two things that almost always seem to stand in your way; money and politics.  I recently was making an attempt to improve my career by delving into the Six Sigma arena and attempted to enroll in a Black Belt Master Class that would allow me to become certified.  The cost of the 32 week course came to roughly $7000.  So like any student trying to start out on their education, I looked at student loans.  So in talking with Villanova University they indicated they take the…

  • Waiting for the Weekend Project

    So over the Labor Day holiday weekend, I had an opportunity to start working on my newest technical project; rebuilding my old desktop computer.  I started off with a brand new 24" Samsung curved monitor which looks absolutely amazing on the desk.   Along with the monitor, I decided to splurge and get a really nice backlit gaming keyboard so I can really enjoy my cyber gaming experiences.

  • A Weekend with the Family

    This past weekend, my family and I had the opportunity to go on a small vacation together; something we haven't done together in quite a long time.  The amount of fun we had was definitely off the charts and I can only hope that they had as much fun as I did.

  • Remembering the Past - Babylon 5

    Last night I just finished rewatching the entire series of a great science fiction classic, Babylon 5, and I must say I continue to enjoy the series every single time I watch it.  This show has one of the best stories I have seen on a science fiction show and like several other of my favorite shows, it seems many of the episodes are linked together throughout the story. The storyline of Babylon 5 is about a space outpost setup by Earth as a sort of neutral ground area where all races in the universe can come together peacefully and…

  • Good Things On The Horizon

    So we are coming to the end of the August and while summer may be ending, the gaming world is really starting to take off.  Lots of things going on at the end of the month.  The two most notable for me are the new World of Warcraft Expansion:  Legion and Fallout 4's final DLC, Nuka World. So starting off with Legion; some expansions from Blizzard have been okay and others have been absolutely amazing.  I am very hopeful that this new expasion follows the later.  So far the pre-expansion content has been exceptional, in my opinion.  Similar to many…
