Happy Gilmour and gas prices 2

On my way home from Florida yesterday I was standing at the airport waiting to get my suitcase from baggage check. There were 2 people standing near me that reminded me of the movie Happy Gilmour. It was a man in his 40′s with a moustache resembling that of Ben Stiller’s moustache in the movie ...

Talking on cell phones while driving 1

In response to my buddy iBrett‘s posting on talking on cell phones while driving, I have put together a list of reasons why I think that talking on cell phones while driving is dangerous and should be avoided. I’ve seen the outcome of people talking on their cell phones first-hand, and I’m also guilty of ...

Toilet memo 1

I’ve had memos placed on my desk; I’ve had memos sent in the mail. I’ve even seen a local pizza parlour called “Pizza Memo”. But today was the first time I’ve ever seen a toilet memo at work. I’m not talking about those advertising posters they place above the urinals to keep us entertained while ...

Received an email today from a buddy at work. I didn’t have time to check it out until tonight, but he was correct in the subject of the email when he said “Be Prepared to bust a gut”. Click the image below to see the trailer for my upcoming movie “Trailer Crashers“, starring my buddy ...
