NBC's Thursday Night

There is no better night of television than NBC's Thursday night line-up. Shows such as My Name is Earl, The Office, and 30 Rock is a refreshing evening of smart and very funny comedies. The shows are now going to be joined (albeit temporarily) by the Saturday Night Live "news update" a short version of the show that will cover all the election and other news that is produced as the next president is getting closer to being decided. The "Weekend Update" segment has always been one of SNL's finest and the insertion of it into the already great line-up is bound to be a winner.
also making it's Thursday debut will be Kath and Kim, another single-camera comedy starring Selma Blair and Molly Shannon. From what I've seen, the show may be too smarky for it's own good. It's a concept that puts two dim-bulb females into odd situations, involving their inability to function in society. its got a good supporting cast, but may not be accessible enough for most people. However, I though the same thing before NBC's version of The Office premiered, so I may be surprised again.

There is very little time left to pre-register for an amazing auction. Charter High-Speed Internet is going to blow your mind. Before registering make sure you live within an area that will have Charter High-Speed Internet. What you will be bidding on is how much you are willing to pay for internet service for life. I think that a simple math equation may help you put into perspective how valuable this offer is. If you currently pay $50 a month(which is what I pay) and you have the internet for another 50 years (which is how long I hope to have it) you are talking about spending around $30,000 and that doesn't even leave room for inflation. So go ahead, bid high and if you win not only will you have amazing internet service for the rest of your life but you also will have the opportunity for something more you will also have a chance to win a Nintendo Wii.
Don't wait any longer, bid today!

I already spoke a little about PokerDIY but shortly after I wrote my last article one of my readers wrote me and told me that he was a member of PokerDIY. Apparently in college Mike, my reader, and his roommate along with a few other guys from his dorm would play poker on Monday nights. When the graduated the moved to different parts of country and could no longer have poker nights under recently when they found PokerDIY. They all joined PokerDIY and now play together every Monday night. Apparently my suggestion was more then a suggestion, it was already a part of my readers life.
There are a few online free Poker sites out there but none like PokerDIY. PokerDIY has a great features including starting your own poker league. You really should give it a try. Dedicate one night a week to playing poker and start a league, or start a league that is already started. It is also a great way to play Poker without going broke(especially is your luck isn't the best). Learn tips, share secrets, and most of all, enjoy playing the game.

I found it on Spock!!

I know, you have already read many of my previous articles about Spock and how great it is, but I continue to be amazed by who and what you can search for on Spock. I have been trying different people, both famous and not, and I found that Spock is really a great place to find anyone!
I typed in the word "engineering" and what I found was amazing. First, I noticed, like Google, there are sponsored ads at the top and on the side, which I always found helpful since the companies who make money spend money to continue to promote themselves. I then found a list of engineers from across the country. It seemed to start with professors and academic deans of engineering programs at universities and colleges in the U.S. which leads me to wonder what the sorting order of these results are.
I found a neat link to a 95 year old engineer names Andrew Kantrowitz who taught at Cornell University and was a physicist for NACA. There is a large article on Mr. Kantrowitz on Spock which leads to Wikipedia.
I am predicting that within 2 years school districts will be using Spock as one of the main search engines for biographies for its students. Spock has everything that students would need to complete a school project. Spock has pictures, links to articles across the world wide web and even related people to the subject. The more time I spend playing around with Spock the amazing I find it.

Give Spock a Shot

As a blogger I am constantly working with and for web designers. Before I begin a project I like to know what kind of person I'm working for. Since e-mails can be so misleading and most of my work is done via e-mail, it is nice to know what the people who actually interact with the web designers I work with them about them. There is this site called Spock which is absolutely amazing! Spock is a place where you can search for anyone. Use the site to find friends from high school or college. Use Spock to do a background check before a blind date, or use Spock to find out the truth about the people you work with or for.
Don't waste anymore time, check it out today!

Find your dentist on Spock

Looking for a health care professional? Why not check out Spock? If you are looking for a Dentist go to Spock and search for dentists around your area. After you pick the dentist you think you like search that dentist's name in Spock and see what people have to say about him or her. No more professionals giving you referrals of 5 patients when he or she has dozens of patients who wouldn't recommend that doctor or dentist to their worst enemy.
Spock is a great site for finding a Dentist and a great site for finding anyone; and I mean ANYONE!

Better then Google? Yes and No!

I recently came across an article about the site Spock, which I have already reviewed as a personal interest piece. In this article the writer states that Spock is better than Google. I was surprised by how adamant she was that I had to comment.
I agree with her that on Spock you can find almost anybody in the world, which is crazy when you think about how many millions of people there are. Now let me stop you and tell you that I don't mean that you can find almost any celebrity on there, I mean anyone. Go ahead and type in your name. Does anything come up? I was surprised when mine did.
As for if it better then Google or not, I would say yes when it comes to finding people, but Spock doesn't really have any of the other features that Google does. Spock is definitely a good site. Check it out.

The Wikipedia for People Pages and Faces

There is a new social network, not quite like Facebook or MySpace, but definitely on it's way up. This site is much more like Wikipedia meets Facebook meets Google. Spock, a free people search, is neat in its own right, but where I see it going is as a high school essential. Every high school that I know of has cliques, popular contests and general issues with fitting in. At Spock high school students could post pictures, information, and articles about themselves and their classmates. The only concern that I see with this is that there is the possibility for feelings being hurt, yet, it seems that in this technological age, spreading rumors and viciously attacking one-another is easier then ever.
On the positive side, I see how Spock is almost a Wikipedia for people search only and we all see how popular Wikipedia is. Only time can tell what the potential popularity for Spock will be, but I believe with popular marketing Spock could be the next Wikipedia.

Comparision site that saves you money

I love sites where real people tell you what they think about similar products and services. For example, speaking in terms of cost and service, which at home dvd rental service is better, Blockbuster or Netflix? At Best Buys customers review products and services to help you make the best decision for your wallet and patience.
At Best Buys you can also purchase products. If you shop online you probably have, atleast once, viewed multiple online stores looking for the best deal on a particular product. Best Buys does that for you. No more spending 30 minutes to save yourself $5. Go to Best Buys and search for the product you are looking for. Best Buys will bring up that product and show you where you can purchase it for the least amount of money.
A tip for the upcoming holiday season(and all year round). If you can't figure out what to get someone as a gift consider purchasing a gift card through Best Buys. You can use the Best Buys gift card at U.S. stores and online. The possibilities are endless with a Best Buys giftcard.

The Best Place to Play Poker!

If you like to play Poker but always play with a computer program stop letting the computer cheat. Start playing with real people. At PokerDIY you can start a free account and play with players from around the world. My favorite feature is that you can manage your own poker leagues. Get together to friends from home or across the country and have your poker night in your underwear. Host local games(with your clothes on) and much more. Can you just imagine, you and a few of your friends sitting around the dining room table on a Saturday night, all with your laptops playing poker? Sounds like fun doesn't it? I think so!
Check it out. It's free, it's fun, and it is the best poker site I've ever come across!

At 36, McDonalds still makes me feel like a kid!

As a 36 year old male, I like to think that I have grown past the days of happy meals, clowns, and play places, but McDonalds always seems to take me back. Most recently, I found myself visiting my local McDonalds(in Cranberry Twp, Pa) almost everyday(sometimes multiple times a day) to get myself a hamburger happy meal because of the best toy McDonalds has ever made, Star Wars toys! Not only did the toys take me back to when I was a kid and saw Star Wars in the movie theater with my dad but also took me back to after the movie when my dad would take me to McDonalds.

What the Heck is our Government doing?

Ok, I typically do share my opinion on the government, and if I do, it usually isn't as heated as this blog is going to be. What is our government doing? I have to comment on these corporations who may be bailed out by the government. I'm ok with a bailout if there are certain requirements to the bailout. First, if a company's executive(s) has made, in bonuses, in the last 5 years combined more then or the same amount that the company is in the hole for, then that company should not be given the opportunity at a bailout. These companies where the CEO is making a $5,000,000 bonus at the end of the 1st quarter and then at the end of the 2nd quarter the company is claiming bankruptcy because they are $5,000,000 in debt makes no sense. If company executives have been giving up their bonuses and, in some cases, have been giving up portions of their salary in order to try to get the company back to where it needs to be, I am all for them getting help from the government, but those companies who act like everything is fine and dandy and then one day they are suddenly $10 or $20 million in debt. Forget them.

Pandora, a little gift from heaven

If you listen to music on the radio or through any other online live feed, STOP! Pandora, a free online music radio station, is absolutely the best option for listening to the radio.

Pandora also allows you to play a mix of the stations you have picking and choosing what mix you would prefer.

You don't need to go and open a separate window and search to purchase the song, you can purchase right from Pandora.
Don't waste your time with other websites and radio stations. Everything you need is at Pandora.

Healthy breakfast can be found at McDonalds

If I told you that making McDonalds a part of your daily routine would help you get thin, would you believe me? Surprisingly it can be. As I'm sure you have heard before, eating a healthy breakfast can speed up your metabolism and help with weight loss. There are many items at McDonalds which are actually not too bad for you as a morning meal, however, there is one item that is perfect as a mid-day snack or even better as a morning meal. This item of perfection is the fruit and yogurt parfait. Usually sold as a dessert item, the fruit and yogurt parfait is only 130 calories(without the granola, which, for an extra 20 calories, is fine to add in) and is filled with all the health benefits a low-fat yogurt,fresh strawberries and blueberries hold.
So after your fresh cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal, stop at McDonalds on your way to work and pick up a fruit and yogurt parfait. It takes like a dessert, and is beneficial to staying or getting thin.

Review of PTC Site

BooBearClix is a new ptc(paid to click) website with the possibility to make members a lot of money. As many well versed paid to click members know, without referrals, it will take anywhere from 30-90 days to make enough money to reach payout and when payouts are made it takes around 20 days to receive your $10 or $20. At BooBearClix not only do you have the opportunity to reach payout each and every day, BooBearClix also pays out every 10 days. To make BooBearClix even better, members get paid for clicking on links at other PTC sites. One member has made over $1,000 in one month between BooBearClix and the other sites that he clicks.
The concept is simple, not only does the administration have advertisers pay to have their links clicked on, but the administration also has members sign-up for PTC sites under the site and the administration receives a commission for those sites that members click on enabling them to pay members a portion of that commission to thank them for signing up.
Overall I think that BooBearClix is a great opportunity for paid to clickers especially new paid to clickers. Take a minute and visit the site. You can become a member too and make over a $1,000 a month.
