When Buying a Vehicle, Stay Alert and Do Your Research…

If you’ve been following this blog, my podcast or even my daily vlog over the past several weeks, you know that I have been looking for a new truck.  I did not NEED a new truck, but my 2012 Chevy Colorado was going to need some maintenance repairs (breaks and tires) as it was approaching 60,000 miles. I started doing my research and I was originally going to replace my truck with a 2016 Colorado.  I was comfortable with my 2012 Colorado and thought that it would be an easy…

Head in the Cloud…

I have always considered myself to be somewhat of a TechnoGeek.  I have even started a website and YouTube channel called TechnoGeek (www.technogeek.video).  So when the opportunity came that I could own my own Personal Cloud Server and not have to pay $9.95/month to someone else, I jumped at it. Several years ago, I had purchased an Iomega personal cloud and I could never get it to work properly.  I was very unreliable when I was away from my network and even on my network, it would not always work.…

How Much???

I’ve been on YouTube posting a video on and off since 2006.  I started to become more frequent with starting a “daily vlog” in August of 2014.  I do the videos more for fun and for a chronicle of my life. I am starting to use social media to spread the word of my vlog and also using this blog.  I have also started using a tool called “SocialBlade” to keep track of the analytics of my videos.  This tool will also give you information about other YouTube channels, including…

A New Level of Geekdom

  As long as I can remember, I’ve been a Geek, more specifically, a Techno-Geek.  I have always loved anything technology-based.  I needed to figure out how it works, how it can benefit and how can I use this in my life.  This is one of the reasons that I am a Web Designer.  To me, work is not”WORK”.  It is no more of me spending my day playing on the computer, putting pretty pictures on web sites. Within the last year, I have gotten interested in the merger of…

My Wishlist

For those of you know me, I proudly categorize  myself as a Technogeek.  I love technology.  Anything new and cutting edge, I am interested. On Father’s Day, Leigh and the girls got me a quadcopter with a camera on it.  I had been looking at them, and had wanted one so I was very happy to receive this as a gift.  I started flying it and I instantly got hooked.  This is the coolest gift that I have ever gotten. Here is some of the video that I have taken…

Nike Air Monarch IV Sneakers are Junk!!!

Whatever you do, do not purchase Nike “Air Monarch” sneakers.  These sneakers are the biggest pieces of garbage that I have ever owned.  I purchased the pair that I currently have back in February, 2015.  I wear sneakers every day and having diabetes, I have to be very careful of the shoes that I wear.  Kohl’s is where I purchased my sneakers for about $50. I have now had the sneakers for four months and they squeak…  I mean like clown shoes.  I tried using talcum powder and it stopped…

The Dog Ate My Camera

I know, all of you teachers out there are just shaking your heads…  But it is true. I woke up to find out that Tuukka took the camera off of the kitchen table at 5:34am (I know this because the camera snapped a picture) and proceeded to chew through the metal lens of the camera, destroying it.  Once he did that, he realized that he was in trouble and then took the camera and “buried” in under the cushion on the sofa…
