Goodbye Guitar Hero

The popular video game called Guitar Hero has stopped being produced. The company called Blizzard Inc stopped making the game as the sales are failing. The game was very popular for many years but interest has faded.

The game was fun for awhile and very profitable for the company. The problem was that it was expensive to make and many accessories are required. The company will go on though as it just released the popular “Call of Duty: Black Ops” game.

I can remember going to the local strip mall that had so many stores that attracted youth, games, videos, music back in “the day” I spent a good amount of time at the local guitar center dallas with their unique clientele of odd folks that I felt so at home with. Most likely I never will have that type of relationship with people like that that I met through out those younger years.

Giant Fish Sales

The Japanese have been well known for their love of fish. This is especially true when it comes to the taste of tuna. They have proven their love of tuna when a Japanese businessman paid a record price of $ 750,000 dollars for a prized blue fin tuna. He plans to sell the fish to the customers at his restaurant.

The tuna weighed in at a weight of 592 pounds. The owner of the fish says it is perfect with just the right amount of fat and that the color is very good. I guess time will tell and we will see whether or not the tuna pays off.

New Year Resolutions

I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I can’t help feel that they are land mines that doom us to failure rather than inspire us to succeed at something. Most people seem to focus on losing weight or quitting smoking or ending some bad habit. Those are hard to do and just because you make a promise on New Year’s Day to stop doing it does not make the magic solution to your problem.

This year I am going to resolve to be more sociable. I know that will be hard to measure and hard to gauge success or failure at such a noble effort, but I feel like I need to make a bigger effort to build a social network of people who have either common interests with me or who can help me achieve my own goals, like a mentor or someone in my field that can teach me or lead me to higher achievements.

So wish me luck with my resolution and I’ll wish you luck with yours.

Merry Christmas To All

It’s that wonderful time of the year again and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This years Christmas has been wonderful so far and I hope it has been for you too!

We had a great ham dinner and relatives galore. We had some great phone calls from far away family and cards and letters from old friends. All the presents are unwrapped and everyone got a treat. All in all it was a great time for all!

happy holidays

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Let The Christmas Music Begin

I like Christmas music. Really I do but not all of the time. I really hate it when my favorite station goes to nothing but Christmas music.  Worst of all, my two favorite stations to listen to in my car went to nothing but holiday music the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Well I may as well get into the mood and post one of the songs that used to make me giggle like a little girl when I was a kid.  Yeah, I admit it!  I did giggle like a little girl when I was a kid but I don’t know anyone that didn’t.  Being a kid at Christmas was enough to bring giggles to us all. Happy giggling!!
