The Hunger Games Official Trailer 2012

The Hunger Games (if you didn't already know) is one of the best book series that I have ever read. If you haven't read it yet, go and get it here... and read it as soon as you can. I couldn't put it down! 
Have you read The Hunger Games? 

The Dark Knight Rises Official Trailer 2

This looks so amazing. I loved Batman Begins & The Dark Knight and thought they were 2 of the best superhero movies ever made!

The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and The Hunger Games are the three movies I am most looking forward to in 2012! Thought the new Spiderman looks pretty good too.

Which movie are you most looking forward to this summer? 

Men In Black 3 - Official Trailer

Men In Black 3 is coming next spring. Preview looks entertaining, though as far as Will Smith goes, I'm still waiting for Independence Day 2! 
Do you think that MIB 3 will be a good movie? 

Sean Quigley - Little Drummer Boy

This is just awesome, and Little Drummer Boy is one of my least favorite Christmas Songs! 

The Ultimate Green Smoothie

A few months back I started making a green smoothie for my wife's breakfast. We were hoping it would help with her Erythromlalgia. And where I do think that it has been part of improving her over all body health which in turn has at least somewhat helped her Erythromelalgia, it has not cured her. Anyway's my initial reaction to the shake was, man was it disgusting looking but if it helped, we were all in....then I tasted it and it has been my breakfast almost every day for the last 5 months or so. It is just so good! Oh and it's healthy too...

Here is how we make our Ultimate Green Smoothie.

Ingredients for two 24oz shakes

1.One whole lime - feel free to add another one if you want it super limey

2.One whole ripe avocado - this make the shake nice and creamy

3.One big handful of spinach leaves

4. Four 1/3-1/2 full droppers of Stevia Clear Liquid - you can get it at WholeFoods but I've found its almost half the price on Amazon.

5. 1 scoop Amazing GreenSuperFood- you can get …

Awesome Cyber Monday TV Deal

UPDATE 2: It appears that the deal is back on as of 3:33PM on Tuesday 11/29/11 - I don't know how long it will last this time, but it is back for $525 as of now! 

I love my Panasonic Plasma TV's, I have a 42" in the bedroom and a 60" inch in the living room. And when I just saw The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42S30 1080p Plasma HDTV for only $525 today, I had to at least bring it up!

And while this TV may not be the top of the line it is a really good TV for an awesome price! If you are looking for a TV in the five hundred dollar price range then look no further!

I have had my 60" Panasonic for a few months and my 42" Panasonic for a few years and have had zero problems with either of them, and the Plasma TV picture quality is amazing. And my delivery experience through Amazon has always been great.

There are many debates on how much you really need to spend on and HDMI cable, as they can be quite pricey. However, I'v…

The Best iPhone Case

A little back story on my iPhone case journey. I am not an easy person to please when it comes to my iPhone cases, through the different versions of the iPhone and continuing with the iPhone 4, I have gone through no less that a dozen different cases. I wanted something that looked good, protected my phone good, and was not bulky at all.

Thankfully after years of searching I have finally found my perfect case, a case that I have finally stuck with longer than a week. The perfect combination of a slim minimal look, pretty decent protection & a price that be can’t be beat.

What is this perfect case, it is the elago S4 Slim Fit.  So why do I love this case. For starters it’s about $10 bucks on Amazon and comes in about a dozen different colors, so you have a lot of choices, and for what you would normally pay for a normal case at the Apple store you could get three different colors to match your changing moods, if that's what you're in to.

Yes the case is on in this picture

iPhone 4S Video

Some of these new features are pretty cool, despite it not being an iPhone 5. 
What do you think? 


This blog is not meant to be political or religious, but this is one of the most powerful documentaries that I've ever seen. Really makes you think....

Ryan Kerrigan with a Pick in the Redskins Win!

Rookie Ryan Kerrigan had an awesome pick in his first game in the NFL while the Redskins looked like a cohesive team for the first time in a long long time....get a great win over the NY Giants 28-14.
How do you think the Redskins will finish this season?

The Great Kitchen Purge

So, as I've mentionedbefore, we are trying to eat healthier. Tracey is on the The pH Miracle diet to hopefully cure or at least help her EM. And me? Well, I'm doing it to support her while knowing that it will be better for me, too.

Yes, I know it does not look that bad, it's because I started purging it a few days ago!
But, while I want to eat healthy (wanting is different than doing), we have a lot of not-so-good-for-you food left in the house. I feel bad just chucking it, so as I phase in my part of the healthy eating, I will phase out the other food in the house.

Over the next few weeks, I will be eating everything that isn't super unhealthy. (The twinkles, sadly, are already trashed). This will include cleaning out the fridge, freezer, and pantry to make room for more healthful food options.

Let the Great Kitchen Purge begin!

When/if you started eating healthy, did you find it hard to get rid of that bad-for-you stuff? Any suggestions on successfully succeeding wi…

Homemade Soup at 10PM

Making Tracey some homemade soup for her veggie diet (we ran out of the stuff I made on Thursday), of course I decided to wait till 10PM.

Any suggestions on good veggie/ vegan soups?

Alexander Ovechkin Top 10 Goals

I am so ready for the 2011-12 Hockey Season and after watching this highlight video of some of Ovechkin's best goals, I can't wait even more! LETS GO CAPS! 
Where do you think the Caps will finish up this season? How many goals will Ovechkin score after the down year he had last year? 

Erythromelalgia, Methadone & Birth Control?!?

This is a video that I found on something that may help EM. The drug she went on is Methadone. Even more interesting, is something that is in the comments section for this video, where someone talks about going on birth control (more specifically YAZ) right around the time that their EM flared up.

Tracey also went on YAZ....and then got EM. I am not sure if they are related but I have now seen this relation mentioned several times and am starting to wonder about a connection here...

Were you on birth control before at anytime before your Erythromelalgia started? 

Rant: Erythromelalgia & Inconsiderate People

A girl with EM ranting about dealing with Erythromelalgia, and more specifically how other people react to it in public. People really do this, and I know that it is because they don't truly understand how horrible this condition is and some of the "strange" things that have to done to make a trip into the world bearable. 
It is something for everyone to think about, when you see someone doing something "different" or "strange" in public, it may just be because they have a condition that you don't know about and they are doing it to reduce or avoid pain. They may just be trying to survive. 
So the next time you see someone sitting in the waiting room with a fan blowing on their feet, just be happy it's not you...oh and say a little prayer for that person! 

Walking On Fire - Video on Erythromelalgia

This is an interesting video on EM, thought it does seem to be more focusing on the genetic version which we don't think that Tracey has. However as with everything regarding EM, it is just a guess that she does not have the genetic kind (based on the fact that no one else in her family has it). 

Help With Tracey's Erythromelalgia

Hey Everyone,
As you may or may not know, Tracey (my wife) has a condition called Erythromelalgia (EM for short). This condition is very painful and debilitating and sadly Tracey is all but bed ridden at this point.

Our Wedding in June of 2006 (Before EM)
With that being said we have not accepted this as forever (despite it being very rare and no "cure" that we know of), so I am asking for everyone's help. If you know of anyone in the medical field (in any capacity, DR, Researcher etc.) please ask them about this condition and see if they know anything that may help (it is very rare and hard to find Dr's that have even heard of it). If you think you have heard of some natural cure (no matter how crazy it may sound) for conditions that even vaguely sound like EM please let us know, even if it is a "cure everything" cure, because it may be at least worth us checking out. If you think of anything that may help us, please let me know, we are looking for any ideas. T…

My Top 5 (Newer) Super Hero Movies!

The Rules:

1. Newer - Had to come out in or after the year 2000
2. Has to be a real movie, not a parody or cartoon
3. Has to be out on BluRay or DVD at the time of this writing (Can't be in Theatre's) 
5. Spiderman


This was probably the toughest choice in this list, as I was having trouble deciding between Spiderman or Spiderman 2...but I decided to give the nod to the original mainly because it was first and because I love seeing how these superheroes got their starts. I think this movie does a great job portraying how Spiderman got his powers and his internal struggles with guilt. A truly great Superhero movie.

Get Spiderman on
Or the Spiderman Trilogy on
