Things can be pretty simple in mid-America, including date night. Mid America Arms in St Louis was celebrating “Ruger Days” yesterday when I stopped by for a little target ammo. The Ruger P95 caught my attention and was offered at a terrific price. It fit our needs for a 4″ barrel semi-auto and is a nice … More Date Night, Missouri style
So first let me say that I LOVE my original iPad and would be lost without it. It’s revolutionary and changed the way I look at email, the web, video, etc. But I got a wake up call the first time I tried to use it outside, in particular the beach or pool. I found … More iPad3 – I’m on the sidelines
Stopped byTotal Wine and picked up a Scuttlebutt Homeport Blonde to watch a little, ok, A LOT, of hoop tonight. What a great surprise the Scuttlebutt is! A little more hoppy than most blondes, this is one of those brews that makes a burger that much better. great dirty blond color and a slightly fruitty … More a blonde and basketball, nice @scuttlebuttbrew @totalwine

At ~ $15, the 2009 Sean Minor Pinot Noir is a great value. A bit more chewy than the typical Carneros region pinot. it held up well to a grilled tenderloin filet and mushroom risotto. I’m gonna go get me some more of this.
Mario, eight restaurants, eight years and $5.25m worth of his own pork barrel. Thats a lot of dough! http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-03-08/tv-chef-batali-associate-to-pay-5-dot-25-million-to-settle-waiters-tip-suit
Pandora has got something very few consumer companies have – a demo that includes the young and old, the affluent and the economically challenged, but most importantly, they’ve locked up the influencers. Somehow they just can’t seem to make money. Why? my guess is that they dont understand simple ecomonics and have gotten caught up … More How the heck can Pandora lose $8m a quarter? Here’s how…..
