We’ve posted a new video on our YouTube Channel with a fun subject – toys! I was feeling nostalgic after working on my list of Favorite 80s Movies, and with that waive of sentiment came flooding back memories of the toys I loved playing with while growing up. I worked with Jay, our Technical Producer, and we came up with the following video, talking about … Continue reading A Modern Man’s Favorite Toys Growing Up

As a little kid, there was a stretch of I-95 in Connecticut that drove right by a giant Toys R Us.

My wife made these for the family … Continue reading By Popular Demand – Gluten Free & Low Sugar Cupcake Recipe
For years, I couldn’t go near an Indian Restaurant. The smell made me want to fall over. It would hit me in the nose, close my throat and kill my appetite for days.

Wasn’t I 7-years-old and playing Wiffle Ball in my backyard yesterday? Wasn’t I 12-years-old riding my BMX bike too fast (with no helmet) yesterday? Wasn’t I in high school wearing my oh-so-trendy “Co-Ed … Continue reading Disney Music Makes You Age!
