WifeGeeding and I successfully cooked a very flavorful and tender turkey . . . but it still wasn’t as good as my mother’s.Â But there’s plenty of time for us to practice.
I don’t think there will ever be a reason or a sale so fantastic that I would be willing to wake up early on Black Friday and be part of the mayhem.
But I’m all about Cyber Monday.
However . . . it’s going to be a frugal Christmas in the Geeding household this year.
For those that live in DFW . . . that Winstar Casino “Rome” commercial is driving me bonkers.

I actually watched a two hour special I Tivo’d way back when over Einstein’s theory of relativity.Â I wasn’t aware that it took a total eclipse to prove his theory, and that later in life he married his cousin.Â Oh, and his first wife only granted a divorce after he said he would give her his Nobel prize money he was so confident he was going to win.Â Funny thing is, he didn’t win it for his theory of relativity.
Oh, and I also finally watched an hour long special on the Lunar Rover.Â It’s amazing how they were able to make it fold in a space less than five cubic feet.Â And in case you didn’t know, there are three of them on the moon.
I also watched a History channel special on the White House and learned something new.Â There was talk about moving the nation’s capitol from D.C. to Cincinnati after the British torched DC in 1814.Â The thought being if the nation’s capitol was closer inland it would be better protected.

College football games are fun, but the BCS makes it difficult to be a fan.
It’s December, which means it’s time for the Cowboys to fold and flush all our hopes down the toilet.
I liked the way the Redskins honored Sean Taylor.
The NFL in 3D will be the next new thing.Â Article Maybe that deserved its own separate post.
On a quiz show I learned the largest city in Missouri is actually Kansas City.Â I would have thought it was St Louis.
Speaking of St Louis, here’s a video of the guy who changes the light bulb on top of the Gateway Arch.Â He does it about once a year.Â I have a fear of heights, I couldn’t do anything like that.
A somewhat interesting article on prayer websites.Â Article
I found the perfect birthday card for a friend the other day, but his birthday recently passed, so I’m going to have to hold on to this card for a whole year.
Life sure can be stranger than fiction.Â I most recently thought of that after reading about the story of Dan White.
I did a lot of electronic cleaning and discovered a have a lot of power cords that go to nothing, miles of telephone cords, lots of RCA cables, three old PCs I’ll never use, and a lot of other e-crap that needs to be recycled instead of being thrown out.
