  1. Anyone want to win a custom 7800/2600 controller from RetroGameBoyz??

      Wow!  Yes!

      That's good, since you're already entered! 😀

  2. It only took a few years, but today I was finally lucky enough to see Hamilton in NYC. Expectations were high & they were surpassed. 

  3. Week 6 of the C25K program complete. Week 6, Day 3 wasn’t as bad as Week 6, Day 2, even though there was more running on Day 3. 

    Two weeks left & sadly, there are no walking breaks. Straight running but I know I can do it, knees willing. 

    10 pounds down too! (& counting)

  4. Happy Independence Day USA members!

      Colecovision and SG-1000 would work.

       

  6. After using off the rack clubs my whole life, I'm off to get fitted for my first set of golf clubs! 🏌️‍♂️

      Let us know how it goes Matt!

      Played 9 tonight & hit em pretty well! 4 consecutive pars & nearly had 5. I’ve never done that before, so I’m excited. 

      And for the record, I don’t attribute that to the clubs, but to the impromptu lesson I received during my fitting.

      Wow!

  7. I'm writing more blog posts in my brain. Hopefully some (relatively) entertaining stuff on the way.

      I love what you're doing with your blog @StormSurge, looking forward to whatever's next!

  8. Can’t wait to jump into the Pizza Party high score challenges! Great choices!

      THANKS @StormSurge!! Thrilled to have you participating!! :wreck-it-ralph:

  9. Has anyone else ever done Couch to 5K? The jump from Week 3 to Week 4 is brutal! (I did this a couple of years ago but I forgot about this.)

      No, but sounds interesting.  My metabolism has really slowed down at age 50. I've been exercising more and more, and that really helps to feel good and healthy for me.

      It definitely works & as long as my knees hold up and I can continue to the end, it's a great way to fend off the creeping waistline.

      I'll check that out.  I really like riding a bike, so that's what I've been doing.  Weights and stationary bike every weekday morning, then a real bike when time and weather permit. 

       

  10. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!

  11. THIIIIIIIS close to my first "real" fire call. Reported vehicle fire. It was out when we arrived (which was quickly!). It was a smoking battery. So close!!

      I thought there might be a few hoops to jump through first but I'd love to get a glimpse into that world

      Interesting aside -- the other day I drove my mom to Costco for a hearing aid repair.  There was a car at her exit with smoke coming out from the hood.  The driver was getting a fire extinguisher from the back.

      On the return trip...a completely burned shell of a car!  OH NO!  Poor guy.  It was a pretty new car too...a small Chevy.

      Yikes!!!

  12. I bought Stardew Valley today. Any fans here? I'll take all the pointers I can get. :)

      I will! Thanks Justin!

      I'm in a major slump in PUBG, so I need something a little less stressful to play. 🤯

      It's similar to Harvest Moon, isn't it? I've been wanting to play it for awhile now.

    4. StormSurge

      StormSurge

      I believe so. I never played Harvest Moon, but I do remember reading something regarding that. 

  13. Blog updated! See? I don’t always procrastinate. 🤫

    1. Justin

      Justin

      You cranked that out fast! I can't wait to read through this twice when I get home ☺️

  14. I've finally thought of another topic worthy of a blog post. Not gaming or nostalgia related this time, but hopefully interesting nonetheless. Now I just need to write it. 🙄

    1. Justin

      Justin

      Truly looking forward to this. I love that you guys are hosting your personal blogs here.

  15. I never fail to get excited seeing 2600 Basketball while watching Airplane!

      Hey...at least they are still watching the blip on the radar screen ;)

       

  16. Thank you for all the birthday wishes! It’s definitely not the same at 46 as it was at 9 (2600 Pac Man!) but thanks to you all, not too bad. 😀

  17. Rainy days are THE BEST.

  18. Storm streams nightly (most nights) PUBG sessions. (8-ish to 11-ish)

  19. Cramming for Fire Fighter 1 final exam tomorrow. 22 chapters & 1,500 pages of material. Wish me luck!!

  20. I'm about a week away from having my dream retro machine in my hands. (Modded OG Xbox with 2TB HD FILLED with emulators & ROMs). Of course, I'm going to be away all of next weekend. :(

      It's incredible, from what I've seen. I'll definitely be posting pics & vids once I have it.

  21. Finished King's Quest Chapter One last night and it was fantastic! Looking forward to the rest.

      Awesome! Never played that series...yet.

      It's so worth it. Chapter One was free for a bit but it was so good, I'm definitely in for the rest. The developers deserve my $$$!

  22. Started the Couch to 5K yesterday. Brutal...

  23. Operation Weight Loss 2016 is underway. The struggle to not snack/eat whenever I'm hungry is REAL.

  24. Remembering the Space Shuttle Challenger, 30 years ago today.

      I was in High School. They wheeled in the A/V cart with TVs in all the classrooms so we could watch live. An entire student body sat stunned at what we witnessed.

      Wow. 7th grade for me. There's a great special on NatGeo TV tonight about it. I caught it Tuesday night.

      Same here. Senior in high school. TV set up in the library. Shocking and so sad.
