Infinity Band

What do you get the man who has everything? After being married for 27 years, anniversaries tend to be relegated to dinner and maybe dessert. We are bad at celebrating milestones and, since our anniversary is the first week of January, we tend to forego gifts since we just had Christmas. This year, I broke with tradition and got him […]

Dating can be tricky

The idea of meeting someone at a bar or work who turns out to be “the one” is as likely as picking the winning Lottery numbers. CoupleDumb has always been “Pro Online Dating”. This way of meeting people serves two purposes- keeps you safe as you “put yourself out there” while still allowing you to meet people to whom you share common interests. It is because of sites like Match.com that on-line dating is as successful as it is.

When To Remove A Tattoo

Many people have gotten tattoos in the last few decade. Even though we know that tattoos are permanent, many folk think that a little ink is a small price to pay for love. However, we know that love can be a temporary affliction for some and yet the ink is a constant reminder of lover or period of your life that is best forgotten. This is why laser tattoo removal is becoming such an important and necessary service. Like tattoo artists, not all tattoo removal is as professional as Clarkston Dermatology.

The Majestic Athlete

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I couldn’t swim and my physical prowess was limited to long distance running so surfing and sports were not really options. My allegiance to the Dodgers started with a trip to Dodger’s Stadium, a Dodger Dog and “hat day”. I married a lady who loved them as much as I do and have worked hard to indoctrinate my kids with the love of Dodger Blue! When we moved to Miami, this became more difficult and finding sports apparel for my kids became imperative.

Being Mobile

We have dreams. We want to travel and explore this world. We refuse to get comfortable. A few years ago, we experienced a physical set back when Paul was unable to walk for several months due to his back. He had hurt it to the point where his legs would give out and even simple mobility was compromised. We needed to install a portable wheelchair ramp and considered getting an electric motor scooter. Luckily, he was able to regain motion in both his legs and is better health than ever. However, this experience taught us how quickly things can change.

Fun And Vapin

I began smoking at a young age. The habit began as a secret and then evolved into a behavior that was entangled with daily activity. Drink a cup of coffee? Have a cigarette. Have a drink? Have a cigarette. Socialize with friends? Have a cigarette. I tried to limit my smoking to the evenings unless I was on vacation and then it was a free-for-all. Luckily, I quit 2 years ago and have not gone back once. However, that habit is still there and there are some days when the cravings are tough. Electronic Cigarettes lets me still enjoy the feel of smoking without having to leave the fun or smell like an ashtray.

Save on whatever you buy

How are you feeling? Wait, don’t answer that just yet. I can probably guess. Spent, right? Both in a literal and figurative sense, right? I mean, who wouldn’t be considering the growing prices in today’s market. Have you seen the price of the latest iPhone? Jesus Christ, the thing costs like an entire computer. If you’re someone who loves to keep up with the trend, you probably find yourself with an empty wallet more than once a month. Tired of drawing funds out of the ATM? Well, I can probably help you with that. Or, at the very least, make you visit the thing less frequently.

Chillax, Take the Train!

I grew up in Southern California and learned early on that traffic was a way of life. We all knew we would grow up, get our licenses at 16 and join the millions of folks on the freeways. I grew up and moved away. I traveled. All the major cities I visited had one thing that L.A. didn’t have….a train. I loved taking a train to work when I lived in Miami- watching the poor folks stuck in traffic. Moving back to the West Coast was a no brainer. Even though we were unwilling to deal with traffic and moved to the Mountains, we still loved everything our city had to offer. The solution? The Metrolink!
