I found a great place to find a pirate costume if you’re looking or any other kind of pirate merchandise for that matter.  With Halloween coming up, I thought a few people out there might be looking.  If you need any kind of pirate merchandise, check out this site – including cool pirate flag or anything else.  I highly recommend them if you are shopping for a party.

While I’m at it, if anyone is looking for a good Portland photography company, these are the guys.  They handled some pictures recently for a friend of mine and they come highly recommended.  I hate to be just selling plugs today, but they are some good companies.

After all, with National talk like a pirate day, you have to get the word out.  Arrrrr.

Ahoy, I hope everyone out there knows that it is National Talk like a Pirate Day, one of my favorite days of the year.  So, if you aren’t talking like a pirate by now, get started, the day is almost over.  Just be sure to roll your rrrrrr’s as much as possible.  It’s really not that hard.

I love this day, and I’m going all out.  I’m wearing my favorite pirate hat, and our office is decked out with cool stuff.  It’s just so much fun to go to Arrrrrrrby’s for lunch and ask people what their favorite condiment is…..Barrrrrr-b-que sauce.  I had a friend who was going out west to scope out a Portland photographer, and I told him to go down to the coast and go nuts.  I really hope he did.  Avast ye maties!

My new Hobby

Hobbies are great to get into from time to time. It’s so much fun to discover something new that you like and then practice, practice, practice until you master it. Over the years, I’ve had several hobbies; golf, baseball, reading, and so on. Well, lately, I’ve been getting into home decor. I love to design the home to make it aesthetically pleasing. There’s something very relaxing about it.

One of the most enjoyable pieces I’ve been able to decorate with are aquariums. I love mine. I’m always online now, shopping for fish supplies and other parts you need to keep your aquarium active. They are so beautiful and peaceful, and add so much to a home. The glow at night is extremely enjoyable. I had a party recently, and a friend of mine, who loves pirate jewelry and everything pirates, even commented on how much she liked the aquarium. After all, it is National talk like a pirate day, arrrrr.

Alaska Cruise

I just had some friends get back from a cruise they took in Alaska.  I think they booked it from this website.  I’m so jealous because they got to see glaciers, whales, dolphins, seals and all kinds of cool stuff.  Two of them that went are actually engaged and were talking about how beautiful it would be to have wedding out west.  I got curious and went online searching for Portland photography sites.  It’s not Alaska, but these guys are close and it looks like they would do a great job.

Once they got back from their trip, they were so excited about the wildlife they saw that they bought an aquarium.  So, now they are busy stocking it with the right fish aquarium decor and other supplies.  I think it’s hilarious, but I’m sure I’d be as impacted as they were by the trip.  It gets me really excited about the trip I’m taking in January to France with some friends.  Can’t wait!

Shopping on the Internet

I love it! I mean come on, where else can you search so many things, in such a short amount of time, and have it shipped directly to you. The only downfall right now is not having the tangible product in front of you, but I’m sure that will change soon. I’m thinking Back to the Future II. Surely, someone will come up with a sweet hologram image soon to make the shopping experience better.

So, I can buy a bit of everything online right now. For my nephew, I can get him Transformers bedding, and for me, I can get these. The ecommerce business just continues to grow and grow with no real end in sight. There are even companies out there now that will help you have ecommerce success. Maybe I should look into them more. It seems like everyone and their brother is making money online.

Learning My Wife

Being married is a frustrating and wonderful learning experience.  It’s so funny how well you think you know someone until you actually get to live with them every day of your life.  It has been great so far, and I’ll continue to learn the rest of my life.  Some of the things that I now know my wife likes: going slow, spending quality time, mustard, ice cream, dermablend, vanilla frozen coffee, baby bedding, Wal-Mart, flowers, plants, Disney products, Chick-Fil-A, vacations, islands, riding the bus, driving with AC and no music.  This is just a small list, perhaps, I will make another of the things she is not fond of.  It’s so fun to learn what she loves, and then love her through those things.

Workout Injury

For the past month or so, I have been experiencing a lot of pain in my heel during my workouts.  It obviously hurt the most whenever I would do any leg exercises like squats or lunges.  However, I even noticed it in my every day events.  For instance, I was out shopping the other day for pirate party supplies for a friend’s party, and it was really bothering me.  I eventually had to come home and do my shopping online.  So, with my heel, I did some research online and discovered that my symptoms were that of plantar fasciitis.  The website I found was very helpful because it actually gave me some good tips on exercises to help heal the pain.  I’ve been doing the exercises over the past few weeks, and I’ve noticed a real difference.   I love the internet.  There’s an answer for everything.  Here’s hoping I’ll have a full recovery.
