As Seen on TV

I’ve gotta tell you that Allen L. is the Dumper of the Day. Maybe of the week. He has done an amazing thing: Found me 4 places where I can buy Ginsu knives. I know you are chuckling to yourself thinking “Cheap commie bastard buying Ginsu knives when Amazon can speed you some Wüsthof Classic […]

Cool Massachusetts Information

I had no idea this page existed before today, but it’s VERY cool. It’s a listing of all the unofficial names of Massachusetts towns, sections of towns. Around here we have Whalom and Cleghorn on the list. Very interesting info, although I don’t know how useful it is. Unincorporated and Unofficial Names of Massachusetts Communities

An Interesting Job Opportunity

Like a good little unemployed person, I’m doing my daily job search. I found this listing on Monster and am now contemplating a career change. To heck with learning PHP and writing for a living.
