Hard to believe I retired 9 years ago today.

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Tempus certainly does fugit. It is hard to believe I retired on June 30, 2004, 9 years ago today.  It seems more like 9 months rather than 9 years.

Droid DNA is grossly underrated, it is an excellent smartphone.

The Droid DNA is a grossly under-rated phone.  Fantastic full HD 5″ screen, fast, no lag, LTE, great HTC build quality, easy to hold.

The Heat – 3 stars

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

The Heat is funny, crude, and somewhat callous at times. It borders on sexist (anti- men) as well.  Of course, I am not target audience.

White House Down – 2 1/2 stars

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

White House Down has lots of action, top effects, decent story.  Sad it was “cheapened” with typical Hollywood political bias /  agenda

The Bling Ring – 2 stars

Monday, June 24th, 2013

I am definitely not the target audience for The Bling Ring, about 40 years too old.  Target audience should enjoy.

Still like a yo-yo with my weight reduction, got to get my act together.

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Been like a yo-yo since my May 28 post.  I lost 7 pounds, but gained it back with a one pound bonus.  Today I weigh 75 pounds more than I did on New Years Eve 2011.  I am still 90 pounds lighter than my all-time high; however, I do not like my current weight trends at all. 

I will focus again on my weight starting today.  My goal is to loose as much of this newly gained 75 pounds as I can by the end of this year, and continue loosing the remainder in early 2014.  I will not be happy with my weight until I weigh at least 1 pound less than I did on New Years Eve 2011.

Monsters University – 4 1/2 stars

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Monsters University is very good, another kid’s movie an adult can enjoy.  Interesting story, great animation, quality voice casting.

World War Z – 2 1/2 stars

Friday, June 21st, 2013

World War Z is OK.  Brad gave a fine performance, effects were top notch; however, just could not get into another “zombie” movie.

The Man Of Steel – 4 stars

Friday, June 14th, 2013

The Man Of Steel is very good. Story is interesting, dark, effects top notch, quality performances, definitely a different Superman story.

The Prey – 5 stars

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

The Prey is excellent.  Subtitled French movie, very interesting story, top performances, maintained interest, suspenseful   Recommended.
