Ohio born. Michigan tempered. I believe music is the soundtrack to our lives. It is there through the good, the bad, and whatever mood we find ourselves in. I am a sports fanatic, Star Wars expert, Marvel Movie geek, and I love a good rom-com from time to time. It is the little things that matter the most, so I encourage you to make the most of yours. You are never too old to chase a dream. At the end of the day, I am a little bit Timberlake, mixed with some Blake Shelton, and a little Foo Fighters added in.
Is Michigan Good For Star Gazing?
Michigan is actually the best place in the Eastern United States to stargaze. People go camping up north for a reason. It is also lighter in population which makes for better views. The Alpena area has a few state-designated Dark Sky Preserves
How Early is Too Early For Christmas Lights in Michigan?
Some people are die hard November 1st decorators. Other people hold off until Thanksgiving weekend. My friend is a hunter. He gets the weekend to spend in the blind and then the next weekend he spends it on a ladder. Walk into Meijer or any retail store after Halloween and you'll hear Christmas music. So when is the right time to throw up those lights, inflate that Santa, and hang those wreathes?
Ever Been to What Might Be Michigan’s Last Video Rental Store?
You can find a lot of second hand stores that sell Blu-Rays, DVDs, and Video Cassettes. What about a rental shop? There is one and it is not in Oregon. Michigan does have one. Video Exclusive is in Dearborn Heights.
I’m a Big Bag Hunter With Bow…No I Am Not, But It Is Hunting Season
When it comes to deer hunting, Michigan is one of the best! There are some that might think that is needless animal killing, but that is not accurate. Deer are subject to overpopulation and that leads to more issues
Who Has the Best Takeout in Lansing?
Here in Lansing, we're blessed with some pretty good choices for food. Now, there are a ton of restaurants, and I didn't list them all. I learned a long time ago that you can't make everyone happy. That's where the fun comes in. I make a list and you add your favorite to it.
People Miss That Black Friday Chaos. Whaaat???
We moved even further into the online rabbit hole. While it does give us more time with family, but it does eliminate some tradition. Heading out early Friday morning was a big deal for moms across Michigan and other places too. A big chunk of people actually miss that chaos.
The Day Batman Lost His Voice
Batman the Animated Series has always garnered critical acclaim. For adults and kids alike, it was their Batman. Its look was unique. Its stories were compelling. The other thing that stood out for more than 30 years was the voice. Kevin Conroy created the voice that would define the dark knight. This weekend, that voice was silenced.
Do Love Your House or Do You Wish You Could List It?
Some people have big dreams when it comes to their homes. The truth is, most Americans admit they are not living in their dream homes. Ironically, their dream homes are not priced out of the realm of possibility. Dreams are also in realistic locations. The suburbs, by water, or in a big city. Michigan can offer all of that, but the market is still tough.
A Used Gift Christmas?
"It's the thought that counts," is a saying that will most likely mean more this year. A lot of people are giving used gifts this year. Instead of Amazon and the construction braving trip to the Meridian Mall, people are turning to Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist.
Wakanda Forever and Then Some
Marvel's Phases 4 and 5 have been hit or miss. After Endgame, it has been a struggle. Making a Black Panther sequel has been challenging to say the least. It is not because the first one wasn't successful. The opposite.
