Twitter 101 – Using SMS on Twitter

I have been using twitter now since May 2008 when it was mostly an SMS service. Texting was big “way back then” and twitter allowed me to use my old blackberry to communicate with a large group of people via SMS or text message. The same still holds true today but most people have forgotten…Continue readingTwitter 101 – Using SMS on Twitter

Panera Bread’s 30 Minute WiFi limit

Saturday I was having a working lunch at Panera Bread before heading over to Roosevelt Field Mall and a little iPad action.

A GERMAN MEXICAN and the ONLY member of the Mexican Winter Olympic Team! I can’t make this stuff up! I absolutely love this story because this is a true life playboy.

The “Final” Night Launch of the Space Shuttle

These night launches were always so spectacular. Sadly this was the last one. There are four more shuttle launches till the fleet is retired. You can get this video and so much more from the NASA YouTube Channel. I am still a little sad that the Shuttle fleet will soon be retired. The next generation…Continue readingThe “Final” Night Launch of the Space Shuttle

USS New York

I recently went to visit the USS New York while it was docked here at Pier 88 right next to the Intrepid this past week. The weather really did cooperate all week, topping out at 70 degrees, and the tour of the Navy’s newest warship was also completely free! While I was walking through the ship the…Continue readingUSS New York

Hard to believe the Shuttles are 25 years old! Watching a Shuttle Launch is something I plan on doing before the fleet is retired. You…Continue readingNight Shuttle Launch – Spectacular!
