Olevia Where Are You?

I bought a 32inch LCD Olevia TV at Kmart for $400 bucks back in 2007. I heard advertisements on the Mike & Mike show on ESPN not even a year ago, but now this company left us as quick as Enron. If you try to go to their website these days you just get a dead link. Reading up, the company seems that they were a fly by night business that was filled with corruption.

Found out, people are in need and looking for the PDF user manual that was available on Olevia's website. I was lucky and saved the PDF on my computer. So now I'm here to help out any people that has this model tv.

You can download the PDF manual here:
The PDF is about 28mb and for some reason the link times out. Can anyone help provide some method how to get this out to the public.

The TV still works great!

Nutcracker ballet

My seat was labeled perfectly for me. I test if I like ballets and it's a no. I Rather watch plays then watch them dance

2nd Autograph Baseball in my collection

This baseball was a couple of years later than 1992. I remember waiting out side where the players parking lot was for all of these. Those were my best days of being a Yankee and a baseball fan.

On this ball I have the following players.
1. Pat Kelly (I know again!!!)
2. Paul O'Neil
3. Joe Girardi
4. Derek Jeter
5. David Wells
6. Mariano Rivera

I really wonder how much a baseball is worth. Rivera's autograph goes for $200, Jeter's for $400, $150 for David Wells, and around $30 for Pat Kelly :)

Autograph Baseballs from my Childhood

I'm trying to figure out who all is on my one autograph baseball from 1992. It was Old Timers Day against the Baltimore Orioles. We had great seats behind the visiting dugout and I have a 17 total autographs on the baseball and these are the ones I know of for sure.

1. Pat Kelly
2. Buck Showalter
3. Phil Rizzuto
6. Rick Dempsey
7. Jim Leyritz
10. Kevin Mass
13. TonyHenrich
14. Andy Stankiewicz
15. Micky Rivers
17. Sam Horn

I will post some pictures later so anyone else can help me solve this mystery.

What are you doing Wachoiva

Two years ago Wachovia promoted their credit card with overdraft protection. In case you ever over drafted your account, the remaining money would be charged directly to your Wachovia credit card without any overdraft fees.

Today I receive a letter from Wachovia telling me what changes they will implement on June 1st, 2009.

Now they instituted an Overdraft Protection fee of $10.00 per instance. Can anyone please tell me why they need to apply this charge now? They would still receive money if a person didn't pay off their balance at the end of the month.

I don't understand how this cost the company $10.00 to electronically process the overdraft amount to their credit card department. Especially when it didn't cost the consumer anything for this protection for two years.

Shame on you Wachovia!

Boycott the new Yankee Stadium

I love the Yankees but this stadium has pushed me over the edge. The best seats in the house are priced for the worst people in our society and in baseball. Why can't management develop the stadium with both type of fans at heart.

Make the luxury suites up in the top levels. The people spending $2600 don't care about the game. They care about status. Put all high level tickets up in luxury boxes with TVs, kitchens, and bars. Have a current player go up to their suite after the game to say hello and sign some autographs. When you pay $2600 for a ticket you are helping that players receive their overpriced salary anyway. Oh I forgot about camera time. Make sure sometime during the broadcast you show the luxury suites with the people so they can feel important. Remember rich business executives, it always feels better looking down at people.

For the field level seats only allow kids 17 years old and under. They wont start any trouble, and they will enjoy the game ten times more than any adult. Also the players would want to go over and sign autographs more because they don't feel people are asking for their John Hancock for eBay.

My Yankee game of choice is the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Yankees. For $14 dollars a ticket I can get lower level seats right where the action is and watch a high quality baseball game. SWB Yankees all the way! oh by the way they are 11-0.

Yahoo - This is the layout I see. I'm running Firefox 3.0. The smack talk should not cover the last two scores like this.

A New Way to go Green... Mama Mary's Style

Last night my wife and I wanted to make a pizza. We purchased a "Mama Mary's" Crust from our local grocery store a couple of days prior and opened the package.

Below is the product I am referring to. Please take a good look at the "ENJOY BY" date.

Now let me show you some picture of what we saw when we opened up the package.

Needless to say we had to throw this out and come up with another dinner solution.

Rec-stache (Recession Mustache)

Its time to start a trend in these hard times in our economy. I call it the Rec-stache. People growing mustaches till we are out of this recession. Just like hockey players don't shave till their run in the playoffs are over we will do the same until our country is back on its feet. Not sure what the final rec-stache look would be, but right now its up to participates to supply us with a winner.

Let us hope this look will be in the short-term for all of us!!!

Please post your progress of growing your own rec-stache below.
