Hurricane Ike in PA

Hurricane Ike was felt as far north as Erie, PA last night as winds of 40-60 MPH buffeted the house so hard it sounded like it was hailing (it may have actually been small berries and things being ripped from trees). Except for some brief power outages that prevented me from seeing the only TD […]

Last night I played my first hockey game of the season, and my team's second. Last year we got off to a slow start, built as a team, and finished second in the league to a team that, this season, is playing in a better league. We had a spirited rivalry with another team, the […]

Hulu Fall Premieres

Some fall premieres are available early (today marks the end of week two) at Hulu. Having missed some of the "on-TV" season premieres, I've caught up by watching Terminator as well as a new show called "Fringe." The latter struck me as a bit of an updated X-Files or something - I plan to set […]

iPhone 2.1 Update

Hopefully the 2.1 iPhone OS update will put an end to these: I've also gotten repeated "Done/Retry" errors when trying to run the update(s) on the iPhone itself with the "AppStore" application. So far, so good with the update, but all apps are "up to date" now, so who knows.

Whispering Woods (reviewed here) still doesn't have a blog or a means of updating the masses, so I've somewhat taken it upon myself to occasionally write about the goings-on in an attempt to educate the members and to perhaps inform the general public. In previous posts about the driving range, I've been hopeful that it […]

Bumpy on a Golf Cart

On my recent FAM trip to the Turning Stone Resort, I was happy to have the company of my father-in-law, Stan. He's better known as "Bump" or "Bumpy" around these parts, though.

BioChart for iPhone

The first Cynical Peak iPhone (and iPod Touch) app: BioChart. $1.99. A bit of a test, but for under two bucks, hey, enjoy.

MIA: Golf Game

If anyone's seen it, please return for a reward. In truth, I'm golfed out. I split my left thumb open and now I'm compensating for it by gripping it harder and lower on the thumb, which is now blistered. Great game! 😛 Tonight I'm off to Turning Stone for… more golf. I'm so close to […]

Weather: it never quite does what you want, does it? Today's Newport Cup round in the afternoon will be played at Lake View. Fog (and rain) at Peek 'n Peak have warranted that. Joy.

Newport Cup 2K8

Kicks off today at Thunder Hill. Weather for the week? Looks horrible. Not sure why I'm the only one wearing sunglasses. I must not have gotten the memo! Also, this may have been the first time I've ever used the timer feature on my Canon 5D.

I reported a bug to Adriaan of ecto, which helped me to confirm that there's really no bug in ecto, but rather more likely in WordPress. The bug - or at the very least change in behavior - has to do with the manner in which the <--more--> tag is applied when submitting posts via […]

Charlie Wilson’s War

I wasn't aware of the fact that Charlie Wilson's War was an Aaron Sorkin deal until earlier today, and I've just finished watching it. Good stuff, though I don't think it did very well at the box office… What's Sorkin working on next? I saw that he was on Facebook (and in the news for […]

Pressure Washed the Deck

I got the pressure washer out today with the intent to clean the deck. I've seen treated lumber, and it looks kind of greenish, so I thought I'd wet it, spray on the cleaning solution, and spray it off. I "accidentally" chose the highest pressure nozzle, which made a bunch of squiggly lines all across […]
