my shiny new digs!! please add, circle, follow, etc, etc. so we can keep in touch & continue sharing all the cool plusser-stuff as we've done in the past. despite being sick lately and hating that my body won't just finish already, and having a sick little one over to the hospital to be checked over, i still wanna keep up with all the kickass folks in plus-land! this new profile is attached to a new domain i snapped up, giving me a fun new Google Apps acct to play with. i'll be posting on both sporadically, but eventually will move to the new spot permanently.  :) see you guys over there.

Apple has a long and tortured history when it comes to the development of its own TV offering. But now, it seems Apple may be trying once more to build its own small-screen provision.

Bragging rights
I had the immense opportunity & privilege of living in Europe for nearly a year from Summer 2001 to Spring 2002! Spent most of my time living & working in the Zurich area of Switzerland, but also spent about a month living in downtown Hamburg, Germany. I miss Europe immensely & dream of the day I might be able to return! I now have 2 totally cute daughters who daily try my patience, a wife that always takes care of me, & a great job here in LA to be thankful for. Also, if anyone needs a computer fixed, tuned, recovered, etc, I'm your guy! :)

excellent, fast, courteous, professional service. had never been there so took a chance since I was selling a car and really needed the extra care you get when they hand wash. I was not disappointed. highly recommend this location, and the staff. on top of the usual circumstances, I arrived just before closing time on a Sunday afternoon, yet the work didn't show any rushing or shoddy quality. I paid $30 for the deluxe wash to get inside and out done well, along with wax. I even had a bunch of shredded packing peanuts in the trunk and they took care of those no problem despite likely being an irritating mess. highly recommend these guys, as well as the courteous gal behind the counter. bravo.

Absolutely amazing place! It's a little English/Irish themed pub that doubles as both a bar, & then as a club later in the evenings on weekends. I'm an American guy & I was an aupair here in the Zurich area for a while. I spent many a night here with groups of friends when I lived in the Zurich area. If you are looking for a place that's a good mix of both locals, aupairs, exchange students, english/irish folks, and generally a melting pot of lots of nationalities, with a great mix of music, with the typical high Swiss prices, look no further! It's free, but it does get packed! No particular type of dress style rejected, unless that's changed since I was there in 2002. There's very much a "everyone's welcome" type of attitude here & you will find all ages. They play all the latest hits & move successfully across many music genre's. One favorite I was surprised to hear in the beginning, when I first started going there, was a techno version of "Country Road, Take Me Home". Just blew my mind, but the locals ate it up! Don't even remember how many times I visited this place, but it was basically the de-facto stop whenever we were in Zurich on Friday & Sautrday nite! It's a short walk straight down from the Hauptbahnhof, down Bahnhofstrasse & then left on Beatengasse. Plan to stop in around 10pm if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night, when the chairs are removed & it turns clubbish. Otherwise, it's your typical Irish pub of an evening, with folks crowding in on Tuesdays for the football (soccer) matches! Absolute MUST-VISIT!!

I lived in the Baden area for around 7 months back in the fall of 2001 through the spring of 2002, and myself and the rest of the group I spent time with, made a habit of getting together every Tuesday night to have a couple drinks, play Foosball, watch the local expats watch football, and watch some ourselves. It was always an overwhelmingly enjoyable time. There was always a good lively bunch of people and now, living back in the US, I honestly miss it terribly! I did visit a couple of the other locations in the chain, but the Baden pub will always hold a very dear place in my heart! HIGHLY recommend it to all who visit the area!
