I haven't been to a bar in like a month! The Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout on Nitro is the perfect beer to get the party started! #roxanneslounge

Clyde has been kicking my ass in the trash can game for the past 3 to 4 years. A few weeks ago I came up with the Clyde proof trashcan. Today I left him alone for a few hours and he tried to defeat me. He didn't and I win. Now I have to figure out what to do about the trash bag because there are pieces of it all over the floor LOL (Bonnie wants no part of this game she just wants to play frisbee at the park)

At first when these guys came to the door smelling like weed I was a little concerned but they got the job done and they were cool. Home Depot's Stoner Appliance Moving Service gets 5 stars!

Clyde is ready for his service dog certificate. He has mastered the art of grabbing my neck brace for me:)

Today I am starting to tackle the garage. It is a long overdue task and stresses me out! Andres came over and turned my shelves into custom tool bins. Wow I can actually see what tools I have!

We've been watching the green beans grow for a couple of months. Today I picked my first handful and Ab is putting them in our salad for tonight:)

Today when I wasn't paying attention Clyde took down the trashcan again and put trash all over the floor. What he didn't know is I have plumbers tape, bungee cords and self tapping screws there's no way he's going to get into this thing anymore it's Clyde proof:)

I have pretty exciting news to report about the west wing of the garden. The corn is gigantic and awesome looking and it looks like corn is actually growing finally. The flowers on the passion fruit trees are pretty and the fruit is getting pretty big

Got the stairs built the right way to go up in the upper part of my garage. It's a great improvement and even the dogs like it

That sucks! I saw something similar happen in another city and people were collecting the water with buckets to water their lawns. LOL.

Just got an epidural shot in my neck. The machine behind me is the X-ray machine and it shows the shadow of the needle under my sweet neck hardware. Hope this makes all the pain go away! Wish me luck:)

The AT&T store of the future in Huntington Beach, CA
www.techi.com

I was invited down to the AT&T store in Huntington Beach to check out their new interactive store of the future. This is the second store of

I really thought that I had found a new home when we researched Family Health Care of Long Beach. It has been a few years since I had a General Practice doctor and it was time for a physical. My wife found that her insurance covered a free physical at Family Health Care of Long Beach. She went down there and had a good experience so I made an appointment to do the same. Out of the gate I was a little confused that I got a physical scheduled on two separate days. This is the first time in 47 years that I have encountered this set up and I just had a bad feeling about it. I voiced my concern to the office staff and I was assured that there would not be any billing problems. I was also given a handout that specified the free annual physical which is pretty standard since I have been going to the doctor since the seventies. I have had miscommunication issues in the past with medical companies and their billing departments so if it is not an emergency I always ask for as much info as possible to avoid what happened to me with Family Health Care of Long Beach. The wording is really strange on there but I just told them I want a basic physical. On April 8th I went in, reviewed my medical history and then got my slip to go to the lab. This was the intro meeting and was pretty short. The next day on April 9th I met with another doctor and we basically did the exact same thing. He was kind of puzzled as why I would see two different doctors back to back on a Wednesday and a Thursday but he went along with it. If I was told that I was going to get charged for an extra visit when I walked in that day I would have declined since everything was done the day before. So I am feeling good I got my test results and everything is fine and I get a bill for the second visit. I call the billing department and they said that I do not have to pay for physicals and not to worry about the bill. Bills are the kind of thing that really stress you out when you are in constant pain all the time and you are on long term disability and unable to work due to a complication with a past surgery. A month goes by and I get another bill. This time it is different and they are billing me for both visits and not counting either of them as a physical. I call back again and I was told not to worry and it will get straightened out. I requested to talk to a supervisor at the billing department and I also requested to have the office manager call me so I can talk to somebody with some authority that can put a stop to this. My neck is in a knot as I write this review. Shame on this doctors office and its billing department!

Michael's on Naples is doing something relatively new and it is called Meatballs. Music. Manhattans. This happens on one Monday of each month. This particular event was the 2nd one and to me it looks like the event is getting some nice traction. I arrived at about 8 PM which was perfect because the dinner rush was over and I like it when it's not super crowded. The level of service at Michael's on Naples is amazing! I have been here a few times and it is very common for the General Manager or even the owner himself to walk up and chat with you about what you are eating or drinking and why they put it on the menu. I had a good conversation with Kevin Lanctot about the food portion of the event and then Kevin Chisam broke down the cocktails for me. I started off with the Belve-buck which ended up being my favorite drink of the night and then I had 3 variations of the Manhattan which were all good as well. For food, I tried a variety of meatballs, arugula and a few other things on the menu and a few things stood out for me. I was a big fan of the beef, veal and pork meatballs and I also liked the Belve-buck a lot because it had a nice ginger flavor to it. Check out their website for upcoming dates and if you have not been to this event before, I highly recommend it because it is a different and fun way to spend your Monday night:)

The chowder barge is a floating barge in Wilmington and I brought my wife down here for a little breakfast. My original plan was to come down for some chowder but since it was still early, we both went with eggs Benedict with hash browns and lots of hollandaise sauce The Chowder Barge is off the beaten path a beat and is in the small marina. They seem to have ample parking and I have never had a problem finding a spot. As you walk into the restaurant, you see all sorts of cool decorations. There is a bar off to the left that sits about 12 people and then the dining area is off to the right. Everything is super old school here and the people that work here are great!

This was my first time in Danville and I decided to come here to watch the game and grab some food with a coworker of mine. The downtown area of Danville is amazing and has a small town feel which is quite different than Long Beach. They had a really nice patio outside and two dining areas inside. The section off to the right had a nice bar and we ate at the section to the left. There were tv's around so we were able to catch the basketball game. We had the Firehouse Smoked Wings and Beef BBQ Nachos. Here are the complete descriptions. Firehouse Smoked Wings $10.50 Choice of Spicy Garlic, teriyaki, Sweet BBQ, Spicy BBQ (with a kick), Buffalo, or Wicked Hot. Served with Ranch or Blue Cheese. BBQ Nachos (Beef, Chicken, or Pork) $11.95 This appetizer is made to be eaten with a fork and spoon. Corn tortilla chips topped with chopped smoked brisket or pulled pork, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, jalapenos, red onions, black olives, and topped with cheddar cheese sauce. For the main course we both had 50-50 Burgers. I had a salad with ranch with mine and they were awesome. Here is a what was in the Burgers. 50/50 Burger $12.95 A mix of grilled Angus beef and chopped bacon. Topped with caramelized onions and Chipotle aioli. Choice of cheese for $1.50 Stefanie was an awesome server and I highly recommend get sat in her section:)

So I just got inspired to start tanning and after sitting in the backyard with very little results I figured there had to be a better way to get this done and I started researching tanning salons in Long Beach. I can't remember the last time that I was actually in a tanning salon my guess would be the late 80's or early 90's and what I remember from that experience was that is very expensive. After researching club tan I was able to find out that the prices were good and there is a lot of good reviews about the establishment and the owner who's name is Freddy. I popped on down there and told him that I was a newbie and what I was looking to do and he hooked me up with the discounted monthly package. Hey mixed some of his free sample lotions and explained the basics of what they do and I headed to room one and lotion-ed myself up and hopped into the tanning bed. I did not lie in one spot because I want to mix it up so I spend half the time on my back and half on my stomach. My arms and bald head are tan from just being out in the sun and stuff all the time but my unexposed areas (basically the rest of my body) where pretty white. Freddy recommended that I hop in there for 8 minutes vs the full 11 minutes and that should get me a little pink but not burned. I hopped out and was satisfied with my pink looking skin and told Freddy that he nailed it. I told him I wanted to come back the next day and go for another session and he said I should be able to do it but if I wanted to skip it that would be ok as well. I did end up going back in on Saturday for another 8 minutes and then took Sunday off because he is closed Sundays. On Monday I came back and did it again but this time I ramped it up to the full 11 minutes. I took a break on Tuesday and came back in on Wednesday and after my fourth session I noticed that I was no longer pink and I was actually getting a nice tan base coat. I'm about a week and a half into my four week tanning package and I couldn't be happier. The prices are great and Freddy is really cool. The beds are clean and he has that place running like a top. If you ask, Freddy will talk your ears off about tanning. He is a self proclaimed chatty person but he is engaged in the conversation so if you need to move on down the road he will pick up on that long before you have to excuse yourself. Most chatty people do not possess this skill and that includes myself LOL! If you just want to come in and tan and get out all you have to do is say hi, sign in and Freddy will show you to a bed. This is kind of close to downtown Long Beach and parking is always a problem in downtown. That is not the case here at Club Tan. There are parking spots out in front of the salon and there is a side street that also has parking. I have not had a problem yet and I have always had 3 places to park which is fabulous. The days of me laying out in the sun waiting for a tan to happen are over. I pop in here for 11 minutes and it is a 10 minute drive so I can get down there and back in a half hour which is a great use of my time.

My wife took my car out to go run some errands and texted me and told me that my left headlight was out. She caught it because she saw the reflection in a store window. What a smartypants lol! Who knows how long I have been running around like this but it was time to get it fixed. I tried to do it myself but couldn't figure out how to get down in there to pull out the bulb. This morning at about 8am I found K.J. Lee’s Automotive and I talked with Daniel. I told him that I wanted to get the bulb replaced and I figured that it was probably time for a oil change as well so I asked for a quote and a timeframe. He said it would be around $50 for both and that it would take under an hour if I came this morning. I grabbed my puppy Clyde and figured that I could take him for a walk around the hood while we were getting the car fixed. I met Daniel and he was just as cool as he sounded on the phone. He verified what needed to be done and said it would be fixed in 45 minutes. I walked in a big square down to Long Beach Blvd and basically the whole way around St. Mary's hospital. I got Clyde to take some fun pictures and was in no hurry. I got back at the 40 minute mark and they were pulling my car out for me. Daniel got the final invoice done and it was literally 45 minutes as he estimated. Wow I love this place. Super legit!

It was lunchtime and I had a hankering for a low-carb six dollar burger. This is my local Carl's Jr. and I've been coming here for about six years. I've never had any real problems here the services always pretty good so they are consistent for sure. There were about five cars out front in the drive-through so I decided to come in and dine inside for lunch today. Typically I hang back and go through the drive through but every now and then you can get served much faster by walking inside and going with the dine in option which is what I did today. My low-carb six dollar burger came out in a reasonable about period if time and as usual it was very tasty. They served it up quickly and man do I love those Six Dollar Burgers!
