Starting a new blog

Filed under: entertainment, Websites, Life in General — Mike @ 8:01 am

Last year, I registered several domain names with the hopes of using them to build new websites. I had some good ideas but lacked the momentum needed to get the projects started.

Moe’s and JDRF

Filed under: Clown, Life in General, Friends — Mike @ 9:08 am

Once again, the Moe’s Southwest Grill locations in¬†Northern Virginia will be supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by offering a FREE Burrito with the purchase of a drink on Friday, April 29th from 5:00-9:00pm.

Last year, I was contacted by a local resident about doing balloons at Moe’s during the event for JDRF. That night, I did balloons with a friend at the South Riding location while two other friends did balloons at the Westfield’s/Chantilly location. They liked it so much that this year they asked if I could help recruit friends for all of the Northern Virginia locations. Once again, I will be at the South Riding location, and my friends will be working the other locations.

So, if you are hungry for dinner on Friday, April 29th, stop by your local Moe’s location and enjoy a burrito and know that you are supporting JDRF.

Let me begin by saying that the CD player in my car has a tendency to skip tracks. Sometimes there is a pause and sometimes it just jumps to the next track. Second, my CD player can only play a track from the beginning. It doesn’t have the ability to jump forward or backwards¬†a few seconds. (more…)
