Mile Marker

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: June 6, 2010

Mileage 2.5 Time 3:00 PM Location Outdoors Weather Rain The weather was a bit challenging this weekend at the lake. It rained much of Saturday and most of Sunday limiting our selection of outdoor activities. On Sunday I slept in until almost 10 ( I guess I needed it) and was actually the last one […]

Downers Grove Farmers Market 2010

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: May 22, 2010

I visited our local farmers market this morning and noticed it has grown to twice the size of last year. Although there are twice as many booths as last year there are not twice as many produce/farmers booths. It seems the village is allowing more and more non produce booths to be licensed alongside the […]

I’m Giving Up on AT&T and the iPhone

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: May 19, 2010

After many months of deliberation and research, I decided to get rid of my iPhone and go with an Android phone. The biggest reason for this decision was the fact that I cannot make a successful call from within my house on ATT. At one point I was dropping at least 5 calls a day, […]

More Facebook Privacy Concerns

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: May 18, 2010

Every week we seem to hear more about the crazy Facebook privacy (lack of) settings and how most people don’t bother to or know how to check them. I came across an interesting site today that shows just how open your posts can be on FaceBook, if you are not very careful with your settings. […]

How Did You Spend Your Saturday?

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: May 15, 2010

  My son had the weekend off which is very unusual for him. He had been wanting to take me to his favorite thrift store in Homewood so this was a perfect opportunity to do so. We usually go to the Salvation Army store in Downers Grove, but according to Matt, this particular store is […]

Changing A Pets Name

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: March 2, 2010

As I mentioned in my post last night, we adopted a new rescue pup and we want to change his name to make a clean break from his past into his life with us. By changing the dogs name, you are helping him leave his bad memories behind and are now associating his new name […]

A New Addition To The Family

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 28, 2010

We added another rescue pup to our family today. We have been looking for a compatible breed for over a month now and finally found what we believe will be a good match for Zeus. Zeus is our 4.5 year old Pug/Dachshund who seems to get along well with other Pugs, Puggles and Dachshunds when […]

Today I Feel LOST

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 11, 2010

This is totally awesome. I had no idea that the DHARMA initiative had taken up residence in Downers Grove. I was driving home today and saw that only about 100 yards from my house, there was parked a VW bus with the license plate DHARMA. Perhaps in season six, they are planning on introducing a […]

Skype Is The Best Thing Ever

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 3, 2010

If you are fortunate enough to travel frequently (or unfortunate depending on the length and destination) you may find your self missing out on events or just missing someone. With my schedule I often find myself missing special events that my kids participate in. Now I’m not just talking about missing one of Jenna volleyball […]

They Say It’s Your Birthday…….

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: January 28, 2010

Yesterday was Matt’s birthday and he had reserved a room over at a local restaurant/bar called the Brick House. I had not been there before and wonder where the name came from…until I walked in. Anyone familiar with the Commodores song from the 70’s will get where I am going with this. All the wait […]
