If NFL Players Were Watchmakers

So here is something that is just lots of fun! Pass it along and feel free to let the world know what it would be like If NFL Players Did Your Job.

Protecting Your Most Valuable Set of Tools

Last week, Tuesday marked the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The equator of the Earth was at it’s maximum tilt around mid-day, offering up the longest duration of (much welcome) daylight hours that are possible in a day between sunrise and sunset. With the warmer weather comes more time spent outside […]

Pi Day

I guess it isn’t really watch related, and certainly not watchmaking related, but it is related to time. Besides being Einstein’s birthday, today is Pi day. And the minute this was posted was pi minute. There is even a pi second. To learn more about pi day check out the wikipedia article for pi day. […]

Lego Watches

If you are like me you enjoy watches. Of course you do, you’re reading this blog. But did you (or do you still) love LEGOs also? I did. Here are some great watch related Lego things to check out: LEGO watches for adults and children, clocks too! If you are thinking of buying one for […]

Jailbroke my iPod

So, I love my iPod Touch and I recently decided (due to Apple’s unfriendly rules that came with the SDK released) that I would Jailbreak it. For those of you who don’t know this means: you unlock the Operating System to allow you to run 3rd party applications. There are some great applications out there […]

Blu-Ray wins

I am a watchmaker “in a digital world.” I’m sure if you care you’ve heard already but Toshiba has decided not to continue pursuing the HD-DVD technology forfeiting the technology race to Sony and their Blu-Ray technology. So why did Sony win so fast when they fared so poorly in the 1980s VHS vs. BETA […]

Super Tuesday

I know it’s not the weekend, but I can’t resist this opportunity to comment mid-week on a non-watch related topic. Here in New Mexico voter turnout for the democratic caucus was high today. It was the first ever caucus in New Mexico and polls were open from noon to 7pm. In Rio-Rancho some voters waited […]

A tribute to Gordon B. Hickley

I lost a good friend last Sunday, that I had never met. Gordon B. Hinkley, president & prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints passed away last Sunday. Although I never met GBH in person I have heard him speak countless times and read so many of his writings, speeches, sermons, & […]

Economic Stimulus

So, this is about the millionth blog post on the topic but I just wanted to throw in my $.02. The government is talking about sending me an $1800 check. $600 for me $600 for my wife and $300 for each of my two children. I think it is a great idea! We’ll probably use […]

Musing about Politics

The media is always telling me who is voting for who, what the polls say and who might win. I want to know about the issues! I sat down and watched the republican debate(SC). Only person who impressed me was Ron Paul. He caught me by surprise, I was beginning to wonder if I was […]
