Nintendo Wii

Have you guys seen this thing? My wife and I have had it for a couple of months and we love it. We can't stop playing. We are both trying to lose some weight so we bought the Wii Fit. This game is out of this world. Not only does it have a bunch of great games that you can play and get fit with but it also weighs you everyday and measures your body's BMI. It is nuts. You should all check this thing out. For years, video game companies focused on graphics and how realistic the games could look. It is nice that a company has finally gotten all these gamers off their asses and worked on practicality rather than fattening up more Americans.

Post Pesach Update

So things have been going pretty well. I am surprised to report that over the first half of Pesach I actually still lost 2 pounds and I am still going. We had a great time in Florida and then Southfield, although the weather was less than desireable, but it is nice to be back to normal. I am hoping the Tigers will start winning more consistently and then all will be in order.

Weight Watchers

As many of you may know, about two and half weeks ago I decided I had to make a change in my life. I knew that my weight was an issue but I had never done anything serious about it and I had always joked about being a little heavier than others. Well, a little heavier became a lot heavier and unfortunately my weight got a little out of control. I was no longer happy about how I looked in pictures and my weight was starting to limit me in some of the things I could do. I decided to start weight watchers and after my second weigh-in I am now down about 13.6 pounds and counting. I will be giving weekly updates on my progress so that you guys can see how I am doing and encourage me to continue. Dieting is not easy but I know it is something I have to do. I hope to make you all proud, but more importantly, I hope to look and feel great in the end.

New Job

Hey all,
I am so excited to announce that I am starting a new job tomorrow. I will be working for a nationwide company that outsources technicians to fix dental equipment. As it stands now I am kind of running this company under the guidance of those who started it but we are hoping that the company will grow into a true prosperous organization like any other out there. I am very excited about it and I can't wait to tell you all how it goes.

Turkey Day

I have heard from some people around our community that they do not celebrate Thanksgiving. One person told me: "Thanksgiving is a Christian holiday and we shouldn't celebrate it". This really upset me. How can an American living in America not feel that Turkey Day is important? The holiday does not have any religious significance, it is a day to be thnakful for being an American and having a free country to live in.

I say now to all of you living in this fine land that if you can not find a way to be thankful today then get out of our country. Our ancestors fought for our freedom and fought for this land so that we could live good lives and be proud of who we are. If you don't feel that way then you are heartless and selfish. I realize that there is a certain Christmas aura around the day but it is still only Thanksgiving and we should acknowledge things that we are thankful for. Plus, it starts the biggest shopping time of the year with the best DEALS, and as Jews, that should trully be our biggest holiday of the year, j/k.

So, to all you Jews who really don't think they owe anybody a thank you or can't find something to be thankful for, be thankful to Hakadosh Baruch Hu that your ancestors survived the evil hand of the Natzi's - Yemach Shemam - and that The United States not only helped rescue them but welcomed them into this country with open arms and gave them hope and oppurtunity to live full and meaningful lives, giving us a chance at life and prosperity. I know that I am thankful for that, today and every other day of my life.


So Gillian and I got an eliptical a while back and I have to say it is such a pleasure to have it in the house. Many people toy with the idea of purchasing workout equipment because they fear it will become a clothing hanger or a bulky item that takes up a lot of space. I am proud both to say that we do use it and that we are actually enjoying it. I definitely reccomend that everyone get a piece of workout equipment at home. If you have the will to work out and get in shape then you will use the machine. It only takes a little bit of discipline for the first few weeks and then you get into a routine that works for you and you are on your way. So here's to working out and getting healthy and living life to its fullest.

Playstation 3 Problems

According to a news report on Channel 4 last night, many cities are seeing major problems with the new Playstation 3 systems. Many stores are reporting game glitches and countless customer complaints as well as many incidence of returns. I must admit I find this to be a bit humorous. How many people spent months saving up money and sacrificing so they could enjoy this new system to find out it was a bust?

The story was broken as a Detroit video game store on Gratiot was robbed yesterday right before closing. According to the store's employees, two men in ski masks came in with guns demanding the new Playstation consoles. The clerks informed the two men that they had none in the store and the men instead stole two xbox 360's and a bunch of games as well as the two register tills. The report also claimed the men stole the surveillance tapes as to not be found later by police. As a side note, I commented that perhaps it was the clerks who staged the robbery in order to each get a game console and some cash. It seemed a little strange that nobody else saw what happened.

The story was topped off by a comment by channel 4's reporter. The reporter commented that one of the clerks told him that the games were not even worth all that trouble because of all the problems being reported about them.

Check out this link below to read the story.
