Hello, Apple fans. What is there to talk about? First off, Happy Veteran’s Day! Thanks to all that served in the Armed Forces, and special thanks to my father who served 20+ years in the Army to support me and my family.
Well, it’s well into Fall, the leaves are red and orange, and the weather is getting colder and colder each day. Football is in full-swing and Thanksgiving is just a mere two weeks away.
I must admit, this time of year holds a special place in my heart. We all know the feeling. The smell of turkey all day, watching the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys play, its bliss. And as a kid, knowing that Christmas is just a month away seals the deal. To put it simply, I just can’t wait for Thanksgiving this year. Amazingly enough, this year my son turns two on Thanksgiving day. Even more to be thankful about.
While we’re on the subject of Thanksgiving, lets talk about the food real quick. Each American family has its own food traditions around this time of year, mostly revolving around turkey, of course. Some people bake it, some people deep fry it, and some people smoke it. Me, I’m a fan of the good ole’ fashioned baking. And then there is the stuffing…or is it dressing? Whatever, its always a crowd pleaser. Now I must confess, I never ate a Honey Baked Ham until two years ago. My wife and I were married for only a year and we celebrated the holiday at my in-law’s house. Much to my dismay, there was no turkey, just Honey Baked Ham. On the verge of sheer and utter disappointment, I gave the ham a try. I can’t put in words how great that tasted. Needless to say, Honey Baked Ham on Thanksgiving is going to be a tradition carried on in my household for years to come. But that begs the question, what do you do or where do YOU go for Thanksgiving?
Being newly weds, my wife and I were faced with quite the quandary. What will we do for Thanksgiving? We were faced with just a couple options when it came to Thanksgiving. We could either A) Go to one of our parent’s houses for dinner, or B) Go the bolder route and start our own Thanksgiving traditions and invite the in-laws and families to our very own house. Well, my wife and I chose option B last year and we are sticking with it this year. What will the family expect this year at my house? A turkey, a Honey Baked Ham, all the stuffing you can eat, rice, pecan pie….the list goes on and on and on…
…Wow, you can tell how much I love this holiday. Let’s talk Apple for a minute. We are seeing more and more iPhones coming in as we are gearing up for the busy holiday season. As much as we all love our iPhones, they break rather easily. Just one drop can wreak havoc on your iPhone 4. I remember the old days where I could chuck my Nokia across the room and down the stairs and the thing would come out with a scratch or two, nothing serious. If harm should befall your iOS device or any other Apple device, check us out. Read our reviews at Google or at Reseller Ratings.

Oh, and I can’t leave this blog post without mentioning my beloved Chiefs. Still holding the number one spot in the AFC West is nice, but not when you have the Oakland Raiders knocking at your door with 3 division wins and one against us. Halfway through the season, my expectations as a Chiefs fan has been exceeded. The mere talk of the possibility of getting into the playoffs would have been heresy a year ago. Let’s hope we can eek one out this weekend against the struggling Broncos at Mile High. And lets hope Dexter McCluster makes a triumphant return.
Happy Veterans Day
