    If "a Christmas tree problem" is defined as "doesn't know how many there are," then FINE. I do indeed have a problem. I don't remember for certain how many Christmas trees I have to set up this year, but I do know that dedicating 30 minutes per day to getting them set up is going well. Alexis and I set up Tree #6 tonight. Tree #6 happened to be Alexis' tree. She has always had her very own Christmas tree in her room, filled with ornaments that are most definitely hers. Over the years, her ornament collection has slowly grown with souvenirs from adventures to far away places, memorabilia from…

    She happened to ask on the exact right day, so Alexis has an Instagram account. I had reserved her preferred user name months before without telling her, but then she went and acted all grown-up and responsible and stuff for weeks on end, so I figured I'd hand her something that could blow up in her face. Spoiler alert: it didn't. In fact, giving Alexis an Instagram account has turned out to be the BEST THING EVER OMG. The thing about Instagram is that the privacy settings are about as straight-forward as you can get. Plus, it's really very easy for me to control Alexis' universe. I can log…

    I read this in the Post-Gazette yesterday. Came to me as a total shock. The team must not have been making any $ or losing a lot of it. Too bad for the AFL in Pittsburgh. This is the second franchise the city has lost in Arena Football, the other being the Pittsburgh Gladiators. http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/o...s/201411170178 "By Craig Meyer / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The Pittsburgh Power, a member of the Arena Football League, announced Monday that it will cease operations after four seasons. The franchise was founded in 2010 after a partnership was struck by entrepreneur Matt Shaner…

    My vote: the 3 yard scramble for a first down by BR. Without that first down I doubt the Steelers regain any momentum and lose the game. The Steelers should have won this game by at least 17 points.
  • Kipper : Russell Martin Signs With The BlueJays... and The Internet Is Hurting My Head

    Unless you're stuck at work, without a phone or live in a cave, you know by now that the Toronto Bluejays signed Russell Martin to a 5 year contract worth $82 Million. Great deal for Russell Martin, bad deal for the Bluejays in the long run. That breaks down to $16.4 million per year. The Pittsburgh Pirates reportedly offered Russell Martin a 3 year contract worth $48 million. That breaks down to $16 million per year. I'm sure that the Pirates could've scraped up $400K if needed to match the dollar figures. This however was about years. The length of the contract. At 32 years of age, this is…
