Making My Car Happy

Well I finally treated my car to some updates. It got an oil change and a 60,000 mile check up. It wasn’t the cheapest but I took it to Precision Tune Auto Care and I feel they did a great job. No major issues either! After that I took it to the car wash to […]

Technorati Tags

Reviews: Open Water and the Village

Review: PilotMouse Optical Wireless

I got my PilotMouse Optical Wireless just before Christmas and I was all excited. I got it at BestBuy and it was good deal. I really wanted a Logitech mouse, however I was looking at features and price. I wanted to spend under $30 and get wireless and optical. The more buttons the better too. […]
