Iphone visual voicemail


So my wife mentioned she had issues with her iPhone voicemail's. A few people mentioned they had left voicemails but Katie never received the voicemail's. Turns out her voicemail had not worked for about a month! Any way after searching the internet figured out her issue and resolved the issue. Below is the solution


go to settings, general.
scroll down to see if you have something called, "profile".
if you do, click on it. then REMOVE IT!!!
then RESET NETWORK SETTINGS.

Craigslist is always entertaining


So was reading craigslist today and saw this post
" places to skinny dip (worcester)"




I guess it is a good place to ask the question but I would love to see the responses this person must receive. I had a few suggestions (The pond behind Moe's burrito, Lake Quinsigamond by Vinny T's cause who wouldn't want to someone naked while eating a pound of pasta and chicken parm)

If anyone is bored check out craigslist for laughs.

Mac mini microphone problem

So about a month ago I tried to use a microphone on my fairly new mac mini. I was trying to use Skype to make a call to South Africa. I was having issues and figured it was some weird issue with the microphone.
This week installed Rosetta Stone and had to use the microphone again. I tried three different microphones and had no luck. I called Apple support (day 89 of my 90 days of free call in support) and after about 20 minutes they told me I needed a "powered" microphone or use a USB microphone. Apparently it has something to do with my mac mini being Energy Star approved and not using extra power for the line input. Quite lame.
Luckily the Rosetta Stone came with a USB microphone.
Nothing quite interesting just wanted to vent

Happy Birthday to Me

Today I turned 29 years young. I received many birthday wishes mostly due to Facebook.
I even received one birthday wish from a famous hip-hop rapper /producer /author /fashionista Kanye West. I can't believe Kanye remembered my birthday! Something tells me Kanye sent over a pair of Air Yeezy's.

Food locations from "down south" roadtrip

I have compiled a list of favorite meals from recent trip down south. I think it speaks volume's the two most authentic non-fancy places (Ike's and Jestine's Kitchen) do not have websites.

Ike's Korner Grill
Spartanburg, South Carolina

I had a cheeseburger plate with fresh cut fries and a side of cole slaw, all washed down with a cup of sweet tea (sweetened ice tea for the non tea drinkers). Great start to the road trip with a semi-greasy lunch.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


From Peerless


Johnson City,Tennessee
Katie and I shared the fillet mignon for two with asparagus and potatoes on the side.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nashville, TN
Great BBQ I was quite impressed. I had the 3 combo plate including Tennessee Pork Shoulder, Texas Beef Brisket, and Smoked Chicken! Don't forget the great sides Mac & Cheese and Baked Beans.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


















Savannah, GA
Served the best refined meal of the trip. Garibaldi's is known for various seafood dishes. Katie and I started our dinner in Savannah with a mixed green salad combining granny smith apples, reduced vinaigrette, pecans, blue cheese crumbles, and topped with fabulous scallops.
For an entree I had the red snapper with risotto. Katie had her favorite linguini with clams.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


From Jestine's Kitchen

Jestine's Kitchen
Charleston, SC

Katie and I spent only a couple of hours of Charleston and I'm glad we waited in line to eat Jestine's Kitchen. Our meal began with an appetizer of fried green tomato's which I finished in about two minutes.
Katie had an interesting lunch combination consisting of a plate of fried chicken with a side of mac & cheese and watermelon. The waitress was a bit confused by the contrasting sides but Katie wanted her watermelon. I ordered the Cajun Creole.
I have to mention the lovely waitstaff again. As I was eating some of Katie's chicken in a nice southern accent a waitress told me "stop messing with that silverware and eat that chicken with your hands"

The highlight for me was dessert. I ordered a pecan pie that was the best I ever had. The pecans were minced and the crust delicious. Katie ordered a coconut cream pie. After that meal we left completely full and satisfied.

Funny Things from the Road Part 2



Funny stuff I have noticed on the drive from Nashville down to Atlanta.

  1. Firework stores! Ongoing theme throughout the south. Largest supermarket type stores biggest so far Tennessee-Alabama Fireworks.
  2. The Towing and Receiving hall of Fame and Museum. This place was near Rock City and I wanted to go inside. After looking at the website probably glad I didn't spend the $8 to go inside. I can imagine the 2009 induction ceremony giving an award to a Towing company that hires nice and friendly people (and women)!
  3. Side bar while at Rock City overheard this boy (6-9 year old) ask his mom if she could go squeeze through the rock walk way. Kids say the darndest things!
  4. Lions Den: Adult Fuel and Food superstore!
  5. The number of blown out tires in the driving lanes in Georgia (I-75 south). My count was around 8.

Funny things from the road Part 1



Today we drove from Myrtle Beach up to Greeneville TN. On the way Kat and I saw some interesting stuff on the road.

1. Tattoo parlor with a drive through booth
2. Sparky's offering BBQ, fireworks, hermit crabs, hot nuts (hehe nuts), and peaches
3. Over 50 signs for fireworks.
4. Bojangles, not the restaurant itself just sheer number of them in S.C. How much chicken and biscuits does one need?
5. My weird facial reactions (added by the wife)
6. Piggly Wiggly

EA Active Wii Fitness is a decent workout


I basically look like this chick but with facial hair and way more jacked up!

I just picked up the new EA Active for the Wii at Best Buy. As the name suggests you stay active playing this video game on the Wii. The game comes with a resistance band and leg strap. Great thing is the EA made the game compatible with the Wii balance board.
I just played for 30 minutes doing various exercises ranging from running, to lunging, to curls, and my favorite Tae Bo style boxing. I really enjoyed and hopefully can include it my regular workout schedule. First impressions is that the exercises included are more entertaining than Wii Fit. Will keep you posted on my status.

P.S. If you buy EA Active at Best Buy or Target by Saturday (May 23, 2009) one receives a $10 gift card.
KFC asked if I wanted light or dark meat. I replied "I am an equal opportunity type guys 1 of each please/'
hey

Wife is explaining why Oprah is awesome. I still feel weird ed out she made me watch Dr oz explain how to check out my junk for cancer

KFC Grilled chicken is delicious. Oprah is delicious as well


I just had the pleasure of enjoying a KFC grilled chicken meal on the house.  I first saw the post after lunch on dealnews. Now I hear citizens of these great United States are enjoying free chicken thanks to our leader Oprah Winfrey.


I went to the KFC in Auburn to get my grub. I was then questioned whether I watch Oprah. Politely responding that I don't watch Oprah but use the internet towards my advantage.

The grilled chicken was delicious and moist (so juicy that it's now on my sweater). The side of potato wedges was a  small portion but with two pieces of chicken I was more than satisfied. Now how do I get Oprah to pay for my dry-cleaning bill for the sweater?
Planning my safari trip. Other than malaria south africa sounds awesome
Yo, KFC giving free grilled chicken plus 2 sides. http://ping.fm/gyXmV

bike ride

Yesterday's weather was so nice that Katie and I decided to go for a bike ride. Since we planned on stopping over at my parents for dinner we decided to hit up the Lexington Bike trail.
I scrambled around my basement and found my pump in the most appropriate place behind the water heater? Any way I filled the tires and attached the bike rack (tow hitch setup) and we hit the road.

Upon entering the old towne of Lexington we parked and took the bikes down. Katie and I run into an issue, big issue! Katie's bike seat would not got down. After 5 minutes of struggling (no I was not weating a bike helmet , I can just imagine your mental images) to get the seat off I went to CVS and picked up WD-40. After oiling up the bike the seat was yanked off. Unfortunately the bottom of the seat post was partially bent. That prevented the seat from going down. The seat was so high Katie couldn't touch the ground and barely reach the pedals. So bike ride was squashed and we took a casual stroll.

Long journey and fairly long blog post for no bike ride. Could be worse at least Katie's bike still has wheels

Heart Attack Waiting to Happen

I just ate one of the most innovative lunches ever. I describe it as the heart attack waiting to happen. Muncheez present's: The Donut Burger.
Muncheez is really close to my house and until recently only thought of this establishment as regular pizza joint in Worcester. Things all changed when I saw a recent episode of the Phantom Gourmet. This episode featured Muncheez and the Donut Burger.

A sugar coated plain donut serves as the bread for the burger. Packed inside is a burger, bacon, cheese, and onion rings. Yeah you read that correctly!
The donut was warm and sweet simply spectacular. Unlike most buns the donut didn't fall apart.
The actual burger tasted good but to tell you the truth I think the bacon spoiled it for me. I know that is sacrilege as bacon always makes food taste better. I don't know if it was the contrasting salt and sugar but just thought it was better without. Perhaps if was maple flavored bacon it could have enhanced the burger. Any way one of the most interesting lunches I have ever had!

Not religious

I just read a small article on boston.com ranking states on religious practices. As expected New England is the least religious. While the deep south are religious. Seeing the numbers made me laugh. By the way I don't consider myself religious. For more comedy read the comments. Thrilling internet debate.
