Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS

I love my Garmin Nuvi!  It is simple, elegant, easy to use, helpful, and effective.  The roads in Seattle are laid out far differently from what I was used to in Texas, and this makes navigating them a breeze.  When we’re on trips, it finds us food quick & easy along our route.  No more…

Boycott Starbucks, Support Tully’s

Simply put, Starbucks charges for their wireless Internet access, Tully’s is completely free.  I’m not a big coffee drinker (my drink: grande soy mocha 1-shot decaf w/ whip) but I hear from my Seattlites that Tully’s coffee is better too.  If you’re not familiar with Tully’s, they are probably the #2 coffee chain in the…

What I’m Listening to: Santana

Carlos Santana’s music is simply awesome!  I’m addicted to these CDs.  Okay, I admit, I’m way behind in leading edge music, but seriously, if you haven’t checked out these albums, your missing out on some of the best music out there.  Santana’s old stuff is good for sure, but these collaborative albums are special.
