To Gift Card or Not?

Well the holiday season is upon us. Hopefully by now everyone has finished their Christmas shopping. If not you can always grab a gift card for that special someone. Gift cards are easy to get, you can pick up gift cards just about anywhere and for just about anything. You can get them at convenience stores like 7Eleven or any department store. Gift cards com in different values $5.00, $10.00, $25.00 etc… Or you can load them with any amount you like. You can also get Visa or Mastercard gift cards, where you can use them anywhere. Gift cards also let the receiver get the gift they want, no need to return the crappy gift you gave them the day after Christmas. And they are easier to ship to someone, all you have to do is put them in a card and mail them where ever you want. On the other hand gift cards do have their downfalls. Gift cards do expire, some have hidden fees. If you lose the card you are out of luck and lost the money. Gift cards are not always the most personal thing to give. Would you give your wife or partner a gift card for Christmas, it don’t really show that you care that much. What do you do with all the small amounts left on the gift cards? Just seems like...

Christmas Funnies

How come you never hear anything about the 10th reindeer “Olive” ? Olive ? Yeah, you know, “Olive the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names” Why are women’s breasts like a train set a kid gets at Christmas time? Because they were originally made for children but the father wants to play with them. Why doesn’t Santa have any children? Because he only comes once a year, and when he does, it’s down the chimney. Why is Christmas just like a day at the office? You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit. How are a Christmas tree and a priest alike? They both have ornamental balls. What do the female reindeer do when Santa takes the male reindeer out on Christmas Eve? They go into town, and blow a few bucks. What’s the difference between snowmen and snowladies? Snowballs. Why did the snowman have a smile on his face? Because the snowblower was coming down the block. As a little girl climbed on to Santa’s lap, Santa asked the usual, “And what would you like for Christmas?” The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped, “Didn’t you get my...

My new DVD Player

Recently I purchased a Philips DVD Player, it was the DVP-3960. I picked it up because it was cheap and it up converts video to 1080i. This DVD player has a lot of awesome features like: Plays DivX, MP3, WMA and JPEG digital camera photos 192kHz/24 bit audio DAC enhances analogue sound input HDMI 1080i with high definition video upscaling Progressive Scan component video for optimized image quality DivX Certified for standard playback of DivX videos 12-bit/108MHz video processing for sharp, natural images. What I like the most is the fact that it plays DivX files. I have a lot of movies backed up to DivX or Xvid formats. I can burn six movies to one DVD and watch them in the my new DVD player. Before I used to hook the laptop to the TV and watch movies that way. It is so much more convenient to load up a disk in the DVD player and be able to watch any of the six movies on the disk. Soon I will write a post on how to make 700mb backup copies of your own disk. It’s not all that hard. All in All I really like the new DVD player, the picture quality is awesome. And it’s great to be able to get all my movies of my computers and on to less...
