Protect your iPhone

iphoneWhen the most recent iPhone 3Gs was released I had to take a look at the new speed and find out if it was worth upgrading my current iPhone. After playing with the device I was sure that this was my next phone. I am not usually one to jump on the technology that has been just released but I must say the features and ease of use of this phone is incredible. My other question was since this is supposed to be internet friendly and we are able to watch YouTube videos how much extra were the services going to be. Luckily they have thought this part through and the iPhone has it’s own plans with unlimited web and email. The plans are comparable to their standard plans with just a few less minutes. But with their roll over minutes and the fact that everyone who I call that is on the AT&T network don’t count towards my minutes this make for a great buy.
I was even considering iPhone Insurance because I know several friends that have ended the life of their new iPhone through the washer, or their kids dropping them while they were playing a game. My iPhone has become such an integral part of my social networking and blogging that I need to know that I can have additional protection against damage not usually covered by Apple Care. I found a great product comparison of various insurance options that you can purchase to protect your iPhone from spills,drops, and theft. Because of the popularity of the iPhone they have become a prime target of tech thieves that grab these high tech gadgets and then resell them on the grey market. With companies like the Worth Ave Group that also offer Laptop Insurance you can protect your iPhone. With a small deductible and a yearly cost starting at $63 you can insure your iPhone that will provide coverage that not many other companies are willing to provide. Here is an example of the typical cost to insure your iPhone:

$55 for 8GB
$63 for 16GB
$69 for 16GB 3GS
$79 for 32GB 3GS

These are yearly insurance costs with a $50 deductible. And yes they cover theft, spills, fire, and vandalism. So take a look at their options for your high tech gear to give you a piece of mind.

Bring back the celebrity boxing

boxingWe have seen season after season of the Dancing with the Stars and the various current and old celebrities that bring on the show. How about bringing back the Celebrity boxing? One of the first matches I remember seeing was Vanilla Ice going against Todd Bridges that played Willis Jackson, the older brother to Gary Coleman (Arnold Jackson) on the long running series called Different Strokes. Willis did what we thought a big brother should do and you always thought of him as tough; when you saw him on Different Strokes.

This wasn’t true for Barry Williams that played Greg Brady on the Brady Bunch. Greg was the oldest of 6 children on the show and you always thought of him as the person that would take care of his brothers and sisters. There were many celebrity baby names that came out of that show. The little red headed kid from the Partridge Family beat the brakes off of Greg Brady and made him look weak. Danny Bonaduce knocked Barry Williams down 5 times and finally the towel was thrown in and Danny from the Partridge Family was the winner. I would never watch the Brady Bunch in the same fashion again, after I saw this fight in Celebrity boxing.

The night would end with Tonya Harding beating up Paula Jones who was the former lover of Bill Clinton. Amy Fisher or the Long Island Lolita was suppose to have been Tonya’s opponent, but Paula Jones had to be a last minute fill-in, since Amy Fisher couldn’t travel out of state.

The 2nd episode of Celebrity boxing wasn’t that great, but we did get to see Manute Bol who was 7 feet and 7 inches tall going against one very large man in the belly department in William “the Refrigerator” Perry. Most thought the NFL player would win this boxing match easily, but it turned out the long reach of Manute Bol was the difference and he won the fight easily. I would like to see these  Celebrity boxing match ups brought back as they seem to  draw a lot of talk around the water cooler the next day at work.

Costumes and carving pumpkins

I know it’s a little early to start talking about pumpkins and Halloween costumes, but the urge hit me today so thought I would put some thoughts down. The other is reason is that I was looking through website and noticed the Plus size costume that they offered. As much as I love Halloween and all the things associated with it, like getting candy, dressing up in costumes, and watching scary movies on TV, I have never carved a pumpkin before. I’m not a good artist, so I know my jack-o-lantern would not turn out good, but would still like to do it one day. I would need some pumpkin carving tips, because I wouldn’t know where to start.

I know the kids would have a good time carving up a pumpkin for Halloween. This can be a great family activity that everyone would have a good time doing and really pumpkins don’t cost that much. A cheap pumpkin would be just fine for the younger folks. You can dress up like a pumpkin and find Halloween Costumes | Plus Size Costumes | Childrens Costumes at this unique online halloween costume shop.

Do you plan to carve out a pumpkin for this year? We don’t get a lot of trick-or-treaters at my house, but the people that live in neighborhoods, should have a carved-out pumpkin sitting on the porch with a candle inside. As the flame twinkles up and down in the Halloween night, it seems the fire gives life to these pumpkins. If you don’t put a candle in your pumpkin; then it does take away from the personality of your pumpkin. If your going to take the time to carve-in a nice design, you might as well throw a candle inside to give it that finishing touch.
