The search for missing Orlando mom Michelle Parker

There are some interesting things happening in Orlando. A search is currently going on for a missing mother of three from Orlando. Michelle Parker has been missing more than two weeks now. She’s 33. She disappeared after dropping her kids off to ex-fiance Dale Smith’s house. That same day, an episode of ‘The People’s Court’ aired regarding a dispute they had over a...

Brighthouse iPad app hits the iTunes store

(11/4/11) Update: I just downloaded the app for a test drive. It was a small pain to track down my account number, set up an account online and register – but it was pretty quick. But I must say, the picture quality is great! Smooth scrolling channels are much better than the rigid delay you get on the TV from the cable box. The only downfall was waiting for some channels to load and there...

iPhone 4 Screen Flickers

iPhone screen flickering? Give this a shot I’ve had my iPhone 4 (work phone) about a year now. And just a few days ago I noticed I had a case of the iPhone 4 screen flickers. It’s a bit lighter and you can see lines like you would if you looked very closely to a TV set. I’ve added an image, but that doesn’t add anything because the flicker doesn’t affect it. So my...

Mastering the Golf Ball Snow Globe

It took about an hour, but I mastered the Golf Ball Snow Globe.  And that’s a big deal to me because this could have been a colossal time-waster. So I wanted to make quick work of it. I was told it could take days, months even – to master the Golf Globe. Because if you’re too aggressive, you won’t get the ball to sit on the tee. Brainless exercise? Perhaps. But an exercise...

Mount Dora Craft Fair

It’s event season in Central Florida. Channel 9 is out and about at some of the local fairs and celebrations chatting with viewers and giving away some trips. Today’s stop was in Mount Dora – a neat little town northwest of Orlando. This is the 27th year of Mount Dora Craft Fair that attracts 325,000 people and 350 ‘crafters’ from around the country. The weather was...

Rough and Rougher

I lived in Tucson, Arizona for five years. The golf courses were absolutely amazing. They were extremely manicured, cut perfectly out of the desert with bright green grass. It was a amazing they could get something so pretty to grow on hot rocks. However they do it, it was a treat to play some of the nicer courses. But to play a ‘desert course’ is to be in for some surprises. There...

Laboring this Labor Day

What is is like to have Labor Day off? I can’t say I’ve ever had it off. Television news never sleeps, and for that reason – I’ve worked the last 10 labor days as far as I can remember. I can’t say I mind. The days are quiet, people are happy and things get done in a quiet, controlled atmosphere.  The roads aren’t busy. And I can use a day off some other time...

The $1,000 iPhone 4

I’ve done it again. These things don’t grow on trees, ya know. But I still manage to fling them around like a nasty apple with a wormhole and a nice, fat bruise on it. I dropped my iPhone 4 again. This is the second time. The first time was in my kitchen. Tile. I did the smash and dash around the apartment cursing myself to no end. Why was I so stupid?! Be gentle. Be gingerly. But I...
