Recently, I was prescribed Acthar for proteinuria, a condition where there is an excess amount of protein found in my urine. Acthar is a hormone that is used to treat many different conditions and is now the third medication I am on as prednisone and mycophenolate were not correcting the issue. Prednisone, of which I am NOT […]

Today is the last day of my 30 day challenge to write more. This was definitely a fun exercise that I would like to do again in the future. Overall, I’d have to say that finding the time to write has been the most challenging. Fortunately I have a lengthy commute so that allows for some extra […]
Watches are great. There are so many different styles to choose from, each with different types of movement. Over the past few years I have amassed a nice collection that will hopefully continue to grow. Speaking of movement, there are two main types of watch movements that power watches. One is quartz and the other […]
I, as I’m sure many of you reading this, have many electronic items that are used on a daily basis. The challenge here is transporting all of them when commuting and worrying about keeping them charged long enough to use them. A while ago I purchased a portable charger which was great for powering up […]
Yes, another item to add to my want list (it seems that I want a lot of things, doesn’t it?). Today’s item is an uncommon instrument called the Chapman Stick. The Chapman Stick, or stick, is a guitar / bass hybrid that is played solely with ones fingers. There are a few different models available, […]
Since I’m nearing the completion this month’s 30 day challenge, I’m looking to start a new one next month. This time I’d like to exercise more so I recently I cleaned off the treadmill and ran a few times. I used to run track in high school and loved doing cardio when I exercised more […]
Another item to add to the want list of life. A rainwater collection system. Living in New York, we water our lawns every other day, when there isn’t a drought, to preserve our water supply. Having a system like this would allow me to water my lawn every day since I wouldn’t be using any […]
Last night my amazing wife and I saw U2 at Madison Square Garden. This was my fourth time seeing the band and they continue to impress. Bono belted out every song with record quality vocals and the other band members, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullens Jr. did not miss a note (or beat). Stepping […]
We’re just about eight months in to 2015 and I though this would be a good time to see how I’m doing on the resolutions I’ve made earlier this year. Previously, long before the snow has had a change to melt, the promises I’ve made to better myself were tossed aside and forgotten as I’m sure is […]
I used to let a lot of things bother me, and I mean a lot of things. In recent times however I’ve come to realize that it takes more effort to get upset over something than it does to just let it go. And, like the song in Disney’s Frozen, I have learned to let […]
