Talon’s Kindle Fire

We got Talon’s Kindle Fire today. I think Talon was in shock, he kept asking Stacia if it was his Kindle Fire. I think he will really like it! The real challenge will be teaching how to take care of it properly.

A day trip to Idaho Falls

Stacia, Talon and I made a trip to Idaho Falls on Sunday to look at a possible new location for the store. We woke up at 6:15 and noticed that it had snowed about two inches over night. I about cancelled the trip, but we checked the road reports and the roads looked clear with […]

Old Games

After the small flood that we had, Stacia had to move a bunch of boxes out of the storage / utility room and in the process uncovered my old Gameboy Advance. Talon can’t put it down. All I have to do to get him to do something like clean his room is threaten to take […]

Kindle Fire for Talon

We decided to get a Kindle Fire for Talon. We were looking at the Leapfrog Explorer, but it cost almost as much as the fire and the games are about 25 bucks a pop. A lot of the apps for the “KF” are less than five bucks and are just as good if not better. […]

Our little flood

Yesterday I went to hop in the shower and we didn’t have any hot water. So Stacia went downstairs to check the pilot light on the water heater and discovered there was about an inch of water on the floor on the utility / storage room. Most of our stuff was in plastic bins, so […]

Lease negotiations

The lease for our current location is up in a little less than a year. (For our Idaho Falls store) So it is time to re-negotiate the lease. One advantage of a down economy is that rent prices have dropped and we should be able to save quite a bit of money on rent. Another […]

Our new RC Mechanic

Tracy came out on Wednesday and helped to fix a few of the RC car repair we had stacking up. I think he will do a great job and hopefully it is something he will enjoy.

Watching Star Trek Voyager with Talon

Talon and I are watching some ST:V and trying to figure out what to make for dinner.  I’m still battling some Taco Time from a few days ago!!!

Families vs. Politics

Everyone in my family is fighting over politics. Half of the family Love Obama and the other half aren’t so fond of him. I understand that there will be some disagreements, but come on don’t be so thin skinned. Can’t we have an adult discussion without everyone’s nose getting bent out of joint?

Moving to Idaho Falls

Stacia and I decided to start our new hobby store in Idaho Falls.  We looked at a few other places like Centerville in Utah, but decided that Idaho Falls met our needs better and after doing some market research we also discovered that there really wasn’t much in the way of a hobby stores in […]
