the corbin dallas multi task

I know what needs to be done today, and I plan on having it all done and then some. Waking up a little earlier than expected makes the everyday tasks easier to complete.

I can stay busy for the rest of the day, the rest of the week, and the week after, then the month, then the years. You know how it goes: Wake up. Do stuff. Sleep. Repeat.

the 4-pack of 4gb flash drives 4 $25 | buy.com

The mobility and easy access of USB flash drives make them one of the best candidates for transporting data. We just invested in this 4-pack of Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB flash drives. We use them for school, general data storage, and even to run operating systems like Ubuntu on.

When you have to copy data from one location to another that are not networked, then you will need another fast and reliable method. Uploading and downloading using the internet can take some time and additional effort depending on the resources available. Burning the data onto a recordable disc will also take more time than necessary and then even more time to be copied off that disc onto the machine.

The Generation 3 series of Kingston DataTraveler flash drives exhibits faster read/write speeds than the predecessors. Kingston manufactures dependable computer memory solutions, and their flash drives always go on sale because they are always in demand and constantly being improved. The Kingston DataTraveler line of flash drives are also backed with a five-year warranty, so they’re guaranteed to fulfill your storage needs.

Order yourself a 4-pack of these 4GB flash drives for only $24.95 and free shipping while supplies last. That’s about $6.25 each! If you were to buy individual flash drives of this size and superior quality, then you’ll be looking at spending around $10 each and then possibly sales tax plus shipping. Kingston DataTraveler is the flash drive series I choose to rely on for high-quality, compact disk space.

the sand crabs of mustang island

We try to spend some time at Mustang Island State Park on Padre Island in Corpus Christi when we visit. We seem to discover creatures of the beach that we have never seen on previous trips.

This time, we noticed tiny crabs scurrying around that dig holes in the dry sand. They were easy to catch and pick up. They were passive animals once they found themselves in the palm of our hands, so I was able to snap these macro photos of the few crabs that we caught. We immediately let them go once they side-stepped off our hands and fell back onto the warm sand.

the daddy longlegs

At the beginning of October, the Texas heat finally took a little bit of time off. The nights were pleasant, so we left the sliding door open and closed the screen door to let the cool air in and keep the critters out.

This daddy longlegs made its way onto the wall near the sliding door. I’ve seen these creatures before, but this is by far the largest one I’ve ever seen.

the iron stomach

Shortly after I posted about EZ’s Brick Oven & Grill this past Sunday, I decided to fill out their comment card online. For the feedback section, I just copied the section of my post about my undercooked burger. I received a voicemail the next day from the general manager of that location. He was apologetic and wanted to make everything right. I returned his call, and we set up a meeting time for the next day which was convenient for me since I was going to be in the area around that time.

When I stopped in on Tuesday, he shook my hand and offered me food on the house. I told him that I had already eaten. We sat at a table, and he reiterated what he said on the phone the day before. I explained from my perspective that burgers should not be pink when ordered from a restaurant. I also mentioned that my brother had ordered the smaller size of the same burger and the patty was pink as well. He asked me about everyone else’s food. I took a short moment to recall and told him that it was OK which really meant no big complaints from them. He then gave me his business card with four Be My Guest complimentary entree cards. Score.

Before I started writing this post, I decided to skim through the Yelp reviews. One of the reviews actually mentioned an undercooked burger patty, so that issue must be part of their reputation. I’m iffy to return but most likely will. I can’t pass up on a complimentary meal for four. I told myself that I’d order a burger to give them another chance at burgers, but after reading that review, I may just go with a pizza.

EZ’s was actually our second choice to dine in since the amazing Thai place up the street was packed to the gills (as usual), EZ’s was nearby, and I’ve never eaten their food before. I noticed that they weren’t busy at all between 8-9pm on a Saturday night, and when I stopped in at 6pm on Tuesday, they weren’t very busy either. I guess the word has made its way around that EZ’s is overall subpar food, and the nearby competition is just stomping them. Sigh.
