2021 Week 6 – Bundle Up!

We had quite the cold snap this last week and it’s supposed to last until NEXT WEEKEND! At least the sun is out today & helps take the edge off. Oh yeah, the Groundhog saw its shadow Tuesday so we get this stuff for 6 more weeks.

I was able to take advantage of the Hoagies and Hops Thursday lunch special last week. I’ve seen the “Godfather” on their Instagram feed for a few weeks and was finally able to check it out! Grilled Salami, Capicola, Prosciutto, Bacon, Sharp Provolone and Pepper Relish. Add a side of perfectly cooked crinkle fries & you have an awesome lunch!

The Godfather special at Hoagies and Hops

The entire NCAA Championship (March Madness) is going to be centralized in Indiana. This is a HUGE win for the city that will bring some much needed stimulus to the downtown area. It was also announced this week that the entire Big-10 tournament is going to be held in Indianapolis. It’s not known yet if they will be allowing fans to attend. Congrats to all those involved to make this happen!

What color will the Gatorade be that gets dumped first at the Super Bowl? Who will win the coin toss? Will it be heads or tails? These are just a fraction of the fun side bets you can make for the Big Game. Since online gambling has become legal in Indiana I’ve been having a lot of fun playing along. Soccer and Football have been my favorites and my initial deposit of $50 has kept me entertained for the last year. If you want to make the game a little more interesting try placing a small bet on the outcome!

And finally…

Winter Wonderland?

Sure it looks pretty but this is one hell of a storm that’s blowing through the midwest tonight.  With wind chills expected around -40F tomorrow it’s going to be interesting to see how Central Indiana makes it through this one!

Stay safe everyone!

Forecast.io is One of the Best Weather App to Date

Always on the lookout for cool applications, Forecast.io was recommended to me by a coworker. It’s one of the first HTML5 web applications I’ve used that acts like an installed application.

To access the application all you need to do is point your internet browser to http://forecast.io and follow the on-screen instructions (if any). In the case of the iPhone you create a link on your home screen and access that app from there going forward.

Visually the application is clean and gives a glimpse of what the new iOS7 will look like when it’s released later this year.

From a functionality standpoint it covers all the basics and has a few little twists that I’ve already found useful (like the small chart that shows the timing and intensity of rain in the next hour).  It’s worth checking out of you want something different from what you’re currently using.

Batter Up!

Took the boy to an Indian’s game last Friday night.  I was hoping the bad weather would miss us and then this happened in the bottom of the 6th…2013-06-28 20.52.35Then the sky opened up and let loose a pretty big downpour.  We were just far enough up in the lower level box seats to have some cover.  We waited around for an hour & called a night.  Hoping to go back for another Friday night game and see the post-game fireworks!
