BTW, if anyone on here is interested in anything Craftsman and lives in the Denver area, make sure you hit me up with an email before you purchase anything cause I've got the inside scoop on the the best deals and products. Everything from an electronics screwdriver to power drill to a snowblower..... I'm your guy.

Think about getting this for the family - http://www.amazon.com/Sony-HDRPJ260V-Definition-Camcorder-Projector/dp/B006K5505E/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

I don't know a lot about Video Cameras. Have a Canon SLR that shoots great vid, but would like a dedicated video camera for the kids sporting events and school programs.

If anyone knows anything about Sony video cameras, please let me know!

My oldest kiddo wants a Farried Nuggets Jersey (Gold Alt) and a Von Miller or DT Broncos Jersey. Haven't been able to find either that I like. Most of the new Nike jerseys don't look good to me at all.

Stealth. They range from 7-10k. Down here I could buy a small car with that money, but I have been looking into this brand because of the performance and all terrain. Thank god we have a distributor down here. Last year when I started looking into them you either had to buy them through amazon or their store in Australia and chip them from there. You have to take into account that they are custom size made. They ask for a bunch of measurements and preferences. Can't wait! I am getting the Bomber. This babies go 50 mph.

Here take a look into them if you want.

Two thumbs WAAAAY up. Finally bought myself a 51-30 chrono last year, thinking about getting another one this year. REALLY like the tide, with the white face/black numbers, but they're tough to find :( The 51-30 is a big watch, but if you're a big guy, it looks pretty normal, which works well for me. I seriously get complimented on it all the time. BEST watch without breaking the bank!

Ya those are sick! The 42-20 chrono is a bit smaller, like the tide, and has a new color design. Gun metal and gold. Looks insane but its sold out all the time

LOL i am 40+ belly, not in great shape and i rode one that a friend loaned me. I kept up with guys who are semi pro quality mountain bikers who do it all the time. They are pricey though, out of my range for right now. They are great bikes though and the battery on them is high quality. They make it easier but i think people would ride a lot more if they had a bike like the optibike so it would still be good for excersise.

Yup, 42-20 is bowss! The tide is actually a 51-30 as well, I just love the way that the black numbers pop on the white!

You might really like the silver Player. My good friend finally got his in the mail, VERY secksay. He managed to get the Silver one before it went out of stock. Super classy, great simple design. http://www.nixon.com/mens/watches/the-player-A140.html

I just saw that one at a zumiez. I guess you can order online from them, and they find it in their shops around the country. The only thing I don't like about the white ones are they are made to chip, making it a vintage antique type look. The expensive ones (over 1,000) have white ones that don't chip. The player xl is sweet but at 1,200. The player has all kinds of cool colors. I never liked the square designs much but this one I'm gonna have to get. It's reasonable at 225

That's a great way to do it! I didn't know about the whote ones...that's a Bummer :( ya, the ceramic ones are sweet, but THAT is an investment!

I'm tellin ya, the player looks goooood. After sweing how nice my friend's is, I'm seriously contemplating the XL. I was never a fan of the square design either, but his had really changed my mind. Lemme know which one you go with!

A little Christmas story to put you in the Holiday mood.


Dear Santa,
How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the
elves, is fine. I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X-Box
360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas. I hope you remember
that come Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas,
Timmy Jones



Dear Timmy,
Thank you for you letter. Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves are all fine
and thank you for asking about them. Santa is a little worried all the time
you spend playing video games and texting. Santa wouldn't want you to get fat.
Since you have indeed been a good boy, I think I'll bring you something you
can go outside and play with.
Merry Christmas,
Santa Claus



Mr. Claus,
Seeing that I have fulfilled the "naughty vs. nice" contract, set by you I
might add, I feel confident that you can see your way clear to granting me
what I have asked for. I certainly wouldn't want to turn this joyous season
into one of litigation. Also, don't you think that a jibe at my weight coming
from an overweight man who goes out once a year is a bit trite?
Respectfully,
Tim Jones



Mr. Jones,
While I have acknowledged you have met the "nice" criteria, need I remind you
that your Christmas list is a request and in no way is it a guarantee of
services provided. Should you wish to pursue legal action, well that is your
right. Please know, however, that my attorney's have been on retainer ever
since the Burgermeister Meisterburger incident and will be more than happy to
take you on in open court. Additionally, the exercise I alluded to will not
only improve your health, but also improve you social skills and potentially
help clear up a complexion that looks like the bottom of the Burger King fry
bin most days.
Very Truly Yours,
S Claus



Now look here Fat Man,
I told you what I want and I expect you to bring it. I was attempting to be
polite about this but you brought my looks and my friends into this. Now you
just be disrespecting me. I'm about to tweet my boys and we're gonna be
waiting for your fat ass and I'm taking my game console, my game, my phone,
and whatever else I want. WHAT EVER I WANT, MAN!
T-Bone



Listen Pizza Face,
Seriously??? You think a dude that breaks into every house in the world on
one night and never gets caught sweats a skinny g-banger wannabe? "He sees you
when you're sleeping; He knows when you're awake". Sound familiar, genius? You
know what kind of resources I have at my disposal. I got your sh*t wired,
Jack. I go all around the world and see ways to hurt people that if I
described them right now, you'd throw up your Totino's pizza roll all over the
carpet of your mom's basement. You're not getting what you asked for, but I'm
still stopping by your crib to stomp a mud hole in you're a** and then walk it
dry. Chew on that, Petunia.
S Clizzy



Dear Santa,
Bring me whatever you see fit. I'll appreciate anything.
Timmy



Timmy,
That's what I thought you little bastard.
Santa

I did a chunk of the shopping online for obscure stuff:

Got my daughter this iPod case for her touch

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41NJMjY2SFL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

And this backpack for fun:

http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Pokemon-Backpack-Plush-Pikachu-Doll-Backpack-/00/s/NTQwWDYwMA==/$T2eC16hHJIIE9qTYMbcCBQBe!8FqU!~~60_12.JPG

And other things like that. I also got a groupon for skeetshooting for me, the gf, and her parents for an hour (approx $140) and another for couples ballroom dancing lessons.

Then I did the bulk of my shopping at Kohls. They've got great sales right now, and you can find coupons for another 20% off AND they give you $10 in Kohls cash for every fifty you spend (so now I've got another hundred to blow on whatever I want :) )

Grabbed a ton of girl clothes for my daughter
Cheap jewelry (she's 9)
Perfume for the gf and then some cheaper stuff (Candies) for the kiddo
Nerf guns for some little boy cousins
Car wet/dry vac for gf's dad (OCD type cleanly) for only $13 BEFORE discount
Hello kitty snuggy and slippers for kiddo
Bunch of coffee K-Cups
Etc

Even grabbed these:

Sometimes getting someone a service is nice, rather than a gift. My siblings and I are splitting out getting housekeepers to help our parents out around the house. It's not cheap by any means, but its something they need since my mother has to take care of dad with little time to do housekeeping and things.

Smaller services I've paid for friend and family:
Salon services for sister (hair or nails or some other spa thing).
Give a date night to friends: basically volunteer a night of their choosing to babysitting so they can go out with their spouse sans kids and usually kick in for drinks or some part of the date (movie, etc).

the rest of my gifts are less exciting. I got my nephew a video game. I got my sister a themed gift basket with alcohol and a nice glass set and got her husband an amazon gift card. My brother and his boys (who are varied ages, but under 6 mostly) I got a hand carved wooden airport set with a few planes and such. My brother is an aerospace engineer so I thought he'd enjoy playing with it with his boys.

As for me, I am hoping Santa brings me a K-cup machine now that my coffee pot has died.
