Q: Can I replace that $800 a week job I used to have blogging?

Robert Stacy McCain seems to think I should start a tip jar around here to see if I can make a go of it since I’ve had little luck on the job front since I’ve opened the blog.

So starting today you will see a page to the right called the “I’ll do it myself, Tucker” fund. This is in reference to my repeated offer to Tucker Carlson of Daily Caller fame to give him 40 hours a week work for $800.. So since Tucker is not willing to pony up I’m going to see if I can manage it from the blog itself.

I live pretty cheap, I don’t spend a lot of money on things I don’t need (cell phones, flat screen tv’s etc) and I get my insurance through my wife’s job. $800 a week and I can support myself and the family without a problem.

If you feel so inclined then feel free to click the link to the right and give to the “I’ll do it myself Tucker” fund. ( A PayPal account or Credit Card will be necessary) If I discover that I can average that $800 a week over the course of two months then I’ll stop worrying and just blog full time.

My review of the Mafia Board Game Blood Feud In New York is available at Amazon.com here.

Although the chance to rule New York might prove irresistible be warned in a 5+ player game this game tends to be very unforgiving to both the too timid or the too bold.

I’ve noticed our group rarely plays it anymore suggesting that although it is a fun game its replay value is less that you might expect. If you are looking for a more “family friendly” and less complicated way to fight the mob wars there’s always Family Business.

Now to keep my promise…

…to the fans of Fr. Feeney that took exception to my post here. I said the following in comments to reply to them:

But I tell you what, although I’m not going to continue the debate here (particularly since it is an old post) I’ll make it a point to ask my parish priest on the matter to confirm the official church position, and of course I’ll leave up your comments so that if people read the post they can read your rebuttal and make up their own mind.

This is going to get kinda long and I’m going to annoy a lot of people when it’s done so try to read it to the end before you get angry.

My review of the Doctor Who Big Finish adventure # 105 The Condemned, staring Colin Baker as the 6th Doctor and India Fisher as Charley Pollard is available at Amazon.com here.

This is the very first Big Finish audio I ever heard. 180 audios later it is still my favorite. I was very lucky to start out with this one as Eddie Robson has proved to be the best writer of Doctor Who audios that I’ve yet to hear.
