Walmart Customer Service  & Shipping for my Backyard Discovery Swing Set

This article is part of a series of articles on my experience purchasing and building a swingset from Walmart.com. I purchased my Backyard Discovery swing set from Walmart.com, but the particular model and manufacturer I ended up with wasn’t my first choice.  Though they all look very similar, as though they are all built by the […]

Ordering & Building a Swing Set from Walmart.com

We recently bought a new home with a big backyard for our “busy” son to have more room to wear himself out.  Here in Las Vegas, most backyards are quite small. We actually had to move out of Summerlin to be able to afford a bigger house with a sizeable backyard (a post I need […]

D-Link: Certificate Has Been Revoked - Java Video Viewer Not Working

A while back, I posted a How-To / Review on my D-Link DCS-5020L IP Camera, which I set up as a baby monitor. I primarily view the camera on my iPhone using a free IP camera app I found, but sometimes try to view the camera from my laptop as I work in my office. […]

The Best Big-O-Tires in Las Vegas

I previously wrote an article on how to get a discount on tires in Las Vegas without even needing a Big-O-Tires coupon by calling around to a couple Big-O-Tires asking for each one to give me their best price. I ended up going to the Summerlin Big-O-Tires (10127 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135) near […]

My wife and I purchased a new home from Touchstone Living, a privately owned Las Vegas home builder, in June of 2015. Our house is just North of Lone Mountain on the North West side of Las Vegas.

Big-O-Tires Las Vegas Discount - No Coupon Necessary

I'm amazed that I can call 3 different Big-O-Tires here in Las Vegas and get 3 very different prices for the exact same tires!  Doing so always allows me to find a better discont than I could possibly even do with a great coupon. Our Hyundai Santa Fe just hit 70,000 miles, which is 10,000 miles over the […]

Should I put solar power on my roof here in Las Vegas, Nevada?

A few months ago, my wife and I moved into our newly built home on the North West side of Las Vegas, not too far from Lone Mountain (I need to write an article on why we moved out of Summerlin; Please leave a comment if you'd like to read why). We finally sold our old […]

Paula Poundstone - Live Stand-Up Comedy Review

Back when I was a kid, I used to watch a lot of late night comedy shows on broadcast tv (we didn't have cable)... well I'd actually record them and watch them the next day as I wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to watch them when they aired. I even dubbed my favorite comedians sets onto […]

Learning to negotiate with a builder on a newly built home in Las Vegas

My wife and I signed to buy a house 12 hours ago and I’m wide awake at 3:30am tossing and turning not with buyers remorse but with negotiators remorse. I say that because I learned a ton doing this transaction that I wish I had known before our negotiation yesterday, and though I got a pretty […]

Summerlin Pumpkin Patch: Las Vegas @ Flamingo & Grand Canyon - Review

My wife and I visited the local "Stu Miller's Pumpkin Patch" in Summerlin Las Vegas on the NW corner of  Flamingo and Grand Canyon today with our 20 month old boy.  We had a good time walking around taking pictures in the pumpkin patch. We had a fun, but our boy was too small to […]
