Open a CD

I've never been to open a CD.

But after talking with my son today after he update his Certificate of Deposit, I am thinking of opening one. Actually, we are thinking of opening one together that is dedicated strictly to be an "education fund". This way we can earn a little more on what is sitting in our savings account, giving us that much more to put towards paying off school bills.

That I'd like to see.

night club

I've never been to a night club.

 And I'm not sure that I ever really want to. But last week at the Firefly run, I had a taste of "social culture" that I have not felt for a long time. The DJ had all his equipment and doing a great job getting the crowd pumped up and ready (I'm not sure if he was using the jbl pro at musicians friend). When we had a delay to begin the event he even had folks from the crowd give him music to play and lots of them came up on stage to dance together. A couple of the songs he played are apparently current favorites that lots of folks know. The DJ had folks on stage doing the "Wobble" and "What's the Fox Say?" It was fun to watch everyone and to learn a few current favorites!

 That I'd like to see.

firefly run

I've never been to the firefly run. I have signed up this year for the Houston event. It takes place on Nov 2 at Reliant Center. It is a night time 5k event that promises to be a lot of fun! I am also an amassador for this year's event. If you are interested take a look at their website. If you want to save on registration I can give you a discount code for $10 off registration. Simply enter the code Kouba13 at registration. It is good until Oct. 30. I hope to see you at this year's Houston Firefly event!! That I'd like to see.

promise rings

I've never been to buy a promise ring. I didn't even really know that guys still got promise rings for girlfriends. I did see that there is a site where guys can get some really pretty rings for their girlfriends. There are diamond or cubic zirconia. You can have them personalized. They even offer promise necklaces. I think a promise ring is a nice way to go if you cannot afford the large diamond ring or have a long time to wait and not ready for engagement. It is a sweet sentiment. That I'd like to see.

Seabrook Running Trails

I had never been to the Seabrook Running Trails before.

So on my day off yesterday, I set out to give them a try. I knew before hand from reading a bit on the internet where I wanted to park (Pine Gully Park) and I also knew that part of the trails were closed for flood redistribution work.

So when I got there I proceeded into Pine Gully Park but was stopped by a man in the guard shack telling me I would have to pay if I wanted to park there. I told him I was just looking for a place to park to run on the trails. He told me to park by the nearby cemetery. I did not as a sign stated "No Parking". So I back tracked a bit to another small parking area near the part of the trail that was closed off. I talked to a guy who stopped for a moment and told me he thought the closed trails should have already been opened up, but unsure how much longer they would be closed.

After I ventured a way back and forth on the trail, I realized that I actually had been on part of the trail before with my nephews.

The trails themselves are very flat with very few places going through wooded areas (though I have no idea what the closed off portions are like.) In all I ran about an hour and completely covered the trails back and forth, except for the frisbee golf section. It's not a bad run, though not sure it's worth the drive over.

I may try it again sometime when the other section opens back up. Definitely a good break from pavement running. And one of these years I just might try the Lucky Trails half marathon.

 That I'd like to see.

Software Security Solutions

I've never been to Software Security Solutions.

But I came across this site today that offers some security solutions for your computer or Android phone. They offer security software from free "reactive only" to the layered Avira Business Edition which works perfectly with networks. They state you do not have to be an IT expert to be able to utilize their software.

That I'd like to see.

Smash Burger

I've never been to Smash Burger. But it sounds pretty good and seems like they use pretty good ingredients. I wish I'd have know last weekend that there is a Smash Burger in a neighboring town. It might have been worth the drive over after our triathlon to pig out! I think I would opt to build my own burger. Nothing fancy, but they do have a multigrain bun, Angus beef, cheese, avocados or guacamole and sweet potato fries.....yum. I may have to make a trip over there soon! That I'd like to see.
