Cricket Speaker Review

Hi, my name is Gomez and I’m (still) a gadgetaholic. I’m especially addicted to gadgets that play music.

Fat (Video) Tuesday – School’s Out for Summer!

When this song came out, In 1972, I was a pugnacious 8th grader that lived to rock! In the Lake household, Mr. Alice Cooper was not very popular with my parental units. My mother’s given name was Alice and back in 1972, a man with a women’s name (that wore eye make-up) was scandalous. So a fat-bike […]
