Little Dude makes his Baseball Debut!

Alex - Little Dude gets ready for the delivery!  (In two games he's .750 w/ 3 for 4 2 RUNs and 1 RBI)


Hey everyone, 

       Well, I hope the end of 2010 and beginning of 2011 have been treating you well?  Busy with "work" which continues to take me to the Northern/Northeastern US (Detroit, Minneapolis, New York & Boston) regions as well as out to the West now (Denver, Phoenix, San Jose & Sacramento!)

       The beginning of the 3rd quarter saw the FUBARHQ get some repairs done to the roof and subsequently saw four leaks throughout the beginning of 2011.  Suffice to say that getting the contractor to make good on the "warranty" has been a stereotypical nightmare and yours truly has had to make many an attempt to patch the poor workmanship!  The FUBAR Contractor Services Dept is "confident" however that the repairs are complete but won't know until the next rain encounter - watch this space!?      

       In Little Dude news, Alex has begun his baseball career this Spring!  Debuting at 3rd base and batting 3 for 4 with 2 RUNs and 1 RBI after two games (both won.)  We couldn't be happier with the Little Dude's enthusiasm and excitement for the game!  As more develops along the way, be sure to check out Alex's photo galleries for pictures and "news" captions. 

  Little Dude takes a lead!

       So, aside from the Great Flood of 2011, Little Dude's baseball apprenticeship, taking Jess to visit w/ Thomas (again), a massive back-log of "computer" maintenance and the day to day FUBARHQ operations (and some work thrown in to keep me honest) the only other big news was that the Cyber Kid made it to his 175th Hooter's location.  Campbell, CA just a few trains stops from San Jose, CA was the lucky 175th location for Dave (and Cheeky!)  Obligatory photos and food aside, the Cyber Kid was made welcome by the entire staff!  Be sure to watch as we countdown to 200!?..

       And speaking of Cheeky! The brand new Cheeky 2011 journal is online.  Be sure to head over and see what that crazy monkey has gotten up to since last September!?  If you'd forgotten,  Cheeky's 'SwingerMonkey.net' site was given a "Major" overhaul with the entire album divided into a yearly format last September!  The new look allowing repeat visitors easier access to new content and give new visitors a chance to view the online "journals" in segments!  Be sure to check out the updated page for new and updated pics!

  Stacy, Nancy & Stephanie show off for our 175th!

Just in case you still don't have this memorized!?...

Since I left you last I was entertaining a major coffee habit but in the last four months I was able (in about 4 days actually) to go from 5-6 cups a day to one!  While I do still drink 5-6 cups of "coffee" a day only one of them now actually is caffeinated!  So, with this I felt I needed to update my four cups list! -

There are four cups of coffee consumed in the morning.  Each cup is named/labeled by the emotional state that it facilitates in the drinker.  The four cups are labeled as follows -

1. :oI - The "Up" Cup (Decaf);  to wake you... as the smooth aroma entices you and the silky taste prepares you for -

2. :o) - The "Happy" Cup (The One w/ Caffeine!); as the neurons start to fire and the body kicks to life, shifting into "high" gear,  a sense of well-being overcomes...

3. :o[ - The "Angry" Cup; (Decaf) "well-being" is cast aside as the desire to choke the living daylights out of a random stranger for all the problems in the world ensues... plus you no longer get the rush from the caffeine so that pretty much bums you out...

4. :o\ - The "Motivation" Cup (Decaf/Optional Caf cup);  after realizing that violence isn't (necessarily) the answer and the fact that you've been sitting at the coffee shop for a few hours, this cup "snaps" you back to the reality that you actually have "stuff" to do and so, with this refill... you leave... and either get some stuff done (if you went with the Caf) or crash on the couch (with the Decaf option!)

There you have it...  Now go grab a cup of mud and indulge a bit...


CHEEKY'S "continuing" adventures now contains some 800+ pictures, be sure to check out his website -
