Junk Products

I used to love Sony.  They made quality products that you could count on.  Nowadays, they make cheap Chinese junk just like a lot of the other garbage manufacturers.

I just got done watching my Sony DVD player scratch a brand new DVD to the point that I can't fix it anymore. The DVD player is 2 days old, yet Sony insists that the labor and shipping costs (under warranty) are $74.  For a $49 DVD player...  Yeah, you do the math.

I will never own another Sony product as long as I live.

Has it really been 18 months since I posted anything here?  That doesn't seem possible...  It's amazing how quickly time passes as we get older.

While we were out on a hike this past weekend, my son decided to throw a rock.  At his sister.  Which hit her in the head.  It was only a golf-ball size rock, but as you can probably imagine this is like saying, "he only hit me with a framing hammer; at least it wasn't a sledge!"  After holding some ice on her head (and yelling at the boy) we managed to all have a good weekend.

And, here I am.  At the end of the week.  Again.

Time passes far too quickly.
