Educational System in Georgia gets an F

Written by The Geek on 2011-10-05   

So recently I moved my whole family from sunny South Florida, to beautful Georgia.  I did all the required homework up front, or so I thought.  Checked neighborhood, schools, crime rates, weather, and all sorts of other comparisons I could find, before deciding on an area and putting an offer on a house.  Once we moved into our new house, I was then told by the schools that my daughter cannot attend.  Yes, the local public school flat out denied my child.


Best Buy displays Worst Behaviour

Written by The Geek on 2011-02-24   

I've been a long-time customer of Best Buy.  While they don't always have the best deals on what I'm looking for, they have a wide selection and usually have what I am looking for in stock.  Plus, their sales are usually pretty good.  But what happens when the good goes bad?


Chasing Chase

Banks.  They've got their good and they've got their bad.  But sometimes, it seems like they are just out to get their customers money, however shady the means may be.  I thought Chase was different.  I thought wrong.


Renaissance Fair loses its Flair

Written by The Geek on 2010-03-01   

Down here in South Florida, we have an annual event called the Renaissance fair, or the "Ren Fair" as we call it.  It's basically a bunch of people, who put on silly garb, and put on shows and exhibitions, and give people a small taste of what it used to be like in the middle ages.  Or so I thought, anyways.


Disney should take a lesson from Burger King

Written by The Geek on 2009-08-31   

So I had the pleasure of spending the last 3 days in Orlando with my oldest daughter, who just turned 16.  Sure, I overindulged her with shows and food and games and such, but you only turn 16 once, so this was a special treat.  So when we walked into the "Design-a-Tee" store in Downtown Disney, we were expecting to be able to design our own t-shirt, not a lesson in how NOT to do things.
