It’s the weekend before the great Akron Hamburger Festival in downtown. We ventrured with Michele to Akron’s newest burger joint, Metro Burger. It’s nestled in the business district of Highland Square. When you enter the restaurant, you pick up a clip board with a stack of order sheets on it. You can select one of their signature burgers or create your own. Greg and I both had the Texas Classic (bbq sauce, bacon & white cheddar). It was fresh and hot and tasty. The fried pickles were also a delight. Below are some more pictures from our visit. Please to enjoy.

The shelf with all of the clip boards.

Here’s my burger.

haven't posted a "need" lately

A t-shirt to promote my blog. Probably a waste of money, but would be fun to have. With, of course, the original signature-mike orange logo.

iPhone funness

With the new iPhone apps store I was able to download a blogging application that makes it super easy to blog right from my iPhone. In fact, that’s how I wrote this post.

friday night

Had dinner at Plaza Maya, the new Mexican restaurant in Tallmadge, with friends. Afterwards we came home and played wii bowling. I had my best game ever, a 277. Lots and lots of strikes baby!

4th of july morning


We took our bikes out for the first time this year. It was a beautiful
and cool morning for a leisurely ride along the tow path. Click the photo album in the right column for a
few pictures from our ride this morning. It was the perfect way to
start this holiday weekend.

what in the heck does it mean?

So many people have asked.  What in the heck does GZPZ mean? In fact, recently I had a note left on my car asking what it meant on my license plates. So here’s the explanation.

GZPZ (geezy peezy) is just a silly phrase that I use from time-to-time.  I’m trying
to get it to catch on…much like don’t have a cow in the late 80′s,
early 90′s.  :)  Here’s an occasion I’ve used it recently.  So I’m
standing in a check out line at the ACME Fresh Market (and golly, those food prices are
getting out of hand!). Back to the story, the older lady in front of me pulls out her
check book to pay. I have said to myself, or perhaps even muttered quietly
under my breath, "Geezy peezy, who still pays with a check at the
grocery store, get a debit card for crying out loud."

There you have it, gzpz in a nut shell. Pass it on, and use it in your daily life. You’ll be glad you did.
