Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1] and my initial foray into the world of Podcasting (July 23, 2017)

Audio 001 – Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1]

Last July 17, 2017, the family and I caught a late afternoon showing of Cars 3[i] before proceeding to a nearby department store in order to check out some of their Disney Pixar Cars 3 merchandise on display.

Strategically displayed by the escalator, there was a host of Cars 3 eye candy.  But the one that caught my eye was the Series 1 Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers.  These blind bag items retailed for about P149.50 so I decided to pick up a couple of bags for this review.[ii]

The Exhibit will run from July 22-31, 2017.

Addendum: Guys, if you like the video, please take time out to also subscribe to my YouTube channel.  Thank you!

What I learned from Charles Wade Barkley (July 12, 2017)

Credit Sir Charles with an assist!

Even at 54, Charles Wade Barkley can still inspire people.

He has certainly inspired me.

After catching the NBA TV segment where he announced his intention to take better care of himself (1:02), I immediately said to myself, “If Charles can do it, I need to make a similar commitment.”

Well, I didn’t use those exact words but, well, you get the idea.

Putting in the work

Yup!  I’m up to three times a week already and I’ll be honest: It wasn’t easy…it’s still not easy…but I’m getting there.

It is my hope that this post will in someway inspired you to go down a similar path. Read more…
