36 Hours of Gaming and a Crappy Shower

So on our last video game outing.  A 36 hour lock in of hard core gaming at a friends house was perfect but the damn Shower!  I think the house was built in the 30s and the piping has to be replaced or something.  The water pressure was so low that it felt like I was taking a shower with a dripping faucet.   My GOD it was a horrible experience.  I asked my friend what the hell is up with his shower and how do you DEAL with it.  Guess what he told me?  Oh it just the hallway bathroom that has a low water pressure and his bathroom works just fine.

I told him thank you for sharing that with me now!  I had to get the bathroom fixed for him.  So with the help of our friend Tom, who is a plumber we fixed the lower water pressure issue.   We also bought him a high pressure shower head as a birthday gift.  The cost was below $50.  You can find hundreds of best shower heads in the market.  We installed the shower head and now it feels like you are being shot with water!   That is how I like my showers but I just couldn’t let another “guest” ever have to deal with this “crappy shower” experience.

We got a new digital camera!

We got a brand new camera and can’t wait to put it to use!  We had an older Olympus camera for the past 4 years that worked well for us.  The camera took a dump and we needed a new one.  We did a lot of research on the cameras and there are so many options that it’s easy to get confused!  I asked my buddy Ron who is a professional photographer and he recommended some high end cameras for us which were a bit out of our budget.  We wanted to purchase something around the $500 – $600 range.   I did a search online for best digital cameras and got thousands of results!  Oh man is this going to be fun.   So I found a few websites that actually provide detailed reviews pros and cons of each camera.

I read some great information on best camera reviews at  They website was not cluttered and easy to navigate and follow.  I found other review sites also but they had too much going on with links to other cameras and images that it’s easy to get distracted.   I was able to follow this website with limited options and quickly narrow down to the camera that would meet all of our need.  We ended up purchasing a Nikon D3300.  We bought it for $546 with free shipping.  We got it with the base 18-55mm option.

Here are some Images of the Camera:
