2013 Top Ten List

Just for fun and from my empty nest perspective, I thought I would put together a top 10 list for 2013.

  1. Top Movie – This one is easy.  Frozen by a landslide.  Great story, great music and fun for all ages. Runner-up – Fast and Furious 6. Of course, of Time magazine’s top 10 movies of 2013, I must admit I have only seen 2 of the movies.  I understand Captain Phillips was very good as well, but I never managed to make it to the theater in time to see if it was worth including on my list.
  2. Top Song – Not for a MomentMeredith Andrews. Unbelievable voice and a great message.
  3. Top Annoying Trend – Tailgating in Wisconsin. I previously had thought this was a problem only with drivers from Illinois, but it seems Wisconsin drivers have picked up on this very annoying and, I might add, unsafe behavior.  I suppose it is true that as you get older, the safe driving distance guidelines tend to get extended. But, I hardly believe they are teaching the youth that for every 10 MPH they are driving that they need to be only 1 tricycle length behind the car in front of them.  From what I see on the interstate, I believe we have a little too much NASCAR influence creeping into our driving behaviors.
  4. Top Book I Read – Chop Chop – L.N. Cronk.  The first book in a series which explores a number of life’s little challenges.  What only makes this book better is that it has been free on Kindle and Nook for much of 2013.  I wish I could say I read a lot, but I did manage to make it through this series in short order.
  5. Top Sports Play – This one is easy, Rodgers to Cobb on 4th and 8 to beat the ever lovable Bears.
  6. Top New Techie Toy – Microsoft Surface Pro.  I tend to have a new techie toy each Christmas, even if not the latest and greatest. The price on this one has dropped dramatically over the last month and to me now seems like a great deal.  Windows 8.1 is very nice and the app store seems to be improving.
  7. Top TV Show – Person of Interest.  Gotta love a show where they keep shooting everyone in the kneecaps.
  8. Top Ice Cream – Edy’s Double Fudge Brownie.  Worth at least 10 lbs. a year.
  9. Top App – News Bento.  A great way to get all the news of interest in one place.
  10. Top Thing I Have No Idea How To Use – Chromecast – a present for my son.  Sounds neat, but I am not quite sure how to get the gizmo to work.

Happy New Year
