As I’ve done in 2006 and 2007, I’m going to list again all the rare McDonald’s monopoly pieces for all to enjoy. This time I’m also going to list the prize that is associated with the McDonald’s monopoly piece. Lots of good prizes out there if you find the rare monopoly piece which is used to determine the odds of winning.

As always, if you’re missing the monopoly pieces that aren’t the rare ones, you can go and purchase the McDonald’s Monopoly pieces on eBay. This way you only have to look for the rare pieces and then purchase the rest of them on eBay if you happen to get one of the rare ones.

Golden Avenue is code number 271 and wins a prize of $100,000
Water Works is code number 279 and wins a prize of $50
Mediterranean Avenue is code number 251 and wins a prize of $100
Vermont Avenue is code number 254 and wins a prize of $1,000
Virginia Avenue is code number 258 and wins a prize of $2,000
Tennessee Avenue is code number 260 and wins a prize of $5,000
Kentucky Avenue is code number 262 and wins a prize of $10,000
Ventnor Avenue is code number 266 and wins a prize of $25,000
Pennsylvania Avenue is code number 270 and wins a prize of $50,000
Boardwalk is code number 274 and wins a prize of $1,000,000 (annuity)
Short Line is code number 278 and wins a prize of $500

Let me know if you find one of the rare ones. I have a feeling this year one of my readers is going to win one of the big McDonald’s monopoly prizes. I just wish they had a monopoly piece on their sausage egg mcmuffins. Then, I’d have a great shot at winning.

Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a complete ultimate frisbee addict. It’s snowing here in Utah on my vacation and I’m still planning on finding a game and going out to play.

This also makes sense why I got so excited when I saw that someone had created an ultimate frisbee computer game. I’ll download it now and if you don’t see a post for a while, then you’ll know why.

Getting in Shape Even After Summer

At work I am right next to the Health Educators. We always have interesting conversations about working out and staying in shape. Recently we talked about staying in shape even if it isn’t summer and you don’t have to wear a bikini.

I told them about a Bodybuilding Forum that I found that has a lot of good information. You’ll find lots of good information on training, supplements, nutrition, fat loss, exercise routine and plenty more to keep you in shape even during winter.

The best part of the Bodybuilding Forum is that you can ask any specific questions you have and get answers from people who are fitness minded and work in the fitness and bodybuilding fields.

Free Business Cards – Great for Entrepreneurs

Posted on: September 6, 2006 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

About 3 months ago I made a presentation to a bunch of business people and angel investors for a business plan competition. I ended up doing pretty well and met a lot of interesting people. After winning the competition I was talking with one of the judges trying to create a relationship with him since he works for a multi-national company that does search engine marketing. Probably someone worth knowing.

After talking a little, he asked me for a business card. I was stuck. I had just written a business plan and hadn’t even considered the fact that someone might actually wany my number. Granted, considering my budget at the time I would have certainly needed to find some free business cards.

Well, it turns out that I’m a complete fool. There are plenty of places across the web where you can get free business cards. You can imagine my disgust with myself when I found out about free business cards. I can’t imagine what that executive thought of me without business cards when I could have gotten some for free!! I guess I could have blamed it on the fact that many places charge you shipping for the cards.

After telling him that I didn’t have any business cards on me, he said one phrase that will ring in my ears for a long time…

“An entrepreneur without a business card.

I’ve learned my lesson. I’ll always have a business card handy.

DiscHoops – Basketball Meets Soccer Meets Frisbee

Posted on: June 2, 2006 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

I’m personally a complete lover of sports. However, I do have a specific bias to playing Ultimate Frisbee. It is by far my favorite sport to play and I probably spend too much time playing it. My excuse is that is my plan on how to stay skinny.

I think on one of my ultimate frisbee email lists(probably las vegas ultimate frisbee) I got an email with a link to a google video of a new frisbee sport called DiscHoops. The video wasn’t the best, but it was pretty good for an ameteur video and the game definitely intrigued me. I found a better description of the sport and it’s new rules at the official DiscHoops website. I really can see some good points about the game.

I’m not sure why the website has to try to knock ultimate frisbee as a game to promote DiscHoops though. Why can’t both games coexist and have people playing both games. That part of the website was a bit of a let down for me. It reminds me of how society thinks that 2 people can’t be great because if you are great then that means I’m not great. It is so completely messed up. I digress.

DiscHoops looks like fun. The major problem I have with it is getting 2 goals and enough people that know the rules to get started playing. Ultimate can be played with bags or sandals as the goals and many more people know how to play it right. However, you can be sure that if I see a game of DiscHoops being played I’ll be asking if I can get in and play too. In fact, that’s how I started playing ultimate. Oh the days of feeling like I know how to play a sport and then realizing that I didn’t have a clue.
