Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show


The final installment of our family vacation to South Padre Island, Texas this year. It was a nice, laid-back vacation, at that. Very enjoyable for everyone.
We stayed at the Inverness resort, which was nice enough - it allowed pets and that's why we initially chose it; we intended on bringing our dogs. There were some cockroaches... that may or may not be a problem everywhere down there, I'm not certain. There was only one we found inside - they mostly were on the balcony outside. But it was overall very nice, especially how close it was to the beach.
We discuss eating, restaurants, attractions, etc.
Then we headed to San Antonio and stopped at El Pollo Loco, where we hadn't eaten at in a few years. Delicious as usual.
We went on the riverwalk in San Antonio, beautiful place. Great end to a great trip.

We used Groupon quite a bit on this trip and it saved us a fair amount of money.

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** The next dish up for our most recent order of Home Chef was the pesto chicken pizza with mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and arugula. This was another really good recipe - Brittain and I gave it a 7. And Brittain doesn't like tomatoes, but she loved the grape tomatoes Home Chef provided us with... so they got good produce!
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Another shipment of Home Chef has arrived, and this first dish is the weeknight chicken quesadillas, with Chihuahua cheese and pico de gallo. It was a very simple dish to prepare, but it was very delicious - we both rated it a solid 7. Lookin' forward to the next dish. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site:
Since Robin and Tiana were away for the weekend, and it was around the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Britty mentioned watching all Marvel movies in chronological order up to when we would see Infinity War in the theater together. She made a check list and everything. ;-) It was an exhausting experience but it was loads of fun, and Infinity War ended up being my favorite movie out of them all.
So I've been wanting to buy a new camera and after much research I picked out Panasonic's GH5 or the GH5S. I still love my Sony RX100 Mark III, but I wanted to get a better camera. But I can't decide between better video quality or better stabilization. So instead of shelling out $3,000 on a brand new camera, I decided to stay with my Sony for now and see how well I like using a gimbal for
Robin and I thought we'd give the food delivery company Factor 75 a try: always fresh food and special diet friendly meals delivered straight to your door. These meals were kind of like TV dinners, where they are all pre-made and you simply warm them up in either the oven or the microwave. This video is an honest review of the product... there was nothing *wrong* with it, but we decided it wasn't

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** And for the final dish of this Home Chef order, Tiana prepared a simple chicken scampi with ciabatta croutons. I love pasta, and the chicken was very flavorful. I gave it a 6.5 and Robin gave it a 7. Looking forward to the next order! Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** For our second meal, we've got Home Chef's sticky glazed pork tenderloin with sesame broccoli. I could tell it looked good before I even took a bite. Even when I hate vegetables, the broccoli was pretty decent. But the pork was delicious, I gave it an 8. :-) Subscribe: http://...

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** With another box of Home Chef ordered, Tiana first prepares for us the acapulco beef burger, with fresh pico de gallo and cilantro-lime fries. It was pretty good for a burger, the chipotle mayo could've been a little spicier. ;-) I rated it a 6. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Final night of this order of Home Chef. Tiana prepared for us the tex-mex turkey-stuffed peppers, with enchilada sauce and Chihuahua cheese. This one wasn't a favorite of mine, but stuffed peppers aren't typically my thing anyways. I gave it a 5. That finishes this set of dishes, now on to the next order! Subscribe:
This video is simply some more clarification regarding the usage of the MFJ-1026 noise and interference canceling enhancer with my W6LVP magnetic loop receive antenna.

***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Another order of our favorite Home Chef. This mean Tiana prepared was the Sicilian chicken with green beans and tomatoes pizzaiola. Another pretty solid dish from Home Chef - I gave it a 6 and a half, Robin rated it 5 and a half. Home Chef has some of the widest selections and best recipes out of all the food delivery
Since I made a successful contact on 80 meters now that I have enough power and 2 tuners, I of course wanted to try it again. In this video I showcase the contacts I was able to make on 80 meters on digital modes. Then I ramble about my opinions on the Yaesu FT-817ND and the FT-891, and I discuss other various amateur radio equipment that I've been using, and the pros and cons of them.
i got myself the Jetstream JTPS45 45 amp power supply to run my 100W - and actually use all 100 watts - Yaesu FT-891 radio. And it was successful in doing that. And then I tested transmitting on 80 meters, using my AT-120 manual tuner, I was able to make a contact. It was only 217 miles away, but still, my first real opportunity on 80 meters. So despite that awful conditions, but I was able to
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Another meal delivery from Home Chef. For our first dish, Tiana has prepared for us the smoky-sriracha pork tenderloin with roasted broccoli. This was a decent meal - very simple, but pork was interesting. Looking forward to the next meal! :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...
Cory Brada, who once upon a time worked for a radio station and has experience in interviewing boring people like me ;-), decided to give me a feature on his podcast Brada's Branded Thoughts. It was a lot of fun talking about myself, unsurprisingly. ;-) And I think Cory did a good job making me interesting, so if you're interested in learning more about my career, hobbies and personal life, this
