Saugus Pizza Choices

Being a pizza lover, I'm eager to try new pizzas at local restaurants around Saugus. Today, for the first time I tried Peter's Pizza, located at Hamilton Plaza on Hamilton St.

The pizza was,...well, not bad at all. I'll certainly consider them next time I'm ordering a couple of pies to go. The have a special, two large 16" pizzas, $14.99, any time, any day, no coupon needed!

Everyone loves delicious pizza at Prince Pizzeria on Route 1. Certainly some of the best pizza anywhere!

I like the pizza at the new Nick's Place in Saugus Center. However, it can be difficult to eat when the crust is so thin and soft at the center, not self supporting!

Rainy Days

Cold, rainy days like today make being indoors more enjoyable for me. Speaking of rainy days, I read somewhere only 1 out of 3 days are mostly sunny here in the Boston area, a stark contrast to sunny Florida.

Living in the often bleak New England weather conditions makes me appreciate warm sunny days. Wet conditions can make photography a bit more interesting too.

Batteries and HDMI cables, at a good price!

I thought I'd give a new blog a try. I had a blog a while ago here on blogspot, but it never went anywhere. This blog will serve as an outlet for whatever I decide to write about.
It might be photography, or slide scanning or local Saugus stuff.

Maybe I'll use it to complain about the weather or the price of oil. Maybe I'll share some new bargains I've discovered on the Web.

Speaking of bargains, most of us lots of AA and 9 volt batteries around the house. There's never a good set around when you need it. Or, you've got a drawer full of half dead ones, and no battery tester.

Several months ago I needed a slew of 9 volts to refill smoke detectors. After about 33 seconds of a discriminatory search of the Web, I found

The per battery cost is MUCH lower than you ever find at local stores. The online ordering was easy and quick. Batteries were in my mailbox 2 days later. Shipping is less than $5.00, no matter the weight! After the first good experience ordering batteries there, I ordered 32 more AA batteries the other day. Once again, fast shipping, good price, no complaints. Did I mention the batteries are Duracell Alkaline?

HDMI Cables Price Gouging:
Many of you techno geeks are probably in need of HDMI cables for your new HDTV, cable box, Blue Ray player, Playstation 3 etc.
Some places are charging OUTRAGEOUS prices for HDMI cables. Average in-store prices run from about $15.00 to over $120.00 for the same product. A cable, is a cable, is a cable. If it's got gold plated contacts great. If it's got a heavy duty sheathing over it, it's a monster! Does that affect performance? No.

A quick search on should bring up HDMI cables for as little as $2.00 each.
