The word that most accurately describes my wife and me tonight is impatient! Why? Because we are anxiously awaiting for Elevated Engineering to release their clothing merchandise to the public. The Elevated Engineering store is reported to start selling their shirts sometime on March 26, 2010, which is today for my readers who do not have a calendar handy! So I suggest you take a look around their website and visit their online shop and check it out today!
What is Elevated Engineering? That my friend, is a great question. If I was not familiar with the band A Day To Remember, which I have blogged about not once but twice before, I may not know about Elevated Engineering either!
First thing is first, who created Elevated Engineering? Neil Westfall (guitarist and back up vocalist for the band A Day To Remember) and Nick Luvaul both from Florida. The idea for the company had been thought about and in the works since 2005 according to the Elevated Engineering website but it did not spin into fruition and launch until 2010.
Okay, so you want to know more about what Elevated Engineering has to offer? What they are all about? How to find what you are looking for or other details? Well, keep on reading!

I recently wrote a blog about my favorite band A Day To Remember. I gave some background info on the band, their current tour information and ventures and explained why I think they are amazing.
My wife decided to get a ADTR tattoo last week and I have to say when someone is willing to tattoo a bands symbol, name, album cover or anything like that, the music itself really speaks to the individual on a personal level. She did not get “ADTR” or “A Day To Remember” tattooed underneath it quite yet in hopes of when they stop in Cincinnati on tour next month someone from the band can write it for her and then she can have it tattooed like that.
Take a moment to imagine yourself sitting in your car singing along to your favorite band. What band is it that you imagined yourself listening to? Could you hear the lyrics to your favorite song streaming through your mind?
When I imagine the above scenario in my mind I can hear the music loud and clear and the band I am imagining is A Day To Remember. If you have not heard of A Day To Remember I suggest you open up a new tab on your browser and immediately visit the Official ADTR Myspace Page and sample some of their music.
My wife an I were fortunate enough to not only see this amazing band at local concert venue in May 2009 we also were lucky enough to have the band sign our CD and chat with us for a few before they hopped back on their tour bus to head to their next tour stop. A couple months later ADTR was on Warped Tour and taking phone calls live on a Say It Now phone service, we were lucky enough to get to chat for a few and wished my wife a happy birthday. Later that month in July 2009 at Cincinnati Warped Tour we had VIP passes from Music Saves Lives (earned by donating blood, standing in line 6 hours before the gates opened and being within the first hundred to find the booth the bracelets were located in). We decided to use the passes to hang out “backstage” where ADTR was preparing for their show, a couples of the band members had remembered us from before and at the last minute before the ran up the ramp to perform live Neil asked us if we wanted to stand on the side of the stage! That was the experience of a lifetime. If you have never seen ADTR in concert before and you enjoy their music they really put on an amazing show!

After thoroughly enjoying a few days of sunshine I awoke to a gloomy, cloudy and rainy day here in Ohio. To brighten up my day a bit, my wife Tiffany decided to take me on a 20 mile road trip to Cincinnati for some delicious bubble tea. While drinking my bubble tea on the car ride home I found myself wondering how many people have no idea what bubble tea actually is. I am quite sure many of my readers are thinking in their minds “what in the world is bubble tea?”. With the realization in mind that there are many individuals who are not familiar with this tasty drink, I thought writing an informational blog entry on bubble tea would be a great way to introduce the drink to unfamiliar readers!
I first discovered bubble tea three years ago while living in Cincinnati, Ohio. I found myself inside of a small family owned restaurant called Tea N’ Bowl. I spotted on their menu this drink called “bubble tea”, I was utterly confused and skeptical over the supposed deliciousness of this drink. After a bit of hesitation I ordered my first bubble tea and shortly following my first sip, I was hooked!
I am sure some readers are still wondering what exactly bubble tea consists of, where it originated from, or possibly where they can buy a cup of it! Continue reading for more information and pictures on this enticing and mysterious beverage!
Sitting on my back patio the sun is glaring off of the screen of my laptop and warming my skin, there is a slight breeze in the air, birds are chirping and it seems as if they are declaring the spring is just right around the corner. This is the time of year in Ohio that the weather teases your senses with unseasonably warm temperatures. It is currently 66 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze here in Hamilton.
Directly behind me is a pool that is of course out of commission until Summer. It serves as a constant reminder that although it is not for a few more months, but nonetheless Summer will once again return allowing me to search through my closet to find my flip-flops, swimsuit and tank tops. I yearn for road trips with the windows rolled down, the music turned up, the trees and plants that will again come to life and flourish. Eating freshly grown tomatoes and sweet corn on the cob, having cook outs, splashing around in the pool and sitting outside in the warmth are activities I have waited to partake in again all winter long. All it took was a spike in the local temperature to bring those thoughts up again and to maximize my desire for summer to arrive.
Thoughts of summer also intensify my desire to suspend again when the warm weather arrives. For any of my readers who are unsure what a suspension is I will elaborate on the topic to explain. I am not an expert on body suspensions nor am I claiming to be, I am merely an individual that is interested in body suspensions and have personally suspended twice.
