The Ultimate Connection

 

Wi-Fi is a beautiful thing, and I know I’m going to have a whole new appreciation for it when I’m deployed overseas in a just few short months. While I’m not totally sure what to expect on my first deployment, I do know I should have access to Wi-Fi most evenings, and I’ll be itching to get in touch with people back home.

National Superhero Day

BOOM! WHACK! POW! Everyone dust off that mask, get your cape from the cleaners, and shine your Infinity Gauntlet, it’s Superhero day! How could it have come at any better time than right after the opening weekend of the fourth installment of the Avengers series, Avengers: Endgame? I haven’t had the chance to see it yet, but I am going to get to the theater sometime this week! No spoilers!

Theodore was certain that he was about to crack this case. He carefully walked around the cozy tavern room, ensuring that no piece of evidence was missed. There were inky handprints outside of the door. There were no signs of forced entry. The curtains around the bed were pulled back, yet the bed seemed to be undisturbed. The Duchess’ trunks remained untouched, however, she, and the document she carried, had seemingly disappeared. All signs pointed that this crime was committed by someone who was inside the tavern and was carefully watching for their time to act. Struck by a sudden realization, Theodore reached underneath the bed.

 

“I wouldn’t do that, if I were you.” A shadow crept from behind him, and he thought he could make out a faint smile beneath the stranger’s hood.

 

“Roll for Initiative.”

Give The Kids Eggs-actly What They Want This Year!

When you think about it, Easter traditions are pretty odd. We paint boiled eggs and make children take photos with a human-sized rabbit, for example. WEIRD. Regardless, these traditions and many more bring families and friends together for the holiday.

 

I love Easter, and of course my favorite part of the holiday growing up was hunting for my Easter basket. I’m sure most kids will say the same, and if you’re responsible for putting one together, it can be tricky deciding what you want to include in a basket youngsters work so hard to find.

Earth Day

by on ‎04-14-2019 09:56 AM

Big things are coming in the year 2020 and it’s clear Best Buy is on track to reach it’s goal of reducing our footprint on the environment.  I’m honored to work for a company who is constantly making strides to make this world a better place for all of us, especially the generations to come.  Hearing this news from an employee is great, but let’s take a look at all of the progress Best Buy has made this far!

 

Newsweek Green ranked Best Buy #27 on the top 500 U.S. companies, which was 8 spots up from 2015.  In April 2016 Best Buy announced we’d have 1,000 Toyota Prius C  hybrids across the nation as our new Geekmobile’s.  This would effectively cut 50 percent of emissions over the previous vehicle’s that were driven by our Geek Squad and it was estimated these vehicle’s would reduce approximately 250,000 gallons of gasoline and almost five million pounds of CO2.  This paved the way for 2017, and it was awesome to see even more work is being done everyday!

Late in 2017, Best Buy was awarded a spot on the CDP Climate A List, earning recognition as a global leader in address climate change.  We’re doing our best to reduce our carbon emissions by 60 percent by 2020 (over a 2009 baseline) and achieve a carbon neutrality by the year 2050.  Between 2017 and 2018 we collected 178 million pounds of electronics for recycling, bringing our total to 1.7 billion pounds since 2009, and there are always more great things in the works!

Have a wonderful Earth Day, and have the peace of mind knowing this big technology company is doing everything in it’s power to save our environment, all while still giving you the latest and greatest in the technology available!

My Deployment 'Gotta Have It' List - #5

So far my ‘Gotta Have It’ list includes products that would support my mental and emotional health while deployed - a digital recorder, headphones, chargers, and a Kindle. Well, I have to say that physical health is also very important to me, and it’s crucial not to overlook items that could support this aspect while overseas as well. In this case, I’m not referring to workout gear (although Best Buy has a wide range of great cardio and strength training equipment) since I’m not concerned about fitness being an issue with facilities available. Also, I don’t think I could lug a NordicTrack treadmill around airports…
