The official 2010 NFL season is scheduled to kick off on Thursday, September 9, but you can start the season tomorrow with the gaming industry’s most highly-anticipated sports title, Madden NFL 11! This game is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Portable for your football fix on the go.
This edition of Madden is expected to be the simplest, quickest and deepest one to date. Its new GameFlow system allows you to control the quarterback and execute an authentic NFL game plan one play at a time. You can customize and use your own offensive and defensive game plans, or execute the plays based on your favorite team’s real-life tendencies for an authentic game.

When was the last time you watched a home movie recorded on a VHS? You probably want to take a stroll down memory lane and watch your old wedding tape, holiday vacation, or kids playing in the backyard, but may not have a VCR. Now, with the ION Audio VCR2PC you can conveniently store these movies on your computer and access them whenever you want! You can even store them on your iPod, mobile phone, and other portable devices.
The VCR2PC hooks into your computer via USB and sends both audio and video straight to your computer. The EZ VHS Converter software can then convert it to store on DVD, iPod, PSP and more, or just store them in a folder on your machine and pull up clips on demand. The VCR2PC can also work as a standard VCR, so you can always watch your original VHS tapes.

Have you noticed recently that your dryer is just not drying your clothing as quickly as it used to? It may not mean that you need a brand new unit, but just need to give your current model a tune-up. You should inspect your dryer once a year to make sure everything is running efficiently! This could save you money over time.
Note: To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug the dryer from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
Clean the Lint Trap
As you probably already know, the lint trap at the front of your machine should be cleaned after each use. You should also wash the filter with warmy soapy water every once in a while.

I was a big fan of Swedish pop singer Robyn when she had a hit single in the 90’s called Show Me Love. Little did I know that while the United States’ Top 40 charts had essentially forgotten about her after that, she continued to perform in Europe. I was excited to hear that she was performing at our theater, and even sang Show Me Love at the performance!
200 fans won tickets through iheartradio and our P.C. Richard & Son Theater website to see an intimate performance of 7 songs, including Cry When You Get Older, Dancing On My Own (a new favorite of mine), Hang With Me, Show Me Love, Sleeping With a Broken Heart, Be Mine, and With Every Heartbeat. Check out her performance of Dancing On My Own after the jump. I guarantee you won’t be able to get it out of your head!
