History is important

I have never visited France, and hence I have never seen Notre Dame up close. As I watched the news, however, it reminded me so much of York Minster, that I couldn’t help but think of that unbelievable slice of English religious history. Over the course of all my trips to the U.K., my primary… read more

As much as I want to visit Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge when it opens at Disneyland or Disney World, it is clear it is going to be insane when it comes to crowds. Just how insane? There will be bathroom passes to get out of line for the rides and use the facilities. You will… read more

On Tuesday I needed to shut down some servers used by my work. I figured this would be answer a few security questions, request, confirm, and done. Three hours. Three hours of my life are gone to shutting these servers down. Why did it take so long? Well, to make sure you want this done… read more

I’m over this

It’s March 3. This stuff should be ending. But nope, it was below zero last night and we got a light dusting of snow today. And guess what, more snow is coming this week. Yes, I know I live in Northern Missouri, but I am so over this winter. I can’t remember the last time… read more

I try very hard to not get sick. I wash my hands constantly. I think about what I’m touching such as doors. I try my best to avoid it happening because it’s inconvenient to a lot of people. One luxury I do have, however, is I work from home. So when I do get sick,… read more

I am so over winter

Enough. I’m done. On Saturday I ran into town with my father for groceries. It was our first run in some time due to snow… then ice… then more snow on the way. Due to ice this past week, I have not seen my mail or UPS delivery folks since last Monday despite my having… read more

It seems that Generation X may be on its way to being the forgotten generation at this point. While speaking with my mother last week I asked a somewhat rhetorical question about what happened to Generation X. “What’s happened? It’s as if you aren’t a Baby Boomer or a Millenial you just don’t matter and… read more

As with each year, Comic-Con was filled with trailers. I’ve decided to take my time working my way through them this year to let that “WOOOOOO!” feeling wear off. With that being said… Aquaman didn’t get better with time. There is absolutely nothing original in this trailer. “Oh no, if you don’t accept the throne… read more

Accepting Age

Those of you that follow me on social media know that today, July 20, is my birthday. I hit 47 today, and I am quickly learning that age sucks. I attended day 1 of San Diego Comic-Con on July 19. Around 4:36pm Pacific I found myself suffering from heat exhaustion as I walked through the… read more

As you walk around Manchester, United Kingdom you will see iconography of a bee everywhere you go. There’s a reason for that. From Wikipedia: The worker bee was adopted as a motif for Manchester during the Industrial Revolution, at a time when Manchester was taking a leading role in new forms of mass production. Seven… read more

If you read more than a few Marvel comics in the late 1970s and early 1980s, you are almost guaranteed to have read an issue written by Bill Mantlo. Even if you didn’t read comics back in that time period, you have recently been introduced to his work as he was the creator of Rocket… read more

The Events in Newtown, CT

Today is not the day for me to post a movie trailer or obsess over the minutia of a television show. I have opted to run the same image with this post that I ran for the Aurora, CO shootings because the only images I could find of the tragedy in Newtown, CT showed the… read more
