Okay you cool nerds who read my blog, do you know what Big Red Ball is? If you said yes, your a stoker. If you said no, it is a company (sort of) that lets you play games at a place, (Celestial Studios on the square) at a time, (7:00 through 9:00) at a date … [Read more…]
We visited Williamsburg, Virginia recently to get a little more vacation time in before the 2010-2011 school year began. While there, we hit Busch Gardens and Water Country using their Summer “Discovery Pass.” It gives you seven consecutive days to visit both parks at your leisure. Aside from $13.00/day/park, the value was tremendous. You can … [Read more…]
My friend, Carlos, brought to my attention Matisyahu a little while back. As of the 25th, he’s released a new album titled “Light” and I’ve just pulled it down off of the Zune Marketplace.

Yanni stands as the hairiest, women-loving man I know [of]…though Hugh Jackman must be at the top of this game too! And on his right is the … [Read more…]
I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available). The card reminded … [Read more…]

I worked with one of the more difficult teaching challenges in my experience yesterday at my drum circle. A gentleman joined us with … [Read more…]
This week’s “The Pain” comic tells the story – probably from my area of the world – of Obama’s election. When I first perused it, I had assumed Mr. Kreider was not a fan of Obama. For this one, you need to read the Artist’s statement which raises the comic wit.

Guess who has the coolest costume on the block? Balthazar does! His best (and only) Uncle-figure went all out and got together a suit of youth Storm Trooper gear for Balthazar this year. He’s been working on it for a while now and it’s finally finished. Sunday, he brought it over … [Read more…]
