Another year gone by, another tick mark on the site.  Look for a proper state of the site post in the coming days.  I have some big plans in store, let’s see if you can figure them out.  If not, no worries, it’s nothing drastic that will impact your life more then a few minutes … Continued

Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas everyone.  I hope you have a great time, and I hope those of you with children set up something like this one day in your life.  There’s alot of thought that went into the track, using LEGO as the pillars is a great idea to keep track (pun intended), of the level needed. … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Nakatomi


I’ll let the photo above speak for itself.  Tonight, 27 years ago terrorists took over the Nakatomi building in Century City California.  Their target, $640 million in negotiable bearer bonds.  That’s amazing, even the amount of money stolen still holds up today, it’s not some piss poor $100,000 or similar, it’s well over half a … Continued



Here you can watch over 3 minutes of different takes on Santa from the land of cinema over the years.  I knew where many of them were from, but some were just out there strange.  Oh well, Merry Christmas everyone. {Time}

Petrified Forest


It’s the end of the year, and I haven’t gone to any new National Parks yet.  Yes I did a Grand Canyon trip this past summer, but I’ve already been there, and already been to Bryce Canyon, and Zion.  No, I need to keep up my quota and get to some new ones.  So right … Continued
