Steve Jobs

I’m a Mac-Head, what can I say? Truly sorry to hear that Steve Jobs died today. He’s changed the tools we use in our every day lives and touched so many of us with his innovations. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Ten Years and They are NOT Forgotten

Copyright: (REUTERS/Gary Hershorn)

Still remembering. Still praying. Still watching planes in the sky. Still thinking of those lost. Still hoping for the families of the lost.

It Really WAS a Fairy Tale Wedding!

In case you haven’t seen this floating around the Internet:

WOW! I wonder if Disney got royalties! (I suspect a little color altering, but brilliantly done.) And why does it appear that Lady Mary Crawley has jumped ahead 100 years in the lower-left image?

CBS…Wrong Again

A new book is causing a buzz in the U.K., and news is starting to trickle over the pond to the U.S. Sadly, the ever-accurate-ha-ha CBS has messed it up:

Hmm, it seems to me that we’ve discussed this before. The woman in the picture, and the woman the [...]

The Day After

I'm feeling this big let down.

Yesterday I was 10 minutes shy of being part of a lock down at one of the biggest malls in the United States. Today…nothing, nada, zip. No almost-anything!
