This is my last weekend in Arkansas and today was my last day to get a chance to visit the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock. I’ve never visited the official library and museum of ANY American President, so it was fitting that the first one I visit belong to one […]

Thursday , 29, May 2014 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – Hurricane Charley, 2004

Since this Sunday is the official start of the 2014 Hurricane Season (are YOU prepared?)

I just finished watching Apollo 18 on Netflix while doing some research. I’m glad I had the research to keep my mind occupied because I would have been bored out of my skull otherwise.

After work this afternoon I rushed to the closest theater showing X-Men: Days Of Future Past, got my ticket and settled in with about 150 other movie-goers to watch the latest incarnation of the mutant franchise on the silver screen.
