Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

Saturday , 31, January 2015 Comments Off on Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

I’m finally beginning to feel human again, after a week of whatever this cold/flu illness was that I had. I’ve still got a bit of cough and congestion and I’m still feeling very tired, but at least I don’t have all those things magnified along with the aches, fever and headache I went through most […]

Throwback Thursday – Disney-MGM Studios In 2007

Thursday , 29, January 2015 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – Disney-MGM Studios In 2007

Today’s Throwback Thursday is from January 27, 2007 when my daughter and two oldest grandchildren, Mikey and Heather, visited the Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World. A year later, on January 7, 2008, the park would be renamed Disney Hollywood Studios.

I woke up with a nasty cold Saturday morning. It was to be expected as we had watched Abby a couple of days last week when she could not go to daycare because of a cold she had. Granddad just had to share. We did our usual thing Saturday morning of getting up early to […]

Throwback Thursday – EPCOT

Thursday , 22, January 2015 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – EPCOT

Six years ago this week Cindy and I were at EPCOT with Jeremy and Wendy having a great time.

On Monday, January 12th, Cindy, her parents, and I spent the morning at the Disney Animal Kingdom. It’s been a few years since any of us had been, so it was fun to go back and see the old attractions as well as getting to see some of the new ones. Here are some photos […]

Great News For 2015 – Jack Kirby Biography Coming

Sunday , 18, January 2015 Comments Off on Great News For 2015 – Jack Kirby Biography Coming

Mark Evanier, who probably knows more about the man outside of his own children and grandchildren, indicates that he will be (hopefully) completing a biography of the late, great, comic book artist and writer, Jack “King” Kirby this year. Kirby passed away 21 years ago next month. Evanier writes that he has almost 250,000 words […]

Happy 5th Birthday, Jade!

Saturday , 17, January 2015 Comments Off on Happy 5th Birthday, Jade!

My youngest granddaughter, Jade, was born on this date in 2010. We’re thankful for technology like Skype that has let us see and talk to her at her home in San Antonio every couple of weeks over the past year. Here’s a photo of me holding her when she was an infant. Happy Birthday Jade! […]

Favorite Comic Book Covers – Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #81

Friday , 16, January 2015 Comments Off on Favorite Comic Book Covers – Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #81

This issue is cover dated February 1968 which means it was actually released in December 1967, as most comic books were cover dated 2 months in advance of their publication. So let’s get the first and most obvious thought out of everyone’s mind; it was NOT the possible death of Lois Lane that attracted me […]

Could You Live Without Wi-Fi?

Friday , 16, January 2015 Comments Off on Could You Live Without Wi-Fi?

The presence of wi-fi and what it makes available to our electronic devices, and thus to us, is pretty ubiquitous. If you have it in your home you take it for granted and when you are out and about you generally assume that you will find a free wi-fi signal somewhere (ignoring the security concerns) […]

Back on January 16, 2010, we took our granddaughter Heather (with her mom) and George and Caroline’s daughter Rowan (with her mom) to Disney Hollywood Studios for the day. Here they are with the Sorcerer’s Hat in the background, a landmark which has recently been removed.
