The A-Team

Well it doesn't generate the visceral excitement that the weekly show did. That may be due to the fact that my viscera have changed in almost thirty years. It also may be due to the fact that they try to tie everything up from the show and the movie.

Is it me, or did it seem like Liam Neeson was trying more for a saner version of Dennis Hopper, rather than George Peppard.

Merry and Happy Everyone!

I want everyone to feel as good as I do right now.

Even Democrats and Hippies!

sorry for not sharing!

I have been blessed by the open hand of God!

A little over six months ago, I had everything I had ever striven for, woman, child, happily ever after, reft away from me by a senseless event. I was ready, willing even, to just curl up and die. A few good friends out in the blogs, wouldn't let me. They offered what comfort they could. A few went beyond and kept me occupied, if not exactly sane.

And because I kept the Faith, I now have my new love lying beside me.

I have been given a second chance.

I'm going to work and act like I deserve it!

kindle, iPad? Naaaahhhh

What I want for Xmas is that NewsPad thingy that Arthur C Clarke figured out for 2001 A Space Odyssey. Basically a Kindle on steroids. With a video cellphone thrown in for shits and grins. In less than 25 years we got everything from Star Trek, The Next Generation, except Warpdrive, and the Transporter. We still haven't scored the replacement for books, newspapers, videophones and TVs yet. And our brightest mind conceived this in what? 1968! Or 1965 if the initial production had it!

Probably my first actual case of covet.

I still want one!
