Its Been a Little Quiet

So if you noticed, its been over a month since I had a post on my blog.  Well the reason for that?  We had a new baby boy introduced into our family.  Since this is our first child, life has been a little hectic.  Between keeping the kid from crying, we have been dealing with Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Hopefully, I will be having more time to dedicate to this blog again.

Phoenix Comicon 2013 – May 23-26

It’s a little early but the Phoenix Comicon crew have begun announcing special guests for the ‘Con. Folks from Stargate, Babylon 5, and the Walking Dead will be making an appearance at the Phoenix Convention Center. This will be the second year that I will have the pleasure to go to. If you have never been to a Comicon before, you don’t know what you are missing. There will be a lot of people taking part in cosplay (aka wearing a costume of your favorite comic book hero/villain).

Current State of Affairs Between Humanity, Avengers, and X-Men/Mutants

Having just finished reading the Marvel series “Avengers vs X-Men and all of its sub-stories, I have really found myself at a loss with the status of the X-Men.  To recap basically what happen, The Phoenix force came down to earth, got both the Avengers and X-Men worked up, Phoenix Force was absorbed into five X-Men (Cyclops, Emma Frost, Colossus, Namor, and Magik), Cyclops gains the Phoenix force from the other 4 X-Men, Cyclops kills Professor Xavier, Hope and Scarlet Witch combines to take out Cyclops, Hope absorbs the Phoenix Force, Hope goes and fixes the wrong doings, Scarlet Witch says no more Phoenix, Cyclops is arrested, and there are mutants back on earth.  Phew.

Why Do People Not Take Advantage of Mail-In Balloting

I do not understand why more people do not take advantage of the mail-in balloting process.  Yes voting for President, Senate, and House Representatives are pretty easy.  Everyone has seen the ads and pretty much have made up their mind who they want to vote for.  But there is one component of voting that I am sure will make you think twice…propositions.

BOB Revolution SE Stroller…Is It Worth The Hype (Price)

If you do not know, we are expecting a child.  With a child comes buying baby stuff.  One of the things we are having a tough time with is the stroller.  There are so many options out there from color, style, and frame metal material.  I had made up my mind that I wanted a specific style of stroller…the jogger.  So many times I have seen parents struggle with pushing strollers through gravel, dirt, uneven pavement, and potholes.  Especially in Tucson, there are no smooth roads (just ask my recently departed Monroe Sensa-trac struts on my car).  So I definitely am looking at strollers with larger wheels that is nimble and portable.

Football Football Football

What have we learned in the past few weeks? Football is back! Whether or not its College or the NFL, the excitement of football has taken over the airwaves. The University of Arizona Wildcats football team has made a splash in the PAC-12 and the NFL is in full stride. The excitement of either going to the games or watching the games on Saturday and Sunday is overwhelming. The passion is back.

Welcome Back My Childhood

The past few weeks I have rediscovered my passion as a child: comic books. Its kinda funny that I stopped reading X-Men back in the early 90′s because one of my favorite characters was killed off only to find out that she reincarnated later and have been a staple of X-Men for the past decade.

So if you haven’t heard, apparently every Memorial Day Weekend a pop culture event takes place at the Phoenix Convention Center where nerds, geeks, and other sci-fi/horror buffs come together and play dress up and gobble up “stuff”.  Its called the Phoenix Comicon.

The Joys and Sadness of Finding Replacement Parts

One thing that has been such a pain in the you know what is finding replacement parts for tools.  I was generously given a Ryobi router that has a 1/2″ collet (the opening where you place your bits in) and was excited to go home and finish up some projects.  Low and behold all my bits are 1/4″.  Son of a….
