The Coldest War of All

Our nation’s finest tracking holiday spirit. As I usually do at this time of year, I’m reminding you of where to find Santa and, more specifically, how to track his progress. During the Cold War, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, more popularly known as “NORAD”, stood between us and what we were sure was […]

My Luckiest Friday

At least once a year, I try to write about Friday the Thirteenth. Mostly, because, while other people seem to find it unlucky, I don’t.

Another Friday The Thirteenth

Santa’s On His Way!

He’s been spotting in the Pacific Rim and is headed East toward India, Europe and Africa as I post this.  He’ll be here in United States and Central and South America before you know it! Also?  […]

Halloween LEGO Creations

Well, Halloween is just around the corner, if you aren’t celebrating already. I could go on at length about the historical and cultural phenomena that is Halloween, but, really, if you cared about that, you’d just go to Wikipedia. So, no, instead, I’ll just share a quick fun link to some Halloween LEGO creations over […]
