About ME
(Damn it!)








I threw a classic in the VCR the other day so I could watch it with one of my kids.  The flick was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  Great movie.  I was admiring the quite beautiful Alison Doody, and decided to do a search to see what she's been doing since Crusade.  As the link will show, not much. 

 Jump forward about 2 weeks, (and 10 years in her career, since her last movie).  I'm channel surfing and swing by the Hallmark Network, where the 2004 remake of King Solomon's Mine is airing.  I briefly forgot that I had seen the title listed in her resume.  When Alison graced the screen all I can say is WOW.  Face it, there aren't many women that get better looking with age (and kids), but holy cow did she age well.  I highly recommend the movie, if for no other reason than to see what I am talking about.... absolutely stunning.  (And the movie isn't too bad.  Patrick Swayze has come a long way since Roadhouse.)

There is a downside though.... she refuses to do nude scenes. 

Who says being a pain in the ass doesn't pay off (By the way, if you're not a dork, this will mean nothing to you.):

Thank you for contacting Hasbro, Inc.

Our website never posted the sixth "Easter Egg". The final one is one of the most obvious ones - if R2 is in a sad mode, when you activate the dance program, he does a sad version of the Cantina song. We will look to update our website with that information.

We want to assure you that we are dedicated to maintaining quality products and service. We hope you and your family will continue to enjoy our products for many years to come.

Again, thank you for contacting us. 

Lois, you rock!


It was a big day yesterday.  My girlfriend taught me three things.

1.  Detective Olivia Benson is the product of a rape.  (Which explains her zealousness when it comes to rape cases.)

2.  When the sun comes through the clouds during a rainstorm it is referred to as "The devil beating his wife".  I always thought that's what BTE was saying in "Cry in the Sun", but it didn't make any sense to me.  Until now.

3.  In a plural possessive, the apostrophe comes after the "s".  (I didn't pay a lot of attention in high school.)

You're never too old to learn something new.  The most I brought to the table was that Mariska Hargitay had posed nude.

Just a quick update to remind you of some other stuff on the site. (We get some page hits from the search engines that don't always land people where they want to be, so consider this a bit of a site map, if you will.)

What's up with the memorial box for David Cosner?  Looking for info on the R2-D2 Interactive Droid?  Check out the review here, and Easter Egg info in the NAQWe were K9s once, and youngMy Dad: The Crazy Bike Riding DoctorJust because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they aren't after you.  Hate them all you want, but the Yankees are good for baseballAnd details on my new weekend job.

It's probably too early to say this is really cool, but the pictures they have at White Box Robotics seem to hold a lot of promise.  From what I've managed to lift, they're designed with the Via Epia series of motherboards in mind, with Evolution Robotics software running under Windows XP.  I have a few work related ideas for the HMV version, if I can talk the boss into it!  (Check out this quick blurb on
