Veterans day.jpg

 

Today is a day that we celebrate to show our gratitude for those who have chosen to fight for and serve our country. Many men and women sacrifice their time, family, friends, and so much more in order to be a voice and protective force for our country. Although we should be thankful for these people every day of the year, this is a special day to show our gratitude and to recognize those who make the choice to fight for each and every one of us.

It is that time of year! The weather is cooling. Families and friends gather together in celebration. It’s the beginning of a series of holidays that everyone from children to adults look forward to. This holiday season kicks off in the Mexican culture with a celebration of the lives that now deceased ancestors and loved ones lived while in this world. Beginning on October 31st, All Hallows Eve, children make altars to invite the angelitos back to visit. November 1st, known as All Saints Day, deceased adults are invited to visit. Then we have November 2nd , All Souls Day, where celebrations commence and families gather to honor the lives of the deceased.

HalloweenWitch

It's the scariest time of the year!  The leaves are starting to change color, the air is turning a bit crispy, and the nighttime weather is absolutely bootiful.  All of these conditions are great in and of themselves, but together, they craft a perfect Halloween night.  Combined with candy, scares, and laughs, it's arguably one of the most fun nights of the fall season.

 

Come take a look at my favorite Halloween traditions and tell me about some of your own!

4th of July

4th of julyWhat’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about the 4th of July? The first thing that comes to my mind is planning BBQs with family and friends. But I was thinking the other day as we made plans for the day, that many of us don’t take a moment to reflect what this date really means to us who live in this beautiful country we call the United States of America. How it represents our freedom to do just that: spend time with our family and friends at BBQs, camping, swimming, and watching fireworks or whatever you’ll be doing this 4th of July.

Pirates Banner

Over the years, Disney has been known for making attractions based on their movies at their theme parks. Few attempts have been made so far to make movies based on their existing attractions however. Out of those attempts only one, Pirates of the Caribbean, has become such a huge success, it has in turn inspired changes to the ride it was based on. This year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and the fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Will the force be with you this May 4th?

 

Star Wars.JPGWhen I was a kid, I was always this little ball of excited energy when spring hit; it meant I could go run outside and jump in all the rain puddles, make mud pies, and it was decent enough outside to walk over to the park and play on the swings. Spring also meant my birthday was just around the corner and all my cousins were going to coming over with presents! As an adult-ish person, things have obviously changed somewhat. If you happen to get me a gift, I won’t say no of course, but I like to think I’ve outgrown my childish behavior in that I don’t sling mud at my sister anymore. Now I just like to get together with close friends and family for drinks and some fun games.

Captain Ace Fodder tightly grasps the rail as First Mate Morgana shouts the orders to the rest of the crew.   “Easy does it!  We’re almost to port.” 

 

It had been a long journey, and not an easy one.  He already lost seven crew members to his lucrative cargo, and The Tabatha Tart was already operating on a skeleton crew.   He hopes that the buyer will be generous with his payment.  He makes a mental note to include the lost crewmen when collecting his reward.

 

Suddenly, a large crash can be heard from below, and the ship makes a sudden lurch and begins to groan.  After a moment of silence, screams can be heard, followed by a large crack, as a leathery wing suddenly bursts through the hull of the ship.

Remote Start, or the Joy of a Warm Car

Sticky seats, a steering wheel hot as a frying pan and a cooling system that blows scorching air is at least as unpleasant as a freezing-cold vehicle. As it turns out, remote starters are not just for northerners in winter any more.

Over the last decade or so the kinks of remote start technology have been worked out and additional features have been added to make the functionality even more useful. Following is a breakdown of the four general types of remote start devices available on the market.

My husband has rightfully earned the nickname of Captain Plug-in due to his love of cameras, electronics, and the need to always be prepared. We’ve been using solar powered chargers for last two years during day trips outside, and weekend camping excursions.

Phillips Hue People.jpgShaya slowed as she turned the corner, and she gently placed a hand on the ancient stone wall beside her, carefully crossing the threshold of the corbel arch.  Raising her torch, she stifled a gasp as the gentle glow from the fire spread over the rows and rows of ancient texts and dusty piles of forgotten treasure.  While she knew the value of her mark, the volume “Draculian Arcana”, a large tome of forgotten knowledge that was said to be made of pure gold, she had not expected the sheer volume of what the library held, and that it all seemed to be untouched.  She glanced over at the rest of her party, who were now rounding the corner, and offered them a sly smile, hoping that she might be able to pocket some of the more valuable trinkets without their noticing.  And yet… it all seemed too easy.  Sure, they had to avoid the traps of noxious gases and poisons, but she could scarcely believe that all this treasure would remain untouched for so many eons. 

 

She was about to say as much, when Dimitri placed gloved finger to his lips, his crossbow aimed past her.  And then, she heard it.  A strange, faint, slithering sound.  She raised the torch higher, her eyes groping into the darkness, searching for the source of the sound.  But, it was too late.  She felt a sense of dread begin to fill her, as she realized that whoever (or WHATever) was making the noise would surely alerted of their presence by her light.

I look up as a voice from the other end of the table cuts through my thoughts- “Roll for initiative.”

It’s no mystery to anyone I’m a Star Trek fan. I loved the show in all its incarnations. I’ve adored all of the films (even Star Trek V: The Final Frontier had its virtues). So when it came time for the franchise reboot in 2009, I had hope and faith that J.J. Abrams would keep the spirit alive and give us fans a treat that we could cherish as part of the venerable Gene Roddenberry’s legacy and gift to the world. My words on exiting the theater when Star Trek was released seven years ago? “That’ll do!”

During the trip, we made a stop in Marceline, Missouri - where Walt Disney had considered his hometown. While Disneyland was celebrating their 60th anniversary, I was learning about Walt’s childhood, and the part that the town of Marceline played in inspiring his theme parks and movies. Now as Disneyland is celebrating their 61st year and the twelfth and newest Disney Park - Shanghai Disneyland - has been open officially for about a month, I look at how everything that Walt dreamt and created has meant to me.

I honestly had no idea what I was getting into a year and a half ago, when my girlfriend Heather and I asked her parents to stop at Petco to pick up some food for our cats. We go in, get the cat food, check out, and on our way out of the store we see a man holding a puppy. Heather asks the man if she can pet the puppy he’s holding. The man turns back to her saying you can have her for $100. Heather had been looking for a dog for a while so she got pretty excited by this offer. One hundred dollars later and we were walking right back into Petco with our new puppy to buy dog food and all the other stuff you need to raise a puppy.Whistle.jpg

All hail to the mothers. The creators of life, the nurturers, and the one we can always count on no matter what. You have to admit, Mothers juggle a lot within their everyday lives. In between working, being a maid, chef, psychiatrist, tutor, and protector (whew, I’m getting tired just thinking about all of it). I think it’s only accurate to compare them to duct tape as they seem to have the ability to fix anything! Mothers are selfless, dedicated and invested in everyone else’s happiness, they deserve every bit of celebration for the one day of the year dedicated to them.

Leap Year.jpgWe take the calendar for granted. We all manage our lives hour by hour, day by day, week by week, but we seldom consider the truly strange thing that the measurement of time actually is. For example: do you know how Election Day is reckoned? How about knowing when Easter will occur, and why it will happen when it happens?

 

You know, the day isn’t even as long as you think it is; it’s shorter by four minutes. This adds up to a quarter day every year, or a whole day every four. More or less. Kind of. Maybe.

 

To reconcile this incongruity, every fourth year (except in certain centuries) is a Leap Year. Why a “leap” year? Well, because in common years, the advancement of the calendar puts fixed-date holidays on subsequent weekdays each year, i.e., Christmas is on Tuesday, then Wednesday the next year, then Thursday, etc. In leap years, Christmas would “leap” over Thursday to Friday.
