The second iteration of the end of the year's holidays is over; Halloween was the first (I celebrate it as Celtic New Year's Eve), Thanksgiving was the second (should I throw Armistice/Veteran's Day in the mix?). I gathered up my younger sons and traveled to my eldest son's in-laws; a fine family with fun adults and oodles of children under foot. This year I'm proud to say I remembered all the men's names, and half the women's. We sat around, watched the hated Steelers get mauled in football (go Seahawks! We were ripped off!), had two different styles of turkey (one with a hint of garlic), and celebrated the new children in the family.
Yes, family. That was the thankful part. I realise that my son's wife could have had monsters for kin, but she didn't. We are from different social stratas; it didn't matter. We were welcomed.

"So, Mike, why the hate?" That's why I added that hate was too strong. I'm a grump, from a family of grumps. Holidays annoy me....

In comparison with an earlier sketch-up "Concept One, Triplanetary," this image is hands-down superior. The distance fade is definitely...


For this photograph the first word that popped into my mind was "elemental," and that description sticks with me even now. Earth: the r...


=mary-chan has caught the classiness of Morena Baccarin's character and her beauty, in a style that is totally in tune with Joss Whedon...

I found out you died awhile back and I was speechless. I know we never spoken often more so just comment on each other's work, but I'll admit I looked forward to reading your comments because they were encouraging and sometimes a slap of reality. I hope you are in a better place and enjoying your self random kind stranger.
