Davy Crockett a.k.a Fess Parker
Decker Way and I have fond memories of the legendary Davy Crockett, and both of us owned Davy Crockett hats and on my 7th birthday I even got a Davy Crockett cake. Today if Davy Crockett was on TV PETA would probably force the…Continue

I am going to make this short and sweet. People magazine's new issue has brand new-mom Jessica Simpson on the front cover with daughter Maxwell. I am so happy that baby and mother are doing fine but what I am perturbed about is this constant airbrushing of real people for magazines.…Continue

Growing up in the small town of Cowansville Quebec you did what you could for summer entertainment. Your picks were the local swimming pool, neighbourhood kids, and the Princess Theatre for movies. Because the town was small we seemed to get the big movies later than the rest of the world - but 50 cents and a warning to be quiet was a sure fire way to put a smile on your face.…Continue
No matter how many years you have been out of High School there will always be a few students that you will remember for being different. These aren't the kids that were smart or athletic; it's the kids that walked down their own highway no matter what the consequences.
"Roads ... where we're going, we don't need roads." - Marty McFly from Back to the…Continue
Star Wars! 1977!
This movie was like no other movie I had ever seen. This was a movie for us! I was a teenager semi-obsessed with Sci-Fi “space operas”.
As soon as I saw the trailer, I couldn't wait for this movie to come to…Continue

About ten years ago I web-met (is that a verb?) A young children’s writer and artist, Valerie Melville. We were both nominees for awards in EPIC (Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition) http://www.epicorg.com
Valerie has social skills that I lack. It would never have occurred to me to write her. She was obviously friends with many other EPIC members and she was obviously young. In my experience young writers who have fans don’t socialize with…Continue
In this week's weird news an Israeli man finally had enough after having to replace the cat door for a fifth time. According to the Times of Israel, when his wife brought in cats numbers 549 and 550- enough was enough!…Continue
Memorial Day is a day to remember those who served in the military past and present. It is also a long weekend meant for family gatherings, the Indy 500 and garage sales.
I hope we never fail to remember those who gave up their lives for our freedom. May we also not forget the things that we bought, built and then gave away.
Like Easter Peeps, this…Continue

People who are soldiers bring their fighting skills to the battle field foremost, but they also bring themselves. They are our talented children, our fathers, our sons, the members of our families. We have watched them, rejoiced in their efforts, achievements and their talents. We have experienced their love, their imprint on us. They bring this to the battlefield and when they fight, they are colored by their talents and their experiences. They follow their mission to the best of their…Continue

Men in Black 3 opens up this weekend but do aliens and UFOs exist in real life? Apparently since the 1950's; men dressed in black suits complete with sunglasses visit the homes of those who have said they have spotted UFO's.
I have read stories detailing events with Men In Black that date all the way back to medieval times. Supposedly, it is a massive cabal intent on hiding or covering up any UFO, supernatural, or paranormal activities. Now, this might prove that it…Continue
