I’m glad to see the ThunderCats  still out there fighting the likes of Mumm-Ra.  (Picture taken on August 3, 2009, Cameron, Arizona)

Thunder thunder thunder ThunderCats. Ho!


This blog…

December 13, 2009

is terrible. I haven’t posted since September. The blog has become a quarterly. Sweet. I just heard about the swarm of 500,000 birds in Sacramento the other day. This fascinated me.
I found this sweet video on starlings swarming near Oxford, England. Beginning at the 3:18 point simply amazes me. Is this really happening? Are those real birds?

On another note.  I really like the auto-tune remix of “Charlie bit me.”  I find this really catchy and cool.

Andy Roddick

September 6, 2009

Andy Roddick was bounced by John Isner yesterday in the US Open. I thought he was going to be able to go deep in the draw this year. I was wrong. I took some video of A-Rod serving up some aces to Sam Querrey in Mason, Ohio. He came up short that day too.

Cincinnati Open 2009

August 29, 2009

The US Open Series brought its game to Mason, Ohio a couple weeks back. I was fortunate to get some tickets from my neighbor back home. I attended the women’s tournament on a Thursday and the men’s on a Monday and Tuesday. I saw Jelena Jankovic and No. 1 Dinara Safina in separate matches. They both ended up meeting each other in the finals where Jankovic won.

I saw a plethora of great players in the men’s draw including, Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, former No. 1’s Lleyton Hewitt and Marat Safin (Dinara’s brother). Also in attendance were Sam Querrey (he defeated Roddick) and No. 2 doubles team Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic. Roger Federer beat Novak Djokovic in the championship. Nestor and Zimonjic beat the Bryan brothers for the men’s doubles championship.

This has me all jacked up for this year’s US Open.

Check out some of my pictures.

…a bee flying backwards! haha

My friend has inspired me to post.  She called me out along with a few other friends.  So, this one goes out to her.

She enjoys taking trips, going to festivals, hanging out with fungi, and chillaxin’ with wolf spiders.  She is my hero.  Check out some of her sweet pictures of the Wolf Spider and her babies.

She set momma free into the wild, aka EKU’s Ravine.  So, be careful where you sit!

A carpenter bee crossed my path today.  He was just hanging out on a twig.  We hung out for a bit and discussed the weather and food.  He likes wood and bugs.  He was a furry little guy.

“Carl” the carpenter also enjoys music.

His favorite artists are the Bee Gees and Sting.   (Zing!)

Here he is gettin’ jiggy wit it.

A good time was had by all.   We ate, sang and danced.  It was fun.

Reds grounds crew

June 16, 2009

Robyn Habisch, a member of the Cincinnati Reds grounds crew, slipped and fell under the tarp during the Braves vs. Reds rain delay.

Jim Day spoke to Robyn during the delay:

“They’re not going to stop.  It’s pretty slippery.  I just slipped.  I couldn’t keep up with the fellas.  They’re a lot taller than I am.  I held on for a little while…”

Jim asked Robyn for an update on the rain delay, to see if she had word from the head grounds crew.  This is her response.

“Nooope.  (giggles)  Sorry, I have no inside scoop on that, but…..just waiting it out.”

Robyn earned the game ball today.

How I met your mother

June 16, 2009

This always baffled me and thanks to the Family Guy it finally has come to light.

“Why is the voice of the guy from the future Bob Saget? I mean the guy on the show, he’s already an adult, ya know, so it’s not like he’s going to grow into Bob Saget. Doesn’t make sense.”

Seriously.  I feel ya Peter Griffin.

On another note, who is the mother?  Here’s Bob Saget’s take:

“I’m thinking it’s Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby), who in the future is eventually able to become his own mother/father podmaker. Trust me, it’s going to be crazy.”
