Home Alone Turns 30: Feeling Old Yet?
November 4, 2020
You didn't read that wrong, it has been 30 years since Home Alone hit theaters. Wow! How the time does fly. 30 years ago our household had barely gotten a VHS player, and now in 2020 all Blockbusters are gone save one in Australia. If you experienced the first Home Alone movie in theaters back in 1990 or 1991, kudos to you. You grew up, or aged, having ...
Palm Springs Movie Review (2020)
August 29, 2020
Don't let the graphic of two people floating down a lazy river with a couple drinks in hand fool you into thinking this is a lazy, laid back, date night comedy movie. It isn't.

September 12, 2020
I didn't want to be on the roads far away from home after dark, so we decided we would leave around 4pm. We actually got going around 3:30pm, but it took 30 minutes to pack up and make a couple trips up to the car. After the first trip the guard at the entry point wasn't going to let me re-enter, saying the beach was closed. I explained best I could that ...
A Ski Day at Snowbowl, December 18th 2020
December 19, 2020
Since the lifts started running at the Snowbowl Ski resort outside Flagstaff Arizona, a few hours from my home, I decided it was time to get up there. They installed a new lift this year since the old main Agassiz lift broke at the end of last year, and I wanted to check it out and get some runs in. I got up early but was a bit disorganized with it being t...
