Washington Times - Inside the Ring

Washington Times - Inside the Ring: "The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Wednesday that the United States is vulnerable to attack or other incidents during the presidential transition period and that the military is ready to respond." Echoes of what I've been saying for the past few months.

A real post

I'm going to try to write something other than a simple link, just because I haven't done it for a while. I haven't had a lot of comment on technology, culture, books, etc, recently because most of my blogging has focused on Pennsylvania high school football, most notably North Penn football. You can read my thoughts on Scoreless Tie and Hurrican Blog (which I think was supposed to be about the Bethlehem Liberty Hurricans more than the North Penn Knights).

As I'm writing this, the Phillies are going into the 9th inning, leading the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. A good sign.

Last week I finished reading Mage-Guard of Hamor by L.E. Modesitt. I've enjoyed reading all of the books in Modesitt's Recluce Saga, but I think that Mage-Guard and Natural Ordermage are the best so far.

I will offer a classic amusing cultural link: The Viagra Prank (or as I like to call it, Viagra in church). The Phillies are still at bat in the 9th inning in game 1 of the 2008 World Series. Oh, well, you will know what happened by the time you read this.

Survive a Zombie Apocalypse - Wired How-To Wiki

Survive a Zombie Apocalypse - Wired How-To Wiki Gotta love those zombies. It still blows my mind that Max Brooks is Mel's son. Can you imagine the conversation when the Stillers and the Brooks' get together, "You know our son Ben has been in some of the top grossing comedy movies of the last then years?" "Sure, but Max writes incredible books about zombies. They even optioned World War Z..."

Neat computer tip

Ask Leo: My window is too large and wider than my screen. How to I resize it back? This helped me because I use a 19" LCD monitor at work and have to use my laptop screen on the road. In spite of what my initial post says, this is now going to become a catch-all blog and I am going to limit Scoreless Tie to mostly high school football for the next few months.

Welcome to the Alien Family Blog!

Sometimes I type random blog names in to see what comes up. I kind of liked "alienfamily" so I went ahead and set it up. I think this will be a sci-fi blog, but we'll see how (& if) it goes that way.
