Urgent Public Service Annoucement
Think the median in the middle of the road makes it hard now to get in and out of Collector's Edition?
You won't believe what the city is about to do next.
Your letters are working (see the bottom of the page linked above)!
Wednesday, August 6th, NLR road crews came by around Noon to look at the problem with the bushes,
saying that they'd "gotten a lot of complaints."
They immediately saw what was shown in the video,
but said they "Will have to come back to work on them later in the day, when it's less dangerous."
They did, and I appreciate it. I thank the city, and the alderman who encouraged it.
The view when leaving now is still not great, but it is greatly improved.
But they couldn't have summed up better the improbability of pedestrian traffic on Park Hill.
If it's too dangerous for professional road crews to work, would you really take the kids there for walk?
Watch all the videos, mine and Channel 11 -- and you'll never see a single pedestrian.
Jump Start is a plan for phantom demand.
This book is real and unaltered. The top quote is from the text.
The bottom quotes are some of the most common from the era of the Second Doctor, Patrick Trouton.
It was a runing gag that Jaimie, a medieval Highlander whom Doctor had saved,
would start each new adventure with a brogue variation of:
"Doctor! Would you look at the size of that thing."
At some point soon after, they were running for their lives.
All of the Doctors often advised; "Run! Run!"
If you've never been introduced to Doctor Who, or only seen shows from the New Millennium, the older mythos can be difficult to know where to start -- with so many decades of television history to choose from!
I recently dove into this past, and here's my Guide for new viewers:
The next Comics History page is devoted to the legendary Carl Barks.
Carl Barks was always one of my favorite storytellers, being both an exceptional artist and extraordinary storyteller. It was a rare combination.
If you'd like a quick tour of the career of the man who, because he worked in an age before printed credits, was known as The Good Duck Artist, all you have to do is click this link: Disney Ducks!
I've added another section to try and dispell a common misconception about the comic book industry.
Comic Book Store owners always get a bad rap, as the public perception is that we're all like the rude, Simpson's Comic Book Store Guy, lazing around, surrounded by nothing but food and big stacks of Super-Hero comics.
Like a Super-Hero, my other hobbies involve a mask and breathing apparatus, specialized training that includes rescue, dangerous activities and encounters with deadly animals, plus travel around the world to exotic locations, including a trip down the road to a lost civilization.
These are the incredible, but true adventures of a masked Comic Book Store Guy:
We've all heard of Good Luck Charms.
Here are my experiences in surviving an extremely potent Bad Luck Charm.
Decades ago I read a comment by award-winnning science-fiction and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, who refered to writing as an act of exorcism.
Nothing here to do with publishing or such. This page is a community service where I share, for the benfit of others, my experiences in dealing with lightning, felled trees and insurance companies. Even included a recent tornado experience.
