Well, the postman finally decided to deliver the mail that accumulated while I was on vacation. One of the items I was waiting for (in fact, the main item I was waiting for) was my Pimsleur Indonesian CDs.

While on my recent vacation, I happened to pass through Groom, Texas. As I did so, I saw the GIGANTIC cross that this town is home to. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a good picture of it as I passed through (I didn’t stop to get a more stable picture), but fortunately a lady […]

A toy packaged with candy to be sold to children in central Florida depicts the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Parents, stores, and even the candy company are outraged and have pulled the toy from their shelves. However, the import company that brought the toy into the U.S. and sold it to the […]

You know those scenes on Star Trek where somebody (the doctor, the captain) orders somebody else (the captain, another officer) to take his vacation?
