November 7, 2021 Happy Birthday dad. For all the good and all the bad that were the most of Us The smiles and sads along the path were filled with all the fuss. Disney joy and corvette summer, home away from home At times I find myself within and feeling all alone.  I hope you're well, aloft, on high looking down and me At times I glance and squint the sun if only I could see.

Comic Book store - "Heroes" and Heroes and Champions Comics - Sunnyvale and Campbell CA

I found two stores well worth the visit in the area between San Fran and San Jose. Easy to stop and shop on the way to the airport. Heroes - 24 E Campbell Ave, Campbell, CA 95008 - Heroes Heroes and Champions Comics - 574 E El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087  I started at the 24 E location and found a large amount of high grade Marvel horror from the 70's as well as Epic Illustrated I needed but most of all, a nice Conan 37 CGC 9.6 WP Adams book. After buying a large stack, they

Dover's Travels

11/1/2021: If you find yourself in Colorado Springs and decide to drive West to a town called Salida you will drive through the Rockies and be presented with spectacular views of wide open spaces. If you then take a Northern route back to Denver you will see more of the Rockies and find yourself in a snow storm at some point above 9500 feet. The drive is hard from the perspective that at least once every mile you feel as if you should stop to take a picture; it's that nice, that beautiful b

Your first job as a parent is to prepare your child to leave. This is typically a 18+ year journey and the results of your efforts are a long time in coming. I recently got a first glimpse into my teaching and preparation after learning about some of my son's college life.  His daily routine includes getting up everyday at 7:30 (AM), working out and finishing with a cold shower before getting ready for his 11:00 classes. He only drinks water (for the most part) and looks for healthy food as

Neal Adams - the Superboy run

People tend to focus on keys and main stream titles but for me, the glory of Neal Adams has always been on its finest display through the 26 issue run of Superboy covers. It is almost as if DC said here you go, tell a story of a teenager in life and keep the Super Villain's out of it. Just focus on the boy, the Superboy, in a teenage body full of angst and hormones. Even if the chemistry is from Krypton kids are still kids on any world. I am 15 issues into this run and when finished, it will be

Waking in a moment of time....

I call these episodes "waking in a moment of time". These are moments or realization, when you wake up and realize what is happening, what you are doing are tiny little glimpses into what makes you smile or feel alive but they happen in real time; not in reflection.... Taiwan - Jason - travel life. "I woke up in a moment" while riding with my good friend Jason in Taiwan. I met him through work and even through a language barrier, we seem to have a connection. The people of Taiwan are b

This is about my daughter, Sarah. Sarah was accepted to ECU, Eastern Carolina University. This will be her first acceptance. She was excited but hesitant. In her words as I remember (some added), and they are glorious: “I was accepted but overall it seems a bit shady. See, they accepted me but they have a long list of things I need to do in order to be really accepted. I still have to finish school, send in my transcripts, keep my grades up (do not commit a felony) and all the things I
