Misc stuff that wouldn’t go anywhere else
In the late 1990’s, I became involved with competitive or “select” soccer in North Texas. By the early 2000’s, I became President of a local competitive soccer club named Fort Worth United Soccer Club (FWU). I served in that capacity for several years, reaching the maximum term allowed by the Club’s bylaws. An agreement was reached for me to serve one more year but by that time, my boys were aging out of competitive soccer and I was worn out and ready to get back to a more normal life. I agreed to stay one more year and assist with the transition to new leadership. And then I was gone.
I found this great game thatâ€™s similar to World of Warcraft, is cheap, and playable on my Android mobile device and my PC (plays in the Google Chrome browser). The graphics are great and comparable to World of Warcraft graphics except the world is somewhat limited (imagine World of Warcraft dungeons with walls limiting the area you can travel in). The performance on my Droid Bionic and in the Google Chrome browser is very impressive too.
I ran across this photo and thought it was brilliant. A common problem, what to do with the entertainment center wires, and this guy took a tack I had never thought of – just hide the wires in plain sight but bend them in such a manner that the represent the angular lines of a circuit board. In essences, he’s taken the ugly mess of wires and turned them into “art”.
One of the most interesting things we saw on our 2001 Southern California vacation was the backlot tour of Universal Studios. Below are pictures I took during the tour of the Universal Studios California Backlot Tour. Tours are given in trams with a guide narrating the scenes. Depending on when you go, areas of the backlot are sometimes closed while they are filming.
Back in the day, I build a level 19 Rogue twink that ruled in the World of Warcraft battlegrounds. Building the twink character was probably as hard or harder than leveling my Hunter to 80. Here are the notes that I gathered and used to level the twink to 19 (with the assistance of my Level 50 Druid and Level 80 Hunter).
