In a recent Adult Beverages blog post, you mentioned a drinking podcast, where we have drinks and talk about what we are drinking. Once I can get myself to a better schedule on blogging in general, I would love to do a podcast with you.

Nice collection of books. Back in the day, I used to read the Star Wars novels. My favorite was the X-Wing series (I feel like it've mentioned this out here already... I know we've talked a lot of Star Wars over the years)

I agree with you on Michigan. Nice and colorful.

One of my wife's all time favorite shows.

Adding these to my list to check out. Speaking of returns... someday, mine will be back. I miss it. Trust me, I do miss recording episodes.

Great movie. A modern classic among the westerns.

Apollo 13 was my favorite of Ron Howard's movies. I never saw A Beautiful Mind (I might have to do a blog post listing other movies I've not seen yet, several of them best picture Oscar winners). I admit to really liking The DaVinci Code. It was pretty well done. The last Ron Howard thing I liked was the documentary special "Eight Days A Week" Enjoyable, especially if you are a Beatles fan. As for Han Solo movie, I thought Lord and Miller would have done a nice job. Guess we shall see if Ron Howard breaks his spell of lackluster movies.

I still have my rollerblades. My wife has tried multiple times, to donate them and get rid of them. I had to hide them in a box that she doesn't get into. One day, I plan to put them back on and see how uncordinated I will be (and I promise to film the awkward motions on inline wheels)

I missed the guess on last week's. I think I posted on Instagram with corn on the cob.

Looks like a good contender for being a regular toy photo blog post series. Norman will always be a legend. Cooper was inspired by him.

Apple Store, LEGOs and the bean. Looks like a second visit was awesome. 200 PTO hour accrued? That's quite a bit.

I liked your title for this post. Clever. I'm D.C. for my favorite comic character - Aquaman. But when it comes to Iron Man, Captain America and Fantastic Four (and Spider-man of course), Marvel gets a lot of my respect (and money from seeing all of the movies and buying them on Blu-ray)

I like that I was close. As for this week, I'm guessing that the bottom of an iPod click wheel.

For this week, I'd like to say something Blackhawks related.

I never knew they had an official name. Airdancers. Now I know more when I drive past them in the future.

Wow. That is an impressive list. We do the same thing with Blu-ray combo packs, making sure we get the digital copy and hoping it's iTunes. I would say we have a good 60 digital movies we've redeemed from the Blu-ray combo packs, mixed between iTunes and UV. The UV digital titles are not ones I like since you can't copy the physical .M4V file to an iPad.

In my comment above, I'm 5"9". It appeared that I said Wayne was 5'9". I'd guess Wayne is at least 6'1"

Oh wow. This is a nice throwback post. I recall this quite well and proud to have been a part of it. In response to Mr Whall, he is quite tall (at 5'9", he towers over me).
