Donner Lake Pix

My meetup visited Donner Lake in CA last weekend. It is very close to Truckee. They have a museum called "The Old Jail."

The Green Lantern

My parents and I went to see The Green Lantern today. We really enjoyed the movie. Ryan was very entertaining and delivered both comedic timing and physical comedy. I highly recommend this movie if you enjoy comic books, action films, or appreciate big budget movies. The graphics were fun and inventive. The entire script was very creative. I especially liked the humorous take on the 'mindful' defense techniques such as the automobile. I hope that they make more Green Lantern movies.

The bad guy was more than a bit frightening. I do not think that kids under the age of 10 should be watching this. There are big teeth, people do get killed and I could see youngsters having nightmares for a week.
It has been a really long time since I have posted.  I don't suppose that any body reads this blog.  Still, here I am.  I have been enjoying my Star12 membership.  The classes that I have gotten the most out of include how to deal with difficult people, assertiveness, and MS Excel.  I've been thinking about getting my MOS in Sharepoint and Excel.  I'm definitely leaning towards the IT side of things.  It would appear that the world will continue to tilt in that direction and I have decided to be a participant rather than an observer.  That is the assignment for this week: in what way are you participating in society?  Are you an observer or participant?  Are you like one of those 'Watchers' from Highlander?  (ok, I am dating myself there.)
