GungalTM of the Day
 GungalTM Penny Mathis dispatched an admirer - of her Shelby...

    It's wonderful to be home again with my beloved Effie!! The snowstorm yesterday did slow me down quite a bit on the way home. It took me an hour longer to get back home than it usually does. The thruway wasn't too bad, but the side roads were pretty dang slippery. I had to shift it into 4x4 on the last three or four miles to get home in one piece. After a pretty scary wipeout (luckily with just me on the road!), I put it into 4x4 low to get through.
    Today is also a special day, as it's Chris, Jr.'s burpee-day!! He's already played with the legendary Gameboy, and he loves playing different games with the Kinect, too. Little Chris shows all of his Granma's and Daddy's gamer gene, looking on with rapt fascination as Granma Eppy puts Link through his Skyward Sword paces! Happy birthday, Jay!!!
    An interesting news link today examines the phenomenon of the female-led action flick. Long-time readers of the blog will have noted that the Alien, Resident Evil,and Underworld film franchises have all been featured prominently here. It's not that the male-centered action flick is dead... it's that women are just as competent in most lead roles. And, of course, they're a lot easier on the eyes, my man crushes notwithstanding, lol. Moving on...
