Not Your Average Horoscopes

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18 There is a possibility of a budding romantic relationship. This new partner will be devoted to you like none other before. However, if you are not single or simply not interested, you may have a stalker. The stars do not indicate that (s)he is dangerous but, as mentioned before, (s)he is very devoted and maybe a little obsessed. I recommend that you practice the buddy system and invest in pepper spray. Best of luck. Pisces: February 19 – March 20 Money is involved in your future, dearest Pisces. Maybe you will receive a...

Dallas Fan Expo: James Marsters

I am a nerd. Only a nerd would have a mental list of television series that are to be watched every year. I watch each of these shows from beginning to end. I do not care how many seasons it has. If was important enough to make the list then it gets watched. One of those series is Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.

Ian’s first professional acting role came in the form as the...

Sharon Meets Neko Atsume

I recently tried out a new game app called Neko Atsume. I got a little inside tip that this game is quietly and quickly becoming one of the most popular apps among teens. So my youngest son Eli (9 years old) and I decided to try it out together. I also suggested it to a friend because she is a young cat lady and I thought she might enjoy it. Funny thing is, she was already playing it. Neko Atsume is a Japanese designed app. The name of the game literally translates to mean “Cat Collector”. It was originally...
