Merry Christmas

Family - Friends -Fans

I just want to take this opportunity to thank our Lord Jesus Christ for all the blessings that He has bestowed upon me in the past year, and specifically for giving me the honor and privilege of having all of you in my life.

I am beyond unworthiness for the bounty the He provides me, and in this holiday season want to remind everyone that celebrates it, that the only reason for this time of year is because of the birth of our Lord, it's not the commercialism of presents, it's not all the noise of other religious or secular observances or fleeting holiday symbols, its the fact that God Himself decided to send part of his Holy Spirit to us people in the form of a man Jesus Christ and then to take that man who had no sin and allow him to be sacrificed in substitute for us, for our sins.

I wish everyone a prosperous, joyous and loving 2007!!

Kind Regards & God Bless

A Thin Green Line

I'm a huge supporter of the men and women in Law Enforcement that
everyday keep our society from turning in to a cesspool of scumbags
preying on the weak.

The following is some information that I think everyone should know

Two U.S. Border Patrol Agents have been sentenced to a
decade long prison terms for apprehending an illegal
alien at our border!

Almost as outrageous is that the illegal alien drug
smuggler, who was given immunity for testifying against
the agents is now suing the U.S. for $5 million, claiming
he was permanently injured!

I have just signed a petition calling for the President
to pardon these two Border Agents and I’m asking you to
join with me by clicking here for the full story and the petition:

A Long Road...

Well Root fans it's been about 5 months since I updated my blog, and yes how lazy can I be, but I've been busy dammit! ;-)

I did want to take a few seconds and let you know what has been going on.

Just came back from Dragon*Con in Atlanta where we talked about New Voyages and all things Trek. I also sat on a Trek vs StarGate panel that was a lot of fun.

About to start shooting World Enough and Time and here's a teaser for you fans that actually read this blog that you won't hear anywhere else. The episodes got new sets you've never seen before that has to do with, let's just say etheral things.

Finally I wanted to comment about energy (yea I know a bit off track, but it's my blog)

I just love the fact that if anything happens to oil output, could be just the threat of something happening like a storm, and oil shoots up 5 bucks a barrel. Now when we get some good news like the huge oil find by Chevron in the Gulf, it's hey no big deal, won't effect prices, blah blah.

Personally I think enviromentalist have something to do with being a wet blanket on that oil find news. They were delighted to see gas spiking, hell they were hoping to see $6.00 a gallon at the pumps. In their minds it would force alternative energy sources and higher milage cars (which is great don't get me wrong), but now that there is a chance that the US could start to ween itself off the foreign oil tit with this find, it's hey no big deal.

and that's my 2 cents on that!

NEWSFLASH- Ben Affleck Dumb Ass

This from Mr. Affleck on 4/8/06:

Reminiscent of Al Franken on the Late Show last October, on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, actor Ben Affleck charged that President Bush “probably also leaked” Valerie Plame's name and so “if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!”

Well Mr. Affleck apparently you know nothing about the Presidents authority to declassify anything he wants, without anyone elses, say like you, or congresses approval. If the President decides that he wants something reported in the paper it's his perogative, that very event makes whatever it is declassified.

No crime has been committed here dumb ass, go look for something else to hang your Bush hating hat on.

Mind Blowing Video Game

Check out this 35 min video of the game here:

Anyone seen our spine?

From the AP today 3/8/06: VIENNA, Austria — The United States on Wednesday was threatened with "harm and pain" by Iran for its role in bringing the Islamic republic to the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear program.

You know I think the rest of the world has forgotten who actually has the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet.

Is it just me or are these rouge countries getting a little to lippy, there was a time not to long ago when a statement out of Iran like that would have had B-52 bombers warming up on runways.

During WW2 this country obliterated it's enemies, there was no worry of "collateral damage" if there was resistence from a city, wipe the city off the planet. Odds are the next city would be much more compliant.

Unfortunately our government is too worried about it's public image then our security. Hey if one dead baby is shown on the news and all the liberals have a fit about it, and poll numbers dip, well we can't have that now can we?

Meanwhile Iran a country with no such moral apprehension, builds nukes and openly threatens us.

It's time to take the velvet gloves off.

New Space Flight Portal

So I was looking over the web and I noticed that there is really no comprehensive site for people to go to if they are interested in buying tickets for a ride in to space. Being the entrepreneur that I am I started up:

Right now it's a portal, I hope to make it more flashy (unless it get's bought out) but check it out it's got some neat links

New Voyages News

Well looks like we're going to be doing some pick-up shots late April, so there will some fun photos from that coming up. Also we hope to have an awesome yet unannounced guest star shoot some footage that week.

The new trailer for "To Serve All My Days" is up and wow what a response.

The first vignette is essentially done, it's currently in Ron Moore's hands to add some small effects and it will be posted, I'm thinking maybe a week or two tops.

Thanks for the support!

It's Valentines Day Not Christmas

So I'm watching TV last night and Radio Shack is running those ad's where people sit in the chair and tell others what they want. Well apparently they were so sucessful over Christmas that they continued the trend for Valentines Day.

This haired out women sits in the chair and says something to the affect of "Last year I told you not to get me anything for Valentines Day, and well you didn't. Well guess what sometimes that means the exact opposit and you should have got me something" Then she whips out the new Motorola Cell Phone d' Jour and says "get me this"

Now I'm not going to point out the quality of the commercial or the grating personality of the actress, after all it is just a commercial

BUT I am going to point out that I refuse to go down a path of rampent consumerism over a made up holiday. Buy you a freakin $300 cell phone for Valentines Day are you frakkin NUTS?? This is holiday made up buy a card company based on a Catholic Feast Day, it's NOT Christmas

Here's Radio Shack trying to convince people that they should be dumping hundreds of dollars on others for VALENTINES DAY, Really how damn gullible do you think we are? What's next Cell Phones for Arbor Day?

How about just writing your loved one a nice letter expressing how much they mean to you, and give them a flower you grew. Wouldn't that mean more to them?

No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

But there is such a thing as a free dinner, and you should never pass one up!

I do work for a company that performs "Secret Shopping" basically you go out to a certain retail/restaurant location, shop the place and then turn in a survey, and get paid, plus (at least with this company you get to keep the stuff you buy/eat (plus it would be hard to return an eatin dinner in any manner someone would want))

Anyway tonight I secrect shopped a local steakhouse and had a FANTASTIC dinner, the food was perfect, the waiter witty but not annoyingly so and it taste so much better free.

If you can get yourself hooked up with one these outfits I highly recommend it!

Evil Government Spying

So is the government listening in on your call to grandma?

This entire flap over whether the President has the authority to authorize warrantless wiretaps is just insane.

First off the government is only listening to conversations from suspected TERRORIST to people in the US, not from you to your pot dealer down the street, or you and your mistress, or you and your psych doctor, so unless you have known terrorist calling you, you don't have much to worry about.

Next when you come back in to the United States from a foreign country, how many hoops as a citizen of this nation do you need to go through to get back in? You have to show paperwork, be subjected to questioning, and searches of your belongings and even of your body if they want, and yet people are having a fit that the government might be listening in on their communications that are coming in to the country, seems a little weird to me.

How about your false sense of security when your on the phone anyway. Everytime you use your cordless phone, and everytime you use your cell phone that communication is going over the air unencoded, and with a full spectrum analyzer from Radio Shack for about $800 I can tune in to those phone calls and listen to them like it was an FDR fireside chat. Don't even get me started on how easy it is to read your e-mail or tap in to your VOIP calls.

Finally who does have the authority to authorize wiretaps, a judge you say. So let me get this straight, you feel that essentially a glorified lawyer, who's rank in the political spectrum of things is slightly more then your local selectboard has the authority to authorize a wiretap, but the President of the United States, the man who's has the final decision on whether to launch nuclear weapons, can't have the authority to authorize a wiretap or appoint people to have that authority? You've got to be kidding me.

Think about it the next time some liberal tries to ram the argument of "Bush gone wild" down your throat. Unless he's talking about the Bush twin daughters, don't listen to him.
