This week's WOW

Carolyn Porco flies us to Saturn

The Money Tree. Surprising results.


Crystal Cave. I have done a fair amount of crystal hunting and I have never seen crystals anywhere close to this big. WOW.


There is a reason this video has over 5 million views and it hasn't even been a week.


That is one giant wave. This guy has skills.

Amazing Photography

I just had to make a quick post about a photographer's website I found yesterday and have been looking over some more today. His pictures are spectacular and have an almost surreal quality. I highly recommend looking over his site and photographs and if you have any interest in photography on the other side of the camera like I do make sure you watch his video linked on the home page called "Canon Camera Video" where he describes how he makes the end result. His name is Eric Curry and he calls it "painting with light." Fascinating stuff if you ask me. Check it out by clicking on the following link. I think you will be glad you did.

My Newest Website: Secrets Of Games

Just a quick blurb about my newest website I managed to get rolling pretty well this last week. By pretty well I mean I have the basics of the site built so I can build from there and I have started posting to it. I am excited about it because I figured out some great ways to bring huge value to the site in the form of information about games and gaming out there. The beauty of it is this way I can provide information from quite a few of the most popular gaming sites out there in one spot. If you know of any sites I don't please let me know and I will add it to my list. If you have any particular game preference such as Oblivion then let me know that too and I will try to focus on bringing information about that particular game into the mix. Should be a great site once I get it built some more.
