Christmas Eve 2016 has come and gone. It happens too fast, but at least its filled with lots of good food, good people, and good gifts.
Celebrated Christmas with my favorite niece and nephew and their way cool Mom (she told me to say that) tonight. I received some fantastic Harry Potter socks, some soda with amazing flavors – which includes bacon and one that’s like butterbeer, a soap with caffeine in it, and some yummy holiday treats. Yes, everyone knows […]

A few years ago I backed a Kickstarter campaign to be in a new Sherlock Holmes and John Watson comic book “Watson and Holmes” created by Brandon Perlow and Paul Mendoza. They re-envision Watson and Holmes as African-Americans living in today’s New York […]
Three new Harry Potter Stories from Hogwarts were released today (September 6) as eBooks! Well you might have gotten them a bit early, like I did last night a little after 11pm when they automatically downloaded (downloads must be on a different time zone). While not a true story/novel, they are little chapters/entries on a […]
Today (July 31) on Harry and J. K. Rowling’s birthday the new Harry Potter book (Book 8) came out: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” Not a novel, but a screenplay of two plays: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One & Two and Harry Potter parties were once again held around the […]
