Addictive New Game on Orisinal

One of my favorite games sites is orisinal.com. The games are truly original. Each one is a unique concept.

I'm definitely a videogame addict, but rarely do I get to feed my addiction with something new. First it was Defender, with a steady stream of copycats. Then came Super Mario Brothers, then countless hundreds of knockoffs. I don't even know which game was the first first-person shooter, but now the top 10 always seems to have five or six of them. I think EverQuest gets the credit as the first true massively multiplayer online role-playing game. My only every couple of years and do we see something original. Heck, even Tetris has been knocked off about 4000 times.


But this website, created by one individual, has a huge number of miniature games that are original as they are addicting. Beyond that, the artistry is phenomenal and completely unique. The music is completely original, and for most of the games, is soothing rather than annoying. And finally, they are family-friendly. With two children who are just starting their adventures in video games, I can appreciate games that don't feature blood and gore. These games actually have extremely mild violence if any at all, and no death and destruction.

The newest game is called Winterbells. I won't say it's my favorite, but it's definitely fun, and absolutely adorable. Check them all out when you get a chance.

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

An open letter to Emmanuel Macron, President of France

Dear Pres. Macron,

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has been invited for the celebration of Bastille Day, a day for celebrating democracy and independence of the French people.

As a citizen of the United States, I encourage you to revoke the invitation. Donald Trump does not represent the vast majority of the American people. As you have stated publicly, if the United States is not going to support science, you have offered US scientists the option of emigrating to France for the continuation of their studies on climate change.

Additionally, Donald Trump has made his nationalist and blatantly racist feelings known on multiple occasions, again something I know that you personally find offensive.

The majority of Americans would support the decision for France to revoke his invitation. Citizens of the United States need to take responsibility for removing their country from a position of influence on the world stage. Our previous president, Barack Obama, strived to be a …
