Build Your Dream Home

Saw this at Kev’s Blog:

Your home is a

Time-Lord’s Manor

Your kitchen consists of dilithium-powered food replicators, manned by obedient robot slaves, who are sure to never, ever rebel. I mean, it’s preposterous to even consider it. Your study has every science fiction title ever written. One of your garages contains a life-sized X-Wing fighter, and KITT. (KITT was a gift from a well-meaning uncle.)

Your home also includes a robot repair bay, where your mechanized servants are routinely fitted with new restraining bolts. (It’s just a precaution.) Your guests enjoy your working holodeck. Outside is your radio telescope, listening constantly for alien transmissions. Especially invaders. They’ll come eventually, even if nobody believes you. (Nobody does.)

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:

Find YOUR Dream Home!

FOX Trip

Today, I’m on my way to sunny California.
People at FOX were kind enough to fly me and other web-based media people out for a set tour/meet and greet with the cast of the new show The Sarah Connor Chronicles!
I’ll be back… in a couple of days. Check back later this week for highlights of the trip… and more on the upcoming show!

Here’s an early trailer:

2 Great Kids is trying to raise support for a great cause. I mentioned it the other day, but I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to help out. Young Jonathon has a dream to attend the New York Comic Con next year. And ArsGeek is doing a wonderful thing, trying to spread the word for this deserving, handicapped boy get to the Comic Con. It seems like a relatively easy dream to fulfill if just several people give a little bit! And thanks to those who already have!

I also want to draw attention to another little boy. The son of good friends of mine from college was involved in an accident a few weeks ago. The whole story can be read here. 4-year-old Bryson was playing and accidentally got caught underneath a lawnmower. His leg had to be amputated, and he’s doing better now. But Bryson and his family still need a lot of prayer. He’ll be going through a lot of physical therapy and has a lot more healing to do. Family set up the website: to post updates, a guestbook that visitors can sign to give uplifting notes, and an address where gifts or cards can be sent.

Please consider giving or just saying a prayer for these precious boys!
I know they’d both appreciate it!
