      I want my share of the Recon armor in Halo.
      But, I have a rather small problem.

      I gots nobody to play withs.

      If you don't know what I'm talking about, ether you don't play Halo, or you care about the Achievements. But I need 3 other people to get the Vidmaster Challenges Annual, Endure, and Déjà Vu.
      My skill level is.... above noob, way below any good. I know what I'm doing, I'm just not all good at it.

      If you can help, great! If you can find someone for me, cool. If not... well, lets just say I wouldn't be pleased.
      Thanks in advance!

      That is all.

      Band competitions have started again for the season, and I have been put in charge in moving the massive 12 foot by 12 foot clock onto the field.
      Result? My evenings have been taken away every Tuesday, Thursday, and all day Saturday.
      So don't expect much in the posting department from me.

      That is all.

      That Wikia, my Role Playing partner in Space Battles and friend, just did something really cool. Even more than that.

      He made me this.
      UNSCGreyGhost.jpg

      Her name is the UNSC/RES Grey Ghost. She is my ship in SB, a RP where you...fight battles in space. duh.
      My faction is, of course, the UNSC (from Halo), while Wikia is the Red Eclipse, a former pirate group, now a pirate hunting and destroying fleet/army. Our ships crossed paths when the Grey Ghost was trying out a new prototype faster than light drive when it ran into a problem and got sent into Wikia's space.
      If you want to read the stories of the Red Eclipse, you may find them here.

      Great work, Wikia. Thank you sooo much. I wuvs it smiley12.gif

      I just got this nice Boatswain's pipe, but all the pages on the internet about calls seem... old. Like sailboat old.
      Can anyone point me to a nice source that has the calls for today's US Navy ?

      That the weather here in San Jose is quite....lets say unpredictable.
      Chicago is supper hot and muggy in the summer, super cold in the winter.
      Hawaii is warm all year round.
      The south has just about all kinds of weather, but it's predictable.

      California, on the other hand, you never know what will happen in the next hour.
      Here, I'll give you an example of mine for the past few days.

      2 days ago. Mostly cloudy, with bits of sun. That night, winds blowing like there was no tomorrow.
      Yesterday. Non-stop rain, all day long, until the evening. Then it was on and off sprinkles.
      This morning. Bright sun all around, then about a half hour ago, a sudden, but very short, rain storm.
      Now? Cloudy with a chance of meatballs.

      Catch my drift?

      That is all.

      All right, all right! I write the stupid story. It's long, so bear with me.


      So it all began when grandpa died about 3 weeks ago. But you know what? I think he had a great life. Lived until he was 87, was very active in the community, spent time in the Navy, and all kinds of cool things. In fact, you may read his obituary here.

      So anyways, like I said before, I was a spur of the moment to leave (like, 4 hours after we got the call, "All righty then, we're going to Connecticut! Let get pack'n!), so we just ran out of the house, not able to call anyone, so the people I talk with and volunteer with thought I dropped of the side of the earth. We (henceforth, "We" refers to me, my brother, our friend Jess, and my dad) all piled into the Cruiser (Our 2008 FX4 F-350 with crew cab) and headed east.
      Now, we knew that the trip was going to be a long one, but 3,000 freakin miles takes a looooonnnnggggg time. So dad and I decided to shift drive there. No stopping to rest, only to eat, bathroom, and gas up, sleep when you're not driving. Lots of fun. But did you know that half of the trip was driving at 70-75 MPH? And I like to drive about 3 miles over, to save time. And the cruiser has no problem going 80-85. In fact, she likes going fast. That 6.4L diesel engine averagely gets 10 miles to the gallon, but now she was clocking over 15! The other half was spent in road construction at 55 mph. Blah. Slow
      Interstate 80 goes from San Francisco, CA to New York. We traveled about 98% of it. California and Nevada had my favorite kind of terrain, mountain and hill roads. But east Nevada and Utah was nothing more than a long, razor straight road. And I think razor roads are just as hard as coastal roads.
      So we drove on all day and all night, driving as far until we where just about to fall asleep at the wheal, then switching. This work until we got to about Cleveland. Then neither of us (oh, by the way, only dad and I can drive. smiley13.gif ) could go on any further. So we pulled into the next truck stop and hunkered down and slept for about 3 hours. And we felt much better after that.
      So then it was the prairie and the great plains. To this day I still don't know why it's called the "great" plains. It's flat, it's boring, there are no hills, just bumps, flat, and long. Oh, did I mention flat? Then the rain came. First as a nice sprinkle, but then so hard that I couldn't see for about 10 seconds when I was driving. That was...exciting. But other then that, the drive was rather uneventful.
      But when we got to about east Pennsylvania, we, one again, found ourselves running out of steam. But we where about 4 hours away from our end, so we decided to push forward. But it turned out that dad could drive any more because all of the coffee was messing with him. So I had to drive the last bit. But I managed to get the hotel in one peace and didn't run off the road, so I was happy.
      Total road time: about 3100 miles in 50 hours. Very sweet.

      So the next morning (4 hours later) we went to grandpa's service. It was nice, and the first I've ever been to. I meet several of my relatives that I never knew they existed, including cousins, an aunt, and several others. After the service, we all went over to an Italian restaurant and had a very nice lunch with everybody. We then stayed another night, then it was back on the road to see the world (at least the US side of it)!

      Our first stop was the Shaker Village in Massachusetts. These people where serious about their work. They would work on a single peace of woodwork until it was perfect. Chars, tables, houses, all original work. After more then 200 years they still look like new. And they had this water powered wood shop. The water came down from a local mountain, then flowed into and powered this impeller that I never heard of before, but it works, because they had this demo that they turn on the water and all of the tools, including a table saw, a lave, and a bow saw, to name a few. The Shakers, unlike the Amish, where very willing to new tech, like cars, washing machines, and tractors.

      Then we drove (not as hard) up to upstate New York, Niagara Falls. We got one of those full park passes, and we went onto the Maid of the Mist, The Cave of the Winds, and a bunch of other stuff. The Maid of the mist was very cool, in more ways then one. We came to about 100 to 200 feet within Horseshoe Falls, and we all got somewhat wet. But then, ho ho! But then we went down to the Cave of the Winds, where you stand on a platform not 25 feet, or if you're brave (or stupid, doesn't matter) enough, stand under one of the falls and get soaking wet. Well, at least I did. I didn't notice the little hole in the neck of my poncho, so when I stood under, I got this cold bout of water down my neck and soaking everything I had on. Lots of fun.

      To be continued below...

      Like I said, it was long.

      After that, we drove to Chicago to eat, you guessed it, pizza. And other things, *coff* of course. It just happen to be my turn to drive when we got there. Now don't get me wrong. Driving in downtown Chicago is nothing like driving here in San Jose. San Jose now seems like a old county town then rather a city. Our GPS somehow told me to get off the highway right into south side Chicago, where all the bum and hustlers live. My first thing was this old guy who was standing in the middle of the off ramp. I thought he was crossing, but noooooooo. He was panhandling. So speeding past him, I found out that the rest of the city was more of the same. There are averagely 6 cars trying to get to the same place, at the same time, as fast as the laws of physics will let them. And if you're are the one trying to obey the law to the letter, you're the one who'll get chewed to peaces. I would have been fine in my little car, but in big beastly, it was a whole 'nother story.
      We found Pizza Uno's, and decided that it would be best to park in a parking structure rather the street. But once again, I was hard pressed to fit my 23 foot long 7 foot wide in those small corners. But I got her in, and we went down to Uno's.
      If you think you tried all kinds of pizza without trying Uno's, prepare to drop dead. First, you order your food at the check in area, where nominally you would put you name down for a table. Then they seat you, but you have to wait about an hour until your pizza is ready, not only because it's busy, but because they make it completely fresh. When it did come out from the kitchen, it's not like most pizza, where the layers are from the bottom, crust, sauce, cheese, and any toppings, like meet and veggies. Nope! Ours was crust, cheese, sauce with sausage mixed in. And it was thick. I could eat about a half a pie on a good day, but I was barely able to eat 2 slices. Very filling.
      We also stopped by dad's old university, North Western, and also went to the Museum of Science and Industry and saw the U-505, the only captured German U-boat in the western hemisphere.

      Then we went down to Memphis to see my great uncle, who broke his leg a few months ago, and dad wanted to see him. So we stayed there for about a week, fixing up a few things that needed fixing, and caught up on some long lost sleep. But then my old Razr phone, after having it for over 4 years, decided to bite the dust. So I bought myself a new Samsung Propel, which I'm liking
      Then my mom called, saying that she fell and the x-rays say she cracked her knee cap, and she wanted me home ASAP. So I got myself a plane ticket back to home the next day, so here I am, while the rest of the boys get to go see Mammoth Cave, Yellowstone,Grand Canyon, and a whole bunch of great places to go that I will miss out on while I take care of my dear old muddah.


      So that's my great American road trip. The end.
      Questions? No? Good, get back work.

      That is all!

      Post them here if you hear anything.


      Not much right now.
      All I know is what I found out at the game store; That it was going to be a FPS, it is going to released sometime in the fall of 2010 (maybe September?), and it may have SPARTANs. Maybe you got something more?
      Bungie has to let more info out soon or else there will be riots in the streets, or something like that sooner or later.

      Howdy y`all! I`m writing this from a Starbucks in Memphis, TN!

      Sooooooooo, yah. I`m very sorry about how I said I was going to be back in a week 2 weeks ago, but my dad is stopping here to spend time with his uncle. And he dosen`t have any sort of tech apart from a tv, so I`m cut off from the world. Goody. I`m hopping that we can get home sometime this weekend, but no promises.

      Anyways, I found out that I do have relatives! No one directly, but still! Supper cool!

      Also, we stopped by Niagara Falls (got very wet), Pizza Unos in Chicago, and a bunch of other cool places on the way. I`ll tell you all about the details when I get home to my nice computer.


      Okay, I have to go for now, because dad want to use the laptop, so I`ll talk to you later

      That is all.
