Charming Proposal With A BIG Surprise!

I know this young man, Karthish Manthiram. My wife and I are good friends with his parents. We call him Kaji. I watched him grow up from about 10 years old. I am so happy for him and his parents, Rom and Raji. He now has a PhD in Physics, like his father, and a good job in that field. By the way,... Sign in to see full entry.

Intense Police Chase In Las Vegas

After the mass shooting last year in Las Vegas, the police there are stepping up their game. They respond quickly to every call, and they will not let bad guys with guns get away from them. This is the latest example, and I hope it turned out for the best. The bad guys were stopped, but..... bullets... Sign in to see full entry.

Ahhhhh, Nature, how glorious, how lovely, how innocent...

Here is a great video that shows how Nature is none of the above. And it is very symbolic in its savage truth.......... Turn up the volume to maximum.... you will then hear birds chirping for about 15 seconds before the cats appear... one regular-sized cat and one much larger cat... The smaller cat...

The karts at COTA

Here is an email I sent to my friend Matt, after he sent me an email inquiring about the difference between the karts at COTA and K1. For those who are wondering what this is about, these are go-kart tracks, where people go and pay money, to strap themselves into racing machines which are designed... Sign in to see full entry.

Funeral Ceremonies for King Bhumibol

I found a perfect video to convey the grandeur of these amazing ceremonies. This video uses aerial drones, which give us a 'birds-eye' view that no human observer can ever see. When drones fist became available, I swore that I would shoot down any drone that came trespassing over my house. I was... Sign in to see full entry.

What are kids doing for FUN these days?

In 2017, kids (and some older folks like me) are stepping it up these days. More skill, more daring, more ideas, better equipment, better cameras....... something like this is a joy to watch, even if you cannot imagine doing it yourself. Good, clean fun. I need to start watching more videos again,... Sign in to see full entry.

Danny MacAskill-- A Human Cat On A Bicycle

Danny has been featured here before. This new video, a Wee Day Out, is his best yet. It is a pure joy to watch him do these awesome things on a bicycle, like it is an extension of his own body. And stay for the bloopers at the end..... he doesn't hit it perfect every time..... he has to work hard... Sign in to see full entry.
