___I haven't been working on the website much lately (been busy with other things) but finally got around to doing a couple of updates. Firstly, I added a link to my cigar collection page. Second, I'm working on a page for my new Wii system and the 4 games I have for it so far (Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Excite Truck, Super Swing Golf, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Finally, I've been going around and updating dates here and there on the pages as some were from quite awhile back. I recently (as in early December) purchased a new tv (52" Panasonic LCD Projection Screen) and watching movies and HD tv shows on it are awesome.

___I've just gotten back from vacation (3 full days in Chicago to see the King Tut exhibit). It was really great. Over to the left you can see that I've added a picture section and it includes pictures from the entire Chicago trip, ones from my trip earlier this year to Civil War sites/Eureka Springs, and photos from my sister's (Beth) wedding. Hadn't noticed that the front page of my site had been hacked until just today but everything should now be restored completely. If you notice odd issues with the site over the next couple of days, it's because I'm playing around with layouts/fonts/colors/etc.

___________________________November 3, 2005___________________________

___I've changed the menu system on the site. The new menu system loads quicker and fits more with the overall motiff of the site (or so I hope). I've pared down all of my video games from non-Nintendo systems. My NES count now stands at 146 games and growing.
