It took some time figuring out just what I wanted to start with as I began writing about comicbooks again. My comic shop provided the subject as I caught up on tweets and then made it to the shop to pick up my books. I live...

This morning as I became awake enough to hear the TV, I was saddened.  Someone from my childhood had passed away.  Of course by now the world knows that Muhammad Ali has died at age 74.  I have just been in a daze as I think about him this morning.

As a small child he was one of those larger than life people that you see on TV and stuff.  I didn't know about all the controversies surrounding him.  I just saw this man that as a little kid I thought would protect you if you were in trouble.  He defeated every challenger in my mind.  He was THE GREATEST.  I think the way he could smile even when taunting his opponents struck a chord.  As a child I somehow knew that this was a man that stood tall for what he believed in. 

Now as a Christian Minister I think about how many who share my faith would tell me that this man was a Muslim and will not see heaven.  That is a debate I will not enter.  What I do wish as a Christian is that I had the strength he had to stand up no matter what for what I believe.  So much of the time I stay quiet for the sake of the job and the Church I am in so I can continue to minister.  There are times though that I wish I could just do like him and forget the consequences and really let go and speak the truth in my heart.  That is what I admire about him.  He was able to let go and be a person we could see stand on principle. 

I believe there are people that will always try and work from within like me and protect when we can and be there at the cost of compromise.  But I am thankful for people like Muhammad Ali who can sacrifice awards and career to make the points he stood for.  There will be those in my sphere of influence who will disparage him to this day in front of me.  I will shake my head and disagree.

I know what that child knew, Muhammad Ali was THE GREATEST!

Saw Batman vs. Superman at 6PM. Spoiler Free It was way darker than I was expecting, music was my only real complaint. All oppressive music. I do think the Bruce Wayne/Batman casting of Ben Afleck was well done. he did a great job and the gruff twenty year crime fighting Bruce Wayne was just different enough from previous movies to make it work. Superman was still OK, never really felt inspired by this version, but he was better here than in the Man of Steel movie. The one that really shined was Gal Gadot. We have a really good Wonder Woman. She is a great balance of beauty and strength. Wish she had more screen time.

Best Batmobile EVER! Hands down the Batmobile was awesome. It really had impressive scenes. Batplane was cool as well.

I have a feeling people will compare to the Marvel movies too much. That would be unfair. I expect mixed reviews. There is plenty of hidden Easter eggs for fans. lots of foreshadowing provided. We get the cool small moments in a massive action movie.

It provided a solid foundation to build a DC Film Universe. I liked it alot.

Loved it & the music! Definitely better then Avengers Age of Ultron. On par with Avengers? Avengers just seems like a movie for a boy whereas this is a movie where the men come out and play. Loved the music too! 😃

Just watched the first episode of the final season of Downton Abbey.  It was so good.  I think I have figured out where some stories are heading.  Carson is so good this year.  I loved the way Lady Edith seems to be standing firmer when faced with Lady Mary's snipes.  This is just a great show.

Do you ever have those days that just wear you down?  Things build up and then one thing just brings you to a place you just want to give up and float away.  Toady was a day like that, one of those that just ended with something that has you being down and trying very hard to cope.  A day that makes you question yourself and feel doubt and hurt.  Been a tough coupla weeks and it just is a hard day that will continue for a bit.  Have to pray and lean on the positive, but days like this make it really hard.

As I get ready for bed I am in a swirl of thoughts.

I am so glad to hopefully have gotten through this latest kidney stone/diabetes/my aged body is falling apart moment.  Head is not hurting tonight.

I really need to win the lottery one of these days so I can help people and not worry if I can pay bills at the same time.

Noticed some DC Comics are now $3.99.  I will have to re-evaluate my hold list as $3 was my "red-line" on pricing.

I love the new Doctor.  He is like the ones I grew up on, only slightly crazy.  So want him around for a few years.

NCIS is one of the best crime dramas ever.  It was the little show that could on CBS and now has two spin-offs and is still as good as ever.

I really need to figure out how to make time to see Straight Outta Compton.

Good Night

Occupation
I try to teach and show kids what it means to follow Jesus Christ. I try and provide a haven and place for kids that might just need a place to be accepted. It is not easy in this judgemental world we live in.
Skills
I have the skill of being able to talk about random stuff. I have a skill which works well because I am in a job that has kids involved, most kids like me. Maybe it is because I can still enjoy child-like things or maybe I just try and let them decide if I can be a part of their world. Outside of my job that would not be a good skill to brag about. I wish I had mad monkey ninja skills, but one can dream.

This is a long time place to get a great meal. Sundays there is a pick your meat and two vegetables that has the line formed around the inside of the place. In the Summer this is the place for Shakes and Ice Cream. The majority of meat and vegetable served come from local businesses and dealers. You are likely to see just about anybody you know at Speedy Chef. Oh, they also are very generous to local Schools, Churches, and other groups.

One of my favorite places to eat. You can get alot of food for a reasonable price. Staff is friendly and nice. I love that they have bar-b-que wings. I also like that they do a good job labeling what is on the buffet. Take out is awesome as well. I eat there many time in a month.

I have been a customer of Theo since he had the House of Pizza up the road. Theo's is a popular place in Jonesville and has been for many years. It is similar, with better food, to Olive Garden. Prices are moderate and it has a weekly lunch buffet that most people take advantage of when there. I love the Grilled Chicken Pizza. Just the cheese and chicken on garlic buttered crust. Veal and Chicken Parmesan are excellent. There is a new dish I will probably misspell, Veal spicotti. Love it. There wings are a treat as well. We get them to serve at the Family reunion.
