ChooChooChoose It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so why not print out a classic valentine for that special someone in your life.

If you want to print – just right-click and select “Open Link in New Window” and then print as many as you need.

In case you don’t get the reference, the valentine is from a Season 4 episode of the Simpson’s entitled “I Love Lisa”. After Lisa notices that Ralph Wiggum has not received any Valentine’s Day cards, she gives him this one.

It’s a classic episode and I always thing of this card when it rolls around.

I signed up for a Grand Central phone number shortly after Google acquired the service and I received a Beta Invite. Not sure why I did. I don’t use it. The idea of one number you could keep and direct to other numbers sounded appealing.

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of odd phone calls. First, the number was accidentally published in an ad looking for truck drivers. I started getting phone calls asking about the job. I eventually found out the company and contacted them.

I more recently started getting calls from an elderly gentleman. I always let them go to voice mail. Listening to the message embedded above, I guess he got tired of that.


I can’t believe it was 20 years ago when I first started reading Sandman from DC Comics Vertigo imprint. It was my introduction to Neil Gaiman and I’ve been a fan ever since.

I’ve devoured everything Sandman related since then and I eagerly await receiving the final 2 volumes in the Absolute Sandman series this Christmas, so I can re-read the entire series.

One great thing about the series was the cast of rotating artists. Being only 14 when the series started, it introduced me to great artists like Jill Thomson, Marc Hempel, MIke Zuli, and more.

If you’re a fan of the series or great looking art, you should check out the Endless Refelctions: 20 Years of Sandman gallery. Many of the pieces are available for purchase—if you have the $$.
