Today, I got back from a mini vacation with my family. We went to the Eden Roc in Miami Beach.   With a skeleton staff, it was passable at best. At least the rooms were cheap. We ended up not getting our room cleaned once while we stayed there. The amenities were all fine and dandy. The TV had HBO, and we saw a lot of terrible movies. The only decent movie was The Last Unicorn.  The beds were cruel mistresses. We ended up going home early because of them. When the bedsheets are sturdier than the pillows, then you...

It has been almost nine years since my family went to the Parrot Keys. We have been roaming about the place waiting for a decent deal. This year they had a special for AAA members. We ended up with a 20 percent discount. The better deal was for a villa that came with two rooms. The only downside was the stairs. Still, we were used to climbing stairs since we used to live in Hialeah. The rooms were large and spacious. The place even came with a little kitchen and a living room. The first floor bathroom had a tub...

I think I want new graphic novels. Still, I do not have room for them. I used to read graphic novels when I was at University. There was a small, but interesting collection. I like short novels. I do not have the follow through to deal with longer manga projects like Naruto. I did read a couple of interesting them around the edges....

I took this photo a couple of years ago. It was taken with the second camera that I owned. The previous camera was a Canon. It was like 500 bucks. It had one main issue. The batteries were AA. I was hemorrhaging money having to change the batteries so often. Sometimes I would extend the batteries by warming them and shacking them a bit. This usually provided another half hour of usage. Eventually, I decided to just get a new camera. I made certain it had a rechargeable battery or two. In my case, I chose two. Still, the quality...
