Sending prayers to India and all those who lost family members in the Mumbai terrorist attacks over the past few days.  The ability to watch streaming video from India and see all the blog posts was so different from the MSM coverage. 

Thanks MSNBC for the weekend prison special.  It was so informative I had to look elsewhere. 

Thanks CNN for the Heros presentation.  It was lovely and brought tears to my eyes to see so many heros, but I really wanted more coverage of the News. 

Thanks Fox but no thanks, you betcha.  Haven’t darkened my channel for at least a year now.  I would rather watch the weather channel.

Thanks India TV.  You gave this News Junkie the coverage I needed.  Still watching today.

Text message to Grandma saying only: 55!!!

I got a text message the other day from my grandson while I was at work.  It said simply 55!!!  Now that may not mean much to you, but to folks in gameland that is the magic number for World of Warcraft players.  It is the level you must reach to be able to create a new character from the most recent expansion of the game.  Wrath of the Lich King.  I am not going into a description of the game or expansion here, but provide a link to the site if you are interested in seeing more. 

Back to topic…
When I got that text message what it meant to me was that it was time again to pull out the old credit card and purchase the expansion for my grandson.  I laugh about this.  You see, he and I have played games together since he was six.  We played Mario Brothers on the NES, Link on SNES, Final Fantasy on Playstation, and again on Playstation 2.  Throughout the years we have played games together, commiserated over failures to figure out puzzles, rejoiced over figuring them out, drawn maps, sorted out strategies, laughed and loved throughout.  My grandson is now 21.  While some may think I am nuts for my gaming side, it has given me a closeness in this twenty first century like none other.  No matter how separated we are in age or distance, we can still play together.  And its fun.
