Torchwood Gay Sex - John Barrowman and Casey Dillon

Torchwood continues to push boundries. 


Lunchtime At Sea

Norway Memorials

My heart also goes out to the victims and families in Norway that became victims of a mad man.  Sometimes it is hard to come back from the peace of the sea and turn on the news and hear the madness that engulfs our world. 

Amy Winehouse

Just got in from my last voyage and heard about the death of Amy Winehouse.  I'm not surprised at hearing this news, but feel saddened by it.  I always liked her and even with all her drama and issues, I was rooting for her to pull herself together.  Very sad ending to a life that was once full of promise.

Danny Amendola - American Football

The hottest man in the NFL. 

Final Liftoff

As I watched the final spaceshuttle mission launch into space today, I had mixed feelings about seeing this part of the space program come to an end.  For me, I am ready to stop just circling the earth and want to see NASA start to focus on going to the moon and other planets or an asteroids. 

I agree with the direction the last two U.S. Presidents want to take the space program.  The best thing to do is turn the near earth orbit missions over to private companies and let NASA focus on the bigger picture.  The problem is that a lot of the technology needed to do these missions doesn't exist yet.  Will we who are alive now, live to see another man make a deep space mission in our lifetime or will that be for future generations?  Who knows, but I'm hoping it can happen in my lifetime.  I want it to happen in my lifetime.  Imagine all that humanity could accomplish if we lived in a better world and could spend money not on wars, but on projects such as space exploration.  Astronauts have always been my hero's and I hope they don't become an icon of the past as Knights, Vikings, Indians and Cowboys have become.

Along The Coast

It's good to be back home today even though its a bit quieter now with only one of my little buddies greeting me at the door.  After slipping off my boots, I opened my duffle bag and took out the little wooden box that contained the ashes of my little girl cat.  Before coming home, I stopped by the vets office to pick up her cremated ashes.  I was kind of surprised by how small the box was and yet how heavy it felt.  I walked across the room and sat her on a shelf in the corner where she loved to nap and picked my little boy cat up and walked to the bedroom.  After sitting down on the bed and scratching his ears for a few moments we both fell on the bed and went fast asleep.  I awoke to him about 45 minutes later kicking me in the head as he tried to push me over for more room on the bed.  After lying there for a few minutes I peeled off my clothes and took a shower.  Being tired I forgot to shave, so I now have a slight beard growing. 

After the shower, I slipped on a pair of boxer shorts and me and the cat went to the kitchen to raid the fridge.  I could tell by the look my cat gave me after he inspected the fridge that I wasn't the only one disapointed to find only fruits and vegetables there and one lonely can of unopened tuna fish.  This is what happens when you live with a doctor who makes you eat healthy food.  So it appears I'll be doing some food shopping later today. 

After sharing a piece of cheese with the cat I decided to throw my sea clothes into the washer and then proceeded to play some video games but I got bored with that.  Part of me wants to go workout and hit the bags a little and then the other part of me is content after having a shower and feeling clean to stay that way and just relax and read a book.  After talking to Gareth on the phone and finding out he won't be home til late I decided to go see a movie, not sure which one yet, then do some grocery shopping.  Looks like its just going to be a boring day.
