I have always wanted to build out of snow, but have never had the opportunity in my adult life. When there have been scraps of snow and I’ve tried to use it, it’s never packed well, and so on. However, the beautiful wad that fell last night is like cold clay. So, well, it had to be a tribute to Calvin & Hobbes.
While in the States, Kim and I went to the Adventure Aquarium in New Jersey. I love aquariums, because things are either colourful, or sharks. These are both good.

After being left to feed himself a Gu chocolate mousse. I said to him, “Hey Wil, smile for the camera!” and he immediately cocked his head to one side and beamed this grin. Smart kid.
Other nephew highlight: Wil running around the house saying, “Gogglygogglygogglygogglygog,” in a serious and important voice, and then looking at me as if I’m a moron for not understanding.
Hello the weirdos who read my blog, here’s some pictures of my recent ho-ho-holidays. Click on each for the full size version.
So let’s begin with my chopped off leg. As you can see, it was not only a very painful and dangerous injury, but also one I had to take very seriously.
Slightly earlier in New York, we did the tourist thing and went up the Empire State Building. What impressed me most was how New York looks an awful lot like a game of Sim City.
