Where does time go? I can clearly remember picking up my very first boxed set of Dungeons and Dragons waaaay back in 1980. I was absolutely amazed that someone had the brilliant idea of making a set of rules for me to use as a mechanic for telling stories of high adventure. I can remember every player I have ever run, maybe not all their names but their faces. How many hours did we spend huddled around a table, speaking in character, solving puzzles, answering riddles and slaying any monsters stupid enough to get in our way? If someone said to me that I have spent 1000 hours playing D&D I would smile and gladly offer to play 1000 more.
So in celebration of the GRAND DADDY of all RPG's we are going to spend the entire show, okay nearly the entire show, reviewing, sharing and comparing this newest edition of D&D to the older ones. We won't pull any punches either. If it's better we will let you know but if it's simply a shadow of its former self, get ready for a goblin style beat down.
So what are you waiting for? Come on in and grab a chair and let's get our D&D on.

The Pyramids and the Pentagonis a detailed study of how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archeological, historical, and religious puzzles.
Focusing primarily upon the classified work of the U.S. Government, The Pyramids and the Pentagoninvites you to take a wild ride into the fog-shrouded past. It's a ride that incorporates highlights such as:
The CIA's top-secret files on Noah's Ark
U.S. Army documents positing that the Egyptian Pyramids were constructed via levitation
Disturbing military encounters with Middle Eastern djinns
Claims of nuclear warfare in ancient India
Links between the Face on Mars and the pharaohs
And many more
Nick Redfern's The Pyramids and the Pentagon clearly and provocatively demonstrates that deep and dark conspiracies exist within the shadowy world of officialdom--conspiracies that have the ability to rock the foundations of civilization, religion, and history to their very core. The strange and amazing secrets of the past are just a heavily guarded government vault away.
Here's Nick's blog filled with his latest reseacher and posting; http://nickredfernfortean.blogspot.com/
What is happening in retirement communities, assisted living facilities and nursing homes? You might imagine quiet reading, crossword puzzles, bingo, maybe some shuffleboard. Think again. Think about sex – unsafe sex.
Much as society might prefer to see older adults as asexual, the rates of STDs among older adults are climbing. Despite rising infections, gay and lesbian older adults remain an invisible population. Yet sex goes on anyway.
HIV/AIDS is not just an LGBT issue but a community issue as well.Terri Clark (Action Aids) & Robert Espinoza (SAGE) address these health disparities among marginalized populations, as well as offer important steps to advance health equity for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
