Picture of the Day

Posted in Uncategorized on October 27, 2008 by Adam Housley

Itttttttttttttttttttttt’s back! When the blogs over on foxnews.com all got combined, for the most part, some of the fun stuff got stuck on the back burner. I am still confident once that site is rebuilt I’ll have more freedom, but until then, here it is. Who, What, Where, When, Why, and how? We need to find John and a few others to join in again on the fun!

One BIG Foot!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 20, 2008 by Adam Housley

Maybe we can get LDG to take a jaunt over to the mountains and check this one out for us. You know, when I first saw this story, I thought what better time to bring up conspiracy theories. I have a photographer friend in Sacramento who is all into this stuff (within reason). I even bought him a book about it, just to feed the addiction. Anyway….here is the story:  A team of Japanese adventurers say they have discovered footprints they believe were made by the legendary yeti said to roam the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet.
“The footprints were about 20 centimetres (eight inches) long and looked like a human’s,” Yoshiteru Takahashi, the leader of the Yeti Project Japan, told AFP in Kathmandu on Monday.
Takahashi was speaking after he returned with his seven-member team from their third attempt to track down the half-man-half-ape, tales of which have gripped the imaginations of Western adventurers and mountaineers for decades.
Despite spending 42 days on Dhaulagiri IV — a 7,661-metre (25,135-foot) peak where they say they have seen traces of yetis in the past — the team failed in their prime objective of capturing one on film.
But Takahashi said the footprints were proof enough.
“Myself and other team members have been coming to the Himalayas for years and we can recognise bear, deer, wolf and snow leopard prints and it was none of those,” he said.
“We remain convinced it is real. The footprints and the stories the local tell make us sure that it is not imaginary,” he added.

Baseball’s Post Season

Posted in Uncategorized on October 4, 2008 by Adam Housley

Only spring, when even the Giants have dreams of the post season, does baseball get any better. The post season is here and it looks like the Cubs are going to struggle once again. Right now they are two games down and just two innings left against the Dodgers to try and keep their season alive. I gotta believe many were pulling for the Cubbies, but once again it looks like ‘wait til next year.’ In any case, I am on the list to cover the World Series, if it ends up with a west coast team. I did cover the 2004 series in St. Louis when the Red Sox broke the curse of the Bambino! Just a heads up also, if you go to MLB.com, you can click on ‘TBS Hot Corner’ and see 4 different camera angles live. Very cool this internet thing!
