The number one toy for this Xmas Big Hugs Elmo- a blog for men

The toy to have this Christmas for kids and the one that you will probably not be able to get……… Big Hugs Elmo.

There is something every year that makes it to top spot! And this year it looks like its going to be Big Hugs Elmo!

Not that I am really a fan for this age group of toy but I do have a son who may completely disagree. So order yours now before they run out of stock

I am still waiting for the big day my son comes home and says “Dad can I watch Star Wars”. I was about his age when it came out.

This is what I want

Humans! what are we doing here?

Humans! What are we really all about?

Do you ever get that feeling that for a couple of seconds you are removed from your every day life to briefly ponder………………..what the heck am I doing here. It happened to me yesterday! Literally my fear and understanding of everything vanished. My connection to my everyday pointless life was lost.

It felt great.

Are we living in the matrix? Is anything we do really worth doing? Imagine how much fun we would have if we didn’t have to worry about money! Yes I think that’s what I discovered yesterday. The controlling aspect of money! For ten hours per day I do not see my family because of money and the need to earn it. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind working I just wish that I knew what I am working towards.

Of course these questions are bigger than I will ever understand. Just a thought.

Could you fly a real Boeing 737 airliner?

Ever wondered if you could fly a real airliner? Well this guy actually did it. He was basically given a month in a simulator and  had a go in the real thing. ……. A Boeing 737.  His family were onboard also………Brave man.

The video is below. It makes me think of building a Boeing 737 in my own home. Watch out for the next post…….You may be surprised.

Something to watch at the weekend- The Dark Night Rises

The Dark Night Rises.

If you are an action movie fan and have not seen it yet then the Dark Night Rises is for you.

I was put off this movie because of the hype surrounding it. And I am glad that I did! Last night when everyone went to bed I put it on. I was hooked right from the very beginning. I won’t give anything away in case you have not seen it but Nolan has created a master piece here. The action is immersive and believable and the acting first rate. Bane played by Tom Hardy is a show stealer.

Watch the Trailer
