On My Birthday In History

Found this after reading an article on the Walther P22 – which I am seriously considering buying to teach the boys to shoot – on blogonomicon. Look up your birthday in Wikipedia and list 3 neat facts, 2 Births and 1 death. BTW to look up your date got to the URL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ and your…

Charisma Carpenter As Wonder Woman

Kim posted how none of the contenders for the new Wonder Woman were up to the standards of Linda Carter. I agree that Linda was a great WW, but I took issue with the image he used of Charisma Carpenter. So here are some counter points. I tried to include them in my comment on…

Rae

I had a shoot with Rae last Wednesday. She’s 5′ 11″ a classic model height. Lean and beautiful, we were shooting fashion because I want to build a portfolio I can show to modeling agencies.
