Order Your Copy TODAY!!!
Calliope Reaper-Jones is Death's Daughter. She owes a debt to Cerberus, the three headed dog that guards the gates of hell - a debt that involves a trip to Purgatory, Las Vegas, ancient Egypt, and a discount department store that's more frightening than any supernatural creature she'll ever encounter.
Well, Today I FINALLY got to meet Amber Benson in Person after a few months of Twitter and blog Comments passed back and Forth, as well as her help in signing my Sister's Christmas Present. She is Just as wonderful in Person. I always have Her Blog up on DHD, But just in case you have not gone.......http://amberbensonwrotethis.blogspot.com/2010/02/cats-claw-book-tour-10.html
Yesterday I got To see Georgia Moffett, who played "The Doctor's Daughter" in the episode of the Same name. http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/s4/episodes/S4_06 . This was fantastic for all Fans as her Father Played One of the Doctor's in the original series. If you ever get the chance ask her about her "fish Phobia"
Next up was Andrew Hayden Smith, one of my favorites, and not just because he is openly gay. He was in Four Episodes of the Second Year of Doctor Who.
And Finally, Tommy Knight, who plays Luke Smith on the Sarah Jane Adventures.
Order Today!
I even got to Go to a "Kaffeeklatch" with Tommy with just 10 other fans of the show. We had just the best time for two hours just sitting around talking. He is such a great kid, and his mum is really great as well, If only she could stop him from eating "sweets"!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av8PfjDr9Og Here is a Fan's Video Tribute.

Anyway, off to bed. Flying Home to PA tomorrow so probably no Blog for a day or so.

So I am Currently Attending the Gallifrey One Convention in Los Angeles. Now, Stupid CB left his Camera Cord Back in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska so until I get a new one the only photos I can upload are taken with my I-Phone, Hense the Poor Quality. I am still taking Photos with my other camera though and will share them soon. So Bellow enjoy some shots of Gallifrey One!

Dutch To Anchorage to.....OLIVE GARDEN (oh yeah, Seattle too)


Got an early flight out of Dutch and made it to Anchorage abot 8pm last night. After a trip to McDonalds hung out and Twittered for a bit until my midnight flight to Olive Garden (Also known as Seattle).

Just for Manderzz, At the Borders at the Westlake Mall.

Nirvanna........

Venetian Sunset.......

Salad, yes I at the entire Bowl! In my Defense it has been six months since I last had Olive Garden, and the lettuce we get in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska is never this fresh!

I absolutely love the Seasonal Specials at Olive Garden. This time I tried The Four Cheese Stuffed Pansotti (Pyramid Ravoili) with Grilled Chicken. I ate all this too and had to actually waddle from the restaurant.
I was sooooo Full I could not shop!!
So I went and Saw Sherlock Holmes instead.
Good, not great, but good.
The Previews for Iron Man 2 Look Great though!

More tomorrow

Prayers to St Michael, Last Sunday Brunch Before Trip, Twitter Buddies,Goodnight Captain, Doctor Who?, Snow, Beach Walks, Bowling and even a Video!

Lots of Special People to Pray for this week. Saint Michael the Archangel please keep your ears open for the prayers of Mystic, Jake and Josh, and Katherine this week.
It's a cold Blustery day up Dutch Harbor way.....

...and Jack in characteristic fashion says Hello.

Willie is working on his quiche,

........Chefboy is plating salad.....

And Junior just finished with smoothies! (Notice the Smile, Thanks CD for Blackmail Photos!!!)

Why the smoothies are so good even I will have one!

Now the next few photos are for my Twitter Buddies @Meerkatfeinated & @thechickenchic (Strawberry photos later for you CC) !

If you are not following these two you should be! They are just too much fun.



Now here is a salad my Dad would have loved. Easter Egg Radish (See "whole" examples of them at the top of the dish) over Arugula with strawberries and hearts of palm. Dad could sit down with a bag of radishes and some salt on a plate and just munch away.



Yes, Junior looks tired, Just wait till you see the size of the strawberries!! No Wonder!!


Obviously this has nothing to do with playing video games all night........



And now, just for @thechickenchic ........



Super Strawberries!!


Good Night Captain.

Miss You two!! See you when I get back.

OK, So Where Am I going? Well Home to PA to See the Mum and Sis eventually but first to a Doctor Who/Torchwood Convention in LA this coming weekend. Yup, CB will be in LA from Thursday till Monday. May God Help you all!

I'll take a TARDIS and a Doctor to go Please!

Did not mean to spring this on you all so fast, but Dan's Plans Changed which made it possible for me to go to this convention, and I wanted to tell you all, but with all the Awful news the past few weeks I just have not had the Chance. So ANYWAY next week's Brunch will be from LA.

Headed out With Dan http://www.danslife.net/2010/02/free-trip-deadline/ after some snow the other Day up to near Ski Bowl. Make sure to head over to his blog and enter for a chance at a trip to Dutch Harbor/Unalaska!! For FREE!!! Go, GO now!!

For those of you who follow me on Twitter (@Carlisleboy) you know that it has been a great weather week up here with lots of blue skies and Sun. Out at the Airport it was so blinding the other day I just had to take a photo, or three.

I did not get a chance to post these photos from last Sunday because of my busy week and not real post since Tuesday so.........Bella on the Beach with CD and Manderzz!

Well CD, She sure is not afraid of the Water any more!!!

I don't know what it is about this spot but I always get the best photos right here.

Then Later Bowling with Junior, Juno, CD and Manderzz. (Bella was left at home as she would blow us away. Great Bowler even without opposable thumbs)

Look, There is Lourdes, The Grand Master of the Unisea Galley! Go Lourdes Go!!

It might look small to those in the lower 48, but I bet none of YOUR bowling alley's have views like this!!

Yes, Junior Won, But not by much!!

Anyway though, my next post will be from Anchorage or Seattle.

Keep up those Prayers!
