In My Own Words:
I am a Real Estate Broker in the southern part of silicon valley (Morgan Hill).(Get in touch if you want to buy or sell a house! ;-)... ok... shameless plug). I love nearly everything about this business. I enjoy visualizing what a home can be, seeing different types of architecture and meeting some of the characters you come across in any business that deals with the public.

Here is a quick lis… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Readable, July 16 2004
Confession time. I expected this book to really put me to sleep. So why did I buy it? Well.... the recent release of the movie "Troy" peaked my interest in the classical world, so here I am.
But surprise, I found myself captivated with this discussion of the Greek world. If you have any interest in the classical world, this would be a great place to start.
Now I know a little something about boring history books. I majored in history and even taught it at the high school level for a short time. Trust me, I have shelves full of stinky, boring required reading from my college days and from later attempts to look deaper into specific historical topics. This was a breath of… Read more

The acting is excellent, the editing flows very well and the cinematography is great. Then there is the story and concept. Take comics and strip away the leotards, capes and unbelievable super powers and you end up with people who are amazing for believeable "powers".

3.0 out of 5 stars Just plain goofy, July 7 2004
Ok... I really like this movie. But in honesty there can be a little too much lag between the really funny parts.
There are some great snapshot moments that will stick with you and make you laugh.
Sometimes around the house I can hear my wife or one of my boys say "Wanna buy a monkey?".... aaahhh... I love that.
And Lord help me, there is just something unbelievably funny about a floppy dancing Chris Elliott being pelted on the head by beer cans. Comic genius? Hardly - but damn if it does not crack me up every time I think about it.
