Weather here is starting to warm up. Funny hearing the Kuwaitis say that as they should be use to it by now. Alot of them leave for the summer as they are not big fans of the summer heat waves. The roads actually are noticeably less congested and open during the summer. Many ex-pat and Kuwaiti alike leave for the summer. Personally, I do not mind the heat so much.
I am off to the special forces and security conference in Jordan next week. Will post picts upon my return. www.sofexjordan.com Should be a good time. I will report on how it went when I get back home.
A few days after I get back to Kuwait I leave yet again but this time with my lovely wife to go and play in the Dubai softball tourney. http://www.dubaisoftballleague.com/ This site shows the field. What a heck of a good field!!!!! Also there is a bar not more than a hop, skip and stumble away. Actually there is a hotel attached to the field with 3+ bars, 5+ restaraunts and a multiplex movie theatre.

Ok so Marvel has taken back most all their properties so that they may do the films themselves. They supposedly were not that happy with the Hulk movie from several years ago. They are not redoing the movie but the sequel has a whole new cast starring Edward Norton as the Hulk and Liv Tyler as the love interest.
So here is where the cool trivia comes in.
Also this summer Iron Man comes out with Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Ironman. In the Hulk movie Robert Downie Jr plays, Tony Stark. So it will be cool to see them inter weave things a bit in hopes that they start some cross over with several stars/heroes in one movie down the road.
Also the Screenplay for the Hulk was not written by Stan Lee but by it's star Edward Norton. The Hulk trailer is due out in a few short days rumor has it. Check youtube for more once it is out to view the trailer.
For those of you that know I am a huge Donnie Darko movie fan. The writer/director is one heck of an artist. I just wanted to let you all know that Southland Tales is being released on DVD here in a few days and if you have not seen it you should think about picking it up. It has a star studded cast including Seann William Scott, The Rock, Sara Michelle Gellar and many more.
Also if you have the chance check out imdb.com and type in The Box. This is a new one by writer/director Richard Kelly staring Cameron Diaz and James Marsden. The basis for this one is this, if some one comes to your door and gives you a box and says you have 24 hours to make a decision if you push the button in the box you will get 1 million dollars but some one some where on Earth will die what do you do?

I just wanted to say thank you to myspace.com for doing this for the troops. Also a thank you goes out to the performers for taking the time to fly all the way over here as well.

Also keeping me busy lately is getting ready to play in the Dubai Softball Tourney here coming up in April. Heather is accompaning me to the UAE to help root us on to victory.
Setting up the monumental and historic trip to Ireland this summer for Heather, I and the In-Laws is a fun and busy task as well. I actually get a kick out of setting up and doing all the logistics and planning for these kind of trips. Looks like heather and I will have a day in Paris as well to go and see the Louvre.
