Where is Samuel L. Jackson when you need him? The Soap Box Issue

The other day I found myself wishing Samuel L. Jackson was on my flight to Vancouver.  Not because I am huge fan, although I do think he is quite a good Actor.  And not because he is one of my Island or Dinner fantasy attendees.  No, because he knows what to do about Snakes on […]

Ancient Antiquities like you’ve never seen before
