Cool Pictures

For those who are enduring a brutal summer heat wave in the Western US and Central Europe, here are some pictures of Ireland during the Winter of 2005 and 2006. Currently the Irish are experiencing a very wet Summer. And I wish I could give some of the incredible amounts of rain that Texas is experiencing to the Western US.

Lighting Up... Vader chokes himself...

Found this recent pic of Darth Vader lightening up...

Picture hasn't been altered. It was pulled from the BBC's web site. It's a Star Wars fan dressed up as Darth Vader having a cigarette break during the Star Wars Convention in London.
