Green Tip ammo ban.

I don't have all that much play money.  I do what I can to save up and purchase what I can afford.  Unfortunately, the play money pot is raided every time there is an emergency.  But that is another story for another time.

For the past year, I've been focusing on purchasing more ammo so that I could practice more.  (I've also spent some money on some more firearms, but that goes without saying.)  So I've had every thing planned out on what I'll purchase and when I'd approximately have the money.

So, in February I had planned on making a large purchase of 5.56 ammo.  Just a few days before I was to get the final bit of money together there was the announcement that the ATF was taking action on the Green Tip 5.56 ammo.  Even Walmart jacked up their prices on 5.56.  I couldn't afford it at a reasonable price, so I just didn't bother.  I did use a portion of the money for pistol ammo, and the other portion was used to douse a family emergency.

Today the ATF announced that they were going to review their policy.  Maybe ammo prices will go down.  But I'm sure that the prices will stay stupid for a few months anyways.  It's not like I've had any luck finding time to go to the range this year so far, so I should not stress.

I finally watched Disney's "The Little Mermaid."

I have finally gotten around to watching "The Little Mermaid."

I stand corrected.  The official title is "Ariel" according to Adorable Preciousness.

When "The Little Mermaid" came out, I was a bit old for Disney movies.  I went through a period where I didn't see any Disney movies what so ever...  Until I was in college.  I did get to see "The Lion King" played at the school theater, third run.  The girl I was seeing at the time wanted to go, which was the only reason I saw the movie.

It was interesting to watch a Disney movie with college age students.  I had never seen the movie before, and I was surprised by the part where Simba's dad was killed.  Along with another female student who screamed so loud and then the whole theater laughed.

And I took dates to "Toy Story" and "Monster's Inc."  Now, my wife was a big Disney fan.  I borrowed a lot of her DVD's and watched a bunch of Disney movies.  And I've taken her to see a bunch of Disney Films.  But I haven't seen all of them.

It was kind of neat to see "The Little Mermaid" for the first time.  My wife was singing the songs and explaining about different characters and whom she had seen the movie with and which scene was each of her friends favorites.

It was kind of neat.

The Firefly Time-Lapse

Pretty neat.  Time lapse photography of fireflies.  Some of the special effects get annoying, but it is very nice.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer I Believe In Father Christmas

This is an interesting holiday song that I've never heard before.

Merry Christmas!

"And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men."
