I'm an Oil Tycoon!! You probably don't know this but I'm an Oil Tycoon. I'm right there with T. Boone Pickens, John D. Rockefeller, J. Paul Getty, and H.L. Hunt.

This week 5-10-16 Obvious? I was watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull  last week. It's pretty good. The chase scene is great, although I didn't really buy the kid swinging through the trees with the monkeys any more than Crouching Tiger.. I now have a new fear of ants, especially really big ants (it you haven't seen the movie, the ants are the Yuk scene). I probably won't kick any more fire ant hills any time soon.
