In 30 years it will be almost impossible for today's kids to imagine a world where photos, videos, even audio clips aren't easily manipulated, mashed together, shared instantly, and archived forever on the web. Heck - they won't even refer to it as the web - it will simply be "the cloud". Back in my day though some of my fondest memories were the summer road trips that my mom took my sister and I on to destinations across the country and in Canada too.

For the past 30 years, Ford owners have been gathering in Southern California for one of the coolest car shows I've had a chance to attend recently. While there are others with fancier, more expensive, and more variety of makes and models, Fabulous Fords Forever was clearly a show that was special. 

With more than 1,800 entries from 57 classes, this is the largest "All Ford Show" in the western united states and at times it was pretty overwhelming - even for someone like me that LOVES Ford in almost all of its incarnations from Ford Racing to Mustangs and tucks too.

The Internet has been abuzz with talk of this week's big movie opening, the latest release from the Marvel Studios. This, of course, is the second installment in the Avengers franchise, sequel to the third highest grossing film of all time, and we got a chance to see it earlier this week. Will it live up to the hype?
