When I was growing up, I loved building things. My dad bought me my first tool set when I was 7 years old. It consisted of genuine child-sized tools, and included a real hammer, hand saw, pliers, screwdrivers, measuring tape, and a “carpenter’s pencil.” My earliest childhood memories include many instances when I helped my dad or grandfather with building projects.
On New Year’s day (in the evening), my wife and I went to the theatre and saw the movie Avatar. I wanted to see it after observing its meteoric rise in popularity (and sales), not only in the United States, but all over the world.
