Sebastian (the dog) and Vaquero (the cat) were both adopted last year and quickly fell into being best buds. One is never far from the other, and have become a tag team for getting into trouble, with Vaquero opening doors and cabinets and Sebastian doing the heavy lifting of bringing their ill gotten gains back to their bed to be enjoyed. Sebastian is the family protector, and always tries to make sure that myself and Vaquero are safe and secure!

Get ready Star Wars fans! Football and fantasy mixed during Monday Night Football last night when a two-and-half-minute trailer for the highly-anticipated new Star Wars movie debuted during halftime of the game on ESPN between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants. The trailer premiered as advance tickets went on sale ahead of the December 18th opening of Star War Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the seventh film in the franchise and the first in a decade, with theater and movie ticket sites swamped and experiencing loading problems. The movie is set 30 years after the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi — the third film released in the series, but the sixth and most recent in the chronology of the Star Wars saga — and has new cast members as well as the stars from the original 1977 movie — Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. Though the trailer is filled with action, the plot is kept vague, whetting fans’ appetites while giving little away.
