Aspie Vlogs 10: Called Cops, Signal Struggles, Kiwanis


It’s been over a year, but I finally put together another Aspie Vlogs!  In this episode, I explain what happened that involved me calling the police, I show off some broken infrastructure including burnt out and missing ped signals and traffic light sensors that have never been replaced since the road was repaved.  I also recorded a friend talking about me at a latest Kiwanis club meeting, enjoy!

Anniston Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast 2017


People turned out in droves for the 2017 Anniston Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast at the Anniston City Meeting Center.  This event this year raised around $60,000 to provide low-income children with clothing and school supplies for the new school year in August.  Along with Kiwanis volunteers, Key Club volunteers from area high schools and Circle K volunteers from Jacksonville State once again helped out in the breakfast.

You can also find photos on the Geek Alabama Facebook page, Google Photos, and on Flickr too!

So, at the end of covering all the events in the Birmingham Metro.  I went to the top of a parking garage, and took some photos of the downtown landscape.  I also stopped by and took a few photos of the Christmas tree at Lynn Park in Birmingham.  Enjoy!

See Pictures From The First Talladega Christmas On The Square

The City of Talladega did something very smart!  They closed down three sides of the Talladega downtown square for three days, and turned the closed down areas into a Christmas wonderland event!  One side had many vendors who were ready to sell their goods for a perfect Christmas gift.  One side had a Santa’s workshop where kids could build things, and there were several food trucks available as well.  And one side had Santa Claus visits, Christmas carols, a tubing slide, a giant Christmas tree, and more!

Let’s not forget the Ritz Theater who was playing classic Christmas movies throughout the event, and downtown businesses along the square who were open and ready to sell stuff as well.  This was all a part of the first annual Talladega’s Christmas on the Square.  I thought what Talladega did was brilliant!  Events like this is what brings communities together!  I hope other towns will do something similar to what Talladega did during the 2017 Christmas season.

Below, enjoy some pictures from this event.  Hopefully it will be back for the 2017 Christmas season!  Learn more at: http://christmasintalladega.com/

In Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham, if you enjoy the cold and Winter season, like I do, you can lace up some skates and enjoy the downtown high-rise buildings on an ice skating rink!  That’s right, an ice skating rink!  Birmingham has turned into Brrrmingham!

Open through January 16th, the 50′ x 70′ outdoor rink is located on Railroad Park’s 17th Street Plaza for all to enjoy. The rink is open seven days a week, including Christmas and New Years. The Boxcar is fully stocked with hot chocolate and other cold weather fare. Railroad Park is also hosting birthday parties, holiday parties, and corporate gatherings at the rink.

The park will also host different theme nights open to the public, including “Tacky Sweater Night,” “UAB Blazer Night,” “Neon Night,” etc.  Tickets are $10 per person for a 2 hour session on the rink including the skate rental!  Two hour sessions begin at 11 am on weekdays and 10 am on Friday and Saturday.

Here is a short video and pictures I took at the rink.  No, I don’t know how to skate and will not risk falling over multiple times!  Learn more at: http://railroadpark.org/iceskating.php

Ice skating at Railroad Park, it's Brrrrmingham tonight!
