A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a website called Widgetheads.net. It was a website dedicated to Delta, including news, fleet information, among many other components. What impressed me the most about the site was the fleet information, down to the tail and livery of the plane. Sadly, it recently ceased with a note on the site.
Dear Fellow Widgetheads,
I regret to inform you that Widgetheads.net has shut its doors for good. This decision was made due to circumstances that are out of my control. However, the decision has absolutely nothing to do with any legal issues regarding Delta Air Lines. Please do not contact me offering assistance in any way, including financial or informational. There is no way to bring Widgetheads.net back online. I want to thank everyone who has visited the site over the past years, and especially those that contributed. As I’ve said many times before, this site would have not gotten as far as it did if it wasn’t for you. Its status was more than I could have ever imagined. So again, thank you for your support. I am very aware of the impact that this has on the aviation community. Please trust that I would not have done this if there was any possible way to stop it. Don’t let the actions of this website stop you from following the greatest airline on the planet. I trust that all of you widgetheads never lose the Delta Spirit. May the Widget live on forever!
A lot of effort went into creating and maintaining the site, we may not know why it really went away since offers of financial support or informational is not warranted.
While clicking through random links on my iPhone today after landing in Houston, I stumbled upon a reference to a website called 13 Love Stories.
“13LoveStories.com presents a series of short films that redress the absence of such images. Featuring real voices and personal photographs, the films provide direct access to a diverse cross-section of committed couples in and around Los Angeles.”
Here is the overview video of the project put together at UCLA.
With my love of travel, and never knowing who you may meet where, this one I enjoyed.
I don’t often speak out about the topic, but in all points of view, if you are not gay, then why should one care so much… Sad to see a small, small minority being discriminated in a land where we should have the right for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. I guess that the pursuit of happiness was not meant for all… We came so far yet our culture has so much farther to go.

During my travels, I save my receipts from places that were noteworthy to yelp. I finally caught up tonight, after having a very poor experience in Washington DC. I am sure that I will remember a few more that I need to do over the next week. Check out my spot on Yelp, at http://astriker.yelp.com . I also added some YELP Bling to the sidebar in my blog now.
