A Lifelong dream

I know it's been a long time since my latest blog entry, but there simpli wasn't anything to write about.

This changed a couple of days ago when I was spending my time at the slovenian coast for the weekend. In the camp where I was spending my nigths, they had a pretty nice example of Stern's Monopoly and on it, after spending a good portion of my vacation playing it, I have accomplished something that I've always strived for. They say that a picture tells more than a 1000 words so here it is:

Checked, I have beaten the high score on a publicly placed pinball :).


  1. Nice work! Kudos to a fellow pinball fan.

    I recently had the pleasure of attending the 2010 Pacific Pinball Expo. They had almost 400 machines there...and I took a photo of every one!

    If you'd like to take a look, you can check out the gallery here:

  3. Hey J.J., congrats on your high Monopoly score. I'm sure it's taken a LOT of practice to make that happen!

    May you get lots of other "high scores" in life as well.

  4. Hi JJ,

    Didn't know where else to post this, so putting it here. Want to let you know about a pinball video I just produced that might be of interest. It's about a guy named Jeff Miller who restores pinball machines. A great 'follow your passion' story. Hope you enjoy it:
