TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3196:

We are back from the 2010 Comic-Con International: San Diego, (a.k.a. SDCC), which officially ended last night at 5PM. Of course Tina and I didn't make it out of the exhibitors hall at that time, as we were conducting a last minute bulk purchase for our online store as we usually do on the last day!

Plus neither Tina nor myself have a blog ready for this morning, so I'm going to start the first blog from the 2010 Comic-Con with a guest post from my youngest son who wanted to share his thoughts about one of the off-site parties that we were invited to.  Please note that Vinnie is a 'tween' and this is his POV of that party. (I'll be posting my thoughts on this same party in the days to come.)


'Celebrating Captain Rochester At Comic-Con'

A Guest Blog Post by Vinnie

Thursday, July 22nd, there was an "After Con" party hosted by Rochester Electronics celebrating the third promotional comic for Rochester Electronics, 'The Adventures of Captain Rochester'. It was also to celebrate the first set of the Captain Rochester trading card series.

The party was at the Palm Restaurant, a couple of blocks away from the San Diego Convention Center. It is an Italian themed restaurant, as was the food.

All over the walls were drawings of famous people in history, comic book heroes, and just random cartoons.  The place was calming and enjoyable, and the food was delicious!

There were at least 70 - 110 people attending this party, and many are famous comic and cartoon illustrators.

I had a "One-In-A-Million" chance to dine with 2 famous comic book illustrators, Bob Burden and Sergio Aragones. Bob Burden is the illustrator for 'The Flaming Carrot' and 'Mystery Men', and Sergio is the illustrator for Mad Magazine and Groo.  Both Bob and Sergio were polite, well-mannered, and fun to have dinner with.

I of course asked Sergio to have a picture with him, and he did so.  The picture can be seen to the left.

We got to eat a Red Velvet Rochester Cake.  It was a sheet cake with a Captain Rochester themed top layer of frosting.  It tasted wonderful and was magnificent in its Captain Rochester theme, but what made it top-notch was that Sergio served it to me! What a guy!  That made this my favorite "After Con" Party I have gone to.

For my final words of this post, I just want to say to Rochester Electronics: 

Congratulations on the Third Issue, and the New Trading Card Set! That Party was much fun, and I wouldn't mind attending a 100th Issue Celebration! 

Continue Your great work on making people aware of the importance of quality in the semiconductor industry in this fun way!


Thanks, Vinnie for guest blogging here today!  I would have to agree that this Party was Fabulous! I will be posting a blog about this party in the future also and adding my thoughts about it, the 3rd issue, and the trading card set in future blog posts after I recover from this 2010 Comic-Con!

Until then, YOU can check out the Captain Rochester Facebook Fan Page by clicking here!  

Tina and I would like to thank George Karlias of Rochester Electronics for allowing us to bring our 'Official Comic-Con Photographer' to this fabulous party.  As you can see, it definitely made a 'big impression' on him...enough that it was the 1st guest blog that he wanted to do!

Plus it was the first blog to be posted about this 2010 San Diego Comic-Con International in the widely read Blog.

And...My thanks again to all of YOU reading this blog and our archived blog posts, now over the 3,195 total posts in number!
