What a Day

Today has been a rough day. One of our dogs died. Little Bit was probably the best behaved of our dogs, and he was a good friend. We knew his heart problem would catch up with him, but it's still not easy.

Netscape 8

A couple of days ago, I downloaded the new Netscape 8 web browser. I really like it! It has the best features of both Internet Explorer and Firefox. For Firefox fans, there's tabbed browsing, and all the greatness of Firefox. But what I really like is that you can switch Browser engines between Firefox and IE, and that makes Windows update work with it. Also, there is a button that you can push and go to your web based email (Yahoo, AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, and the like) without having to look through your bookmarks. Also, there are buttons to get your Local and National weather and news. This browser is definately worth trying out!

What I want to do

I'd really love to combine my 2 favorite hobbies, coin collecting and model building into something to make money. What I'd love to do is start my own coin/hobby shop. Problem is, I don't think there are many model builders or coin collectors here where I live, but hey , a man can dream!

Oh No Not Again!

Looks like Hurricane Rita is gonna hit Texas in the next day or so. This is terrible! At least they seem to be more prepared then with Katrina. Here's hoping that there's not much damage!

Mom Reading

Mom Sitting On The Porch Reading.

Ahh The Sweet Taste Of Victory!

Last night, my Washington Redskins scored 13 points in the last 3:46 of the game to beat the hated Dallas Cowboys 14-13! This was the Skins' first win against the Cowboys in 3 years, and the first in Texas since 1995. Even though Washington is 2-0 on the season, they have scored only 2 touchdowns, but their defense has allowed only 20 points in the first 2 games. Oh well, a win is a win!

For all you readers thinking of remodeling your kitchen, I am asking you not to buy kitchen Cabinets from American Woodmark. I'm calling for this boycott because that is the company that my Mom was working at when she got hurt. They had no guards on the machines, and several other people have been hurt there since for lack of safety equipment. This company puts profits before people, and they should be punished for that!

Model Building

Another one of my various hobbies is building model ships and planes. I've been doing it for over 20 years, but only in the past couple of years have I gotten good at it:p My current project is a model of the WWII aircraft carrier USS Ennterprise. I'll post of pic of it when I get done!

This is Totally Wrong!

It just boils me hearing about how the owners of that nursing home in Louisiana let 40 or their residents just drown when the hurricane hit! The scumbags waved of help from someone who said they could evacuate everyone from the home. Can you imagine how those people felt as the water kept getting higher and higher? If it was me, I'd hang those owners from the tallest tree!

And The People Of Oklahoma Voted For This Dummy?

A question asked by Senator Tom Cobourne (R-Oklahoma) to John Roberts during today's Supreme Court Conformation:

"Judge Roberts, would you agree that the opposite of Death is Life?"

Tom, you are a former Dr.! Didn't you learn the answer to that in Med School?

4 Years

I can't believe that it's been 4 years since that day that turned the whole country upside down. I can remember what I was doing that beautiful morning of Sept. 11, 2001. I Slept in a bit late that day, then got up to help my Mom clean house. We always watch the news on CNN in the moring, so when I turned it on, about 10 mins or so after the first plane hit the WTC, I was totally in shock! At first, I thought maybe that it had been an accident, but when the 2nd plane hit, I knew that something was wrong. The attacks have affected just about every aspect of life in the US now. We're involved in a "war on terrorism" that will probably never end, Bush has got us into a war in Iraq that was started due to false information and deception on the Bush administation, and the Government is passing laws that are restricting our basic rights (The Patriot Act). The thing that really kills me is that Republicans are accusing anyone who is against the war in Iraq to be for the Terrorists. Anyone here who knows who Max Cleland is? He was a Demacratic Senator from Georgia who was defeated for reelection in 2002, because his opponent accused him of being unpatriotic because he was against the war. How the fuck can you call a man who lost both his legs and an arm after being hit by a grenade while serving in Vietnam, another dubious war. I have no respect for anyone who uses the deaths of 3,000 people for political gain, regardless of party. We Americans are tough and determined and we will preservere!

A Coin With A Story

This is a 1923 Peace Dollar with a hole in it where someone made a necklace out of it. My Dad found this in a sewer when he worked for Fairfax Co., VA, and carried it in his wallet for 10 or 15 years. He gave it to me when I started collecting coins when I was 9 or 10.

A Reassesment

After watching the horror that the hurricane victims are going through, I have decided not to complain about everything bad that happens to me anymore. What I go through every day is nothing compared to what the people down in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are going through!

So Long Sid!

The Orioles finally did something right: today, they released Sidney Ponson. After winning 17 games 2 years ago, he has slowly slid downhill. He's had weight problems (look's who's calling the kettle black!) , been arrested 3 times over the past year for drunk driving, got arrested for punching a judge out in his native Aruba, and generally had a bad attitude. If I was him, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting on anyone to sign me. Dude, get your head on straight, you have lots of potential!

Another Year Older!

Today's my birthday! I turned 34. Man, It seems like only yesterday, I was only a kid in school! Where have all the years gone? Oh well, time flies when you're having fun!!!
