Marvels that fascinate!

4/4/20009 Sailing ships.
Here is another of my favorite time lines in the world, the old ships that sailed the high seas. I love movies that have these older ships in them.

As I watch them I am amazed at how they were ale to build them and actually sail across the oceans, especially when the storms raged on them.

I don't have any desire to ever have been on one of them as a crew member or anything like that. I just love the way they moved on the seas and survived the storms.

It's fascinating to me to watch them rise and dip in the waves of the oceans. The water breaking over the bow and sides, sometimes the thing looks like it's going under, then it pops back up.

Ooooh yeeeaaah!

4/2/2009 Oooooh yeeeaaah!
A good friend of mine gave me a heart gift for Christmas 08. I work for him and met him up town for my paycheck and he opened the truck of his wife's car and said here these are for you.

This is what he gave me, a pair of hard-sided leather saddle bags. oh yeah I was happy.

Here's another shot, they look good. It's good to have good friends.

Here's a shot looking down my hyper-charger. Along with the power commander they boost horsepower and reaction to throtle response. Look out don't get sucked down these intakes.

Twisted priorities!

3/30/2009 Twisted priorities!
Well our Country has done it again. What you ask? They have went and enacted one of those idiotic laws that's about as stupid as it comes. Read on!!!!
Spokane County, Washington (the state) became the launch pad last July for the nation's strictest ban on dishwasher detergent made with phosphates, a measure aimed at reducing water pollution. The ban will be expanded statewide in July 2010, the same time similar laws take effect in several other states.
To beat it all the new detergents don't even work.
This country passes the most stupid laws I know.
They care more for the environment than they do their own people. What about all the "GROWTH" hormones and "STEROIDS" and preservatives they put into our foods everyday? There are tests that prove these are affecting our health and especially the health of our youth. They don't care for the health of the poeple but will ban everything coming down the pick to save a tree, a bush or a weed. Can't do anything to upset the mighty dollar.
When it comes down to "ENVIRONMENT vs MANKIND", man will lose everytime.
I'm all for taking care of our world, but our main concern must be the people who inhabit it first.
