What NOT to do when getting a speeding ticket

My favorite song

Someone asked me earlier what my favorite song was earlier and I couldn't answer. I had to think about it and finally I narrowed it down. If you ask me tomorrow it might change!

McCain supporter attack was a hoax...

The woman who said that she was attacked because of her McCain bumper sticker made it up, and not only that, she is a campaign volunteer!

I had my doubts when I saw the picture of the B carved on her face was backwards-like she used a mirror?!

Rare footage of London Circa 1904

Via Sky News

An exerpt:

It's a film that's been hidden from view for more than a century and now I have been invited to see London life on the big screen - 1904-style.

The historian stumbled on the footage, 104 years after it was filmed, while doing a routine search in the Australian National Film Archive.

This is only a little bit of the 12 minute silent documentary called Living London, made by American film pioneer Charles Urban.

Poor horse!

"The young filly needed to be freed from the tree after curiosity got the better of it and it wedged its head between separate sections of the trunk.

The horse, called Gracie, was unable to free itself and could have been in danger were it not for a passer-by who was able to come to the rescue after he heard the horse whinnying .

Jason Harschbarger, a neighbour in the town of Pullman, West Virginia, USA, arrived at the scene which resembled the image of Winnie the Pooh getting stuck in the honey tree.

Mr Harschbarger collected his tools and was able to carefully set the horse free by using a chainsaw to slowly cut the wood around its neck.

However, before he did so, he was able to take a few photographs.

Fortunately for Gracie, she was able to escape her ordeal with only a few minor injuries and, according to Mr Harschbarger, is on the road to recovery.

Following his rescue operation, Mr Harschbarger told a local television station: "She has a few cuts on her face and ear.

"Last I heard her jaw was a little dislocated but I think it is healing up and she can eat on her own again."

It remains unclear why Gracie put her head into the gap." story via and Bits and Pieces

Fear, bigotry, racism and hatred...

This is all over the news today:

And their point is? Fear, bigotry, racism and hatred. It is getting to the point of ridiculous that they are using fear to discredit instead of using the issues. If this is what a party is reduced to in desperation to garner votes, it's pathetic and I cannot believe that people are falling for it! Some of their own are even jumping ship!

If I were a republican I would be so offended being referred to as "Joe six-pack" and having my own party instill fear and hatred to garner my vote. People are angry, stressed and scared about our economic health and we get this crap from them instead of reassurance? Then on top of it being called unpatriotic because I don't live where Palin happens to be visiting?

I guess the Socialism angle isn't working to well:

I think they have a lot to be worried about.

This cracked me up..

While at Target...

Some idiot hit my car while parking and didn't wait around...

It wasn't meant to be..

I was still torn on whether to keep the puppy earlier today. Rick's son Brian was over and was holding her and she starting having a seizure. I held her and she finally came out of it and acted normal as if nothing had happened.

I had a dog, Bouncer, who had seizures for years and she lived to be 14 so I wasn't too worried about that being a factor although I was worried why the puppy just started having one.

A little later, Rick was holding her, petting on her. She started having another one. Rick handed her to me and about 30 seconds later she was back to normal and while I was kissing on her she went totally limp and died in my arms.

I tried doing CPR but it didn't work. I am still in shock. It brought back so much, having just lost Randy. It brought back losing Bouncer and Reggie who I lost and had tried CPR on him as well.

She was such a cute little precious puppy and I'm so freaking mad and upset that this happened.

To puppy or not to puppy

This is the puppy I woke up to today. Rick brought her home in a campaign to get me to fall in love with her and want to keep her. She is a mix between a chihuahua and a terrier of some sort. Still undecided...

Fossil HIV

Using a technique called molecular clock analysis, they were able to plot the two viral sequences' evolutionary path back in time to determine when they diverged.

They concluded the strains evolved from a common ancestor that emerged in Africa near the beginning of the twentieth century around 80 years before the disease appeared in western populations.

Back Home

The last day we called in for an extended checkout until 6pm and wondered around the beach some more. We had a great last lunch at Burgers in Paradise and wondered around the beach some more.

Finally we slowly wandered back to the hotel to clean up for the trip home and get everything organized. I had packed most everything the night before thankfully!

From our balcony we saw a bunch of sea turtles out from the beach a bit. I think they might have been there the whole time but we didn't notice them. I have a thing about heights so I didn't look straight down much. Actually I think twice. I was talking to my friend Ginger when we first got there and I looked down-I think she could hear the panic in my voice!

The flights were fine, I was able to sleep a bit. We got in at about 12:45pm central time and I had to work the next day. It was tough. I am slowly losing my sunburn. Rick had an extra 2 days off to recover. I'm still in shock I think!

I'll post the last of the pictures this weekend and maybe a video or two.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far :)

Lost on the Kamehamaha Highway AKA Highway Ends Here

With directions from google maps in hand, we set off to see the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. We felt really good about how things were going until we see a sign that says "highway ends here"!

We make an illegal U-turn to get back in the direction we came from and find a Jack-In-The-Box where a nice oriental couple tells us how to get going in the right direction. Somehow we had missed a turn-off and had gone way out of the way.

We finally make it to the memorial and I am really glad we did. It is such a humbling experience and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. It was so nice and peaceful there and there was a nice gentle rain while we were there.

We made it back to Waikiki without getting lost! After eating we walked up Kalakaua avenue and I walked on the beach a bit. We made it back to the hotel and I finally talked Rick into walking on the sand. It was really relaxing to feel the sand between my toes.

We have to return the car and check out by 11 AM and we have until about 6:15 PM until the bus picks us up to take us back to the airport and back home...sigh...I don't want to leave.

We get back home on Sunday around 1 PM and I have to work on Monday-jet lag, sun burn and all! I may wear a Hawaiian shirt to work in protest of not wanting to be back!

North Shore by convertible

We finally rented a car, a nice Chrysler Sebring and headed off. After 30 minutes of getting lost after the first turn from the car rental agency we finally headed around the bed of Diamond Head. Here is a google map of our route:

We stopped a lot and took some pictures and at little roadside stands that sell fresh fruit and gifts.

We had some of the famous shaved ice from Matsumoto shaved ice in Haleiwa.

We finally ended out day at the Polynesian Cultural Center for dinner and a show.

I think it is the season for Japan and Australia to come here as that is the majority of the people we have seen most of the trip so it was funny while we were at dinner Rick hears a man ask in a heavy southern drawl "Ya'll got any ketchup?"!

We made it back to the hotel with only one wrong turn on the way back. I am tired, and sunburned to a crisp. Rick is cranky, more sunburned and more tired than I am! We both look like lobsters. All in all it was a good day and well worth renting the car. We have the car tomorrow so there is no telling where we will get lost!

We finished the day off at 11:00PM at Hagen Daaz-me a green tea ice cream in a waffle cone and Rick had a Hawaiian smoothie.

The scenic route...

We started off lost and it kept getting worse. We took the bus ride from hell and couldn't seem to get the bus drivers to help find where we were going!

What should have taken 20 minutes to find ended up taking 2 hours! We finally made it to the Iolani Palace and took the tour. After the palace tour Rick found someone on the street that gave us even more bad directions and we walked and walked until we finally got good information from a man walking his dog.

We got on a trolley and made it back around 7:00PM (We started at Noon!)

We took some pictures on our scenic tour and some were from Rick's camera from yesterday:
