Lincoln Memorial


Walked to the Lincoln Memorial and gasp at the massive size. After thinking about it, I realized that it is quite fitting for how much impact Abraham Lincoln made on shaping the United States as a country.

Above Abraham Lincoln’s head it reads as follows:

“IN THIS TEMPLE
AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE
FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION
THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN
IS ENSHRINED FOREVER”

Washington Monument


I enjoyed a pleasant walk around Washington D.C. I was able to get some good photos from different views of the Washington Monument. To be able to be there, see it, touch it, feel what it is like to be there, and be able to share my experience gives me a warm feeling.

Capitol Building


Washington D.C. is home of many spectacular government buildings. Every time I see the capitol building I’m awestruck with the awesomeness, not only of the building, but also what it represents.

The White House


Went to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue today to take a look at the White House. Here are some photos I took while there.

After checking out the White House I happened to notice the National Christmas tree looks like it lost it’s Christmas spirit.

Too Much Monday Morning Excitement


Over the weekend I bought a new pot for my office plant and today I got the plant nicely situated in its new home and then low and behold a bug climbed in through the window and volunteered to be the first bug eaten by the Venus fly trap. What a great way to start off the week!

Orca Encounter Sea World San Diego


I went to the Orca Encounter show at Sea World in San Diego, California. The show has been changed as PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has protested Sea World numerous times and also the movie Black Fish has portrayed Sea World in a negative light. For me Sea World is doing nothing different than any zoo around the world is doing, except that Sea World works hard to help rehabilitate many animals in the wild. I have personally seen Sea World get called down to the local beach to where they captured an injured harbor seal and take it to fix it and then release it back into the wild. Sea World changed their show to be more friendly to the killer whales by showing behaviors that they would normally do in the wild. They showed characteristics of the orcas, hunting techniques, and even the size difference between and orca and a blue whale. Sea World also showed how they care for the orcas. It was certainly a good show and worth the chance to go visit.


After the show I walked back to the orca tank and to my surprise there was an orca that appeared to be sleeping. I talked with the Sea World trainer and she informed me that this particular orca seemed to enjoy sleeping while the others would swim around and learn from each other. The trainer also told me that orca’s can sleep while they are swimming. They do that by shutting down 1/2 of their brain. Even though this orca looks like it shut down 100% of it’s brain, it was pretty amazing to hear.

Overturned Golf Cart

While golfing, a handsome senior gentleman accidentally overturned his golf cart late one afternoon. A very attractive, 40ish, female golfer, who lives in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise and called out, “Are you OK?”

“I’m OK, thanks,” he replied, as he pulled himself out of the twisted cart.

She said, “Come up to my villa, rest a while, and I’ll help you with the cart later.” The old guy noticed her silky bathrobe was partially open, revealing what appeared to be a very nice figure.

“That’s mighty nice of you,” he answered, “but I don’t think my wife would like it.”

“Oh, come on now!” she insisted. She was so pretty and very, very persuasive. He was weak. “Well, OK,” he finally agreed.

After a couple of Scotch and sodas, he thanked her and said, “I feel a lot better now. But I know my wife is going to be really upset. So I’d better go now.”

“Don’t be silly!” she said with a smile, letting her robe fall slightly more open. “Stay for a while. Your wife won’t know anything…..By the way, where is she?”

He replied, “Still under the cart, I guess.”

The American Health Insurance Situation

The medical community is unable to reach consensus on what to do with America’s health insurance situation.

The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.

Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.

The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.”

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.
