Here is some art that was in a Thai temple. I really like the depiction of the characters.

Thailand Buddha

Here are some different photos of Buddha statues in Thailand. What is real interesting is the differences between the buddha in Japan and the Buddha in Thailand.

Bellows Air Force Station

Bellows Air Force Station is one of my favorite beaches on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. If you want to go body boarding or just spend the day at the beach, this is a nice perfect sandy beach to do so.

Sights Around Enoshima

I had a very pleasant time walking around Enoshima and taking all the sights, views, and food that there was. The small island gives you some really nice panoramic views, as well as, having the opportunity to take in the local Japanese culture.

Clash Royale Victory Over Donald Trump

Look who I just beat in Clash Royale. Looks like Donald Trump needs to practice a bit more to get up to my level.

Water Dragon

Walking around at Enoshima, Japan I came across this dragon water spout. I’ve never seen anything like this before and thought it was pretty darn cool.

Arachnophobia in Japan

Shrine in Japan

Some of the great beauties in Japan are the shrines and temples. Here is a shrine seen at Enoshima, Japan. I like the way you go through the doorway up the path to the shrine or temple. This is kind of gives the effect of walking on the path to enlightenment.

Equipment Graveyard in Afghanistan

Can you guess what kind of equipment this is?

Nancy Pelosi at the State of the Union Address

What was it that was stuck in Nancy Pelosi’s teeth during the State of the Union address? Was it a piece of chicken? Maybe a piece of spinach? Maybe she’s practicing tying a cheery stem with her tongue? Perhaps a piece of popcorn? Whatever it was she spent a great deal of time during the …

Zoo Med

I received a sticker in the mail for Zoo Med. The funny thing is that I’ve never bought anything from these guys and I don’t ever remember requesting a sticker. If you have a pet or a reptile hopefully this can help you.

Washington D.C. Ticket Agent

Please say some stupid things and a Washington D.C. Ticket Agent shares some of the things they have heard. 1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!) 2. I got a call from …
