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 …

Washington D.C. Ticket Agent

In Thailand they have these three wheeled covered vehicles called “tuk tuks.” Riding in one of these vehicles can be quite an experience and give you a different perspective.

California Countryside

Some people say that California is a beautiful state. Apparently they haven’t been anywhere else. Southern California is dry desert that has been sun baked. If you think desert is beautiful, then this is the right place for you. Things don’t really start getting green until you are near San Francisco heading north. If you …

Headstand on the Beach

California is full of interesting people. Here is one instance of a person who was walking down the beach and then for no apparent reason stopped and started doing a headstand. He stayed in that position for at least 15 minutes. Then he took a paddle board out into the ocean and started doing a …

Southern California Style

When it comes to Southern California there is a certain style about the cars most likely due to a large hispanic population. You can find anything from Chevy Imapala’s that are tricked out to cars like this Monte Carlo that has hydraulics and a pretty smooth paint job.

Women’s Empowerment

I went hiking in Los Angeles and Adidas was sponsoring a women’s empowerment event.  I don’t know much about women’s empowerment, but from what I could see the majority of women were wearing yoga pants and they kept getting in lines after they made their Adidas purchase at these different stations.  The different stations would …

Awesome Paint Job on a Garage Door

While in Los Angeles I passed by a house that had their garage door painted to look like several book cases. Although I wasn’t sure if they are trying to identify as being nerdy, maybe they are professors, perhaps a bookworm, or just to be different. No matter what their reasoning, I thought it looked …
