灼熱ベガス

7月のラスベガスは「こんなに暑いのか!」と正直びっくり!日中は45度越え、日が落ちた夜でも40度近い。ちょっと歩くだけでも体力消耗が大きいので、水分補給と日焼け防止は必須。夏にベガスへ行く方は、メイン通りに近いホテルを取って、休憩を入れながらの観光をするか、メインからちょっと離れた場所の安いホテルを取り、レンタカーでの移動をお勧めします。     

Memorial Day

In observance of Memorial Day 2018, I digitally modified a photo that I had taken at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

Christmas Decorations 2016

I just felt like taking some photos of some Christmas decorations to catch a little Christmas spirit. Here are a few shots.

Only in Israel

With Hanukkah coming up I thought it would be neat to show some things that you will only see in Israel. A perfect parking job. More Women fly F-16’s in Israel than drive cars in Saudi Arabia. Hasidic family crossing sign. Soldiers who bring their kids to work. Sudoku while swimming in the Dead Sea. …

I am a Veteran

She’s smart, so I asked her “What does Presidents Day mean?” I was waiting for something about Barack Obama, George W. Bush or Bill Clinton, etc. She replied, “Presidents Day …

Scary Halloween Story

4th of July in Hawaii

In Hawaii people don’t make as big of a deal about the Independence day of the United States, that is probably due to the large Asian population living in Hawaii. They seem to make a bigger deal out of New Year’s Eve than they do the 4th of July. So this year I went to …

A Soldiers Wish

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,Transforming the yard to a winter delight.The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,Completed the magic that …
