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 …

Do Not Block Fire Door

While I was parking at Target I happened to notice this scene and couldn’t help, but laugh because of the stupidity. It is actually kind of scary if you think about people needing to get out of the building in the event of an emergency, but some brilliant person put a big tree in the …

Broken Belt on Vehicle

I’ve had some real winners for vehicles throughout my lifetime, but I can’t say I ever had a belt break on a vehicle quite like this. After I heard a noise I looked under the hook just to find the source of the noise. Since I didn’t have the tools to fix the issue on …

I have heard about a lot of people who are tired of paying high prices for cable t.v. or satellite t.v. have been making the switch to these streamsmart.tv devices which allow people to watch live t.v. that is being streamed.

Stickers Around Griffith Park

While hiking up Mount Lee in Griffith Park I noticed some stickers stuck to street signs and guardrails and other things. I took the opportunity to post a few stickers myself. Maybe this will drive more traffic to the website. If not, it was still a fun hike.

A bit of lost history captured by Kodak… Cowboys around the Hoodlum Wagon, Spur Ranch, Texas, 1910. Hoodlum Wagon was usually driven by the “Hood” — the wrangler who watched over the horse herd at night. Judging by the saddle style, this unidentified cowboy was working in the late 1870s or 1880s. In his holster, …

California is a Sanctuary State

Watched NBC news tonight only to learn that California has become a sanctuary state. This is not a big surprise since California is probably the biggest liberal state in the union, however California is all about the money and I hope that they will lose federal funding because of this. Whenever a state puts criminals …

The Will to Win

Yesterday I was at a sporting event and I saw this on the back of a person’s t-shirt, so I quickly snapped a photo. Some people want the reward without putting in the effort to earn it. Nothing in this world comes easy. There is no shortcut to victory. If you want victory, you need …

While waiting outside in Japan I heard a noise and happened to look up to see this cicada in a tree. Luckily I had my camera and was able to snap a couple photos of it. If you haven’t ever seen a cicada before they are a pretty wicked look insect.

Have you ever had the urge to ride a roller coaster on the 2nd story of a building that spins? If you have, then I have the ride just for you. In Yokohama, Japan there is a roller coaster called the spinning coaster which does exactly that. It is on the roof of a building, …

While walking over to the White House I passed by the Dwight D. Eisenhower executive building. I really liked the architectural detail in building. It certainly was worth snapping a couple photos.

Impeach Trump Sticker

While walking down the street in Washington D.C. I happened to see a sticker stuck to a lamp post that said, “tRUMP is an ASS IMPEACH THE PUTIN PUPPET” D.C. is a pretty liberal city, however I’m curious as if these liberals actually think things through. In the event of Donald J. Trump being impeached, …

George Washington Statue

Walked through the George Washington University Campus in the Foggy Bottom area of Washington D.C. and passed by this statue. I felt it wouldn’t be right to pass by a statue of one of the greatest leaders in American history and not capture a photo of the moment I had.

Scenery Along the California Pacific Coast Highway

Since I will probably never make the drive again in my lifetime, here are photos I took of different sights, scenery, signs, and other miscellaneous things along the California Pacific Coast Highway 1 between Los Angeles and Monterey. I was told that the views are just absolutely gorgeous and I guess for California standards they …

Bubble Gum Alley in San Louis Obispo

Landing at Salt Lake City

I was trying to figure out what that black spot was.  Is it a swage pond?  Is it a solar panels?  Whatever it is, it is pretty big in size. For the first time in my life I took a flight that landed in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’ve never been to Salt Lake City …
