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 …

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 its Christmas spirit.

Orca Encounter Sea World San Diego

I went to the Orca Encounter show at Sea World in San Diego, California.

For me Sea World is doing nothing …

Memorial Day 2017

Naval Air Station Coronado North Island

While passing by the Naval Air Station on Coronado North Island I was amazed by the helicopters that were sitting on the ground and getting worked on. From my understanding these helicopters are used to assist the Navy Seals in completing their missions. Even if it is from afar it is pretty awesome to think …

Political Dumb and Dumber

Kim Jong Un had no military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon. So he …

I was in Las Vegas, Nevada and decided to stop in on the Pawn Stars, t.v. show on the History channel, 24 hour pawn shop to see what it was like. To my surprise the pawn shop wasn’t very big, but it seemed to have a selection of old equipment, toys, art work, cartoons, comic …

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. …
