San Diego Airport

Here are some things I saw while at the San Diego airport. One was a group of people that were all white and the title of it is, “At the Gate.” The other photo was of the Spirit of Saint Louis airplane.

Kansas City Southern Train

thekumachan_Kansas_City_Southern_Train-1
I was in traffic, looked over, saw this train, and snapped a quick photo of it. It made me wonder, was it this train that got somebody out of this town? Did this train bring somebody into this town? Was this train the one where people dreams began or was it the one where they ended? Whichever it was, this vessel was the backbone that carried those aspirations and burdens. It must be quite the vessel.

West Coast Cars

Working Mammals

Drove over to San Diego to see the pens where the United States Navy holds and cares for dolphins. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that the United States Navy gives these dolphins the very best care that they can give them, but it made me think about if the Navy should be using dolphins as working animals. The police use dogs as working animals to help sniff out drugs and bombs. Blind people use dogs to help aid for their loss of vision. Autistic people even use dogs to assist them. Is an animal’s life less valuable than a human life? Should dolphins be used to help find and identify potential threats to naval ships? If they are used in that regard why not use them to attack and do harm to others as well? Where do you draw the line for working animals? Should animals be used as combatants or kept as non-combatants? Koreans use dogs to smell out and track down north Korean defectors. Then again Koreans eat dogs too, so they might not hold animals in the highest regard. Should it be acceptable for the United States to use animals to protect the lives of American combatants and naval ships?

Japanese Pig

I was playing around with the application called Procreate and drew this silly Japanese pig that says, “Boo Boo” instead of “oink oink.” Procreate was a very nice and intuitive application that I would like to play around with more to get the feel for it.

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo Monument

Drove over to Point Loma in San Diego, California today to see the Cabrillo National Monument and take some photos to document my experience. Prior to going here I knew absolutely nothing about Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and his monument. Now I know that Cabrillo, a navigator sailing under the flag of Spain, landed at San Diego. Stepping ashore on Ballast Point, he was the first European to land on the west coast of what is now the United States of America.

United States and Mexico Border Wall

For those who are angry at Donald Trump for suggesting that he will build a wall to separate the United States and Mexico, have no reason to actually be angry at Donald J. Trump. It will be rather difficult for him to build a wall where there is already a wall that separates the United States and Mexico. These photos were taken in California separating San Diego and Tijuana. As you can see Mexico has a lot of houses and businesses near the border, but there was not very much on the United States side.

It is the same thing as if you want to keep trespassers off your land. You put up a fence. Does it completely stop them? No. Does it deter most? Yes. If you don’t think a wall or fence work, try asking Mongolia how well a wall works. Fencing companies aren’t going out of business anytime too soon. Why do you think that is? Because they do work.

Wisdom of an Older Man

An older man approached an attractive younger woman at a shopping mall. “Excuse me; I can’t seem to find my wife. Can you talk to me for a couple of minutes?”

The woman, feeling a bit of compassion for the old fellow, said, “Of course, sir. Do you know where your wife might be?”

“I have no idea, but every time I talk to a woman with breasts like yours, she seems to appear out of nowhere.”

Buttercups & Golf Balls

Towards the end of the golf course, Doug hit his ball into the woods and found it in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch

All of a sudden, POOF! In a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared. She said, “I’m Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for doing what you have done, you won’t have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life. Better still, you won’t have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you’ll never have any butter for anything the rest of your life!” Then POOF!, she was gone!

After Dave recovered from the shock, he hollered for his friend, “Fred, where are you?”

“Fred yells back “I’m over here in the pussy willows.

“Dave shouts back, “DON’T SWING, FRED, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON’T SWING!

Chemistry Final Exam

There were four sophomores taking chemistry and all of them had an ‘A’ so far. These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party. They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to Florida State until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why
they missed it. They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tire. As a result, they missed the final.

The professor agreed they could make up the final the next day.

The guys were excited and relieved. They studied that night for the exam.

The next day the Professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them a test booklet.

They quickly answered the first problem worth 5 points. Cool, they thought! Each one, in a separate room, thought this was going to be easy … then they turned the page. On the second page was written: For 95 points: Which tire?

Monterey’s Flower Burglar

This morning I was driving to the ocean in Monterey, California in hopes to take some photos of some sea otters when I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye.  When I looked over there was a young deer walking along the side of a house.  I stopped my car and watched to see what the deer was going to do.  He decided to snack on some vegetation in a flower bed. I’m sure the owner will appreciate that.

Elephant Seals Near San Simeon

As I drove up California Highway 1, I stopped off at a beach near San Simeon to check out some elephant seals. Being that I’ve never seen elephant seals before, I didn’t know what to expect. First off they are very dramatic. They are always making noise and getting into fights where it looks like they are trying to either bite or get the higher ground on their competition. Second, they are not very graceful on land. They move along and look like a slug. It’s funny because you can see all of their fat jiggle when they move. Third, I guess they get the name “elephant seal” because of the funny shaped nose they have that kind of resembles a trunk. Here are my photos from this interesting experience.

  • In his first candidacy for public office, Donald Trump received the most popular votes for the President of the United States out of a field of experienced and successful politicians. And in most cases, he achieved this with less money than any of his opponents.

Keeping in mind that 90% of start up businesses fail, Trump’s record of enterprise is nothing short of amazing.

Donald Trump has enjoyed success in at least 11 very different enterprises: Professional football, Ice Skating rinks, Fragrance, Ice, Steaks, Wines, Model management, Airline, blenders, Men’s wear, Bicycle races, world class beauty contests, and many others. In some of these, such as model management, his firm has risen to the top of that particular industry.

  • And much, much, more in real estate.
  • Trump Entertainment, casinos and resorts was recently sold to Carl Ichan.
  • Donald Trump’s personal managing of the Wollman Ice Skating Rink project in the early 1980’s is the quintessential case study for MBA students in Wharton, Harvard, and other business schools. His performance there was phenomenal.
  • Donald Trump’s privately held businesses have employed more than 200,000 people.
  • In the casino business in Atlantic City, Trump had to do business with known mobsters – and he stayed “clean” and alive.

The Political Trump:

about 1967 – 1987 – Democrat (he was a supporter of Ronald Reagan)

1987 – 1999 – Republican

1999 – 2001 – Reform Party (he supported Ross Perot)

2001 – 2009 – Democrat

2009 – 2011 – Republican

2011 – 2012 – Independent

2012 – Present – Republican

Donald Trump was openly supportive of Mitt Romney’s candidacy.

Donald Trump does not seem to hold political party organizations in high regard.

For the most part, his political involvement has been for practical reasons.

Donald Trump does not appear to be held to political ideology.

 

 

Some of my take aways:

  • Trump has an extraordinarily energetic central nervous system much like Teddy Roosevelt but more targeted to industry and enterprise.
  • Trump’s presidency will be very energetic, transparent, and communicative.
  • Trump will be a very hard working President.
  • His interaction with his older brother (who everybody loved) tells me that he thinks that everybody is like him – or wants to be – or should be.
  • His relationship with his older brother was a hard lesson in tolerance for him.
  • Trump is the Babe Ruth of career achievements.
  • He is dumb like a fox. When you think he just said something stupid – he didn’t. It’s just that you were not his target audience.
  • Trump knows the people – the folk.
  • His son, Donald Jr. is right. Trump is a “Blue Collar Billionaire”.
  • More than anything, his TV show, The Apprentice, was his passion. He wants all Americans to have confidence (like he does) to venture.
  • Donald Trump is attracted to and marries smart, high achieving women.
  • The highest levels of a Trump Administration is certain to have many women – and they will be bright and assertive.
  • Donald Trump’s children are very important to him. And it shows.

 

 

  1. Yes, we know virtually nothing of our current president with 2 terms in office.

100 Year Old Rolls Royce

It was originally bought for $1,000 in 1912 (almost $93,000 in today’s money) but has now gone under the hammer for $4,705,500, making it the most expensive Rolls Royce ever sold at auction.
05Y-ROLLS ROYCE TAB UP100_year_old_rolls_royce-02
Unique: This 100-year-old Silver Ghost Rolls Royce has sold for a world-record price of $5 million after a furious bidding war at Bonham’s.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-03
Through the roof: The lengthy auction saw two enthusiasts dueling for the pristine car as the bidding went up in increments of 100,000, smashing past the $2 million estimate.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-04
In great nick: The six-cylinder, 7.3-litre car comes with perfect provenance and is still purring smoothly, doing about 15 miles to the gallon. What it lacks in gadgetry, the British-made classic more than compensates for with an extraordinary level of luxury that leaves its modern-day counterparts looking a little unsophisticated. Its gleaming interior fittings are made of silver and ivory, while the door panels are embroidered silk, with brocade tassels attached to silk window shades for privacy.

The passenger footrest hides a full picnic set for four, a China tea service, complete with an alcohol-fuelled burner and a kettle to heat the water, and a set of six decanters – three in sterling silver and three in leather-wrapped glass.

The sale took place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex on Friday. Auctioneers had expected it to sell for around $2 million and were astonished when the bidding between two rival collectors topped $4 million. James Knight, from Bonham’s auctioneers, said: “There were three bidders, then one of them dropped out at $2.3 million and we thought it would end there.”

100_year_old_rolls_royce-05
Traveling in style: The design chosen by its original owner echoed the luxurious ‘ Pullman ‘ Railway carriages pioneered by American George Pullman.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-06100_year_old_rolls_royce-07
Luxurious: The elegant passenger compartment (left) complete with 29 beveled glass windows and (right) the stylish steering wheel.
“But then another bidder entered and the bidders were dueling. It went up in increments of $50,000, and then $100,000, and then back down to $50,000. It went on and on and on and was the longest car sale I have ever witnessed.” It was pure theatre. Everyone was very respectful but when the price reached a milestone, like $3 million, there was an intake of breath. “The bidders were dueling and when the hammer came down there was spontaneous applause.” It was fitting because the car is celebrating her centenary.

The car was commissioned by Rolls Royce connoisseur John M. Stephens, who also bought the first Silver Ghost the luxury car-maker produced in 1906. The body was built by former royal carriage-maker Barker’s of Mayfair , which had previously built coaches for King George III and Queen Victoria.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-08
Standing the test of time: The 7.3-litre, six-cylinder engine is still purring smoothly and is capable of doing around 15 miles to the gallon.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-09
Mark of history: A plaque bearing the vehicle’s chassis number of 1907.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-10
Touch of class: The original owner employed the services of the best coach-making company, Barker and Co. Ltd, to do the bodywork.

100_year_old_rolls_royce-11
Classic designs: One of the car’s brake lights. The Rolls – Royce still had its headlights, carriage lights, rear lights and inflatable tires when it went up for sale. The car even had an early speedometer – an important addition given that a 20 mph speed limit was introduced in 1912.

Unlike most car enthusiasts of his time, Mr. Stephens, from Croydon, South London, asked the makers not to include a glass division window between the driver and the passengers as he wanted to drive it himself rather than rely on a chauffeur.

The car’s distinctive cream and green design echoed the luxury ˜Pullman Railway carriages of the time, and it was known as a Double Pullman Limousine. But it was nicknamed ˜the Corgi Silver Ghost in the 1960s after the toy-maker based its Silver Ghost toy car on this model.

Mr. Stephens’s car is believed to be the only one of its kind to survive with its full interior and bodywork, as many Rolls Royce from the era were converted into ambulances during the First World War.

Republican Truck

I stopped by the Ford Dealership in Temecula yesterday, for a look at the new F-150 aluminum pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new truck “feel” before they become old.

The salesperson, a very nice looking black lady, wearing a “Hillary for President” lapel pin, sat in the passenger seat next to me, describing the truck and all its “wonderful” options. The seats were of particular interest.

She explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.

Looking a bit angry, she asked why I thought it was a Republican truck.

I explained that if it were a Hillary truck, the seats would just blow smoke up your ass year-round.

I had to walk back to the dealership. She obviously has no sense of humor.

Kansas Highway Patrol Officer Traffic Stop Story

Story from a Kansas State Highway Patrol officer:

I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding On U.S. 166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of Sedan, KS.

I asked for her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance.

The lady took out the required information and handed it to me.

In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and ask if she had a weapon in her possession at this time.

She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box.

Something—body language, or the way she said it—made me want to ask if she had any other firearms.

She did admit to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console..

Now I had to ask one more time if that was all.

She responded once again that she did have just one more, a .38 special in her purse.

I then asked her what was she so afraid of.

She looked me right in the eye and said, “Not a f*****g thing!”

Old West gunfighter Bat Masterson. was a colorful figure – an army scout, gambler, buffalo hunter, frontier lawman in Dodge City, and eventually a US Marshall. He was friends with Wyatt Erp, and had visited Wyatt in Tombstone, Arizona shortly before the showdown at the OK Coral. Later in life, after the West had been tamed, he settled in New York City, and worked as a sports editor for the New York Morning Telegraph.

Wyoming, circa 1900, Overland by Stagecoach….Crossing the country by stagecoach was adventurous even by nineteenth-century standards. Nine people could squeeze inside a stagecoach; additional passengers sometimes traveled on the roof. Passengers remained sandwiched together for about 22 days, with only brief stops for meals and changes of stock or equipment.

San Diego Padres Face-off Against the Saint Louis Cardinals

Today the San Diego Padres are facing off in game one of a three game series with the Saint Louis Cardinals Major League Baseball game. I went down to Petco Park to partake in the festivities. Here are some of the photos from my experience. Spoiler alert: The Padres beat the Cardinals 4-1 tonight. It was an entertaining game to watch in quite the venue.

Leninade – Get Hammered and Sickled in California

What the heck is happening in the super markets in California? I was in the super market and I came across a beverage called “Leninade” and their slogan is “Get hammered and sickled.” How the heck did something like this make its way into super markets in the United States? What kind of self-loathing, democratic, pigs would think it’s a good idea to sell this communist crap here? It just sickens me. What will I see next a nice “KGB” hand held radio?

Funny Sign at the Sea Life Aquarium

thekumachan_Sea_Life_Aquarium_funny_sign-1

I was at the Sea Life Aquarium and I saw this sign. The way the sign shows a finger pointing at a fish with a line through it and then the outside fish has a sad face, it looks like the sign is saying, “Don’t point at the fish. It hurts their self esteem.” Maybe it’s saying, “Don’t point finger guns at the fish.” Finger guns must make fish sad. I find that to be funny.
