Worry-Free Society 1

As some of you already know I’ve been visiting China for the last week. I spent 2 nights in Hong Kong and I’ve been in the Southern island of Hainan for the last 4 days, and we’re flying way up to Beijing in a few hours. Since arriving here, I’ve been making observations about the ...

Obama: The new JFK? 3

While I sit here waiting for Hurricane Noel to knock out my power, I’ve spent the last 3 or 4 hours reading about JFK, among other random topics. In his speeches, JFK brought energy and a certain hope to the people of America in the 60′s. He had dreams, he had hope, and he had ...

FOX News Attacks Iran 2

MoveOn.Org posted a video on YouTube that compares FOX News’ campaign against Iraq before the invasion in 2003 to the current campaign against Iran in 2007. It’s a little too flattering to give FOX News full credit for the war in Iraq. FOX News is quite simply a propaganda medium for the GOP. Although I’m ...

Taking Mojo for long walks gives me a chance to think about anything and almost everything. I think that’s why I enjoy walking so much; I don’t get distracted from my thoughts, such as I would if I were say driving or working or watching TV. I’ve also been using my new phone as a ...

Facebook Sucks 5

Facebook used to be a pretty cool, simple, feature-rich social utility website. Sort of like a friend who always keeps you informed about events and lets you know when a mutual friend’s birthday is coming up. It has now become an annoying, nagging, chatty school girl. Here are 18 reasons why Facebook is annoying as ...

2007 Summer Video 2

Last night Han left to visit her family in China on a 19-hour flight to Hong Kong. I will miss her dearly but I will be flying to China in November for a three-week vacation to visit. I promised her there would be an e-mail waiting for her when she gets to the hotel in ...

Blackwater has been generally secretive and operates with impunity from being tried under Iraqi law, they are immune from receiving a Court Martial and they are immune from the Military ...

Winter in Halifax 3

I arrived in Halifax (with Mojo) early afternoon on Sunday and promptly took her for a 2 hour run/walk at Pleasant Point Park and around downtown Halifax. My sleep got all messed up because I wasn’t able to sleep for more than a few hours before my flight Sunday morning, so I ended up going ...
