A Big Blue Christmas

For Christmas Lizzie and I got a few New York Giants stuff. Maybe next year we'll just do a full themed Christmas.

Christmas Gift

My wife and I just opened a Christmas gift we bought for ourselves. It was supposed to come gift-wrapped so we could put it under the tree... I guess the cat's out of the bag...

Thanks Apple for ruining Christmas..!

Tis' the Season

So every year Starbucks comes out with a Christmas cookie, and I have to eat at least one. This year they made a Christmas bear and it was delicious!

When I sent this picture to my wife she didn't even know it was a cookie. She thought it was an ad or display.

Keep it up Starbucks and I will continue my end of the bargain and eat only one Christmas cookie.

Political Lions Den

I'm sure I speak for most people when I say that I will be happy when I wake up tomorrow and know that I will not be bombarded with political ads on TV and phone calls on my cell asking me to vote, or reminding me to vote. I think I may never answer my phone to an unknown caller again..

Maybe my conversations with people will get a little better too. These past few weeks have been like living in a political lions den, it has been hard not to have a politically flavored conversation with my friends and even colleagues. Many of us like me have forgotten the polite etiquette of not to bringing up politics in conversations, but how can you not when you are surrounded by television, radio, and billboard ads all telling you otherwise.

Tomorrow will bring back a simpler time for most of us. A time when we will once again complain about our political leaders saying that there is nothing we can do to change it, almost condoning it as part of the their job to do a bad job. I mean what can you expect they are government employees aren't they?... I guess They're not all bad though since my wife is a government employee also.

Neighborhood Car Accident

At 2:18 p.m. this afternoon three vehicles were involved in an accident a few houses down from my home. By the time I came to the scene many of my neighbors had already mobilized and helped those involved out of their vehicles and called for emergency personal. Two people were taken to local area hospitals but only had minor injuries.

One neighbor went above and beyond by helped comfort a grandfather and grandson whose truck was immobilized, her name is June, a retired employee of UMC. She provided them chairs to rest and water during the whole ordeal. Her acts of kindness really make me glad to be a member of this community, knowing that so many people like her are willing help when there is need.

Special thanks also to the Fresno Fire Department who were the first on the the scene.

Bellow are a few of the pictures that I snapped while on the scene.

Me Eating A Chicken Head

Things at Sam and Susie Lee's wedding reception in Monterey Park last night got very lively when I was asked to eat a chicken head. Well not the whole head, but the brains. Now I have the mental capacity of a grown man and a bird. Awesome!

Who know chicken brains tasted oh so good...
