Go look at the moon

It is beautiful!

Piedmont park

Just enjoying my day off and stopped by the park for a short walk.
It's a great park. Have a great day.

Munich Day Two

Here are the photos from Oktoberfest. It was a total blast, I really would like to go back and do it again, and again, and again, and...well you get the idea. Only next time with table reservations.

We had lots of fun eating and drinking, as you can see so did most people. I love the feel of a big crowd and everyone having fun and the food was great as well.

This was the Spatenbrau horse team. All the big tents (each tent sponsored by different breweries) had their own horse team that went around the grounds during the day. You could get right up next to the team and meet the people who care for the horses. There are some photos of other horse teams in the sideshow above.

Now of course after you have spent the time in the tents drinking and eating yourself to your happy place then you step outside to the midway and rides some rides...well you might but I did not think my stomach could handle it so I took a pass on the rides. You can tell I was feeling no pain in the video above with my sequel at the end of the video. I had no pain but enough sense not to ride the rides!

This is just a small taste of what the inside of the tents feel like at night. It was exponentially crazier than I could capture for you in a video but you get the idea. Keep in mind that there were probably 10 tents this size on the Oktoberfest grounds (all with bands and plenty of drunks) with loads of smaller places. The night we went the tents were so packed all we could do was find a seat outside. It was a great time and if you get the chance to go you should!

Just wondering if you have made and New Years resolutions. I have made two: 1. Complete at least one Crossword Puzzle each day & 2. Complete at least one Sudoku each day. Post your resolutions if you would like. Maybe I can play this Crossword building sometime??? Peace


Well I totally forgot to post the photos from Munich, sorry! Without further ado...

In the photos you will see stuff from the Munich Free Tour that we took--which includes the Marian Column, the Cathedral. The self tour we took of the Englischer Garten after we had been to the Alte Pinakothek. You will also see the piece of the Berlin Wall that I was finally able to touch--since all the pieces in Berlin itself were untouchable. Also in there you will see a few other photos I took in Munich. Tomorrow I will put up the photos from Oktoberfest and the videos I took as well. Peace


Remember when I was in Japan and told you about the high cost of watermelons? Now I know why, they are really Godzilla Eggs!

Did you ever have to watch this?

This is a training video from the 80's. Any of you work for Wendy's? I think my brothers Tony and Andy did. This is exactly how I would like all learning to take place...through rap!

What the?

I have no idea. Enjoy


It is cold...I wish! This guy found a place to take a dip in the icy waters, you can see more photos of his merry group here. I want to try taking a dip in frozen lake or river sometime, wanna go with?

Animal love

I tell you this rat loves it some cat. Enjoy the interspecies adoration.

Can your fingers do this?

Just watch this, I can't believe some of the stuff people can do with their is at times amazing. Also from the site I found this on, YouKu Buzz (a site for commentary in English about the Chinese video sharing site YouKu), and they say that the percentages are for the number of people who cannot do what is about to be demonstrated. Enjoy

A new hobby?

I think this should be my new hobby. I would totally love to try this kind of flying fun. I think this year I need to do a sky-dive and then graduate to it looks like fun. You can watch this below or go here to see it full screen in your browser. Sweet

This could have been my room, kinda.

This poor guy really gets it from his cat. Ooti, my youngest, gets under the sheets and sleeps all night. Lilly is kinda like this cat, always prowling around and then needing attention. This poor guy needs to get his cat some kitty prozac or something. Enjoy!
