Criminal or Victim?

Would you rather be the criminal or the victim? It depends entirely on your world view. If you live this life, then become compost, you'd likely choose to be the criminal. If there is a higher judge...

Katherine Harris

I think the greatest crime of the movie "Recount" is the mockery they've made of Katherine Harris... They make her look like a total ninecomepoop! Most of the movie is almost too boring to bare, but then they throw in a mishmash of female steriotypes for HK, and I'm about ready to gag. Do liberals actually believe this shit? Hopefully Americans will be smarter than this and actually see this for what it is -> SORE LOSERS with spitballs!

Would you believe I was called again for Jury Duty? I wasn't called for 15 years and now I've been called twice in 2008!!

2 Favorite Japan pics

I liked this one because it was just so funny to see 4 teenage girls sitting together text messaging rather than talking. They were totally enthralled with their phones...
This is one of those rare images which is impossible to take a bad a picture of... like Lake Louise in Canada.

Just a few pictures from our trip to Vietnam this month.

Rex Hotel, roof top bar

The power lines in Saigon are all above ground. We saw one guy working on them with his bare hands!!! Yikes!

I thought this photo was pretty funny because of the giant picture of "Uncle Ho"... as far as I could tell, nobody was really happy with the whole communist thing. They pretty much live in grinding poverty, which is a shame because they are very industrious people. I guess their leaders live well though.

We tried all kinds of interesting fruit. Fruit which I had no idea even existed!

The old US Embassy has been turned into a war museum - dedicated to the atrocities committed by the Americans, Japanese and French... Not a word about those committed by the communists. Hmmm... We skipped that particular site. There was one retard Anglo roaming around Saigon with a "Ho Chi Minh" T-shirt on. Moron.

I just thought this picture was interesting because they do almost everything by hand, including raking and trimming hedges, etc... They do have the motorized, push lawn mowers:>D

There were lots of motor scooters! I thought this photo was cute. The baby was sound asleep. I'm not sure how safe it is to ride without a helmut though.....

40 Tips for Better Life - 2008

My sister sent this in the email, and I thought it was worth sharing. Enjoy!

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.

3. Buy a DVR and tape your late night shows and get more sleep.

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today.'

5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.

6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2007.

7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.

14. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the energy vampires away.

18. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

23. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'

26. Forgive everyone for everything.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. Time heals almost everything.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often. (Or email them to death!!!) Hey I'm thinking of ya!

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly don't want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.
