Dog Whisperer

I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes! It reminded me of my 3rd child. My husband would hum a tune and he would always go to sleep. My youngest would always pretend to sleep when I say goodnight, but it doesn't last.

The Journeyman

I have a thing where I would go to and find an actor that I like from a movie or show that I saw. Kevin McKidd. I first saw him on MADE OF HONOR with Patrick Dempsey. He looks great in kilt. I meant to look him up, but I forgot because my mother and I ended up watching PRIDE AND PREJUDICE again. Colin Firth in that movie is just so fascinating.

On Thursday night, while watching GREYS ANATOMY premiere, I saw him again paired up with Christina Yang. Love him! He's compelling. At imdb I found that he's on this short-lived series called THE JOURNEYMAN. He's a time-traveler. It's a different kind of time traveling show. I wish it would go up again, because it's great.

I am so grateful that imdb has all 13 episodes. I'm watching the second one right now. In QUATUUM LEAP, there's only one body. On this show, he would sometimes run into himself. It's great. You should see it.


The Cheapest Ever

It's been a while since I saw gas prices closer to 3 USD. I was hoping it would stay this way for a while, but it looks like it went back up again. I've always wonder why there are three octane rating for gasoline. Why not sell only two? I am sure I can probably find out if I want to, but I haven't had the chance. I guess it isn't very high on my list of things to find out. Do you happen to know what it means?

Awesome Realtor Directory

My friend Anne moved to Albuquerque. Buying a house was a tad stressful for her because she does not know where to know. Albuquerque Realtors is a directory of professional, reliable and proven realtors. To make it to this directory, a realtor must have completed 10 transactions in the past year. Shopping for a home is hard enough. It's better to do with with someone who can really help. It's what realtors are for. They work for you. Clicksmart has this great directory. Take advantage of it. There are great places to live and the best way to find them is by using reputable Realtors in Albuquerque. It will take a seasoned realtor to help you find it, so it might as well be the best.

Photo Hunt: View

This is a view from the top of Coit Tower in San Francisco. It takes many minutes to make it up there. It's a tight space, and not many elbow room available. I know I should say "not a lot of elbow room", but if you're there, I think you'll see the elbow room is very much quantifiable. You go in circles, and then you have to line up again to go out. That also takes many more minutes before you make it to the sardine-packed elevator.

Sturdy Clothes and Free Stuff

I associate 5.11 Tactical clothing lines with something sturdy and indestructible. It's perfect clothing for growing, active, rambunctious boys like mine. Now is a good time to go shopping because if you buy some boots, you get free socks. I'm such a sucker for free stuff. You can get tactical ops flashlight with purchase of 100 or more. That's a few pairs of pants. If you don't have any children, but you have a husband who likes to go hunting, then this is the place for you. They have all kinds of outdoor gears with great prices. Right now, you can also get free shipping with a 50 USD order. If that's not enough to get you there, they have over 20,000 pairs of pants in stock! Come and shop now.

Do You See?

I like mystery shots. But these aren't that mysterious once you know what you're looking for.
I saw this picture and I have no idea what they are about.
Then I knew. Sometimes, happiness is just taking pleasures in the simplest things we saw. If you can master that, then you are much the better for it.

What Were They Thinking?

Oh, happy, happy, joy, joy. There's a trail for you!

And now, you're all ready to take your horse on a trail ride.

Sure, you live in a city, but that's alright. They have special provisions for this kind of thing.

And then you see a sign.
And maybe, there's a trail in there somewhere. I mean, there's that sign.

And you look closer, the sign gets bigger. Yes! It's a trail just for you.

Says so right there in clear big sign. Just you and your horse.

But, buuuutttt....where do you go?

The sign said so!

Make It a Showcase

I don't know about you, but I can only look at a bathroom, or any room so much without changing anything, especially my bathroom. Here's where bathroom vanity come in. Are you tired of those fixed old vanities? I am. I have a house built in the late 70s. We're constantly upgrading. I'm glad to have a house, but having this 56" Glass Top Double Sink Vanity bathroom vanities will be even better. I like the bowl design. My husband likes it too. It matches the shape of our plates. Why shouldn't our plates match the bathroom sink?

The greatest thing about browsing through all these discount bathroom vanities is his permission to spend the money. Now, I just have to .decide whether I want to redo my bathroom sinks or my kids. I really can get one! How cool is this?

Double Vanity is ideal for master bathrooms. It wouldn't fit in my half-bath down the hallway. However, they have beautiful collection of single vanity. I think this single vanity below is the perfect compliment to the one I have picked for my masters bath. I like how it is neat and beautiful. If I put in my order before December 2008, I'll get free shipping on any orders. I am so excited about this.

J is for Jovy. A good friend of mine. Now, you have to admit, that's pretty creative!

Camera Critters

The sea lions at Pier 39 in San Francisco. They're really cute to watch.

Photo Hunt: Road

The fun streets of San Francisco. I think I like that city for walking, but not for driving. There's nowhere to park that doesn't cost serious money.

World of Phobias

A long time ago, my heart would race, my palms grow sweaty when I see mushroom. Mycophobia, fear of mushroom. I don't know anything about the term, all I know is I have this strong urge to pee when I see one.

At one point, I thought it's because mushroom would always grow where the dog pees. But only when it is followed by rain. I am now old with my degree in science, and it seems like my brain had discounted all I'd learn about fungi and it's behavior. I am sure I had spent two semesters talking about it...but it's all fuzzy now.

I don't have the urge to pee when I see mushrooms now. I ate them. Sometimes, I would get nightmares about mushroom so big, it ate me. It's always made me wonder why something as repugnant as mushroom gets eaten regularly. Humans are really just animals, after all.

Mired in Debt? Consolidate

I don't think anyone set out to be neck-deep in debt. In fact, I can almost be sure that most people would like to be independently wealthy. I've been in worse debt situations before, but nothing like my college best friend. She worked for a department store that has thousands of wonderful and beautiful products. So, instead of taking home a pay, she ends up accumulating debt as she work because she can't resist buying.

She has one of the prettiest apartments I saw. It's fully furnished, and beautifully kept. The only problem was, her credit card debt kept mounting. Of course, she didn't tell me when we first met, but after a year of being together, she finally confided about her uncontrollable urge to buy. She has drawers and drawers filled with make-up and their corresponding gift make-ups and bag it came in. It was the most peculiar thing I saw.

At one point, her mother offered to clear her 15K debt but she is not getting a sports car for graduation. I was thinking that maybe her main option might be to consolidate debt. This will make remembering payment due dates easier. Instead of sending out 5 different credit card bills, there's only one. It's a smart way to manage debt when you're mired in it. Of course, it's always better to manage our finances smartly. But when disaster happens, debt consolidation is another option.

Wordless Wednesday

Please put in your specific Wordless post so I can visit. :)

Ruby Tuesday: Flower

This are flowers taken in San Francisco. I don't know the names. It's beautiful though. I don't know if this flower will live in the Lone Star state. It just seems like a refrigerated kind of flower.

Complain Less*

If you think you are unhappy, look at them

If you think your salary is low, how about her?

If you think you don't have many friends...

When you feel like giving up, think of this man

If you think you suffer in life, do you suffer as much as he does?

If you complain about your transport system, how about them?

If your society is unfair to you, how about her?
