Mini Bike and No Pants

No pants and a mini chopper. I wonder what her story is?

Sarah Palin Still Hot

I don't care what anyone says. I still think Sarah Palin is hot.

Sitting In Red

I'm 15 and it's 1974. I sit in my red room with the headphones on listening to the upper end of FM around 107.9. That's where the progressive radion stations are. You remember those stations; the ones that play Yes, Pink Floyd, Argent, ELP, Eno and others. My bedroom was in red. Red carpet, red curtains, red bedspread, red bean bag chair and a hanging red light. Headphones are state of the art Sony and the stereo is cranking. Lost in the sounds of Pink Floyd.

Remembering A Crazy Diamond

One day he took a walk across the bridge and jumped. We saw him the day before and then he was gone. ............ Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Remember when you were young,
You shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the crossfire
Of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze
Come on, you target
For faraway laughter
Come on you stranger
You legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon
You cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night
And exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well, you wore out your welcome
With random precision
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on, you raver,
You seer of visions,
Come on, you painter,
You piper, you prisoner, and shine!
Nobody knows where you are,
How near or how far
Shine on you crazy diamond
Pile on many more layers
And I'll be joining you there
Shine on you crazy diamond
And we'll bask in the shadow
Of yesterday's triumph,
Sail on the steel breeze
Come on, you boy child,
You winner and loser,
Come on, you miner
For truth and delusion, and shine!

Exotic Airlines and Exotic Destinations

I have been very fortunate to travel around the world quite a few times. At 49 years old, I am still like a little kid when I know I am going to fly. As an avid airline traveler I have come to appreciate certain airlines for certain destinations as not just a flight to a destination but an experience to be thoroughly savored and enjoyed. Here is my list of airline and destination matchups, most of which I have experienced.

  • Cathay Pacific into Hong Kong
  • TWA into Milan
  • Varig into Rio de Janerio
  • British Airways into London
  • Swiss Air into Geneva
  • Qantas into Perth
  • Lufthansa into Munich
  • Singapore Airlines into Changi
  • Pan Am into Buenes Aires
If you have ever flown on any of these combinations you know what I mean. Keep the flip flops and sweat suits to Southwest Airlines. For class travel go with one of these listed airlines.
