Italia

June 30, 2006 at 5:06 pm (Uncategorized)

  As some of you may know I was on vacation for a few weeks, I was in Italia for seventeen days.

  We visited the following places, Rome, went down to Molise(Mirabello Sannitico), Vico Equense(near Sorrento), Pompei, Ischia Island, Nettuno, and back to the Rome area for a few more days.

  We experienced all that is Italy. The history, the grandiose sites, the nature, the folly, the driving, and the great food. Everything was molto bene(very good).

   I will write in upcoming blogs on my various experiences, stay tuned.

  For the time being, I have posted some photos. OK quite a few photos(so easy, point and shoot with a digital camera). For those that are interested follow the links Italia 1 and Italia 2. Ciao.

Instant Stardom

June 9, 2006 at 9:51 am (Uncategorized)

  Anybody can become a star these days on the internet. It is just insane what kind of stuff is out there.

   All you need is a cheap webcam, and you too can make a video and be a star on the worldwide web. It is unreal and mindboggling the stuff that is out there. One of the most popular sites is called youtube.com and their motto is broadcast yourself.

   Many people decide to do it and what they put out there is really bad music videos(how many  "numa numa" videos do we need),dancing videos, and  tons of strange stuff that they are doing.

     If you check youtube.com this morning, there is guy doing a monkey chow diet, he is on day 5. Why the hell would you eat monkey food and keep a video diary on the internet. I guess the answer is because you can , and if you can broadcast to the world, why not put it on the web.

 

For an example of what I am talking about see below.

Death to Terror

June 9, 2006 at 8:04 am (Uncategorized)

   Yesterday the American army killed a terrorist in Iraq, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. Al- Zarqawi was probably linked to Al-Qaeda and probably close to Bin Laden. Will his death bring an end to the  terror and the daily bombings in Iraq, I think not.

   I believe that the odds are pretty high that he set up a replacement and the terror/insurgency will continue without him. CNN is reporting this morning, that 37 people died today in further attacks since Al-Zarqawi was eliminated.

   Stopping Al-Zarqawi was a good thing since he orchestrated numerous attacks, and he did not care if the people dying were muslims or non-muslims. What effect his death will have on the violence in Iraq, time will tell as they say.

Interesting article on who might take his place—>>>

  Keeping with my global warming theme of the last post, I came across a few films on the subject in the past few days. See the links to the trailers below.

   One of the films is the Al Gore movie, An Inconvenient Truth and it is a good movie that makes us reflect on global warming. The other film is called , Who Killed the Electric Car, I got this link from my cousin, Domenico.

Check out the trailers and the movies if you have a chance.

Thunderstruck

   So, it has been a freaky weather week to say the least. We had some nasty thunder and lightning shows in the middle of the week and the middle of the night at times. It is barely June, this worries me a little bit.

     I have stated before on this blog, and will do so again, there is something a little messed up with our weather.  There is definitely something wrong with our climate, I am convinced of that. The scientists are saying it, but no one in the government is listening. Mr Harper is definitely not hearing anything.

   Mr Harper has no interest in doing anything about Kyoto. He will not support the Kyoto accord or put what it implies into action.  I heard a news report that thirty percent of the greenhouse gas emissions in Canada are produced by Alberta, and that this number will rise, as they start to increase production on getting oil out of the tar sands. This is all related to Harper, because all his buddies that helped him get elected in Alberta, would have to spend money to reduce these gases and they would not be happy with him at all.

  We should all them Mr Harper to do something about Kyoto, instead of adding SUVs on his security detail. Everyone should take a minute and send him an e-mail, telling him to respect Kyoto.
