Hola from Costa RIca

Just wanted to drop a quick note from our hotel in Costa Rica. Yesterday we went to the LaPaz waterfalls and saw some animals: monkeys, butterflys and assorted hummingbirds. I am trying to upload some pics, but it is taking a bit because although they have "wireless" the wireless router is connected to a pc with a 56 kbps modem.
I will write more when we arrive in Jaco later today.

Bruce Lee

I saw this clip and I thought it was pretty neat. I am not sure if it is a redub, but if it is real, wow! Watch Bruce Lee play Ping Pong with a nunchucks.
Seeing as there is a guy in England that plays darts with 16 penny nails, I guess this is not too far fetched.

Whatever else he was, Bruce Lee embodied dedication.
What have you dedicated your life to?

Doing the right thing.

Even if it means losing, doing the right thing is ALWAYS the correct thing to do:

I hate the Cowboys

America's Team. Blech...Blah Blah Give me Da Bears.
That being said, This story is out of the Dallas News. It tells a story of Tony Romo. The guy that was lambasted by the media. This is the guy that has been given a slap in the face time and again by modern media. I won't pretend that this has anything to do with his prowess as a football player, but as a person and good human being, I would be hard pressed to say anything bad about him.
We need more people in the world like Tony Romo.
I still hate the Cowboys, but kudos, props and bravo to Tony Romo.
Here's the story **CLICK HERE FOR THE ORIGINAL**

A homeless man who goes by Doc was cashing in change at a Cinemark theater in Dallas when a guy walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie. Doc, who planned to spend his day passing out flyers for a few bucks, accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman.

"Was that Tony Romo?" Doc asked the kid behind the counter.

It sure was. Doc hustled across the street to the consignment store that paid him to occasionally pass out flyers and requested the day off. By the time he got back to the theater, "Role Model" had already started.

Romo, who confirmed the story but didn't want to elaborate, waved Doc over to sit by him and his buddy. Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn't showered in a few days.

"Don't worry about that," Romo said. "I'm used to locker rooms."

And so the $67 million quarterback and a man who doesn't have $6.70 to his name sat next to each other and shared laughs for 90 minutes or so.

For Romo, who made news by changing a couple's tire on the side of the road on the way home the night of the season opener, it was just another kind gesture to a random stranger. It meant the world to Doc.

"For me, it was a blessing," Doc said. "It came at just the right time. It gave me some encouragement and faith in mankind. I just wanted to say thank you."

Why I Dislike Uneducated Democrats

This is one of the reasons that I avoid debating politics with Democrats (for the most part). It comes from the crying of fouls over nothing, and side stepping almost every direct question that they are asked.
Unfortunatley, the same squeaking of change that got the wheel greased this past November 4th sounds suprisingly like a crabby child.
A lot of the times, the person that is yelling the loundest is usually the one that needs to check their facts.
below is an excerpt from the Huffington Post:

The small smear of red on the otherwise blue electoral map looks more like a minor bloodstain on a dirty Band-Aid than anything resembling a national political party. Who voted for McCain/Palin in bigger numbers than they even voted for Bush/Cheney? Only one shrinking group: uneducated white folks in the deep south and a few folks in Appalachia. Take away the white no-college-backwoods-and/or-southern McCain/Palin vote and the Republicans would have been approaching single digit electoral college oblivion.

Sarah Palin will never hold national office nor will any Republican at the presidential level for a long time to come. Why? Because America has uneducated jerks in it but is not a nation of uneducated jerks. The Republicans are done, hoisted on the petard of their own "southern strategy."

The Republican Party is only a step away from becoming the fringe of the fringe, identified more with cross-burning weirdoes wearing hoods, folks like the Alaska secessionist party, all those gun owners stocking up on assault weapons before the "Socialist/United Nations/Obama/Muslim" conspiracy comes to fruition, than with anything remotely like a serious national political force.
