This is actually a great link not just to vote for your favorite blogs, but also to check out some really good blogs. You might actually find some that you read on a regular basis. I did, Post Secret, Wonkette, Waiter Rant, etc.
Most other countries where bloging seems to be taken seriuosly, have these type of awards. They actually have "conferences" on bloging or bloger "get togethers".
Enjoy the list.

I owe you this story from last year.
This happened on our way back home from San Francisco after Thanksgiving.
Melissa , Anthony and I left Yosemite park that morning after breakfast. We drove up and over the pass towards Bishop.
Bishop is this small town where you can stay if you cannot afford the rooms at Mammoth. From there we were supposed to go down towards Palmdale and eventually into Barstow on our way home.
However, I decided that it was still early and we could take the "long" road through Death Valley, which we had done before.(Here's the Map) So we veered off East into the dessert. Not far from where we turned, we came into another road. The road on the left would take us into Beatty, NV. The one on the right said, "Death Valley". That should have been a "sign" (It was a sign and it also said- Unpaved Road)As far as I could see, the road had plenty of pavement on it. SO we decided to take that road. I know what you're thinking. "BAD MOVE"
So it was.

The road was paved for a good 15 to 20 miles into the Hills as we were cruising at a decent speed-20-30 mph.
All of a sudden as we were climbing, the road ended. The paved road that is,
now it was just a dirt road in the dessert. We stayed on this road for a good half hour until we happened to hit another stretch of paved road.
I thought our luck was changing when we hit another sign that said. North Entrance to Death Valley National Park and another that pointed south and said. "Sand Dunes" Not wanting to go to the Sand Dunes, even though Melissa suggested we go that way, I proceeded to go the opposite way which was paved but just for another couple of miles.
That was the last stretch of pavement I saw for a few hours.
The fact that we did not see other cars or people, or even buzzards in the sky, should have told me I was heading into the wrong way.
We kept climbing up and over hills. At times there was only space for one vehicle, luckily there were no large vehicles in sight. Eventually we spotted two trucks. One with a camper on it and another was one of those small conversion van type.
It helps when you get to the top of a hill or mountain, because it shows you very clearly that you are indeed lost, when all you see is more rocks, gravel and not a paved road in sight, but rather more of the same.
The picture shows a road traveling from left to right (N to S) The road we were on, eventually took us into that road. Again, more unpaved road. At this point, Anthony had fallen asleep and Melissa and I kept on chugging along "enjoying" the scenery while listening to The Beatles.
An hour later we were still on that road and still no side of anything. Bad thoughts began to creep into our minds.
My car is well kept, I had just gotten new tires the week before, so there was no danger of anything, like a busted tire. I also always have a spare in the trunk an I am able to change them. The bad thought was about something wrong happening to the engine or a broken axle, since the road was so rough.

At some other point we were speculating about murderers or such here in the middle of nowhere and without cell phone reception or anything like that.
Right after the conversation about "the murderer", as we were coming up over a small hill and on our way down, what do we see if not "something" that looks like a person ahead in the distance coming up in our direction.
My heart jumped when the adrenaline began to pump.
In the middle of nowhere and here was this person headed towards us. My first thought was, "I can run him over" or something like that. As we got closer to each other, I noticed that it was a female jogger.
This was perhaps a sign that civilization was near, or the sign of a crazy woman.
not ten minutes passed when we got to the end of that road. Finally a paved road and one that would get us home.
Not before passing by places like this.

Since I am an avid reader, I decided to take this quiz. Now, I have never heard ofthis book but I might pick it up just to see.....
I wonder who comes up with all these little quizes that tell you what kind of muffin, smurf, tree, animal or rock you are, simply by answering a few silly questions?

You're A Theory of Justice!

by John Rawls

In the beginning, you lived in a town. The town had many problems!
Rather than moving, you decided to come up with the idea for the best town ever. Going
all the way back to the original position, you created the idea for the best town ever!
Lo and behold, the best town ever looked almost identical to the town you lived in. You
decided to stay in the town. Now you resent people mistaking your refined thought
experiments for "the wall of stupidity" in high school debate

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.


The snow never materialized but it was very cold for a good two weeks straight. Winter weather is coming back to normal here in Vegas.
More news.
My mom went back to Mexico last week. It was good having her visit since this was the longest she's been out of Mexico. At least she's back to her own home and her own things. Unfortunately, my little brother, who lives with her, made a mess of things while she was here. I'm sure she'll take care of him.
Everyone knows that no matter where you go or how comfortable and pampered you are, you can't wait to get home to your own things. I noticed she was getting anxious to leave. She was at my brother's throughout her stay and she was getting annoyed at some of the happenings there (Mother in Law-Daughter in Law issues). Then again, if she had stayed with me, she would have found something to have an opinion about.
She says she'll come back. Probably to visit for a week or two, rather than the six months that she was here. I'll be looking forward to her coming back maybe this time she'll stay with us.
Anthony will be turning 8 Next week.
Olivia and Melissa are going to see High School Musical.
and me?.
Work, work and work.

So everyone in town is looking forward to snow in the valley.
Weather warnings were issued from 2:00PM through 10:00PM tonight because of snow. Of course its a lot colder than usual, probably the coldest all year. However, I don't think that snow is going to materialize. Maybe a little bit in the surrounding high areas. (Forecasters spoke of 2-3 inches in the valley-That means; Snow on The Strip.) If it does, the kids will be happy and I will be posting pictures...

This was my yard back in 2003 when we got a good snow storm overnight...
'Till then.

So, Bush is going to announce that he needs 20,000 more troops to go to Iraq and finally "suppress" the insurgency and lend support to the Iraqi government in their efforts to put down the "insurgency."
He is also going to ask for more funds to spend on infrastructure to create more jobs for Iraqis, thus reducing the number or those joining the insurgents.

Isn't this what should have happened the moment we went into Iraq?.
Why 3 years later with "more of the same" attitudes. "throw more soldiers and money into the problem and that should take care of it".
It's too bad that The president still does not have a realistic plan for Iraq. I don't think anybody has a real idea as to what to do with the War there. I am aware that we cannot just pull all our troops out of there all at once, but to continue on the same path is to continue with the same problems.
Why are we not pursuing or pressuring other Mid-East neighboring countries to help find a solution?
Inevitably I believe, that is what is going to happen. It is a regional problem that involves all surrounding countries. The Saudis have already experienced terrorist attacks, Lebanon is a shaky "democracy", Egypt has also had acts of terrorism on its soil. So if they want to stop them from happening as much as we in the U.S. do, then they need to be involved in the solution to bring an end to the conflict, not just in Iraq, but all throughout the region.

My own humble opinion.

It's two in the morning and bad dreams have startled me out of bed. Outside the wind howls as it tries to rip the tiles of the roof. At least it sounds that way. A light rain makes everything glitter as if all the stars had fallen from the sky.
It's two in the morning and everyone sleeps peacefully in spite of the angry wind.
Bad dreams have woken me up and tossed me into the night. There is no one outside but shadows and flickering lights.
It's later in the morning and time to wake up.

Already January 2.
College Football is over, aside from the National Championship game coming up, Christmas is over, Garbage truck picked up all the empty boxes and torn up wrapping paper. Recycling bins are full of empty bottles from the New Year's bash. All gifts put away and things seem to be back to normal.
People have gone home, people are returning.
Parking lots at the airport are clearing and now the lots will sit empty for another whole year.
Now what!
A new Year, a blank slate, a new sheet of paper.
We get older, kids get and grow much faster and older.
Do you have a list?
