Check out this cool surf video! It is getting to be that time of year when the board shorts come out and the suntan lotion too!
It’s time for some summer fun at the beach… After watching this video you will defiantly be in the mood to get in the water.

So grab your girl and your boards and have a great time and if there is no surf you can always stop off at the surf shop for some of the new fashions they have come out with for this summer.

I have my new long board and I am off to the beach (8


My Favorite Holiday Music

I love Christmas holidays and I especially love the music that you hear a lot more of during the season.  (Yes, I really am a music-lover!)  While many songs are religion-based, there are also many that are non-denominational cheerful carols you can sing to bring uplifting spirits to everyone around you.  Who doesn’t get their winter blues chased away after listening to timeless classics like “Jingle Bells” or “Frosty the Snowman?” What about the humorous classics “I’m Getting Nuttin’ For Christmas?” and “All I Want For Christmas Are My Two Front Teeth”?

When you take a moment to really try and take away the stress of modern day-to-day living, take away the cynicism of non-conformists, and take away the negativity of those who simply can’t stand to see others in celebration around them, you can feel the true meaning of “holiday spirit”. Remember – that’s the lesson that the Grinch learned after he tried to steal Christmas away from everyone in Whoville?

How The Grinch Stole Christmas

There’s so much variety in holiday music today that a music lover like me can have a favorite in almost every genre. When it comes to children’s holiday music, I really love the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas(TM). Perhaps those of you who enjoyed the cartoons of the 70s can remember the scene where Schroeder plays the piano and everyone is dancing happily around him. That was just so fun to watch – even as I grew up!

When it comes to religious holiday music, I really love “What Child Is This?” because it’s so endearing and mellowing. I love it sung acapella and I love it even when it’s played instrumentally. I can even play it on the piano!

Rock musicians have also created some pretty good holiday music or recorded timeless classics which they’ve adapted to their styles. My personal favorite holiday music from the rock music category would have to be the Band Aid tune “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” which was recorded as part of a huge fundraising effort by the musicians involved. That song always gives me goosebumps, reminding me that there are less fortunate people out there that need help. We – the more fortunate ones – should never forget that because life could’ve been the other way around and we could be the ones needing help.

There’s also a genre of music that has become very popular with the coming of the Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO for short). It’s called the rock opera. If you haven’t already heard them, you really should. So I’m posting a YouTube video of TSO performing my favorite TSO tune called “Christmas Eve Sarajevo”. The music totally rocks!

Why Switzerland has the lowest crime rate in the world

I found this on You-tube and thought it was great so I just had to share it with everyone.

When thinking about the mass extermination camps of a holocaust think..

The key to freedom is to be able to have the ability to defend yourself &, if you don’t have the tools to do that, then you’re going to be at the mercy of whomever wants to put you away.

Guns are deeply rooted within Swiss culture – but the gun crime rate is so low that statistics are not even kept.

The country has a population of six million, but there are estimated to be at least two million publicly-owned firearms, including about 600,000 automatic rifles and 500,000 pistols.

This is in a very large part due to Switzerland’s unique system of national defense, developed over the centuries.

Instead of a standing, full-time army, the country requires every man to undergo some form of military training for a few days or weeks a year throughout most of their lives.

Between the ages of 21 and 32 men serve as front-line troops. They are given an M-57 assault rifle and 24 rounds of ammunition which they are required to keep at home.

Once discharged, men serve in the Swiss equivalent of the US National Guard, but still have to train occasionally and are given bolt rifles. Women do not have to own firearms, but are encouraged to.

Let me know what you think about this …………
