The hypocrisy

Another republican senator gets busted for inappropriate conduct. What strikes me funny and sad is that since the Bill Clinton/Monica Levinsky incident there have been now 5 Republican sex scandals. Senator Larry Craig from Idaho now is another fine example of the hypocritical morally correct Republican attitude. He of course denies any such activity, but funny thing is he was "fingered" in a congressional page sex scandal as far back as 1982. Check out the youtube clip.

Yikes the hypocrisy.

James Dean PSA

This PSA with James Dean was done very shortly before he died in 1955 and it is almost unreal that it is about "driving careful." James Dean is in a Cowboy outfit as this PSA was done as he was in a break during the movie Giant.

A little reminder

Not that I really need a reminder for that amazing occasion. :-)

W Hotel Atlanta

Amy and I went to Atlanta friday night to celebrate our anniversary and had a very nice dinner at Nickiemoto's in midtown. We then spent the night at the W Hotel Atlanta and really found it to be a very impressive hotel in terms of design and style.

Pics won't do it justice but here are a few anyway.

Today is the 30 year anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley and I wanted to post a few images of him as a small homage.

Elvis as most people know him.

Elvis spent 2 years in the military in Germany south of Frankfurt.

Elvis's cheat sheet for a German children's song with phonetic notes that he later recorded as the song "Wooden heart."

Oh yes

During Sunday's Sportsbarn Sprint triathlon I had the fastest bike split overall and I even won my age group. :-)

Results here.

2 races in 2 days

This weekend I'll be racing 2 triathlons, basically one each day.
So today I'll do the Mountain Lakes triathlon in Guntersville, AL and tomorrow I'll race the Sportsbarn Sprint triathlon in Chattanooga, TN.
Both races should be great, but tomorrow's race has a very special meaning in terms of my relationship with Amy. :-)

Smokefree in TN

I have been envious of people living in California mostly because of the smokefree legislation. It is finally happening here and by October 1 all work places and restaurants in Tennessee have to be smokefree.

The law was actually passed a few months ago, but very few folks seem to know it.
So here is a big and enthusiastic thumbs up to the TN Lawmakers.

Big wedding, small wedding

This weekend Amy and I attended a big wedding and while it was very nice, I am very happy that Amy and I see eye to eye in terms of us just having a very small wedding.

This very cute little sheep was born with 7 legs in New Zealand. :-(
