Some, maybe even some of you, may find this disgusting, terrible, or shameful. Yet, I was in the living room while my son watched a television show where people were shooting zombies and driving stakes thru their head etc.  So, we're ok with violence and gore and bloodshed of every kind, but disgusted by the sight of the human body.  Why are we suprised then when people go on shooting rampages?  How can politicians like Mitt Romney blame gun violence on broken homes and single parents?
After thought: You know, you don't ever find those doing these shootings doing them naked!!!

The damage after hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast is incredible to see.  This is what is left of the boardwalk at Atlantic City New Jersey.  Maybe Karen and I don't want to own a condo on the beach in Florida in our retirement days.

Big storm within about 3-4 hours from hitting the East Coast in the area of New Jersey.  Jack's son is away at school in upstate New York so we'll hope all goes well for him. 
Happy Birthday wishes go out to my wife Karen who turns, well Happy Birthday my sweet.

Saturday Karen and I went to Disneyland for her birthday. We had a very nice dinner at the Blue Bayou Restaurant.

Friday evening Karen and I went to the football game between the Colony Titans and Chino Cowboys at Chino H.S.  The game was tied 7-7 at the half.  Colony then went into self-destruct mode and gave up 21 points in the third quarter.  We ended up losing the game 28-14.  Colony played terribly, or Chino played real well, depending on how you look at it. 

As I said, the game was played at Chino H.S., which some of you may remember, is my alma mater. I had to watch the game from the visitors side of the field for the first time in my life.  I spent many a cold evening watching the Cowboys play football from those stands shown below.  When I was at Chino H.S. we had a terrible football team every year.  We were known for out basketball and cross country teams back then.

I don't see an orgy going on anywhere in this photo.  Just people all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, enjoying the sun on their skin.  Being completely naked on a beach, with the sun warming your skin, is an experience that I recommend to everyone.
It is said that religious beliefs are like climbing a mountain. Each religious believer, whether he be Christian, Islam, Jewish, Mormon, or Buddhist, all start at the bottom of the mountain. Their beliefs differ widely and they start from different areas of the bottom of the mountain. As they climb, the mountain begins to narrow and their beliefs start to come closer with one another. When you reach the tip of the mountain you find that our beliefs are the same - there is but one God. "One God - many names." You also find that we are all one, and one with God.
Bill Maher has an unique way of telling it like it is.  Take a look.

My son-in-law, Bruce, posted this on Facebook this morning.  I think it is well said.

I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they're voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say," My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood." It's like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You're still complicit. You're still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don't get to walk away clean, because you say you "disagree" with your candidate on these issues.

I headed east on the 60 frwy to ride along the Santa Ana River trail out of Riverside. I got past the 15 frwy and the Santa Ana winds were-a-howlin'. So I did a couple of loops around Puddingstone Lake instead.

It was a nice day at Puddingstone Lake, with clear skies and temps in the low 80's.  Saw lots of rabbits, squirrels, and ducks on the pond.  Did 20 miles in all. 

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Jaclyn Smith, aka "Kelly Garrett" from the original "Charlie's Angeles, who turns 67 years young today.


"It" could mean any number of things!!!
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton who turns 65 years young today.

I just love this photo of them

Mitt Romney got his butt kicked in the third presidential debate.
