Music Monday (Blow Me Away)

Blow me away by Breaking Benjamin. I like the part with "only the strongest survive."

Going Fishing at the Lake

Thanks for the article from Graham Burton

My dad and I go out fishing about once a week. I think that's part of the benefit of living pretty close to a lake. We have been doing this since I was about twelve. We get up really early, pack up all the gear and set the Adt monitoring center. Sometimes, the sun isn't even up when we get to the lake. It is so quiet out there and we don't even have to talk very much to have a good time.

We don't always catch something, but it is never a waste to go. Spending time with my dad has become more important the older I get. Just having something in common and hanging out enjoyable. Of course, the trips aren't always uneventful. The last time we went, the boat capsized and we both headed overboard. Needless to say, the fish certainly weren't biting much after that. But, we had a good laugh together and ended up coming home soaking wet. At least we salvaged most of the bait and none of the poles were lost. We did however lose at least one of the fishing hats my dad keeps tucked inside his tackle box. I wasn't too worried. He still has three others.

Music Monday

My family is thinking if fighting for freedom has an end. It is tiring when we constantly have to fight until to our last breath. I hope this movie have some sort of meaning...that eventually we can be free again...but the question is...WHEN?

I Love the History Channel

I appreciate the guest post, Lindsay Valdez

The History Channel has to be one of my favorite educational channels to watch on directtv. There are so many different interesting shows to watch. These shows are not only educational, but also very entertaining. I remember watching some of these documentaries in school, and was not that interested in them. Now I can sit for hours just watching the History Channel. I feel much more educated after I watch the programs this channel has to offer. One of my favorite shows is Modern Marvels. This show goes into detail on how things work. From aircraft carriers to the first wheels, this show covers it all. You can find out how the simplest to the most complex things came to play.

Another great show is Chasing Mummies. Since my husband is from Egypt and I always had a love for this country and its history, this show really amazes me. Going deep inside the pyramids and discovering hidden treasures from decades ago is so enticing and really keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you are looking for a channel that educates and entertains, I highly suggest the History Channel.

Pursuing Freedom Is Not a Crime

I was talking to one of my social network friends about where I stand about the government, and it turns out (in her opinion) that I am rebellious towards my own government. She basically don't know where she stand about her freedom in my opinion.

She does not live in the same country, but I came from and born the country where she reside. She is the kind of person that I call neo-whatever. She likes it when she benefited on something but refuses to work for it, just like most Americans are.

Pursuing freedom is rebellion towards my government the way she put it. Ahh, you mean I am rebelling towards my own government, the government I put in power...that is interesting. NO! I am being sarcastic here...geez, you can see how people are brain wash these days.
