Made in......?

Nice looking paper weight, don't ya think?

Pretty Patriotic and religious"God Bless America". But I think you should look at the next picture.

Too bad it's Made In China!

Hundreds of thousands of flags I've seen are also made in china. How did it escalade into this? Into them making the only thing our country has to believe in. We're not even profitting off it, by having workers in our own country produce our own flag! Sad really.

Update:A nice lady pointed out I was not intirely correct. No offense to any other country.... I just thought the whole thing was odd. I just wish things were easy and simple to make the flags in our own country, and make them somehow cheap like China. Is that so hard to Imagine? Or to do? I really don't think so.
The question I have is, what do we make for other countries? Certainly not their flags I'm pretty sure.
She's in my comments and I tried to reply back as best as I could. Then I realized I did not explain myself very well in this particular post.
We all make mistakes.

Music to my ears?

Picture taken of the Redford Township Connection

Music helps you use both the right and the left side of your brain. It also puts children in the right frame of mind to learn. As the article says exposure to music on a regular basis enhances the ability to think and process in three dimentions.
It is said to make the brain release serotonin which is calming, it aids sleep by releasing melatonin, and dopamine which when released boosts motor skills.
See, thats why I laugh when I hear that the music was the culprit behind anything.
At worst, the best complaint I've heard is the lyrics are bad for the children. But thier just words. Maybe if we didn't make such a big deal out of it, it wouldn't BE as big of a deal. I guess if everyone thought of words like I do, less people would get offended.
It's not like I've never got offended by certain words, but it has been years. All I'm saying is maybe we take things a little too seriously and need to calm down a bit. Now I'm getting off track. Music has gotten me through a lot of hard times and I think if anything, it's kept me sane(along with a couple beers).

My love is music, and I will continue to play and listen, untill I die.
That may be just a little extreme.

Extra note if you've checked out any of my google pages? I havn't had a chance untill now to work on them. Small problem that is now fixed, I apoligize.

I call this one,
Look out.

You may have seen this on Televison for some commercial. I think it was Geico or Vonage. Funny stuff. You may comment if you know the answer to that question. Or if you just feel like it, comment away!

If you can get through the blah blah blah....
I never knew I had so much to talk about?


Going to the Lions preseason game tonight with my older brother.The picture has nothing to do with the Lions, but I thought it was kinda cool.
I don't really care if they win or lose, but I know it's going to be fun. Got the tickets from Conrad, a guy I work with. I'm just glad that I'm actually getting out of the house and doing something, rather than doing the same thing. Which its still fun hangin out with my friends. This is just something different though. I'm into change. Lately my life is changing everyday, and for the better. If you can believe it? To tell you the truth I can't. But I do hope that continues. I have a weird feeling it will.

Did today last forever or what?
That reminds me of something....Waking Up!
First of all, waking up early has never been appealing to me. In fact I can't stand it. As the saying goes "It's for the birds". I'am naturally a night person and in all ways have been. If I ever get the chance to work in the afternoon(and get paid well) I would take it. Because the nights are my playground, and I could be unstoppable. (In a sense of course.) I'm the type of person who hears the birds chirping and decides it's probably time to go to sleep, rather than to wake up.
Too many things are based around waking up early in the morning. I've heard too many times the assumption that people are lazy because they didn't wake up early. Implying something like that to me doesn't go over so well, if you can imagine. What they don't know is what time they might of went to sleep. They obviously were either tired, or just like to sleep, and whats wrong with that? Dosen't everyone in the world need sleep? I shouldn't really rip on those people because they don't know any better. My whole life has been based on waking up early. It started with school and continued from there.
Unfortunately I have a slight case of insomnia. Let me tell ya it's not a vacation. I say slight because I've never seen a doctor about it. But after this many years of trying different things to remedy it. I'm positive I have it. Maybe someday I'll see a doctor.
Okay I'm done. That was a lot to type in about 10 minutes of my mind spewing out on to the blog. Sleep well........

By reading this blog, you might think I'm crazy,negative,humorous,or even irrational when or if you finish. But I'm sure of one thing, we are all a little bit of each one whether you like to believe it or not. Just keep an open mind to all the things that come to you in life and in this Blog.

Eventually I'll have something positve to say.

The littlest things get on my nerves!

Yep I'll admit it.

Today good ol' Burger King. What do they say in their ad/commercials? I believe its "Have it your way"(have you seen the stickers they have on their doors now).Anyways ordering two double cheese burgers, for my brother and my sister. I was very specific, one was a meal and the other just the burger, then the rest was what I wanted. They did give me one, but not the other. I walk back in and a worker gave me the "in a moment" finger with a head set on. He asked me if had been helped way after I was helped already. But back to the same lady that rang me up. Apparently the lady did not ring it up on the register. Of course she's not even going to consider that she could have made a mistake. So It sounded, and looked to her as if I was lying I'm sure, receipt or not. Right before me a lady had to come in with a burger that was wrong for her kid. Well lets just say she gave me a hard time. Obviously not a Burger King that is ran very well. So I paid for it and bit my tongue because I know how it is.
I worked at a Burger King myself. Not much has changed though I'll tell ya that.

The other day was referred to Target, from Office Depot for a audio cord on my computer. A guy that worked there at Target tried to help. I pretty much knew what I was looking for but I thought maybe he did know what he was talking about. So I took his advice on a cord he said would work. It didn't. So I took it back. No problem there though. It turns out they don't have what I'm looking for either. So Target is still okay in my book. Oh well. I feel better now that I got all that out.

Luckily I don't flip out.... Usually?(just kidding)

The beginning of my watermelons(Their called SWEET MELONS). Hairy though aren't they?

Pictures of last nights sunset.

I would have to say the watermelons are coming along nicely.
